  • Nothing. The hair will grow when it grows.

  • Time always works. There's nothing you can do to a toddler's hair to make it grow faster. I would avoid using a shampoo not intended for babies because it will burn their eyes. It's not worth it.

  • Leave it, it will grow. One of my boys was bald for a long time, and the other two were born with thick hair. They all have thick beautiful hair now. Probably the one who didn't have much hair for the longest time has the most.

  • It will grow on its own. My DD had hardly any hair then about after a year it started to slowly grow. Now it grows fast and its to the middle of her back.

  • Have genes for early hair growth.

  • It will grow at it's own pace.

  • A healthy diet will help somewhat. But, it's going to grow at it's own pace... no matter what you do!!

  • My daughter's hair didn't start really growing until she turned 2. Everyone thought she was a boy. It will grow when it grows. What's the rush??

  • Besides what has already been said, don't overbrush it - I mean like the 100 strokes that ouir grandmothers used to do. Toddler hair is fragile and overbrushing will break and split it - in other words give you the impression that it's growing more slowly than it actually is.

  • Like everyone else said... it will grow in it's own time. However regular trims ( even when they have hardly any hair at all ) will help it form looking wispy and thin as it gets longer.
