  • It is true, my middle daughter had little hair, I shaved what little she had and it came back a full head of hair.

  • eh, I guess it CAN be true for some. But I know several peach fuzz babies from different families who are adults now, and have very thin/fine/downy hair.

    All of my babies were born with massive amounts of hair, and have extremely thick hair now. I was the same.

  • I dunno, both my kids have a TON of hair now, very thick. They are 11 and 16. Both just had "fuzz" for the first year or so, so maybe it's true lol

  • I don't think you can really tell how their hair will be by baby hair. DD's was very thick and 1 inch long when she was born. She has very thick fine hair now.

  • My boys were all pretty bald until they were almost 2 and they have quite thick hair now. But both hubby and I have very thick hair so I think that has more to do with it.

  • doubt it.

    my middle dd has short coarse hair, that just doesn't grow - it was barely to her shoulders, we cut it, and its been 2 years and its barely to the shoulders.

  • I think it's all genetics. My daughter was born with a full head of hair. My husband's side has relatively thick hair and my side has thick hair so odds are she's going to have thick hair as well. I have ridiculously thick hair. It's a monstrosity, really. I don't think it has anything to do with how much she had at birth.
