    My daughter had barely any hair until she was past two.  What was there was blonde, so she looked bald.  Once, when she was somewhere around a year old or so, a woman in the store touched me on the shoulder, and she was laughing hard.  She said, "Oh my goodness!  I thought she was a Cabbage Patch doll until she started to sing."  (My toddler was big for humming tunes.  smile ).   

    My plan had always been to let her take dancing lessons when she was three.  She was two when I brought her to a family member's dance recital, and I thought, "I don't know.  None of those little girls on that stage look bald, the way she does."  Well, by the time she was three she had real hair.  In fact, she had enough hair that I could put it into an up-do made of lots of curls (although it took a lot of gel to be able to get the curls to stay in).   She had fine hair, but it was like a lot of other little kids her age had. 

    By the time she was four (and right up to today - she's in her twenties now), she has had the most beautiful "shampoo ad" hair.  It's perfect hair - healthy, shiny, not too thick, not too think. 

    So, after all that story-telling, I'll get to the point:  Don't worry about your little girl's hair.  It will grow. 

    Besides, based on what I see in the picture you have there, it looks to me like your little girl has plenty of hair.   smile   It just needs time to grow longer.  By your name and pictures, it looks like you are from India.  You just haven't been around enough babies of Irish, Scottish, and English parents.  LOL  If you were, you wouldn't be the least bit worried about your little one's hair.   smile

    (I just saw somewhere else you posted that your baby is a year old.  She's got a whole lot of hair for a year old!  It's only fine because she's a baby.)

    My daughter's hair started out just like your daughter's. I was the only one in the family whose baby didn't have enough hair to fit in a hair clip. I found no slippy hair clippy, but once Maria turned two her hair blossomed and has surpassed all of her cousins. Her hair is to her butt now and she's just five. All I do is shampoo and condition it once a week. I also grease her scalp at night with a product called Blue Magic. Hope this helps.

    This is probably going to be the most unconventional answer but, in my culture (South East Asian) we actually shave their hair off (girl or boy). People in our culture believe it's "bad" hair from being in the womb, that it is better to cut it all off so "new/good" hair can regrow. I actually just used a pair of hair clippers and my daughter has beautiful thick hair. Did this when she was about 4-6 months old.

    First, your baby girl, is really cute.  Remember, hair or not, she's still precious.   My oldest son who is now 46 years old,  was bald his first year as a baby.   His hair gradually thickened by the time he was three.  I massaged his little head every day after his baths and before I put him in his crib at night.  There was a little growth response.  But every child's growth is different.  May be you can take her to a specialist of scalp and hair!

      Good nutrition is your best helper! I was born as bald as a billiard ball, but my mom made sure I had a balanced good nutrition as a baby, and I grew hair like you wouln't believe! It took me a year, though, from then on, nobody thought I was a boy.

    Try adding very small quantities of black sesame once a day into the food making sure heat releases the active ingredient first. Also kelp in the diet will top up her iodine deficiency.
    Finally careful addition of small quantities of pure neem oil gently to the scalp.

    Time is the best helper. Keep your babies hair conditioned with natural products that can be found on Amazon and just give it time, some every child is different, some kids are born with a head full of hair and others may not have a lot of hair at birth but it will grow with time and care. Cute Baby!!!

    The babies hair should not be washed with harsh chemicals. It is always best to apply coconut oil in their hair.
    For most of the kids after they are one year old they are made bald which helps in getting new thick hair.

    Massage coconut oil on her head and leave it on.  After you wash her hair, put coconut oil on her hair and leave it until you wash her hair.  Do it constantly.  Most Indian girls have long hair and coconuts trees originate in India.

    My mom used to grow my hair out and cut it short. She repeated this process for my entire childhood.  (When I was four, I had hair down to my butt.  It was straight and thin.)  I am now 27 and my hair is THICK! I like to have it long and I used to have my hair dresser use thinning shears to thin it out.  Now, I have a different hair dresser, and she cuts many layers in my hair which helps.

    Coconut oil! Message it onto then air and scalp and since she is so little rinse it out in a half hour. Check out my hair care hub for more info on long, healthy hair. I am new and could use feedback also. (:

    Your daughter looks great, she just need to run and play!
    Proper food and vitamins they say.
    The tap water quality is said to be important.
    On the other hand, some people shave the heads of the babies, specially indians. This is just an illusion, since the hair is thicker in the root, when it starts growing again seems thicker, but is not true.

    I wouldn't put any heavy hair products in when they're little I would use natural remedies. Take about 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and spread it evenly in her hair then rub her scalp softly for a bout 2 minutes for better circulation. I didn't get hair till I was 2, if it really bothers you try some hats on her while her hair starts to grow.

    Castor Oil smile  down below is some info for you smile

    "Castor oil contains natural compounds that promote hair growth. A large percentage of castor oil contains Ricinoleic acid, one of the essential amino acids required by the human body. It's an Omega-9 fatty acid that can penetrate into the pores of the skin and the hair follicles."

    my cousin was also having the same problem then we used olive oil for this.As this oil is quite viscous, mix the castor oil with an equal amount of coconut, olive, or almond oil. Massage your scalp with it and leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes. Then shampoo your hair.This is the best remedy.i prefer you to use this remedy.

    I second everyone whose mentioned castor oil here! It has worked wonders for my sad, once over-plucked eyebrows as well as my eyelashes and hair.

    I like to mix it with coconut oil because like some others have mentioned it is very, very thick. Massaging this mixture into your daughters scalp about once a week should be beneficial.

    Hi Rabia! As it is known that healthy hair means healthy body it clearly indicates that it is related to good nutrition. Give your baby as much as nutrition as you can so that not only her hair but even her health gains good immunity.  There are kids who do not have hair growth until a very long time. Let me tell you of my daughter who had thin silk like hair.  On the contrary me and my husband have thick luscious hair and when she was born she was bald like all kids. Over a period of about 3 years she developed only thin hair and that too in spots. She was otherwise very healthy but it was only her hair which was posing a problem. Kids in our neighborhood started teasing her and she got very aggressive with it. Eventually we got her head shaved three times after a gap of about 3 months. But it also didn’t seem to help and then came one remedy in my sight which was something I never expected. A friend of mine told me to apply castor oil mixed with olive oil and almond oil on her scalp. I started applying oil on her scalp every 3rd day and trust me within days I could see that there was a visible change in her hair. Now after 8 years her hair are so beautiful and all curly and still very soft like silk. This oil can be mixed with other oils too like coconut oil, mustard oil etc., and just heat it for a few seconds before applying on the scalp. Leave it overnight and wash off with a mild shampoo the next morning. I believe this remedy helps you like it helped me.

    Go to a health food store and find a children's vitamin with biotin and silica in it. Give her Jello gelatin. All three are good for hair, skin, and nails.

    Hair on a baby usually takes time to grow and get thick and there is no magic potent to get it there. All babies should have a healthy diet with the necessary vitamins and trimming will help it grow thicker once they are old enough.
    I would be interested to know after these years what you tried and what the results were. Generally the babies hair will be like the parents in time, regardless.

    If the photo above is your daughter, it looks like her hair growth is appropriate for her age, in general terms. Stimulating the hair follicles by gently massaging her scalp may help. Avoid applying things that will clog her scalp pores. My daughter was born with a full, thick head of hair. Then it all fell out, and baby fuzz came in. It stayed thin for a while, and got thicker as she grew.

    okay, this is going to sound extreme, but if you can stomach it, it is going to grow a thicker head of hair for your toddler and throughout their lifetime. Ready? Shave their head. Yep, that's what I said. Shave it. for a minimum of 16 months and they will have the thickest head of hair from the time you stop forward. Chinese have been doing it for eons.
