There is a small patch on my boy head which is hairless.
Any sugguestion what can be done to help the hair grow.
He is about 15 mths now
My nephew also have this prob... but he outgrow it now... those hair just took longer time to grow out.. if you worry can shave your baby hair and let them re-grow again...
But, personally I feel shaving and shaving may help though I never tried. Even thou dear son was balding coz he pulled his own hair when he was a NB (luckily now grew out oredi) I never wanted to shave for him coz looks so cute w hair.. Haha.
Also heard from my mother in law, can rub some XO on those hairless patches.. dont scold me.. Old wives tales...

Yup I think keep shaving ... let the hair regrow again n again think it'll turn out nicely eventually! That's what i'm planning to do... 2 more weeks my boy's gonna be BOTAK!!! (Though he already dont have much hair haha...)
Intend to shave eyebrows too!! They say shaving eyebrows make baby more 'WANG' (prosperous??)
Some ppl even cut the lashes... aww...think i'll skip that! My cousin cut her son's lashes n whenever he blinks his eyes it hurts! Poor thing.....!!
Anybody did the 'TAIMAO BI' (Scholar Brush) from your baby's hair? Thinking of doing it...
i thought of shaving my girl hair but my dad nagg me not to... saying that she got hair so nice...no need to shave ... n said that he didn't shave our hair before when i was baby just trim will do...n warn me if i shave i will get it from him sigh... thought of doing TAIMAO BI also seem my dear daughter got lots of hair but now cant .....
anyone needs my testimonials on end product from shaving baby hair?
hahaha... weird father
my boy when he was 5 months old....
OMg... cute lehz... save shampoo somemore :P
hai my mom always suggest me to rub celery juice on my gals head (coz her hair thin), thou i have not't do it yet coz always forgot to buy celery when go pasar.
and rub aloe vera would help too, this one my mom do it on my head when i was a kid and my hair was quite thick back then. Also once a week she would rub coconut milk (fresh one squeezed from grated coconut) then put lime juice (the small green lime) to make the hair shiny. these all my mom do on my hair back then...i want to try on my gals hair but maybe when she's older and can stand up most of the time coz these treatment need to stay on the head for couple of mins then rinse off (like hair mask but natural one hehe).
i also never shave baby head untill botak coz i feel so sad to see baby hairless but then we trim so the hair on equal length. o ya, when baby was 2 weeks old, she naturally shed her eyebrows! really botak!
i was quite worry it won't grew back.
but then it grew back before her 1 full month... atleast can see bit haha..
now her eyebrow grow tidy as if i trimmed them.. quite some ppl aksing me wether i do that to baby hahaa
yr DDs hair still quite thin horz....like my boy last time....
but now he got more hair ....dont know shaved how many times ...
