Posted October 25, 2018 05:37:30Baby hair starts in the womb, but what’s its growth like in the months that follow?
In India, newborns’ hair starts out as white, fluffy white hair, but by two months of age, it’s usually dark.
“The hair of a newborn grows in two phases,” says Dr G. Jayesh Prasad, a professor of cosmetic surgery at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.
“At birth, it is white, and at two months it is dark.”
At the age of two months, the hair is more likely to develop and become thicker and darker.
At four months, it will become white, while at six months, its thickening and darkening will continue,” he adds.
In the weeks and months to come, hair will turn dark brown and curly, and its color will become dark and glossy.
The same pattern of growth will repeat itself in the weeks after delivery, Prasar adds.
At this stage, hair becomes almost white and becomes very thick and shiny, he says.
The reason behind the length of hair that develops in newborns is unclear. “
This is when the child begins to shed hair.”
The reason behind the length of hair that develops in newborns is unclear.
Many experts agree that the baby hair is not yet fully formed.
It is also unclear whether the length changes with the baby’s age, because hair growth is influenced by other factors such as diet, diet quality, body condition, sleep habits and social environment, according to Dr Sudarshan Kumar, an assistant professor of dermatology at Jawaharlal Nehru University.
Dr Prasan explains that the hair grows in the follicles in the back of the head, the area between the eyes.
Hair follicles are made up of keratin, the same protein found in hair, and this is the material that gives the hair its color.
This type of hair is thicker than the hair that grows around the eyes, so it may be more prone to shedding during pregnancy.
At the end of the follicle, hair is shed at different stages, depending on the growth stage of the baby.
Some of the hair on the face grows faster than others, and can take years to fully develop.
While the growth process is not uniform, Prashanth says, the shorter the hair, the thicker the hair will be.
For some people, a newborn’s hair may be very short, Prasar adds.
For others, a baby will develop hair with a similar length to a human hair.
