For those of you who desire thick, luscious hair, this little boy is about to give you major hair envy.
Meet Junior, whose family has nicknamed him ‘baby bear’ because he looks a little like a teddy bear. Mom, Chelsea Noon, says her son came out of the womb with enough hair on his head to make Big Foot jealous.
“When he was born it was quite thick but everybody said it would stop and that a lot of it would fall out,” Noon said in an interview. However, that big ball of hair stayed in the exact same place and not a strand was lost. “He hasn’t lost any,” Noon said. “There’s none in the cot, none in his little chair or the pram, it’s literally just growing and it grows out not down so it sticks up.”
Noon said running errands has become a lengthy chore because her baby boy always raises questions from curious strangers. “Usually it takes me about 40 minutes to do my weekly shop in Asda and now it takes me two hours,” she said.
“The doctors say they are amazed and have never seen a baby with so much hair in all the time they have been working. Everyone’s shocked.”
As a former hairdresser, Chelsea has no plans to give Junior’s distinctive hair a chop any time soon. “I definitely don’t want to cut it, I want to see how long it actually does grow out. I don’t know where his hair has come from it’s like a big ball of candy floss.”
