At what age do babies hair change?

Will my baby have curly or straight hair?

Straight hair is considered “recessive.” To put that in simple terms, that means that if one parent gives you two curly haired genes and the other parent gives you a pair of straight-haired genes, you’ll be born with curly hair.

Will baby hair stay curly?

It is possible, as you mentioned, that the weight of her hair is what is making it straight on top. It is also possible that those curls you are seeing are from her “baby hair,” and that sadly they will be gone after you cut her hair.

How can you tell if a baby will have red hair?

In order to be a redhead, a baby needs two copies of the red hair gene (a mutation of the MC1R gene) because it is recessive. This means if neither parent is ginger, they both need to carry the gene and pass it on — and even then they will have just a 25% chance of the child turning out to be a redhead.

Can two straight haired parents have a curly-haired baby?

Having said that, two parents, having straight hair or wavy hair, carrying the gene for curly hair which does not express it as a result of incomplete dominance, can reproduce curly-haired offspring. If both parents have curly hair, it is more likely to inherit that trait of curly hair.
