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.
What causes hair texture changes?
Things like stress, chemical hair treatments, heat styling and aging all contribute to the texture of your hair. With all of these things considered, you will see a change in your hair’s texture throughout your lifetime.
