My daughter is 16 months and she has very little hair. When she was first born she had some hair but then it all fell out. I have bought little clips to put in her hair already but really she doesn't have enough hair to keep them in. I feel like i'm the only one out there that has a daughter will almost no hair.

My little girl is nearly 17 months and has hardly any hair. I always dress her in pink because of this, but have lost count of the amount of people you meet in the street who refer to her as a boy, so annoying!!

my daughter is almost 3 and still dosent have enough hair to hold a clip, and to add to that she keeps twirling it and makes a huge knot that is imposable to get out, which she either pulls out and hands it to you before you see it or you have to cut it out, and it is driving me insane she has beautiful blonde curly hair, so you are not the only one we walk in the shops and people call her a boy even if she is wearing pink or a dress! sometimes i think " people look at the clothes" all because she has short hair

Nope, you're not alone. My little sweetie has no hair either. In fact, not a one of little girls had a nice head of hair until they were three BUT my son had beautiful long curly locks at a year. Go figure :-)

I have 2 girls, eldest is 3 and didn't have hair I could "play with" until she was almost 2 and only then after I'd taken her for her first haircut. Sounds funny but by getting it cut it seems to encourage new growth (bit like plants, you deadhead to encourage growth ;-D). My youngest (16mths also) is much the same as is a girl at a group we go to. I will be taking youngest for haircut soon and hope the same will apply. However, word of warning once it does grow you then spend half your time fighting to put it "up" as they never sit still!!!!!!

Well my oldest daughter was with out hair until about age 3, when it finally started to grow. I happy to say she now has hair loads of it, it will come in due time! Don't worry! BTW my daughter's name is Samantha and we called her Sammi for short, so she was a boy for the longest time! Even when i dressed her in pink dresses!

A lady at a hair salon told me that her daughter only had a little bit of hair like my daughter, and she would take a little drop of clear karo syrup and put it on a bow, and then put it in her daughters hair and it would stay put, and she said it washes right out. Good Luck!

My daughter will be 16 months tomorrow and shes basically bald! Itll probably be another year atleast before I can put piggytails in her hair! Its so frustrating because part of the fun of having a baby girl is doing her hair up all cute!

I finally got my daughter after 2 boys and alot of people think she is a boy. She is always dressed girly wearing pink, purple, dresses and always girl clothes. She does not have alot of hair and she likes having what she has combed. I am so looking forward to when I can do something with her hair. She is so girly- she even likes having her nails cut.

Honestly give her a scalp massage. It stimulates blood floor to the scalp. People ALWAYS comment a couple of days after I give my daughter a scalp massage that her hair looks longer.

I know exactly how you feel. My daughter's hair is finally starting to grow in the back but it seems as though she has no bangs. Drives me crazy. I have so many bretts and headbands no there is no way I can use them.

My daughter has almost no hair, as well. I did find some clips that would stay in her hair from Bitty Bow Boutique--they're more expensive than Wal-Mart or Target, but they're super cute, and they are absolutely the only thing that will stay in.
