why has my son still got baby hair?

I would have to say if it feels like straw you might want to use an intensive conditioner. Most baby hair should feel fine, soft, and silky. As babies get older and their hair fills in it will tend to look thicker, feel more course, and either stay the same color or darken. If his hair felt like straw from the time he was born and hasn't changed you might want to consult a dr. Does it seem like there are other issues as well? Does he seem like he doesn't always have the energy other kids do? loses or gains weight easily? Goes to the bathroom a lot or not enough compared to what he drinks? always seems thirsty?
Straw-like hair is usually associated with a hormone or thyroid problem. If it doesn't seem to be helped with regular conditioning and proper hair care I would talk to your pediatrician about possible causes and if this could be a symptom of something bigger.
