This 8-Week-Old Baby Probably Has More Hair Than You

When he was born with a full head of hair, everyone thought he'd eventually lose it. He didn't.

When your mom used to be a hair dresser, it's only fitting that you rock a cool 'do. But when you're only 8 weeks old, doing so can certainly raise a few eyebrows at the supermarket. Just ask mom-of-three Chelsea Noon, 32, who says surprised shoppers often stop to do a double-take when they see her tiny son Junior rocking an awesomely puffy hairstyle

"Usually it takes me about 40 minutes to do my weekly shop in Asda," she explained to the Mirror. "Now it takes me two hours. Everyone stops and says: 'Oh my god look at the baby's hair!'"

It's not hard to see why! Just check out that incredible mane:

So amazing!

When Junior was first born with a head full of hair, Chelsea figured the little guy would eventually lose it. "It was quite thick but everybody said it would stop and that a lot of it would fall out," she recalled. "He hasn't lost any—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....I don't know where his hair has come from it's like a big ball of candy floss." (AKA cotton candy to those across the pond.)

Luckily, the former stylist—who has taken to calling her son Baby Bear because, well, "He looks like a little bear,"—has no plans to cut those delicious locks off any time soon.

"I definitely don't want to cut it," she said. "I want to see how long it actually does grow out."

So do we! Mama Bear might want to invest in a bigger dryer, though.
