8-week-old baby with oodles of hair gets a blow dry

Music 18/10/2016
A baby has caused a stir online after footage of its extremely hairy head getting blow-dried emerged on the internet.

Two-month-old Junior Cox-Noon has a mop most would expect on a two-year-old, and that combined with his adorably chubby cheeks proved entertaining enough to get the video more than 200,000 views.

And Junior's mother Chelsea Noon says she has no plans to put a stop to the growth in the near future.

"I definitely don't want to cut it. I want to see how long it actually does grow out. I don't know where his hair has come from - it's like a big ball of candy floss," she told Cosmopolitan.

Junior emerged from the womb with an impressive amount of hair, and his mother says its magic even extends to its ability to not fall out.

"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," Ms Noon said.

Ms Noon says a number of doctors have been unable to explain his hair growth.
