Hair: A quick remedy is hair coloring but if you want other options you may want to go to the doctor to see if there are other options for coloring your gray hair.

Correct Zinc, Vit B or other nutritional deficiencies. Vegans are at risk for Vit B12 deficiencies. 3. Ensure that your thyroid is healthy. 4. Diets> Eggs are rich in biotin.

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Simplicity is best: Babies' hair requires very little extra attention other than normal bathing activity every 2-3 days. Simple water, with a little gentle baby soap or dove soap is more than adequate. For children with cradle cap that is causing hair to break off, there are some simple cures, such as baby oil. For more advanced treatments, consult your pediatrician.

A better...: A better question is, what does he need it for? There is wide genetic variability in how much hair a newborn has or when it begins to grow, and the elders of your family will probably remember how bald either or both parents had been back then, but all babies will have a full head of hair by 2 years at the latest.

No: There is some evidence that it helps in growing pubic hair in women who don't have any. It can help reduce the effects of aging skin, but there is no evidence that it helps hair growth.
