Why do people shave a baby's hair off when it doesn't make the grow any faster?

In brief: Personal choice
Some babies hair falls of in patches and some parents rather it look even.
Some parents have the belief it will come in better if it is all shaven. In the end it does not hurt the baby and it will certainly grow back.
