In brief: Normal

Newborns often can lose their whole head of hair (due to decreasing hormones)- but don't worry- it will grow back.
And when it does it may be a different color, texture, etc. This is all normal.

In brief: Genetics

As the baby grows, various genes get activated while others may get inactivated.
It's the change in the millions of gene activation/inactivation that leads to changes as the baby matures. It is natural and is part of natural growth.
