It depends on the type of curl. My FH has long ringlets. His hair is so curly he can’t put it behind his ears. When he was a toddler he had beautiful blonde curls but when he got his hair cut he lost time. He has grown his hair long and shaved his head a few times over the years. I’ve never seen his hair short in person but I have seen photos. His hair stays “straight” but is quite thick and full when short until it reaches about his ears and then it starts to curl.
That might explain why some babies “lose their curls” when they cut their hair short but then they reappear later on
Those curls…so sweet! It’s hard to say if they will still that way as their hair changes so much over the years as they grow up. My daughter had gorgeous wavy long wavy hair, the kind you see on models with the beach hair that have their hair professionally curled, from 3-6. I always thought it would stay this way, but over the last two years it has totally straightened out. Her waves are now all gone and her hair is straight, but still gorgeous and thick and lighter in colour too. I miss the waves, but I love how her hair looks now too. Don’t cut his hair yet – keep those curls for as long as you can.
Conversely my husband had straight hair until he was 13, then he got it cut very very short, and it grew back curly! And now it’s the curliest hair ever!!
My hair has always been wavy n curly. Both my kids had curly hair and it became straight around 5yrs
Who knows really. My husbnd has curly hair (Although he doesn’t like it so he always either keeps it short or blowdries it straight.) but it was pretty straight from the time he was a baby/toddler to when he was around 13-14.
Right now my two year old son has very straight, white blonde hair so I’m interested to see what’ll happen to it as it gets older. Both myself and my husband were light blonde when we were toddlers (Mine stayed blonde til I was ten and my husband’s started darking eariler at around 4-5.) where as we are both medium/dark brunette now. I expect my son will go the same way eventuallty (and he may or may not develop curls later on too.) I guess only time will tell!
And just for fun here’s a picture of my son from his second birthday last month!
They will probably go away, but come back at puberty. That’s what happened to me and my 11 year old daughter
The folks over at reddit.com/r/curlyhair would love this! I’m sure they’ll have some good insight too. Gorgeous curls btw!
If you stick them in a bag once you cut them off he can certainly keep them!
I’m not an expert, I just have my own experiences.
I had beautiful ringlets as a toddler. As my hair grew longer most of it was dead straight and just the ends had ringlets. And then when my hair was cut short, it was all straight for many years.
Post-puberty my hair became wavy and as I get older it gets wavier and wavier, and is almost curly now. Doesn’t have those ringlets though, haha.
I guess it depends on genetic factors. My mum had very thin, fine straight hair, while my dad has thick curly hair. I take after my dad.
Do you or your SO have curly hair? If not then these are probably just baby curls.
So hard to know! My husband had bone straight hair as a little kid and then at some point it turned curly and stayed curly. So I’m not sure if the same thing could happen with curly hair going straight but seems to be within the realm of possibility. Your son’s curls are so adorable!!
