As it often happens, babies are born either bald or with a small amount of hair on their heads. But there is one family in the UK in which babies are born with a real shock of hair.
The Shelton family at first glance are the most ordinary residents of the town of Northampton. But soon they became famous not only in their hometown, but all over the British Isles.
Shelton has two sons: George and Stanley and they were born with a very unusual feature – thick and long hair on their heads.
When the eldest son, George, was born, the doctors had to request scissors in the delivery room. After all, the baby’s hair completely covered his eyes, their length was up to the tip of his nose. But the most interesting thing is that his hair grew at an incredible rate. In the first six months of George’s life alone, he was cut three times.
The only thing is, the kid really didn’t like to get a haircut. When the boy was taken to the barber shop for the first time, the master was so surprised that she asked permission to take a picture of him. She had never seen such long hair in small children.
When George was four years old, he had a brother. And what do you think? Stanley the kid was also very hairy. And when he turned two months old, his hair straightened and grew exclusively vertically.
As the father of the family says, “it feels like he was electrocuted.” And mom has to style the baby’s hair with gel, so that they can somehow calm down. “The boy is unlikely to ever be able to wear a hat. She just can’t hold on to his head,” his mom jokes.
