Hi Jasmine. Hair growth is mostly affected by the genes. You may refer to the following links which are of some of the previous parent talks on the same issue. You will find advice from Dr. Vaneet Parmar in the frst link.

Since hair is made out of protein, a diet rich in protein may help improve hair growth. Soya, beans (rajma, black eyed beans), green vegs, dry fruits, milk and even sea food are good sources of protein. You may give your daughter a diet rich in proteins but please take care not to give her too much as excessive protein may have negative effects. Hope this helps :)

Hello Jasmine, I had the same concern when my daughter was 1. 5 yrs ... I consulted her doc, he told me that wait till 2. 5 yrs of her age, as the actual texture and volume of hair can be seen after that only. And I kept giving her an egg daily ...not only for hair but for overall health of her . We had get her head shaved only once when she was 11 months at the time off Mundan and never again... Now my daughter is almost 4. 5 and she has long lovely curly hair ... and I used think same as u jasmine that my daughtes should have my kind of hair ... and that wish is true now :) So don't worry too much about it... Give her some more time and as said by Anurima too, protein diet .... And she will have lovely hair as yours .. :)

my son also had very light hair... as almond oil is quite hot.. so i decide to use during winters... i started last yr oct onwards daily i used to apply almond oil.. i believe his hair are getting somewht thick.. i think u keep on using almond oil and give alond to eat as well, it surely will help.
