Meet Chanco, the Japanese baby who is only seven months old and has taken the internet by storm.

When you think of a baby, you imagine them having a tiny and adorable chrome dome head. Even at seven months, you wouldn’t expect to see more than a few stray hairs growing out of their scalps. But have you ever seen a baby with a full set of hair? Well, then you probably haven’t met a baby from Japan named Chanco. This little girl is only seven months old and she was born with a feature that sets her apart from all of the other babies. Obviously, she’s totally cute, but she’s also got thick, luscious hair that most grownups would pay for, and it’s all real, baby!

Chanco was born in December 2017 with thick black hair, which was quite a surprise to her parents. Over time, they expected the baby’s hair to become lighter, which is pretty common in babies her age, but that didn’t happen.

Usually, babies who are born with lots of hair tend to lose it by the time they’re 32 to 36 weeks old.

But so far, Chanco’s soft hair, called lanugo, has continued to grow and it doesn’t seem like it intends to slow down. And what’s more, her mom decided that she would start documenting the progress of Chanco’s hair and shared it on social media.
