Q:

my baby had more hairs on his head when he born. but now it's less. whether this kind of hair fall on newborns are normal ? is it recommended to apply few drops of castor oil on his scalp? suggestions pls!



It's normal as birth hair sheds. No need for any applications.

Sonali - Does applying castor oil is harmful ?

my baby is 7 months now, still she has hair on upperlips and forehead.. what to do??

Castor oil is very thick and sticky hence difficult to wash off. It's not harmful but it will also not cause hair growth.
