Babies in the first year tend to have scanty hair and also loose hair. This will grow in the second year. Shaving the head does not promote hair growth as it is a very external action and does not affect the roots at all. You must also show the pediatrician to rule out a vitamin deficiency which can easily be supplemented.

This is generally a B group vitamin which should be prescribed by the doctor as dose will be weight and age dependant.
