Mother of a wild-haired baby, ten weeks old, with thick, soft locks that grow in all directions and that won’t stop growing. She loves her daughter’s unique tresses and hopes they keep that way.
- Arla Lewis, a baby girl who is ten weeks, has hair that sticks in every direction
- Mum Aliyah (20) from Barry in Wales claims her daughter Aliyah’s hair will not stop growing
- A TikTok photo of a child’s hair has been liked hundreds of times
- Some wonder if the child may have a rare disorder or a protein allergy.
TikTok was used by a mother to record her newborn daughter after her hair became unruly.
Arla was born to Aliyah Lewis from Barry Island in Wales 10 weeks ago.
She was shocked when, after Arla’s first shower, her hair continued to grow outwards. It has not stopped since.
Now, she has over 22,000 followers online. Many of her fans have asked if she suffers from uncontrollable hair syndrome.

The baby has thick, curly hair and a mousy colour that is difficult to manage.
TikTok’s fluffy hair has been a huge hit and resembles a baby chick rather than a human.
When asked about her daughter’s hair, she said: “It just doesn’t stay down at any time.”
“I tried brushing it but nothing happened.”
It goes down when it’s wet and it then goes straight up again two minutes after it has dried.
“She could wear a hat for 30 mins, then you take it off and it’s back in a matter of minutes.”
Arla’s soft, fluffy hair is the talk of her family. Friends and family are also big fans.
Aliyah shared that “random people have stopped and commented on my hair when I’m out of town.”
“Everyone in my family thinks it’s insane.”
No matter what the day brings, no matter how the weather, baby Arla’s hair will always be straight up.
Baby Arla is often harassed by strangers on the streets, who want to see why she has such large hair.

Barry, south Wales: Mum and dad (pictured here swimming with Arla) say that they love their daughter’s hair and won’t change it.
Adam, 22 years old, pictured saying that his daughter’s locks are funny and quite nuts and that he doesn’t think it should change.
TikTok fans went crazy for the baby’s hair. Some said that she looked like someone had been drinking Helium.
Adam, 22-year old Adam’s partner, is secretly hoping Arla’s locks stay the same for years to follow.
She stated that she liked it and Adam disagrees.
TikTok users love the locks so much that some say she resembles an lion, while others claim she inhaled helium.
Aliyah does not believe that hair conditions are due to underlying issues.
She said: ‘I don’t think it’s uncontrollable hair syndrome as that usually tends to be white, almost silvery hair, and Arla’s isn’t like that.
TikTok users have suggested it might be a cow’s milk allergy. However, she has no other symptoms.
“It’s almost like she has her own little personality so it’s important that it stays that way,”
