    Cute baby photos may be a dime a dozen on the Internet, but one seven-month-old baby Chanco from Japan has recently got social media users cooing with delight – all because of her luscious locks.

    Baby Chanco was born in December 2017 with a full head of thick, black hair – rarely seen in children of her age.

    As of Friday, the little Instagram sensation has gained more than 147,000 followers on what her mother has called her “hair diary”.

    Instagram user houseofholl said: “She’s just the most precious! My baby is 9 months and has some decent hair but hers is amazing!”

    Some others, however, appear to still be in disbelief.

    “But how does she have so much hair?!” asked user annaecraig.
