A mother has taken tik tok to document her newborn daughter, after her hair started standing up in all directions.
Aliyah Lewis, from Barry Island, Wales, gave birth to Arla 10 weeks ago.
But he was surprised when, after Arla’s first bath, her hair kept growing out and didn’t stop.
He now has 22,000 fans online and says many followers have questioned whether he has uncontrollable hair syndrome or an allergy to cow protein.

The baby has reddish-colored hair that sticks out in all directions and refuses to lie down, even when his mother puts a hat on him.
The fluffy hair, which has become a hit on TikTok, resembles that of a chick, rather than that of a human baby.
Speaking of her daughter’s hair, the new mum said: ‘It just doesn’t stay down at all.
‘I’ve tried brushing it and nothing happens.
“When it’s wet, it goes down and then two minutes after the bath, it goes back up.
“She could be wearing a hat for 30 minutes, you take it off and in a couple of minutes she’s back on.”
While Arla’s ‘fluffy’ hair is the talk of her parents, friends and family, as well as strangers, they are also fans.
Aliyah added: “Random people have stopped me when I’m out and about, commenting on her hair.
Everyone in the family thinks it’s crazy.
Whatever the day, whatever the weather, whatever clothes she wears, baby Arla’s hair will always stay straight up.
Baby Arla is the subject of curious looks from people on the street, who want to know why her hair is so big.

Both the mum and dad (pictured taking Arla swimming) from Barry, South Wales, say they love their daughter’s hair and don’t want to change it.
Dad Adam, 22, pictured here, says his daughter’s hair is fun and pretty crazy and he doesn’t want it to change.
TikTok fans went wild over the baby’s hair, with some saying it looked like he had been drinking helium.
She and her partner Adam, 22, secretly hope Arla’s hair stays the way it is for years to come.
She said: ‘To be honest, I quite like her’, while Adam thinks she’s ‘funny’ and ‘pretty crazy’.
And TikTok users have gone crazy for the locks: some say it looks like a lion, and others say it looks like it’s inhaled helium.
But while some people have questioned whether the hair condition is due to an underlying problem, Aliyah doesn’t think this is the case.
She said: ‘I don’t think it’s uncontrollable hair syndrome, as it usually tends to be white, almost silver hair, and Arla’s isn’t like that.
“And some people on TikTok have said it may be a cow’s milk allergy, but she doesn’t have any other symptoms of that allergy.
“It’s almost like its own little personality, so I hope it stays that way.”
