This super-cute baby from Japan now has thousands of fans all over the world thanks to her epic head of hair

She may only be six months old, but so far little baby Chanco has grown more hair than some people can manage in a lifetime.

In fact, so invested are her family in their little one’s incredible mane that they’ve even set up a special Instagram account, @babychanco, which they describe as her “hair diary”.

Chanco’s Instagram account has so far accumulated nearly 120,000 followers, which certainly came as a shock to her mother, Mami. “We are just so, so surprised. But there is no denying that she has a lot of hair, and this is pretty unique to see.”

“When she was born, she came out with a LOT of hair,” she adds. “We just wanted to document it since we thought it [would] be fun.”

Alongside plenty of “#hairgoals” comments, the response Chanco has been getting on Instagram has been nothing short of phenomenal.

One Instagram user commented, “OH MY GOSH! I cant believe how much hair this child has! I LOVE IT!”, while another asked “Can I have her as my baby?!”

“Definitely takes some maintenance,” added one person. “She looks like a little doll!”

“This baby is too sweet, I just want to hug her!! Between that hair and her tiny, delicate features, I can see modelling in her future! Love it!!” said another.

Many are also in disbelief that a baby so little can have quite so much hair. “How is this baby 6 months old!?” asked one Instagram user, while another said: “Imagine her on a trampoline!”

Ultimately, the family are just so delighted to be making others happy. “We hope people can enjoy seeing both her and her hair grow,” said her mum, Mami.
