Adorable Baby Girl Inherits Mum, Grandmum, Great Grandmum’s White Hair

 

This is MilliAnna, an 18-month-old baby from Ridgeland, South Carolina, and she has a distinctive white streak in her hair that only adds to her cuteness.
This certainly is a remarkable trait, but what makes it even more notable is that her mother, 23-year-old Brianna Worthy, shares the very same white streak.

What’s even more remarkable is that MilliAnna’s grandmother Jennifer shares the same distinctive streak, as did her mother before her.

The streak is caused by a condition called poliosis, which causes hair follicles to have little or no
melanin, resulting in colorless hair follicles and sometimes patches of surrounding skin.


Worthy told the Daily Mail that she was hoping MilliAnna would inherit the trait, and shared what it was like growing up with it.

“Sometimes it would bother me when I was younger, but I grew to end up really loving it in my hair and was confident that it was my own unique signature look.”
