My 9 year old daughter's hair is falling off a!

My daughter has think black beautiful hair, but lately its falling off and breaking when she washes her hair, and brushes it. Is there any good shampoo / conditioner i can buy for her, and also could it be her diet? Thank you ladies!

  • Try using a really good conditioner. Maybe "cholesterol" (yes, that's what it's called) or "main and tail" to help de-tangle her hair and help eliminate some of the breakage when she combs through it. They sell both in most drug stores, walmart or target.

  • What kind of shampoo/conditioner is she currently using?

    Her diet could be the cause but I'm not a doctor. Call her doctor.

  • Diet has a lot to do with hair falling out. Hopefully it isn't a medical problem. Check with your pediatrician.

  • I agree check with your Dr , it is probably nothing but could be a sign of something.

  • get her a dermatologist. she might have alopecia. but if it's not that bad it could be normal or harsh chemicals. i wouldn't blame it on shampoo or conditioner.
