  • This happened to my daughter when she was 9. When she was 8, half the hair in her head fell out. We went to the dermatologist, endocrinologist, pediatrician, allergist, you name it. They said it's alopecia (unexplained hair loss, gee thanks). Her thyroid was also off, so we fixed that, and her hair grew back in. Then, her eyelashes fell out, and part of her eye brows. Again, they don't know why. There is no known trigger and no cure. They eventually grow back in, maybe. Take your girl to the doctor and make sure everything is OK and read up on alopecia. It's frustrating, but as they say, Knowledge is Power. GL.
