About six months ago my five y/o daughter's hair became very dry and brittle. Within one week, most of her hair fell out. I took her to her doctor who sent me to a lab for blood work, which did not show any illness. The only thing that was noticed was that her iron level was a little low. She did not have any skin irritation to her scalp (no ring worms, alepecia or dandruff), so the doctor prescribed daily vitamins. Her hair is on the verge of growing back, but now it is a completely different texture than before. Being an ethnic child, hair used to be very curly and thick. Now, my daughter's hair (the parts that is growing in) is baby fine and very soft. It has a natural softness as if she was biracial. I've researched this phenominon for months and can not find any answers. Aside from this, my daughter is very healthy and has no allergies (no medication). Can someone please help bring closure to my issue? I am running out of diagnosises....thanks
