Should I be concerned that my daughters hair is thinning?

Should I be worried… my little girl was born with a full head of hair… I recently realized while I was combing her it gets thinner… I assumed she’s changing hair as I hear my parents say, but this much hair at the same time… shes not itching, no flakes no nothing just baldness… what do you think of it? Taking her to see a doc end of the week…

Wait what the doctor has to say. We can all guess and drive you crazy but you need medical advice.

My daughter was born with a full crop of dark hair. By 4 months it had all bar about 20 strands fallen out. Shes now 12 months and has a massive amount of lighter colored hair. Its normal. Although I’m not sure of her age im presuming shes a baby

My kids did this when they were babies. All born with a head full and it got thin, my son lost his hair completely on the back of his head. When their hair grew back it was lighter

My sister was born with a head full of dark hair and when she was 3mo her hair fell out and turned blonde

I saw a post that claims Johnson & Johnson all-in-one baby wash causes some children’s hair to fall out. I have no evidence to support or disprove the post.

Following. I’m curious what the doctor says.

I was born with a head full of black hair. I lost almost all my hair all I had was a patch at the top. It then came in blonde. Check with Dr. But it could be absolutely normal too depending on age

I always thought it was a natural thing. :woman_shrugging: i notticed it on my kids too, where they were getting bald spots in the back. It always grew back tho

Is this a new born or a 6yr old? A new born losing their full head of hair after a few months happens all the time. If this a 6yr old see a pediatrician.

Are we talking about an infant? If so- there likely isn’t cause for concern. Most babies who were born with a lot of hair will lose some- possibly all- of their hair in the first few months of life.
When you should be concerned is if by 12 months, your baby isn’t growing the hair back. Then you would need to seek the advice of a paediatric specialist.

In the meantime, be sure to use a gentle and mild baby shampoo. Do NOT wash your baby’s hair more than 2-3 times a week. You don’t want to dry out their delicate scalp. NEVER scrub…lather gently and rinse well.

new born baby’s almost always lose their hair.

My son went through this when he was about 4-6 months old. He now has a head full of hair. If it continues to concern you i would bring it up to the baby’s doctor and maybe they can tell you and give you peace of mind that everything is all right

My daughter did as well she was born with really dark brown hair then few months went by an she didnt have as much hair an now shes got long blonde hair lol it happens

How old? Both my little girls “lost their baby hair” before it came in more full.

If she is a newborn/infant she will lose her hair and new hair will grow. Its normal for this to happen.

When I was 2 I lost all my hair. It all came back but was stronger and healthier

Babys before 2 can have hair loss… my last daughter had thick long dark hair… it all fell out and it’s now my color hair… its normal

Is she about 2-3 mos old? I remember my kids hair thinning or falling out around then. New hair will come back. If she’s older like school age I’d be concerned.

It’s completely normal. Happened with my daughter. She was born with a head full of black hair, and then it thinned out and turned blonde. Nothing to be concerned about.

I was born with a head full of jet black hair. It fell out and I was a bald little girl up until 3 years old. Then I got a full head of thick blonde hair.

A lot of babies lose their hair

My son was born strawberry blond with a decent amount of hair. It all fell out and grew back much darker

It happens to most babies. My first two it was a gradual loss. My third kid very literally went into a bath with a head full of hair, and came back out with none! I panicked lol. He was about 2 months old, and I literally washed his hair off lol.

How old is she? My 4 month old was born with hair but her head is growing so fast her hair can’t keep up.

It’s normal for babies to lose hair after they are born which causes their hair to thin. Sometimes it’s not noticeable and other times they practically go bald.

Alot of babies lose hair, but I suggest switching shampoos and maybe try a chemical free alternative if you’re not using that already.

make sure you have a filter. depends what country your in. water in uae is not so good to me

My little guy lost all of his hair except a little “rat tail”. Same thing happened to me as a baby.

When my daughter was born, she had a full head of hair. I was so excited! Finally a baby with hair. Then it all fell out. :weary:

When sleeping on their back they rub their head against the crib sheets and their baby hair falls out. It’ll grow back

The question is how old is your daughter? In babies it’s totally normal.

Most babies lose hair after their born. Mine came out with a full head of dark brown hair by the time we got out of the NICU she had peach fuzz but had gorilla hair covering her body lol

If she is still a baby it’s the hormone change that happens. This happened to my daughter as well. My aunt ended up massaging her head daily and her hair ended up growing back

Shave her head and it will grow back thicker. I did it with mine and her head is full of bouncy thick curls!

A lot of people shave their babies head to get rid of fine thinning hair and to help promote hair growth

A lady had a post on here not to long ago, warning ppl that her baby was losing his hair too n it was from the baby body wash head-to-toe Johnson&Johnson brand and her baby’s hair grew back when she stopped using the product so maybe it can be from the shampoo??

My eldest was born with dark hair. She lost it all around 6 months and it came in blonde. She now has dark hair again.

It’s normal. My daughter had such beautiful brown hair when she was born. I never thought she would lose it. It started thinning and then I noticed a lot of balding on the sides. Then boom. Her hair started growing back and now it’s a beautiful light blonde.

Nope usually its normal, sometimes can be from sleeping on the same spot too much. My daughter went through it when she was 6-8 months now I have to yank through curls everyday

My son lost his hair also. He looked like a old man who was balding. It is normal. Call your doctor they will talk to you over the phone.

My son lost it all! Smooth as a babies bottom!

My son was also born with a full head of hair as well and it all fell out, grew back in a different color.

Most newborns/infants will loose some if not most of the hair they are born with. My middle and youngest son were both born with full heads of hair and they lost most of.

Most new babies lose their hair and sometimes grows in a different color, curly or straight

I just saw a post about johnson’s baby shampoo making kids lose hair. Something to check into

My darling lost every bit of hair she was born with and stayed bald until almost 2 then grew crazy wild curly hair :slightly_smiling_face:

Her head is growing too. It may seem like less but not actually be less. All my kids had a full head of hair.

My son was born with full head of black hair. At like a month old he was completely bald lol. Pretty normal depending on age

Yes, simply because it is not the norm. I would speak with my child’s physician.

My daughter was born with body hair, that baby fluff falls out.

My daughter was born with hair long enough to braid and 2 weeks later she was almost bald

How old is she? A lot of babies lose the hair they’re born with.

They lose their baby hair like that. But how old is she?

What kind of product do you use to wash her hair and body?

All 3 of my kids had tons of hair at birth, but lost quite a bit in the first couple of months. By the time my 3rd was 4 mo this he looked like Frank Barone! :joy:

Growing up has never come the easier way. It comes with lots of challenges like lost marriages, lost love, financial and job problems and so many more, but still there has always been a solution to every challenges that we face in life. Life has been so difficult for me these past few months and I had given up on myself knowing that I will not find love or true happiness again. Two months ago I found out I was pregnant and I was so happy and excited to have my own baby and I didn’t even call my boyfriend. I just wanted to take the results to him and show him face to face and share the good news together. But when I reached his flat I saw his car parked outside and knew he was home so I went straight to his room. When I knocked, he allowed me to enter because he wasn’t expecting me at the time, but when i opened the door I nearly fainted because I caught him ready handed with another woman in his house. I looked at them and closed the door and ran away, he followed me saying his sorry and the woman is just a friend and nothing else but I knew he was lying and I walked away. I reached home and cried a lot until i told my best friend everything and she told me to fight for my man and not loose him to another woman. She gave me Sir Marere contact +2348109805184 email is: [email protected] com and told me Sir Marere will bring back my boyfriend to me and love only me. So i contacted Sir Marere and told her everything, he made a love and binding prayers for me and in 1 day of the prayers my boyfriend came to me with that woman I saw him with and knelt down and begged for my forgiveness and told the woman that am the love of his life and he doesn’t ever want to see her again. The woman walked away and that evening my man came back with a baked cake and gifts and flowers and asked for my forgiveness again and promised never to hurt me again and I told him that we are having a baby, he cried and smiled with joy and happiness. We are back together and so much in love and waiting for our baby to arrive. Thanks so much Sir Marere your prayers indeed work. You can call or whats-app Sir marere on +2348109805184 Email: [email protected] com incase you are passing through the same situation. Don’t be discouraged by what people may tell you that even don’t know the situation you are going through, all that matters are the results so feel free to contact him.

My second son lost his hair after about a month. I asked the doctor and he told me that it was okay, the body is getting rid of unwanted effects of child birth. His hair grew back stronger and better than before. So just relax and see what happens over the next few weeks.

My son was born with a full head of jet black hair and it pretty much all fell out. He now has super fine light brown hair.

We shave our babies head after a week as per our belief and it also gets rid of unwanted particles on the scalp. Then new hair grows better than before
