Daughters Hair


My 3 and a half year old has extremly fine hair (like me but 10 X worse) everyone tells me to shave it etc but old wives tale I know. Is there a supplement or some REAL help that I can do for her. She is desperate for a full head of hair and I hope she does but grade 1. She hasn''t really had a hair cut and it is still only just touching her ears but is terribly fine and endy.

Thanks Vanessa

This can cause concern for little girls.Your daughter appears to have inherited this tendency to have very fine hair. There is very little practical advice but it is worthwhile taking a zinc supplement such as Zinplex syrup every day. Coconut oil may also be helpful if rubbed into her scalp at night.Always use a very mild shampoo such as the new 'Pure Shampoo' you will find at your pharmacy.
