Thin Hair / Hair Loss

My 3 year old has really thin, dry hair. She twirls it as she's going to sleep so by morning I'm wrestling with a huge knot. Whilst untangling this knot, small clumps of hair seem to just fall out. My first step was to get her hair cut into a short bob style but she still managed to twirl. My next step was to condition her hair every other night but that doesn't seem to be working. I've just been researching what vitamins you need for healthy hair which we seem to have well covered in a balanced diet. Anyone experience anything similar or have any advice? Thanks

You could also try to visit skin specialist, they may help you determine the cause of hair loss.

Have you talked to her doctor? There are a few health conditions that cause hair to fall out (hypothyroidism is one such). It wouldn't hurt to make sure that it isn't something treatable.
