Re: HELP! 5 year old daughter's hair not growing
I see that you posted this question some time ago, so I hope that you get this reply. My 5 year old daughter' hair is the EXACT same way! It grows unevenly, and is dry, coarse and brittle. I had brought it to her pedi's attention for years, always for my concern to be brushed aside. However, just this past month, she has been diagnosed with acquired hypothyroidism---which is probably why her hair never grew! Her linear growth had dropped down to the 3rd percentile and that prompted a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist. If your daughter's overall growth has slowed down, this may be worth looking in to. I hope I helped.
