Nidhi, this is what Dr Naveen Kini has to say:

Hair fall to a certain extent is normal in children. It is just that the hair is passing from growth, i.e., anagen phase to resting phase. New hair growth will restart after 2 to 3 months. Visit your pediatrician to make sure the child does not have any vitamin deficiency, or fungal infection. Give the child plenty of fruits and vegetables, and see that the child gets adequate sleep.

Dr Naveen, I hv got all checked, there s no fungal infection or deficiency.. Thats y am confused the reason behind such hair fall. Usually I wash her hair weekly, should I increase the frequency?
