My 11 year old daughter is loosing hair like crazy.  She'll be 12 in July.  I've tried increasing her fatty acids and B vitamins.  It didn't do a thing.  I found that taking Female Balance fixed it for me.  I was almost considering giving some to her but wasn't sure if she was old enough.  She's not yet started her cycle and didn't want to force that in to happening before her time.  
I thought about protein but she gets plenty of that.  She eats only meat that we've raised ourselves and eats till she's full.  So, I'm not sure what to do.  Any suggestions?

Female Balance, BTW, is a NOW product containing yam and a few other things.  Anyone can google it and find the exact ingredients.

Is she stressed? My friend starting losing lots of hair as an older teenager and she was going through a very stressful time. It was diagnosed as stress related and returned when she learned to manage it.

I hope you find a solution, although my gut would tell me "no" concerning the Female Balance.

It could be  just a phase of the hair growth cycle and will sort out on its own without any intervention. Or she might be having adolescent hormone issues or she might need to have her thyroid hormones tested.

My 8 y.o. does the same thing every so often.  She freaks out.  I just brush it well and pull it back in a braid so she doesn't notice it as much.  It quits in a day or two.  I don't know if it's stress-related or not.

I knew someone in high school who got excess calcium from drinking too much milk, and literally all of his hair fell out.  So vitamins/minerals can be a cause.

When my daughter was about that age, she got into the habit of pulling out one strand at a time, while she was just sitting around talking with friends, until one of them pointed to her floor and showed her what she put there in the last hour.  My daughter was shocked, and tried to keep her hands on something else, I tried teaching her to crochet, but she was left handed, and I was right, so I had to stand behind her to teach her.  She completed one project, but that was enough, to end this habit.  It was a secret, she held inside took 30 years, before it came out.

What's her blood type? I'm guessing, from reading your sig line, that she's an O? Is that correct?

What's her overall diet like? Is she compliant away from home?

Is she showing any other signs of "adult female hormones" such as acne, body hair (though she may not share this information with you) moodiness that varies over the course of the month, or breast growth? Age 11 is definitely a time when SOME girls are starting puberty, though not all of them.

I'd be wary of giving hormone-affecting herbs to an adolescent. If you do give her any herbs to balance out her hormones, I wouldn't do it with an OTC herbal mixture like you took. I'd want a pediatrician or herbalist to evaluate her and figure out exactly what it is her body needs right now, and then give her one or two carefully selected herbs, in carefully selected doses- possibly much less than an adult would need, and if you're using more than one, possibly in different proportions to one another than "normally used." A half-dose of "fem balance" may or may not be appropriate.

I lost a lot of hair when I was in a highly stressed relationship. I didn't realize it at the time, but my body told me otherwise. I could literally pull clumps of strands of hair out of my head while finger brushing. I was in my late thirties/early forties, though.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I remember at that age experiencing a lot of angst.  Stress, anxiety, self-doubt, confusion, uncertainties.  

I have noticed that at times in my life now when I'm under the most stress, my hair loss definitely increases and then slows down when I'm feeling more at ease.

This happened to my granddaughter's friend, although she was 14 at the time....Her hair loss
was obvious along her forehead as if her hairline was creeping back a little at a time. Doctor diagnosed this child with an auto-immune issue so I would possibly check into gluten intolerance because it turned out this young girl's gut triggered an auto immune response in hair follicles from eating gluten grains.  Not saying this is the case, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Low iron, stress, and autoimmune can cause these things. How is her weight? Stable? If she is under I would be concerned about intestinal issues. You can have iron loss through intestinal issues too.

Hormone balance is possible too. Does she eat too many carbohydrates? Blood sugar stable?

Has her thyroid been checked.  Many kids have low thyroid issues.  Low thyroid hormones can be a cause of hair falling out.

She's very complaint to the diet.  All of the kids are and away from home...?  That doesn't happen often.  We're farmers and homebodies.  

I think we've figured out what it is.  The water.  Our well water here in the summer time causes problems with my husband, my oldest daughter and my youngest daughter.  For whatever reason as we begin to use more water for watering the gardens and animals it begins to take on a nasty flavor.  
We remembered that last summer her hair became so dry and tangled.  You could comb it and within 5 minutes you wouldn't be able to run the comb back through.  
We switched water and within two days her hair quite falling out.

Thanks for all the comments.
