alopecia in children

Is your child losing her edges or suffering from thinning hair and bald patches on her scalp? Don’t worry, there are treatments that can help your child regrow her hair.

Causes of Hair Loss in Children

There are a variety of reasons your child may be losing her hair. One of the main causes of hair loss in children under 26 months is tension or traction alopecia from braiding their hair too tightly or binding their hair too tight with rubber bands and other hair accessories.

Medical reasons for hair loss in children include endocrine problems, such as hypothyroidism (under active thyroid function).

Tinea capitis, also known as ringworm of the scalp, looks like round or oval scaly patches on the scalp where the hair has broken off. You might also see black dots on the scalp.

Treatment for Tinea capitis includes oral anti-fungal medications, such as griseofulvin.

Ringworm is contagious, so you should disinfect anything your child touches, such as combs, brushes, hair accessories, etc. Wash pillow cases, sheets and towels in hot water separately from other household laundry.

Alopecia areata is caused by your child’s immune system attacking the scalp and hair follicles. It is characterized by round or oval smooth, shiny patches of skin on the scalp. Smooth, shiny skin means the hair follicle is destroyed. There is no cure for Alopecia areata but treatment can prevent the disease from progressing to Alopecia Totalis — total loss of all the hair on the head. A small percentage of children will also suffer total hair loss on their body. Alopecia areata non-contagious, meaning it can’t be transferred by touch to other children in the family.

Treatment for young children with Alopecia areata includes steroidal creams or ointments on the bald patches to decrease the inflammation. Minoxidil (Rogaine) is used in addition to steroidal creams. Hair growth may return in 8-12 weeks.

Trichotillomania occurs when young children pull, pluck or twist their hair. This is more common among children who suffer from stress, anxiety, and mental or emotional problems. Trichotillomania can be triggered by a stressful event in a child’s life, such as parents divorcing or having both parents who are narcissists who suffer from mental or emotional problems.

Treatment for Trichotillomania includes counseling or antidepressants.

Tellogen Effluvium is also caused by sudden stress that interrupts the normal growth cycle of hair and the hair enters prematurely into the resting phase (tellogen phase). 6-8 weeks later, the hair sheds excessively, leaving the young sufferer with thinning or balding hair.

There is no treatment for Tellogen Effluvium. Hair growth may resume normally after the stressful event is over.

Hair loss in children can also be caused by nutritional deficiencies. Some parents are too busy with their own careers to monitor their child’s food intake. As a result, their children subsist mainly on a diet of sodas, fast food, sugary snacks and other sweet delights that are lacking in hair vitamins, such as Biotin, B Complex vitamins and Zinc.

If you believe your child suffers from hair loss or thinning hair, do not attempt to treat the problem yourself with home remedies. Take the child to a licensed dermatologist who can diagnose the problem and suggest a treatment plan.

    North’s hairline would be fine if Kim and Kanye just let the hair be free. But North would look too black if they did.

  • Chitsngiggles

  • Ang

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Posting from a computer is slowing me down. This is probably my last comment from a computer lol.

  • Queen Negus

    My beautician put relaxer in her hair and went swimming. I saw her edges were gone. A few months later they reappeared. I said what did you use. She turned me on to ION. They don’t sell it at black beauty stores in my town just white ones like Sally’s! Y’all will have to research where they sell it in your town.

  • Jusstlookn2

    we talking about baby edges already. BBL maybe

  • Chitsngiggles

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Hi Nanna :waves:
    I see several ION products on Amazon… which one is it please? I still have my edges but the weather’s about to change and my hair gets dry and weakened. Thanks!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

  • Chitsngiggles

    Don’t do it…Reconsider….

  • Ang

    Funny thing is I have been reading her blog for YEARS…I knew the hate was so real but this is too much…she can delete me that’s fine but that’s confirmation for me. What celeb was that who posted her pic and they dragged her around hell?

  • Bootcampgirl

    Mehh, this ain’t the first time she done talked about a baby’s head though…If you’ve been around for YEARS you should already know the deal…

  • Sexy CJ

    North West is a cute lil’ girl…………..

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Phone posting where it’s at ?

  • Torae

    Nori hair stays slicked up in that ponytail. ..which is not good…looks like she has very fine hair and wearing your hair in that one style all the time will thin her edges…I wonder why they don’t let her fro it out?

  • Chitsngiggles

    Will Smith got a new movie coming out about football and brain injuries….interesting….

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Hey Sugar(baker)! :hugs: Girl I had a spurt of busy-ness all of a sudden! a lil work travel for the job… my mom’s b-day, house guests, etc. :phew: a bish was tie-redt! (And I’m still not in love w/this DAQUAN, so I really wasn’t even thinkin bout checkin in like I used to in the ‘old’ garden, but I apologize to the 3 of yall who actually misseded me, lol!) :hugs:

  • heywhatsupp

    As someone who just graduated cosmetology school this sounds realll crazy. I wonder what she was really doing to her hair. But ION is a Sally’s brand. So you can only get it at Sally’s, thats why it isnt sold anywhere else.

  • MookieFly

    Don’t pick on lil Nori. She still an adorable lil bugger even with less than perfect edges. Heck, Rihanna doesn’t have any and has to spray paint hers in but people still lub her.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Why Harley? always post on my PC. It is toooo much
    when the comments get deep I “X” out.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I saw the trailer on IG…it looks like it’s going to be good.

  • Chitsngiggles

    Meanwhile her edges probably flakey from all that Pump it Up….

  • MissHarlem

    She will look too ethnic if she do ?

  • Torae

    Is it a new thing for people with bald edges to wear spray on edges? I noticed this on 3 different people last week…

  • Queen Negus

    Yes and no. She can whip some hair and her hair is long. I do my own relaxers but I go to her for cuts and styles. She is also family that has 2 kids by my cousin.

  • Ang

    Yup have been but as everyone does, they speak when they want…Kiddos off limits for me…

  • Angela

    First it was all about Blue’s hair not being done and looking like a barefoot slave. Now it’s about North’s edges going south for the winter. SMH. Please leave the babies alone.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    don’t do this tuhday, please… leave Blue outta this….

  • Queen Negus

    She said she had forgot she had a relaxer when she went swimming.

  • Chitsngiggles

    Controversial if nothing else. I love this time of year. Its when the good movies come out in time for the Oscars. I wonder what else good is coming out.

    Netflix has a great series called Narcos. This first season is about Pablo Escobar. I’ve been binging on it since I left work Saturday.

  • Queen Negus

    OK thanks but it works.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    It feels so busy. I feel like I’m chasing comments on the PC?.

  • Chitsngiggles

    Ask Lebron and Carlos Boozer….they know.

  • Bootcampgirl

    oookkkkk…j/k

  • Sexy CJ

    What is that sitting next to T.I.?…………

  • Queen Negus

    I think it’s the Damage and repair buy try All to see what works for you!!

  • Chitsngiggles

    Its pretty safe to go there now. Anthony Bourdain went a few years ago. The tourism scene has really picked up. U can tour Escabar’s ranch and meet his brother on a tour. I was looking into going to Panama for my 35th. Columbia ain’t that far from there.

  • Bootcampgirl

    That reminds me, I need to finish that. I hope they don’t take forever with the OITNB…I don’t know that the storyline could be but I’d watch…

  • Buttercup

    If you believe your child suffers from hair loss or thinning hair, do not attempt to treat the problem yourself with home remedies.

    Cause my oldest daughter was so damn bald headed as a baby. Didn’t really start growing hair until after she turned 1. Its still not very long, but its a nice texture, so I won’t complain. The youngest one has hair like wool and its long. She hates for me to come it. Washing and combing her hair is like going to war.

    Folks without kids should refrain from speaking on other folks kids. They DON’T know their struggles.

    Eczema can also cause hair loss in kids. My daughter suffers from it and we have to keep her scalp moist, especially during the winter season. If we don’t her hair will fall out in patches.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Tinea capitis, also known as ringworm of the scalp, looks like round or oval scaly patches on the scalp where the hair has broken off. You might also see black dots on the scalp.

  • aRoth

    Hey there! LOL

  • Torae

    Sandra is right tho. Everyone was going in on Blu Ivy natural hair and now no one wants to mention Nori’s “missing” edges lol…I see how that works lmao

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Fay is not on here like she used to be but most of us use her products. Google Whipfinity (land of pure) it should come up. The peppermint is the best if she still has it.

  • let the truth be known

    Great post Sandra.A lot of females/parents really need to read this.

  • aRoth

    New post

  • Chitsngiggles

    Blue Ivy’s hair was a threat to white people for some odd reason….

  • Trini

    Thanks

  • mzwhang90210

    I like the Candy Cane.
    Oh and hey bew.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    My issue was people confusing natural for uncombed. Natural means free of chemicals , you still have to comb it. Can’t just get up and go because you’re natural. Nori’s edges are fading though :(

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    miss Tina said fugg them folks. I will not have my granbaby round here edgeless

    Is it alopecia or the fact that these chics are doing to much to these kid hair….extension braids. All the dang rubber bands a baretteS, gel instead of grease…just way to much

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Bleach and bleach baths. That post was epic!

  • Bootcampgirl

    Psshhh, tell that beautician that, with the no edges…LMAO

  • Saywhatnow?

    You have to walk around with security becauseā€¦using this picture this baby,whose hair has just begin to grow. Stand down Sandra.

  • BlancheD

    Thanks for this my edges are on the struggle bus after bleaching my hair and winter will be here before you know it

  • Full Monty

    Did we wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning!

  • BlancheD

    Edges just pulling…looks like it hurts when they swing their hair

  • kgirl33

    I seen that babies hair out once. She always keep it pulled up in a bun. She needs to let her scalp breathe.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    rofl!

  • RoniV

    Yes, Blu does have some thick, strong, beautiful hair. Love that Bey ignored the nasty comments and left it natural.

  • Bayou Classic

    Is that North West in that photo? ???

  • RoniV

    Sadly the only complaints I saw were from our own people.

  • TheRealLee

    Isn’t she an RN and thus has credulity on the subject matter? Just wondering. But the real story here is that this child’s hair loss is deliberately induced by a mother who cannot stand her daughters’ natural curls. This kid will have issues growing up. I can see the relaxers starting soon. And of course, the father is oblivious to life around him.

  • RoniV

    The fathers not oblivious, he wanted a baby by a non black woman and will let her hoe mama do what she wants. He controls so much in their life, if he wanted that baby’s hair left curly it would happen.

  • Isaac Coleman

    My son had alopecia..thanks for acknowledging this issue

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I know they put her ponytails too damn tight. That’s why Compass’ always looking pissed.. Her head probably hurts..

  • TheRealLee

    I meant he is oblivious to doing the right thing. This ignorant female is raising a black child who will know nothing about being black because the mother will iron, squeeze, bleach it out of her. Her fool for a father will have his daughter grow up denying and disrespecting her black heritage and him by default. So yes, he is on another dimension and has zero self awareness, and you can’t any more oblivious than that.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    This made me laugh so.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    In high school I put raw eggs and mayo for protein and moisture. Didn’t know you weren’t suppose to heat that up. Scrambled eggs anyone? Try getting that out of a long kinky natural.

  • starbright9449

    I don’t get why some parents and people feel like a toddler’s hair should be styled and laid ‘to the gods’. Why should a two year old have to deal with her hair being styled too tightly to cause tensions and stress on her follicles and by the time she’s three she has no edges? I like the fact that Beyonce didn’t feel the need to do that with Blue altho fools made a petition and complained about it non-stop. Natural hair can be detangled, combed and brushed and still look like it hasn’t been. It’s just the way some peoples hair is. Blue now has a long, thick head of hair and her EDGES. I already told my sister I’ll be damned if she texturizes my niece’s hair, my niece is one! I’ll hurt a bish first lol.

  • starbright9449

    I’m not one to talk about babies but I’m so disgusted that people are up in arms because @realsandrarose:disqus used North’s pic. Everyone keeps bi*ching about the fact that she used North’s pic but would drag Blue and talk about her hair in a sec. Grown a$$ folks were talking about Blue’s hair since she was like two, who talks about a two yr old so negatively!? People made tasteless memes and dragged Blue and her parents, Blue’s a freaking child! But when it comes to Sandra using a pic of MIXED, LIGHTSKINNED and SILKY haired North, everyone wants to cut her head off! A lot of you have serious issues! By the way, North has always had thin hair but her edges were never so thin/scarce! I’m not trying to talk about North negatively but it’s a fact. Look at the younger pics of her and pics now. Y’all need to get y’all sh*t together!

  • Bede Robinson

    its one thing to talk about adults, but when you start in on the children, you have crossed the line. My dear Sandra, you need to find yourself another part time job, because you obviously have some hate issues with people of color. Tell me, the hair that you are currently wearing, is it really yours. I will repent for making that comment, but if you are going to write a blog, why not use some positive comments. Sooner or later, people will start to ignore your blog. What ever has you so bitter, you really need to get rid of it for your own sake.

  • Bede Robinson

    One more thing, the baby’s hairline has been like that since God created her. You spend to much time with facts about things that are unrelated to your stories.

  • IhateSR

    Sandrarose thinks she knows everything. She is soooo wack!! And the sad thing is you people listen to her…SMH

  • ???

    Boom! ???

    Says the old lady always going in on the youngsters…petty Bish… She’s just mad she looks like that

    I guess as a child i hadTrichotillomania because whenever I sucked my finger i would play in my hair by twisting and fingering and tugging and rubbing on it. My mom said as a baby i pulled an entire braid off my hair. My mom me and my sisters have always had a lot of hair. But by the time i was in 3rd grade i had it cut off twice and had a jheri curl to make my hand slide through. And i cut it again in 2009 and 2012. Thank God it grows fast so nobody would ever know. To this day at 28 years old i still do the same.thing. whenever i suck my finger i twist ny hair. Im not stressed, not going through anything tramatic in life. I was sucking my finger in my ultrasound pic. The doctor says its the nervous system that causes me to do it. When i was 16 i got a device put in my mouth by the dentist and i didnt suck my finger or pull my hair for 4 years. I got pregnant at 20 and the sucking came back. Now i wear braids and weave and that keeps my from pulling my hair because i cant feel anything

    Babies lose their hair around this age because it is so soft, it easily rubs off.
    But it grows back lovely given the mom doesnt start putting the baby’s hair in tight ponytails. Sandra i would like to see how your hair looked at her age

  • choco late

    You was born crazy. Damn
