I just joined this forum -- my daughter is 12 years old and is very healthy. We have been told there her hair is in the telogen phase so is always resting -- she has had one hair cut in her 12 years and that was basically for the experience -- as she told the stylist "it takes me a long time to grow these so please don't cut much". She is often mistaken for a boy so we wear a lot of pink! The dermatologist we saw had has use rogain and we did for awhile but doesn't seem to help. I don't want to give up hope that there is something out there that she can stimulate the growth of the hair -- it's not a hair loss problem (at this point) -- it doesn't grow. When we went to the dermatologist and he examined the hair he said he had never seen anything like this and that her hair (at age about 8 at that point) was virgin hair still....Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?
