you can try mixing castor oil in coconut oil, in 1:2 proportion, apply this twice a week, leave on hair for 2-3 days and wash out.... this had really worked out for my daughter.

When my daughter was 1 - 1. 5 yrs, she also had thin hair .... at that time her pediatrician suggested to wait till she is 2. 5 yrs ... And now she is 4 with lovely long hair ... I guess its good to wait for some more time... and keep om giving her balanced diet.

At the same time, vitamin A deficiency can also cause thin hair. Most likely, her hair growth will improve with age. Oiling may not necessarily improve hair growth if a nutritional deficiency or genetics is causing the problem. I would suggest consult your pediatrician, they may prescribe a vitamin supplement - Vitamin E/A/B complex. Please also read the following parent talk on the same issue where fellow parents have suggested a protein rich diet and other solutions to the problem. take care.

Hi Deepti, there can be several causes for this - perhaps your daughter takes after someone in the family in terms of hair growth and texture / a nutritional deficiency / mother's milk is extremely rich in vitamin A and excess of vitamin A can cause hair loss / a bacterial infection that could be affecting the hair growth, however an infection will usually have other symptoms as well - itching, lesions, scaling on the scalp.
