My daughter is 11 years old. We recently noticed a gray patch of hair along with a pink spot on her scalp. What caused this? She had braids this summer and it was not there. Please help because shse is being teased at school now.
Sometimes it is normal to have patches of hair that is different in color. I doubt it had anything with having braids. You may want to have your daughter seen by a dermatologist if you are noticing something different on her scalp. There may be a medical condition that may be causing the change in her scalp and hair pigmentation (such as ringworm, which is common in children).
