Thanks for the query.
You can ask her to try these few things-
1] Do not comb vigorously.
2] Treat any Dandruff, Head Lice etc.
3] Do not use strong shampoos.
4] If she is agreeable ask her to cut the hair short for a few months.
5] If she is on any medications like hormones, etc they could be causing this trouble.
6] Regular oiling with coconut oil may help.
Take care.
