Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per your query your sister have retarded hair growth. I can very well understand your concern for your sister.

Thre are certain conditions of the har where we find early breakage of hair. I think till now you were not guided about your sister's condition. Hair problems are definitely the problems which take a long time of months before it can be sorted out. You need to have a good follow up of at least 6 months before you think of changing any doctor.

Even then for the best of the remedy you make her follow a good dietary plan in your daily schedule. You should know that our hair are basically made up of proteins and supported by certain simple biochemical known as minerals and vitamins. So every of the food item which contains good amount of proteins with vitamins and minerals are best for maintenance and growth of good hair.
So let her eat a lot of fruits, green vegetables, sprouts and milk products in your diet.
Hope this information helps you. If you have any further queries I will be happy to help.
"Wish you good health"

dear ssangam, i sympathise to your sister. Just because she i not find a solution u cannot blame the entire doctor community. U have not mentioned ur sister's age. I guess it may be a genetic problem of the hair shaft. U nee to consult a qualified dermatologist. Now a days we find many so called doctors, calling themselves trichologists without having sufficient knowledge of the subject. U nee to visit a alopathic doctor who has mastered the subject of dermatology.
