It is possible she has a fungal infection which can cause such a problem. Avoid sun exposure on the head. She needs to have good nutrition by plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, Drink plenty of water. Better for her to get examined by Dermatologist who will examine and give good treatment for this problem.
