Hair loss is known rare side effect of the medication that your daughter is taking. The hair loss is usually transient and hair growth reappears. There are no shampoo to prevent it. Multivitamin containing zinc may be tried to improve it, however benefit is not certain. Since seizures are well control i would advice to stick to the medication and hope for the best.
good luck.
