A 4-year-old healthy Hispanic girl presented with a 2-year history of a change in hair quality. Her once-straight, dark-brown hair (Figure 1) had become shinier and lighter in color and was dry, coarse, and difficult to brush. Hair conditioners had failed to improve her hair texture. No history of chemical or other trauma to the hair, or family history of hair disorders, was elicited.
