My 9 year old, almost 10, has very fine, thin hair...seems to me to be breaking a lot too. Thoughts?

It has...it takes FOREVER to grow as well. It just seems too fine...when she pulls it back in a ponytail, you can see her scalp. And her hairline is really far back. It's thinner up front then it was last year, for sure. Enough to worry me!

Has she lost weight or stopped gaining?

No, not at all.
She is an anxious child, and we just had a 6 month stretch of no anxious behaviour...and now she's anxious again. Perhaps the anxiety/stress is causing it. ?
Wondering if I should do blood tests, check her iron levels.

I would go to a doctor and ask about thyroid tests
