Hello....I can understand your apprehension,.one hair will not cause major problem,ingestion of lot of hair could cause problem like before. Hair is non absorbable structure. one hair may come out in stools. take care next time. If she has any abdominal pain in the next few days, you can consult a pediatrician or surgeon for further evaluation.
