I’m a an African American female in my late 50’s. I wear a lock hairstyle, having started to grow locks in 2002. While I’ve always had fine hair, I noticed that my hair did change when I was pregnant in my 30’s. I’ve lost quite a bit of hair at the top center of my head and consequently wear my hair up daily – to cover the thin bald areas in my scalp. The information on your site is truly encouraging. At one point I thought I’d have to cut and shave my hair down but was afraid to because I felt it would not grow back. I will purchase your ebook when its affordable. I want to ask if your research 100% extends to women as much as it does men. I would imagine so as hair loss is hair loss. I do not want to cut my hair and look forward to seeing results after about 6 months of following the routines suggested in your ebook. However, I am unable to wash my hair daily. Would you suggest a weekly shampoo? I’m excited, thanks. Following up to my previous message, I failed to mention that I experience quite a bit of itching at the top of my scalp where I have suffered a lot of hair loss. What could possibly be the cause of the itching? The itching is only in the areas of the extreme hair loss. Please advise. Thanks.
