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.
Thanks for your emails.
The instructions in my eBook work for both women and men, although some of the instructions are particularly tailored toward men because of hormonal differences between men and women. The eBook explains how to firstly get your scalp and body back into the condition they were in before the hair loss began — by eliminating all the causes of hair loss. Then we use some powerful techniques to intensely feed the hair and reactivate dormant hair follicles.
However you will find some of the advice in my eBook difficult and perhaps even impossible to follow if you are unable to wash your scalp. In the eBook I recommend applying a special custom made formula to the scalp, which feeds the hair. This will not be practical if you cannot wash your scalp in the morning.
The itching you describe could be due to a skin condition such as eczema, which is a very common skin condition, or it could be due to something such as demodex mites, which is less common. It’s difficult to treat these conditions without being able to apply topical treatments to the effected areas and washing the scalp daily. For example shampoo containing zinc can be used to treat dandruff and itchy scalps. And other treatments can be used to remove demodex mites, but they rely on you being able to properly wash your scalp thoroughly after each treatment.
My best advice would be for you to visit a local dermatologist and have your scalp examined under a microscope. However any dermatologist is likely to advise you to wash and treat your scalp. If you’re not happy to do this you’re only other options are to use diet to help feed your hair by increasing your consumption of food for hair growth. You could also try using some of the methods I use to increase blood circulation in the scalp, which help increase the supply of nutrients to the hair, via the bloodstream.
Your priority should be to eliminate the cause of the itching. Once you have achieved this you can start applying techniques to reactivate dormant hair follicles.
