How can you stop hair loss if you have locks (or dreadlocks)?

How can you stop hair loss if you have locks (or dreadlocks)?

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.

  1. i am a 25 years old east african male and i have had dreadlocks for the last 3 years and didn’t really taken care of it. now I’m experiencing a hair loss on top of my frontal hair. my question is would my hair grow back if i cut my dreadlocks?

    1. Hi Gigi,

      Cutting the dreadlocks off will not cause the hair to grow back. However it would make it possible to use hair regrowth methods, such as those described in my eBook.

      Stopping hair loss is a very difficult thing — it can take a lot of time, effort, patience and the right knowledge. If you want to save your hair my advice would be to start a hair regrowth regime now.

      All the best,


  2. Hello,

    I have suffered with a loss of hair around my temple area for quite a number of years now, I just lived with it. From what I understand these bald patches in the temple area will not produce hair again because the follicles are damaged. When I was young I did relax (perm) my hair although I did not do this on a regular basis…Do you think that this could have caused the damage (hair loss) in the temple area? I am natural now and have been again for a number of years and it seems as if the loss of hair in my temple area has got slightly worse.

    The information that you have provided is encouraging and what I would like to know before purchasing your book is….Is it possible to reactivate my hair in the areas i’ve had loss especially as it’s been that way for years?

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      It’s unlikely that relaxing your hair occasionally will have caused the hair loss you describe. Hair loss caused by stressful styling only occurs with regular prolonged use.

      It’s more likely that this hair loss is actually caused by ‘DHT‘. The best thing you can possibly do is use my 2 minute a day hair regrowth technique, called The Alternation Method, to reactivate dormant hair follicles.

      The temple areas are the hardest part in which to regrow hair but it is possible. You really need to increase circulation, feed the dormant follicles (which are still there but are see-through, tiny and hardly visible) and protect them from DHT, every single day, religeously.

      If you stick with the 2 minutes a day technique, every single day, you’ll start to see the tiny see-through ‘vellus’ hairs start to increase in size, return to their normal colour and start growing again.

      Make sure you check out the 2 minute technique.
