I have dreadlocks and on the top of my hair is thinning out, help?

For matted hair with dreadlocks, use a clarifying shampoo to untangle the hair. Since such products spread the hair cuticles, be extremely gentle in combing the hair afterwards to avoid breaking. It would be best to follow the clarifying shampoo with an acidic shampoo before combing it. If the dreadlocks are in the second stage when the individual hairs begin to bond, then the only way to untangle the hair is to cut it completely and let it re-grow naturally. It is recommended to consult a specialist and go to a salon for all treatments related to untangling dreadlocks.

For thinning hair, use a gentle shampoo enriched with proteins daily to keep your hair oil-free and bouncing healthily. Avoid conditioning your hair since this actually makes your hair limp and look even thinner than normal. Opt instead for a natural conditioner, made by mixing 1 tbsp white vinegar in a pint of water. You can also crack an egg over your hair and massage it into your scalp for around 5 minutes before shampooing your hair. The proteins in the egg nourish the hair encouraging growth and leaving the hair healthier and shiny. Other traditional remedies for thinning hair include massaging your hair with coconut oil and Aloe Vera gel. You can also apply olive oil, honey and 1 tsp cinnamon powder 15 minutes before you shampoo your hair to encourage hair growth.
