Excerpt from the book:

Calcium (Ca)

Calcium levels in hair often move in the opposite direction to body inventory.  High hair calcium suggests calcium loss and wasting. High hair calcium will occasionally be due to very elevated serum calcium, parathyroid problems or excessive vitamin D levels but these are uncommon (serum calcium is part of most standard “chem panel” blood tests).  Low hair calcium may suggest deficiency or may indicate low intake with adequate body levels.  Diets which do not contain dairy products are typically much lower in calcium than the average American diet.

Thus the apparently paradoxical suggestion is made by people who know how to use hair tests that people with elevated hair calcium should consume more calcium.
