My nandenas loose their top leaves but not the bottom leaves.

Is the top part dead? - dry and brittle? If so I would cut it off and let it grow back from the healthy lower part.

Your Nandina needs some rejuvenation. I used to cut out about 1/3rd of the stems down to the ground each year. It lets the other ones grow much better. Cut off anything that is dead until you get to green, living tissue. You can get this one back to growing well and showing off it's pretty berries.
