Hairmax

editor's choice best hair loss treatment The Hairmax laser comb is an FDA approved device that is supposed to help you grow your hair back. Yes, it is a laser comb. The Hairmax laser comb uses low level laser therapy to help grow back your hair on all parts of your head – front, sides, back. About 45% of users see positive results in approximately eight weeks.  

The laser comb provides energy and stimulates hair roots through light, which provides nourishment to the cells and increases blood flow and circulation in the scalp. Depending on what model you use, the Hairmax laser comb has either 5 or 9 individual lasers.

How to use Hairmax 

You are required to use the Hairmax laser comb three times per week for approximately 15 minutes a session. The producers of Hairmax suggest you use their “glide” technique starting at the front of your scalp. You place the teeth of the comb down and glide it back a half inch each time the beeper sounds.

It is also recommended that you continue to use the Hairmax laser comb for as long as you want to keep your hair – which is for a life time. So be prepared to incorporate this therapy into your routine for the rest of your life.

Buying Hairmax

There are a lot of questions regarding this product. If it really did nourish the scalp similar to the process of photosynthesis (the producers comparison) then wouldn't it work on everyone?

Aside from pondering that question, you will also need to contemplate whether you are prepared to spend around $550 for the premium Hairmax product. That is obviously a large sum of money but if people are desperate enough they will spend, and I think the Hairmax people understand that.

Do your research on this product. Ask questions; find other people who have used it and speak with them about it. It's in your best interest.

Alternatives

If you need to kick your hair loss treatment up a notch, consider Provillus, a two step process for hair loss treatment. Provillus's topical product contains prescription strength quantities of the DHT blocker Minoxidil. Step two is Provillus's dietary supplement specifically formulated with saw palmetto to block production of DHT, as well as other herbs that nourish the scalp and hair follicles.
