I want to re-grow my hair naturally. I’m not totally bald. I have noticeably thin hair in my temples and crown in that awful pattern . I think it’s reasonable to see notable results from natural hair treatments and devices. Since that is my perspective, and natural treatments being so appealing, a device like the HairMax Laser Comb was especially intriguing. In my first search, the HairMax appeared as a winner among other laser products on the market. However, in hindsight, that may be a result of their huge advertising machine. In case you think there’s going to be a cheery conclusion and this is just another promotional statement in favor of the HairMax, it is not.
The Laser Comb initially drew my eye while searching for alternative hair growth product. I found other low level laser products: The Erchonia THL-1, Nutreve 1700, Spencer Forrest X5, Sunetics Laser Brush, Hair Rejuvenator Laser Comb 7, etc. but none of them asserted the powerful claims that they had been approved by the FDA to treat thinning hair. When I saw ‘FDA Approved,’ that made me think the HairMax was able to show, through convincing evidence, that it can effectively re-grow in men suffering from hair loss. Based on the power of the alleged data driven promise to treat thinning hair, combined by my hope for a device to work, I paid about $500 to buy the HairMax Laser Comb. I know, that’s a tremendous investment; however, if the Laser Comb was able to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss, as it claims, I’d pay $500 each year no question.
I purchased the Hairmax and used it as directed: three uses each week for 20 minutes each time. I reviewed my hair changes with photos. I anticipated that my results would be similar to the results HairMax shows on their website illustrating a man’s head at point A then twelve weeks later the same head with denser hair. I wanted to witness noticeable gains, so I kept my hair cut short. After two months, I noticed no results. Curious, I started searching for verifiable consumer feedback about the HairMax. The reviews were difficult to verify. Some men claimed they had success, yet others bad mouthed the HairMax as a worthless piece of garbage. In my search, I discovered something else – the report from the FDA regarding LLLT, sent to HairMax.
If you are considering the HairMax, don’t take my experience, you should read the FDA report yourself. It is my belief that, the HairMax uses deceptive messaging strategies to persuade consumers, who just want to re-grow hair, that the device has the seal of approval from the FDA to prevent hair loss. The reality is that the HairMax is approved to be advertised as a product intended to grow hair. However, the FDA gave this authorization because the HairMax is considered just like a device sold in the 1970’s with a similar goal. As such, the HairMax did not produce research that the FDA reviewed and passed based on the accuracy of the scholarship. Rather, the HairMax is sanctioned as a product that can be promoted to treat thinning hair but any other device on the internet could apply for the same ‘approval’ and the FDA would undoubtedly grant the same rights.
Having said all this, I believe that Low Level Laser Therapy has the ability to stimulate hair growth. My investigation makes me believe that there is an optimum amount of energy needed for cellular regeneration. Based on some laser advocates the needed amount is three to six joules per/ square centimeter. This amount of energy can’t be achieved during a 20 minute session of combing with the HairMax. This amount of energy could only be realized with current technology by having the lasers focused on a specific space for 20 min. Therefore a product that provides more coverage for a sustained duration has the capacity to stimulate hair re-growth. The HairMax Laser Comb doesn’t have the capacity to do that, which means its capacity to stimulate hair growth is restricted.
