Studies show that 50% of men by the age of 50 will have undergone signs of hair loss. This can vary from insignificant to notable hair loss and for reasons such as genetics, among others. Although the loss of hair seems to be less severe for girls, it’s still a problem for millions of women across the globe. In fact, some women even end up being bald. Many men and women are not bothered by hair loss, wearing it like a badge which signifies wisdom through time. But, understandably, many are looking for ways to minimize its effect.

About HairMax Bosley – HairMax Laser Band
One of the hair loss solutions doing its rounds on the internet is HairMax, which has established a reputation for showing significant results. In actuality, it did well enough to be given FDA approval.
Their most well-known solution, LaserComb, has served as a blueprint of sorts for similar products. They have been able to sell a high number of products through the years. Among these products, Laserband 82 is probably their flagship device.
The HairMax LaserBand 82 is essentially a device that uses lasers to prevent and even reverse hair loss. Laser therapy does this by combatting hair miniaturization. The company claims that the product uses crescent-shaped lasers to stimulate hair follicles, bringing back optimal hair growth. For results, the recommended treatment program is three times per week, one to two minutes per session.
The founders of the HairMax Laser Comb also say that the product does its magic through photo-biostimulation. This supposedly means that the laser’s energy works to increase hair follicles’ power on a cellular level. Bosley – HairMax Laser Band

Design And Features
The product comes at only 15 ounces, which is surprisingly lighter than it looks.The 82 on the product name is actually because the band has 82 laser producing pins. The removable teeth on both sides of the actual band work just like a comb: it components and move hair so that the laser comes in contact directly with the scalp.
Depending on what fits best with your head, you can remove and replace the teeth which have different sizes. This ensures that users can wear the device comfortably, no matter the head size.
To turn the unit on, you just have to hit the power button on its right side. Pressing the button once will initiate a 30-second treatment while pressing it twice in succession starts the 4-second therapy. Do note that these are the two treatment options available. It’s also nice that the device gently vibrates to tell you that it is time to move the band to another section of the scalp.
Just remember that if you chose the 30-second treatment, then you would need to do one whole movement after it vibrates. But, if you opt for the 4-second therapy, then you would need 6 cycles to complete 1 session.
How Do You Use It?
According to the directions, the first thing you should do is comb your hair for 10-15 minutes prior to each treatment. You should do it from front to back and then side to side, moving your comb in increments of about half an inch every 4 seconds. It also says that the product should be used after shampooing, so your hair is free of any sort of styling products. You can do each session 3 days per week. Yes, it is a little time-consuming. However, the results certainly justify it. Besides, you will eventually get used to it after a few weeks or so.
The product is very easy to use and the instructions are pretty much straightforward. Just remember that the unit has to be charged for about 4 hours prior to your first time using it. But it’s great that you don’t have to configure anything else besides selecting the most appropriate teeth to the comb and adjusting it to fit in your mind the best approach.
It’s A Product For Both Ladies And Gents
Although hair loss is more commonly associated with men, this item is also for women going through a postpartum process. For anybody who doesn’t understand, hair loss is a part of pregnancy for many women. In reality, for some women, it starts as early as 16 months into their pregnancy. But then, some say that they create shinier, healthier hair during their pregnancy, so it’s really a case to case basis. It all depends upon how a woman’s body reacts to hormones, in addition to their genes to some extent. Nevertheless, this product can be used by women and men.
Does It Actually Work?
If you check the box, you’ll see a bit of paper which details how the item should enhance your hair from week 0 to week 12. In my experience, it is pretty close. But of course, it’s expected that it will not be the same for all users. It’s not completely accurate, as others could lag behind a little while others see faster development than just how the description says. To be certain, it is possible to take a photograph of your hair weekly and compare it to the diagram shown in the description. The purpose of this is to see for yourself how your hair grows after every weekly treatment.
Some improvements with your hair can be noticeable following 8 weeks of treatments. With a side by side comparison of the photos that you took, then the difference will be even more obvious. It is worth noting that developments on the scalp can also be seen, which makes sense as the treatment is intended to improve hair growth at the follicle level. Running your hands through your hair will also give you a tactile idea of the improvements.
Users also report that at just 8 weeks, they already achieved significant improvements that’s supposedly reachable only 12 weeks into the treatment. Bosley – HairMax Laser Band
Particularly when compared with those involving substances, using the device is far from being uncomfortable, which can not be said for another hair loss remedies. The teeth on the apparatus feel just like any typical comb or hairbrush, although it might be slightly on the stiffer and thicker side. Think old school combs that your grandma probably employed.
It’s honestly just like having a regular combing routine. You just have to remember that the device works better if you keep the teeth of the comb as closely pressed to your possible while still allowing it to be moved comfortably. It’s also nice that it seems like your scalp is being massaged.
You should also remember that you ought to avoid looking directly into the lights that the system produces when it’s being used. It would be rather hard to do when taking it off your head. This is because the only indication that you’ve turned it completely off is if the lights on it go out.But because you need to press and hold the power button for a few seconds to turn off the device, your muscle memory will eventually learn this after a couple of uses. Admittedly, it would be simpler if the device gave off other signs like a gentle vibration or a sound cue so users can know that it’s turned off without looking at the light.
Let’s say that this is the first time trying out a product that combats hair loss. If that’s the case, the only frame of reference that you’ll need is how your hair really develops across the treatment. You might not need to test out other methods after this because this is probably the most hassle-free treatment style out there on the market. No chemicals are involved, and each session lasts for just minutes. However, you have to manage your expectations slightly depending on the severity of hair loss you already have. Suppose you’re really looking to see more improvements with your hair. If that’s the case, it’s ideal to use this product along with lifestyle changes such as a better diet and some exercise to keep your body and scalp healthy.
But, there is just no denying that this product can make significant improvements to your hair and scalp especially if you’re unfortunately part of the aforementioned 50%. The majority of those who tried out this product can vouch for this claim, and you do not even need to worry about any side effects. Along with the FDA seal of approval that people can rely on, you can trust this product to be completely harmless because it actually underwent clinical trials.
