Studies reveal that 50% of men by age 50 will have undergone signs of hair loss. This can vary from insignificant to notable baldness and for reasons such as genetics, among others. Although the loss of hair appears to be less severe for women, it’s still an issue for millions of women across the planet. Ending up bald can even be a possibility for some women. Lots of men and women aren’t bothered by hair loss, wearing it like a badge that signifies wisdom through time. But, understandably, many are searching for ways to minimize its effect.
If you prefer videos, you can watch this video from HairMax on YouTube. It’ll give you a sneak-peak and overview of the device, including how to use it.
About HairMax HairMax 12 Manual
Establishing a reputation for showing substantial results, Hairmax is among the hair loss solutions doing its rounds on the internet. In fact, it did well enough to be given FDA approval.
Their most well-known product, LaserComb, has served as a blueprint of sorts for comparable products. They have been able to sell a large number of products through the years. Among these products, Laserband 82 is probably their flagship device.
The HairMax LaserBand 82 is essentially a system that uses lasers to stop and even reverse hair loss. This is possible because of how laser treatment combats 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 plan is three times a week, one to two minutes per session.
Photo-biostimulation is another thing that the creators of the HairMax Laser Comb call this effect. This supposedly means that the laser energy functions to increase hair follicles’ power on a cellular level. HairMax 12 Manual

Design And Features
The product comes at only 15 ounces, which is surprisingly lighter than it looks.The band has 82 laser producing pins, thus the name. The removable teeth on each side of the actual band work like a comb: it parts and move hair so that the laser comes in contact directly with the scalp.
These teeth can be removed and replaced with unique sizes, depending on what fits best with your head. This ensures that users can wear the unit comfortably, no matter the head size.
To turn the unit on, you simply need 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 treatment. Do note that these are the two treatment options available. It’s also nice that the device gently vibrates to inform you that it’s time to move the ring to a different section of the scalp.
Also keep in mind that you would need to do one whole movement after it vibrates if you chose the 30-second therapy But, if you opt for the 4-second therapy, then you would need 6 cycles to finish one session.
How Do You Use It?
According to the instructions, 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 four seconds. It also says that the product should be used after shampooing, so your hair doesn’t have any sort of styling products. You can do every session 3 days a week. Yes, it’s a little time-consuming. However, the results certainly justify it. Besides, you’ll eventually get used to it after a few weeks or so.
Besides this, using this product is relatively straightforward. Just don’t forget that the unit has to be charged for about 4 hours before your first time using it. But it’s great that you don’t need to configure anything else aside from selecting the most appropriate teeth to the comb and adjusting it to fit in your head the best way.
It’s A Product For Both Ladies And Gents
Although hair loss is much more commonly associated with men, this product is also for women going through a postpartum process. For anyone who doesn’t understand, baldness 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 on how a woman’s body reacts to hormones, as well as their genes to some extent. Nevertheless, this product may be used by women and men.
Does It Really Work?
If you check the box, you’ll see a piece of paper that details how the product 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 exact same for all users. It’s not completely accurate, as others could lag behind a little but others see faster development than just how the description states. To be certain, you can take a photo of your own hair weekly and compare it to the diagram shown in the description. The point of this is to see for yourself how your hair develops after every weekly therapy.
Following 8 weeks of treatments, you can certainly see some improvements with your hair. It is even more obvious when you compare the photos that you took side by side. It is worth noting that improvements on the scalp may also be seen, which makes sense as the treatment is designed to boost hair growth at the follicle level. For a more tactile idea of the improvements, try running your hands through your hair and you’ll definitely see what I mean.
Users also report that in only 8 weeks, they already achieved significant improvements that’s supposedly reachable only 12 weeks into the treatment. HairMax 12 Manual
Overall, using the device is far from being uncomfortable, which can’t be said for some other hair loss treatments, much more those involving substances. The teeth on the device feel exactly like any standard comb or hairbrush, although it may be slightly on the stiffer and thicker side. Think old school combs that your grandma probably employed.
It is honestly just like having a regular combing routine. You just have to keep in mind that the device works better if you keep the teeth of the comb as tightly pressed to your possible while still allowing it to be moved comfortably. That it feels like your scalp has been massaged is another point for this product.
You should also keep in mind that you should avoid looking directly into the lights that the system produces when it’s being used. It would be kinda hard to do when taking it off your head. This is because you must see that the lights on the unit have completely went out to be sure that it really did turned off.Nonetheless, you’ll eventually get used to it with muscle memory as you need to press and hold the power button for a few seconds to turn the device off. Admittedly, it would be simpler if the device gave off other signs like a gentle vibration or an audio cue so users can know that it’s turned off without even looking at the light.
Let’s say that this is your first time trying out a product that combats hair loss. Seeing how your hair actually develops across the treatment would be the only frame of reference that you’ll have. You might not have to test out other methods after this because this is most likely the most hassle-free treatment style out there in the market. Aside from the fact that each session lasts for just minutes, there are also no chemicals involved. However, you have to manage your expectations slightly depending on the severity of hair loss you already have. Suppose you are really looking to see more improvements with your hair. Lifestyle changes such as a better diet and some exercise to keep your body and scalp healthy along with the weekly treatments would help out a lot, if that’s what you are aiming for.
But, there’s 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 don’t even have to be worried about any side effects. You can trust this product to be completely harmless because it actually underwent clinical trials and since it has that FDA seal of approval that people can rely on.
