Studies show that 50% of men by the age of 50 will have experienced signs of baldness. This can range from insignificant to notable hair loss and for reasons such as genetics, amongst others. Although the loss of hair seems to be less severe for girls, it is still a problem for millions of women throughout the globe. Ending up bald can even be a possibility for some women. Lots of people aren’t bothered by hair loss, wearing it like a badge that signifies wisdom through time. But, understandably, many are looking for ways to minimize its impact.

About HairMax HairMax Laser Band 82 Manual
Establishing a reputation for showing substantial results, Hairmax is among the hair loss solutions doing its rounds online. 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. Having been able to sell a large number of products through the years shows that they are doing something right in making their products. One of these products, Laserband 82 is most likely their flagship device.
The HairMax LaserBand 82 is basically a system that uses lasers to prevent and even reverse baldness. Laser treatment 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 plan is three times a week, one to two minutes per session.
The creators of the HairMax Laser Comb also say that the product does its magic through photo-biostimulation. This supposedly means that the laser energy works to increase hair follicles’ strength on a cellular level. HairMax Laser Band 82 Manual

Design And Features
The product comes at only 15 ounces, which is surprisingly lighter than it seems.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 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 different sizes, depending on what fits best with your head. This ensures that users can wear the device comfortably, no matter the head size.
To turn the unit on, you just 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 therapy. These are the two treatment options available, so don’t be confused. 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 picked the 30-second treatment 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 before 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 each four seconds. Additionally, it says that the product should be used after shampooing, so your hair is free of any kind 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. In any case, you’ll 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 don’t forget that the unit needs 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 aside from selecting the most appropriate teeth for 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 more commonly associated with men, this product can also be 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 weeks 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 degree. Nevertheless, this product may be used by women and men.
Does It Really Work?
If you check the box, you will see a bit of paper which details how the product should improve your hair from week 0 to week 12. In my experience, it’s pretty close. But naturally, it’s expected that it won’t be the same for all users. It’s not completely accurate, as others could lag behind a little but others see faster development than how the description states. To be sure, 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 therapy.
Some improvements with your hair can be noticeable following 8 weeks of treatments. It is even more obvious when you compare the photographs that you took side by side. 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. 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 at only 8 weeks, they already achieved significant improvements that’s supposedly accessible only 12 weeks to the treatment. HairMax Laser Band 82 Manual
Overall, using the unit is far from being uncomfortable, which can not be said for another hair loss treatments, much more those involving chemicals. 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 used.
It is honestly just like having a regular combing routine. You just have to keep in mind that the system works better if you keep the teeth of the comb as tightly pressed to your possible while still allowing it to be moved comfortably. It’s also nice that it seems like your scalp has been massaged.
You should also keep in mind that you ought to 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.But because you need to press and hold the power button for a few seconds to turn the device off, your muscle memory will eventually learn this after a couple of uses. Admittedly, it would be nicer if the device gave off additional signs such as a gentle vibration or a sound 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 looking for a product that combats hair loss. In that situation, the only frame of reference that you’ll need is how your hair really develops across the treatment. You might not have to try out other methods after this because this is most likely the most hassle-free treatment style out there in 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. 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 is just no denying that this product can make important improvements to your hair and scalp especially if you’re unfortunately part of the aforementioned 50%. Most of those who tried out this product can vouch for this claim, and you do not even have to worry about any side effects. You can trust this product to be entirely harmless because it actually underwent clinical trials and because it’s that FDA seal of approval which people can rely on.
