Studies reveal that 50% of men by age 50 will have undergone signs of hair loss. This can range from insignificant to notable hair loss and for reasons such as genetics, amongst others. Even though the loss of hair appears to be less severe for women, it is still a problem for millions of women across the planet. In fact, some women even wind up being bald. Many people aren’t bothered by hair loss, wearing it like a badge which signifies wisdom through time. But, understandably, many are searching for ways to minimize its effect.

About HairMax HairMax On Vimeo
Establishing a reputation for showing significant results, Hairmax is one of the hair loss solutions doing its rounds online. In actuality, it did well enough to be given FDA approval.
Their most well-known product, LaserComb, has served as a blueprint of sorts for similar products. Having been able to sell a large number of goods through the years shows that they are doing something right in making their products. 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 says 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 or 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 energy functions to increase hair follicles’ strength on a cellular level. HairMax On Vimeo

Design And Features
Surprisingly, it is actually lighter than it seems at just 15 ounces.The 82 on the product name is actually because the band has 82 laser producing pins. The removable teeth on each side 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 unique sizes. This ensures that users can wear the device comfortably, no matter the head size.
To turn the device 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 treatment. These are the two treatment options available, so don’t be confused. 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.
Also keep in mind that you would need to do one whole movement after it vibrates if you picked the 30-second therapy But, if you decide on the 4-second therapy, then you would need 6 cycles to finish 1 session.
How Do You Use It?
Combing your hair for 10-15 minutes before each treatment is the first thing you should do according to the instructions. 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. Additionally, it says that the item 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 small time-consuming. But, the results certainly justify it. In any case, you’ll eventually get used to it after a couple of weeks or so.
The product is very easy to use and the instructions are pretty much straightforward. Charging the device for approximately 4 hours before your first time using it is necessary, so don’t skip this step. But it’s great that you don’t have to configure anything else aside from choosing the right teeth to the comb and adjusting it to fit in your mind the best approach.
It’s A Product For Both Ladies And Gents
Women going through a postpartum process can also benefit from this product, which is interesting because hair loss is much more commonly associated with men. For anybody who doesn’t know, baldness is a part of pregnancy for many women. In fact, for some women, it starts as early as 16 weeks into their pregnancy. This doesn’t occur for all women, however, as some say that they create shinier, healthier hair during their pregnancy. It all depends upon 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 will see a piece 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 naturally, it is 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 how the description says. To be sure, you can take a photo of your own hair every week and compare it to the diagram shown in the description. The point of this is to see for yourself how your hair grows after every weekly therapy.
Some improvements with your hair can be noticeable after 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 may 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 supply you with a tactile idea of the improvements.
Users also report that at just 8 weeks, they already achieved significant improvements that is supposedly accessible only 12 weeks to the treatment. HairMax On Vimeo
Overall, using the device is far from being uncomfortable, which can’t be said for some other hair loss treatments, much more those involving chemicals. The teeth on the device feel exactly like any typical comb or hairbrush, even though it might be slightly on the stiffer and thicker side. Think old school combs that your grandma probably employed.
Using a new combing routine is honestly just what using this product feels like. You just have to remember that the device works better if you keep the teeth of the comb as tightly pressed to your potential while still allowing it to be moved comfortably. That it seems 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 the only sign that you have 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 nicer if the device gave off additional signs like a gentle vibration or a sound cue so users can know that it has 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 which you will have. You might not have to try out other methods after this because this is probably the most hassle-free treatment style out there in the market. Aside from the fact that each session lasts for only minutes, there are also no chemicals involved. However, you have to manage your expectations slightly depending on the severity of hair loss you currently 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’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 do not even have to be worried about any side effects. You can trust this product to be entirely harmless because it actually underwent clinical trials and because it has that FDA seal of approval which people can rely on.
