On the surface, the Hairmax Lasercomb sounds pretty good. It one of only 3 FDA approved hair loss aids in the US and was shown in clinical studies to promote hair growth in 93% of participants.
But when I researched further alarm bells began to ring.
Here's why I think you shouldn't buy the Hairmax Lasercomb:
This device is expensive, with a basic model selling for $295 (about £270). That is a lot of money to lose if you are one of the 7% for whom it doesn't work at all. However, I understand that you may be willing to pay anything to make your hair grow back so let's move onto the next point.
The clinical studies seem to give impressive results, but they do not say how much improvement the 93% of participants saw. This could have been nothing more than a few hairs. More details are needed from the company before I would buy their product.
Much was made of Hairmax Lasercombs FDA approved status, but this does not mean that the FDA agrees that it works. It simply means that it is considered safe to be used in the treatment of hair loss.
Some of the positive reviews out there sound quite fake, and there are plenty of negative reviews out there. For example:
“After my review period, I have to say I noticed no significant re-growth of my hair”
“Unfortunately, what I didn't see in the first 10 weeks was convincing hair growth”
“For me, it caused acne breakouts on my scalp which continued to get worse.”
“I have used this product for 9 months since March 3, 2010, and still there is no change in hair growth“
All in all its quite disheartening that this product doesn't seem to live up to its promises, judging by customer testimonials.
So you are probably looking at these reviews because you want something that really works for regrowing lost hair. I know of a product called Har Vokse that is based on a traditional Norwegian formula that is clinically proven to work.
You take a pill twice a day and use a spray twice a day, and before you know it the amazing hair growth results will begin. Some users see results in as little as 2 weeks with a few months being the best amount of time to wait to see significant hair regrowth.
It also shows a significant level of regrowth rather than the unknown rate that HairMax LaserComb has. In one clinical trial, 90% of the participants had an average of 63.9% hair regrowth. And as the study was for a short period of time, this hair regrowth percentage probably increased after further use.
