Laser Comb for Hair Loss: Do They Work?

Updated on June 14, 2013

Young and losing hair?  What's up with that?!

Do laser combs work?

The answer depends on how badly damage your hair follicles are. Hair loss can be slowed down or prevented altogether if caught early enough. Hence, the sooner you do something, the better.

There are a handful of reasons why hair loss begins. For most, genetics play a large part. But in many cases, it's a matter of the hair follicles being blocked to grow hair. Some follicles that are not growing hair may simply need stimulation and can be saved, which is where laser combs can help. Follicles that are completely damaged will not grow anymore hair.

How do you use a laser hair comb?

The laser comb uses low level laser therapy to promote hair growth. One version has been tested and approved by the FDA, the Hairmax Lasercomb. Laser hair therapy has been used in hair clinics around the world. The laser hair comb is a small version made for home use.

You use the laser hair comb just like a regular brush. You comb it over your hair and scalp. And the built in low level lasers stimulate your hair follicles by increasing blood flow. In 5 to 10 weeks time you should notice a considerable difference in your hair quality, strength and thickness.

Use the Laser Comb in the Privacy of your Home

Do laser combs work for hair loss?

It can! The best way to prove this answer is by watching the video by Dateline NBC conducted over a 6-month period. There were 5 volunteers who used different hair loss treatment, including the Hairmax Laser Comb. The volunteer had encouraging results.

Does a laser hair comb help prevent hairloss?

Laser combs and other hair loss prevention techniques work best when there are still hair left to preserve. The laser combs work specifically to strengthen the shaft of weakening hair to avoid excessive hair loss. So there must be hair to strengthen. So as they say, the sooner you start treatment, the better!

Velform PowerGrow Comb

Power Grow Velform Laser Comb

A newer brand in the industry is the Power Grow Laser Comb from Velform who also makes and market other beauty / health products. The Power Grow comb seems to have begun its roots in the UK and other parts of Europe.

Small and portable, it is also for home and personal use.  It is conveniently carried for vacations, business trips, and other extended outtings.

Unlike Hairmax, the Velform laser comb has not made any real splash in the US market, if not the media. By that, I mean that the Power Grow has not been covered by talk shows and news segments like when Hairmax received its FDA clearance.  Thus far, most information about it has come from the Internet and infomercials.

Still, it could be another option; a much cheaper selection if money is tight.
