Here at Giz we test a lot of gadgets, but it's not often we get to test them out on ourselves. Enter the HairMax laser comb. Thanks to my
dad's mom's genes and my soon-to-be-bald noggin', I'm the perfect guy to test it. So, what was it like? Well, it didn't burn, smoke, or sear my scalp (it's FDA-approved afterall). To be honest, I didn't feel a thing (not that you're supposed to). Though this I will say: My arm got tired very fast after holding it up for 15 minutes. We'll keep you updated on any, uh, growths. Otherwise, Gillette razor it is.
Yep when it comes to hair loss, you're screwed big time. The marketers see you coming and tell you just what you want to hear to get you on the hook. Rogain and those work some of the time for some people and you can't stop using it or you lose all whatever you gained, it's a drug companies dream come true.
Hair replacement surgery is for people who are norwood 5 or less, and have enough donor hair that's thick enough to help, also you'll need $50,000 because that's what it's going to cost.
Hair "systems" are one bet, they cost less, but unless you live near a Farrell Hair place you're in for crappy results due to every other place using shit quality components. Of course it's not your hair and there's a lot to deal with, but compared to surgery I'd consider it.
There's no laser comb, no all natural crap, nothing that will get your hair back except mentioned above. The marketers of these devices want you to believe, and buy, but it there was a device or shampoo, it would be sold out, you'd hear about it on CNN, but there isn't some magic bullet.
