Up to forty percent of women experience hair loss or thinning. Unfortunately, women have fewer hair restoration options. Hair loss remedies include topical and oral medications, transplants, or concealing the loss with wigs, extensions or hairpieces. But now there are more options for men and women that provide true hair regrowth and restoration without the side effects of medication.
Hairmax pioneers state-of-the-art at-home laser hair regrowth technology.
We’ve previously featured Lee’s experience with the HairMax Lasercomb Professional 12.
Style Chicks presents an overview of some of HairMax’s exciting hair regrowth innovations. Each of these HairMax research-backed products and devices work on men and women. These include the HairMax LaserBand 82 and The HairMax Density Hair Care System that contains natural hair growth ingredients. Best of all, there are no side effects like many hair regrowth medications.
How does HairMax work?
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) occurs in both men and women. Women also experience an overall diffuse thinning of hair with age and sometimes post-partum hair loss.
HairMax uses Low-Level Laser Light Therapy or LLLT to treat AGA. Clinical studies show low-level laser light therapy can regrow hair. But not all hair growth devices get results. Research indicates only a specific laser light intensity can regrow hair.  HairMax devices deliver that intensity.
How Low-Level Laser Light Can Reverse Hair Loss
Hair loss can occur when the hair follicle experiences poor blood flow or the build-up of a hormone by-product called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT accumulates on the scalp and suffocates the hair follicle. The hair follicle slowly shrinks and produces thinner, shorter hair, until it becomes dormant and no longer produces hair at all.
Fortunately, DHT can be removed, and the follicle could grow hair again. But dormant follicles no longer receive the regular blood supply necessary for hair growth. Low-level laser light therapy both restores blood flow and gives the dormant follicle the” jump start” needed to actively grow hair again. Second, low-level laser light can extend the growth phase of hair to restore a healthy hair production cycle. Third, low-level laser light gives existing hair follicles an extra boost of blood flow and nutrients for stronger, thicker hair growth.
Why select the HairMax LaserBand 82 for hair loss treatment?
The FDA-cleared HairMax LaserBand 82 out-performs other devices. It does so in three primary ways:
- It delivers therapeutic low-level laser light with 82 medical-grade lasers. EIGHTY-TWO!! And these are actual lasers, not LED lights as seen on some hair growth devices.
- A key feature is the laser density placement within the band. This maximizes the hair growth per inch potential.
- The curved band features patented hair-parting teeth. The teeth give the laser light unobstructed hair follicle penetration.
HAIR REGROWTH RESEARCH
Studies show an average increase of 129 new hairs per square inch after six months of HairMax use. That’s thousands of new hairs! It also reverses thinning and revitalizes damaged hair.
Seven clinical studies and six peer-reviewed medical journals call HairMax a safe and effective treatment for men and women with mild to moderate hair loss.
A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Dermatology said low‐level laser therapy (LLLT) increase in hair counts was comparable to short-term clinical trials of 5% minoxidil (Rogaine) and 1mg/day finasteride (Propecia) but with no serious side effects. This is especially noteworthy for people who cannot take or tolerate medications.
Another study said “From our own observations, we share with other authors the opinion that LLLT represents a safe and potentially effective treatment option for patients with AGA who do not respond or are not tolerant to standard treatment of AGA…Moreover, combining LLLT with topical minoxidil solution and oral finasteride may act synergistic to enhance hair growth. Due to the known beneficial effect on wound healing, it is conceivable that LLLT as an adjunctive therapy”.
Our HairMax Experience
Hairmax is easy to use. Three times a week, move the device over the front, middle and back of the scalp. It beeps when it is time to move the device. I particularly like that it is cordless and can be used anywhere.
The HairMax is lightweight and comfortable. Treatment is quick and painless. There’s no itching or discomfort.
HAIRMAX TOPICAL HAIR LOSS REMEDIES
HairMax has researched ingredients that offer topical hair regrowth support. The HairMax Density Hair Care System is the result of that research.
The HairMax Density Hair Care System
Stimul8 Shampoo and Exhilar8 Conditioner cleanse and moisturize the hair and scalp. Clearing dandruff flakes and DHT creates a moisturized, healthy scalp to grow hair. Stimul8 Shampoo promotes scalp microcirculation to get nutrients to the hair follicles. It washes out clean without residue. It’s not a medicinal scent like other treating shampoos. Exhilar8 Conditioner leaves my hair hydrated, stronger, and protected from excess hair breakage. There is a light peppery spicy aroma while massaging Exhilar8 into my hair. This is the Amla. It rinses out clean and leaves a beautiful shine.
Acceler8 Hair Booster is a revolutionary light-activated leave-in serum. Apply it to the scalp before HairMax use. The laser light activates the ingredients for deeper penetration.
RSN8 Pro Scalp Treatment treats the biological aging of scalp skin. Most people experience thinner hair with age. Scalp skin is often neglected, but it needs extra hydration and care just like mature facial skin. This treatment isn’t greasy and my scalp feels healthy. The texture is light and it absorbs quickly with little to no scent.
After using this system, my hair looks better and feels stronger. Amla and Pomegranate Oils leave hair shiny and bouncy.
INGREDIENTS: WHAT MAKES THIS SYSTEM WORK
The HairMax Density Hair Care System treats the scalp and thickens thinning hair.
I particularly like the hair anti-aging benefits of the Density Hair Care System. Hair loss is often accompanied by brittle and lackluster hair. These products revitalize hair and scalp to act younger and grow healthier hair.
These four products use a liposome delivery system. This is superior to other topical hair loss remedies because the ingredients aren’t just sitting on top of the outer skin layer of your scalp, they actually penetrate the hair follicle. Each research-backed ingredient encourages hair growth.
The HairMax four-step system uses natural ingredients that synergistically work together to energize and nourish hair growth. NRG8-pLEX™ is HairMax’s proprietary blend of highly active ingredients that give the hair and scalp the energy and nourishment necessary for growing healthy hair. Some of these ingredients include:
Pomegranate Oil is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits. Pomegranate seed oil clears scalp buildup due to dandruff or fungus. It contains punicic acid which strengthens hair follicles and facilitates hair growth. It balances the pH of the scalp and makes dull hair look lustrous again. It is conditioning without being greasy.
- Adenosine ATP: ATP gives cells the energy to perform their task. For hair, it increases the Anagen stage and increases hair diameter. An extended Anagen stage maximizes hair growth time over hair rest time for maximum hair production.
Caffeine encourages blood flow to nourish follicles and encourage healthy growth. It also reduces water loss in the skin, keeping the scalp hydrated and in optimal balance.
- Saw Palmetto comes from Serenoa repens, a small palm plant. It is a natural DHT blocker. DHT is a natural hormone that accumulates on the scalp, especially when hair is not washed daily. DHT causes hair follicles to shrink, eventually choking out new hair growth until the follicle doesn’t grow hair at all. This occurs in both men and women. Saw Palmetto is also a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor. 5 alpha-reductase converts testosterone to DHT and has been associated with male pattern baldness. 
Apple Stem Cells stimulate dormant hair follicles to actively grow more hair. As we age, follicles take longer rest periods. Some follicles are dormant because DHT on the scalp has suffocated the follicle. Once the DHT is removed, the follicle may be able to be reactivated.
- Reishi Mushroom increases blood flow and slows down premature aging of the hair.
- Procapil Fights follicle aging and reduces the impact of DHT on follicles. It increases hair tissue repair.
Amla is nutrient-rich and restorative. It is a non-greasy oil to help grow long, silky and shiny hair. Indian Gooseberry makes hair soft, silky, and pliable. Amla nourishes both hair and scalp, promotes hair growth and to prevent grey hair.
- Niacinamide is Vitamin B3. It is an antioxidant that protects the scalp and hair from environmental damage and free radicals.
WHAT IT DOES NOT CONTAIN
The HairMax Density Hair Care System is Sulfate, Paraben, Silicone, and Gluten-free.
HAIRMAX Dietary Supplements
Research shows vitamin deficiencies can cause hair loss.
HAIRMAX Dietary Supplements contain:
- Biotin which helps hair cells reach the full growth cycle and build keratin.
- Niacin and minerals that support a healthy scalp and lush hair.
- Saw Palmetto reduces DHT production.
- MSM produces healthy collagen and keratin.
This formula contains no shellfish, gluten or yeast.
Take two a day for hair and nail growth support.
HairMax Quick Dry Hair Towel
Isn’t a towel just a towel? Not when it comes to your hair.
Hair breakage is common with hair loss. Wet hair is vulnerable. Keep hair in its’ best condition with a proper hair towel. A bath towel intended to dry off body skin is too rough for delicate wet hair. Terry cloth towels feel soft and fluffy on the skin, but can fray the hair cuticle and cause breakage.
The HairMax Quick Dry Hair Towel is an absorbent microfiber that’s gentle to hair. The Quick Dry Hair Towel is lightweight and it stays put.
This towel is generously sized at 19” x 52”. If you have long hair, you may have been disappointed with other hair towels. This one accommodates even very long hair. Got curly hair? This makes hair form into pretty well-formed ringlets and curls, not frizz. The towel cradles the hair while wicking moisture. The towel also removes enough moisture to optimize hair product penetration.
I let my hair air-dry about 70% in the towel, then finish off my hair with hair-drying on the lowest heat setting to style. I love the lack of frizz, and styling my hair is so much faster and healthier.
