I want to post my experience with the Hairmax laser band so far.
I went bald from taxol in 2017-18. I stopped chemo and went on Anastrozole in mid 2018 and continued on Herceptin and Perjeta.
My hair did begin growing back but the crown and front hairline grew very slowly and came in thin, and my hairline seemed further back than I remembered. My hair was also limp, no curl and very fly away. .I had it cut very short in early 2020 to try to give it a chance to even out and maybe come in thicker.
Well it grew quite a bit but still very thin and flyaway. August 2021 I started using the laser band. I got it for about 400 from the Hairmax company itself on EBay. Supposedly a “refurbished “ unit , it looked brand new to me. Could be they refurbish the returned units...not sure, but this one was pristine and looked new.
So, they say to give it four to six months but I feel like I'm seeing results already, I see a lot of new hair “baby hair" at the hairline, and the rest of my head has a lot more body. Not sure it's actually thicker or more plentiful beyond those baby hairs, but it's definitely less flyaway and looks more voluminous whether or not it actually is. And, easier to manage.
They say something about “waking up" the hair follicles in their ad and my hair does look a little more awake!
I bought their shampoo, conditioner and leave-in in travel size because ai really think it's too pricey. I used the conditioner and the leave-in only once and, they did leave my hair feeling nice and not too heavy and “overconditioned".
I don't take any extra B vitamins or any “hair supplements “ just doing the laser band and I do feel like I'm getting results.
