Laser hair combs work on the principle of phototherapy or light therapy. The correct laser frequency is concentrated on the scalp to increase blood circulation resulting in hair growth. The process, similar to photosynthesis in plants, is known as photobiostimulation. In a laser hair comb, lasers emit red (or cool) light waves which pass through the soft tissues of the scalp and about 5 to 6mm into the hair follicles. This light results in the increased molecular action of adenosine triphosphate(ATP) which stores and transports energy. This action increases cellular metabolism by stimulating the cells intake of nutrients and the removing waste products. In this process damaged tissues get replaced and repaired quickly resulting in increased hair growth and hair restoration.
Hair loss is slowed and in many cases reversed by use of a laser hair comb if body and scalp conditions are at their best. Some conditions are easily improved, and others require consultation with a medical professional. Make sure you consult your doctor before you change any health regimen including the addition or deletion of medications, change of diet and then the use of a laser hair comb. For optimum scalp health and to maximize the benefit of using a laser hair comb, your whole body needs to enjoy a balanced diet. This includes lean protein, soy, complex carbohydrates found in fruits and vegetables and monounsaturated fats found in extra virgin olive oil and nuts. Carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta and bread turn immediately to glucose and elevate blood sugar levels which hamper a balanced blood sugar level necessary for optimum health.
Before using your laser hair comb, make sure you read and understand the directions in the user manual. The best combs have batteries (not cumbersome electrical cords), so make sure you get rechargeable batteries for the most cost effective use. Brush your hair using the laser comb, as you do with your regular comb, or slowly move the comb over all areas of the scalp for 10 to 15 minutes. The bristles or teeth of the comb will keep the laser light at the correct distance from your scalp. The comb should be used on dry hair for 10 to 15 minutes, three days a week for the best hair restoration results.
We normally lose up to 100 hairs per day, but there are that many new hairs being generated in the follicles each day on a healthy head. At any one time 90% of the follicles are producing hair in a growth (anagen) cycle, but each follicle has its own time clock that can be influenced by age, disease, medicines and other factors. This timed life cycle has three stages. The anagen phase is active growth and lasts between two to six years. The catagen or transitional phase lasts from two to three weeks. The telogen or resting phase lasts two to three months, and at the end of this phase the hair is shed and new hair replaces it, starting the cycle all over again.
