Alcohol should be limited to one drink per day as it robs the body of zinc, vitamin B, folic acid and vitamin C and upsets blood sugar levels. Caffeine depletes the body of Vitamin B and C, potassium and zinc. Decreasing nutrients in the bloodstream increases levels of DHT which inhibits the growth of new hair. Use of a laser hair comb will not be as beneficial if DHT is allowed to accumulate in the follicles. Nicotine of course should be avoided. Even a laser hair comb cannot combat certain medications that may or may not be prescribed by a medical professional. The following is only a partial listing, and of course you must investigate any medications you are taking for their relevance to scalp health.
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.
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.
A licensed physician who specializes in female hair loss treatment can run blood tests or skin biopsies to determine these underlying causes. There number of reasons why serious hair shedding is occurring, and if they are not addressed by laser comb therapy, the attempt to reverse a hair thinning condition can be futile. A laser hair comb, depending on the amount of damage, may help in the case of traction alopecia. Perhaps you relied too much on corn rows and tight braiding for your favorite hairstyles. If you did, unfortunately, you put your problems with female hair thinning into motion. Called traction alopecia, this means you not only damaged the hair itself, but you seriously damaged the follicles. Your physician will be able to determine whether it would be useful.
