HairMax manufactures a variety of hair loss treatments and hair growth products including the HairMax LaserComb, Hair Fibres, Essential Hair, Skin & Nails Vitamins, Enhancing Shampoo (sulfate-free), Revitalizing Conditioner, Invigorating Scalp Treatment and Scalp and Hair Fortifier Spray Mist.
The HairMax LaserComb is a handheld device that stimulates the hair follicles for the promotion of hair growth in men and women, strengthens the hair shaft, and has been shown to improve manageability, shine and condition of the hair. It is one of only three FDA cleared products for hair loss treatment, is the only non-drug based treatment, and has no known side effects.
The patented HairMax LaserComb uses low-level laser therapy, also known as photo therapy, to increase blood flow to the capillaries of the hair root, stimulating hair growth by allowing more nutrients to be delivered to the living cells that create the hair shaft. Laser phototherapy has been clinically proven to successfully treat hair loss and stimulate the hair follicles to promote hair growth by increasing the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the hair follicles – the fuel of the living cells that eventually make up the hair shaft within the follicle – and by increasing blood flow and circulation to the scalp. This in turn may also help prevent the miniaturisation of the hair follicles by clearing the area of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – the natural by-products that cause the condition.
Clinical studies performed in 2002 under an Independent Review Board protocol found 97.4% of the patients in the study showed benefits from using the HairMax LaserComb and 84.2% showed successful new hair growth with an average hair count increase for all patients of over 45%. The results of this key clinical study (published in the May 2009 Issue of Clinical Drug Investigation, indexed as Clin Drug Invest 2009: 29 (5): 283-292) eventually led to the FDA clearance of the HairMax LaserComb for the treatment of hair loss. A later study (published in the March 2012 Issue of Clinical Drug Investigation, indexed as Clin Drug Invest 2012: 27 (2): 431-436) also found the HairMax LaserComb to be effective for the treatment of alopecia areata.
To complement the treatment provided by the LaserComb, the manufacturer produced HairMax Essential Hair, Skin & Nails Vitamins – a nutritional supplement formulated to nourish hair from the inside and boosts the health of skin and nails. It contains androgen blockers such as beta sistosterol and antioxidants including resveratrol and glucosamine, which are understood to strengthen hair growth.
Hair growth does not happen overnight, however HairMax developed a ‘quick fix’. HairMax Hair Fibres will temporarily conceal thinning and bare patches on the scalp by increasing the appearance of hair density, volume and thickness. Made from an all-natural organic complex, Hair Fibres bind to existing hair to provide immediate results. They are available in a range of colours to naturally blend with the individual’s hair colour and will not interfere with hair loss treatments, such as the HairMax LaserComb.
To supplement the benefits of these hair loss treatments, HairMax developed a range of hair care products to promote denser, thicker, fuller looking hair.
HairMax Enhancing Shampoo (sulfate-free) is a gentle formula with low pH is designed to cleanse the hair without the harsh effects of sulfates that strip essential oils, exfoliate the scalp, and remove the build-up of sebum, styling products and environmental pollutants. It contains a blend of DHT blockers, antioxidants and therapeutic botanicals believed to optimise scalp health, and enhance hair volume and vitality.
HairMax Revitalizing Conditioner is a sulphate-free conditioner formulated to deeply hydrate the hair and retain moisture. It contains a combination of argan oil, plant extracts, and nutrients believed to deeply moisturise the hair shaft resulting in clean, shiny, soft and nourished hair.
HairMax Invigorating Scalp Treatment is a deep-cleansing treatment formulated to rid the scalp of excess sebum and lower pH levels, which can boost the performance of laser therapy.
