Power Grow Laser Comb Review

As I was brainstorming for my next post on this blog, it suddenly occurred to me that I had bought a power grow laser comb on eBay before the model I use presently. The type of laser comb I use right now is way beyond the power grow laser comb in terms of quality. I should’ve gone with my initial instincts, the price was too low and the packaging seemed pretty dodgy to me. Truthfully the price was way too good and the packaging claims made me want to try it.

If you’re unfamiliar with the product basically you are made to believe its all laser beams when in fact there is only one real laser in the laser comb. The rest of the light beams you see in the packaging and in the commercials are in fact LED lights and not actual lasers. Besides having only one laser it’s also made out of really cheap plastic; essentially has a very real cheap feel to it. Now there is nothing wrong with using LED lights, there are plenty of studies which indicate benefits with using this type of therapy.

However the way the commercials are and the packaging is you’re made to believe there is more than just one laser on the comb. I would imagine it doesn’t take a genius to realize at this point I wasn’t too happy with the purchase. To sum it all up, a very really cheap feel, battery-operated and only one real laser on board. But hey you want to give it a shot you never know, it might just work. And just for the record I am not a competitor nor do I sell any laser combs, I simply give reviews sometimes and this is my review of the power grow laser comb.

Used Ebay Laser Combs

As I was doing research online to purchase my first laser comb, I noticed something that seemed a bit odd. Online you can find multiple brands and different types of laser combs all over the place in particular eBay as I said before. However something I saw which seemed pretty odd to me was the sheer amount of used laser combs on sale. There are literally tons of used laser combs available for purchase. Basically what this means to me is there are plenty of people losing their hair who have tried using a laser comb and for whatever reason decided just to sell it.

I decided to send various emails to people who were selling their used laser combs on eBay just as to why they were selling them. Many of them actually answered me and funny enough various others chose not to answer me back for whatever reason. I was fairly surprised as many of them were quite honest and simply said it either did not work for them at all or it was just taking too long for them to see any improvement so they decided to sell. A couple people said they upgraded to a better unit so they decided to sell their old ones, a few others just said they just frankly got tired of holding the comb over the head for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.

Regardless of all this I decided I still wanted to go along with this experiment. In general it seems low level laser therapy either really works for you or doesn’t. Laser combs don’t seem to have much of a middle ground you will either get some new hair growth/hair thickening or no results at all. Obviously I am hoping to be one of the people who gets excellent results, with this type of hair loss prevention therapy.

Ebay Laser Comb

Like I said before on a previous post I went online to buy the laser comb, in fact it was eBay where I bought it. Before buying it I did a lot of research on the comb itself. The reason for all the research is because there are a lot of laser combs on the market today for sale. There are name brand labels, generic ones and even truly home-made models on the market today. The prices vary just as much, from $25 up to something in the range of $600 dollars. The combs range from cheap plastic to expensive feeling metal.

Just for the record the company that started it all in the mainstream and still the most popular brand is The HairMax LaserComb®. It’s a fine looking product with lots of research behind it but it’s also very expensive. I did not buy the Hairmax because quite frankly this is really an experiment for me and I did not want to spend so much money on it. I bought a cheaper yet good model with 8 actual lasers. This is very important because they were actual lasers and not 8 LEDs lights. ((LED) light-emitting diode) LED light is supposed to be good as well but they are essentially a cheaper alternative to real lasers and all the hair growth studies were done with the lasers beams. I will probably do a separate post on that topic in the near future.

These days they have laser systems which incorporate both technologies and something I would definitely like to try down the road. Getting back to the main topic, I basically bought a well-made generic brand laser comb. It has a nice feel to it although a bit cheap feeling but has what appears to be 8 powerful lasers. As long as the lasers keep working I will be a happy camper.

I am excited to start this low level laser therapy experiment and observe the results. I spent about $100 dollars on the comb and it has real lasers for sure, so even if I don't get any results at all at least its $100 I lose and not $500 . If my hair does seem to get thicker then I will consider this a successful test. Everyone will have their own wants from a test like this, but to me any positive results will be good enough for me.
