Once you start to use the product you select for your hair loss problem, remember hair takes time to recover and grow.

The secret of success is to maintain your treatment over weeks and months, as directed. Eg: a LaserComb needs to be used 3 or 4 times a week. If using hair loss treatment patches, a new one needs to be applied on a daily basis.

HairMax LaserComb (For Men & Women)

Reduce hair loss and promote regrowth
The Professional 12 LaserComb is top of the HairMax range and is a safe, effective way to treat hair loss and promote hair growth in men and women.
This is the only FDA approved product for Men and Women.

The 12 lasers reduce treatment time to just 8 minutes. Using the lasercomb three times a week is all that’s required to achieve optimum results. Cordless for ease of use, it’s attractive ergonomic design means it fits into the hand like a brush.

Main benefits
• Increased hair growth
• Faster growing hair
• Increased thickness and fullness of hair
• More manageability and vibrancy
• Revitalisation of dormant hair follicles

What to expect

A typical user can expect the following changes:
Weeks 1-8 Users may begin to notice more shine and fullness and a slight increase in shedding. This slight increase in shedding is only temporary and is actually a good sign that the treatment is working. The focused laser energy will be gently and effectively nourishing the hair follicles to stimulate new hair growth. This new healthy hair will push out the ”resting” hairs, which would have been shed anyway.
Weeks 8-12 Most users start to see noticeable hair growth.
Weeks 12-20 Based on clinical studies, during this period most users experience a number of benefits, including: new hair growth, a cessation of hair loss and healthier, thicker hair. Some users will require more than 12 weeks to experience the full benefits.
Post 20 weeks Those who are already experiencing the benefits will continue to do so. Ongoing use of the LaserComb is needed to maintain healthy hair growth. If you stop any benefits gained may gradually disappear.

If a user has not seen results within 20 weeks, they are encouraged to continue using the LaserComb on a regular basis. The key to seeing best results is to use the HairMax LaserComb consistently three times a week for 10-15 minutes per treatment.

Your hair is a product of your scalp.

Dryness, dandruff, irritation, lank greasy hair, spots, inflammation, hair loss and much more can all be symptoms of an unhealthy scalp, but improving its health can lead to enormous improvements to the condition of your hair and possibly to its ability to grow better.

This juniper mint scalp therapy shampoo has been clinically developed by a leading hair specialist, Tony Maleedy, and can have dramatic effects on your scalp and hair. This shampoo is an incredibly rich blend of natural, therapeutic oils. Juniper, corn mint, thyme, tea tree and rosemary oils are combined with coconut derived cleansers to create this unique shampoo. Not only does it ensure that your scalp is healthy and in optimum condition for hair growth, but the natural oils impart long lasting moisture leaving your hair soft, shiny and in wonderful condition.

How to use the Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo
Wet hair thoroughly and apply the shampoo. Gently massage into the hair and scalp and leave for about three minutes before rinsing to allow the active ingredients to take effect. Apply an appropriate conditioner according to your hair type. If you wash your hair daily one lather is enough.

Initially use the shampoo every day or every other day, then as your scalp improves reduce to twice a week for a few weeks. Eventually use the Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo once a week to maintain a healthy scalp and hair.

The Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo doesn’t just improve the health of your scalp, it also has excellent effects on your hair.

• Moisturising and conditioning your hair
The rich essential oils from which the Juniper Mint Scalp Therapy Shampoo is made, along with naturally derived conditioning and moisture-binding agents, replenish moisture in the hair fibres and increase the hair’s strength and elasticity, so reducing breakage and leaving your hair feeling naturally healthy and in excellent condition.

• Hair loss reduction
In a study carried out at the University of Liège in Belgium, when an anti-microbial agent called piroctone olamine was incorporated into a shampoo at a level of 1% it had a significant effect in the prevention of hair loss in men and the encouragement of new hair growth.
