She did not feel either really promoted more growth. Other forum postings are divided between people who feel Lasercomb really helped them and others who feel that they wasted their money.
My conversation with Nancy Ryan confirmed my thought that certain types of hair loss may respond better to the Lasercomb. “Male pattern baldness” is a specific type of hair loss called androgenetic hair loss and is related to DHT hormone levels. Women with this form of hair loss may have good results with the Lasercomb but if hair loss is from diseases such as thyroid or diabetes, stress from infections or surgery or even from alopecia areata, results could vary.
In the quest for products that will help prevent hair loss and promote regrowth, the Lasercomb sounds like it works for some of the people some of the time. You may have to try it to determine if you will fall into the lucky group provided you have a spare $500 to buy one.
