project idea: "Laser" hair regrowth comb Answered

(I apologize if this is not the right place to post this) Long time Instructables fan.

Anyway, I had been reading about those laser hair combs that claim to regrow hair and realized, this is a perfect opportunity to DIY. For reference, this is the device in question: http://www.laserhaircomb.com/. I don't know anyone personally who's used it, so I don't know if the thing actually works or not, but I'm not going to spend $450 to find out.

Does anyone have any advice for proceeding? Take about a dozen computer mice, remove the LEDs and lasers, place on comb? Where would one go about purchasing the right parts?

Forget about using mice, use rabbits instead. Stick them to your head. Apparently, they look like hares from a distance ;-)

Seriously though, the manufacturers say that this does not work for (genetic) Male Pattern Baldness which represents 95% of all hair loss. If there is a different reason for someone's hair loss they should see a qualified Trichologist.

Gizmodo did a test a few months back... One of the interns used the brush every day for (?)a month. his hair was neatly brushed, but no thicker.

. I figure if someone comes up with a cure for baldness, a 100% reliable and safe oral contraceptive, a cure for cancer, a way to go faster than light, a car that runs on water, etc, I'll probably know about it within 48 hours (a week, tops). I'm still waiting. In spite of any biases that The News may have, they're pretty good at sniffing out BS.

But, are you sure its really a laser? They call them laser mice as a marketing term.

If I was going bald, I would take the opportunity to have hair taken from other parts of my body, and put to my head. Those systems sound so much more reliable than a laser. I would keep away from the laser. And in no way would I drop 450 dollars on something that I am skeptical about.

Theres no lasers in mice, its just an LED And I'm skeptical about the comb itself...
