Are you worried about your hair? Let’s take a look at the early signs that you’re losing your hair.
What do your parents look like? Seriously, is your dad bald? Does your mom have wispy thinning hair? Heredity plays a big role in hair loss, but the exact genetics map is not well understood. There is evidence of several different genes being implicated both on the X and the Y chromosome.
There is a considerable research being done in this area right now, but the definitive answer remains elusive. Some studies suggest up to 80% of your hair loss problem is genetic. Some studies point to genes on the X chromosome (from your mother’s side of the family) as being the main culprit, and other studies point to the Y chromosome from your father.
Fortunately, many mates find baldness attractive or this p
There are some questions that pop up over and over, so, we've devoted a blog post to answering them for you.
1. Does it hurt to use the laser cap?
No, it doesn’t. It’s completely painless. And now we have redesigned the cap to make it extremely comfortable.
2. Can I fly with my Capillus Laser Cap?
Yes, you can. In fact, we devoted an article specifically to address that question.
3. Do I have to cut my hair to use your laser cap?
No, you don’t. The laser will reach your scalp through your hair in most cases. Discuss this with us if y
Capillus is excited to announce the rebranding of our clinical hair care products and keratin hair fibers product line.
In an effort to better reflect the company’s core products – the laser therapy caps – Capillus has rebranded the ancillary lines of products to the new brands: Cap+ and RXCap+, all of which can either be used independently or in conjunction with the FDA-cleared Capillus laser therapy caps.
Capillus clinical hair care products will now go by the Cap+ name. The Cap+ clinical hair care products use the best ingredients that gently cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize hair for overall scalp health.

Hormones are special types of molecules in the body that have the role of signaling other molecules. There are tons of different hormones that influence most body functions including metabolism, fertility, mood, sleep, and growth to name but a few.
For most things to work properly in the body, several hormones may work together or even at odds with each other. The important point here is that hormones are in and need to stay in a delicate balance.
So, it’s no surprise that hormones can have a significant (and devastating) effect on hair loss in women as well as men. We know that dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone, is one of the main culprits behind male pattern hair loss. Even though women have much less testosterone than men, women still have some testosterone, and DHT can also be a factor in female pattern hair loss, too.
Have you ever wondered what exactly is the difference between laser and LED light therapy? There are many differences; let’s take a look at them.
Coherent and Incoherent Light
The major difference between LED and laser light is that laser light is “coherent” and LED light is “incoherent.” This means that laser light photons are in parallel. The light waves have the same frequency and the same phase.
In contrast, LED light is what’s called “incoherent.” This means that the light photons and waves do not have the same frequency or the same phase. In other words, LED light spreads out and lots of energy gets wasted. LED light cannot be concentrated or pulsed like lasers can, so it’s impossible to focus the light on specific areas.
Similarly, since LED light cannot be focused like
