Give the Gift of Hair Growth: 6 Reasons Why the Capillus Cap is a Great Gift Idea

Do you know a friend, family member, or loved one who is struggling with early stages of hair loss? Watching large strands of intertwined hair collect in your shower drain or seeing thinning and receding around your hairline can induce a great deal of stress. Any of your loved ones, particularly the aging men in your life, might be wholly unaware of useful treatment methods available nowadays that work! And here’s a fun fact: You can be the savior they didn’t know they needed. At Capillus, we’re all about hair and hair regrowth.

Our laser caps are designed to effectively induce hair regrowth in those struggling with androgenic alopecia and thinning hair. Let’s explore the signs of hair loss and just why a Capillus Laser Cap is the perfect gift.

Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is a common occurrence that affects millions of men around the globe every year. The fortunate, and unfortunate, thing for men is that male pattern baldness is just that—a pattern. This means it can be easily identified and treated at an early stage—doctors and scientists rely on the Hamilton-Norwood classification scale to determine the stage of hair loss in men. While male pattern baldness can be easily spotted, once it’s noticed it can affect one’s confidence and life.

Change in Your Hairline

This is one of the most identifiable signs of hair loss in men, and it will usually be the first that is instantly noticeable. Changes in hairline often begin at the temples, where hair will thin until the hairline starts flattening and receding into a noticeable “M” shape.

If you’re unsure if your hairline has begun receding, consider taking old photographs and comparing your hairline from before to today. This basic comparison can help you identify whether your hairline has shifted over time.

If you do not have any older photos currently on hand, you should take a few “before” photos and watch your hairline over the next few months. Take photos under adequate lighting to make sure your hairline is as noticeable as possible, allowing you to effectively track potential hair loss.

Thinning of Your Hair

While overall scalp thinning is more common in women, male pattern baldness often causes what is called diffuse thinning—balding that affects specific areas of the scalp, either on the top or back of the head. Similar to tracking the changes in a receding hairline, inspecting your thinning hair is as simple as comparing old photos with current photos. Furthermore, you can also regularly check the condition of your hair in a wall-mounted mirror or hand-held mirror to determine the thickness of your hair.

Hair Loss When Showering or Brushing

We all notice some hair loss when showering—washing or conditioning our hair—and brushing our hair before leaving home. However, excessive hair loss from either of these activities should be a reason for concern. If there is a great deal of hair collecting in your shower drain or piling up in your hairbrush, it’s possible that you’re struggling with some type of hair loss, which, if not treated, can only get worse.

What to Do About Hair Loss

Hair loss can be concerning for many as they age, and understandably so. Our hair is a vital part of our overall physical presentation to others. A messy bedhead look can give off the appearance of being unkempt and ill-suited for professional situations, whereas neatly styled hair can present an air of attractiveness to anyone meeting you for the first time. Overly styled hair can appear unbecoming and stark, like a face wearing far too much makeup.

Hair loss is a struggle for many people, particularly for the aging effects it has. Hair loss can lead to a man looking older without looking more distinguished. And, in many cases, it can lead to a man's loss in self-confidence. They are always aware of their hair loss, making it a sore spot for their ego.

Thankfully in modern society, there are many solutions available, so hair loss can be effectively reversed. If someone you know has been struggling with hair loss, you should consider sending them to their primary care physician or dermatologist to discuss treatment options. Or even better, you can give them the gift of hair regrowth this holiday season.

Laser Hair Growth Technology

While there are numerous types of treatments for hair regrowth, from salves to surgical options, there has not proven to be a more efficient non-pharmaceutical treatment than laser hair therapy.

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Treatment

  • Low-level light therapy is a clinically proven hair loss treatment used to fight pattern baldness in both men and women.
  • Low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) is a therapeutic treatment that has been widely studied in past years. It has been shown to effectively treat a wide range of conditions, including male pattern baldness, particularly for men with Hamilton-Norwood IIa-V stages of hair loss.

Accepted scientific theories show that LLLT, when utilizing wavelengths of light in the visible range, particularly red light, positively induces hair regrowth. The scientific theory states that laser hair growth treatment activates cytochrome c oxidase and increases mitochondrial electron transport, which leads to an increase in ATP within the scalp. Subsequently, hair follicles will reverse from their dormant stage of growth (telogen) to the active growth stage (anagen), leading to effective hair regrowth now and in the future.

While there are numerous types of LLLT devices available on the market, from combs to skull caps, scientific studies have shown that products with the most effective results are ones with a high-concentration of laser diodes. This is due to the scientific nature of laser diodes, which emit unfocused light until stopped by a surface, at which point they will distribute and scatter light until it disperses completely. This effectively means that laser light, which is emitted with a specific intensity, will travel from its source until it comes in contact with a surface and its intensity decreases due to scattering—i.e., loss of momentum.

If a device has a lesser number of lasers, or less directed lasers—all which can easily scatter across a short distance—there will be less light coming in contact with the skin. This means that treatment will not be as effective. For devices such as laser combs, this is bad news. But, for the Capillus laser caps, this is great news, as the high-density of laser diodes utilized means that you’ll get the most effective form of laser hair growth treatment available.

4. Clinically proven to restore hair.

5. FDA-cleared treatment for hair loss.

Our line of laser hair therapy caps has been cleared by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for hair regrowth in people struggling with androgenic alopecia. The FDA determined that, clinically, Capillus laser therapy caps can be considered, and marketed, as medical devices, so they can be legally sold in the U.S. as such.

This ensures that customers receive a reliable product that is trusted to provide the medical treatment as described. When giving this gift, you’re giving the gift of treatment assurance.
