Are HairMax laser devices effective if I have hair extensions?
You can use HairMax laser devices if you have hair extensions. To treat your hair loss when you have them, you must remove the teeth mechanism on the device if you are treating your condition when the extensions are in place. This will prevent any of your hair extensions from becoming caught on the teeth and being pulled off. After removing the teeth, the device should be held on top of your hair.
