Hi again, I think the generic I tried was the Walmart one. I haven't tried the men's foam yet, but if I do go back to trying it, that will be the one I try. That is...as long as it won't have any bad effects on my blood pressure. Isn't this made from a blood pressure drug ? I remember seeing warnings to men a while ago about it. Kind of scares me. I'm a little paranoid about side effects of drugs. Any drugs. I haven't heard of the laser comb however. Sounds like it might be another thing for me to try. I also took Biotin for quite a while without success. Altho, my nails have improved a bit. I once used Nizoral prescription strength shampoo for another issue. I had some kind of dermatitis on my scalp & they gave me that plus a mild antibiotic to take for a long time. It finally worked & I could stop using both. Now, I'm getting a lot of Eczema. I'm getting it on my elbows & have spot on my upper, rear thigh area. From what, I don't know. I have noticed tho, that my hair is extremely dry lately. It seems to be breaking off more than falling out in clumps like it did before. There's just an awful lot of it in my sink, on my floor & in my brush. I grab handfuls of it at least twice a day. I try to not comb or brush my hair anymore than this. Only do it when it has to be done. No more. I also use wig brushes that are mild on my hair & scalp. Yes, they do have rubber tips.
