The Growcomb is a revolutionary new device that helps stimulate hair growth using patented ETG technology.
It helps stimulate hair growth by mimicking your body’s own natural signalling mechanism in as little as 10 minutes per day.
What is the Growcomb?
In short, the Growcomb is a device that emits electrostatic pulses directly to the scalp. These pulses resemble your body’s own physiological bio-currents.
But what effect does this have on the body?
The electrostatic pulses actually stimulate the nerves via the skin. This is what triggers the body’s natural healing process.
For those with pattern hair loss, these natural healing triggers may be inactivated.
These pulses may also help to relieve scalp tension – a leading cause of hair loss in most men and many women – and ensure that the hair growth cycle is undisturbed.
In the case of a thinning and balding scalp, this can lead to thickening of existing hair and regrowth of lost hair.
That’s not all, though.
The pulses from the brush can also increase localized blood flow which is crucial for healthy, functioning hair follicles.
And because the brush’s technology varies the intensity and rate of pulses, the body will never become accustomed to the treatment.
Does It Work? A Look at the Research
While current research on the Growcomb device is limited, there have been studies on the use of electrostatic pulses for hair growth.
One such study was published in here.
The study consisted of the administration of a pulsed electric field over a period of 36 weeks.
The treatment group saw the greatest results with a 66.1 percent hair count increase over baseline. This was in contrast to the control group which saw only a 25.6% hair count increase over baseline.
What’s more, 29 of the 30 treatment subjects exhibited regrowth or no further hair loss.

What is ETG?
ETG stands for ElectroTriGenesis.
It’s a long word so let’s break down what it means.
Try comes from the word trichology – meaning “the branch of medical and cosmetic study and practice concerned with the hair and scalp.”
Genesis means “the origin or mode of formation of something.”
Electro in this case refers to the pulsed electrostatic field that the comb emits.
ETG (electrotrigenesis) therefore essentially means the use an electrostatic field to stimulate new hair follicles.
The Growcomb uses this patented technology to help stimulate the hairs on the head to grow, resulting in thicker, stronger and healthier hair with more overall coverage.

How to Use It
Using the Growcomb is simple, and it only takes a few minutes of your time.
To begin, place the it against your scalp. Hold the handle firmly in your hand.
Use slow, circular motions to massage the scalp. You’ll want to increase the intensity of these motions until the scalp begins to tingle.
You’ll continue these motions, ensuring to massage each area of the scalp, for a total of 10 minutes per day.
The daily use time will likely decrease over time, and you may be able to use it just twice or three times per week in the future.
But because there is no current cure for pattern hair loss, the device will need to be used for the rest of your life to maintain these results.
The Growcomb should only be used on dry hair.
There are plenty of companies that make grandiose claims about their products. This seems to be especially true in the hair loss community.
So, is the Growcomb a legitimate hair growth device?
In short, yes.
The Growcomb doesn’t claim to provide miraculous results.
Instead, it aims to combine physiology and technology to stimulate and maintain a healthy hair growth process.
You aren’t likely to regrow hair that you’ve lost ten years ago. But this device does seem like a good device for those who want to maintain their current level of hair, and perhaps fill in some gaps, as well.
