$1.7 million at the Xiaomi site raised a hat for hair growth

And I don't think that amount is the limit

On the crowdfunding site of Xiaomi Youpin you can sometimes find extremely interesting devices. One of them is a hat... to stimulate hair growth.

The device is called Cosbeauty LLLT and costs 215 dollars. You can see the cap in almost all images. But in fact, the device itself is a hat, which the manufacturer just offers to hide under the cap, which comes with the kit.

What's more, the kit also includes a carrying bag and even some special hair care product that you need to apply before you put on your cap. The cap itself, which weighs 210g, does not have its own battery. It is powered by an external battery, which is also included.

As for the principle of operation, on the inner side of the cap there are special lamps that emit light with a wavelength of 650 nm, which supposedly should contribute to the activation of hair follicles. The manufacturer promises the effect already in 12 weeks. The product page even has photos of CFDA and FDA certificates, but because of the Chinese language it is difficult to understand what is written there. Apparently, we are talking about compliance of the device to a certain class of medical device.

If you think that such a strange device, also with external power supply, is doomed to failure, you are wrong. The company on Youpin is extremely successful - it has raised more than 1.7 million dollars, which is more than 4000% more than the amount requested by the manufacturer.

The reason is that the problem of male alopecia in China is very acute. One in four people between the ages of 20 and 40 suffer from alopecia.
