Despite the recommendation by HairMax, I think it would be beneficial for me to just focus on two areas (my sides). So how long should each spot get. I know in the recommended method, it is 4 seconds per 1/2 inch and it is repeated twice. So would that be 4 seconds for each area repeated twice.

The reason I have to do this is because I have afro hair, and it is really hard for the comb to cut through even wet. Since I am only struggling with these areas, I decided it would be best to just focus on the areas I am thinning. So what would be the total recommended time for one spot a day?
