It’s been almost a month since my last update and as you can tell from the last two images above, no new hair… I’ve had an email from someone saying my pictures can be subjective and might not give the true picture. He suggested that I do a video around my head to show things better. I actually tried to do that but it’s almost impossible to do it by myself so I’m sticking with the pictures.
​Ingesting unhealthy pills to counter the symptoms might seem like a solution for hair loss. Others might consider the painful and overly expensive hair implants surgery. Toupees are also flooding the market. But what if I told you that there is a cheaper and safer way to rejuvenate your hair growth and thickness? Behold the new iGrow hair growth system
The more time I spend on this planet the old adage that you never know what you have until it's gone rings more and more true. I have always had long, beautiful hair—it has been part of my identity. And I never once actually thought about how lucky I was to have a full head of lustrous, flowing hair until a few months back when my stress levels hit the roof and it started breaking off and falling out.
Treating hair loss has never been easier. iGrow® is one of the most powerful 100% "hands-free" FDA cleared hair growth systems for home use and is intended for both men and women. The iGrow Hair Growth System utilizes a proprietary combination of 51 LED diodes and low level lasers to treat affected areas of the scalp by energizing unhealthy follicle cells and promoting hair growth.
Reduces hair loss: A good number of people with chronic hair loss bought this device. Some had prior complains of fistfuls of hair falling off whenever they washed or combed. After a few weeks of use, their hair was no longer falling off. Others complained of prior rapid hair loss. The device was able to slow down this to nil. This made some a little skeptical and were left asking “does iGrow work?” When they got rid of the device however, their rapid hair loss returned. Give it time
The science behind LLLT therapy is that medical-grade, low-level lasers and red light therapy penetrate the scalp and stimulate hair follicles. To dig deeper into the science, the photons emitted from the light stimulate follicles on a cellular level which, in turn, increases adenosine triphosphate production. ATP is the primary carrier of energy in the cells and enhances cell function and replication.

Besides, the majority of home-use laser hair growth devices we reviewed are portable. You can stay busy around the house while you wear them, or take them on a trip. That’s much more convenient than visiting a doctor’s office or spa for treatments. And the chances are that the cost of a laser device is lower than paying for repeated sessions elsewhere.

The second guy really sucked at using his camera and already had a full head of hair so I was kind of weary about him anyway. The key here is that the guy in the first review had success using the iGrow laser helmet. Or did he? He showed some convincing before and after photos, and I am not here to call anyone a liar, but he admitted he was part of a test study for the product. I would be inclined to believe that he was simply endorsed for that video review with a free iGrow Laser Helmet. The guy with the shitty camera in the second review says somewhere in his comments that he returned the iGrow. He had to go through the wringer to get it and was charged an 18% restocking fee just to get his money back.
Apira Science, which is a privately held company founded by Braile and two other partners not only offers the iGrow for hair growth, but is preparing to launch their latest device, the iDerma, a hands-free facial mask that utilizes a combination of 142 red (660nm) and infrared LEDs (940 nm) in both narrow and wide angle lenses that reduce fine lines, wrinkles, minimize pores, improve texture and boost overall skin health. iDerma officially launches in January but is available to purchase now on Amazon or directly from their website.
1) There have been no head to head studies (no pun intended) comparing the HairMax LaserComb to any other devices. However, we believe that the HairMax is a better designed device, in that it has a patented hair parting teeth mechanism built into the device. Since hair blocks light from reaching the scalp, we believe that the HairMax in parting the hair as it is used, delivers optimal energy, unlike ‘top of the hair’ devices such as the helmets and hoods.
Hello, I am looking forward to your review as I am a 43 year old male who finally bit the bullet and had a procedure done at Bosley yesterday. The doc recommended some sort of laser therapy to keep the hair I have and I ran across this product on Amazon. I am looking forward to some real world testing before I spend that kind of money on a product. Good luck to you as I hope it gives you the results we all hope for!
I’ve tried a few different things with the hopes that it might make my hair recover. There’s Biotin, which I’m still taking once a day. I don’t think it’s really doing anything. I’ve tried some hair vitamins called Hairfluence for a couple months. They didn’t really help either. The latest test has been Biotin shampoo which I’ve been using for a month or so without any noticeable effects. So when I was offered the chance, I was totally game to try the iRestore.
I completely understand. It does feel different when you’re female though. I think hair is more important to women and more important to the way people feel about a woman. It’s completely acceptable for a guy to be balding, or have a buzz cut, but not so much for a woman. Case in point, I was recently shopping at Walmart and some older guy in a wheelchair made the unsolicited comment that it looked like someone had done a number on my hair. I asked him what he was talking about and he repeated his comment. I replied that I like to keep my hair very short. Then I turned away and he said “looks like a boy’s haircut to me” I just walked away without saying anything because it took me off guard and kind of embarrassed me. Of course 5 seconds later I was just pissed about it, but it was too late to make a witty comeback.
The “Lost in Space” Igrow space helmet doesn’t work at all, neither stopping hair loss nor growing new hair, from my $600 experiment with the device, religiously using the device every other day for 7 and one-half months, to the current date, 9/02/2015. Was it a total waste of money? Yes, but one has to weigh the cost of the helmet against other, more costly treatments. So, in that respect, it simply was a costly “crapshoot” that didn’t work.
I'm so sorry to hear you didn't get the hoped-for results from using the iGrow. Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is a clinically-proven treatment for genetic hair loss, but naturally results can vary from person to person depending on many factors such as extent of hair loss, genetics and just the differences between individuals. Many people are indeed happy to wear hats, shave their heads or just learn to "live with it", but for those who are not the iGrow has helped thousands of men and women worldwide with their thinning hair.  

I Grow is a revolutionary safe, effective, in-home hair growth/stimulation device that helps stop the hair loss process and return the thin hair back to a healthier, fuller and thicker state. It is fully portable, easy to use and equites no manual movement. I Grow incorporates Apira Science’s proprietary dual combination of red laser and LED light diodes to effectively stimulate cellular activity causing a reenergizing of the natural function of the hair follicle. This has been proven to reverse the hair loss and thinning process over a 4 to 6 month period. This noninvasive hair rejuvenation device is safe, effective and affordable with no side effects, unlike pharmaceuticals, topical and pills used to treat hair loss. The typical treatment is wearing the laser helmet at least three times a week for an average of 20-25 minutes per session.
That thing is hideous. If it does restore my hair though, that does not bother me in the least. The two giant earmuff looking things you see there do actually act as headphones as well. It is fully compatible with your iPod or any other mp3 player. That’s a nice little bell they added and the whistle is the adjustable clips that fit almost any head size. Now let’s break down the technical specifications of the iGrow Laser Helmet as advertised. The important thing to remember here is that an effective wavelength for LLLT is at 655 nanometers.
The hair rejuvenation solution for the 21st century. Kill the comb over and check out the Apira Science's iGrow Helmet, a stylish new wearable device that packs 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights. The iGrow Helmet is a hair-growing helmet designed to mimic the effects clinical hair lasers. The iGrow Helmet includes a remote that has been programmed for both men and women, and it has a built-in set of headphones that you can use with your own iPod or MP3 player - we can't imagine why you'd ever want to take it off. The headphones should make marathon hair regrowth sessions easier to sit through.
With built in head phones that can connect to your MP3 player, iPod or anything else with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, you don’t even have to do anything – you could just sit back and relax if you like! Treatment sessions are completely automatic and take just 20-25 minutes. With just two or three sessions required per week, you can see results in as little as 12 weeks and your hair will only continue to improve in strength and thickness from there on in.
The iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System has been designed to be easy, comfortable, safe and simple to use in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The hands-free design allows you to get on with other things while completing your treatment, and is comfortable too, thanks to the lightweight design and 4 adjustable fit columns with rotating weight distribution for ultimate comfort.
This product, iGrow Laser Helmet uses the LLLT technology to solve the problem of hair loss among both male and female human beings. The use of red laser in the technology is in most cases feared to cause heating effect on the users, a claim that is highly condemned by those whom have undergone the whole therapy process and come out without any heating of the head noted. The laser beam is so controlled in terms of wavelength and frequency that it is not heating up the hair follicles at any cost. However, the laser beam activates the respiratory ability of the cells at the hair follicle hence enhance the growth activities and the burning of fat at the regions around the skin.

This type of hair loss in men has been associated with a number of other medical conditions including the enlargement of the prostate, and coronary heart disease. Additionally, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and obesity can all be contributing factors to hair loss. In women, this type of hair loss is usually associated with polycystic ovary syndrome, which is characterized by a hormonal imbalance. 
I have now used the igrow for 2 years. I originally used it on alternative days on the 20 minute setting. I done this for a year. I then changed to 3 times a week. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays. But on the 25 minute setting. The igrow has really halted my hair loss. My hair is also much fuller. Not sure about any regrowth? Just what you have has more chance of staying and does thicken up. I also use a volume increasing shampoo and conditioner. I always make sure my hair is fully dried before using the igrow and I never use it with any gels, mousse etc in my hair. Not sure if that would make any difference? But I like to give it the best chance of working.
Donna the true facts are that if you have hair follicles that still have a live hair bulb in them then the hair can improve. If your hair follicles are dead there is no improving them. The fact is that if you buy on QVC they allow you to use the Igrow for 6 months and if in that time your are unsatisfied with your results they will give you a full refund. Therefore you have nothing to lose. If you like the results keep it and if you don’t, get your money back. It can’t be more simple. HMS Happy was joking at my expense. He or she was mocking me, which I am ok with, but some have taken what they said seriously. It was just a joke!
My hairdresser is delighted with the results and has been giving me much better cuts; either because my hair is responding better or she is more excited about my hair and experimenting more. Who knows, all I know is I wouldn’t give my Igrow back for double the money back, but you will need to try it on your own head to see if it is right for you and in doing so, you have nothing to lose.
