I purchased this product because there is research on NCBI that indicates it's efficacy. I noticed immediately, that the light, which is a mixture of laser and LED , had a warming effect on my scalp. After the first use I noticed my scalp burned a little. Within a week, I noticed my hair felt thicker but no visible improvements to the thinning areas. I have always had thin hair, but I am a male, 33 y/o and started to notice early stages of male pattern baldness about 2 years ago. It had reached the point where it was impossible to hide. The hairs were getting smaller and becoming transparent. I was very disheartened, and so in an act of faith (in science), after doing a little research, I decided to buy this device. I am using this product in conjunction with Rogain and Bosley Revive, which I was using before I started the iRestore for years. I saw this as the last hope for my hair. I can't take Propecia because it gave me unbearable side effects. This device has no side effects, so it's safe.
A few safety tips before you use the iRestore system, or any helmet-like hair growth device, for that matter. For one, never stare directly into the laser light, because doing so can damage your eyes. Also, make sure that your hair is dry before use, and keep the device away from water and wet areas. Finally, keep it out of reach of pets and children.
HOW IT WORKS: Our engineers have calibrated the lasers to the optimal wavelength (650nm red light) proven to promote hair growth. The 51 medical-grade lasers and LEDs radiate light energy that is absorbed by the hair follicles to enhance cell metabolism rate and reactivate follicles to stimulate hair growth. Although it can be used alone, physicians often recommend laser therapy to be used along with other solutions (such as minoxidil, finasteride, shampoo or supplements) to accelerate growth and get maximum benefits.
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.

To help put a dent in these numbers, the in-home iGrow Hair Growth System is clinically proven to restore hair quality and help grow fuller, thicker hair in weeks, regardless whether you’re a man or a woman. All you have to do is place the iGrow “helmet” on your head, select one of five pre-programmed session, and sit back and relax as the device’s LED and laser lights help stimulate cellular activity within the follicle (more about this next).
Since the light excites hair growth on a cellular level users need a viable hair follicle to see results, which means that not everyone is good candidate for iGrow. The device works effectively in women with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes I to IV and with Ludwig Baldness Scale Classifications of I to II, and also in men with androgenetic alopecia who have Norwood Hamilton Classifications of IIa to V. “People who are shiny bald whose hair follicles are damaged and have scarred over won’t experience results. This is another reason to start the treatment as early as possible”, states Braile.
Considering its price which isn’t cheap, you may need to really think a thousand times. However, if you deem it suitable for you and if you think it will help address your hair loss problem, then, the manufacturer will gladly help you make your purchase once your purchase this product as you can always communicate with them for assistance after your purchase.
Our verdict? Which method of laser treatment you choose takes a few things into consideration – price, convenience and, of course, effectiveness. You’ll spend more for a laser helmet (or cap) but you get a more powerful treatment. A comb treatment only takes several minutes and many are cordless to provide supreme convenience. But if more power truly leads to better results – as many experts suggest – then a laser helmet provides a better overall treatment option, if you’re willing to spend the money.
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.
Unlike other hair laser treatments, iGrow uses a combination of LED and laser technology, at a clinically proven wavelength of 655 nano-meters. The unique design of the iGrow helmet is specially contoured to cover your entire scalp for the most effective treatment possible in the shortest amount of time. The hands-free design is much more convenient than hair-loss laser combs and the distribution of the low-level laser and LED lights inside the iGrow helmet ensures that the treatment targets exactly the parts of your scalp that need it most every time.

It is an FDA-cleared laser hair therapy system intended for both men and women who suffer from androgenic alopecia. Please be advised the the device is FDA-clered, not FDA-approved, meaning the effectiveness and safety is not rigorously demonstrated (In contrast, Minoxidil and finasteride are FDA approved). The device is said to use clinical-strength laser technology in treating both hair loss and thinning hair for men and women. More specifically, it is intended for men between the age range of 18-48 (Norwooed-Hamilton Scale between Class IIa to V )and women between 18-60 years who are suffering from hair loss (Ludwig Savin Scale between Class I to II ) (see image below). The skin type IRestore may work is Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to VI as shown below.
Update @ 4 months: I've started growing my hair out. I've done a little trimming and comb-over is working well now. The hair at the bald patch is noticeably thicker. Also, the hair on the top has become much thicker to the point where I can no longer feel my scalp with my fingers. Overall I just feel like my hair is way thicker and healthier. I had some trouble lugging it around with me over the holidays, so I bought a handheld device for when I'm on vacation, and I can honestly appreciate how convenient it is to have the helmet. I hope this thing never breaks.
