“Plants convert sunlight into energy, which they use to grow. This is similar to the process of photobiomodulation. Certain wavelengths of light whether laser or LED, are absorbed into the outer layer of skin where your hair follicles reside. The light creates ATP (cellular energy), which strengthens both the cells and the surrounding area creating a perfect scenario for hair growth. Follicles expand, hair gets thicker, and new hairs grow from the now open hair follicles”, Braile tells me of how LLLT works to stimulate hair growth.


Today the iGrow is probably the most well recognized device in the industry. It is obviously a helmet device for hair regrowth. It operates with exactly 21 diodes and 30 LEDs. The 21 diodes is actually a good number for people who are just beginning to lose hair or individuals with dark coarse hair and those individuals who have not been losing hair for a long period of time basically. If you're losing hair for less than 5 years, you have dark coarse hair, or even a lot of sort of brown or medium brown hair, and again just beginning to lose it, this is a great device because you don't need a tremendous amount of stimulation to get hairs growing. You need the right amount of stimulation. I compare many cases to getting the right amount of energy to like hitting a baseball or hitting a golf ball. It's not more power. It's basically hitting the sweet spot and getting the optimal amount of energy to produce the result, and the iGrow is great for producing that I'd say probably about 70% of the time.
• Switch to OTC shampoo Nizoral A-D three times a week. It contains ketoconazole, an antifungal that may reduce hair loss by reducing production of testosterone in hair follicles, according to scientists at the University of British Columbia. Balding men who used a 1 percent ketoconazole shampoo two or three times a week for six months saw a 17 percent reduction in hair shedding, a Belgian study finds.
First, the iGrow design is very comfortable and convenient. A 4-column adjustable design ensures that it can fit on any sized head, giving you a perfect fit during your treatment sessions. Intelligent weight distribution and built-in headphones also give you a wonderful way to enjoy yourself during your treatment sessions. Just put on the device, turn it in, crank up your tunes, and sit back as the 51 medical-grade LEDs and lasers do their work.

To be continued: I just bought this and am giving it three stars for now because the directions are incorrect or dated. The directions tell us to use this twice a week at whatever setting desired. I'm not bald so I chose the lighter setting. However, since I had read here (THANK YOU AMAZON FOR REVIEWERS!) that someone said to use it every other day, I called IGrow to ask about the proper use.
Using the iRestore is quite straight forward. All you have to do is put it on your head, press the power button on the controller and then the start button. The helmet is made of plastic. It has a built-in clap to fit into head of different size. I found the claps are little tight to make it a little uncomfortable.  The laser and LED lights turn on and off for 25 minutes, and you’re done. The controller gives a beep at the end of the session, and the LEDs automatically turn off. It is recommended to use 2-3 times a week. One needs to continue to use the device to keep the results. 
Started using Rogaine about five years ago. It helped to keep my hair from thinning further but did not create regrowth. I started using my Igrow about five months ago. I really haven't been checking for regrowth because it takes a long time for hair to grow. I just kept using it. Went to a hairdresser last week who does not know that I've been using the Igrow. She just kept saying, baby hair, baby hair, all over baby hair! Why is so much baby hair here? Look! Look! She held up 3 inch sections of hair all over my head. So, it's working! I wouldn't think that women will be able to see hair growth until it gets some length unless they have very, short hair. Men might see it sooner. My advice. Be patient. Some reviewers say hair was re-grown in weeks or a couple of months. That was not my experience but I'm thrilled with my results.Read full review...
I’ve been using the Igrow since November 2015 and it works. I noticed less hair loss within a week. About six weeks after I started using it, I changed hairstyles and pulled back my bangs for the first time in months. When I looked in the mirror, I thought I had smudged something dark around my hairline and I tried to wipe it off. It turned out to be new hair growth along my hairline. I use the Igrow faithfully, more than is recommended actually and my thin spots have begun to noticeably fill in. I’ve recommended it to my mother, her husband and my brother, all of whom have purchased one and have experienced decreased hair loss in the last few weeks. I’ve read enough reviews to believe that maybe the Igrow does not work for everyone. I’m just glad it’s working for me. I think I paid almost $600 for it on QVC, but I don’t regret it at all. Since it can be returned, I believe it’s worth taking a chance to see if it works for you.
The treatment protocol we used in both of the iGrow clinical trials was 25 minutes every other day for 4-6 months, and once per week thereafter is usually enough to continue energizing the follicles as well as maintain what has grown thus far. There is really no harm using it more often, but since it doesn't seem to improve results the main reason people choose to do so is simply because it's easier for them to get in a "routine".
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.
Lori is right! My iGrow arrived yesterday, it was still on when I fell asleep, and my goodness I woke up this morning with the head full of hair! Not only that – it was totally blond (before it was brownish), one of those splendid platinum shades you can rarely see in ordinary falks on the street. My worry now is that it may cost me a fortune to get it cut every other day. You ought to be careful with these inventions – no wonder people who announced here to do an honest test months later disappear into thin air.
I’m a quarter of the way through the 16-week treatment window and have posted two more pictures of my hair from the last two weeks. After 15 treatments I’ve not noticed any new hair growth. However, I have noticed that I’m shedding less. How am I measuring that? Not by any scientific means. Basically, I am just looking at my pillowcase before going to bed to see if there are hairs on it from the previous night. In the past, I’ve always seen 4-5 or more hairs, but lately, I’ve only found 1 or 2 hairs. Is this evidence that the iRestore is actually working? I’m still pretty skeptical, but I’ll continue to monitor things with another update in 2 weeks.

After purchasing the iGrow system right here on amazon, I have used the product without lapse for 7 straight months now, about 3 times a week. I took a picture of my head before starting and took one today...unfortunately there is no difference :/ Which means it didn't get worse either, but I was hoping for at least some coverage. I am also using a special thickening shampoo and a DHT blocker, so the fact that my hair isn't worse cannot be directly attributable to the iGrow system. It is very easy to use but it's pricey (also disappointed I am now seeing it for $100 less, I paid $595) and it also makes my head sore towards the end of each session (from the rubber suctions inside the device).
Fortunately, there are plenty of solutions, including products such as laser combs and other systems designed to slow hair loss while promoting new growth. We’ll explore four of those products – including the iRestore Laser Hair Growth System – in this post, along with other topics, such as what to look for when buying them, and laser combs vs. laser helmets.
The iGrow® Laser Hair Growth System works via the principle of photo-bio stimulation, a process by which nutrient rich laser energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This process causes a revitalization of the individual follicle, and a general strengthening of the hair. The device uses a total of 51 red and laser lights to emit the maximum amount of energy necessary to stimulate the hair follicles and effectively cause re-growth.
On my quest to find if this iGrow Laser Helmet was the solution for me, I came across tons of other reviews of the product. First I searched message boards closely related to the subject and found a bunch of testimonials from people in the same situation I am in. The problem was, it was a really mixed consensus. Being the cynic that I am, I automatically assumed that the reviews that were raving this thing as a miracle product were left by the manufacturer or someone paid to promote the iGrow. That is what made me move to YouTube where I watched this pair of videos.
The iGrow is a standalone treatment which doesn't require anything additional to be effective. However, Apira Science does produce various products and accessories for purchase, which are sometimes offered as part of a "package" by sellers. I do wish you'd contacted us before leaving a negative review, since it sounds as though you simply bought a package that included a free bottle of shampoo alone.
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.
The restocking fee at $120 for a product that costs $700 is not bad. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. But then you’ve got to wonder, if you could make a garbage product for $30 and rent it out for six months for $120, could you make money? The answer is a definitive yes. The 6 month money back guarantee is nothing to brag about because of the high restocking fee. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted, but the restocking fee makes me cringe just a bit.

Yes, I am extremely happy and wish that I had found this years ago. I don’t have any connection with the manufacturer, QVC or even with this site. I found out about it from my hairdresser who had heard about it from a client. So I looked it up online and I figured that I had nothing to lose since I bought it on QVC and they are willing to give you your money back after six months trial. I found this site when looking up reviews on it. Now after just six weeks I know I don’t want my money back and I can’t wait to see the results when the six months are up.


Not satisfied with accepting my hair loss situation as my new normal I immediately went into research mode. I came across a variety of potentially dangerous and messy topical medications and hair transplants. I wasn’t into either of those options. And just when I was beginning to get discouraged, the universe magically provided a potential solution—iGrow, an at-home, FDA-cleared, Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) device that is used to help stimulate hair growth for both men and women. After testing out the unit out for six months I was amazed by the results and wanted to share this option with anyone out there suffering from hair loss looking for a viable solution.

Launched in 2010, iGrow was the first wearable hair growth helmet to hit the marketplace and was the first to receive FDA 501k clearance for men in 2012 with a prescription and the first device to obtain over the counter clearance for both men and women in 2014. Since its launch, iGrow has sold over 250,000 units worldwide and has medical device clearances in China, Korea, Brazil, and Canada. I recently got the opportunity to speak to Jeff Braile, President of Apira Science, the manufacturer of iGrow, to find out a little more about this technology and why it works for stimulating hair growth.
This device only has 21 lasers (and LEDs are ineffective by the way), so of course it wasn’t going to work. You’d want a device with at least 300 laser diodes, such as the “Laser Messiah” helmet, which is pretty similar to what an actual laser clinic would use. There are also other things you can do such as scalp massage/microneedling, certain topicals, essential oils etc.

Thank you for reaching out to us. It's not a known side effect of the iGrow and didn't occur in any of our studies, but it's normal for people to shed 50-100 hairs per day as part of hair's natural growth cycle. There are a very small number of people who experience a little bit more at the beginning of any hair loss treatment which is just the follicle letting go while a new hair is created. It can be alarming, but when it does happen it's minor, temporary and re-grows with the rest of the rejuvenated hair.

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.
Then I ordered my igrow! It's Been 4 wks & though I haven't seen any difference in actual hair loss, I swear my hair feels thicker!!! In only 2 wks I could start to see & feel a difference in my hair. I know it's not possible to have regrowth yet where my hair has been lost or has thinned but my hair does look & feel younger, shinier & healthier! I'm also getting little tiny new hairs growing along my hairline! :) I wish pics could be attached.

am using the igrow since on month now , i feel there is some minor improvement in my hair but i receive it without the shampoo and conditioner which supposed to be included in the offer from apirascience.com and i send several emails to them without any response so am not sure how they will act in money back program if they are not responding for such issue
Recent scientific research has confirmed Mester’s findings. In 2009, in a 26-week, randomized, double-blind study done on 110 patients, researchers concluded that the HairMax LaserComb, one of the earliest laser devices sold to treat hair loss, was an effective treatment for male pattern baldness. The LaserComb group showed significantly greater increases in hair density compared to the placebo (sham device) group (2).

Another good reason for giving low-level laser treatments a try is that they’re very safe – hence the FDA “clearance” for many of them. Users report very few laser comb side effects, if any, and most are very minor, such as an itchy scalp or mild irritation. Despite some claims, LLLT therapy does not burn your scalp. Besides, many LLLT devices come with automatic shut-offs when your session has finished.
