I have allergies and sinus issues 24/7 365 days a year. My nose is almost always a little sniffly. TMI? Sorry. But I know I'm not the only person who has these types of issues. While several people on the team have reviewed air purifiers, the Airdog X5 is the first one I've tried out and the first one I'll be reviewing. Why have I waited so long? I didn't want to deal with replacing (and buying) HEPA filters. The Airdog has no consumables. Stay tuned for my review coming soon.

I tried the Igrow Helmet for one full year. I followed the directions and wore the helmet religiously and did exactly as directed. No change in my hair at all. If this thing worked, why are people still having hair transplants and why is rogaine still on the market. Rogaine actually did work for me after applying it non-stop twice a day after four months. However, the hassle and greasy hair was too much to bear and I quit using it. The Igrow Helmet is a waste of money. My recommendation: Just get a short hair cut like the Transporter guy or shave your head and forget it. Or Just wear a hat. It is much cheaper!
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.
Jennifer Ahdout, MD, a dermatologist in Beverly Hills, contends that the laser comb is a “safe treatment with some mild proven benefit,” which sounds pretty accurate to me. She also states that while it is not a “miraculous solution,” is is an important part of her arsenal in treating pattern hair loss (7). Her opinion on laser therapy is shared, by and large, by many dermatologists and hair restoration surgeons.

The unique design of the iGrow helmet allows for an equivalent output to most in-office hair lasers and provides full scalp coverage during treatment for optimal hair growth results.

I didn’t get that upset about my hair falling out due to the chemo. The first day it started happening, I called the person who cut my hair and she came to the house and shaved it all off. It was really pretty liberating. But unfortunately, it didn’t grow back as thick and full as it had been before all the chemo and another drug I was on for about 4 years.
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.
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...
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.
I used the products faithfully for almost nine months. To my disappointment, hair kept falling out. I purchased the helmet, shampoo, serum, and pills. I requested for a refund based on their guarantee, and they stated that I had missed the deadline for this request by 15 days. WOW, really? Scam company run by a bunch of scumbags. Don't waste your money on this bogus product!
Where do I begin? My hair has had such a positive reaction to this device, I almost cannot believe what I am witnessing. My hair is thicker and is growing in areas, my crown and my receding front hair line, for the first time in over a decade. I don't know what else to say to you, if you are thinking about buying this device, but are hesitant. Just buy it. You will NOT regret it.
iGrow mimics the same LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) technology used by hair clinics around the world to encourage hair to appear thicker, fuller and healthier. The revolutionary iGrow harnesses the energizing and nourishing effects of cold laser technology and LED light to dilate tiny blood vessels and increase the blood supply to the hair follicle. Through the principles of "photobiotherapy" the lights progressively improve the quality, strength and thickness of your hair in an average of 12-16 weeks. More dramatic results can be seen after a 4-6 months. Thousands of men and women worldwide have discovered the power of laser therapy treatments for the improvement in the appearance of their hair.
iRestore has been clinically studied by doctors and been proven to promote hair regrowth for men and women in a recent 2017 research study. In this clinical study, an astonishing 100% of active male and female users saw visible hair growth with an average increase of 43.23% in hair count (Scroll down to the "RELATED VIDEO SHORTS" section below to learn more)

Overall, as the igrow helmet is a relatively new product, the current number of igrow laser reviews available are few and far between. With that being said however, igrow do offer a 6 month money back guarantee, and there is also the added bonus of the reviews that are available online, being largely positive. If you’ve tried countless hair-loss products and treatments over the years, with little-to-no success, the iGrow is most certainly worth a go.
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.

Treatments for hair growth like procedures (implants, etc.) can cost several thousand dollars and you have to repeat the procedure every few months or years. The iGrow Hair Growth System is affordable at $695 considering the high cost of the most effective treatments on the market. There are no recurring or repetitive costs, so the device is economically advantageous.
Reviewers seem to always think that their personal case applies to everyone and make definitive statements like “don’t waste your money” or “it works”. Each user will respond differently to laser light therapy for hair loss. Hair growth response will depend on the type of hair loss, skin tone, skin thickness, and dosage. Certain types of hair loss will not respond to laser light therapy, no matter what…this product and ones like it will not work for some people. If it doesn’t work for you, then you may fall within this category and there’s no point in telling others that it doesn’t work and not to waste money. These types of products may also be less effective in people with a darker skin tone. Melanin in skin absorbs light. Likewise, melanin in skin will absorb the light coming from these products. The darker you are, the more melanin you have, and the more absorption of light…those with darker skin tone may want to increase dosage (speak with a trichologist first). About dosage, go to pubmed.com and find articles that reviewed laser light therapy dosage. You’ll find that there is a very broad range of length of time and frequency of application…some articles say 2-3 times a week while others say up to 40 times a week. Once again, we’re all different and dosage with respect to time and frequency will depend on the individual. A user must also consider how penetration of light into the skin has an influence on efficacy. Penetration of light will depend on the level of intensity of light, the thickness of a user’s skin, and the distance of the light from the skin, (as well as the melanin concentration as stated above). The iGrow helmet has its own standard of light intensity, while other devices may have a different intensity of light. The intensity and distance of light to a user’s scalp are probably the most important factors that will determine penetration of light into the skin. Optimal penetration needs to occur for this type of therapy to work. I’m assuming iGrow has figured out the optimal distance and intensity of light for best results.
When you're using this, it's very, very simple. You simply power this on, simply hit this little power button, and then you will touch one of the heads, either male or female. I'm going to go ahead and hit the male, which is going to turn this on for 25 minutes. The lights are illuminated. There is a static beam and there is a pulsing beam going on in this. These are going to provide different levels of stimulation. Additionally, when you're done, it simply turns off, which is a very nice feature of this. It is wired, so obviously you need to be near a power outlet.
