The hands free helmet utilizes 51-light emitting diodes (a combination of LED and laser) for full-scalp coverage and delivers red light at the wavelength of 650-670 nanometers, which has been clinically proven to stimulate hair growth. The recommended treatment protocol for men and women is 20-25 minutes every other day for the first four to six months after which point the device can be used once or twice a week for maintenance.
the first thing I noticed is that my white hair (I am now 77 years old), turned darker. Fist just slightly grey then almost black around the edges. My hair grows faster, looks healthier and get comments about my full head of hair all the time. I have a small bald spot on the back of my head that has had only a slight improvement and some new hair, but not radical.
There are some studies that have indicated its safety and effectiveness. It is even equipped with headphones and an MP3 or iPod interface so you can enjoy music and relax while the device is working to promote hair growth. It is specifically designed for treating Androgenetic Alopecia (genetic-based hair thinning/loss). It energizes the cellular activity within the hair follicle promoting the proliferation of healthy, thick and full hair.
Today, I am going to review iRestore laser hair growth system, one of the many brands that belong to low level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair loss treatment.  There are some clinical studies indicating LLLT can work to halt or even reverse hair loss in early stage. It is a much less popular treatment type than the mainstream treatment like Minoxidil and finasteride. The clinical studies were done in a much smaller scale than minoxidil and finasteride. The effectiveness of LLLT is generally believed to be not as good as  Minoxidil and finasteride.  Nonetheless, it warrants some examination. 
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.

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.

• 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.
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.
The helmet, when worn appropriately on the head and switched on, emits a red light, which is then absorbed by your cells. They claim that the light energy absorbed stimulates a rapid change in the metabolism rate and ATP production of the cells. This causes the hair follicles that have long been dormant to start producing hair again. Aside from the promise of regrowth of your hair, it is said also to strengthens and builds up the hair follicle so that your existing hair looks a lot thicker.  Results is said to be visible in 3 to 6 months
I purchased the iGrow in June of 2017, have used it 2-3 times a week as directed, every single week since June 2017. It is now March of 2018, and I can't say there is even the slightest of difference in my hair density. If anything, I might have lost more since I purchased the device, but I think it's due to the progression of hair loss and nothing to do with the device, although I still believe the iGrow helmet hasn't made any difference.
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.

First, let me start by saying I bought my IGrow system back in 2011. I used it diligently 3xs a week and WOW. It really changed the thickness and texture of my individual strands. It also helped dormant follicles come back and my thinning spots went away. Truly helped bring my self confidence back in my life. Once my hair got strong I did extensions for awhile and then I was pregnant so my hair was awesome for a few years! Now that my baby is 3yrs old and I'm 45 my hair has gotten thin again. So I brought out my IGrow out of the closet to get my hair back. The only problem was it kept shorting out. It wouldn't stay on. So I called the company hoping for a replacement box that I would of had no problem paying for. Since it had been over 6 years since I bought it. Well, I gotta say this company probably has the best customer service I have ever experienced. First, I spoke to Jonathan the owner a funny very personable guy who told me to call back on the next business day to get things sorted. When I did and explained to Melody what it was doing she told me, it was a wire in the helmut. So she told me to send back my 6 yr old helmut and she would replace it with a new one for FREE! I was astounded! This company and their people truly stand behind their products and their just amazing and kind. If I still lived in California I would beg for a job. If more companies in the world were ran like this, it would be a much better place. Thank you again IGROW for not only a great product, but for you😃
In recent clinical trials, the iGrow Laser Hair Growth System showed increased hair counts in women by 35 percent after 16 weeks of treatment (every other day for 25 minutes), and nearly doubled total hair growth 10 weeks faster than regular hand-held laser combs and brushes. These results were consistent with a previous award-winning iGrow study showing similar hair growth improvements in males.
Hi Julie – I just wanted to say thank you for your review. I have been diagnosed with chronic telogen effluvium almost 2 years ago and experience considerable daily shedding with pretty much no regrowth noticeable. I’m still contemplating purchasing this crazy device at this point but your ongoing review has helped add some perspective. Looking forward to the next update.
Why am I reviewing the iRestore system? Because I’ve been dealing with thin hair since my cancer adventure 5 years ago. All my body hair fell out 2 weeks after my first chemo treatment. I was given what the nurses called the “Red Devil” (Adriamycin) chemotherapy drug. It actually came in a huge syringe and looked just like red Kool-aid. I had four treatments of that particular chemo and then I had four more treatments of another type of chemo that my Doc said shouldn’t make my hair fall out again, but it did.

I have been using iRestore for 6 weeks. I am seeing a modest amount of improvement at this point. I am not sure if it is new hair or just healthier existing hair. It is too early to expect significant growth or true "restoration". It is about on par with what my expectations were (my assumption going in was that it would be 4-5 months before I would notice any real improvement). I will report back again then.
I've been using the i-Grow for just under 4 weeks now and the jury is still out. I am noticing some re-growth around my hairline but the new hair is very fine. I take this as a promising sign of things to come and better results than I've seen with Rogaine and similar products. Hoping that the new hair will start to grow in thicker. Have read a lot of good things about the system so based on this and my initial results, I am optimistic! Will provide future updates...
iGrow uses a combination of proven science and technological achievements. It is the product of decades of research and development. It uses the same technology as the ones used by professional hair loss medical experts without the very high cost of such on-going treatments. LLLT works to invigorate the cells within so that the hair will grow naturally healthy. It uses the scientifically-proven wavelength of 655 nanometers.

Hello Destiny! Thank you for your review. We truly appreciate the time you took to share your experience and are so thrilled to hear you are enjoying the benefits from the easy-to-use, hands-free, iGrow! Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) affects everyone differently, and at different rates, especially when there can be so many variables in producing results. The good news is, the growth has only just begun! Continued use (even after the initial 6 months) will bring more healthy hair over time; however, it is not a ‘cure’ and requires maintenance (once a week or so) when you are satisfied with the results. Regarding the rubber nodule comfort; the 25 minute thereapies can be done thorughout the day, so use the 'Pause' feature and take it off after about 10 minutes, take a break for a few minutes (or so) to relieve any pressure on your head, and then come back and press the 'Pause' button again to continuse though another segment of time. Sometimes it's just a matter of your body becoming comfortable with a new habit. Thank you again for taking that leap of faith and giving the iGrow a try. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns with your iGrow, we are always happy to assist!


Since my chemo treatments were only 5 years ago, that’s what I’m thinking has caused my thinned hair. That and hormones. But I’m giving the iRestore a try. I told the PR person who offered these details and they didn’t decline the offer, so we’ll see if it helps. I’m 25% into the initial 16-week treatment. I’ll be posting my first update to the review next week.

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.


Knowing that the medical device business is challenging to break into I wanted to know what the biggest hurdle has been for the Apira Science team. “When you pioneer a new technology you face severe challenges in credibility and consumer acceptance. You have the dual challenge of convincing both consumers as well as their physicians, who are normally skeptical of the efficacy of these devices and the credibility of the company. We have found that the “science sells,” but in today’s ever-changing environment traditional sources of retail are less prevalent, and digital assets and specialists are required to help navigate these changing waters”, states Braile.
Unlike traditional drug treatments for hair-loss, the iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System is not only highly-effective, but it’s also affordable too. Traditional drug treatments for hair-loss include Minoxidil, which costs up to £350 a year, and needs to be taken consistently for treatment and results to be effective and enduring. The iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System is a one-off purchase, and can be seen as an investment in the future of your hair’s health, with no ongoing costs and provides everything you need to grow strong, healthy and vibrant hair.

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.
Yes! Because LLLT only focuses on stimulating your scalp and is non-invasive, there are no negative side effects when combined with other topical hair restoration programs. It is totally safe when combined with other treatments, such as Minoxidil-based products Rogaine or Finasteride-based products such as Propecia, according to two studies by Advanced Hair Clinics.
In recent clinical trials, the iGrow Laser Hair Growth System showed increased hair counts in women by 35 percent after 16 weeks of treatment (every other day for 25 minutes), and nearly doubled total hair growth 10 weeks faster than regular hand-held laser combs and brushes. These results were consistent with a previous award-winning iGrow study showing similar hair growth improvements in males.
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.
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. 
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.

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 groundbreaking iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation Treatment is the first to offer combination light therapy in a hair rejuvenation system. The patented design combines 21 Lasers and 30 LEDs into a single, HANDS-FREE, portable device for full scalp maximum effectiveness. The exclusive iGrow handset allows you to choose from 5 different treatment settings for a customized treatment. The innovative iGrow design incorporates an iPod/MP3 connector so you can listen to your favorite music during your convenient 20 minute treatment 2 to 3 times a week. After 10 to 12 weeks of regular use (as directed) you can expect to see thicker, fuller, healthier hair. Continued use yields even better results.

So to sum it all up, there are A LOT of variables that may have an influence on whether or not this product (or others like it) will work for you. The research out there (once again look through pubmed.com) shows that this kind of therapy undoubtedly works…so bottom line: yes, it does work. Will it work for you? Possibly. But there’s also a chance that it will not work for you. You have to try it out on your own.
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.

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. 

Since my chemo treatments were only 5 years ago, that’s what I’m thinking has caused my thinned hair. That and hormones. But I’m giving the iRestore a try. I told the PR person who offered these details and they didn’t decline the offer, so we’ll see if it helps. I’m 25% into the initial 16-week treatment. I’ll be posting my first update to the review next week.
So far I’ve done 9 treatments and am not noticing any new hair, but I plan to keep doing the treatments every other day for the full 16 weeks and will continue adding photos and updates every few weeks. I’m pretty skeptical that it will help me, but I’m happy to take one for the gadget team and give it a try! So stay tuned and keep checking back for updates.

I too am skeptical about this igrow helmet as well as some of these other mechanical products that claim to work “miracles”. But being a woman with no hair on my head,no eyebrows and no top eye lid lashes; I am willing to take the risk and try one of these helmets or caps, providing I can save enough money to get one. I had a surgical procedure in October 2013 where my right ovary was removed along with a mass which was thought to be cancer. The mass was not cancerous. By Dec. 2013 I was almost completly bald and as of today I still have no hair. A few months ago my eyebrows started falling out and then my eye lashes and the hair on my arms and legs too are gone. I have been told by a doctor that my hair loss is from Alopecia. I think it’s thyroid and hormones. I have decided I am going to research and do what ever I can to get my hair back as I am sick of looking at a bald me.The thing that gets me though,people look at a man who is balding or with no hair, it’s no big deal. But when they see a woman with no hair or a head scarf with no visible hair showing from under it well then that’s a whole different story. Some people stare,some turn away when I see them looking at me.Kids just glare as they don’t know what to think. I know they have questions that are not being asked. It doesn’t always bother me.But some days I do get upset,or angry when I see myself in the mirror and/or feel that the doctors just want to go by lab tests and not by what I feel or say. I don’t think this website publishes your email,but if someone wants to contact me about some good results with these helmets go for it. I am on facebook under : and my name is Rita. Boyles. Happy Hair Hunting!


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...
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.

“A form of alternative medicine that uses low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Other names include low-power laser, soft laser, cold laser, biostimulation laser, therapeutic laser, and laser acupuncture. Whereas high-power lasers used in laser medicine destroy or cut tissue, low-power lasers are claimed to stimulate it and to encourage the cells to function.”


the first thing I noticed is that my white hair (I am now 77 years old), turned darker. Fist just slightly grey then almost black around the edges.
