I want to say two more things and then I am gone. First, you are going to find more expensive and also cheaper machines that promise the same thing as this device. DO YOUR RESEARCH. The more expensive ones are simply that, more expensive. The cheaper ones, well, they are trash. You'll find that the cheap ones are just l.e.d. bulbs and no laser. This type of device will do nothing but aggravate you and waste your time and money. Second thing, and this one you should really take to heart. This device alone, will only do so much. Think of this device as the sun. Think of your hair as the grass. Think of your scalp as the dirt. Your body, more importantly, what you put in it, feeds your scalp. My point is,...diet, namely yours. I'll use myself as an example. I don't smoke. I eat very healthy. I work out. I take the appropriate vitamins and minerals. I clean my scalp with a DHT blocker shampoo. I use a honey based conditioner. I do also use an over the counter minoxidil.

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!
2) There have been 6 double-blind clinical studies comparing the HairMax LaserComb to a sham device that have all consistently proven the efficacy and and safety of the device. Further, there have been 6 FDA 510(k) Clearances granted for the HairMax LaserComb. No other device on the market can provide anywhere the number of studies that have proven its efficacy, nor as many FDA reviews., Finally, as listed on this post, no other device has had as many papers published on the results of the clinical trials of their devices in peer review journals, as has the HairMax Laser Comb.

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.


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.

Sorry Lori but you’ve tipped your hand. Lori’s timeline, thats a long time after her initial testimony to have the urge to keep coming back here to defend this product. Notice how her hairstylist is soooooo excited to cut her new hair…. I mean common. So does she also work for QVC cause shes quoting their no risk you got nothing to lose like a 3am infomercial. And yeah caught that one too, one day of non use and she could tell her hair suffered from that. Sorry Lori waaaaay toooo many one sided persuasive arguments. Be vigil people, when reading reviews a tip is to ignore positive reviews and focus on the negatives. Generally negative reviews are real, see what the complaints are focused towards and if the product is what it claims there will be minimal complaints. Hope that helps. Lori lol, i wonder what her, or more likely his real name is…
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.
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.

If your hair loss is mild and your main goal is to stop further hair loss, you can try lower level laser therapy (LLLT). However, if your hair loss is in an advanced stage and you want to regrow some of your loss hair, it is better to use FDA approved (instead of FDA cleared) products like Minoxidil and/or finasteride.  If you do decide to try LLLT treatment, you can also consider other similar device like Theradome and Capillus that have higher density of laser diodes and therefore can potentially work more efficiently. 
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.
Braile continues, “iGrow is for men and women with mild to moderate genetic hair loss. It is not designed for individuals who are bald and have had extreme hair loss for a prolonged time. While these individuals may get results, they will likely not be satisfied with those results. The iGrow has also had preliminary results showing it may speed up the rate of hair regrowth in women who have undergone chemotherapy”. In clinical trials, women who used the device for 25 minutes per day, every other day, experienced an average a 37 percent increase in hair counts after 16 weeks, whereas men who followed the same protocol experienced on average a 35 percent increase.
The iGrow Laser Helmet is packed with 21 laser diodes and 30 red LED diodes. The LEDs are stated to burn somewhere between the 650-670 nanometer range while the Laser diodes burn are advertised to burn at 655 nanometers. At first glance, 51 lights shining on your head sounds like a decent deal considering most laser clinics machines only have about 107 diodes. Something struck me as odd though, why use LED diodes if they have not been proven. Even though they are burning at the roughly the same wavelength they lack the power and spread that a diffused laser diode would. Besides, the science is Low Level LASER Therapy, not LED therapy. So in essence there is really only 21 lasers that are actually proven to have an effect on your alopecia problem in my humble opinion. Scientists have tested and proven that for bio-stimulation to occur 4-6 joules of power per square inch is necessary. Some will say that closer to 2-3 joules per square inch is okay but for BEST results try to get 4-6 joules of power. I read a calculation on OverMachoGrande.com that a laser comb with 9 lasers will get you 0.5 joules of power per square inch if it is used for 400 minutes per day. Yes, you read that right, 400 minutes per day just to get a measly 0.5 joules of laser light therapy! That freaking pathetic! So a rough estimate for the iGrow laser helmet power rating would be something like 1.3 joules per square inch. That is less than laughable for my $595 dollar investment.
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".
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.

If you look further into what they’re saying, you’ll see that they want you to use this for 12 weeks in order to make a determination on whether or not it works. Their return policy gives you six months to evaluate it, but the catch is that they charge you a restocking fee on it. This means that it’s not a risk-free trial. When you look at it from their point of view, it’s not as if they can resell your iGrow helmet once you return it, so they’re likely covering their production costs this way.

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. 


HairMax uses a process called Photo-Biostimulation – which it compares to the process of photosynthesis that causes plants to grow. What it does is deliver visible, nourishing light to the scalp to stimulate hair growth, which is, of course, the main point. In simpler terms, it extends the growth phase of hair (anagen) which helps create a cycle of new hair growth, as well as density and fullness.
We love the fact that this hair laser growth machine is so easy to use. It reminds you of wearing a sports cap when you need to wear it. The only difference would be how much benefits it has to offer in hair restoration. Depending on everyone’s budget, the price can fall more toward the “expensive” side though. However, for the advantages you will get from using this hair growth laser cap, we declared this is the best hair laser growth device in 2018. Try it for yourself and let us know what do you think!

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.
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).
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.

On Amazon, the iGrow Hair Growth System had a 3.3-star rating, based on 45 customer reviews. There, common compliments cited its effectiveness for regrowing hair and increasing thickness, ease of use, and quality customer service. As might be expected, the most common complaints cited high price (more next), ineffective results, and short return windows.
You’d basically be a guinea pig for this product, since there isn’t enough third party feedback on whether this works or not. It might be a better offer if they let you break up the payments into installments, or offer a trial period where you pay a smaller up front cost of around $100 and then pay the balance if you like it after 60 days. But the way they have this set up puts all of the risk on you, even with their guarantee in place. Anytime we see that we think that the company isn’t very confident in their product. We like it better when there is some risk placed on the business so they have a vested interest in bringing a working product to market.

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.
This is one of the most widely recommended laser helmets on the market, with good to excellent reviews. It features 51 medical-grade lasers, lightweight design, and it’s FDA cleared. According to the company’s own 2017 study, 100% of users saw a visible improvement in hair growth after 4 months; 43.23% was the average increase in hair count. Current cost is around $600.
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.
