The recommended use for HairMax Ultima 9 is three 10-15 minute sessions per week. That seems like a lot of combing – and you may develop some nicely-toned and muscled arms in the process – but, again, it’s only for three times a week and you can do it in the convenience of your home. So, put on some music, or your favorite television show, and comb away.
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.
• 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.
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.
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.
I completely understand. It does feel different when you’re female though. I think hair is more important to women and more important to the way people feel about a woman. It’s completely acceptable for a guy to be balding, or have a buzz cut, but not so much for a woman. Case in point, I was recently shopping at Walmart and some older guy in a wheelchair made the unsolicited comment that it looked like someone had done a number on my hair. I asked him what he was talking about and he repeated his comment. I replied that I like to keep my hair very short. Then I turned away and he said “looks like a boy’s haircut to me” I just walked away without saying anything because it took me off guard and kind of embarrassed me. Of course 5 seconds later I was just pissed about it, but it was too late to make a witty comeback.

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.
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.
I have now used the igrow for 2 years. I originally used it on alternative days on the 20 minute setting. I done this for a year. I then changed to 3 times a week. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays. But on the 25 minute setting. The igrow has really halted my hair loss. My hair is also much fuller. Not sure about any regrowth? Just what you have has more chance of staying and does thicken up. I also use a volume increasing shampoo and conditioner. I always make sure my hair is fully dried before using the igrow and I never use it with any gels, mousse etc in my hair. Not sure if that would make any difference? But I like to give it the best chance of working.
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.
The iGrow came highly recommended to me from my Dermatologist. I have numerous friends that have used this product for several months, and all have seen great results. My results have been quite impressive as well. I used it. Furthermore, it gave comfort and confidence knowing the iGrow is FDA approved. I have to admit when I first saw it I thought it would be uncomfortable, but that could not be further from the truth! It is comfortable and super simple to use from day one. I also travel frequently for work and have found it very easy to take through airports and use while away from home. I would highly recommend this product to others.
Braile explains, “The differences in the degree of improvement between men and women may be a function of how genetic hair loss presents itself in men versus women. Male pattern baldness is usually located between the top of the ears and the top of the scalp, so men with androgenetic alopecia usually have receding hair lines or a completely bare area on the top of the head, making these baldness patterns difficult to hide. Women, on the other hand, usually keep their hairlines but have diffused thinning throughout the rest of the scalp. This can be far easier to conceal”.
The iGrow hands-free laser LED light therapy is a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) device. It makes use of red laser and Light Emitting Diodes (LED) to energize and stimulate cellular activity leading to an increased natural hair follicle uptake. 51 laser and LED light sources work together to stimulate hair follicles resulting in more vibrant hair.
My hairdresser is delighted with the results and has been giving me much better cuts; either because my hair is responding better or she is more excited about my hair and experimenting more. Who knows, all I know is I wouldn’t give my Igrow back for double the money back, but you will need to try it on your own head to see if it is right for you and in doing so, you have nothing to lose.
