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
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.
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.
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.
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.
It is an FDA-cleared (not FDA approved, meaning the effectiveness and safety is not rigorously demonstrated.  In contrast, Minoxidil and finasteride are FDA approved ) laser hair therapy system  intended for both men and women who suffer from androgenic alopecia. The device is said to use clinical-strength laser technology in treating both hair loss and thinning hair for men and women. More specifically, it is intended for men between the age range of 18-48 (Norwooed-Hamilton Scale between Class IIa to V )and women between 18-60 years who are suffering from hair loss (Ludwig Savin Scale between Class I to II ) (see image below). The skin type IRestore may work is Fitzpatrick Skin Types  I to VI as shown below.

Low Laser Light Therapy, or LLLT, is a method of hair regrowth that uses lasers and LED lights targeted at specific wavelengths of red light (usually around 650nM) to target skin cells and hair follicles, and energize them, boosting their metabolic rate and helping you regrow hair.  You should typically undertake these treatments at a frequency of 2-3 sessions per 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.
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.

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.

I would of gave my igrow 5 stars but the little adjustable rubble nodules that sit on the head & that the helmet is attached to really hurt my head. By the time I'm half way through my session my head starts to really hurt where those nodules sit. I do wish it were more comfortable but results are already so good I'll deal with the discomfort in exchange for thicker, healthier hair! :)

In one trial, conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, over 100 hundred men and women were given laser combs which they used for 26 weeks. In most cases, those using the laser comb – and not a placebo as was given to other patients – had a noticeable improvement in the thickness and fullness of their hair. Moreover, the improvements weren’t dependent on gender or age.

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.
To help put a dent in these numbers, the in-home iGrow Hair Growth System is clinically proven to restore hair quality and help grow fuller, thicker hair in weeks, regardless whether you’re a man or a woman. All you have to do is place the iGrow “helmet” on your head, select one of five pre-programmed session, and sit back and relax as the device’s LED and laser lights help stimulate cellular activity within the follicle (more about this next).
A few more words about Photo-Biostimulation (in a slightly more scientific way): it increases something known as ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which increases the production of keratin – a protein that makes up most of your hair’s structure. ATP and keratin are responsible for stimulating cells such as hair follicles while prompting intracellular energy transfer.

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.
The iGrow Laser Helmet is a specially designed contraption that is like nothing you will have ever seen on the market before. This hi-tech hair re-growth system is like nothing else currently on the market, and truthfully looks and sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie set one hundred years into the future. The device has been in development for a number of years now, but it is now fully approved by the FDA, and it has gathered a great deal of impressive igrow reviews as of late, as well. The helmet is pretty expensive as of this writing, coming in at around $700 but experts say that overtime, you will actually save money as the need for hair rejuvenation products and treatments will no longer be required.
The iRestore Laser Hair Growth System is clinically proven to treat hair loss for both men and women. Low-level laser therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and clinically proven way to stimulate hair follicles to grow thicker and fuller hair without negative side effects. This powerful medical device uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat balding, thinning hair and receding hairline.
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.
The helmet contains 51 medical-grade lasers and red LED lights that emit at a wavelength of 650nm. All you need to do is wear it for 25 minutes every other day. You can do other activities while you wait for the session to finish. iRestore says it usually takes 12 to 24 weeks to see a reduction in hair loss. Then you’ll see thicker hair within 5 to 6 months.
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 iRestore system claims to be able to promote hair growth in men ages 18-48 and women ages 18-60 who have androgenic alopecia. For men, this is usually referred to as male pattern baldness which is classified on the Norwood-Hamilton scale. The iRestore system claims to help men who fall in the Class IIa to V range and in the Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to VI range.
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)
“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 iGrow Advantage– Leverage a Patent-Pending combination of built in Laser and LEDs. iGrow Revolutionizes hair Rejuvenation. Some products use one or the other, but iGrow uses both. The result: a more effective low level light therapy (LLLT) The lasers produce a wavelength of 655 to 670 nanometers that have been shown to increase cellular activity within the follicles.

The hair rejuvenation solution for the 21st century. Kill the comb over and check out the Apira Science's iGrow Helmet, a stylish new wearable device that packs 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights. The iGrow Helmet is a hair-growing helmet designed to mimic the effects clinical hair lasers. The iGrow Helmet includes a remote that has been programmed for both men and women, and it has a built-in set of headphones that you can use with your own iPod or MP3 player - we can't imagine why you'd ever want to take it off. The headphones should make marathon hair regrowth sessions easier to sit through.


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. 

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…

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.
We’ve already discussed how to use a laser comb, but it’s worth mentioning again that laser combing isn’t like regular hair combing in that you only need a few passes over your scalp to do the job right. Instead, you’ll need to keep combing with a laser comb for up to 10 minutes, at least three times a week. Have you ever combed your hair for several minutes? It’s not as easy as it sounds, although you may build up your arm muscles in the process.
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. Please follow The Gadgeteer or subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss my review. (12/11)

​Ingesting unhealthy pills to counter the symptoms might seem like a solution for hair loss. Others might consider the painful and overly expensive hair implants surgery. Toupees are also flooding the market. But what if I told you that there is a cheaper and safer way to rejuvenate your hair growth and thickness? Behold the new iGrow hair growth system

The Warranty does not cover mechanical or cosmetic damage resulting from accident, misuse, neglect, normal wear and tear, or improper voltage use. Warranty repairs or replacements must be arranged directly through the manufacturer. Please visit iGrow for further warranty assistance.
I am a 50 year old male. My hair is thinning in the usual areas, my crown and my temple. Considering how much people spend on medications and lotions to put on their in an attempt to combat hairless I don’t think the $695 is a bad price. Also if after 6 months you are not happy with the Igrow helmet you can return it for a approximately 90% refund. You do have to pay the shipping cost and the “Re certification” charge. which is probably around $200. I have seen the re certified Igrow helmets out there for around $300. So I am going to try it and see how it goes. what have I got to lose. I would be interested in hearing from other men and woman on their experiences with the product.
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).
Now as far as the product itself is concerned…I’m currently using it and I like how I can just put it on and let it do its thing. A helmet means that your hands are free to do whatever else, though you’ll have to use it while sitting down since the helmet is plug in only (which is why that guy dying on a bicycle while wearing this helmet joke comment was just plain stupid and not all that funny). The fit takes a bit of time to get used to. Also, there are these four little knobs that hold the helmet in place and keep it at a proper distance from your scalp, they’re somewhat uncomfortable at first but you get used to them. Though I am concerned that these positioning knobs prevent light from reaching the scalp in those areas. I’ve been using iGrow for 1 month, haven’t really noticed much of a difference. I’ll keep using for another 5 months. There’s a very low probability that I’ll remember to repost here in 5 months, so don’t expect any additional feedback. Good luck and try this device (or another one like it)…it only hurts the wallet, not you.
HOW IT WORKS: Our engineers have calibrated the lasers to the optimal wavelength (650nm red light) proven to promote hair growth. The 51 medical-grade lasers and LEDs radiate light energy that is absorbed by the hair follicles to enhance cell metabolism rate and reactivate follicles to stimulate hair growth. Although it can be used alone, physicians often recommend laser therapy to be used along with other solutions (such as minoxidil, finasteride, shampoo or supplements) to accelerate growth and get maximum benefits.
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.

I did receive an email from the PR folks for iRestore saying that they could send me their special shampoo and hair serum to try too. I declined that offer because I want to review the iRestore by itself. They also said that it might take as long as 24 weeks to notice positive changes. That differs from the information that came with the iRestore which says it takes 16 weeks. Right now I’m about halfway through the 16 week period. I’ll have another update in a couple weeks.

Lightweight, comfortable, easy to use, and proven effective, this iRestore LLLT treatment dome received plenty of positive feedback from satisfied men and women. The only real drawback is the inability to set the length of treatment. Overall, the device is reasonably priced and can provide results in a matter of weeks. We gave this model a rating of five stars. 

It is an FDA-cleared (not FDA approved, meaning the effectiveness and safety is not rigorously demonstrated.  In contrast, Minoxidil and finasteride are FDA approved ) laser hair therapy system  intended for both men and women who suffer from androgenic alopecia.

The skin type IRestore may work is Fitzpatrick Skin Types  I to VI as shown below.
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.
You operate the device with a handheld controller that starts and stops the sessions, and which includes a small, backlit display with a timer. The LEDs automatically turn off after 25 minutes, although the controller emits a beep as a reminder. You power the unit with an AC adapter that plugs into an electrical outlet (you don’t have to worry about constantly re-charging batteries).

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.
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 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.
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.

Although it can be used alone, physicians often recommend laser therapy to be used along with other solutions (such as minoxidil, finasteride, shampoo or supplements) to accelerate growth and get maximum benefits.
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. Please follow The Gadgeteer or subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss my review. (12/11)

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!
“I have been using the iGrow for more or less 7 months and I have seen substantial hair growth all over my head. I am so excited, and I have been telling my close friends about the success I have had with the iGrow. I have tried many hair re-growth treatments without any growth at all. Thanks for developing the iGrow… I actually bought another one for my son!” —Julian— Phoenix, Arizona
Dr. Rassman of BaldingBlog, a pioneer in the hair transplantation field, says that in his experience, lasers do not grow hair (6). He notes that he even offered laser treatment for free in his office at one point, as an experiment, and he saw no results. Dr. Jae Pak, Rassman’s associate at New Hair, shares Rassman’s opinion and also believes laser therapy is an ineffective option.
