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.
Bought this almost 2 years ago, paid over $600 for the unit. Use of it has never resulted in any more hair on my head. It was a total waste of money, and the price was certainly not insignificant. Additionally, the unit just died on me and will not even turn on anymore....but that doesn't matter since it never helped anyway. I am totally disgusted that Amazon would even list this item on their site. This makes me think twice about the quality of the items Amazon allows to be marketed for them. Oh by the way, now I see that the price has been dropped significantly. Guess people are getting wise to this gimmick product and not buying it.

Update @ 9 months: So, it's normal now for people who haven't seen me to comment on my hair, usually asking if I've dyed it darker or just mentioning that it looks thicker. The hairs on my balding patch are fully mature now and seems to be as thick as other hairs although there are fewer of them there. I grew my hair out several inches and at times was sporting some serious volume. My hair is more noticeable in the shower drain, and I experienced one week of excess shedding. But the shedding was temporary and now everything is going well, I'm not worried about hair loss at all. I can feel that my hair is healthy, and I'm enjoying the ability to grow it longer and try different styles.

• 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.
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.
After purchasing the iGrow system right here on amazon, I have used the product without lapse for 7 straight months now, about 3 times a week. I took a picture of my head before starting and took one today...unfortunately there is no difference :/ Which means it didn't get worse either, but I was hoping for at least some coverage. I am also using a special thickening shampoo and a DHT blocker, so the fact that my hair isn't worse cannot be directly attributable to the iGrow system. It is very easy to use but it's pricey (also disappointed I am now seeing it for $100 less, I paid $595) and it also makes my head sore towards the end of each session (from the rubber suctions inside the device).
Not satisfied with accepting my hair loss situation as my new normal I immediately went into research mode. I came across a variety of potentially dangerous and messy topical medications and hair transplants. I wasn’t into either of those options. And just when I was beginning to get discouraged, the universe magically provided a potential solution—iGrow, an at-home, FDA-cleared, Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) device that is used to help stimulate hair growth for both men and women. After testing out the unit out for six months I was amazed by the results and wanted to share this option with anyone out there suffering from hair loss looking for a viable solution.
I couldn’t be happier with my results from using both the iGrow and iDerma. My hairline has grown back while the overall health of my hair has improved and I feel as though I am on my way back to having the hair I had a few months before all of the stress. As for my skin, it looks younger, less ruddy, and with iDerma's hands free feature that treats the whole face in 8 minutes it is much faster and more convenient then my old hand held device. Despite being a tough business Braile tells me, “Its hearing success stories like yours and others where our technology makes a positive impact on peoples quality of life that keeps us going”.
I’ve tried a few different things with the hopes that it might make my hair recover. There’s Biotin, which I’m still taking once a day. I don’t think it’s really doing anything. I’ve tried some hair vitamins called Hairfluence for a couple months. They didn’t really help either. The latest test has been Biotin shampoo which I’ve been using for a month or so without any noticeable effects. So when I was offered the chance, I was totally game to try the iRestore.
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.

With built in head phones that can connect to your MP3 player, iPod or anything else with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, you don’t even have to do anything – you could just sit back and relax if you like! Treatment sessions are completely automatic and take just 20-25 minutes. With just two or three sessions required per week, you can see results in as little as 12 weeks and your hair will only continue to improve in strength and thickness from there on in. 

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. 

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.

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.

Thank you for your feedback. The 4 spacing columns with silicone cushion "caps" help suspend the light canopy over the scalp to allow for the best coverage and absorption of the light waves. Most find wearing the iGrow quite comfortable, but naturally everyone is a little different. If your scalp is more sensitive, I've heard from some that placing a cotton ball between the silicone cushion and the scalp helps them.


I was not joking but I am very happy with the Igrow and with my results. I still have superfine hair and that has not changed, but I have much more hair and more body. I have found that I get used to this new hair and forget that I need to maintain it, forgetting to use the Igrow once in awhile, until I notice I’m losing body. When I notice, I go back to using it and it has more life. The Igrow increases the blood flow to the follicles. More blood flow, more body, more hair growth.

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.


Using a non-invasive hair treatment, this laser cap formula does not have any competition. This laser cap works to handle all problems which leads to thinning or loss of hair. A variety of health problems could cause thinning or loss of hair. These things include: stress, the type of diet, lifestyle, androgenic alopecia, aging and a host of other things.

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!
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.
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.
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😃 

Many hair laser products out there use either lasers or LEDs but the revolutionary iGrow uses both. This results in a more effective Low Level Light Therapy (or LLLT). The high-quality lasers produce a wavelength of 655 nano-meters that has been shown to increase cellular activity and energise the cells in your scalp, causing an uptake in the natural function of the hair follicle. The LEDs have a broader light energy to help provide complete scalp coverage.

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.

The iGrow is getting our Risky Try rating based mostly on their 6 month money back guarantee, and the fine print of how it works. While it’s unclear whether or not this works for the majority of those that try it, it’s something that you can try out for an extended period of time. The company is pretty confident that after using it as directed for 6 months you won’t be sending it back. With this price point you’re not going to forget to return it if you’re not happy with it.
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.
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 manufacturer claims the device works to regrow hair in people diagnosed with androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. Men and women with androgenetic alopecia have hair loss in a well-defined pattern that usually begins above the temples. Over a period of several months or years, the hairline will recede, forming the characteristic M shape. The hair can also thin at the crown, slowly progressing to complete or partial baldness.

A variety of health problems could cause thinning or loss of hair. These things include: stress, the type of diet, lifestyle, androgenic alopecia, aging and a host of other things.
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.

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.
Another good reason for giving low-level laser treatments a try is that they’re very safe – hence the FDA “clearance” for many of them. Users report very few laser comb side effects, if any, and most are very minor, such as an itchy scalp or mild irritation. Despite some claims, LLLT therapy does not burn your scalp. Besides, many LLLT devices come with automatic shut-offs when your session has finished.

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.

Though it is unclear as to how often you had used the iGrow or if those uses were consistant, we are sorry to hear you didn't have the hoped-for results. All viable hair loss treatments require at least 4-6 months to begin seeing improvement, and the iGrow is no exception. Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is a clinically proven treatment for genetic hair loss, but naturally results can vary from person to person depending on many factors such as extent of hair loss, genetics and just the differences between individuals. However, as in all things, their will always be some types of hair loss it cannot help. Thank you for your feedback and giving the iGrow a try.
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.
