Well it is ok that Happy had a laugh at my expense because I am very happy! It has been six weeks now and I can now wear hats and still have a hair style after I take them off. I no longer see a balding patch at the crown of my head because the hair that I have has body and life to cover and is thicker. The once widow’s peak is filling in and my hairdresser, that didn’t believe my excited texts, has now seen the results herself. When I arrived for a haircut she said “I’ll get my magnifying glass.” I told her she wouldn’t need it and when she looked at it she said, “wow, you’re right!” You can see the new hairs all over my head. At this point I still have fine hair and of course the new ones are super fine, but my hair is no longer limp and it has life and body that I haven’t seen since my twenties. The clumps of hair at the front that I was seeing almost right away is thicker in diameter and about an inch long now.
Bought the Igrow a year ago but learned alot about it after buying it. The product might be effective preventing hair loss but definitely alot better products out there. Igrow uses a mix of laser and led. LED does nothing for you, its a scam them make to more money. What helps is the laser or diode. The more diodes the better for hair. Hope you guys wont make the same mistake I did.
As the name implies, laser helmets consist of an outer shell (made of lightweight material) that houses the lasers and red lights. A typical laser helmet session lasts for up to 30 minutes, although usually not on a daily basis. Laser helmets cover a much wider area of your head and scalp than combs – or, at least what a single pass of a comb covers.
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”.
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.
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.
The only thing that can trip you up here is if you get it and don’t use it as much as you’re supposed to. If after 6 months you don’t like it and end up returning it, the restocking fee will be about $120, so worst case scenario you’re going to pay $20 a month to try it out and see what you think. When you look at it this way, and compare it to the cost of trying out other products, it doesn’t sound like too big a risk. Plus if it works you’ve got a one-off payment for a hair growth solution that you can use daily with nothing more to pay.
• 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 am using it right now but too early to tell. I am following the schedule of sessions diligently and have the thinner hair on top with small but noticeable hair follicles and am not on any drugs. Just regular male pattern hair thinning. So I feel I am the perfect candidate who they say this will work for. I feel six months is enough time to see if this is snake oil fake and a scam or the real deal. Believe me, I will tell you which this is. I am on my second week of usage. I look forward to letting everyone know how I make out and can make an honest judgement.
“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
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.
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.
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 Theradome LH80 device is cordless (rechargeable batteries are included) to provide greater convenience during use, and comes with a simple power switch that turns it on. The lightweight plastic helmet comes with foam pads that allow it to fit heads of different sizes. There’s also a sensor that detects whether you’ve positioned the helmet on your head properly.
When you’re losing your hair you’ll look for anything that works. There are many different treatment options, and each company has a different approach as to how to get your hair loss to stop and even better to get it growing again. Some use creams, lotions, and serums. Others use pills to supply the body with the nutrients it needs to grow hair again. A relatively new approach is using laser combs. The iGrow is trying to take the laser comb technology and make it easier to use.
