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.

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.


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.

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.
Yes, I am extremely happy and wish that I had found this years ago. I don’t have any connection with the manufacturer, QVC or even with this site. I found out about it from my hairdresser who had heard about it from a client. So I looked it up online and I figured that I had nothing to lose since I bought it on QVC and they are willing to give you your money back after six months trial. I found this site when looking up reviews on it. Now after just six weeks I know I don’t want my money back and I can’t wait to see the results when the six months are up.
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”.
This hair regrowth system has regrown all my hair to former thickness and beauty. I was seeing new hair growth in the first 6 weeks and it just kept coming! I used this product with Rogaine, (but I had been using rogaine with out the results that this provided. My hair NO LONGER has fallen out. I have been using this for 2+ years now. I waited to do a review for the best results. I recommend this to everyone. My daughter used this too and got the same results as I did, without the rogaine. Great product. Will use this forever!

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

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.
I'd be more than happy to provide you with a replacement pair of ear pads. The material of our pads have slightly changed, so the replacements you receive should not give you that issue. If you are not comfortable leaving your email or phone number, please feel free to contact me at 561-465-7000. If it is more convenient for you, you may email customer.service@igrowlaser.com, instead. If you don't mind, however, please feel free to reply to this message with your contact information, and I will reach out to you. Whatever is convenient for you.
We're very proud of both our clinical results and track record and work very hard to provide excellent customer service. Please contact us at support@igrowlaser.com or by calling and asking for me personally at (866) 982-7472. I will be happy to see about arranging your iGrow return, answer any questions and even discuss other options that may help you.
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.

I started using igrow in Feb 2015. I went to a hair restoration place. I used hair support and eufora thickening system. It took about 5 months to see results. I still getting new hair. I almost have all my hair back. I had a bald spot in the middle and sides of hair.It takes time to see results. It really works.The shampoos I used really speeded up my results. Thanks I grow 

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.
I didn’t get that upset about my hair falling out due to the chemo. The first day it started happening, I called the person who cut my hair and she came to the house and shaved it all off. It was really pretty liberating. But unfortunately, it didn’t grow back as thick and full as it had been before all the chemo and another drug I was on for about 4 years.

Since my chemo treatments were only 5 years ago, that’s what I’m thinking has caused my thinned hair. That and hormones. But I’m giving the iRestore a try. I told the PR person who offered these details and they didn’t decline the offer, so we’ll see if it helps. I’m 25% into the initial 16-week treatment. I’ll be posting my first update to the review next week.
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.

So far I’ve done 9 treatments and am not noticing any new hair, but I plan to keep doing the treatments every other day for the full 16 weeks and will continue adding photos and updates every few weeks. I’m pretty skeptical that it will help me, but I’m happy to take one for the gadget team and give it a try! So stay tuned and keep checking back for updates.
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.
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".
Further the manufacturer puts a claim that the product makes the hair of the user to look rather fuller and thicker making them glow and appear much healthier than before. This is attributed to the fact that there is enhanced cellular activity when using this product that makes the air follicles to receive much energy, nutrients and growth hormones for growth within the adipose tissues of the skin.
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.

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.
The iGrow® Laser Hair Growth System works via the principle of photo-bio stimulation, a process by which nutrient rich laser energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This process causes a revitalization of the individual follicle, and a general strengthening of the hair. The device uses a total of 51 red and laser lights to emit the maximum amount of energy necessary to stimulate the hair follicles and effectively cause re-growth.

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).

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).

• 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.

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.


I saw the device on Facebook and was ready to buy, you’ve saved me from thinking this will definitely work. I wonder if females with telegen effluvium (like me) have tried the device and if it has worked. My dermatologist has a laser they use for psoriasis that she offered me for my hair loss. $75 a go, so I thought buying a device might be a better way to go.
​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.
The second one appeared in the peer-review medical journal, The International Journal of Trichology in August 2014. The article provides photographic evidence of the efficacy of the HairMax LaserComb used on subjects treated for at least 9 months for drugs and were either no longer responding or were intolerant of these treatments. The HairMax LaserComb was added to treatments with either with minoxidil and/or finasteride regimens, or used in place of these treatment. Almost 90% of patients treated with drugs and the HairMax LaserComb had significant results, and 100% of those patients treated with the device in place of the drugs, showed significant results.

My whole life I've had extremely long, long hair that reaches all the way down to my hips & it has always been extremely thick. My hair has My mom also had thick, thick, LONG hair, all the way down to her calfs, yes her calfs, her whole life. To sum things up, all women in my family including my 2 girls have long thick hair & so loosing my hair has been extremely tramatic! There is NO history of hairloss or thinning of any kind in my family so why am I loosing my hair? I have gone to several doctors, had blood work done, hormones checked etc & still no answers & no solutions. I've tried everything I could get my hands on, shampoos, vitamins, creams etc & nothing has worked!
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.
I have been using igrow for more than a year and while I do not see any improvement I also do not see my hair getting any worse. I believe that the use of the igrow is helping me maintain my my current hair. I only wish that I started using the unit earlier when I had more hair. My only issue is that my ear pads are beginning to wear out. I do not see replacement parts or recommend alternative replacement pads on the igrow site so that I can replace them.
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.
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.
Today, I am going to review iRestore laser hair growth system, one of the many brands that belong to low level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair loss treatment.  There are some clinical studies indicating LLLT can work to halt or even reverse hair loss in early stage. It is a much less popular treatment type than the mainstream treatment like Minoxidil and finasteride. The clinical studies were done in a much smaller scale than minoxidil and finasteride. The effectiveness of LLLT is generally believed to be not as good as  Minoxidil and finasteride.  Nonetheless, it warrants some examination. 
“Plants convert sunlight into energy, which they use to grow. This is similar to the process of photobiomodulation. Certain wavelengths of light whether laser or LED, are absorbed into the outer layer of skin where your hair follicles reside. The light creates ATP (cellular energy), which strengthens both the cells and the surrounding area creating a perfect scenario for hair growth. Follicles expand, hair gets thicker, and new hairs grow from the now open hair follicles”, Braile tells me of how LLLT works to stimulate hair growth.

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.
Reduces hair loss: A good number of people with chronic hair loss bought this device. Some had prior complains of fistfuls of hair falling off whenever they washed or combed. After a few weeks of use, their hair was no longer falling off. Others complained of prior rapid hair loss. The device was able to slow down this to nil. This made some a little skeptical and were left asking “does iGrow work?” When they got rid of the device however, their rapid hair loss returned. Give it time
This hair regrowth system has regrown all my hair to former thickness and beauty. I was seeing new hair growth in the first 6 weeks and it just kept coming! I used this product with Rogaine, (but I had been using rogaine with out the results that this provided. My hair NO LONGER has fallen out. I have been using this for 2+ years now. I waited to do a review for the best results. I recommend this to everyone. My daughter used this too and got the same results as I did, without the rogaine. Great product. Will use this forever!

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.
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).

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.
Treatments for hair growth like procedures (implants, etc.) can cost several thousand dollars and you have to repeat the procedure every few months or years. The iGrow Hair Growth System is affordable at $695 considering the high cost of the most effective treatments on the market. There are no recurring or repetitive costs, so the device is economically advantageous.
I didn’t get that upset about my hair falling out due to the chemo. The first day it started happening, I called the person who cut my hair and she came to the house and shaved it all off. It was really pretty liberating. But unfortunately, it didn’t grow back as thick and full as it had been before all the chemo and another drug I was on for about 4 years.

1) There have been no head to head studies (no pun intended) comparing the HairMax LaserComb to any other devices. However, we believe that the HairMax is a better designed device, in that it has a patented hair parting teeth mechanism built into the device. Since hair blocks light from reaching the scalp, we believe that the HairMax in parting the hair as it is used, delivers optimal energy, unlike ‘top of the hair’ devices such as the helmets and hoods.
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.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been used for hair rejuvenation for quite some time now. What is LLLT? I will make it pretty simple, I assume you have heard of laser hair removal right? This is essentially the same thing but with the opposite effect. Certain wavelengths of light can be used to remove hair, and others can be used to rejuvenate hair. The practice of exposing cold laser light to your scalp with the goal of bio-stimulation in mind has been proven effective for decades now. So does that mean that this FDA cleared iGrow Laser Helmet is going to be the solution to hair loss problems? Read along and well find out together.
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.

This is one of the newer options. If you’re an aesthetic type of person like I am, and the idea of wearing a ball cap appeals to you more than wearing a goofy-looking helmet, this may be worth checking out. It doesn’t have the review history or track record of the aforementioned products, but it does appear to be a legitimate and functional product. The Capillus82 features 82 laser diodes, a rechargeable battery back, carrying case, and a 1-year limited warranty. They claim their product has a 95% success rate.
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.

iGrow mimics the same LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) technology used by hair clinics around the world to encourage hair to appear thicker, fuller and healthier. The revolutionary iGrow harnesses the energizing and nourishing effects of cold laser technology and LED light to dilate tiny blood vessels and increase the blood supply to the hair follicle. Through the principles of "photobiotherapy" the lights progressively improve the quality, strength and thickness of your hair in an average of 12-16 weeks. More dramatic results can be seen after a 4-6 months. Thousands of men and women worldwide have discovered the power of laser therapy treatments for the improvement in the appearance of their hair.
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.
I have been using igrow for more than a year and while I do not see any improvement I also do not see my hair getting any worse. I believe that the use of the igrow is helping me maintain my my current hair. I only wish that I started using the unit earlier when I had more hair. My only issue is that my ear pads are beginning to wear out. I do not see replacement parts or recommend alternative replacement pads on the igrow site so that I can replace them.
It is an FDA-cleared laser hair therapy system  intended for both men and women who suffer from androgenic alopecia. Please be advised the the device is FDA-clered, not FDA-approved, meaning the effectiveness and safety is not rigorously demonstrated (In contrast, Minoxidil and finasteride are FDA approved).  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.
I've used this protocol in conjunction with all of our products very, very successfully, and it is the most FDA-approved laser, meaning iGrow has 2 FDA clearances, one for men and one for women, based upon their own research. This is totally unique to every other at-home device that is a helmet. This is based upon their own clinical research, their own evidence that it works, and quite frankly after using it in practice for nearly 5 years now, I know it works. It's what I recommend continuously.
If you decide to try the iRestore today, there are only two possible outcomes. First outcome – you try it and it doesn’t work for you. After your 6-month trial, you send it back at no costs and receive a full refund. You don’t lose a penny and you move on. But consider the alternative – what if it actually works for you and stops your hair thinning, reverses your receding hairline and helps you take back control of your hair? We think that’s a future worth taking a leap of faith for. Do you?
Donna the true facts are that if you have hair follicles that still have a live hair bulb in them then the hair can improve. If your hair follicles are dead there is no improving them. The fact is that if you buy on QVC they allow you to use the Igrow for 6 months and if in that time your are unsatisfied with your results they will give you a full refund. Therefore you have nothing to lose. If you like the results keep it and if you don’t, get your money back. It can’t be more simple. HMS Happy was joking at my expense. He or she was mocking me, which I am ok with, but some have taken what they said seriously. It was just a joke!
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. 
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.
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.
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.
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.

Our verdict? Which method of laser treatment you choose takes a few things into consideration – price, convenience and, of course, effectiveness. You’ll spend more for a laser helmet (or cap) but you get a more powerful treatment. A comb treatment only takes several minutes and many are cordless to provide supreme convenience. But if more power truly leads to better results – as many experts suggest – then a laser helmet provides a better overall treatment option, if you’re willing to spend the money.
