What is IGrow?
Igrow is a new hair loss device that is supposed to regrow your hair. It also offers to stop your hair loss. It works by using laser therapy to treat your hair loss and restore hair growth to your scalp. More specific the IGrow uses laser comb technology and is offered in a user-friendly approach.
How Does It Work?
It is a helmet device you put on your head that uses laser technology. A session for the iGrow are twenty-five minute sessions every other day. It operates similar to other laser therapy products. With LED diodes and lasers so it can stimulate and regrow hair at the scalp. It also offers adjustable sizes so that the IGrow helmet can fit to most heads, which can be used for more than just one person. It operates on low-level laser treatment (LLLT) and does not use rechargeable batteries, as the device must be plugged in while you’re using the product at all times.
Why Are You Losing Your Hair?
Everyone will lose some of their hair in their lifetime. Whether that be after your done brushing your hair and notice some in the brush. For some maybe having a shower and noticing some on top of your bath or shower drain. We have all been there. Now, what if it’s starting to be an unusual amount? Well, then this is where it can be various “X” factors. Let’s talk about these underlining issues as we walk through some of the reasons you could be having some hair loss.
- Genetic male baldness
- Hormonal changes/imbalances
- Too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism)
- Too little thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism)
- Physical stress
- Psychological / mental stress
- High blood pressure
- Anxiety/ depression
- Too high of vitamin intake
- Too low of vitamin intake
- Liver disease
- It offers a 60-day money-back guarantee ( 1 year manufactures warranty)
- Plugs into a standard outlet
- Doesn’t need to be used every single day
- Will shut down after your 25-minute treatment
- Uses LEDs instead of medical-grade laser lights
- FDA 510k approved rather than FDA approved which is different
- Has to be a twenty-five-minute session with no interruptions
- Only offers 25 laser diodes compared to other similar products( Theradome/ HairMax)
Other Types of Treatments
One of the first choices for hair loss therapy is a scalp massage. Cheap and no side effects. It’s done by applying gentle pressure to your scalp or head area with your fingertips. This causes and encourages blood flow, which in return can promote hair growth.
What are essential oils and what will they do for my hair? Essential oils are derived from certain plants. They were first used in aromatherapy and different varieties of alternative medicine. These oils are now being used for hair loss therapy as well. They use the essential oils sometimes more than one oil type to massage into your scalp to trigger hair growth. There is no concrete evidence yet to back up essential oils as a successful treatment for baldness. It is still too early to make that decision yet, as it is too early to have facts to back up if it is working out not.
This method works just like it sounds. The shampoo will work in two ways. The shampoo will give you volume. Second, it also contains vitamins and amino acids that will generate a healthier scalp. Which in return produces more hair growth. You can buy these shampoos at your local drug stores and grocery stores. You can also get your doctor or health care provider to give you a prescription for a stronger version.
This is a type of hair growth supplement. Know by many as “Rogaine’. Minoxidil is an FDA approved product that’s available over the counter. You apply this product directly to your scalp once or twice a day for improved results. You may see thicker hair in those bald spots or small amounts of hair growth. It can take weeks to months to see results and you have to follow the instructions carefully. There have been mixed reviews on this product as some claim it is great and others not so much. There’s no guarantee it will work, but it’s an option for some males and females.
This treatment is normally done by a professional dermatologist or another skin specialist. The FDA recently cleared the way for some products to be used at home. The laser therapy treatment is meant to help re-grow your hair as well as making it thicker. The results vary from weeks to months. The biggest problem with laser therapy is the cost. Some treatments at home are hundreds to thousands of dollars. Your health care provider may cover a portion or a percentage. It is still is a pretty expensive option.
IGrow Customer Reviews
One user says:
I’ve used this for over a year now and absolutely nothing. It certainly has not decreased the amount of hair loss as it’s been getting worse.
Another user says:
I’ve used this for 1 week only BUT ITS GIVING ME HORRIBLE HEADACHES AND I NEVER GET HEADACHES IT HURT ON LEFT SIDE SHOOTING PAINS . I read they do cause headaches SCARY
Really works, but have to be a loyal user!
Not sure yet:
Product as described, too early for me to determine if there is tangible results.
Although some customers seem to be very disappointed in the IGrow product. After looking at various reviews it’s a split down the middle. Some love it and some don’t. Out of 155 reviews on Amazon, it has received a 3.4 star rating out of five. With 46% giving it a five star rating.
Give it a try
It wouldn’t hurt to give it a try for yourself if this is an option you are looking into. The IGrow offers a 60-day money-back guarantee as well as a 1 year manufactures warranty. While the treatments and causes for hair loss and hair growth can vary.
Getting a medical opinion
It is very important to talk and make an appointment with your doctor or physician. Your doctor or health care provider can detect any outstanding issues or problems you may be experiencing. Having said that it is always best to leave it up to a professional. They will be able to recommend related treatments that would be your best option for helping you rectify the problem or root cause. If you are experiencing hair loss, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with your health care provider or doctor right away.
If you are looking for something a little more traditional and easier to use you may want to consider one of the shampoos that are being promoted to help prevent hair loss.
68 Customer Reviews on “Can You Zap Hair With iGrow To Prevent Hair Loss And Thinning Hair”
After 6 months use the result is ZERO. Save your money.
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…
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.
So to sum it all up, there are A LOT of variables that may have an influence on whether or not this product (or others like it) will work for you. The research out there (once again look through pubmed.com) shows that this kind of therapy undoubtedly works…so bottom line: yes, it does work. Will it work for you? Possibly. But there’s also a chance that it will not work for you. You have to try it out on your own.
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.
I paid 700.00 dollar year ago this garbage doesn’t work so please do don’t waste your money on irestore shet
They are reselling the product through 3rd party resellers as referbished …
Nothing wrong with that as long as the vender tells you.
I am a female and I had it for six months and stuck to the recommended setting which were for the males. It did not work whatsoever.
i want my money back.
You bold guys are hilarious :.)
hi i read you review of the lase cap can you tell me what exactly you ordered and where from QVC? did you use any other product.. Was is the I grow laser cap Please contact me I am getting desperate as what to do Pauline
Just saw this on the Canadian Shopping Channel and they claimed a roughly 37% average increased hair growth. The pitchman slipped a quick statement that could easily go unnoticed to the effect that it was a select group of people who were tested. This may work but only in very few cases. One example could be people who are vitamin D deficient which can result in hair loss and could be helped with exposure to the proper ultraviolet B (UVB) light.
Readers: I am a bold man, but not shiny bold. The guy selling the product on TV said that this was not a product for shiny heads. It seems I would likely qualify. I tried many treatments before. Most of them were outright scams.You can read all of it on my blog .
Based on the comments on this site, I see mixed results and it seems, women had more luck with it.
My understanding is that it will stimulate the follicles, if they are still there, to rejuvenate and become thicker, which is still a benefit. I seriously doubt that it would add to your hair coverage. Apparently it brings more blood to them. Does that mean the blood capillaries were blocked? By cholesterol?
Why not clean up the cholesterol, then?
Lori, who is the biggest supporter of this product on this site said that she failed to use it for a couple of days and immediately noticed decline in growth. That is a nonsense. Lori, please don’t try to help us in this way.
I’d like to try this product. This is what I’d like to know;
1. Why isn’t Prince Williams using this product? Why is Wayne Rooney of Manchester United going for annual replants instead of watching his football matches at night with this laser helmet on his head?
2. Is there a voltage adapter with it suitable for using it in 120V, and 220V areas.
3. Why wasn’t this built like a bike helmet, so I can use it on my bike to give me flashing lights when i bike at night or day, so it is not a total waste of money if it doesn’t produce hair.
Hope someone will help me out to get more hair.
Oh Graeme: How heartbreaking. But how kind of you to let us know. I know some think your pst may be a joke, but I know that can not be true.. It would be too risky to do something so vile. No telling what fate/Karma would do to you or someone you love. RIP Vincent.
This product is the real deal, if you are not looking for miracles. I have been using it for over two years with quite good results.
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.
Overall it has stopped my hair loss, improved the healthy look of my hair,
you have to use it regularly if you want best results,
I can’t seem to draw a conclusion.. buy or not ?? Some say yes others say no! I would love to see before and after pictures of clinical studies.. if anyone can point me in the right direction… I would appreciate it.
Reading this comment thread was worth it simply for your comment. Nice work!
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 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.
thank you but you can’t sleep with it on. It has a timer. It doesn’t stay on endlessly.
I had big hopes when I bought my igrow, I was aware that there was no guarantee that it would work but I thought it was worth a shot…Unfortunately it didn’t work for me!
Used it every 2/3 days for 6 months but didn’t see any results, I called the customer service to return it and the lady I spoke to was very nice, she offered me an extra 6 months money back guarantee to give it a try for a whole year. I am now at 16 months and still nothing..
I’m not saying that it’s a bad product or that it never works, it just didn’t pay out in my case.
hi vincent the big question did it work, help, etc. the igrow laser hair growth system ? thanks vincent . eric
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!
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.
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.
I hope it works for you!!
Jan wear it longer. I do not own an iGrow however I am considering purchasing. And have read ALL the reviews. There are a few people that stated they wore it longer than recommended. A few even slept in it & they saw results. I personally wouldn’t sleep with it on my head EVERY night but I’m most certainly going to seep with it on.
Would like to get the true facts on this product too wishy washy???
I have been using the igrow for 18 weeks every other day for 25 minutes
I am not sure if it is working. I still lose tons of hair every day. I am afraid to stop it in case it is doing
something I can’t see yet. Will continue and see.
You obviously work for the company. Nothing makes hair grow overnight. If you look up the physiology of hair growth, this just does not happen. My concern is that you are misleading people who may be desperate and cannot really afford $500-$500 dollars for this system. Let’s see a before and after picture.
I have been using igrow for 11 weeks so far and no change. I will continue and see what happens
Good for you Lori! I just started using it tonight and hope it helps. I don’t care who laughs at me. They laughed when I started using Latisse also and my lashes are now super long, thick and dark. I took one pic every Sunday so I could see if it was making a difference and it did. Planning on doing the same with this also.
I saw that show, they also gave her a treatment session or something for one year, she should show before and after photos, I even wrote to the show and asked about her to come back, but no response
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.
Hair today, gone tomorrow.
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.
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.
So laugh on Happy, no one can take my joy on this one!
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.
I have been using the Igrow helmet for just a week and I am amazed at the difference already. My hairdresser told me about the system when she last colored my hair. I went home and ordered it immediately so my color was only one week old when I started the therapy.
I am amazed to see that all across the front of my hair I have a row of 1/2 inch long gray hair and 1/2 inch of grown out roots throughout the top of my head. This is on two week old color!!
Beyond that my hair has much more body and fullness, and even when I wake up in the morning my hair is still holding the style from the day before. Normally I struggle with baby fine, very limp and very, very thin hair that shows my scalp all through my hair on top and a balding spot on the crown.
It seems impossible, but my son has witnessed these fast results and is just as amazed. I am using nothing but the Igrow helmet, no other products and use it every other day as recommended. I can hardly wait to see the results after six months!
Vincent unfortunately died in a car accident. As a friend I have been assigned the duty in his Will to communicate his findings. Witnesses confirm it ceased working completely after the helmet device slipped over his eyes while cycling to work causing him to veer in front of a truck whereupon he was immediately crushed. End of hair problem.
I bought the igrow 7 months ago. I was also skeptical but figured it was worth a shot since it was relatively easy to use and didn’t have any negative side effects I could find.
I took a picture each month to figure out if I should return it or not. After 2-3 months the thinner areas on top of my head did seem fuller. After 6 months I have seen a noticeable improvement and others agree after seeing the pictures. The 6 month one definitely has more hair and this is the only product I have been using.
I’m keeping mine for sure and will continue to use it. The growth on the top seems fuller than in the front. But at least the front hasn’t thinned out or receded even if its not getting thicker.
How is the outcome so far? Any results?
So, its 18 months later since your original post about iGrow. What was your verdict on the helmet?
I am disappointed about what you guys are talking because I just started using it today.
this is regarding your review about using igrow laser, i have seen your views last year and u promised to share its results after 6 months whether it really makes regrowth of hair or not, so i will be kind and very educative if you share the results now for everyone out there with hairfall and bald problems
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.
I used the igrow for 4 months and did not see any results. Not even in my amount of hair loss…I just returned it yesterday., it was a waste of money and time.
I just ordered this on QVC…they have 5 payments My husband has thinning hair on top and I’m hoping this will help..They also have a 6 month return policy with no restocking charge….if your wanting to try it this is the best way. Try it for at least the 4 months that they say is the time it takes to see if it will work. If not, return it and you’ll be out nothing.
I have been using igrow for3 mo ths and noticed nothing different. No change in hairfall, thinning, or anything. Im thinking about returning it today.
how often you are using it ? i bought the same an year ago. using it till date but nothing happened so far.
LED stands for “light-emitting diode,” not “laser-emitting diode.”
Update? Wondering how your hair is doing in early June!
mix of laser and LED? what helps is the laser, not the diode? FYI LED stands for laser emitting diode…its a laser
I have been using the IGrow helmet for the last two years and it is worked wonders for me. I was experiencing a LOT of hair loss. I had lost just about all my self esteem and everything else.
I still have a long way to go, but Igrow has changed my mind.. Literally. It has given me my life back and it has made my self esteem soar.
Give it a try. I tell everyone about it.
I’m a horrible candidate for any hair re-growth system because I am a 51 year old female who has had moderate hair loss since the age of 18.
I have been using the iGrow for 4 weeks. After the first use, I had no hair loss in the shower. Usually I get quite a few strands stuck to my fingers. And that promising effect has continued for the entire 4 weeks I’ve been using it.
After two weeks I could tell that something good was happening. The new growth on my existing hair was coming out thicker and stronger. And now after 4 weeks I can see new hairs sprouting.
I’m truly shocked that this thing is working. When I received it, I was bummed to see that it is made like a cheap plastic toy. But now I see that I am paying for the technology, not the quality of the plastic. It’s SUPER easy to use right out of the box.
If you have any questions for me about the product, do not hesitate to ask. I will update my experience in 2 weeks which will be my 6 week mark.
VINCENT!!!!! RIP. He died testing iGrow for us all.
On Feb 5th The Doctors show– http://www.recapo.com/the-doctors/the-doctors-products/doctors-igrow-helmet-regrows-thinning-hair/
A women’s opinion of it.
There was lady on The Drs.. today that has been using it for 18 months and her hair is all back in. Feb. 5th The Drs.. Show, you can see it there.
She said she noticed little hair growths after about a month.
I used the laser hair machine under the guidance of a trichologist for 1 yr, 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. I paid $1,500.00 for that one year.
I have thinning hair and no balding pattern.
There was no NEW hair growth, no thickening of my hair. Nothing at all. As a matter of fact, I had hair LOSS.
IGROW uses the same technology.
Save your money folks.
Ive been using it for roughly 6 months now! I havent noticed much improvement, however my hair was very thin, so i reckon alot of my hair follices were dead and unable to grow! I did notice some minor light hairs growing so i think there is something there working! It is most likely a good product to have if you are in the early stages of mpb
I am Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services at Lexington International, LLC. This post is not for commercial purposes, but is to reply to Laura in her post of January 23, 2015, to explain to her why we believe the HairMax is the best laser phototherapy device on the market for treating hair loss:
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.
2) There have been 6 double-blind clinical studies comparing the HairMax LaserComb to a sham device that have all consistently proven the efficacy and and safety of the device. Further, there have been 6 FDA 510(k) Clearances granted for the HairMax LaserComb. No other device on the market can provide anywhere the number of studies that have proven its efficacy, nor as many FDA reviews., Finally, as listed on this post, no other device has had as many papers published on the results of the clinical trials of their devices in peer review journals, as has the HairMax Laser Comb.
3) There are 3 models available that start at $295.00, so that they fit every ones” pocket book, unlike the ‘top of the hair’ devices which cost considerably more. Each has been proven to work.
In conclusion, the HairMax LaserComb which weights about 1/3 the weight of a hair dryer, is lightweight, easy, and convenient to use, just 3 times a week for 8 – 15 minutes depending on the model. This combined with all the reasons to use the HairMax listed above, makes it undoubtedly the best laser phototherapy device on the market to use.
Can you tell me what laser products are better than the Igrow please
Can you tell me what laser products are better than the Igrow please
I am Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services at Lexington International, LLC, manufacturers of the HairMax LaserComb. This post is NOT for commercial purposes, but is to notify your readers of 2 landmark clinical papers that were published in April 2014, both authored by leaders in the treatment of hair disorders.
The first one appeared in the peer-review medical journal, The American Journal of Clinical Dermatology in April 2014. The article provides complete information on 4 studies with 225 subjects, which conclusively proved the efficacy and safety of the HairMax LaserComb in treating male and female pattern hair loss.
This article is entitled:
Efficacy and Safety of a Low-level Laser Device in the Treatment of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss: A Multicenter, Randomized, Sham Device-controlled, Double-blind Study
(Am J Clin Dermatol. 2014 Apr;15(2):115-27)
These were the results found in this study: “In four randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled trials of male and female pattern hair loss, we detected a statistically significant increase in terminal hair density after 26 weeks of lasercomb treatment compared with sham treatment.”
Below is a link to the complete article:
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.
This article is entitled:
Use of Low-Level Laser Therapy as Monotherapy or Concomitant Therapy for Male and Female Androgenetic Alopecia
(Int J Trichology. 2014 Apr;6(2):45-9)
Below is a link to this study:
These 2 articles provide conclusive proof of the efficacy and safety of the HairMax LaserComb for the treatment of certain classes of hereditary hair loss in both men and women.

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.
Since it has been few months, i was wondering if you had any improvement with your hair loss.
Could you tell us what is your hair situation?
We are so excited to buy this helmet.
Vincent, how have your results been using igrow since January? It’s been about 10 months. Hoping you can give feedback.
I just started with the igrow. I have hair loss due to taking accutane(isotretinoin). It started after taking it and has gotten progressively worse. After being off for two years I continue to loose a lot of hair. I am near balding on top my head with a receded hairline. Hair loss doesn’t run in my family until late 40’s and early 50’s. Whether my hair loss is just drug induced, or maybe accutane just sped up my genetic hair loss I was destined to have at a much later time, I will bookmark this site and try to update you guys if I have any results at a later time.
I was wondering if you had any luck with your iGrow. Thanks!
Since it’s been over 4 months since you posted, I was wondering if you could give an update on whether you’ve seen improvement from using the iGrow? Any information would be great, thank you and hope it’s working out!
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.
Yours truly, Vincent
Finally, a website that tells the pros and cons! I’ve spent an hr researching this helmet for hair growth and most of them are a waste of time with people just being annoying. Thanks for your input. I may try it.
The restocking fee at $120 for a product that costs $700 is not bad. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. But then you’ve got to wonder, if you could make a garbage product for $30 and rent it out for six months for $120, could you make money? The answer is a definitive yes. The 6 month money back guarantee is nothing to brag about because of the high restocking fee. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted, but the restocking fee makes me cringe just a bit.
