A new wave of laser treatments for hair loss has come onto the market recently, promising hair growth for people who suffer from thinning hair. The problem is, how do you tell which works and which is just another expensive scam?
The iGrow laser helmet comes in at a hefty price tag of $659, and you might think to yourself that you pay for quality. This is certainly true for some hair loss treatments, but is it true for the iGrow? We decided to delve deeper.
How does the iGrow laser helmet work?
This is an FDA approved device that promises to stimulate hair follicles with low level lasers.
When worn every other day for 20 minutes for 6 months, the makers claim you will see an improvement in thinning hair.
Does the iGrow work?
Even though this is an FDA approved device, this doesn't mean that the FDA agree that it works. This only means that it has been approved as safe for use.
The biggest problem with this device, and others like it, is that it only works on thinning hair. Therefore it won't work on bald patches that many people have that goes beyond mere thinning.
the HairMax Lasercomb uses a similar mechanism of action, and we have reviewed it as an inferior product to our better alternative (which we cover below).
Is there a better alternative?
You are probably here because you are looking for a really effective treatment for hair loss.And I'm not going to disappoint you.
Har Vokse is a Norwegian product that has been clinically proven to work for both thinning hair and balding patches. In one clinical trial 90% of the participants had an average of 63.9% hair regrowth.
It comprises a supplement and a spray so you can treat hair loss from the inside and the outside.
