Home laser Helmet
I'm thinking about purchasing a home laser helmet (covers the whole head) and wondered if anyone has used one or could recommend a good one? My hair isn't too bad yet but it is slowly beginning to recede at the front and thin a little towards the crowd... so could do with some laser treatment all over just to strengthen the hair again. I used the hairmax laser comb but its quite time consuming.
Any help would be appreciated!

I recommend the iGROW to my patients. I have had some good feedback and never any complaints. Remember the lasers work for some patients and not for others. The real risk is the $$$.

Laser tends to not work on most in my honest opinion. Save your money.
I cannot agree with Mr. Spex's assesment of low level laser therapy. I use the laser comb myself and have done so for over four years. I have seen first hand that it does in fact help treat hair loss. I have also seen first hand that it has improved my sister's hair. I have been in contact with many other women who also use the laser comb and they too feel that it has improved their hair.
I have no experience with laser hoods or helmets and I also have no desire to buy another laser device since I already have a device that is working for me. However, I trust Dr. Charles' opinion. If my laser comb ever stops working, I will probably consider the iGrow as a replacement.
How many of these patients used no other "proven" "technology"?

The iGROW was the *only* technology they used?
At this time and for the foreseeable future no one is going to be able to convince me that "natural" remedies do anything meaningful in any way to treat hereditary hair loss.

It wouldn't be right if I didn't give an honest opinion so take this with a pinch of salt, Waste Of Money
Have you yourself actually tried low level laser therapy?

A laser helmet would at least give full coverage of the head, with minimal time spent.
From what I've read and know I think laser is a suitable option for someone like myself who is only beginning to recede.
