In all honesty, we don’t know how well lasers work for hair rejuvenation. If you’re sold on the technology, however, you can now have lasers shooting light over your head all day with the iGrow, a scalp-replenishing, laser-loaded helmet.
Created by Apira Science, the headwear is billed as “the first hands-free, laser hair rejuvenation system for home use.” No more trips to the clinic to go under those machines — you can now walk around freely while getting your scalp treated to a low level laser therapy.
The iGrow claims to effectively rejuvenate shedding and thinning hair using an assembly of 21 laser diodes and 30 LED lights. These combined 51 light sources should allow full coverage for the entire scalp the whole time you have the helmet on, making it many times more convenient than alternative solutions like laser combs. It also comes with a pre-programmed wired remote and built-in headphones for listening to music while you get your head doused in waves of light.
Output from the wearable device is said to be equivalent to those you will receive from in-office clinical hair lasers, all without having to set an appointment or drive out of the way. Using the contraption, excessive hair loss should begin to cease by the third month, with noticeably fuller hair covering your skull within 24 weeks.
Granted, the iGrow probably isn’t the kind of thing you’ll want to wear outside the house, lest have people look at you have a tinfoil hat on. For the chance of keeping hair loss at bay, though, it may be worth the occasional embarrassment. It’s available now for $695.
