I'm not saying the iRestore laser hair growth system works. (I'm also not saying I need a need an iRestore laser hair growth system. For the record.) But the helmet with the red glow and hefty price tag does claim to be FDA-cleared as a treatment for hair loss and thinning hair in both men and women.
Reviews, as you might expect, are a little too positive. No one's copping to having gotten a free or discounted iRestore in exchange for their "unbiased opinion" of it, but their reports all read like Ron Popeil infomercial testimonials, which is to say fishy.
According to iRestore makers, if you wear their robot laser hat for 25 minutes 3 times a week, "you can expect to see visible improvement in as little as 12 to 24 weeks." The device uses 51 medical-grade lasers beaming at a wavelength of 650nm and power of <5mW, plus red LED light diodes to stimulate follicles. You can also use it in conjunction with other hair loss treatments, such as creams, oral medications, and prayers to God.
I don't know, dude, if it were $100 to test drive the iRestore I might be more willing to risk buying a complete waste of money. Then again, if it were only $100 I'd think there was no way it could possibly work because if someone invented a legit at-home human Chia machine there's no way they'd sell it for only $100. Then again again, iRestore says the equipment comes with a 6-month money back guarantee...less return shipping and an 18% "restocking fee." 18% of $595 is $107, so I guess in the long run if it doesn't work you can send it back having wasted around a hundred bucks.
Or you could just grow bald gracefully.
