If you’re losing hair and you’ve got nowhere to turn, it may be time to trust a helmet that shoots lasers at your scalp. It’s called the iGrow ($695) and according to CNET, it’s just been approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration.
The iGrow uses low-level light therapy in a combination of red lasers and LEDs to stimulate cell activity in the wearer’s hair follicles. The iGrow should be worn 3-4 times a week on non-consecutive days and overall, it takes around 6 months to start seeing a noticeable difference. Thankfully, the iGrow comes with built in headphones to help you pass the time.
It’s hard not to look at the helmet and think its some terrible get-rich-quick scheme, but it seems to have some research. And hey, the laser helmet won’t look as tacky as a bad toupee.
