iRestore sponsored this iRestore Laser Hair System 1-Year Review post.
August 2020 Update: In July, after 28 months of use, the iRestore laser hair system died. We are not sure if it’s the helmet or the battery pack that died, but the helmet will not turn on.
Drugstore Divas did reach out to iRestore with no response. We originally received the system for review, but spent hundreds of our own dollars on products for 16 months after our review period was over. It is hard for us to recommend spending over $650 on a product that dies after just over two years of use.
Original review follows …
I can’t believe that it has already been a whole year since I started this iRestore Laser Hair System journey. It has been a very educational year learning about DHT, hair loss, hair cycles, laser hair therapy, and more.
I first want to thank iRestore for pairing with me on this journey. Second, I want to tell you readers about the journey.
I first heard about iRestore in Popular Science magazine. That was before we got an email asking if we wanted to work with them for a year. Lisa asked me and of course I said yes. I was willing to try anything to help with my bald spot. I was self-conscious about it, always trying to hide it, and would get very nervous when anyone was behind me. And I made sure to never let anyone take a picture from behind me either!
I sent over photos of my bald spot before starting with iRestore to see if I would be a good candidate for this. Waiting for them to say yes had me pretty nervous. Luckily, the brand said yes, I was a good candidate. Of course, everyone’s results will vary so no one can be 100% sure if anything will work, but this was a great sign.
Over the course of a year, I have seen some improvement. My hair definitely feels a lot softer, healthier, and less frizzy.
But, as you can see when you compare my photos from March 5, 2018 to March 5, 2019, the bald spot doesn’t seem to have drastically changed. Lisa gets a better view when she takes these photos and trims my hair monthly, and she said she can definitely see that there has been some growth and there are more hairs in the area of the bald spot. But, as you can see from the photos, the bald spot is still very prominent.
I was hoping the bald spot would be gone and I could cut my hair short, but that didn’t happen.
Lisa and I were talking the other night about how it is impossible to know what my hair would look like if I didn’t use the iRestore laser hair system. Maybe, even though it didn’t help to grow hair to cover my bald spot, it prevented the spot from growing. And that is great!
I am planning on continuing to use the system even though our review time is over. It has become a habit now to use the helmet for 25 minutes a day every other day, so it’ll be easy for me to continue with that. I won’t be posting my progress every month, though.
