So I bet you have done what I have done and googled the sh*t out of hair loss and alopecia! Well apparently red laser therapy works on the bonce and helps the hair grow. (For everyone including balding men by the way) So I bought one, not cheap at £749, but I do think it has made the hair growth I’ve got thicker and it’s curly?? My hair is blonde and poker straight normally, maybe this made it brown, thick and curly?
This is me in my Theradome helmet!
So How does low-level light therapy work? LLLT, or low-level light therapy, stimulates skin cells. It puts hair follicles into the anagen phase, or growth stage. This requires light of a certain wavelength, specifically between 630 to 670 nanometers. A study published in 2013 found that using red light with a wavelength of 655 nm “significantly improved hair counts in males with androgenetic alopecia.” Translation: “LLLT with red light made balding men a bit more Hairier!”
Hair follicles weaken over time until they eventually stop growing and shed. Although this process is normal and repeats for most people, for some, the scalp quits producing hair. The laser therapy is designed to stimulate blood flow and bring nutrients to the affected areas, which encourages regrowth. The new hair follicles that emerge are also stronger, thicker and healthier. “Which I can vouch for!”

The Theradome closely resembles a cycling helmet, weighs less than one pound and was created by former NASA scientist Tamim Hamid. Within the core of the unit are 80 cold laser diodes, which emit light at a wavelength of 678nm. An internal pressure point cage serves as a cushioning device in addition to alerting the sensors when the helmet is in place. A built-in speaker provides audio instruction and can be programmed for different languages. The helmet also features a counting system to keep track of the number of treatments applied. A USB cord connection enables you to upload firmware directly from the website.
Initial use requires charging the cordless helmet for two hours.
The convenience of the helmet being cordless means there are no location restrictions. Wear the helmet to do any number of activities.
A full charge provides five to seven treatments. Each session lasts 20 minutes before the helmet turns itself off. You must use the helmet twice weekly in order to achieve results. After putting on the helmet, you simply push the blister-power button on the rear of the device to activate the lasers. Visible results should appear in 26 to 52 weeks. You then use the Theradome once weekly for maintenance purposes.
