If you’re in the market for a hair regrowth treatment, you’re not alone. Thousands of people across the globe are in search of hair loss solutions as well, resulting in the industry netting almost $4 billion in 2016 alone. iGrow reviews are not hard to come by. But you may be tempted to write them off as paid advertising, or be reluctant to accept claims that the treatment works.
With that in mind, we’ll offer you our own iGrow reviews in an effort to help you sort truth from fiction.
iGrow Reviews: What the Company Claims
To begin, iGrow claims that it will help you regrow hair in 6 months. The product comes with a money back guarantee, and that 100% of those tested after using the product had grown new hair.
The product itself is a bit different than the creams and shampoos you may be accustomed to. The device looks like a fancy pair of gaming headphones, complete with a shock absorbing helmet. What it is, in fact, is a low light laser therapy for hair regrowth, and that “helmet” is the source of the light.
Looking at the device, it’s clear that the product is only designed to work for hair regrowth on the crown of your head. If you’re interested in restoring a full head of hair, this product may not be for you. The headphones are just that – they’re headphones. While you “undergo” your treatment, you can plug your iPod or other device into the jack and listen to your heart’s content.
The company claims that there are no special shampoos needed; the iGrow treatment is a standalone therapy. It uses 650—670nm wavelength light to stimulate hair follicles, supposedly encouraging hair growth. The product is deemed safe for use following transplant surgery, and can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as Rogaine (Minoxidil) or Propecia.
In summary, the iGrow device is a strange looking thing, definitely meant for use in the privacy of ones’ home. But let’s take a look at iGrow reviews and see what customers have had to say about the efficacy of the product.
iGrow Reviews: What Customers are Saying
There are a few different ways to research iGrow reviews. You can go online and look at Amazon, of course. Check to see who’s made a verified purchase and see what they’ve got to say. You can browse the web, searching for iGrow reviews, but in that case you never know whether the company paid for positive reviews of the product.
We like to go straight to the source, so we interviewed people who have actually used the product. Did it work? Was it messy or difficult? What did they like and dislike about the product?
The first con that people mentioned to us is the price of the iGrow. At almost $600 for just the headpiece and a trial bottle of shampoo, the cost is pretty steep. Fortunately for the customers who served as our guinea pigs, a majority of users claimed that the product worked. After continuous use, most users state that there’s a noticeable difference in the hair growth on their scalp, and that they were satisfied with their purchase.
There was, however, a subset of users who saw no marked difference. Several people gave us a “neutral” review, saying that they were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied with the result of the iGrow. Of these neutral reviews, only one customer chose not to take advantage of the money-back guarantee.
Finally, there were a small handful of negative iGrow reviews. These users said there was no hair growth, and that they experienced problems with the device.
iGrow Reviews: The Pros
Of course, those users who gave us positive iGrow reviews were those who experienced hair growth with use of the iGrow. These users said that they felt a tingling as they were using the iGrow, and that not only did hair growth occur, but hair loss stopped. This was, to us, the most remarkable effect that our reviewers reported: it’s possible that the iGrow could be used as a preventive measure.
The positive iGrow reviews also cited the user-friendly nature of the product. They told us that the settings were easy to program, and the headphones were easy to use. The speaker quality, though not a major selling point for a hair growth product (see also Scalp Massager and Etae), was reportedly almost “BOSE quality.”
Customer service was also a plus. One of our reviewers received her iGrow damaged, and immediately contacted customer care. The company promptly sent her a replacement with expedited shipping. Those who chose to return the product had no problem doing so. They reported that their money was returned promptly, and they weren’t pressured to keep the iGrow.
Finally, our positive iGrow reviews cited the ease of use. Many had tried creams and shampoos in the past, and found them messy and tiring. The iGrow was very low-maintenance, and those who loved it loved its simplicity.
iGrow Reviews: The Cons
The majority of the negative iGrow reviews we were received were from customers who didn’t see results. Some stated that hair loss continued, and others said that hair loss stopped but there was no regrowth of new hair.
One iGrow reviewer told us that the device gave him a headache. He attributed the headache to the lights and the tingling sensation he felt. We suggested to him that he may consider adjusting the volume on the music he played through the iGrow headphones, but he still maintained that the lights caused the headaches.
Finally, there were negative iGrow reviews from users who attempted to return the product but could not. As it would turn out, these reviewers did not purchase the device through Amazon or the iGrow website. Instead, they’d purchased the product from third party sellers. These sellers’ return policies varied.
iGrow Reviews: The Verdict
Based on the iGrow reviews we received, the device was hit or miss. Customers liked the ease of use and the fact that there were no messy creams or shampoos, but they disliked the price and the return policy from third party sellers.
Our advice to you is this: iGrow reviews vary, so go ahead and try it. If you’re dissatisfied, return the product to the company within the timeframe specified; be sure to buy through a trusted seller in order to take advantage of the money back guarantee.
In short, “nothing ventured, nothing gained” is an expression which could easily be applied to the iGrow device; give it a shot. It might very well work for you!
