Theradome Hair Growth Helmet – Does It Work?

WHAT ON EARTH is a Hair Growth Helmet?

Hair growth helmets are the latest and greatest use of technology for good. Lasers can shoot into space, carve through walls, remove hair, and yes: lasers can also stimulate hair growth.

The Theradome hair growth helmet uses state-of-the-art cold laser technology stimulates our hair follicles and improves cellular metabolism on the scalp, to improve hair growth.

Cold laser therapy targets hair loss at the exact locations where we (oh so painfully) notice it.

Cold Lasers have been shown by extensive scientific research to repair hair-generating tissues.  They do this by stimulating blood circulation and encourage the regeneration of normal healthy tissue.

Clinical trials with low laser light therapy for hair loss showed that that laser light decreases inflammation, stimulates micro-circulation and improve protein synthesis. What does that mean? Healthy follicles on a healthy scalp. What does a healthy scalp with healthy follicles do? It grows big, beautiful hair again.

The Theradome LH80 PRO is recommended by many hair loss experts including Bosley, Hair Club and other prominent medical clinics and high-end salons all over the world.

How To Use The Theradome Hair Growth Helmet:

theradome hair loss helmetThis is easy: put the cordless, wireless comfortable helmet on your head twice a week.

Wear it for twenty minutes. Let it do its magic. That’s it.

No sprays, no shampoos, no hair fibers, no tinctures stinking up your pillow at night, no Rogaine leaking down your cheek and making your face all hairy instead of your head.

Just pure, clean, follicle nurturing light: twice a week. It really couldn’t be easier.

Why Choose Theradome?

You have a few options when it comes to purchasing a hair loss helmet.
1) There’s the perfectly respectable and more affordable iRestore.
2) There’s the big daddy gangsta, the Capillus202.
3) There’s the big industry player, Hairmax.
4) And then there are the budget option laser combs, which are perfectly serviceable but require more work
And then there’s the Theradome.  Right in the middle, not too hard on the wallet…backed by a fabulous one-year guarantee.
In my opinion, the major reason to select the Theradome hair growth helmet over the competition is its market longevity. Theradome has over 100 reviews on at the time of this blog post.
Plus, Theradome comes with free one-day shipping!

What does Theradome Say?

  • <glorious hairYou’ve been losing hair for a long time. Up until now, your options have been limited to expensive hair restoration surgery, inconvenient visits to laser hair clinics, costly prescription drugs, messy topical creams, and ineffective LED devices that don’t penetrate the scalp with sufficient energy.
  • The Theradome LH80 PRO has managed to cut the costs of clinical strength Laser Phototherapy while maximizing its benefits for FDA – cleared and affordable hair rejuvenation in the comfort of your own home.
  • Cold laser therapy has had over 50 years to develop into cutting edge technology. Our full coverage helmet makes use of 80 proprietary lasers that are optimized for the purposes of hair growth and can reach all problem areas.
  • Unlike devices manufactured with LEDs, our 678-nm laser light penetrates your scalp and can effectively reach the base of hair follicles during a 20-minute treatment window.
  • Stimulation at the cellular level ensures adequate energy is absorbed to regrow, strengthen, and rejuvenate your hair.
  • Hair loss doesn’t occur overnight and neither does hair growth.
  • With only twice-a-week, 20-minute sessions at home, you can start paving the way to a full head of healthy hair. Clinical trials have shown that over time, hair loss can be reversed with the Theradome LH80 PRO.
  • Most of our patients that choose to adhere to our recommended regimen and instructions experience a decrease of shedding, an increase of hair growth, and a doubling of hair diameter, overall giving them thicker, more vibrant hair.

Theradome Laser Helmet Reviews

Here’s a summary of user reviews online, after my extensive research. I always find it helps to have a quick pros/cons list for any product when I”m making my decisions.

Benefits of Theradome laser therapy for hair loss:

  • Low level laser therapy can be used in both men and women with androgenic alopescia
  • No adverse effects have been reported
  • It is clean and painless
  • The Theradome produces less than 1 degree Celsius of heat during use – not uncomfortable
  • Low level laser hair therapy is inexpensive over time (when you do the math of purchasing tinctures and supplements and shampoos)
  • The Theradome requires minimal time commitment
  • Some low level laser therapy devices are portable – the Theradome one is wireless and cordless.
  • Hair growth may occur on the top of the head/crown and along the hairline of forehead – where we need it both.

Improvement is reported by some users after 12 to 26 weeks of use, with reduced hair fall and noticeable hair growth.


  • The up-front cost of $895
  • Not recommended for people with photosensitivity, or for people who take medications that can cause photosensitivity.

Who Can Use Theradome?

Men and women who are suffering from hair loss, or afraid that they will experience hair loss due to their genetics, should use Theradome.

At this time, the Theradome is only FDA cleared to use for women, but men can certainly purchase and use it as well.

  • Those with known allergies or sensitivities to light or laser treatment should not use Theradome.
  • Those on medications that cause photosensitivity should not use Theradome.
  • And, from the Theradome website: “Patients that have an Ommaya reservoir under their scalp need to consult their physician before undergoing LLLT for hair growth. Additionally, scalp cancer patients should refrain from using the Theradome, as it can activate the growth of both healthy and unhealthy cells.”

Should You Try Theradome? Yes.

happy theradome familyIf the above medical restrictions don’t apply to you: yes, the Theradome could be just right for you.

If you have experienced multiple chemical sensitives when trying various hair loss sprays and shampoos and supplements like Rogaine or DHT blockers, this product will make your hair-loss treatment plan much easier.

Many of us have allergies and sensitivities to chemicals and plan ingredients, but very few of us have photosensitivity.

If you are busy and have limited time to dedicate to your hair loss treatment regimen, the hair loss helmet is the right choice for you.  It only takes 40 minutes a week.

If you have the up front money, just go get one.



If you’re still on the fence, here’s my challenge: consider and compare what you’d normally spend on other less expensive hair loss products over time.

Take a minute and add up everything you’ve spent on sprays, shampoos, and supplements…all of that $80 here and $50 there for various supplements and shampoos. Now, do the math of their ongoing expense.

Is it more than $500? Is it more than $1,000? For most of us, unfortunately, the answer is yes.

With Theradome, you’ll save money over time.

Have you tried a hair growth laser helmet, or the Theradome? I’d love to hear about your experience, if so. Please leave your comments or questions about this (or anything at all), and I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. I have never heard of this product so I found your review very intriguing as I looked up ways to repair my loss of hair. I started losing hair when I was young and it never really came back. Thank you for the detailed description on it!

  2. Wow! Very interesting and cool product. Thank you for the informative review. I have a questions. Men with bad front hairlines that never had hair there in the first place, would this be beneficial for that?

    • The Theradome is FDA cleared for use for women only, although they do sell the products to anyone (including men) and there are plenty of reviews online from men that speak positively for the Theradome, and they are in the process of clearing it for use for men.

      As for hair that has “never” existed- this is a big challenge from any hair loss product. most of these products are geared toward protecting existing hair or regenerating vellus roots (small, tiny hairs), rather than roots that have been totally destroyed or never existed. great question though!

  3. Interesting review I never realised there were high-tech products for this type of condition, just thought you had to put up with it or wear a hat or wig. If we can regrow hair, this changes everything!

  4. So this is new news to me. Thinning hair does come with age but this sounds like it may re thicken my hair by replacing what has been lost. How long does it take to notice a difference?

    • Thanks for stopping by! That question depends on the individual, but generally speaking it takes 6 weeks or longer to notice a difference because of our hair’s natural shedding and regrowing cycles. From the people who’ve used this and benefited, I’d say it’s worth the wait.

  5. I just showed my wife this and she’s begging me to buy her one for Christmas, she’s not even old nor is her hair thinning but every time she brushes her hair a big pile of hair comes out, it might be the fact that she has hair down to her ass or it might be the fact that she is stressed out having to live with myself and our 4 sons which are 11, 10, 8 and 3 lol.
    Would this work on men’s hair as well or is it just for women?

    • Yeah, you should TOTALLY get this as a gift for your wife. I’m sure she’ll love it! Think of it as protecting her long hair vs. any kind of balding treatment.

      This works for men and women, but it’s still in the process of being cleared for men. For more info about a laser product also cleared for men, click here.

  6. I never knew there was such a thing as a hair loss helmet. Thanks for the info on it. Too bad it is not recommended for men–my fiance could really use it!

    • Isn’t it cool?? BTW: men can use the Theradome – it’s in the process of being FDA-cleared for them. For products already FDA-cleared for men, check out my review of the LaserBand 41.

  7. Hi Penelope,
    Thanks for this review. I was totally unaware of such a device. My hair thinned in the past few months due to adrenal stress and medications, and I’ve been considering some very expensive products to get back my hair, but didn’t make a decision yet.
    My hair loss is less now, as I am treating the main causes, and once those are solved I plan to get this device on my head and see my hair grow and become thick once again!
    Thanks again, my hair is very important to me.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Alma! I’m glad I could lead you to the existence of cold laser therapy, it will help you recover from your hair loss for sure!

  8. I am not loosing hair per say, but as you get older it just gets thinner and is not as thick and full as when I was younger. Does this help with this? I supposed stimulating growth would make it thicker. I was looking online for products to use for this, but this sounds like something that would work a lot better, and it makes sense. The price tag is hefty for sure, but in the long run, after paying for a bunch of different products that really don’t work, I think that it is worth it. Is there any kind of money back guarantee?

    • Thanks for the comment and question. This hair loss helmet does help with thinning hair (strengthening existing hair and promoting new growth) – and it’s a good point. Not everyone looking for a hair loss solution has experienced strict loss or shedding or balding; usually people start looking for solutions when they notice thinning or less volume.

      There is a 7-day return period, to ensure that the product works, and a 1 year warranty. I suppose because it’s a top of the line product, Theradome is comfortable with the results people will see.

      If you’re interested in a hair loss helmet with a generous return period, check out the iRestore – you have six months to try that one!

  9. I’v never heard of this before. I shared this article to my Facebook. I would like to spread the word on this, I may look into this myself eventually. My hair is thinning out and every time I wash it I find gobs of hair in the tub.

    • Thanks for the feedback and share! Now is definitely the time to start treating your hair if you’re losing it – now, not later. weak follicles are salvageable but after a certain point in time, the follicles die and you lose your window!

  10. What a time we live in. Hair growing helmets. This is simply amazing nothing less. I have been losing hair over the years and I have a few family members doing the same.

    I showed them this article and you should’ve seen their eyes and mouths hit the floor.

    Great post!

    Is it better for men or women?

    • It’s FDA cleared for women and the process is pending for men. I’m glad that you’ve shared the marvel of the hair growing helmet- it is truly astonishing what technology can do.

  11. I am impressed how far the technology of cold lasers has come.
    This helmet is really something else. Based on your review it seems like a very good product and of delicate use.
    You mention that “Patients that have an Ommaya reservoir under their scalp need to consult their physician before undergoing LLLT for hair growth”. Most of times people are not aware they have this disease. Would you recommend to consult a doctor before using this product?

    • Hmmmm…good question. I would suggest doctor approval from people who might have photosensitivity, or cancer survivors who’ve had hair loss due to chemo, or anyone else with a rare or obscure hair loss or skin condition. It can’t hurt to get physician input. however, for most of us, it’s not required: this technology is safe and FDA cleared.

  12. Hi Penelope, It is my first time hearing about the Theradome. It sounds a interesting product and very easy to use, 20 minutes x 2 times/week. As you mentioned that it can result in hair regrowth. Do you know what is the mechanism behind this? I have hair loss and right now I use hair oil, blend of six different oil, which slow down hair loss. It is cheap, about $10/4 OZ, and can be used for 2 to 3 months. I would like to continue to use hair oil. My question to you is: can I use hair oil and Theradome in the same time? Thanks for the nice review.

    • Hi Anthony -thanks for the question. Yes, you can use Theradome along with other topical treatments like oils and serums. The mechanism is in the low laser wavelength stimulating the cells in the individual hair follicles to improved cellular metabolism and health. It’s cool stuff, this science!

  13. Very interesting product. I had no idea these existed. My aunt and mom are suffering from hair loss. I’ll send them your site so they can see this. 🙂

  14. Hi there.

    Maybe that´s a real stupid question, but is this going to fit on any head? Also, is it more like a balancing act while it´s on there or does it sit properly?

    Thanks for your feedback 🙂

    • It fits on most heads, that’s an excellent question. It isn’t adjustable, so think more like balancing act, but you can move about freely while it’s zapping your follicles back to life. Thanks for the great comment!

  15. Wow, this is a very interesting product. I have never heard of it but I can see how this would be a great investment. It is easier to use than shampooing your hair and it definitely is less messy. It is a bit expensive but for what you are getting that is understandable. Great review!

    • Thanks for reading! I’m pretty sure this laser therapy is for all the messphobes out there. Plus, it’s just so awesome that laser technology can help with hair growth.

  16. My husband is the one with the hair loss; you stated that it is approved only for women, but men can certainly use it. Do you know why it’s not cleared for men to use it? My husband is set to purchase the Low level Laser Therapy 200 Diode Hair Loss Helmet, what is the difference between the two?
    Thank you for this very informative information.

    • Thank you for reading, and for the great question. The 200 Diode Hair Loss Helmet comes with an app that you can pre-program to target you specific regions of hair loss. It also has more lasers, 200 to the Theradome’s 80. It’s awesome. The Theradome, on the other hand, has been around much longer and is a more established brand. For those concerned with brand reputation and longevity, the Theradome is the better choice. For those concerned with price, warranty, and the programmability of the helmet, the 200 Diode helmet is the better choice. I actually don’t know why the Theradome is only cleared for women, because both the 200 Diode Helmet and the HairMax product line are cleared to work for both.

  17. My hair loss is more around the temples, crown and sides. I am worried the cap will not reach my problem areas . How far does the cap come down would you say. At least for the temples? Do you have to part the problem areas?

    • Hi Barbie,
      If you’re concerned about coverage to those areas, I’m going to recommend two different products. The first is the iRestore helmet, which has a different design and is adjustable to fit all scalp types. It covers the entire scalp. OR you can get a HairMax Laserband, which you will need to shift around during use, but can more directly target your trouble areas. Let me know if you have any questions about those products! Also, the ones I just recommended are less expensive than the Theradome, so that’s a big plus! 🙂

      • Thank you for your quick response. So I looked at the irestore, and it doesn’t look like it has much more coverage.
        But you feel it does have more laser coverage? Or That it does target more of the head.

        • Hi Barbie! Thanks for the reply! To me, the different shape of the iRestore implies more coverage, because it doesn’t have that gap over the ears like the Theradome. Although it’s true that the Theradome includes more lasers (80 vs 51)…What I’m learning here is that an in-depth post about the difference between iRestore and Theradome would be a great idea for the future, so I can research every single aspect of each and compare them in a table!

          Have you taken a look at the Hairmax laserband products? It seems like they could more specifically target your loss areas. Plus you can get 10% off of those right now with the coupon code TRYHM, which means serious savings because of the price point..

          Let me know what you decide!
