Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator- consigned to Dept of Daft

Is a Solution for:
Thinning Hair & Shedding
Reviewed by Marta October 28, 2011 11 Comments
It looks like a bicycle helmet on wheels and, when wearing it, you’ll look like Darth Vader’s reject understudy, but it will make your hair grow (while playing you music) and all for only $699.95. Yes, folks, this is the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator for the follically challenged everywhere.

Whether your follicles will be freaked out or frazzled remains another issue. Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator delivers them “a broad array of pulsed light energy” from 21 lasers that are built in to the ‘helmet’.

These days Google helpfully fills in your search terms before you’ve even had time to type them and “laser hair” inspires the search engine to come up with “removal”. This is the opposite of the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator intentions: it promises to grow hair in 60 days with laser beams that produce “a 655nm wavelength - the optimal wavelength used in LLLT (low level laser therapy) for increased cellular activity within hair follicles”.

There are other hair growth devices that use LLLT, such as the laser comb. I have been intrigued by them for some time, yet I have never been able to find any research demonstrating that low level laser therapy results in hair growth.

But for me, the most disappointing aspect of the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator is that in order to play music to your sprouting follicles you need to supply your own iPod.

    I have been interested in the laser/led lights for hair growth for sometime. I actually visited Dr. Zeirling's office (he was featured on The Doctors TV show). He recommended the laser comb on the show, and he also does the light therapy in his office. What I liked about his recommendation is that he was not selling anything. He said the lasers work, and buy them on Amazon or wherever, because it's cheaper than having treatments in his office. I have a laser comb, but I am not consistent with it and tend to get to it at bedtime and fall asleep and leave it on...it is tedious!! I like the idea of the helmet because I can use it at the computer. The thing is, Dr. Zeirling's office said that there are a number of things that work, but most men think it just hopeless so they give up. Women are lot more curious and will spend more time researching and discussing it.

    It seems logical to me that Hammecker Schlemmer must have tested the product before they listed it. After all, selling valuable products is why they are still around since 1848. Note, no, I do not work for them.

    Ernesto, I finally decided to buy the iGrow unit because I'll be away most of the summer and didn't want to discontinue my LLLT treatments. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the unit in my doctor's office. I haven't started using the iGrow yet, but I'll post my thoughts here when I get back in in a couple of months.

    I'm still very happy with the Revage 670 and my hair continues to improve. This week, I had my annual endocrinologist checkup and he was amazed at the difference. When you look at yourself in the mirror everyday it can be hard to see the changes but when someone you haven't seen in a year says, "wow!" ... you know it's working.

    Hi Donna, that's great to hear about the laser comb. How long have you been using it? According to this article in the LA Times about 20% of subjects in a trial saw some results over a 6 month period. http://articles.latimes.com/2009/jan/12/health/he-nuskeptic12

    I, too, suffer from significant hair loss which I find to be very distressing. And talk about a confidence killer! Thanks Joan for bringing actual factual information to the conversation. I have researched many, many hair restoration "solutions" and found that the LLLT seems to be the only legitimate solution, along with minoxidil (which I truly hate). I bought the laser comb and have seen improvement.

    I am disappointed that Marta seemed to dismiss the LLLT without anything to support her comments. I have been getting these newsletters for a little while and was considering buying some of the recommended products, but I now I have to wonder about the other recommendations??? Too bad.

    Hi Joan, thanks for sharing your experience. I'd love to see any studies on laser and hair growth and will gladly take you up on your offer to share them.

    Actually, this might not be as daft as it appears at first glance.

    It's remarkably similar (as in "exactly") to the iGrow device made by Apira Science. Compare the pics from their website to the pic above. It's the same product. I suspect Apira manufactures the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator and lets them put their own label on it.

    Apira also makes the Revage 670 LLLT device found in doctors' offices. I've been a Revage "client" for a little over a year and the results are undeniable. Even my husband, who initially balked at the idea - not to mention the expense - is surprised (shocked, actually) by how much my hair has improved. The shedding is down to a normal levels and I have regrowth everywhere. Not only that, my hair is coming in stronger and thicker ... not weak and wispy like before. For the first time in 5 years, I'm not freaking out about my severe hair loss. I feel almost normal again.

    I'm considering purchasing an iGrow so I can maintain my treatments when I travel, which is often.

    The iPod attachment aspect is definitely gimmicky but there's a reason behind it … those earphones act as a headband to keep the device securely in place, nothing more really.

    The iGrow has 21 lasers and 30 LEDs, the Revage 670 has 30 lasers. Of course, the Revage 670 device costs about $30,000. The iGrow (and the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator) use 650nm lasers and Revage uses 670 (635nm - 670nm is considered the range most beneficial to hair growth). Considering that those laser combs and brushes have 1-5 lasers and sell for about $400-500, it's not that much of a stretch on the price.

    Most hair transplant surgeons are on board with LLLT as a safe, drug-free and effective treatment for hair loss. It's especially helpful for men after a transplant to give those little sprouts the best chance to grow in thick and healthy. But at the hair transplant surgeon's office where I have my treatments, the overwhelming number of clients I see under the Revage unit are women with typical female hair loss. I started shortly after they got their second unit and recently they added a third. Several of the women I've talked to said they decided to try it after seeing a friend's results.

    I don't work for Apira, Revage, iGrow or the surgeon. I wish I did … I might have gotten a better deal!! But the results are real. It's not cheap, but it has worked for me.

    Like most TIA readers, I did a lot of research on LLLT before I plunked down my hard-earned cash. Marta, I practically have a hard drive full of studies about the effectiveness of LLLT with regards to hair regrowth - and not all written by the industry. I'd be happy to share with you if you're interested!

    Hi Marta - I love your website and since I suffer a bit from hair loss, I was quite interested to read this review. However, there really was none. Why write about it at all if all you are doing is commenting on how it looks and the fact that you must supply your own music? I can see putting it into the 'department of daft' once you've tested it and determined that it doesn't work. But this just seems like a waste of time. Thoughts?
