Still using the Theradome helmet two or three times per week. No signs of new hair growth or any other benefits as a result of the laser sessions.
I still use the Theradome twice each week. I don't think it provides any benefit , but I also don't think it causes any harm. The plan is to use it until it stops working.
I still receive the occasional email asking if I believe the Theradome helmet is worthy of a purchase. Current opinion is no , save your money. I paid less than $400 and would feel cheated if it wasn't for the experience of running this blog and interacting with you all. .
Several hundred people still visit this blog each day. While the blog exists to review the Theradome helmet, I would also like to include the occasional review of other products that have made a difference in my life. As far back as I can remember I have suffered from seasonal allergies. As a kid I received weekly allergy shots and each day swallowed whatever the latest allergy pill was at the time. As an adult I have improved a bit, but working in the lawn during the spring or summer is typically a miserable experience. Last week I received an order of First Defense Nasal Screens.
After applying a screen to each nostril I proceeded to mow and weed-eat the lawn, as well as trim a tree. For the first time I can recall I didn't experience so much as sneeze or sniffle. I highly recommend these to anyone who has similar allergy issues. A few of the Amazon reviews mentioned difficulty breathing with the screens on the nostrils, but I haven't experienced any issues. I pretty much forgot they were on and wore them for most of the day.
We're now at 15 months of Theradome usage. I miss the excitement of those first months. The forums were full of new users and skeptics debating the pros and cons of laser hair treatment. These days the internet appears to have moved on from believing that Theradome could be a miracle hair growth solution. The forums are now focused on other treatments and consider Theradome to be more of a supplement, a piece of a bigger puzzle. I have not noticed any signs of new hair growth nor have I have noticed any new hair loss.
I'm still using the Wild Naturals shampoo. I definitely recommend it to anyone who dislikes the chemical smell and drying affect of the alternatives. My scalp appears to be looking pretty good (normal) in the photos below.
These pictures were taken a couple of days after a haircut (1" on the sides and a "finger length" trim on the top).
While looking through some older videos on my phone I discovered one taken immediately after my first Theradome treatment. Here's a couple of screenshots.
During February of 2015 I continued to use the Theradome twice per week. I don't see any sign of improvement or increased hair count.
Decided to change to a natural shampoo with mostly organic ingredients. I can't make any claims to the effectiveness, but it appears to be at least as good as T/Gel. The price may seem expensive, but I've been using several times each week for a month and still have half a bottle. Reviews on Amazon are all positive.
