Wow that's a very nice review. But I'm with you with seeing results or regrowth. Most be hard for you one year later to see zero regrowth after putting in all that time. Or even worse, that u think ur hair might have gone back a bit. It worries me too, cause your 4 months ahead of me. I'm just finishing of month 8th. But I have to say since I started my hair has gone back a bit. And for some stupid reason that right side more then the left. The question I have for u dome is, u see any peach fuzz like hair with the right lighting in ur receding hairline? I do and I'm wondering if that's a positive sign or if that's just good hairs going bad. Thanks. Was awesome fallowing ur, reviews Throughout the year! Best of luck man!!!!
Thanks Jiggy. I do see peach fuzz in the areas where the hair has receded, but that's not a result of the Theradome usage.
Hi dome. Thanks for the reply. So u say it's not a result from the theradome, did u notice that fuzz before u started using the theradome? And do u have any faith that the theradome with turn that fuzz into some hairs?
That fuzz was there from beginning. Looking back I may have actually lost a bit of fuzz over the course of the year. At this time I don't have much faith in the Theradome doing anything remarkable.
I have used the Theradome for about 10 months - there has been no change at all.
Great job of blogging and informing people! Appreciated!
Excellent review. Thanks for putting that together.
I agree with your assessment. There is no obvious improvement and maybe even some slight loss in the front. As you mentioned, it is hard to really say with pictures as tiny changes in styling/lighting/angle can alter appearances considerably.
As I mentioned in a previous post a few months back, I believe LLLT may work better long term as each treatment slowly builds on the previous one. There are dozens of anecdotal reports from guys using laser helmets for 2,3,5 years that all suggest the best results are not seen at one year.
Of course for each positive review like that you can probably find several negative reviews, so as with anything YMMV.
The true test IMO would be if you just stopped using the Theradome cold turkey for 6 months. If it was maintaining your hair, you will lose a lot of hair and it will be noticeable in the before and after shots. If you hair remains unchanged, then Theradome was probably not doing anything for you. Not sure you want to go down that road though.
Thanks Ahadabans. I have appreciated your feedback and commentary throughout this experiment.
I plan to continue to use the helmet. I don't believe it will produce any new hair, but there's always a chance it could. I would like to be able to say that I gave it more than enough time to work.
I also don't think that stopping usage of the Theradome would result in noticeable hair loss. My scalp held onto hair for quite awhile without Theradome and appears to have shed at an increased rate once the Theradome was introduced.
Hi Dome Reviewer
Thanks for keeping a report of use usage of the Theradome helmet. It has been very interesting to follow.
Out of interest, are you going to keep posting your progress (or lack of) now that the one year is up?
Thanks. I plan to post 1 update per month during 2015.
Well, it's been almost 14 months for me and I don't detect any changes in volume or length. I do get more fuzzes at the hairline but they don't seem to turn into anything of note. So disappointing.
I do think there's been some upgrade in the feel of my hair but enough for me to recommend the purchase of a Theradome? No.
I guess I'll keep using it because it's easy and I already have it but no longer have any expectations. I hope it's not giving me brain damage.
I've used the theradome since march of last year, 2-3x a week; head and shoulders on and off 2x a week and a deep cleansing shampoo. I don't know how i feel about it at this point; I think I see less scalp when looking in the mirror, can't be sure but i definitely have not seen any regrowth. My hairline definitely does not look better; and I'm almost positive I've receded a bit as well. It may be that people respond differently given the Tamim's results and the other weebly blog or we're just being lied to, at this point I'm getting pissed cause of expectations theradome set and the money I spent on this machine; i'm not sure what do other than shave my head at this point because there aren't really any other meaningful alternatives outside a hair transplant. Sorry for the somewhat aggressive post, just had to vent somewhere.
I wouldn't put too much thought into Tamim and the other weebly blog's success. Both people work for Theradome.
I totally discounted Tamin and his results as he runs the place. Of course, it's actually possible it helped him but we don't know the reason for his particular hair loss.
Even if I didn't get new hairs, I was hoping it would at least give me even growth so the front and sides of my hair would grow as long as the rest of my hair. Hasn't happened. I still have temple and hairline hair that won't grow longer than 2 - 2 1/2" before it falls out. They're info did say it would reawaken the growth cycle and that seems to be another stretching of the truth as well.
How do you know the other weebly guy works for Tamin ? I thought he was real lol, oh damn!

I noticed that too about Will Hornby...however he started at Theradome in September and was well into his treatments at that point. It says when he started right on his linked in profile. He probably started selling them because he was so impressed with his results. Sometimes you have to dig a little further before judging. I noticed this last year around November I think and have acknowledged this on Hairlosshelp. Why not join a company if the product is working for you? If you go on Theradome's website any one can become an affiliate to sell them as well. My hair is definitely improving every month and I am only 7-8 months in. New growth around juvenile hairline (fine hairs which will cycle until they are terminal) and the top is slowly getting its color back from that miniaturizing transparent color. Limiting use to 2-3 times a week as well as body inflammation and scalp condition is key. In an ideal environment lasers would be all you need as someone in the industry told me.
The man is free to do as he pleases. It does however create a bias if the reviewer is financially linked to the product. Imagine a hypothetical situation where Hornby experiences a bad shed and loses his Theradome related hair gains overnight. Does he tell us or does he continue to promote Theradome?
I'm happy to hear that your hair is improving with time. The majority of the others I've communicated with since the beginning aren't seeing much.
At the 7-8 month level, I too thought I was making progress. Lots of new hair growth along the hairline. Hair strands seemed a bit thicker. The problem is, at about 14 months, all that new growth really hasn't turned into new long-term hairs. The hairs around my face that only grow to about 2 to 2 1/2" long and then stop growing still behave that way. At that 7-8 month level, I gave Theradome pretty darn good reviews because I seemed to be making progress. Unfortunately, after continued use, things haven't improved since then. For that reason, I just could not recommend purchasing a Theradome to a friend. I paid about $375 for mine and aren't they something like $800 or so now? Definitely not worth it.
By the way, just because someone chooses to sell a product doesn't mean it actually works. He's a salesman and it's a product.
That's a good point regarding Will and I agree with you that he should state he works for them now. I emailed him this evening that he should state he works for them now, when he started, etc. on your blog and/or his if he is allowed to.
FYI...Got an email response from Will Hornby stating that he did start working for Theradome since he got great results and lives in the Bay Area...so he inquired about positions
