Getting Started with Theradome

I have recently been gaining a forehead. That is just a polite way of saying I am losing hair. It is falling off in clumps, in the shower, tangled in the detangler comb, stuck to the hair brush and randomly floating on bits of clothing and furniture. Not nice. Not nice at all.

Especially given that around four years ago when I fell pregnant, my hair felt like that of Rapunzel. The thick and shiny tresses lasted till about J was a year old. And then it began. Thinning, falling, tumbling hair, like leaves off a tree in autumn.


Getting Started with Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet

I didn’t actively seek treatment for my hair loss. I guess I was just hoping it would stop and I would at least go back to my pre-pregnant head of hair. Not as Rapunzelesque as during the pregnancy, but reasonably nice all the same.

My poor hair as it stands now



It so happened that I got chatting with Sally-Ann about Theradome. Simply put, it is a wearable laser therapy for hair loss. It is a helmet with in-built lasers of a certain wavelength that you wear on your head a couple of times a week. Switch it on and leave it to do its work for around 20 minutes while you read a book, watch TV or write your blog. The lasers in Theradome stimulate blood circulation to hair follicles to promote hair growth and stop hair falling out. It is US FDA approved for safety.

Theradome LH80 Pro Laser Helmet (to give it its proper name), comes with its own power cable for mains charging. A switch activates the lasers and a voice tells you when it is ready for treatment, how long you have left and how many treatments you have had. All this so you can track the progress of your hair revival.

Now it takes time and patience to see results with Theradome. Your hair will not grow thick and lustrous overnight, it is not magic. It will take at least 4-6 months before you start noticing a discernible difference. And you will need maintenance treatments once you achieve optimum hair growth. That said, if you look at cost-effectiveness, Theradome works out a lot cheaper than visiting a laser clinic.

I am really excited about embarking on my Theradome journey. As Sally-Ann suggested, I have had my bloods checked to make sure I do not have any vitamin or iron deficiency that could have caused my hair problems. This is important, as Theradome works best when any underlying deficiency is corrected simultaneously.

I will keep you posted on my hair restoration journey with Theradome over the coming months. Watch this space.

  7. I'll be really interested to see how the results are. My hair is probably at its worst at the moment in terms of falling out! I thought the worst had already happened post pregnancy, but sometimes I can pull clumps out in the shower!

  8. This sounds amazing! My hair has always been very fine and not much of it but it hasn't stopped falling out since my youngest was born two years ago, I'm looking forward to finding out if this works for you! x

  9. I am sorry to hear about your loss of hair but the theradome sounds fantastic and really three or four months is not long at all. Look forward to hearing about the rest of your journey!

  10. Wow......I never would have thought ..... At least it's easy to use, and can used in the privacy of your own home.
    You can get pills to encourage hair growth, have you tried these aswell.

  13. That is one heck of a helmet. I personally wouldn't buy it even if I had problems with my hair (which I do) but everyone to their own. Hope it helps you out in the long run!

  15. I've never heard of this and it scares me a little but I'd love to try it out. I have a little bit of hair loss but it's due to the fact I constantly pull it out without realising.

  16. Good luck with it. I too have had first hand experience of post pregnancy shedding so I can totally relate. It looks very futuristic xx

  22. I actually ended up with the reverse problem after having my girls - I had very fine hair before I got pregnant, and lost loads afterwards, but it still ended up being thicker than before!!! Bonus. x
