LaserCap Reviewed


I have seen the LaserCap on the open market now for about 18 months. I am always sceptical of new devices. I have been in the Laser Hair Therapy industry since 2002 and have seen so many devices come and go. If I haven't seen it work for someone first hand, usually I will write it off.

The LaserCap is unique though for one reason. It is the most powerful at home device available to date. After testing and being involved in many clinical studies for laser hair therapy, I know that more power is not necessarily a good thing. More power can lead to overstimulation and aggravation of scalp conditions including psoriasis and fungal infections. Yet, these devices are available and need to be used under the watchful eye of an experienced practitioner.

Why the LaserCap may be better for you than any other at home device:

The LaserCap has 224 pulsed direct light diodes. For about 40% of thelasercap kit people losing their hair, this may be the best at home laser available.

LaserCap users should have:

  • Fine hair
  • Light or natural blond Hair
  • Extremely Thin Hair

If you have thick, black, coarse hair. You should NOT use the LaserCap.

The reason for this is that too much laser can cause rapid shedding. People with thick coarse hair attract more light to the follicle. Think of the hair like a lightning rod. Each rod will attract light to the root of the follicle and delivery the energy. When the right amount of energy is delivered, the hair will grow more effectively. If too much energy is delivered, the hair may shed or slow its growth. This is the case in laser hair removal. High amounts of laser are delivered to the follicle and the hair sheds and grows back finer.

Now, people who have fine, thin, or light hair, attract less light to their hair follicles. This is due to the fact that light hair will reflect some light and fine hair is not as dense and needs more laser stimulation to grow.

For these people, the LaseCap is most likely the best chance at successful laser treatment from home. Below you will see an example of hair types that will benefit from the LaserCap.

LaserCap Correct Use Chart

For the hair types mentioned above, I am now recommending the LaserCap for home use.

The LaserCap should be used as follows:

  • Weeks 0-4: 5 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 2: 6 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 3: 7 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 4: 8 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 5: 9 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 6: 10 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 7-12: you may increase if needed to 15 mins 2 x per week

If you have seen rapid regrowth by the end of month 6, do not increase the laser duration. Maintain the 10 minutes 2 x per week. This mean that you have responded well to lower intensity light and do not need to increase it. If you increase the laser duration after regrowing alot of hair, you risk overstimulation.

I found this independant blogger video on youtube.

I have black hair and at one point thick hair, after using the Spencer Forrest X5 laser regenerator I noticed a lot of shedding and have even thinner hair than when I started using it aobut a year ago. I'm even on Propecia now and there is no regrowth. Do you know if the shedding is permanent and if my hair will ever regrow with just Propecia or has the laser fried my follicles for good? I'm really depressed as a result of this...

Hi AM, 
I tell everyone that there is always an equation that equals more hair. No, your hair loss should not be permanent as long as you find something to kick start your follicles into regrowing soon. There a many additional tools that you can use to get that growth started again. 
I have a couple questions: 
1. Do you have any scalp itching or burning? 
2. Is the shedding still happening? 
3. How long has the hair been gone now? 
Then I can recommend a course for regrowth.

Hi William, 
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I'm an Asian male with absolutely no MPB in either my mom or dad's side and my brother who is 1 year younger has nice thick coarse hair like I did before my hairloss happened. I didn't notice scalp ithcing or burning when I was using the laser but only when I was using Monoxodil which I heard was normal. However, the Monoxidil I did feel contribute to even more shedding with the hair never growing back. The shedding is definitely still happening at a very rapid rate, losing at least 70-100 hair from just showering and combing hair out, but I stopped using the laser for about 3 weeks now. I was very sporadic with the laser use since 2011 when I first got it. I started in July of 2011 and used it for 5 months noticing more shedding and thinning that seemed to speed up so I stopped. I incorporated Monoxidil into the regimen at the last month of the laser use in that initial 5 month of laser treatment and did that for about 6 months only to notice no growth and more shedding as well as an itchy and flaky scalp so I stopped - that was probably middle of last year. Only started on it again when I started Propecia 3 months ago - and now off of it for 3 weeks! I've had every test in the book done and nothing shows anything abnormal. At the first sight of hairloss I went to all these hairloss doctors and all of them told me I didn't have any hairloss, just normal male hair recession. But I just turned 33 and after only 2 years I have lost not only half the density on top of my scalp but there is an overall thinning ALL over my head. I can only attribute this to the laser diodes now after reading your post as I have no other explanation for it. You can see the top of my scalp now where as before there was just a slight peaking on the sides. I don't know if it's just stress and the more I'm stressing about the more I'm losing but now I'm just on Propecia for only 3 months and hope that it will help. However, the amount of hair I've been losing is still a lot and is so fine that I can barely see the strands in my hand. Please help! What can I do to kick start the hair again?

Hi AM, 
It sounds like you may a fungal or parasite infection of the scalp. Laser can seriously aggravate that condition because the fungus or parasites are stimulated by the same frequency that is used in Laser Hair Growth Devices.  
You have done the right thing by stopping everything. 
Have you been on antibiotics or any other medication before the onset of your hair loss? Or perhaps a serious bout of stress. 
Treatment starting point: 
I would recommend a couple things to start. 
1. Our Seabuckthorn Shampoo Bar 
2. Alkaline Shampoo 
3. Homeopathic Immune Stimulator 
When you have an infection of the scalp, usually it is due to a compromised immune system. You must boost your immune response and treat the infection directly. 
This protocol would be the first step. There are additional components that can be added as your scalp heals. 
I would recommend that you start here and then we can follow up via phone and track your progress

Thank goodness I found this post. I was just reading a good recommendation from the latest issue of Esquire recommending thus product. I'm like a poster above who's Asian and am rethinking a laser. I've been off and on minox and propecia and recently gave up again and been off for about a year. Hesitant to start up again but losing a lot more hair. I do have MPB and use Nioxin 6 often - is it never too late to get back on the regimen? I'm worried about the initial shedding. Should I do propecia first?

do you have any studies to refer to saying that certains types of hair should'nt use laser. Please can you put a link. Thanks!

I am confused, most LLLT hairloss studies specify 5-6 joules/cm2 for hair growth stimulation. That is what the lasercap delivers in it's prescribed 20 minute use. In addition this is usually 3x a week. It seems the short protocol you suggest does not meet the researched paremeters. Can you please comment?

Hi I'm David and I'm 26 years old I've been reciding at the sides for the last 6 years but isn't extremely bad just yet. I've been taken finestrade and minoxidil for the past 9 months but my reciding line hasn't got any better and I'm really light on top of my head and think it might even has got worse. Lately the minox I believe has made my head a bit itchy and is given me some little red spots on my head. What approach do u think I should take ?

Laser cap didn't work for me. I used it almost 3 years and it didn't grow any hair for me, nothing. Had to sell it to get my money back since the manufacture didn't want to refund my full refund when they pushed me to buy it by calling me again and again then I bought it and later, it didn't do anything, they disappeared when I said it didn't work

Menopausal., thinning on front hairline, and on crown. I have fine hair, about 80% grey. I colour it a light to med blonde. Don't know if that is important but I thought I would mention it. Is the laser cap a good choice for me? How/where do I find out about trials. Would love to get in on one. Will buy one but I would like to know....if there are different manufactures, and which are the best! Help...please.....many thanks!

I also bought the lasercap because I had to stop using finasteride due to sexual side affects. I thought the laser would help me retain what I had and maybe thicken my hair. Using it over 3 months now and it thinned out my hair everywhere on top if my head and I had a lot of shedding. I was told to continue using it and that I am losing the "bad unnourished hair" and that new, healthy hair will take its place, but if I stop using it I will get worse. My hair is on the darker side with greying as well. I was told to use the laser 3 x per week for 30 minutes a session. I got so panicked that I went back on the finasteride taking lower doses. I also use Rogaine as I have all my life. Any advice on what to do here would be appreciated.

I have been using mino idol and have some improvement in hair loss, but was wondering if the llllaser would work better. I have very fine thin hair but is dkbrown with gray. Started losing hair at menopause. I am 65 now do you think I am a candidate for the laser cap. My family mostly have thick black hair but my dad has very thin balding hair. Also there is alot of balding on my moms side of family.

Laser therapy would be beneficial in your situation. If you have been losing hair for a long period of time and are very thin currently, the Lasercap may be the best option. Otherwise, the iGrow Laser may be best suited for you situation. I am happy to discuss this during a phone consultation. Feel free to book that by calling 480-222-4247.

Hi, I would like to know of a natural product that can help stop hair lost and grow it back if possible. I cant take DHT blockers. Some of my symptoms are: 
-A little pain on my scalp 
- hair thinning on my fronthead 
- hairline decreasing 
Posted @ Wednesday, February 25, 2015 9:13 PM by Fausto
Hi Fausto,  
It really depends on why you are losing your hair. The pain is not normal. The could indicate a greater problem. I would need to know how long you have been losing your hair, what products you have used in the past, lifestyle and diet factors, blood type, family history, etc. I would be happy to discuss this over a phone consult. It is no charge and we can better understand why this is happening and how to fix it. Simply call the office or fill out the form on this page and my office will call you. Book a Phone Consultation with William Gaunitz WTS

I am female 53 and had very fine thinning hair . I asked for help from and was told to try the laser cap. After a couple of weeks i started shedding a lot of hair and i got really scared, i complained about that and was told that it was actually a good sign , it means it was working.  
Three months using the cap religiously , i can definitely say that the Laser Cap is surely working for me and I am very excited. I wish i was told to expect the shedding , it would have saved me a lot of stress.  
I have a new hair line and my new hairs are about 1.5 cm already.  
However , my partner who has black hair and thinning in the front , is not seeing any improvement. He is kinda giving up but because i of my great outcome, i keep pushing him to persist a bit longer.  
One thing i noticed is that my hair grows quick , like i need trimming every five weeks, and my partners hair doesn't need trimming often at all. Very slow growth.  
I hope it helps someone.
