Takeaway: 5th and Last Update: Dec 19, 2016. By the end of my 6 month trial with the iRestore Laser Hair Restoration Helmet, my hair has improved!

This is the final update I'll be doing in this series. It's been 6 months since I started using the laser therapy helmet (with a couple weeks off around month 4) The results of the trial are that my hair texture is definitely improved and the difference can both be felt and seen. The small hairs growing in where my hair was thinning most appear to be healthy and thick at the root. My hair in general feels denser, stronger, and more resilient, unlike before when the hair shafts were thin and brittle.

I can now run my hands or a comb through my hair without fear of breaking or pulling them out by the root. I've noticed less shedding on my clothes and bathroom floor versus prior to and just after starting the treatment. Even with my hair cut short, you can't see my scalp through my hair if I style it up, use a bit of product, or it blows in the wind. At certain angles and in strong light, it might not look as good, but those are fewer and far between now. While I'm disappointed that I didn't see a ton of improvement at my recession lines, the hair that I have seems to be improving in quality, and I haven't noticed any significant hair loss or thinning in the last few months. I am using the shampoo, leave in treatment, and oral supp in addition to the helmet and I think as a system it has made a difference.

I'm happy with the results and my improved sense of confidence and I'm glad that I started addressing the issue now before it got any worse than it did. I believe that while the treatment is helping me arrest or slow the progression of my hair loss, it remains to be seen if there will be any significant or noticeable regrowth over the long term. For now, I'll continue to use the product regularly and may even do an update after another 6 months has passed. But of course, if you subscribe to my channel you'll see me in other videos on a regular basis and can judge for yourself if my hair is improving or getting worse over time.

Thanks to everyone who has been supportive and asked questions. I hope I've helped you with your research and wish you well on your own journeys with your hair.

Exfoliate Your Face Professionally in Minutes with This Must Have Beauty Device

CosBeauty Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber Facial Spatula Review

Buy it on Amazon: CosBeauty Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber Facial Spatula [Affiliate Link]

Takeaway: Quick and easy facial peel tool you can use at home. Smooths, tightens, and improves product penetration.

The facial spatula is also known as an ultrasonic skin scrubber. It comes with a charging base stand, a power adapter with 4 ft cord, and an instruction manual. The scrubber charges wirelessly simply by placing it in the stand. This tool is designed to help you do at home exfoliation of your face, blackhead extractions, and assist product penetration for better absorption of creams and skin treatments. It’s really important that when you use this tool that your skin remains wet throughout use, otherwise the ultrasonic vibrations could cause friction burns and damage your skin. There are 5 modes on this unit and to cycle through them you press the power button: Sonic High, Sonic Low, Ion+, Ion-, and EMS. The sonic modes are used for facial peels. The ion+ mode is used for deep cleaning and pore extractions. Ion- is used for product penetration and EMS is used for firming and tightening the skin. After using this tool, I noticed a marked improvement in skin tone, clarity, softness, and a reduction of the appearance of pores and acne scars the following day. Continuous use of the tool helps the effects of the treatments have longer residual benefits. Treatments can be done as often as 1 week apart but no more frequently than that. With long term use, the effects of a single treatment reportedly can last up to a month. The spatula can be used with a wide variety of skin treatments to help keep your skin looking smooth, young, and refreshed.

Fluance RT81 Hi Fi Turntable Record Player Review

Fluance RT81 Hi Fi Turntable Record Player Review

Buy it on Amazon: Fluance RT81 Hi Fi Turntable Record Player [Affiliate Link]

Takeaway: Beautiful workmanship and amazing sound from an intro level and affordably priced turntable.

The turntable measures 16.5"W x 13.5”L x 5.5”H. It has a semi-transparent acrylic dust cover that sits atop a wooden plinth with a glossy walnut woodgrain finish. The platter is cast aluminum and belt-driven, and the unit comes with a thick rubber slip mat and AT95E phono cartridge. There is a little bit of setup like installing the platter, counterweight and balancing the tone arm, but the process is relatively straight forward if you follow the manual. The turntable can play both 33 1/3 records and 45s with the included adapter. The unit has a built-in pre-amp that can be by passed and Auto Stop setting that starts the spinning of the platter only when the tone arm is positioned over the record and stops it after the last track ends. You'll get everything you need to get started except for an amp, speakers, and records. I use the unit with Fluance’s Signature Series HiFi bookshelf speakers and love the sound that it puts out. The audio has excellent clarity across genres and little distortion with bright trebles and a full sounding bass. Results may vary depending on your pre-amp, amp, and speaker configuration, but overall the fidelity of sound was very respectable. This is my first turntable, and I think this is a great starter unit that will allow you to really appreciate vinyl as a medium worth having around.
