We noticed eons ago from our own experiments that "diffused" (uncollimated)laser diodes (with lens caps removed) work better than "dots". We also noticed that most pro devices remove the lens caps and have "diffused" diodes, whereas many of the mass-marketed crappy ones still have that lens cap, constraining the footprint and sucking away power.
This will help you if you want to see the rough size of a diffused diode at the heights of 1cm, 2cm, and 3cm...
With LLLT devices for hair loss, diode spacing is CRUCIAL. You want to minimize gaps and overlaps to get more of the scalp into the "window of energy" for the best results possible!
This is a template to help you determine how many diodes you need to make your own DIY laser device for hair loss (or to help you better determine how many diodes you need on the laser helmet that I make -the Laser Messiah II!).
Look no further if you want to build your own LLLT device for hair loss! This is part III, "Wiring of the Laser Messiah", now in a FREE (of course) downloadable PDF! This has a GREAT OVERVIEW of how to wire pretty much ANY laser device, so please check it out!!!
Jdp710's UBER SIMPLE design to help "get your foot in the door" of laser therapy! This was super cheap to make, and probably leaps and bounds more effective than most mass-marketed devices out there! Why? ...Because of COVERAGE!
This was going to be a travel device -but this entry was never finished by Lemming! It's got some pictures so you can see what he was attempting, but I'll have to one day check around the forums to see if he finished it!

I have fond memories of my "Golden Boy"! Obviously, this was nowhere near as effective as my Laser Messiah I or Laser Messiah II -but 68 diodes in a moveable cluster is enough to get your foot in the door! Plus, this thread has some nostalgic value for me, so I'm leaving it in place!
People are more conscious about health effects the "unseen" waves around them -particularly EMF radiation and Wi-Fi. So, all those laser diodes up on your head must be generating a lot of electromagnetic fields, right??
WRONG! The brunt of EMF radiation is generated at the POWER SUPPLY! Don't wear the power supply on your head and you are fine!
Think L.E.D.s are as good as laser therapy/LLLT for Hair Loss? DEAD WRONG. L.E.D.'s are indeed useful for skin and health -and probably show some merit against hair loss- however, it is *not* the same thing as explained in my blog entry.
It takes REAL LASERS to make a profound impact on hair loss for several very real reasons explained in this article!
"OverMachoGrande... do you know the connection between lasers and DHT?" People are simply waiting on the edge of their seat to hear how lasers fit right in to what they think they know about hair loss!
Yes, I know the connection. If you want to read the answer, you'd better be prepared to "let go" something you may have been conditioned to believe as an absolute truth, though, and the answer may not be what you expect!
The Laser Messiah is the ONLY DEVICE that follows the best principles and key concepts of laser therapy / LLLT for hair loss! Also, it's the only laser helmet that is fully-customizable, upgradeable, and user-serviceable!...why would you want anything else?!
This was my original article from 2009 announcing that I was making the Laser Messiah II! This has great comparisons between the Laser Messiah I (the one you build with the free instructions) vs. the Laser Messiah II (the one I build, and the greatest laser helmet for hair loss that has ever been created!).
This is going to be THE. HOTTEST. SECTION. on this site! It's the section that you will come back to and check often!
My helmet is the best, but there are things you can do to make the best EVEN BETTER. I've been giving these to my customers for years via email (and you can email me for them if you are a customer and don't have a copy!), but it's time to make public multi-media presentations for them!
This is the place for cutting edge, natural solutions for hair loss --and it has a great forum! Home of the Ortho-Nutritional Supplement Line (formerly know as the "Top Six"), which is a great supplement addition for LLLT users!
When you pulse laser light at an extremely high rate, it causes MORE of a biological response/stimulation than would ordinarily occur. Certain frequencies do this better than others, and the main one that people associate with fighting hair loss is 8.9 khz. John Steele created one that can do this for helmets up to 450 diodes --and this is a BIG DEAL and has never been done before!!!
