1. Charge It Up
Connect the micro USB cable to the compact UK plug. The top pin of the plug pushes up to fit the UK socket - note the word 'push'. Connect the other end to the helmet. Plug into a socket and leave for around three hours or until the light changes to dim green. The battery cannot overcharge but there is no value to leaving it permanently plugged in. A full charge is sufficient to perform approximately 6-7 treatments.
2. Insert The Foam Pads
Insert the foam pads inside the side and back edges of Theradome™ by first attaching the self adhesive velcro. The pads improve comfort significantly and we highly recommend you use them. If you have a larger head, find it too tight with all three pads inserted, try using just the two side pads. Note: the long pad should be attached to the inside back; over the speaker, not at the front over the lasers!
3. Ensure Your Hair And Scalp Are Clean
The ideal time to use Theradome™ is when your hair is freshly washed. It can be used on dry or towel dry hair. However, if you prefer to wash and style your hair in the morning and don't have time to use Theradome™ you can carry out your treatment later in the day providing you have not applied products to the scalp.
4. Put It On Your Head
Place Theradome™ on your head with the button at the back. The front should be just about level with your eyebrows. Press the button the voice will speak the number of treatments carried out to date. You are free to read, watch TV, browse, answer emails or even cook while your hair follicles receive a therapeutic dose of light therapy.
5. Take It Off Your Head.
The voice will tell you when the treatment is finished and turn off the laser diodes automatically. The voice will also tell you how long your treatment session has left every 5 minutes. If you want to stop the treatment before the end of the session, take it off your head and the lasers will turn off. Press and hold the button to turn it off completely.
6. Put It back In The Case
Ideally store your theradome in the compact case it arrived in. Take the foam pads off when you put it in the case. Store the charger in the slot inside the case so that it does not get lost or damaged. One of the most frequent calls we get from customers is for replacement charging cables when someone in their household has stood on theirs.
