Review of Keranique’s Thinning Hair Solution for Women Kit
Hair loss can be an embarrassing experience for men, and luckily, there’s a whole realm of hair loss solutions designed and marketed just for balding males. However, seldom discussed is the prevalent issue of thinning hair in women.
Women’s hair loss can be caused by fluctuating hormones, poor diet, physically traumatic events such as child birth, and even hair styles that stress follicles by pulling too much on individual strands. Doctors estimate 50% of women will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. Despite this, there are fewer products on the market offering solutions to women’s hair loss that specifically address the feminine body chemistry. This inspired Keranique to develop a new line of products for women that promises fuller, rejuvenated locks using chemical formulas it claims will help balance a Ph levels within women’s bodies.
The Keranique system differs from many male-targeted products, such as Rogaine, because it offers a kit including one product to encourage hair growth and three products designed to volumize thin hair, rather than the typical approach of just offering products piecemeal that either address hair loss or hair appearance but never both.
The kit’s four products include:
- Revitalizing Shampoo - A formula that is sulfate free and includes Keratin and Panthenol (a.k.a. Vitamin B5) to improve texture, luster, and thickness of hair.
- Volumizing Conditioner - Designed to keep hair silky and de-tangled without weighing it down with heavy chemicals. The conditioner breathes life back into limp, oily, or thinning hair.
- Keranique Follicle Boosting Serum - A spray bottle that has peptide and stem cell ingredients to stimulate the scalp and encourage healthy, shiny hair. It also contains Kopexil to reduce the appearance of thinning hair.
- Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment - A dropper containing a 2% formula of Minoxidil, the first FDA-approved medication clinically proven to regrow hair. Minoxidil is the most common hair re-growth stimulant on the market and functions as the active ingredient in other hair loss products such as Rogaine/Regaine, Vanarex, Mintop and Loniten.
The Keranique plan requires twice-a-day application of Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment to the scalp and use of the remaining three products each time the consumer washes her hair. Each kit is designed to last sixty days and is automatically replaced via the Keranique Beautiful Hair Auto Ship Program. Results from the Minoxidil treatment can show improvement in hair growth in as little as two weeks.
Online reviews of the product have been mixed. Some users enjoy the benefits of the shampoo, conditioner, and serum on thinning or particularly oily hair. They experience less hair fall and even regrowth. Another body of reviews complains that the only active ingredient in the kit is Minoxil, which can be purchased over the counter in products like Rogaine for Women at the same potency levels for a lower price.
Whether or not the Keranique kit is for you, it represents an interesting approach to addressing feminine needs in the hair loss market. Keranique may indeed restore hair or slow thinning, but the only permanent solution to hair loss available is hair transplant surgery.
