About Keranique

Keranique is an “As Seen On TV” line of hair products that promise an over-the-counter solution to thinning hair and female pattern baldness. The company claims that their products are the only available FDA-approved and “clinically proven” hair loss treatments specifically for women.

Stating that hair loss is a natural part of the aging process, Keranique claims that their treatments thicken existing hair, fortify follicles and encourage regrowth in just 120 days.

How Keranique Claims to Work

Keranique is intended to be used as a three-step treatment. Customers can choose between several product options, all of which are sulfate-free, to customize each step in the process.

Step 1: Cleanse & Condition

Keranique Revitalizing Shampoo includes Keratin to strengthen and thicken hair, and claims to reduce buildup while promoting “microcirculation.” Keranique Volumizing Conditioner also includes keratin, and promises “body, dimension and volume.”

Step 2: Re-Grow

Customers can choose from two options to help optimize their hair growth cycle: Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment or Keranique Follicle Boosting Serum.

Re-Grow Option 1:

Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment features 2% Minoxidil and promises “a serious solution to hair loss” when used twice a day by “promoting oxygen, blood and nutrients to the hair follicles to make them stronger and help regrow hair.” Users should note that if the treatment is discontinued, normal hair loss will resume.

Keranique also urges anyone suffering from disease of the heart and blood vessels, or skin disease of the scalp, to consult with their doctor before using Minoxidil products.

Re-Grow Option 2:

Keranique Follicle Boosting Serum is for women who cannot, or choose not, to use Minoxidil. The serum is described as lightweight and alcohol-free, and is fortified with peptides to strengthen hair, repair split ends and add volume. Keranique claims that use over time will result in hair that is visibly denser, fuller and thicker.

Step 3: Protect & Style

Keranique offers two different styling products that promise to help hair look thicker, fuller and healthier:

Protect & Style Option 1:

Keranique Amplifying Lift Spray is described as an easy-to-use product that adds instant body and bounce, even in high humidity. It can be used for blow-drying, holding and setting, controlling and finishing any style, and will help improve dry and weak thinning hair.

Protect & Style Option 2:

Keranique Thickening & Texturizing Mousse promises to protect hair from heated styling tools that cause dullness, breakage, and damage. Keranique claims that their mousse is scientifically blended to maintain body without stiffness, and leave hair smoother to the touch.

Does Keranique Work?

Keranique shampoo, conditioner and styling products do not appear to contain any unique ingredients that address hair loss.

While the shampoo and conditioner feature keratin, a popular hair care ingredient for strengthening follicles, Keranique shampoo also contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, which is known to be harsh on delicate strands.

The products in Step 2 are the only ones to include ingredients proven to combat hair loss. Minoxidil is FDA-approved as a hair loss treatment. However, it’s not unique to Keranique. The same concentration (or stronger) can be found in generic Rogaine products for a fraction of the price. It’s also important to note here that only Minoxidil is FDA-approved; not Keranique itself.

The Follicle Boosting Serum is unique in that it contains aminexil (also called kopexil), an ingredient that is reported to work similarly to minoxidil, but without the risks to those who suffer from circulatory or heart disease.

Pricing & Refund Policy

A two-month supply of Keranique is available through a free 30-day trial, less $3.95 for shipping and processing.

Important note: Although Keranique claims to offer two different Step 2 and Step 3 options, the only products displayed when we attempted to check out were the Hair Regrowth Treatment, Scalp Stimulating Shampoo (presumably another name for the Revitalizing Shampoo), Volumizing Keratin Conditioner, and the Volumizing Lifting Spray.

In other words, it appears that you can’t change the contents of your original shipment, and you’ll be required to contact the company after the fact if you’d like either of the options for Steps 2 or 3.

If you are unhappy with the products, you must call 1-888-237-4131 within two weeks of receiving your shipment. Those who fail to cancel within two weeks will be billed two payments of $79.95, 30-days and 60-days after shipment, totaling $145.85. Separate state and local taxes may also apply.

By purchasing Keranique through their risk-free trial, you will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program, which means you will continue to receive a two-month supply of Keranique products every 60-days, and your credit card will be charged $79.95 plus $7.95 shipping and handling each time.

The same 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee covers every shipment of Keranique; allowing customers to return their products, but only within two weeks of receiving the shipment.

It’s our experience that free trials are rarely free, often luring in prospective customers into signing up for autoship programs that can be difficult to cancel.

We’ve also found that “As Seen On TV” products seldom live up to their hype, leaving customers to struggle with inflated shipping charges and poor customer service.

If you’re interested in trying Keranique, the individual products can be found at Amazon through a variety of sellers, and occasionally at a discount.

What Are Customers Saying About Keranique?

Taking a look at Amazon, Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment appears to have an average of a 2.5/ 5 stars. Those who have purchased the product on Amazon have not experienced Keranique’s 30-day free trial.

While reported to work, a common complaint is that Keranique is over-priced. The Hair Regrowth Treatment contains a Minoxidil concentration that is .5% less than generic Rogaine, which is available for $20 at Costco.

Elsewhere online, the most common complaints reference unexpected charges from the Keranique autoship program, poor customer service, difficulty processing refunds and the high price.

Other Keranique products, including the shampoo, conditioner, mousse and spray, receive an average of 3.5-4 stars on Amazon, which vary depending on customers’ hair type and styling preferences. In other words, while most of these are positive, you may not experience the same.

Bottom Line

For those looking to regrow their thinning hair, Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment does contain Minoxidil, which has been proven to work, even in cases of hereditary baldness. However, Minoxidil has been approved by the FDA for almost two decades and is readily available in many other products that can provide the same benefits as Keranique, but at a lower cost and without free trials and autoship programs.

    Not worth it

    This system is too expensive, and they take advantage of the shipping system hoping you forget about the charges. Be warned, do not sign up for this system. You can get better results from drugstore products or go to Target.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My hair is not growing back, no results

    I'm sorry, but I've been using Keranique products for seven months, and my hair has not improved. There is a lot of breakage on the right side of my head and the back. I tried the two Minoxidil spray with no results. Now I'm trying the follicle serum and so far, still no results. My hair is dry and brittle. I'm doing a lot of work to receive results. The products need a lot of improving. I wish I could get a refund. I just wanted thicker hair, not shorter hair (different area).

    I'm sorry, but I wouldn't recommend these products. Too much money lost for very little results. Maybe if I try one more month of serum and if it continues to not work I will discontinue using it. Please, I do not want anyone going through losing hair. My hair isn't growing back. I'm sorry, but this a rip off. Hair looks terrible.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not happy with the Follicle Boosting Serum

    I have only been using the Follicle Serum for a short time, but I do not like what it does to the surrounding hair; frizz, frizz, frizz. I have curly and also frizzy hair to begin with, and on top of that I live in Florida and we have such high humidity that no one here has a good hair day until late November. Also, it interacts with the very light and soft hold hair spray I use and makes it sticky and somewhat brittle. I have used a product called Frizz-Ease for 20 years to keep the frizz at bay, but it doesn't work while using this product. Definitely will not purchase again.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    These products work amazing

    I have been using the set since the 22nd of May, and I can tell you my hair is fuller, thicker and easier to deal with. I have been using the shampoo, conditioner and the oil in combination with the daily vitamins. The directions explaining how to use these products are plain and clear. I love this product!

    Crown area very thin, both sides of my hairline receding

    • New Jersey,
    • Aug 2, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I'm an African-American mature woman and I had an accident that required me to take a lot of medications. I believe the medications were part of the cause of my hair thinning on my crown as well as my hairline receding. In January 2017 I decided to try Keranique regrowth, and it has worked wonders. I use it every day, and my hair has completely filled in. I don't need to be concerned with being able to see any baldness in the crown of my head. It is completely filled in, as well as the sides of my hairline are back to normal and my hair is curly as it was when I was a child. My hair has a thickness that it didn't have when I was a child. Thank you Keranique.

    I enjoy using the products, it's rich and nourishing to the hair

    • Bowie, Maryland,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I would recommend this to anybody. I started using these products last year, and I already see the result in my hair. It's more manageable and thick and looks bright and shining. I would definitely recommend the products to my friends and family. Good luck using the products and I hope you will feel as I did, and that it's helpful. Thanks.

    Amazing product

    Turning 40 was tough in many ways, and my thinning hair made it harder. Thank goodness for Keranique! Not only has this product done wonders for my hair and my self-esteem, but when I lost a shipment, the customer service was amazing, and they sent another one right away. LOVE this product!

    Never again!

    • Georgia,
    • Jul 25, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Never respond to any trial offer saying you only pay $3.99 for shipment or so. It is a TRAP. Once you provide your card info, you will be charged hundreds of dollars, and most likely never get it back! This "company" is nothing but a bunch of swindlers, who must be placed in jail for life.

    Very happy

    • Queensland, Australia,
    • Jul 13, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I'm on my fifth week of using this product. I'm very happy to report my hair is fuller and thicker. My hair was thinning and always shedding when brushed or washed.

    My hair would never grow past my shoulders, but today my hair is now past my back bra strap and looks fuller and feels thicker.

    It's more in proportion and beginning to look amazing.
