What Is Keranique?

Keranique is a line of hair treatment products that promises an over-the-counter solution to thinning hair and female pattern baldness. The company claims that their Hair Regrowth Treatment contains the only available FDA-approved ingredient to regrow women’s hair, and is clinically proven.

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:

Step 1: Cleanse & Condition For Healthy Hair

Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo is a sulfate-free, paraben-free, and dye-free formula that includes keratin and ceramides, which company claims can promote hair and scalp health and result in stronger, thicker hair. The shampoo also claims to reduce buildup while promoting microcirculation.

The accompanying Volumizing Keratin Conditioner also includes keratin, and promises "body, dimension, and volume,” while containing a specialty protein that serves to stabilize the hair fiber, preventing breakage.

Step 2: Re-Grow Your Hair

Especially designed for women, since it’s important that they use the appropriate strength, Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment features 2% Minoxidil and promises “a serious solution to hair loss.” When used twice daily, we’re told this occurs by "promoting oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the hair follicles to make them stronger and help regrow hair."

Important note: While traditional droppers are still available through customer service or at retail locations, Keranique now provides an “Easy Precision Sprayer” in all of its kits. The company claims this exclusive feature is better at directing the product to treatment areas.

The company states that just as hair loss occurs over time and is a process, so too is hair regrowth, although they emphasize that hair regrowth can be typically seen in as little as four months.

Users should be aware that if the treatment is discontinued, normal hair loss will resume. Keranique also urges anyone suffering from a disease of the heart and blood vessels, or skin disease of the scalp, to consult with their doctor before using Minoxidil products.

Step 3: Protect & Style

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

Protect & Style Option 1:

Included in Keranique’s kits (both those sold on TV and online) is the Lift and Repair Treatment Spray, which is described as an easy-to-use product that adds instant body and bounce, protects hair from high humidity, and prevents frizz and flyaway for 24 hours.

Keranique claims the Lift and Repair Treatment is clinically proven in one application to mend 96 percent of split ends, while also preventing breakage. It can be used for blow-drying, holding, and setting, as well as protecting, controlling and finishing any style. It will also help improve the strength of dry, weak, and thinning hair.

Protect & Style Option 2:

Also available on their website or at retail locations, the Keranique Thickening & Texturizing Mousse promises to protect hair from heated styling tools that cause dullness, breakage, and damage. The company claims that their mousse incorporates flexible and substantive polymers to maintain body and hold without stiffness, and leave hair smoother to the touch, without weighing it down.

Does Keranique Work?

Keranique’s sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner, and styling products do not appear to contain any unique ingredients that regrow hair. However, the company claims all of its products are specifically designed for women with thinning hair or hair loss.

For example, their shampoo and conditioner include peppermint oil that will create a tingling sensation not found in other products, which the company claims is an indication of increased microcirculation. The company also states their shampoo and conditioner contain a blend of gentle anionics, along with nonionic Decyl Glucoside, which provides non-surfactant moisturization.

Keranique also indicates that its gel-based conditioner features a lighter weight than traditional cream-based conditioners, thus creating increased volume for women with thinning hair.

Finally, according to sites like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the product in Step 2 is the only one to include ingredients proven to combat hair loss.

Specifically, 2% Minoxidil is the only FDA-approved ingredient clinically shown to regrow women’s hair. However, it’s not unique to Keranique. The same concentration can be found in generic products that could cost less when bought in bulk.

It’s also important to note here that only Minoxidil is FDA-approved; not Keranique itself. With this said, the company emphasizes they’re the only one with an approved sprayer for targeted application to treatment areas.

Keranique’s Pricing & Refund Policy

Keranique’s products can be purchased through two different offers:

30-Day Risk-Free Trial Offer

On the system’s website, a two-month supply is available through a 30-day risk-free trial, less $3.95 for shipping and processing.

Those who don’t return their risk-free trial within 30 days (whether by phone, email, or through the Keranique online portal) will be billed two installments of $79.95, 30-days and 60-days after shipment, totaling $159.90. Separate state and local taxes may also apply.

These customers will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program, which means you will continue receiving a two-month supply of their products every 60 days, and your credit card will be charged $79.95 each month, plus $7.95 shipping and processing.

Keranique Infomercial Offer

The company also offers a four-piece 30-day kit in its 30-minute infomercial at a discounted price of $49.95. The same kit, as well as individual products, can also be found at national retail chains such as ULTA, although consumers will receive some additional free gifts when ordering direct.

Going this route, after the initial 30-day supply, you will receive a 90-day ‘seasonal supply,’ which will be billed in three installments of $49.95, plus one charge of $9.95 for shipping and processing. You will continue receiving a new seasonal supply every 90 days thereafter.

Every shipment of this 90-day season supply comes with a 120-day money back guarantee, less S&H. In comparison, risk-free trial customers have 30-days to contact customer service via 1-888-237-4131, email, or via an online portal, and return their product to avoid being billed further.

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

What Are Customers Saying About Keranique?

Since writing our original article, close to 80 HighYa readers had provided feedback about their experiences with Keranique, giving them an average rating of two stars. Many seemed to be pleased with their thicker, fuller hair, while common complaints related to less-than-expected results and high prices.

On Amazon, Keranique’s Clean and Condition Set and Scalp Stimulating Shampoo had a combined total of more than 700 customer reviews, with a higher average rating of about four stars. We encountered many of the same compliments and complaints found on HighYa.

From a company perspective, Keranique has been in business since 2009 and held an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, with nine reviews and nearly 200 closed complaints as of 9/14/17. No details were available.

Our Bottom Line About Keranique

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 might provide the same benefits as Keranique, but at a lower cost and without risk-free trials and autoship enrollment.

With that said, Keranique is a well-established company and is sold in retailers like ULTA and Sephora, and online at Nordstrom.com. They claim to have treated over one million women for thinning hair and hair loss, and we believe that their open line of communication with us goes a long way toward indicating their commitment to helping customers have positive support experiences.

    Extremely positive

    This product is amazing. My hair was thining rapidly. Why? Not sure, maybe nerves. I went to doctors and was told to take biotin. No improvement. I saw a commercial about Keranique one morning and thought what did I have to lose? Nothing.

    A few weeks after using the products not only did my hair grow back, but it came back healthier and wavy. I am very happy and continue to use and have added some of their other recommended products. My friends are amazed at my new hair. It grows so fast that I have to dye it more often.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Great product

    I've been a devoted Keranigue user for just over two years. I can't believe the difference in my hair. My hairdresser also has commented on the healthy condition my hair is in. I've decided to go naturally gray, however, it's just gorgeous. My hair is a platinum gray/blonde color and the feel and overall appearance is truly magic. This product is definitely the real deal. You won't be disappointed.

    Wonderful product!

    I started losing my hair a few years ago and have worn wigs ever since. I saw a lady at my beauty salon who I knew was bald on top and she had a head full of hair. I asked her what she was using, and she said Keranique. I went home and ordered it that day and have been using it for 5 months.

    My hair in the front is very thick, and the crown is filling in wonderfully. The new hair also came back curly, which is an added pleasure. I love this product and tell everyone how wonderful it is. I will be able to stop wearing wigs as soon as my hair gets longer for I keep it very short because of the wig. Thank you, Keranique, for giving me my hair back.

    Follicle Boosting Serum

    Hi. I love these products, and it is helping my hair to grow. It is still too thin, and I have been using it since August. I have received 2 kits so far, and my 3rd should be arriving very soon.

    I have just one complaint, and that is that 3 bottles of Follicle Boosting Serum does not last for the 3 months. As of now I have no more left and feel they have to be aware of this as I'm sure I'm not the first person to bring this to their attention. I use it as told, twice a day, and 1 bottle only lasts me about 3 weeks. I am not overusing it.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Awesome!

    First off, I want to let everyone know I am not getting paid to write this review. This shampoo and conditioner and treatment is awesome. I have been using this product since July 2017, so it’s been a little over 4 months, and my hair has regrowth and is fuller. I had two bald spots in the back of my head and I am so happy to say those bald spots are completely gone.

    Yes, I know I was skeptical too, but trust me, this really works. My before and after pictures are unbelievable. I give this product 1,000 stars and would recommend to anyone! I love it, so happy, and now my confidence is back!

    I like how it made my hair feel - smooth, full and healthy. From the first use, it feels like it gives your hair more volume. There's less hair coming out during brushing. It is definitely worth a try, and the results are stunning. I would absolutely recommend it.

    My positive experience with Keranique

    • South Chesterfield, VA,
    • Nov 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I am 53 years old and about two years ago, I started noticing my hair was thinning. Then as time went by, I saw more and more in the drain when I washed it. Around a year ago, I saw a bald spot forming on the crown of my head. I asked my hairdresser about it. She's been doing my hair for over 10 years, so she knows I've had a lot of health issues. She explained that it was probably happening because I have had several surgeries and procedures where I have had to be anesthetized, and I take some prescription medications that can cause hair loss.

    I had seen the commercials for Keranique and wanted to try it, but I was a little hesitant. I spoke to my mother, Shirley, about it, and because she knew how concerned I was about this, she gave me Keranique as a gift.

    I began the Keranique system four months ago. After the first month, my hairdresser told me she had never seen my hair look so healthy. I love the shampoo and the conditioner, and the Regrowth Treatment is easy to use. I am also using the Thickening & Texturizing Mousse and the Marula Oil Hair Treatment Mist. My hair feels and looks thicker, and I am already experiencing regrowth. The best part is I've been able to perm it and style it the way I want to. I am back to loving my hair again!

    I also have to praise the product specialists I have talked to on the telephone. I have talked to three, and all three have been so nice and helpful. They have been knowledgeable about the products, seemed to know exactly what I've needed, and have helped with pricing. The last specialist was female, Dorothy, and she uses Keranique products and told me things I was experiencing before I had a chance to ask her about them.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Increasing look of fuller hair

    • Franklin Park, IL,
    • Nov 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I started using the micro exfoliating follicle revitalizing mask about a month ago and what an improvement! My hair not only looks thicker and feels thicker, yesterday my husband complimented me on my hair becoming more beautiful again.

    Many thanks Keranique!

    Ok but not great.

    • Central, NJ,
    • Nov 14, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have fine hair with some curl, so I am always looking for a product that will make my hair look fuller, so I was excited to try this product.

    The shampoo smelled really nice, which is good because I can be sensitive to some fragrances. The conditioner was nice and thick but didn’t weigh down my hair. The spray was innocuous, and I saw absolutely no benefit from it.

    Bottom line is, it’s a good shampoo and conditioner but really didn’t make my fine hair look any fuller than it does with other higher end product.

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

    Great line of products!

    I'm currently trying to grow out my very curly, dry hair and used Keranique's line of products on top of my usual routine. I really liked the follicle boosting serum and scalp stimulating shampoo. After using these products for a week and taking the Daily Essentials Dietary Supplements, I definitely noticed an increase in hair growth and my fine hair does feel thicker. I haven't yet tried the Micro-Exfoliating Follicle Mask, but thinking of making a trip to Ulta now!

    The products I used

    The products I used in the Kit I didn't like, except for the hair growth treatment. The rest made my hair feel too dry. The product might be good for some, but not me.

    My hair has been thin to begin with, and a little bit every day, until the medicine Anastrozole doesn't have to be taken anymore, but I might have to take it for the rest of my life. Cancer is really scary to me and I don't want it to come back! The pills, on the other hand, have vitamins in them that I already take, so I can't afford them right now. I will have to send them back.

    Maybe later in the next year, I will. I'm so sorry that I had to tell you this. I will see how the hair growth treatment goes, and I hope it helps me!

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