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.

    It works!

    I just wanted to share my experience of using the Keranique products. I have thyroid issues that caused my hair to thin to the point of my scalp showing through. I was like every female desperate to find something to help! I started taking vitamins and tried a few other hair-growing products that did nothing.

    I read all the reviews on the Keranique products and thought I would try them out. That was three years ago, and I use the regrowth spray every day and the shampoo and conditioner every other day. I'm not saying your hair will grow to the floor, but with the product my hair has thickened and is very manageable. I give this product a 10!

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

    This is an amazing product! I am not even finished with my first bottle and my hair is thicker, fuller, longer and the thinning, as well as hair loss has not returned! Truly amazing and I am very, very pleased. The mask makes your hair feel like silk and shiny! I HIGHLY recommend this product if you have any hair issues like I did. My receded hairline has filled in as well! I am loving my hair again!

    It really works

    I started using this because I noticed that I was really losing a lot of hair every day in my hairbrush and in the shower and around my temples. My wedding was coming up, and I really didn’t want my temples to be looking like I was going bald. I started using this, and my hair is growing back and it is starting to have a thickness about it that hasn’t been there for a really long time. When my hairdresser was fixing my hair for my wedding, she asked me what are you using because your hair is soft and shiny and it’s thicker. I told her I was using Keranique and her response was "so it really works." All I can say is at 60, my hair looks and feels great again. Thank you.

    Amazing product

    I have thin hair to begin with, and I noticed I was losing quite a bit in the shower and when I brushed my hair. At first, I thought it was stress, or maybe my shampoo. I've seen the commercials for this product several times and thought nothing of it, until I started losing my own hair. Out of desperation, I made the call and placed my order. Within two months of using the product, my hair was growing back. It's thicker, more manageable and no longer falling out. I love the products; it truly does work. However, you must be diligent in following the instructions if you want to see results. I would recommend this product to anyone experiencing hair loss.

    Keranique products are good

    I had to discontinue the vitamin supplements as I was growing hair in unwanted places; predominantly the facial area. I continue using the shampoo, conditioner, the spray on treatment and the blow drying formula for my hair. Merry hair does continue falling out, but there’s always new growth, and I do not have bald spots.

    So much volume!

    I have been using this product for about two weeks now. My hair feels so silky soft and smooth, and the volume is amazing. I have been able to go 3-4 days between washes and my hair still looks great. Shampoo and conditioner smell great too! I love this product and would definitely recommend!

    Keranique products improved my hair

    • Georgia,
    • Apr 4, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I had been using products that caused my hair to fall out. After trying so many products and vitamins, I decided recently to take the plunge and boy am I glad I did.

    The girl that answered the phone was so knowledgeable and helpful and cheery and encouraging.

    When I received my order, the packaging and products are beautiful and impressive. My hair is so much prettier and shiny with each shampoo. No more breakage and hair falling out.

    Since this is my first shipment, I am still waiting for new hair growth, but my hair is growing like a weed and is so healthy and I get compliments. I am a walking Keranique spokesperson,

    Thank you Keranique and your second-to-none Customer Service Department.

    It is a really good product!

    I have had problems with my hair; it has been thinning and even comes out. I was up late one night and saw one of these guy's commercials and decided to order the product. Trust me, I have tried several things and nothing worked. I started using this one and my hair grew back and is longer in the back. And I love the Mousse and the Lifting Sparta, it is the best if you have problems with your hair thinning or not as full as you like. Try this, if it doesn’t work you can always stop using it! I've been using it for several years! Good luck, and you are going to love how your hair feels!

    Work in progress

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Mar 21, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I’ve been using this product for at least a year now, and I can say it has thickened my hair all over, except the one place where I truly needed it, my edges. The shampoo and conditioner along with the other products are great. I just think that my edges were far too gone, but I still use most of the products. Using something new to boost my edges, and hopefully, this will make a difference so with that I’m still a work in progress.

    Great

    It was no scam for me. It costs, but the product worked great for me. Just treat it like a regular shampoo. Just because it's for regrowth you just don't put half of the bottle on your head (I'm just saying). The spray is daily (three times a day) on that particular area. It took 3-4 months for my hair to grow back.
