Does Keranique Really Work?

Does Keranique really work?Keranique claims that it’s specifically for women with thinning hair, and it promises to make it thicker and fuller. It’s not every day that you find a product that is catering just to women. The usual case is a product that is formulated for men, and then they add women as an afterthought because most of the attention of hair loss gets placed on the men. While it may be true that men are effected more often and more severely with male pattern baldness, women also suffer, many in silence, as their hair gets thinner and thinner and eventually is noticeable. But can this really help turn it around?

Overview
Men have hundreds of products to choose from to treat their baldness, but for some reason women don’t have a lot of products vying for their business. Maybe thinning hair doesn’t seem like as big a problem as going bald, but it can evoke the same sort of psychological repercussions in women as going bald does in men. It can lead to low self-esteem, low self-worth, and a bad self-image. It can alter the way a woman wears her hair, and can even effect how often she goes out in public. Men can just put on a hat if they’re very self-conscious, but women are expected to show of their hair as part of their overall presentation.

The Claims
Keranique claims that it can give you fuller looking hair in a short amount of time. They also so that it is formulated to work specifically with a woman’s biochemistry, and that it is the only hair loss treatment approved by the FDA. They also state that it is pH balanced, and that it doesn’t contain any sulfates. Part of their kit is also designed to help you protect your hair from the damaging effects of styling, including excessive heat and brushing and combing.

The Cost
You can try Keranique for one month by paying just the shipping and handling of $8. If you like it, it’s $80 a month, and they send you two months worth of it every 60 days. If you don’t like it, you must call them and cancel your order before the 30 days is up.

The Commitment
If you’re going to try this out, commit to giving it a proper trial. Make sure that you use it every day as directed so that you can see whether it is worth keeping, and whether it is worth the price to continue using it. If you like the results you’re getting, it is not an unreasonable price to keep your hair looking its best. If you’re unsatisfied with it, you’ll definitely want to remember to cancel your order, because it is a price that you wouldn’t want to pay unless it’s effective for you.

Evaluation
Keranique is getting positive reviews, but you have to be sure to ignore the people that are reviewing the billing process, not those that are reviewing the product itself. If you get it and you don’t like it and you forget to cancel the next shipment, you aren’t going to be very happy. If you get it and like the results you’re getting, you likely aren’t going to come back online and write a review on it. So you have to realize that for every one positive review you see for this, there are likely many more that aren’t being reported.

Overall though, people are saying that it does improve the quality of their hair, making it appear fuller and more healthy, and they’re happy to stay on with it month after month. Since the kit contains four different elements to it, they’ve got you covered for washing and conditioning the hair, as well as treating it with Minoxidyl, and even attempting to boost your hair follicles to give your hair new life.

Why Is My Hair Thinning?
There are many factors that contribute to hair loss in women. It could be due to hormonal imbalances which end up making your hair follicles smaller. It could be due to genetics, which you don’t really have a lot of control over. It may be due to a stressful job or home life, or it could be that you are unknowingly taking poor care of your scalp and hair. It may even be nutritional imbalances, such as a lack of protein, or an iron deficiency.

Does Keranique Really Work?

We’re giving Keranique the Thumbs Up, because when you look past all of the positive reviews from affiliates and the negative feedback from those that forgot to cancel the trial, what you’re left with is mostly happy women that are getting good results and have better looking hair to prove it. But at the end of the day you won’t know if it will work for your hair until you give it your own at-home test.

Our Recommendation
This is definitely worth a try, because it is one of only a handful of just-for-women hair loss products out there. They’ve gone to great lengths to get this to work for as many women as possible, so there is a strong likelihood that this will work for you. There is no guarantee, which is why it’s nice that they let you try it out with just a small shipping and handling charge. Thirty days should be plenty of time to decide whether it is working for you, and if you’re not liking the results, you’re not obligated to stay on with it.

Stumbled across this article whilst looking for something to help out with my thinning hair.
I’ve come across the Keranique brand before but never really looked in to it due to the cost.
From reading your article it seems i was right not to, given that i could get other products for half the price that last twice as long!

I’m always a little skeptical when companies rope you in to using the other products in their range to ‘ensure best results’ etc
I think i’ll stick to my guns and stay away from this one.
Thanks for the great post :)

Rogaine for men or women provide better results, have more of the active ingredient contained in this product, for a fraction of the price.

Michelle June 27, 2015 at 2:54 pm

I was told that if you start using Rogaine, you have to use it always! That once you stop using it, it quits working. Is that not true? I’m looking for something that works but doesn’t cost an arm & leg. Also, was informed that it can make hair on face grow, on the back, etc…I def. don’t want that!

Trying the product Now! I have High hopes aside from all the negative feedback. I just received my first batch yesterday and washed, conditioned, & used the treatment last nite. I understand that each individual is different, so I’ll update you guys with my progress in a matter of days. Oh and i read somewhere that they sign you up to an auto-ship system so it keep billing you’re card for the next batch and so on… just to make you aware.

Received my first supply of Keranique. My hair is long but has started thinning on the top some. I am so pleased with my hair today after using Keranique last night. When I walked into the office, I had so many compliments. Wanted to know what I did different to my hair. It is very shiny and full. I love the product so far

Just started using the product today so lets see how this goes.

CeCe September 8, 2012 at 12:52 am

I’d be open to trying a new product…and when it comes to feeling good about yourself (when you see a product working), money is no object. Growing hair back would be priceless! The auto billing is a definite deterant to trying any product in my opinion. At the end of the 30 day period, by the time you say you want to cancel (if not happy with the product), you’ll be billed again for the product as I cannot imagine they can shut off IMMEDIATELY the auto bill process and you’d not from that moment of cancelling be charged again. Auto bill is an awful way for companies to make money, and it’s taking advantage of consumers, that would otherwise love to try a product. It’s never a no obligation purchase. More companies than this one are using this tactic…and will forever make money even on cancellations. It’s so upsetting…they should offer another option. Really!?

Reply

Avie March 9, 2014 at 7:06 am

Yes, they SHOULD offer other options versus UNDERHANDED, clearly dishonest tactics like “Auto-Bill & Ship”! Moreso, people themselves should revolt against such companies and their products. If the public ceases to fall PREY, like ducks in a flock, to such offers then and only then will corporations get the message LOUD & CLEAR! And not until a mass majority of individual consumers do just that! No joke! JUST DO IT.

Barbara Eileen Freitag May 18, 2014 at 5:01 pm

I ordered the kit and then decided it was too expensive and I called Customer Service. I said I wanted to cancel and he asked if the price was a problem. I answered yes, and he changed the cost and auto bill serve process. I will get one month supply. Beforehand I thought it would be that I couldn’t cancel, but if I wanted to cancel I could. I was surprised by the courtesy and ease of cancelling if I had chosen to cancel.

Reply

Jess May 30, 2015 at 4:25 am

Actually if you look at the fine print it tells you wht to do if you dont like tit within the 30 days. So therefore if people read everything BEFORE they decide to try it then they will know what to do.

Reply

Ann K November 8, 2014 at 5:57 am

I realize that this is a old post. But yes for one this is a way to make money. But if it really works and your hair and looks of it are important than it is a benefit to keep it coming. Laziness to call and cancel is just that… lazy. And there is no cancellation fee. They don’t make money off that. I still would like to know if this product really works. I don’t want it to appear thick. I want it to be thicker. Anyone care to Le me know please!

Reply

carolyn May 6, 2015 at 5:28 pm

The product does work. My hair is amazingly thicker! Been doing for 8 months. . They dropped my price when I called to cancel.. very helpful! When you brush it out to curl it you can see the growth vs the old… well worth it.

Carol October 21, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I definitely will not try due to “subscription” purchase required. I don’t want anyone automatically billing my credit card unless I am SURE I really want it. This is a deal-breaker for me.

Talked to a rep ..Said I still would be chargedfor both!!! I am about to call the BBB…. Even if product were ok…. should not be treated this way!!! Joan B. Szucs

Joan Szucs & Reader’s:
BBB (Better Business Bureau) is great idea! But often it takes more steps:
1) Complain to your Consumer Protection Bureau if one in your area (check city hall/village hall.)
2) Complain to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and retain a copy of your complaint(s).
3) Go to your bank have them do either 1-2 things: a)Cancel your card for a new card, b)Cancel card and account (best idea). And setup new account & card(s) {inconvenience but well worth peace of mind}, c)Setup a special account (new deposit required) just for such purchases that you can either deposit funds manually (best) or transfer exact amount of needed funds from another account

Continued:

4)Go to state office where companies are required to file their ‘Registered Agent’ data. Get that agents identity information. Send a “Cease & Dissist” letter (best to have Consumer Lawyer write or advise you) requesting cancellation and any refund owed you or else legal matter will ensue.
Alternate for companies with no ‘Registered Agent’:
Have attorney as stated above, contact corporations legal representative in same manner as. described above with a “Cease & Dissist” letter.

i think you folks should read the reviews on amazon.com. It’s not a pretty sight (site) at all. looks like the biggest complaint? the price, and this product having the exact ingredients as Minoxidil – which is actually 1/5th the price of the Keranique.

While I like the way it makes my hair look, and feel, I can’t say, after nearly four months, that I’ve had any new hair growth. I’ve used the products as directed, and just received my 3rd shipment. Unfortunately, it will be my last. I can’t justify spending this much money on a product that doesn’t deliver. I’m certain others have had better results, I guess it just doesn’t chemically agree with me.

Keranique is the answer to my prayers for an effective hair loss treatment. I was utterly dejected every time a treatment failed. It looked like the end of my hair until I started using Keranique. It’s the best way to stop hair loss and re-grow hair. It’s safe too and not too expensive.

Marguerite November 2, 2014 at 6:33 pm

I ordered Keranique from an ad on Dr. Oz and when it arrived is when I learned that it would be auto-renewed for approx. $80 every month. I called customer service without using the product and to cancel any monthly renewing charge the day after it arrived. I was told I would only receive part of my money back, with shipping and handling deducted. I had to speak with a supervisor to get the entire amount back. Also beware, when signing up for this product by phone one is hit with a long barrage of offers for other products and if you stay on the phone to press the “no, not interested” digit over and over, it can take up to 1 hr. stuck on the phone. This is a product that the Dr. Oz show should be wary of just for these reasons.

Reply

Ann K November 8, 2014 at 6:16 am

Funny that you say Dr.Oz promotes it and another person says he don’t. All companies will try to sell you everything under the sun…especially when you are doing just a trial offer. Can’t blame them. But it shouldn’t take that long to cancel since you did it really early. But at least you got it done. I don’t agree with the person that gives you 10 steps on canceling accts, calling this person..That person…Congress and making it sound like you should be changing your identity just to cancel. I have done it before with other stuff and yes sometimes you talk to someone else cause they will try to talk you in to not canceling. I wish more people would post about the product and less on the amount of it after the fact or how everyone auto charges when you do something like this online. Same with Proactive. .example. Sigh

I looked at their website, with claims of four-inch hair growth in a month. At that moment I knew this product was completely BOGUS. Also, the photos online show a hair color change which makes the hair look thicker around the part. I wouldn’t trust this company OR this product!!!

Sheila April 2, 2015 at 4:25 pm

Does this product REALLY work, is the question. BUT, if you aren’t wise enough to stay away from this company, you will be asking yourself this question: Was it REALLY worth it? Was it worth Keranique taking $82.52, $17.97 out of my account SEVERAL TIMES in a months period!! WARNING: I HAD TO HAVE MY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD CANCELLED AND A NEW ONE ISSUED BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT STOP TAKING MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND WITHOUT EVEN RECEIVING ANY PRODUCT TO TOP IT ALL OFF!!!
DO NOT EVEN TRY THE PRODUCT FOR THEIR SO-CALLED 30 DAY FREE TRIAL! It’s just a scam to get the information that they need to get the information for your debit/credit card! When I called them during the 30 month trial period, I told the man that I was speaking with that I liked the shampoo and conditioner but that it was too much for me to afford. He told me that he would give me a discount of the products and also on the shipping. He told me that I would be receiving the products at the discounted price of $36.52 and that I would receive the products the same date every month and charged the same time every month. Needless to say, HE LIED TO ME!!!!!!!! When I finally went online and saw what they were doing I was FURIOUS!! And I felt like a fool as well. The $36.52 that he quoted me, was actually $82.52 and I was charged that amount twice in the month of February. Along with taking $17.97 twice out of my account!

Zahn April 7, 2015 at 4:57 am

Hi everyone, I am a senior and feel my hair thinning. I thought about trying this but wn I read how much it would cost per month, I changed my mind. I have burnt once before with this type of dishonest dealings and had to call the BBB th have my money refunded. No, I will NOT be ordering this. Even if it worked, I could not afford it with my income. Thanks to all of you.

I like the WEN cleanser also but cannot afford that either and do not need most of the other products and they lock you I to a deal where they take the money out of your account also. I do not like that.

If they are so sure of their product they should not feel the need to do business that way. If people like it, they will order it…….

I found this product being sold on the Ulta website for thirty bucks. It comes with three bottles, the shampoo, conditioner and another one for setting hair or some such thing. It is supposed to be a 30-day supply.
If you have an Ulta store near you, I would look into it if you really want to give this product a try without having to worry about going through the company directly and them billing your account multiple times etc.
I hope this information helps those who still really want to try it without the hassle.

The product totally works. My hair is amazingly thick now. I have used it for 8 months now.. when i called to cancel they lowered price . When you go to comb it out you can see all the new growth then the ends are thin. This is well worth the money. (Never had issues with customer service. )
