There are rituals you may do every day that can contribute to hair loss and hair thinning. It’s important to know the difference to appropriately treat your condition. To do that, you should understand your hair at its most basic level.


What is hair made up of?
Each strand of your hair is made up of three layers. Inside is the medulla, surrounded by the cortex, which is surrounded by the cuticle. The cuticle is what protects the core medulla of the shaft of hair. The more you perm, dry or dye your hair, the more damaged the cuticle can become, leaving the medulla susceptible to permanent damage.


Normal Hair Growth
Hair health is also influenced by its roots. Hair grows out of a follicle on your scalp. The healthier your scalp, the healthier your hair. That’s why it’s important to nourish your hair with a healthy diet, strengthening products, and sometimes even hair supplements. Hair normally grows about 1/4 inch every month and has a life cycle of aboutsix years.


Hair Thinning
Hair can begin to thin out if it becomes seriously damaged by:

  • Bleaching and excessive coloring
  • Perming or chemically straightening
  • Excessive brushing
  • Daily blow drying or use of a straightening iron

Hair thinning can also be caused by stress or other external factors. The Keranique Follicle Boosting Serum is formulated for women experiencing this kind of thinning, as it supports scalp health and nourishes each strand of hair.


Hair Loss
As we age, hair follicles can stop producing hair, leading to more severe hair loss. Female pattern hair loss is genetic, called androgenetic alopecia. Keranique’s Hair Regrowth System is formulated specifically for this level of hair loss. The system improves the health of your hair from all aspects, from shampoo, to conditioner, to the hair regrowth treatment with Minoxidil Easy Precision Sprayer. This product contains the only FDA approved ingredient to regrow hair.

    The minoxidil is in a spray bottle now? That is much easier for most women I would imagine. Do u still have to use it twice a day? Do u leave it on for a certain period of time? Do u shampoo first? Can hair be dirty or have any products in it?

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi! Yes you still use it twice a day, you can shampoo and condition your hair before applying the hair regrowth treatment if you wish, but you can still apply to dirty hair!

    I ordered Keranique. It seemed to work until I started the second bottle of spray, which seems to do nothing.
    What’s wrong?

      Your hair will feel silkier and shinier as soon as you start using the Keranique® Shampoo and Conditioner. Your scalp will feel invigorated, and with each use, you will be improving the health of your hair. Hair regrowth takes time and requires patience. Continued use of the Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil for at least 4 months is usually needed before you start to notice regrowth. In the meantime, our other products in the Keranique system start working immediately to help repair and prevent further hair damage. With the use of the Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil, during the first two months, after beginning the treatment, a small percentage of women may temporarily shed a little more hair than usual. Note that this is part of the process and the slight extra shedding is only temporary; it indicates that the follicles are making way for new, healthier hair growth and that the product is working. Remember to keep using the Hair Regrowth Treatment every day, twice a day, morning and night. Important to note: everyone is different. Some users notice some results in as little as 2 to 4 months, but to see best results, it can take from 6 months up to a year. Once you’ve experienced initial results, you will continue to see improvement in your hair.

    Can I buy your product for hair thinning in Australia??? I did try to buy it online quite a few times with NO SUCCESS. Then I rang the Australian phone number, & the Lady said it was could only be purchased in USA. I asked her “why did they send me an email if I couldn’t purchase it”. She said she didn’t know. Kindest Regards Joyce Hubbert. P.S. Can you please tell me why this is so??? Also is there anywhere in Australia that I can purchase it????

    I have had one highlighting about 5 months ago. I wear my hair up all the time. I don’t blow dry or curl or anything, it is breaking all over the place it’s really l terrible and that’s with the thinning. I am using your product going on about 2 months and I love it even though I haven’t seen much change yet. I am 62 years old and genetics isn’t a factor. Both my parents had great hair till they died. I am very careful with brushing but I am shedding like a dog. Maybe I need supplements. The thinning has happened before when I became very ill. I am healthy now. Please help me.

      Hello! We always recommend consulting with your doctor or specialist before use of any products.

      Keranique® Hair Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil is used to treat certain forms of hair loss for women 18 years old or older. The checklist below will help you determine if it is right for you:

      • Generally thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of your head
      • You are experiencing a widening part
      • Members of your immediate family or extended family, have experienced hair loss
      • You notice more hair than usual in the shower drain, on your pillow, or in your hairbrush
      • You notice your pony tail is getting thinner
      • You’ve changed your hairstyle to cover up your hair loss

      If two or more of these statements are true, you may be experiencing hair loss.

      Do not use if you have patchy hair loss. This treatment will not prevent or improve hair loss related to pregnancy, the use of some prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe nutritional problems, the recently discontinued use of birth control pills, low thyroid states, chemotherapy or diseases that cause scarring of the scalp. Nor will it improve hair loss due to damage from the use of hair products which cause scarring or deep burns of the scalp or hair grooming methods such as cornrows or ponytails that require pulling the hair tightly back from the scalp. Do not use if pregnant or breast feeding. Keep out of reach of children.

    I have been losing my hair for several years now. I am told by a hair stylist that my hair will not grow back. That number one mine is genetic and number two mine is caused by stress. And I am wasting my money trying to get my hair back. I have been wearing wigs they are very uncomfortable, and always afraid they are going to blow off in the wind.

    • Keranique Hair says:

      In certain types of hair loss, a combination of heredity, hormones, and age causes a progressive shrinking, or miniaturization, of the hair follicles in your scalp. This can shorten the hair’s growing cycle. Over time, as the active growth phase becomes shorter, the resting phase becomes longer. Eventually, there may be no growth at all. Researchers believe that this FDA-approved ingredient works in part by helping to reverse the miniaturization process. By enlarging miniaturized follicles, the growth phase of the hair cycle is prolonged, allowing the hair to become longer and thicker-looking. It may also work as a vasodilator to help stimulate blood flow in the scalp in order to get more nutrients delivered to the follicles. With more follicles receiving more nutrients and more in the growth phase at the same time, it is possible to see improved coverage of the scalp.

    I started using your products in June and after only 4 months I have little hairs growing in that are already about 3 inches long. I was concerned at first about the tingling feeling, but I know it’s working

  9. Tammey Williams says:

    Hi I just started using Keranique I had previously been using another hair regrowth shampoo and conditioner with success . I have seen a lot of regrowth around my face. My concern is the top of my head I am not seeing much regrowth, my reason for trying Keranique.
    As I said I just started using Keranique and I lost more hair than I had been loosing.
    I can also say that most items on the checklist pertain to me. I Can you please tell me why I lost more hair than I have been.

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Tammey! For hair regrowth we suggest not only our shampoo and conditioner but our Keranique Hair Regrowth System. Keranique® is your advanced solution for thinning, flat, lifeless hair or if you are experiencing hair loss. Created specifically for women, these products deliver outstanding results for ladies of all ages and with all hair types. The Keranique® Regrowth System follows a simple three step process: 1) Cleanse & Condition, 2) Treat and 3) Protect & Style. It can take up to 4 months to start to see results. Also, hair shedding at the beginning of the treatment may happen for a small percentage of users, but it’s temporary (usually lasting from 2 – 6 weeks at most), and this can actually indicate that Keranique® is working.
