Thinning hair can occur as a result of so many factors, but often, it can be traced back to one element. A naturally occurring chemical in your body called DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, can be triggered by external or internal factors to make your hair follicles shrink until the hair falls out. Fortunately, the Keranique Deep Hydration Scalp Stimulating Shampoo includes DHT-inhibitors, an advanced ingredient that is rarely found in comparable shampoos.

Rachel Raczka, for Women’s Health listed The Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo as the best shampoo for preventive measures, writing, “Keranique’s unique blend includes a DHT-inhibitor, which aims to penetrate the scalp and follicles to deliver a keratin amino complex, developed to add resilience and protection. This one can contribute to improved texture, healthier strands, and yes, even new growth.”

    Does the shampoo lather? I have used other shampoos that don’t and unfortunately it increased my hair loss (i used for a year and half) I don’t want to go down that road again…..I don’t have hair to spare. 😧

      Hi Michelle,
      Although Keranique is sulfate and paraben free, there is a slight lather to the shampoo. Also, we offer a Deep Hydration Formula, sulfate and paraben free. The Deep Hydration formula is fortified with Keratin and Panthenol to provide combability, detangling & smoothing without weighing the hair down. You can see more here:

      I have been using the system since October and although I have not seen any new hair growth the texture and appearance seems a lot better than it was. I use the deep hydration formula of shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo does lather but not a lot and you can feel the tingle. I highly recommend the deep hydration conditioner I have very fine hair and this totally de-tangles. I have had natural curly hair my entire life and have had a hard time taming it. It looks pretty good and I love the smell of the shampoo and conditioner

      Hi Diane, 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. So it’s really a good sign! Hair grows slowly – on average hair grows about ½ inch per month. It has to emerge from the follicle before it grows from the scalp, so there may be a short period of 3 – 4 months before you will begin to see a visible difference. Keep in mind, as the Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil begins to take effect and regrow hair, it is important to realize that it can also help stop further hair loss by revitalizing and stimulating hair follicles.

    The article said that Karanique can be used as a preventive to results caused by dihydrotestosyetone., but what if the damage to the hair follicles had already been done? Can it reverse the damage it does it just prevent it?

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Sudan,
      Thank you for your question. Many Keranique products not only helps to prevent DHT damage, but also helps to reverse the damage caused by DHT.
