My hair has always been “fine’, but I had at ton of it, so that was its saving grace. I love to keep my hair long, experiment with color and highlights and have it styled for fun. It was horrible and shocking for me to discover that a particular prescription I was taking started to cause hair loss.
My hair was everywhere.
I absolutely panicked! How could I reverse the damage this drug had caused to my beloved hair? Watching TV one night, I saw an advertisement for Keranique, a hair care system for women with fine, thinning hair. The deal was sweet! For just a few bucks, I could order the entire system and cancel if I didn’t like it or it didn’t work for me.
Well, here’s my review…
The trial package was generous. Two full bottles of shampoo, two volume sprays, and a foam to apply to your scalp and a comb.
The shampoo and conditioner have a minty smell and I must admit that the body of my hair looked and felt thicker after a few uses, but nothing was happening to stop my hair loss or make my crown look fuller. In fact, I was losing more hair! I figured it would take time to start working, so I kept using it–and I kept losing hair!!
As an “experiment”, I decided to stop using the system for a while and just stick with “regular” shampoo and conditioner. (I just used up all of the 1/4 full bottles in my shower- a mix of Dove Oxygen,a bunch of L’Oreal Sulfate Free shampoos and some cheap V05 2 in 1 that i had for quick mornings.) After a few days, I noticed a considerably less amount of hair in my brushes, on my shower drain and all over my house. I couldn’t believe it! Here is a product marketed tho women who have thinning hair and it actually causes hair loss. I was DUPED!
Dealing with Keranique’s customer service was terrible. They charged my credit card despite the fact that i had cancelled my account. I called my credit card and in turn they called Keranique. (It seems they have this problem all of the time.) The representatives at Keranique were stubborn and rude. I finally got things worked out and consider it a lesson learned. When something is too good to be true, it probably is!
Have you had the same or perhaps, a better experience with Keranique?
