We get a lot of questions about Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment and whether it is effective or not. In the past week we have been hit with a deluge of them, including:
- Does Keranique Work?
- Is Keranique a Scam?
- Is Keranique Safe?
- What are the Side Effects of Keranique?
For whatever reason, this seems to be the treatment of choice right now. Never mind hair treatments like transplants and Propecia. This is the one that everyone is asking questions about. As a result, we’ve decided to do a full article on it, discussing how effective it is and answering your questions. We have also asked our readers to review Keranique and we have provided some Keranique reviews ourselves.
To see these, simply pay a visit to our Keranique reviews page. To learn more about Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment, read on.
Is Keranique a Scam?
It’s important to get this one out of the way first. The internet is very distrusting of anything that promises anything, and indeed anything that involves the movement of money. The “Is Keranique a scam?” question pretty much applies to every single product or service out there. Just swap the word “Keranique” and you can guarantee that question will be in the top ten Google searches.
It’s quite amusing actually, as it works for anything. It seems that when the internet is not asking, “Is [Insert Name of Celebrity] gay?” they are asking, “Is [Insert Product/Service] a scam?”. Trust us on that one. Just type, “Is [Name]” on Google and look at the search terms that appear. You could say that we have a one-track mind, but we actually have a two-track mind, because we’re either convinced that someone is not as heterosexual as they claim or that something is not as legitimate as it claims.
Anyway, enough about that. We’ve detoured a little bit.
So, is Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment a scam? Well, no. That’s the short answer. It’s not snake oil. It’s not out to rip you off and leave you hair mangled mess. In this day and age, advertising standards agencies ensure that companies don’t make big promises that they can’t at least back up in some form or another. That doesn’t apply as stringently to the online world (where “miracle cures” are always just a banner ad away) but it applies to TV and product packaging, and Keranique is a product primarily advertised on TV.
They have studies and research to back up their claims and there are also customers who will back them up. Whether that means it is effective for you, however, is a different story. But just because something doesn’t work for you does’t mean it’s a scam. After all, that’s how medication and supplements work. It’s why they have such long side effects and it’s why one particular medication may be the answer to one person’s concerns, while it could be nothing more than a placebo to a second person and something toxic to a third.
The question you should be asking is “Does Keranique work?” and that’s what we’re going to address next. And if that wasn’t a genius segue, we don’t know what is (even though we just ruined it).
Does Keranique Work?
At the time of writing, if you punch “Does Keranique work?” into Google you get a site that claims, rather resoundingly, that no, it does not work. As far as that site is concerned, Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment may as well be water branded as fairy dust. But there are a few things to consider when looking for reviews. Firstly, someone with a bad experience is more likely to voice their opinions to the world.
The internet has turned us into angry reviewers. When we find something we might recommend it to a few friends and we might use it regularly, but we tend not to post positive reviews. But if we are offended by a product or a service, then everyone is going to find out about it. We can use cable providers as an example. How many of you would post a positive review along the lines of, “I’ve been a customer for years and have had no problems.”? Not many, right? You probably wouldn’t even know where to post it. But when you encounter a problem, when they lower your opinion of them and make your life difficult, how many of you would now rush to leave a bad review?
Bad reviews exist because nothing is perfect and because a high proportion of reviews are only focused on the negative. At the same time, you also have to factor in the fact that many positive reviews could be (we’re not saying they are) posted by the company and its affiliates. That doesn’t seem to be a huge problem in this industry, but it has become a problem elsewhere.
Simply put, reviews aren’t always reliable. If you’re going to pay attention to them, make sure you can trust them and that there is no bias either way. On our Keranique reviews page, for instance, we tried to remove the bias and compile as many honest reviews as we could. But we had to ask our readers and then decide if we were going to take their word. So, even that wasn’t a flawless method.
So…Does Keranique Work?
If you take reviews out of the equation, you have a product that contains ingredients that have been shown to be effective in regrowing and conditioning hair. We have talked about these ingredients a lot on this site. You can find such articles on our Hair Growth Pills section and our Hair Growth Supplements section.
There are ingredients that we know can help to strengthen hair and they are contained in Keranique shampoo. The main addictive ingredient is minoxidil, which also goes by the brand name Rogaine and is available in many generic formulas.
There are many topical treatments out there that consist purely of vitamins and minerals. In our Beard Growth Pills and our Eyelash Growth page we discussed a few of them. They are safe, moderately effective and completely harmless. It’s important not to put Keranique Hair Growth Treatment in the same category. It is a medication.
Is Keranique Safe?
Keranique Hair Growth Treatment is just a shampoo. So it can’t cause any problems, right? Well, not really. That seems to be the general consensus, but it’s a dangerous misconception to have.
As mentioned above, Keranique Hair Growth Treatment contains minoxidil, which does have a long list of side effects. Keranique shampoo also contains other potentially harmful ingredients. We’re not scaremongering. In fact, we think it is one of the best treatments out there when it comes to trading off potential effectiveness versus side effects. But those side effects do exist.
What are the Side Effects of Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment?
So, what are the side effects of Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment? Well, these include the side effects associated with minoxidil use. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not safe. Bear in mind that minoxidil has been FDA approved, so these side effects are considered to be rare or uncommon at most:
- Inflamed Scalp
- Swelling of Extremities
- Chest Pain
- Rapid Heartbeat
- Unwanted Facial Hair Growth
- Weight Changes
If you experience any of these, you will want to stop immediately. The side effects of minoxidil don’t pain a pretty picture of what you might turn into, so you will want to put a stop to that.
