Welcome to Month 3 in a series we call “True Life: I Use Keranique.” This series will highlight real women’s experiences with our products that help regrow thinning hair in women, as well as help your hair appear thicker, fuller, healthier and stronger. The Keranique System has helped so many women, and we know it can help you too.
I have now completed my third month using Keranique products. I continue to be impressed by the results and quality of the products. As I mentioned in my Month 2 blog, I have noticed some initial hair regrowth near the front of my scalp. There is definitely a difference in the volume of my hair, and I am having fewer bad hair days. I can still see my scalp (my hair is very thin), but there is definitely less visible scalp than there had been before I started. I was realistic before I started using the Hair Regrowth Treatment, and I was not expecting that my hair would all of a sudden become thick and full (I have fine hair). I expected that there would be an improvement in the amount of hair, and that is what I have seen so far. I am hopeful that continuing to use the Hair Regrowth Treatment will lead to increased growth.
After three months, it has definitely become a habit to apply the Hair Regrowth Treatment every morning and evening. It is something I do automatically now. I am used to the dropper application, and can easily apply it to the needed areas. I make sure that I massage it in to my scalp gently so that it doesn’t drip towards the front of my face. I wash my hands immediately after applying, and if I have washed my hair, I let my hair air dry for a few minutes before I use the thickening mousse. That allows the treatment to absorb before I apply anything else to my hair. This method has worked out well for me.
As an aside, a few weeks ago, I got caught without my Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo,and Volumizing Keratin Conditioner, so I had to use another brand of thickening shampoo and conditioner. I thought, “How much different can it really be?” Well, it turns out it’s a lot different. The other shampoo left my hair feeling “stripped” and the conditioner made my hair feel too soft. I couldn’t wait to get back to using my Keranique products. My hair just feels healthier and thicker when I use them.
At this point, I thought it would be helpful to share some of the tips and things I have learned from using the Keranique products over the past three months. So, here they are. (1) The first several times you apply the Hair Regrowth Treatment, do it slowly. It takes a while to get used to applying the solution with a dropper. If you do it too quickly, it may drip down the front of your face. I put a few drops on my scalp in the areas where it is needed, and then I gently rub it in with my fingers. Be sure to wash your hands after applying. (2) Let the conditioner stay on your hair a minute or so before rinsing. This has given me the best results. My hair is soft but not weighed down. (3) On my short hair, three to four pumps of the Thickening and Texturizing Mousse is sufficient. I apply and then gently brush or comb it through before drying my hair. (4) Be sure you dry your hair shortly after applying the mousse. I found that if my hair air dries with the mousse on it, I don’t get as much volume.
I am excited about my results so far, and I look forward to sharing my experience with you after using the products for four months. I would be happy to answer any questions from anyone who is considering using the products or who is currently using them.
