It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what causes hair loss when there are numerous things that could be the reason. Some of the most well-known causes are diet, age, hormonal changes, and stress. One potential cause that is less talked about is inflammation of the hair follicles.

What is Folliculitis?

Folliculitis is inflammation or infection that can affect one or more of your hair follicles and can cause temporary or permanent hair loss. It is usually caused by staph bacteria or fungi and can be contracted from someone who has an infection. Most normal, healthy people have staph bacteria all over their bodies that do not cause infections or symptoms. However, sometimes staph bacteria can cause an infection that can potentially become severe.

How to Treat it

If a doctor diagnoses you with folliculitis, there are ways to treat it. Some treatments for inflammation that doctors may recommend include steroids, antifungals, or immunotherapy. For treating hair loss, your doctor may recommend minoxidil. Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment contains 2% minoxidil which is used to help women regrow a beautiful, thick head of hair.

      Hi Fiegan, You can continue to wash your hair as often as you do normally using Keranique shampoos and conditioners. Just remember to see the best results with our Regrowth Treatment, you need to apply the minoxidil directly onto the scalp in problem areas twice a day, morning and night, on dry or damp towel dried hair. Please let us know if you have any other questions and we’d be more than happy to help 😊
      Thank you

    I’m a 75 year old woman and I think that inflammation IS the cause of my hair loss. I had a dermatologist recommend that I use Keranique… which did briefly, but stopped when there was only a minor improvement. I DO think that my scalp is a major player in my hair loss. I’ve considered Keranique products, but read in several places that once one stops using it, the hair begins to fall out, so am cautious. I’ve recently started taking vitamins to support hair growth (CVS). it would be lovely to achieve a somewhat fuller head of hair. Thank you for your efforts on our behalf.

      Hi Faye, our only product that is not for use while pregnant or breastfeeding is our Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil. We recommend using our Follicle Boosting Serum as a substitute, which works to revitalize your hair follicles and thicken your hair. We have included the Follicle Boosting Serum in place of the Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil with our Keranique Thicker, Fuller System.

      Hi Rita, thank you for your question! Remember that hair loss is ongoing, so using products that help repair or help with regrowth has to be constant. If you stopped using our Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil, hair follicles revert back to their original state of inactivity and your newly grown hair will eventually fall out as part of your natural shedding process. Just like working out, you can’t work out for a month and expect to keep the results forever. Continued use of our Hair Regrowth Treatment is needed to sustain new growth, but once you start to see results you will WANT to continue using Keranique!
      Thank you
      Keranique
