Keranique / anyone had any dealings with them?

1 United States Review updated:

I had severe hair loss and to this day am unsure of the reason why. I had long hair down my back, for 8 months my hair wouldn't stop falling out. Out of total frustration, i went to the barber and had them cut it in a bob length. It went from thick to thin and long to short!

This year 2010, my husband ordered a 3 month supply of a keranique packet for me. I was upset because it cost $160. 00

After the 1st month there was a noticeable difference in my hair concerning length, thickness and strength. The shampoo and conditioner used together worked wonders for my hair! In about 2 weeks, i will be just finishing up the product and i will definitely order so more!

Oh, and i did kiss my husband for making such a wise choice. :)

I can email you before and after pictures if interesting in seeing my personal and truly amazing results. Carladesean@yahoo.Com

    Okay, so I told u guys that I'd get back to you & what I've found is that I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! Although, if read propoerly instructions say you won't see results until 4 months of use (as I stated before each individual is different), I'm seeing growth ALREADY & I'VE ONLY BEEN USING FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS!!! So, THANK YOU KERANIQUE!!! To all those struggling with embarrassing hair loss try this and try it until you've used it all up before you make a decission as to whether it works for you. I gaurantee it will. If it's working for me surely it can work for you!!! I'll upload befor & after pictures soon.

    Hi! I have been trying this product for about a month and my beautician and i saw a difference the first time we used the shampoo and conditioner. However, I did not want to be charged automatically 80-90 so I called the number that I received in my email and told him I wanted to send the products back and if I decided i wanted it I would order on my own. He gave to a return authorization and told me to send back by a certain date which I did and I was not billed. However, I canceled that card anyway and had another one reissued. Now the problem. I started using the hair regrowth treatment and also notice a difference in my hair, however about the 8th day of using it I starting having SEVERE Chest pain and thought I was having a heart attack. Well after 3 trips to my doctor, a cardiologist and another doctor we finally figured out what the problem was. The Minoxidil in the regrowth treatment. I immediately stopped using the product Saturday (today is Tuesday) and the pain has almost completely gone away and i no longer have the sharp pains shooting throughout my chest area that i was experiencing. I will continue to use the other products and may only use the regrowth treatment once a month. My doctor said that if used in smaller amounts it will not harm you. (I was using it twice a day as it stated). But he said if I use it once or twice a month I should be fine. I will wait at least a month and until the pain completely goes away and try it once a month. I do like the way my hair looks for the other products. Once caution though-in all my research (after the fact) it seems that once you start using it, you will have to use it for the rest of your life so that's something you may want to think about-for me I probably will because I have to shampoo my hair every week anyway so i may as well us the same product. Thanks for listening and sorry so long--Just A

    You all need to try Nioxin. It's expensive too but it really works! You have to use the shampoo, conditioner and scalp therapy and cant skip one of those steps, but it's much cheaper than this junk and you can get it at Ulta.

    I called to return the product BEFORE I opened any of the products because the shampoo, conditioner and another product contained ingredients I was allergic to. The lady was rude and said I should have looked into it more before I ordered. I have trouble reading due to nerve damage in my face which casued the hair loss in the first place, I explained this to them and told them that my spouse had to read the ingredients to me. I asked for a refund of the intial shipping charges and after a run around was told they would since the products had not been opened. I shipped the products back, after a few days no refund, I called customer service AGAIN, no note had been made regarding the refund, again I had to fight to get the refund of the initial shipping charges, I pointed out that it cost me nearly $12 to ship the products back. We will see if they follow through. I am very unhappy with their customer sevice representatives and their attitudes. They are snotty, hateful, disrespectful and very unhelpful. refunding the initial shipping is little to ask when returning UNUSED, UNOPENED product and treating customers with disrepect due to a disability is highly disrespectful! I don't recommend this company to ANYONE based on their customer service, they are out to get their money and do not give a flip about the customer.

    i also got ripped off, i order the free trial for 7.95 and at that time i told them that i didn't want to order any more and they said ok. less than 20 days later i saw where they had debited my account 79.95. i called my bank and they credited my account back. Now it has been close to 30 days since the bank credited my account. they said that i needed to provide them with the cancellation number. I have tried on several occasion to call customer service but has never got to speak to a live person. So now the bank is telling me that they were going to pay Keranique the 79.95 since i could not give them the inormation they needed to dispute the charge.T o make matter even worse I have not received the second shiment and it did nothing for my hair. I'm still fighting with my on charging my account back the 79.95> I will never go for the free trial scam again.

    I received the product and both bottles appeared to be conditioner even though one was labeled shampoo and one conditioner. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I suffer from hair loss as well and have not used this product but I was reading your reviews and wanted to shed some light on the minoxidil treatment. I have gone to a dermatologist because of my hair loss and he instructed me to use rogaine (which contains minoxidil) BUT only one application, 4 days a week. Minoxidil has many side effects for women when used in full dosage. I'm sure this product is great but they should really change their directions to keep from making women sick. 2 applications daily is just far too much

    I used Keranique and was very skeptical if it would work. I had two surgeries within one year, of which any anesthetic always causes me very severe hair loss, which is why I turned to Keranique. I only wash my hair once a week so within the 30 day time period I canceled (with no problems), not wanting extra product and also not knowing if it would help. I can honestly say that I fully endorse this product. I used the booster, shampoo and conditioner and highly recommend it. I plan to call and order product now that I know I like it. Nothing works complete miracles but there is a hugely noticeable difference in my hair.

    Minoxidil isn't just for men. A good female friend of mine is using it after losing hair due to a medication, and it's a lot cheaper than Keranique! I think a trip to a good dermatologist for advice and a bottle of minoxidil (or whatever he/she prescribes) is a better use of our money than the Keranique is, plus most insurance pays for the doctor visit!

    I ordered this product with a free trial period and was unable to use it. After returning the product unopened after receiving a RMA number from the company and sending it back via Priority mail. This company still charged my credit card for $85.54 10 days after receiving the product . I consider this theft and will be consulting my lawyer.

    My advice to ANYBODY!! BEFORE you go giving your money, credit card or bank account information to people you have not done business with and are not familiar with-PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check with the BBB-(Better Business Bureau) and see if these companies are members and if they have any complaints-especially unresolved complaints. And of course check the reviews. We are not that desperate that we have money to just give away!! I'm NOT!!

    The active ingredient in this stuff is the EXACT same ingredient that's in Rogaine. My dermatologist told me to use the men's strength Rogaine foam once a day. Forget all this foolishness - just go to the drugstore and buy Rogaine.

    First of all, I want to say that I am true NON Believer. Normally! I read Kerinique's spill. I read the reviews and the horror stories. Then, I reluctantly decided to order the trial anyway. The plan was to use it for a couple of weeks and send it back before I had to pay the full price. Of course, I forgot to make the call and return the product. I called. I got through the very first time. I was a day late and, I believe, $80.00 short, plus the other $80.oo that he said I owed. Afterwards, I figured I better use the product since I have to pay $160 for it. Eventually, I tried it. I was severely balding in the crown. My barber would be ever so gental when cutting in that area. (I'm a female who wears my hair very short due to hot flashes). Now, I have my hair back. My short cut looks very nice and FULL. I have no reason to be ashamed anymore. I sure hope Kerinique is reading - this is great advertisement. I am unemployed now and can't afford to purchase anymore product (hint hint).

    I bought this product and have been using it about two weeks now. I only purchased the conditioner and shampoo and the root booster. I am happy so far..maybe my imagination but I do believe my hair is looking a little fuller already. But I did not buy the product directly, I purchased it from and therefore no scam...just an outright purchase from an impartial company.

    I first heard the infomercial last night for Keranique. I am one of those who got sucked into the Hydroxytone scam with auto ship. We actually were able to speak to a real person when I called to cancel. After a gazillion questions I fInally stated, "I don't want it and I won't pay for it. I don't like it so don't send it anymore!!! Would you believe the current ads state that Hydroxatone is now sold in stores. The original infomercials stated that they had sold 1 million jars--can you imagine how much money the company is bilking the women who have become caught up in this scam? This is truly a buyer beware product!!! The infomercial is carefully worded--A risk free trial-- of one expensive bottle- that they don't want you return after it has been opened. Also they want you to contact them before you return it, to try to intimidate you into keeping it along with a monthly ship. They are barracudas who are ripping off the public. I hope I have learned my lesson. At least I checked it out on the computer before biting. CW in Virginia

    I had just ordered Keranique. About an hour later a representative called me from the number that they gave me in the recording. I specifically asked him to expalin to me again if I am only being charged the $7.95 s/h trial for 30 days. He said that is the only charge that I will be charged until after the 30 days are up, then if I don't call to cancel before that time and send in the empty bottles then I would be charged $79.95 next month and each month after that. I will wait and see if this is all true and get back to about my experiencel. Some of you had some bad experiences and maybe it depends on who you have and how well they do their job. I guess I will find out. I will check back with you all later when I receive the product. Good Luck!

    I haven' t bought their products, yet because it IS off of TV, is reported to be so expensive AND because their hair treatment is made with 2% Minoxidil, it seems I could go to the drug store & get the same exact thing for FAR less. Many of these so-called, "free" offers with little to no way to return them on TV when you realize the "freebie" is nothing more than a loss-leader into buying ridiculously over-priced products that have your credit card number & often have so-called, "easy return policies", yet then will continue to keep billing you & sending you their wildly over-priced & often substandard products (Again, I haven't even called their phone number, yet did go to their web site & it looks MUCH like another I saw for teeth whitening that I ordered online, that later kept billing me, there was a return number, yet it had been disconnected, etc.)

    If you want to use a product with 2% Minoxidil, you can get them at your local drug store w/ some shampoo with antioxidants, also available in any drug store (& the fancier, really great ones are still less & can be bought & BTW returned through legitimate places, which I really like, is expensive, but have great reviews & is not $200, not even for the entire kit of their best, and there are plenty of great reviews!)

    This just seems like another "buyer beware" to me! I've had to go through a LOT of things through my bank for a place that hauntingly looks all to familiar to this. There is NO price given to you when you go to their web site & none on the TV ad! That should be a red flag right there!

    Also, no MSDSs for this product, which are required for all products, esp. those making claims that they are FDA APPROVED!

    There is also no size listed at all!

    Also, with no reviews, an unknown company, would you give some new, unknown company a credit card when you are already seeing that a month or two supply is going to be over $200 for something that is described much like brands I see in convenience stores & the local drug stores & add a treatment w/ 2% minoxidil, also available at local drug & department stores.

    A 3-MONTH supply of a 2% minoxidil product at a drug store, or through a reputable online dealer is roughly $15-35. Add a great shampoo & conditioner with antioxidants and a good anti-frizz serum for another $20-50 & you should be in better shape AND have the same, if not better results!

    You should also know what minoxidil is for & be sure you need it! Checking with your health care provider to rule out causes other than age-related hair loss (also called androgenetic allopecia). For example, if you have a thyroid disorder creating your hair loss, you could waste a LOT of time & money.

    There are many causes of hair loss & not all of them respond to Minoxidil!
    Sufficient iron & amino acids, such as Lysine can make a huge change, are inexpensive & with time, work wonders! These two nutrients, according to some studies, are responsible for up to 90% of women's hair loss!

    It is best to check with your health care professional, or at the very least educate yourself, on the reasons for your particular hair loss before randomly buying products! The $200+ for this product will be more than paid for by checking first to find the reason for your hair loss! Often, balancing hormones, eating right & perhaps adding some supplements to your diet (certain amino acids, vitamin B6, herbs like saw palmetto and green tea, minerals such as zinc, etc. in the right balanced doses can all help, yet only if you need them.) Balance is the key!

    There are no quick fixes & the $200+ I saw on a prior & positive review may seem wonderful, yet if you aren't loosing hair because of something to do with minoxidil, then you just wasted some time & money...

    Best to know WHY you have hair loss before just going out and spending a bunch of time & money to find out that this product may not what you need. Again, best to check with your health care professional before getting into any of this stuff.
