Keranique hair regrowth products contain 2 percent minoxidil. At that strength, minoxidil is FDA-approved to treat hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia and androgenetic alopecia when used regularly.
Androgenic alopecia, which usually affects men, and androgenetic alopecia, which usually affects women, are two possible causes of hair loss. Rogaine and many other hair growth products contain the same active ingredient as Keranique. Minoxidil's effects of stimulating hair growth and decreasing hair loss cease when product use ceases. Minoxidil does not treat hair loss caused by issues other than androgenic and androgenetic alopecia. It also does not work on areas of the scalp where hair follicles no longer exist.
