Baldness and hair loss are problems for men of all ages, and hair loss is also a condition that affects women. There are a number of different reasons why we begin to lose our hair. Some are medical conditions, and these can often be treated, but one of the main reasons for hair loss is something we cannot combat: the ageing process. This is not to say that lost hair cannot be restored – it can, and successfully in many cases – just that if you start to lose your hair, it’s most likely because you’re getting older.
If you do find you are losing hair and are concerned about it, you should consult a doctor. You may have conditions of the scalp, or alopecia, or it could be a sign of an underactive thyroid. All of these – and more – will benefit from medical attention. However, if you are simply looking for a way to restore lost hair, or give your thinning hair a boost, there are plenty of products on the market you can look at. Which is best? We took a look at two of the main contenders for you.
Keranique and Nioxin
These two products both sell very well and have many satisfied customers, so why should you choose one or the other? Well, to begin with, each works in a different way. Be aware that each is used as a shampoo application – so that’s easy enough – but here’s the good bit: many shampoos and other treatments contain ingredients you really don’t want, and which could irritate your skin further. Both are free of parabens, sulfates and artificial scents that you don’t want, so what’s the difference?
Here is what is in Keranique:
- Keravis hydrolysed vegetable protein
- Keravis seed extract
These are the main ingredients, and are designed to help replenish hairs lost by way of additional amino acids.
- Natural extracts
Ensulizole is an interesting ingredient as it forms the basis of sunscreen, so can protect against UV rays to the scalp.
Reasons to Buy
To get to the point, here are the main benefits of each:
- Cleans and stimulates the scalp
- Fortifying vitamin ingredients
- Volumizing conditioner
- Created to restore and add growth
- Botanical formulation for maximum effect
- Sooths and combats dryness
- Adds protein to the scalp
- Removes pollutants from scalp and hair
From those points, and given that neither contains any potentially harmful ingredients, it is clear this is not a decision that is going to be made lightly, so which should you choose?
The choice is yours, but given the number of satisfied users they have, each of these treatments performs the duties it is designed for. They are both easy to use and have natural ingredients, and are not expensive, so we recommend you do a little research into them further, and see which one you think can help with your hair loss.
