The True Costs of Keranique Hair Regrowth for Women

February 4th, 2015

Keranique may not be as unique as one of its dramatic and seemingly unnecessarily urgent TV commercials lets on. (If your last name begins with the letter “R,” they’ll probably take your call today as well as tomorrow.)

The women’s hair regrowth product touts that it contains FDA-approved minoxidil. But the truth is that the same can be said for several generic brands that sell for much less than what you’ll end up paying for Keranique after a 30-day trial period ends and an auto-shipment program begins. That is, unless you cancel the program within 30 days. But some consumers suggest on online message boards that canceling can be a difficult process.

How much more could you expect to pay for Keranique compared to a similar generic brand that also contains minoxidil to treat thinning hair? Over the course of three months, probably somewhere in the range of $100 to $150.

That’s because Keranique’s auto-shipment program charges $79.95 per month plus an additional $7.95 for shipping. A generic brand such as Walgreens generally charges less than $50 for a 3-month supply — and you can pick it up yourself.

Do your research before signing up for any free trial that may lock you in for future shipments you may not want.
