Kérastase releases Women’s Hair Regrowth Serum: Densifique® Minoxidil
Last year, Kérastase, the leading purveyor of women’s luxury hair care products, released a revolutionary new product to treat women’s hair loss and even promote regrowth. Known as Densifique®. this formula was infused with Stemoxydine, a stem cell based agent that promises to deliver 1700 new hairs in 3 months. For women dealing with hair thinning and loss, defined as losing 100-150 hairs a day, this “hair density activator” is a remarkable breakthrough.
Different things can affect the lifecycle of your hair, contributing to thinning or loss such as your diet, hormones, age, environment and pollutants, pregnancy, genetics, menopause and yes, even over processed hair. Hair follicles get smaller and smaller over time. The smaller they are, the shorter the amount of time your hair grows. Eventually, when strands of hair fall out, they’re not replaced with normal new hair, but instead by thinner, finer strands of hair.
To date, minoxidil is the only agent that has been FDA approved to be used in the US for hair regrowth, which means the european-born brand (owned by L’Oreal) had to restructure their American version of the product. Now, Kérastase is introducing Densifique® Minoxidil to a selection of leading salons across the country. The scientists at Kérastase took what they learned from their groundbreaking formula using stem cells and infused that with an industry known regrowth agent, minoxidil.
Minoxidil is a vasodilator that relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. You can find it in generic form or in products like Rogaine for Women. The agent helps 60-70% of women improve their thinning or loss by either preventing loss, stopping it and in some cases promoting new growth in follicles, depending on what stage you are at during hair loss.
Experts say that after 90 days, the product, when applied to the roots, can promote the growth of more than 1500 new hairs. The product works by regenerating the roots, targeting the areas of the scalp prone to hair loss rather than the actual remaining fibers. It is encouraged that clients use the product for at least 3 months to see real results. Like many products, it needs to be used consistently to continue to work.
