L’Oreal is at it again and the company recently released a hair care product which is said to revive dormant hair cells.
Kérastase Densifique is the newest and most talked about hair loss product in the market.
It is said that the product could reverse hair loss and thinning problems.
Demand for Kérastase Densifique is surging and salons have already pre-orders their bottles of the hair solution which is to be used for a recommended period of thee months. The cost of the entire treatment is certainly not cheap as it costs about £300, which translates to about $475.
Does Kérastase Densifique Work?
There have been many products which have been touted as the ‘new and revolutionary’ hair loss revival treatments, most of them have performed dismally. Most of the hair loss products in the market rarely produce desirable results. So what makes Kérastase Densifique different from the rest?
Well, L’Oreal has used stem cell technology with the product. As you are already aware of, stem cell products have been on the increase and this is because the treatment focuses on regenerative therapy.
The idea behind Kérastase Densifique is to act as a stem cell based treatment to revert baldness and hair thinning. According to L’Oreal head of scientific affairs Patricia Pineau, the cosmetic product respects the natural regeneration of hair which is why it is so efficient.
The main ingredient in Kérastase Densifique is stemoxydine which is a molecule that attempts to increase the level of oxygen in the scalp. Hair loss and balding are conditions that have been attributed to oxygen deficiency and with an increase in the oxygen levels, hair growth is a possibility.
Kérastase Densifique therefore aims to increase the production of hair follicles within the scalp and as a result encourage hair growth in parts of the scalp where follicles may have become dormant. The result is thicker hair.
Kérastase Densifique’s Clinical Study of Hair Growth with Stemoxydine
The average human hosts 100,000 to 150,000 hairs in the scalp.
Kérastase Densifique claims to assist in the natural production of hair follicles as opposed to disrupt it which is what many hair products do. A clinical study using a solution of 5 percent stemoxydine produced an increase of 4 percent in the hair density of 101 subjects. 4 percent hair increase represents an increase of about 1700 hairs. During the study, the solution was applied on the scalp once a day for three months and it was conducted on both men and women within the age groups of 18 and 55 years.
The results of the study are very encouraging considering that there are very few clinically proven hair loss products in the market. It is still not clear if Kérastase Densifique has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
According to L’Oreal, the demand for Kérastase Densifique is high, and while the three month treatment is being sold in selected salons and online stores, pre-orders are in the thousands. Many people are indeed ready to try out the product which can regenerate hair growth to a count of over 1500 new hairs.
Kérastase Densifique’s effectiveness is being credited on the stem cells ability to reach areas within the scalp that are susceptible to hair loss. Most hair loss products target hair fibers as opposed to the scalp.
As mentioned earlier, hair loss and thinning are brought about by lack of sufficient oxygen within the scalp. Kérastase Densifique therefore provides a viable solution to a problem that affects millions of people. Kérastase Densifique is currently being sold in Europe but orders can be made from the UK and U.S.
