29 years of age, male.
Hair loss status: aggressive diffuse thinning
Previous regimen : Saw Palmetto 12 months (did not do anything, even on high dose)
Finasteride: never tried, never will:-)
I read about Keratene Retard last year, it is supposed to lower DHT similar to Finasteride but without side effects. Keratene comes as a food supplement and it is based on Beta Sitosterol using a delayed release (hence the word ‘Retard’)
I am always very skeptical about any new product, so I decided to perform my own little experiment.
I counted the amount of hairs on a clean pillow for a period of 30 days, before using Keratene and again after being on Keratene for 10 months.
Products used :
Keratene Retard tablets, twice a day (one in the morning, one in the evening)
Keratene Shampoo and Keratene Ultra Lotion (10 minutes) twice a week
Before using Keratene (not using any hair loss product)
Average hair count : 324 per day
After using Keratene products (10 months)
Average hair count : 103 per day
Conclusion : Keratene has a statistically significant benefit in reducing hair loss in my case
I am not related to Keratene in any way, directly or indirectly.
