Hair Loss Product Review - Keeps Hair Loss Kit

Shapiro MD Hair Loss System

Keeps Hair Loss kit treatment offers an FDA approved hair loss product that uses minoxidil and finasteride to help boost overall hair growth in men. However, it does not include a DHT blocking shampoo. Experts agree DHT blocking shampoo is fundamental in the growth of new hair.

Product and Treatment Explanation

Begin the Keeps Hair Loss kit and plan with a licensed doctor consultation. Your doctor will talk to you in order to gain a better understanding of your individual hair growth condition. This information will enable them to prescribe you with an individualized treatment plan. After 4 to 6 weeks of trying out the Keeps hair loss treatment, your doctor will contact you through their 'secure patient portal' to check on your results. A team of care specialists will be there for you to consult through the treatment process. Keeps Hair Loss supplements are sent to your home every three months and need to be taken daily.

The two main ingredients that the Keeps Hair Loss kit implements are Finasteride and Minoxidil.

The Finasteride is taken in a 1 gram oral prescription pill, daily. It helps to block the production of DHT, which is the hormone that is responsible for male pattern baldness. Finasteride has been proven to stop the continuation of receding hairlines while boosting hair growth, reducing, and often stopping hair loss. It targets not only the hairline, but also the crown of the head, and the vertex. It can be taken with or without a meal, and it is advised to take your Finasteride dose every day at the same time for maximum effectiveness.

Minoxidil is taken by way of a 5% topical solution used to treat hereditary hair loss and male pattern baldness in men. It is applied directly to the scalp, twice a day. Minoxidil has been proven effective at preventing hair loss and promoting hair regrowth, mainly on the crown of your head. The purpose of Minoxidil is to give you fuller, thicker hair, as it focuses on the crown and the vertex areas. Results from Minoxidil are typically seen as soon as 3 to 4 months in.

Pricing and Value of Product

Your first doctor consultation, when starting the Keeps Hair Loss Kit, is free. Each visit after that with your doctor will be priced at $30.0. The Finasteride and the Minoxidil are priced separately, with Fineraside costing you $25.0 a month and your Minoxidil prescription costing $10.0 a month. There are three featured Keeps hair kit treatment plans for you to choose from, depending on your needs. These include:

Finaseride and Minoxidil package:

This treatment plan is best suited for men with thinning hair. It is stated to reduce hair loss and encourage hair regrowth. This option is priced at $70 for the first three months, and $105 dollars a month every three months thereafter. Currently, Keeps is featuring a deal on this package for just $35.0 a month, as opposed to the normal $105 dollars a month.

Finasteride package:

Designed for receding hairlines, this Keeps Hair Loss kit contains 1mg of Finasteride. Taken every three months, it is meant to reduce hair loss, specifically at the hairline, crown, and vertex. This package is the most popular and Keeps prices it at 3 months for $50, and $75 dollars every three months after that. As of right now, Keeps is offering this kit for $25 a month.

Science Behind the Product

The science behind the Keeps Hair Loss kit is aimed at targeting the root cause of Androgenetic Alopecia, or "Male Pattern Baldness". Finasteride, when taken daily is said to block DHT production in the body. DHT is the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. Studies have proven that it is able to prevent receding hairlines and boost hair growth. Minoxidil, when applied topically, twice a day to your scalp, is known to help you grow thicker and fuller hair. It works by slowing overall hair loss and encouraging new hair growth at the crown area of the head.
