FAQs

Is KeepItAnchored for me?

KeepItAnchored is for anyone who is concerned about hair loss or would like to start reducing daily hair loss.

KeepItAnchored strengthens the roots of the hair you already have to reduce daily hair loss. It is best used by those who are experiencing the early signs of thinning or hair loss. If you're beginning to see a receding hairline, more hair in your brush or a wider part line, you are a good candidate for hair loss reduction.

Hair loss reduction works for both men and women because scalp oxidative stress affects both genders equally. What men and women need for their hair tends to be different so, we’ve created unique formulas for men and women.

KeepItAnchored does not grow new hair, so if you are looking to cover bald spots, you will find better solutions by talking with a dermatologist or trichologist.

 

How is female hair loss different than male hair loss?

Hair loss caused by biological factors like genetics and age does manifest differently in men versus women. However, hair loss from scalp oxidative stress does not discriminate by gender nor ethnicity.

Oxidative stress is an external factor that causes excessive hair loss for both men and women. Therefore, KeepItAnchored's clinically proven technology works for both men and women by reducing oxidative stress at the scalp surface to strengthen hair’s anchor to the scalp.

KeepItAnchored Kits for Men share the same Hair Anchor Blend as the Kits for Women. However, the formulation of each product differs by gender to create the experience and deliver the hair benefits that tend to be preferred by each.

 

Is the product best used as a preventative measure or for those who are already experiencing hair loss?

KeepItAnchored is for anyone who is concerned about hair loss or would like to start reducing daily hair loss. KeepItAnchored strengthens the roots of the hair you already have to reduce daily hair loss, but it does not regrow hair that has already been lost.

The clinical study showed that those who started with more hair kept more hair. That’s why it is recommended to start when you see the early signs of thinning or hair loss. If you're beginning to see a receding hairline, more hair in your brush or a wider part line, you are a good candidate for hair loss reduction.

 

What is scalp oxidative stress?

Oxidative stress comes from damaging free radicals, which we regularly encounter from environmental sources like UV and pollution. On skin, oxidative stress speeds lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. It turns fresh apples and avocados brown once exposed to air. With hair, oxidative stress at hairs’ roots accelerates hair loss by weakening the connection — the anchor — of each strand to the scalp. Over time, the fall-out from scalp oxidative stress shows up as more hair in your brush and drain, less at your hair line, or a wider part. While it is normal to shed hairs daily, oxidative stress increases the amount you lose unnecessarily.

Antioxidants are the best antidote for oxidative stress - that’s why antioxidant salts are a key part of KeepItAnchored’s clinically proven Hair Anchor blend.

 

Where can I see the clinical proof behind KeepItAnchored?

You can read a brief summary of the clincial research behind KeepItAnchored HERE.

Also, you can read about the clinical research in more detail in the peer-reviewed article published by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science HERE.

 

Is this safe to use with existing skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema?

It is best to consult with your physician before using KeepItAnchored if you are experiencing or prone to psoriasis or eczema. The clinical study behind KeepItAnchored did not include people with these conditions.

 

Does the product regrow hair?

KeepItAnchored does not grow new hair, so if you are looking to cover bald spots, you will find better solutions by talking with a dermatologist or trichologist.

 

Is it safe to use KeepItAnchored while using Finasteride or Minoxidil?

KeepItAnchored has not been tested with concurrent use of finasteride or minoxidil. While they work in very different ways (finasteride and minoxidil are drug approaches to treating hair loss while KeepItAnchored is a cosmetic, antioxidant approach), we do not have data to know what will be the results when KeepItAnchored is used along with other treatments.

 

What are the ingredients in KeepItAnchored and how do they help combat hair loss?

KeepItAnchored was created after finding that a blend of antioxidant salts, zinc antioxidants, and B-Vitamins – now called the Hair Anchor Blend - worked in a clinical trial to reduce daily hair loss. The blend works by relieving oxidative stress at the scalp surface to strengthen hair at the roots. When hair is better anchored to the scalp, daily hair loss is reduced.

Research has shown that while genetics, age, and other factors do contribute to hair loss, environmental stress known as oxidative stress is the #1 cause of daily hair loss. Oxidative stress is caused by damaging free radicals, like those from UV exposure, pollution or the unique scalp environment. Scalp oxidative stress leads to premature hair loss by weakening scalp’s grip on hair’s roots.

KeepItAnchored does not grow new hair, it helps you keep more of the hair you have. When you start early, KeepItAnchored gives you more control over hair loss and a future of fuller, better hair.

 

What happens if I stop using the product?

Once you stop using KeepItAnchored, you will likely see your daily amount of hair loss gradually increase to the level you experienced before starting KeepItAnchored. This happens as your scalp skin becomes affected by higher levels of oxidative stress, which will weaken the scalp’s grip on hair at the roots.

 

What are the side effects?

In our testing, some noticed flakes in their hair as the product dried. This can happen if too much product was used or if the product was not massaged through the scalp thoroughly.

While most people noticed improvements in their scalp health, it is possible some may experience scalp irritation. If this happens, stop using the products and consult a dermatologist.

 

Why have KeepItAnchored Kit offerings changed?

We’ve heard you! Our kit offerings can be confusing. Hair loss is confusing enough, so we’re making things simpler. We now offer 2 KeepItAnchored Kits for Women and 2 KeepItAnchored Kits for Men:

  1. The Starter Kit, which includes the Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Anchoring Essences
  2. The Complete Kit, our most popular kit, for those who want to go all in with the full regimen – PreCleanser, Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Anchoring Essences.

You can also buy the Hair Anchoring Essences, Shampoo, and Conditioner individually if you want to build your own combinations.

 

Do I need to use all 4 products to get the results?

The clinically-proven hair anchoring technology is most concentrated in the Hair Anchoring Essence, so this is the most important product to use. It can be used daily, on either wet or dry hair.

If you want results fast, we recommend using the complete regimen on wash days:  

  • The Pre-Cleanser purifies the scalp and unclogs pores
  • The Shampoo nourishes hair and scalp with the Hair Anchor blend, which is clinically proven to reduce daily hair loss from the root
  • The Conditioner strengthens hair strands to reduce hair loss from breakage

 

What if I don’t wash every day?

No worries! That’s why we created the Hair Anchoring Essence for the scalp for use on wet or dry hair. It dries very quickly to get to your hair roots without messing with your style even if you apply it on 2nd-day or 3rd-day hair.

While scalp oxidative stress happens daily, we know not everyone washes daily. The Hair Anchoring Essence has you covered as a daily solution. Just apply, leave it on, and go about your normal hair routine.

 

How will I know it’s working?

During the 1st use, you will feel a cooling/tingling sensation that lets you know you’ve applied it and that it’s starting to work.  

After the 1st use, your scalp will feel stimulated, moisturized, and refreshed. Hair may feel slightly thicker and look a little fuller.

After 4 weeks, people noticed significant improvement in hair loss - like less hair falling out in the brush or comb.

After 6-months of using the product in our clinical trial, people continued to notice less hair in their brush and fuller hair on their head.

 

Is KeepItAnchored safe for use on color-treated hair?

Yes!The KeepItAnchored Starter Kit, Hair Anchoring Essences, Shampoo, and Conditioner are all color-safe formulas.

The HairAnchoring Essence is especially important if you are washing your hair less often since coloring it. With the leave-on Essence, you can have your daily dose of the Hair Anchor Blend regardless of how often you wash as it can be used on either wet or dry hair.

If you have colored hair, we do recommend avoiding the Pre-Cleanser as it can be more cleansing than color-treated hair needs. This is only available in the Complete Kit.

 

Do I need to change my hair style or styling products when I use KeepItAnchored?

No, you can style as you like after using the KeepItAnchored regimen.

KeepItAnchored's Shampoo & Conditioner can replace your normal shampoo & conditioner. The HairAnchoring Essence is applied to either wet or dry hair before styling. You can then add any styling products to create the look you want while still preventing hair loss.

OR 2) Build your own kit by selecting products from our a la carte list.

While the selections have changed, the clinically proven technology and loved formulas remain the same.

 

How does the Hair Anchoring Essence work?

KeepItAnchored works to relieve oxidative stress at the scalp surface to strengthen hair's roots and reduce daily hair loss. New research has shown that while genetics, age, and other factors do contribute to hair loss, environmental stress known as oxidative stress is the #1 cause of daily hair loss. Scalp oxidative stress leads to premature hair loss as it weakens scalp’s grip on hair’s roots.

KeepItAnchored was created after finding that HairAnchor technology – a blend of antioxidant salts, zinc antioxidants, and B-Vitamins – worked in a clinical trial to reduce daily hair loss. The KeepItAnchored regimen includes a daily Hair Anchoring Essence for the scalp, Pre-Cleanser, Shampoo, and Conditioner.

We do not grow new hair, we help it being lost in the first place. KeepItAnchored gives you more control over hair loss and a future of fuller, better hair.

 

How do you use the Hair Anchoring Essence?

The Hair Anchoring Essence is a daily scalp treatment to be used on either wet or dry hair. It’s a simple 3-step process:

1.UNLOCK the treatment tube by twisting the bottom of the capsule until it clicks.

2.APPLY by pressing the base of the capsule while the tip is pointed at your scalp. Apply 3 drops per row as you work from front to back. You want to use enough to massage across the top of your crown.

3.MASSAGE the essence thoroughly across your scalp.

The main thing to do is to LEAVE IT ON after application – do not use just before washing as washing would remove the Hair Anchor blend before it has had a chance to calm oxidative stress at the scalp surface.

 

Does KeepItAnchored help with hair loss due to childbirth or medication?
