Hair loss is no joke. There are many factors that can contribute to hair loss such as genetics, postpartum, stress, and nutrition. But did you know that the most common cause of daily hair loss is an environmental stress known as oxidative stress? Just as UV rays and pollution are damaging to our skin (wrinkles, fine lines), they are also damaging to our hair by causing oxidative stress that speeds up hair loss by weakening the hold your scalp has on hair roots. Oxidative stress effects both men and women and if left unchecked, scalp oxidative stress can lead to early and inordinate hair loss. However, as daunting as that may sound, oxidative stress is also one of the most controllable causes, and this is where Keep It Anchored comes in.
Keep It Anchored’s exclusive formulas are the result of more than 20 years of research by a team of dermatologists and hair scientists on oxidative stress and hair loss. The formulas are powered by the Hair Anchor Blend, which is an amalgamation of antioxidant salts to dismiss oxidative stress, a zinc compound to improve scalp conditions, and B-vitamins known to aid in skin barrier health. These exceptional products were created to reduce daily hair loss by calming oxidative stress at the scalp to keep hair in place for longer. After first launching in New Zealand, a population especially prone to oxidative stress, Keep It Anchored is now available in the US. All Keep It Anchored products are clinically proven, cruelty free, and paraben free. I tried the Colorcare Kit for Women, which includes a one-month supply of Keep It Anchored Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Anchoring Essence. This looked like the perfect kit for me because through the years I’ve noticed my hair suddenly getting shorter and shedding more, along with lots of new greys. Good times… So, I needed a product that was also designed to take care of hair color as well.
Keep It Anchored Shampoo
This super gentle cleanser is great because it does not strip the color, so it won’t fade. As you wash, your scalp and roots are nourished for healthier and more vibrant hair.
Keep It Anchored Conditioner
Produced with a combination of antioxidant zinc and B-vitamins this excellent conditioner strengthens each fiber against hair loss due to breakage. The formula is lightweight enough that your hair is moisturized and left soft and ready to style. I have curly hair so it is not the easiest to manage; what I really like about this conditioner is that it is extra detangling so you are not spending the entire morning trying to comb out knots.
Hair Anchoring Essence
This daily leave-on treatment has the MOST concentrated dose of HairAnchor antioxidants, zinc minerals and B-vitamins that are clinically-proven to replenish the scalp and strengthen the hair at the roots. HairAnchoring Essence can be used on dry or wet hair. You just have to remember to apply 8-10 drops every day. To get the most out of the product, I would recommend placing it tip down. Instantly after application, there is a tingling and cooling sensation which is a good sign — you know the essence is working. Your scalp will feel fresh and hydrated and you can look forward to the future results.
What to expect:
After 1 use, scalp feels refreshed and you can style as normal.
After 1 week, hair feels smoother, shinier and scalp much more moisturized.
After 4 weeks, significant improvement in hair loss.
After 8 weeks, hair looks and feels fuller. Less hair in your hair brush.
Nothing, especially when it come to hair loss is going to work magically overnight. So it does take some time to see noticeable results. By the end of the month, I was very pleased that there was less hair in the drain and styling was much more enjoyable without the stray flyaways that would always end up all over my clothes. Don’t waste another minute on hair loss — say hello to luscious locks.
