      Best Uses

        Comments about Redken Cerafill Retaliate Kit For Advanced Thinning Hair:

        Bought this to use on my fine, thinning hair to prevent hair loss and give more volume. After several uses, my hair felt like straw and I had more hair loss, not less. Also, the conditioner is worthless. I usually don't use much conditioner because it weighs my hair down; I just use a little on the ends to detangle. However, with this conditioner which is like water, I put handfuls (or at least tried to) on my ends with the end result being having tangles in my lengthy hair - thus adding to hair loss. Ended up throwing this product in the trash.

                      A:

                      Cerafill Retaliate Mimoxidil is no longer available. It was a separate product not an ingredient in the Cerafill Retaliate Conditioner. You may now use any brand Minoxidil with the Cerafill product line. We hope this information is helpful.

                    I'm just wondering for maximum results to increase both thickness & amount of hair, would you recommend using both the Redkin cerefill defence FX and the Minoxidil treatment? If so, does it matter which is applied first since both have daily application?

                    I've been using the shampoo and conditioner for 3 weeks now. I've notice my scalp is showing a little more. (it's only one area..close to the forehead) Is it possible that I am losing more hair using this product then before? I'm concerned.
                    Also, the conditioner leaves my hair feeling like brittle..

                      A:

                      The Cerafill Retaliate product offering includes the hair regrowth treatment Minoxidil to promote growth over time. Minoxidil is part of a long term solution. It takes time to regrow hair, results may be visible after using Minoxidil regularly for 2-4 months. The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Minoxidil will not work for everyone.

                      A:

                      You should use the Cerafill Retaliate Shampoo and Conditioner every time you wash your hair, whether that is every day or every other day. Dense FX can be used everyday, even if you didn't wash your hair that day. Or, use Dense FX as often as desired.

                      The only Cerafill product that needs to be used everyday is Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil Topical Solution- which is not included in the kit. For more information on this product, please follow this link:

                  • Q:

                    how do you apply the Dense FX. Is it like a mouse or is it a spray. Is it applied all over head or just where thinning occurs? Is it necessary (or just recommended to work better) to also use Shampoo and Conditioner. I never use Conditioner because it makes my hair too soft and it falls flat.

                      A:

                      Apply Dense FX to hair beginning at your scalp and working it through your hair, to the ends. Work in sections. Massage gently at the roots. Do not rinse.
                      For optimal results, reapply once hair is 60-80% dry. If you are using multiple Cerafill products, apply Dense FX after you've used the other products.
                      We recommend that you use the Cerafill Shampoo and Conditioner, but that is entirely your choice.

                  • Q:

                    Does the Retaliate kit help with hair loss on its own, or do I also need the minoxidil?

                      A:

                      Redken Cerafill Retaliate Kit will help your hair appear thicker. The Dense FX add to the thickness of every strand of hair, making your hair appear thicker. The shampoo and conditioner strengthen the hair, promote a healthy scalp, and clean away follicle-clogging oils. This creates the perfect environment for healthy hair to grow.

                      You have the choice of adding Redken Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil to this regiment. Minoxidil is clinically proven to help regrow hair, so you might expect to see more hair with Minoxidil than without.

                      This kit is designed for thicker, fuller results instantly with the use of Cerafill Retaliate Shampoo, Conditioner and DenseFx hair diameter thickening treatment.

                      Product longevity will vary based on usage. Cerafill Hair Regrowth Treatment is designed to last 30 days when used twice daily.

                      Once usage is discontinued, your hair will eventually revert back to its initial density.
