Nioxin Hair Loss System Really Works!
I decided to try the Nioxin line of products based on the reviews by other customers on the site. I have very fine color treated hair so I bought the System 3. I bought the Cleanser, Scalp Therapy, Scalp Activating Treatment and the Boost. I figured I'd do it right. I've been using it now for about two+ months and I really see a difference! I'm so pleased. My hair has filled in and there's hardly any hair in the shower, if any. If I had any hope that it would work, I wish I had a before and after picture to share.

Initially I found the Shampoo and Conditioner drying; my hair felt hard and it was hard to style. But I found a solution for me. After washing my hair and then using the conditioner 'only on my scalp in the areas that needed it', I added my own conditioner over the Nioxin conditioner and it solved the problem.

A good tip is to use the Nioxin products on your scalp and not all over your hair, especially the treatment and boost. It also helps if you are on a budget.

Also, I use the Scalp Activating Treatment every day even if I don't wash my hair. I usually try to wash my hair every other day. And I only use it on the areas of my scalp that need it. I add a few drops of boost several minutes after the treatement.

I started my husband on the same course of treatment and he too sees a big difference as do I. I have to say, we're very pleased with these products.

Terrible For Fine, Curly Hair! Made It Dry And Lifeless!
I was so excited to try this product, as I have very fine, curly hair. My hair tends to be dry, as well. I read that it makes it thicker, etc.. Well, it totally took all the body out of my hair! It made it very dry and frizzy and lifeless! No curl at all! It actually made my hair feel thinner. :( This was only after 2 uses!

Is This Suppose To Make You Lose Hair?
I used the products three times and I noticed that my hair was coming out and had gotten extremely thin. Before using the product my hair was normal to course but had some damage form chemical use. I tried this product to correct the chemical damaged that had been done to my hair and after the third use my hair was very thin. I read a review stating that there will be hair lost and that the product has to be used for at least 3 months for results. However I'm kind of nervous to continue because of the thinning. Has this happen to someone? If so can you help?

It's Helping My Thin Hair
I am a 48 yo white woman with thin hair. I had a lot of hair until my hysterectomy and then it started falling out by the handfuls. I have tried a dozen "designer" shampoo, conditioner and treatments for hair loss and saw no improvement. My hair stylist suggested I try this. After one small bottle I was losing significantly less hair. It hasn't affected my hair color at all so I will continue to use it and hope I can regain some of my original hair.

It Works
I am a sixty year old Asian American male with black hair - in the past five years I noticed my hair thinning with my lighter colored scalp showing through and did not like it. My earlier hairdresser recommended Nioxin as several of her male clients got good results so I tried it. After switching hairdressers (for other reasons), my second hair person also recommended Nioxin as well, at which point I had been using it about two months - with 2 independent recommendations I thought I was on to something. Now after about nine months I can see the results, which felt like they started at about four months and really kicked in at six months. I use the Nioxin 3 system because I color my hair with the shampoo, conditioner and leave-in spray treatment. The leave-in product leaves your hair slightly sticky but after awhile that goes away and my hair feels normal. I like the system, its easy to use, my hair feels good and more importantly it looks good. I can see that the hair is dramatically thicker, and I have not experienced any problems with itching or irritation. This is not a product, and I think its marketed correctly as a hair thickener - it does not stop hair loss or bring hair back or anything. I highly recommend this product but give it time to do its stuff!

Nioxin Man
After running into Nioxin and using it for over 2 years I can look back at pictures and video of myself and see that I obviously have more hair than I did. I wish I would have started using this early so that I would have even more hair now. I think the key to this product is to use it when you first start to notice your hair loss. That is whemn it is more effective for sure, but I started late and I have still seen great results from it. I always buy from they specialize in Nioxin and have the best price I have found so far. If your shopping around you wont find a better price. I usually get my stuff within 2-3 days. I really like System 1, it is the best fix for my hair type. They have at least 8 systems. You can defintely find one for your style of hair. It took me about 2 months before I really started to notice it. It happens so gradually that you dont, but then someone took my picture and I was put it up on my mirror. I noticed right away. Very obvious how much more hair I had. I suggest using this if you are loosing your hair. Stop it now before it is gone and to late.

I Heard It Through The Grapevine
First of all let me tell you that I am glad I was introduced to such a product. My hair started thinning at the ending of last year and yes I am going through the menopause, but I was blessed to receive info of the Nioxin product. I asked my beautician about how to grow back my hair that was thinning in the crown of my head and she showed me a picture of her when her hair was shoulder length. She has long hair past her shoulders. She told me about Nioxin vitamins and the kit. She also told me where to purchase it from, and she begin to explain to me about her hair and her daughters hair of how their hair was coming out.She told me when she used the Nioxin product for at least a month she noticed that her hair was not coming out in the comb and a little length was added. Not only that was good, but as she continued to use it on her dauthers and herself their hair was getting thicker and fuller. I might add I am a witness and can testify to the length and to the fullness of all of their hair. I, myself began to use the Nioxin products and I did just as she said about washing and conditioning my hair plus taking the vitamins once every day (the vitamins give you enery). I must say thanks to a very special person at Traders Secret in the Hulen Mall, and she knows who she is. My hair was falling out as well and had gotten shorter, but I have taken the Nioxin Vits. and is still using the the therapy kit and my hair has grown at least an inch plus in the three months I have used it. I am a woman of color and so is my beautician. Yes, people have noticed my hair and make compliments on it all the time. My hair is not even shoulder length. My hair has always been thin ,but not anymore, my thinning crown is no longer thin, thanks to the scalp therapy. A GREAT BIG THANKS TO YOU NIOXIN FOR MAKING SUCH A PROUDUCT WITHOUT RESPECTER OF PERSONS.

Just Aweful
I have to admit, I have read good reviews on Nioxin products..but this one is aweful. Over the past 6 years I have noticed my hairloss getting more noticable. Being a 20-something female that is quite devasting. Anyways..I thought I would give this a try, but it made my hair much worse. First of all, it left my hair feeling very greasy-almost like I had more sebum on my scalp. Second of all, it made me shed much more than usual. This stuff is just bad...but on the other hand..I absolutely love the matching conditioner. Maybe if they could formulate this shampoo to be made without sulfates, it would be better.
