    Comments about Nioxin 3D Styling Thickening Gel:

    I can always count on Nioxin for amazing products and this one was short of wonderful. Everything from the scent to the hold works so well. It comes out of the packaging like gel but what I do is rub it all over my palms, then disperse it evenly through out. That way there aren't clumps. It helps control and hold my fine hair, gives it shine, and gives it volume. I highly recommend this product along with all of their other products.

      Comments about Nioxin 3D Styling Thickening Gel:

      I was using Aveda thickening spray and wanted to try something else because Ulta doesn't carry Aveda. I don't use Nioxxin generally but when I read the ingredients, I was surprised. It has a nice smell and is really easy to use. It only takes a little product to go a long way. It has made my hair look fuller almost immediately and I don't feel like I'm damaging my hair by using too many chemicals on it or that will build up on the shaft.

                  I have fine, thin hair. My hair stylist recommended this product, so I tried it. I put it on after I have towel-dried my hair following a shampoo. After a few minutes (getting dressed, brushing my teeth), I use a blow dryer and style my hair with a round brush and a regular brush. This product gives me enough volume that I don't have to shampoo my hair the next day, and sometimes a day beyond that.

                      Apply to towel dried hair. Let dry for approx. 1/2 hr., blow dry, and style with curling iron if you so chose.

                        • Q:

                          I have very fine, noticeably thinning hair. I use minoxidil and just started using Nioxin Night Density Rescue as well. Can I add Diamax Advanced and 3D Thickening Gel to my regimen? And if yes, in what order would I use these products? Thank you!

                            A:

                            Nioxin 3D Styling Thickening Gel can be used in conjunction with Diamax. Apply Diamax to the root and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Then apply Nioxin 3D Styling Thickening Gel and comb through. Both products are meant to improve density. If this is too much for your hair, choose only one product.

                            Minoxidil should not be used in conjunction with Night Density Rescue. This is too harsh for your scalp. Choose one or the other. If you are using Minoxidil, the Optimizing Shampoo and Conditioner should be used with it.

                            We hope this helps!
