      Comments about Nioxin Minoxidil Topical Solution USP 2% For Women:

      i have used this for 1 month and can see a difference on the crown of my scalp; the hair is filling in in the treatment area! I also like that the serum is alcohol based, so it dries quickly and doesn't affect the appearance of your hair such as leaving a "wet spot". My concern was that you would be able to see where the treatment area is due to the serum causing a wet appearance, but it dries within a minute, so it doesn't appear that your hair has anything on it in the treatment area. therefore, the hair in the treatment area blends in with the rest of your hair.

                      A:

                      These products would be great for your grandmother, even if her hair is natural, because coarse hair is typically drier than other hair types, that is what I would have recommended as well. System kit #6 is more moisturizing for this hair type. To minimize irritation we recommend your grandmother wait 4 hours after the application of the Scalp Treatment.

                      Yes, you may use the Minoxidil and the Nioxin 3-part system. You are missing the Scalp Treatment; please be sure to add this product to your regimen. Use these products in this order: Cleanser, Conditioner, Scalp Treatment. Wait four hours and apply your Minoxidil. At night, re- apply your Minoxidil before you go to bed.

                      A:

                      Nioxin does not advise you to use any of the 3 part system with Nioxin Hair Regrowth Treatment. The reason is that it can be irritating to your scalp.
                      If you are using the Nioxin Hair Regrowth Treatment, you must use the Scalp Optimizing Shampoo and the Scalp Optimizing Conditioner. This complements the Hair Regrowth Treatment in that it will normalize the scalp and minimize irritation. We hope this helps!
