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

    Liquid is hard to control and runs before I can effectively rub it in. It either runs to the back or down my forehead. Too soon to determine if it's effective. Flakes if you don't wash your hair the next day.

              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:

                    Monoxidil is not intended to be used for a receding hairline, and it should not be applied to the eyebrows.

                  I have been experiencing hair loss due to Hormone therapy. I am using the #2 Nioxin. I purchased the box with all 3 products. I also purchased the Diamax, Hair Booster, Night density rescue, & Minoxidil topical solution. What is the order or the best way to use these products? I used to have beautiful long hair on top and now it is short and thin on top.

                    A:

                    This product should not be combined with Scalp Treatment, Hair Booster or Night Density Rescue. The combination of products can be too strong and could cause irritation. Here is the order of usage: Nioxin shampoo, Therapy Conditioner, and Minoxidil Topical Solution twice a day.

                    A:

                    The Nioxin Minoxidil is formulated specifically for those that experience hereditary hair loss. A better choice for mechanically damaged hair is the Nioxin system kit #4, in combination with Hair Booster. The Hair Booster is infused with ultra concentrated CoZyme-10 vitamin complex especially designed for those areas of low density. This will help strengthen the hair and help prevent future breakage. The order you should apply these products is: Nioxin Shampoo #4, Nioxin Therapy Conditioner #4, Hair Booster on towel dried hair, and last Scalp Treatment #4 on towel dried 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.
