            I have extremely itchy and dry scalp. I've used this twice so far and I don't see any flakes or scalp build up any longer. My scalp however is still very itchy. I will continue to use this product regularly and hope the itching subsides with regular use.

              I just started using this product two days again and already my dandruff is almost gone. Not only does this product work it smells great, and makes my hair super soft and voluminous!! I have had a problem with a dry scalp for almost a year now and nothing worked. I tried tea tree oil, paul mitchell, and more. Nothing worked better or faster than this product! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

                I use this at lease every other shampoo. Just wish they made it in a bigger bottle. The price is a little pricey. But if it works than it's worth it..

                • Q:

                  Does this product work for thinning hair? How does it compare to Nioxin 6. Do I need to use 3 products or can I get results with the use of 1 product? I do not have dandruff but I have thinning hair.

                    A:

                    The Scalp Recovery Cleanser is formulated for dry, itchy scalp. We suggest to use one of the Nioxin Systems, as they are designed for thinning hair and to keep the scalp environment healthy to promote new hair growth.

                  Would this product help with thinning hair and less hair fall as it clears the scalp of dry flakes?

                • Q:

                  How soon do you see results after starting using this shampoo and do you need to buy a special conditioner or can you use another brand of conditioner? I have an inflamed scalp which gets worse
                  due to stress.

                    A:

                    For best results, we recommend that you use the Scalp Recovery Moisturizing Conditioner along with the Scalp Recovery Cleanser. Typically, users notice some results within 1-2 weeks.
