          Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Cleanser:

          I get bad dandruff/dry scalp in the winter. I used to use Head & Shoulders but it didn't seem to do much. This was my first expensive dandruff shampoo purchase, and I really wanted to like it.. but didn't work at all. It doesn't seem to clean your hair, and it is very thick.. you almost have to use a regular shampoo on top of it for your hair to get thoroughly cleaned. Most importantly, it didn't do anything for my scalp, and almost seemed to make it worse. I switched to Biolage ScalpSync shampoo (which is actually cheaper!) and since then my dandruff is gone, and my hair feels so much more clean and soft.

                        I'm wondering if this shampoo is safe for hair that has been keratin-treated. I'm assuming no, since there is sulfate listed in the ingredients, but I just want to make sure.

                          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.

                          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.
