    Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Kit:

    My boyfriend actually introduced me to this stuff. A friend of his had recommended it to him, so he purchased it - except it didn't work for him, so he just left it in the shower. Well, I'm nosy, so I tried it once - and it sure did work. I have been hooked since! This kit is the best value for this brand... I use it all, and each item costs more individually than it does in this kit, so I tend to stock up. If you have serious flake problems due to a medical condition (and I do), this is a good way to try this before resorting to the harsh Rx stuff.

    Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Kit:

    Having my second child triggered a bad case of seborrheic dermatitis. For over a year I have struggled with an unbearably itchy, flakey, and sometimes painful scalp. Month and months of trying every type of shampoo under the sun lead me nowhere... Mainstream dandruff shampoo, holistic, all natural...no luck. Some products even made it worse. Desperate, I finally decided to invest in Nioxin Scalp Therapy and the results were AMAZING. My scalp felt better almost instantly after using this 3 step system. Flakes were gone after 2 WEEKS (I wash every 3 days). My hair also feels so soft. So happy!!!

    2 things to note: It has been claimed that it can be used on color treated hair...I am getting my hair colored this week and update regarding it's effects on color longevity. Also, there are several key ingredients that are proven to help treat seborrheic dermatitis...IN MY CASE, I've found prythione zinc to be the most effective, but I know for some it's not. Do your research and pay attention to the active ingredients in your shampoo. If this one doesn't work for you maybe search for a shampoo with coal tar or salicylic acid.

    Didn't like it. Not the first time nioxin let me down. Last time I'm ever spending any cash on their expensive products that don't even do what they say they do.

      Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Kit:

      Today, September 26, was the first time I used this product. I could tell this was something different than any other treatment as soon as I started to work the shampoo into my scalp. It lathers up nice and creamy and rinses easily after letting it sit on my scalp for 2-3 minutes. Followed up with the conditioner, which I also let sit for 2-3 minutes even though the directions didn't indicate to do so. After rinsing, my hair felt clean and my scalp did not itch - which in itself is amazing because my SD is really bad rights now just above by neck hairline. My forehead is also slightly affected with SD and I did scrub a little of the shampoo on that area as well. Normally by the time I get out of the shower the back of my head is itching so bad that I can hardly stand to put my hair in a towel. I followed up with the soothing serum from the kit. It is a creamy lotion and I found it was easiest to apply it to the back of my head while my hair was pulled up inside a towel. It was easy to rub in with my fingertips and I don't notice any stickiness or residue when styling. Blow-drying my hair went far better than I expected. Normally I'm simultaneously scratching my scalp while I blow-dry because the movement of my hair and the heat from the dryer make the itchiness very intense. Not the case today. I did itch some, but it wasn't the burning feeling I usually have. I'm at work now and it's been 3 hours since I used this system and what a difference it has made. A normal day for me is spent trying to work while also scratching the intense scalp itch - making my day very unproductive. I did get a slight tinge of itchiness, but I brought the serum with me and applied just a tad drop to that area and I'm fine again. Getting my job done without the interference of constant itching.

          I've been struggling with seborrheic dermatitis which has made my scalp so incredibly itchy and my hair start to thin. Yesterday, I was in pain not being able to scratch my head at work so I went and bought this system. In the evening, each time my head itched, I put the serum on the affected area. I then shampooed, really lathered and massaged it in, and waited for 5 minutes and then put the conditioner on. Same thing last night after showering and this morning, any itchy places, I've been applying the serum. This stuff is amazing! I am barely itchy at all today at work! Luckily this was on sale when I bought it and I had coupons because the price is steep, way cheaper than a dermatologist though!
