    Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

    I moved to the desert in 2009 and began having lots of scalp issues. My hair stylist turned me on to Nioxin Scalp Recovery kit - and it worked! I had tried everything I could get without a prescription. I read the previous comments and have to say to see the benefits, you need to use the whole system! Once your issue is under control, you can omit/substitute the conditioner (at least for me it wasn't a critical variable in overall effectiveness). I've tried taking breaks and using other products to experiment, and my scalp issues only came back. I noticed other reviewers say it left their scalp or hair too greasy. This is what I do: I wash with the Nioxin shampoo, use conditioner (Nioxin or other), then towel dry my hair. I comb it out, then apply very small amounts (and I mean tiny - like drops) of the serum to the problem areas on my scalp and rub it in. I then blow dry my hair. The areas with the serum don't dry completely, and that's ok because it needs to soak in. I only do this once per day (I shower in the evening). If I find I have a re-occurring itch somewhere, I just apply a drop to that spot and let it absorb and I'm fine. I can go 2 - 3 days between shampoos/applications, and my scalp is totally happy. Note: Washing hair daily is NOT good for your scalp! It will exacerbate any issue you have - dry or oily. In summary, this stuff is so effective that when I am almost out, a little part of me panics until it's replaced. No burning, itchy scalp! No flakes!

        I have really bad dry scalp and have tried several different shampoos. This product is unique because it is almost a lotion for me scalp. It helps with the itching and I have noticed less flakes. The only con is the price is steep.

          Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

          My dermatologist recommended this for scalp dermatitis in the early 1990's. For decades I have had my hair colored every 4 weeks (turned gray at 22) & I would get small flaky irritated spots, mostly around the hairline & temples. Using this serum a couple times a week would clear it up. Fast forward 35 years & I have developed psoriasis with one patch (so far, thank u!) on my scalp & tho the serum can't rid me of it, it does calm it, making less inflamed. I have thick hair. I divide my washed wet hair first to the spot, then put a nickel size amount on one finger & work thoroughly into & around the spot. A little goes a long way, & I get as little as possible on my hair - it is a "scalp" product. A couple times a week works well for me. The smell isn't great but the trade off is worth it.

            This product is to be used multiple times a day and leaves your hair greasier after every use. I have used it now for a week+ and do not notice my dry scalp getting any better, if anything it seems worse. This product was a waist of money.

            Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

            I use this product in the winter because my scalp gets dry and itchy from the cold weather and from heaters running indoors. It feels great and is very soothing on my scalp, but it is somewhat thick. It might not be ideal for people who have thin or straight hair, but my hair is thick and curly, so it really isn't that noticeable. I would recommend this to anyone who has thick or curly hair with a dry and itchy scalp.

              Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

              I have tried EVERYTHING under the sun to give me some relief from my severe scalp psoriasis/eczema. I know it's best to resist the urge to itch but life happens and the urge was too strong! My scalp was RAW. I was just about ready to head into the dermatologist for some prescription solutions when this line was recommended to me.

              LIFE CHANGING!

              So easy to use and very effective. Doesn't leave a weird chemical scent and even though it clings to the problem areas for treatment, doesn't weigh my hair down.

              So grateful I fount these products!
