    Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

    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.

        • Daily Use

        Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

        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.

        • Daily Use

        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!

          Miracle!

          Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

          I have tried so many different products for my dry, flaky scalp I thought nothing would ever help it. Then I found this product. Before using this my scalp was in such bad condition that I had open wounds and scabs on top of the normal itching and flaking. After just two days of using this I could tell a huge difference in the condition of my scalp. The wounds were starting to heal from being properly moisturized and from me not scratching since it really did control the itch! I love this product, I'm so glad that I decided to try it. I think my only complaint would be that if you try to use it on a day you plan on styling you hair, it will make the hair close to where you used the cream look greasy since there is just no way to use this product and not get it on your hair.

          • Really Helps Your Scalp

          Cons

          • Price

          Best Uses

          • Best With Weaves

          Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum:

          Yes this product it thick, but it really works. If you have a dry, flaky, itchy scalp but love wearing those 3-6 month sew ins this is the BEST product for your scalp. If your sew in is done correctly and your braids are neat and even OCCASIONALLY apply this serum to your scalp or your weave cap and it will make it to the scalp. I have HORRIBLE flakes and dry scalp and this protected my scalp for six months while I was wearing an expensive nice weave.
