              This product is amazing. My brother came from out of state and brought this with him. I used some of it and eat a turn around. My hair would normally be super greasy after a day without washing. This shampoo made my hair still really nice the next day. It still felt clean, smelled great, and had hold.

                    Comments about Nioxin System 1 Cleanser:

                    I've only been using this for about three weeks so it's too early to tell if it helps with stopping hair loss but I like it as a shampoo so far.

                    The first thing that surprised me was the color- it's a bright blue clear shampoo with an almost minty smell that's not too overpowering. It's a bit pricey so I've been mixing it half and half with my regular shampoo to make it last longer.

                    I had originally wanted to try Rogaine but after reading several reviews, I decided to try Nioxin first since I didn't want to apply Rogaine foam twice a day and was worried about the lifetime commitment. This shampoo is much easier to use and I haven't had the more-than-usual hair fallout that some Rogaine users experience when first starting use.

                    I plan to use this for at least 6 months and will see by then if I notice any new hair growth. Overall though, I really like it!
