                      My hair is very thin and fine. Noxin gives extra body and ands volume to each strand. I use a small amount so the bottle lasts a very long time.

                          I have gray natural curly hair and do not wash it daily because it becomes too dry. I am loosing hair on the crown area. Hair is thinning out with the follicles, not breaking off. Sometimes their is a slight itchiness. My hair is not fine but more coarser. Which product would be best for me? I use a flatiron and blow dryer each time I style my hair after a shampoo.

                          I have three questions pertaining to this line.

                          1. Is there a difference between the shampoo and cleanser and scalp therapy and treatment?

                          2. Do I need the scalp treatment, or can I just use the shampoo/cleanser and conditioner?

                          3. I was told by other hair salons that I should not use this every time I wash my hair. They recommend alternating this with "it's a 10 miracle moisture shampoo and conditioner", is that true and should I listen to that?

                            A:

                            1) Yes, the cleanser is the shampoo, and cleanses the hair and scalp of excess residues. The scalp therapy conditioner restores moisture to the hair and scalp, and the scalp treatment refreshes and protects the scalp.
                            2) For best results, the scalp treatment should be used as well.
                            3) For best results from Nioxin, it should be used primarily. If you alternate with another shampoo and conditioner, you likely will not see as great of results from Nioxin.
