Too soon for results but liking so far

    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!

            Comments about Nioxin System 1 Cleanser:

            LOVE! Keep in mind I have crazy curly hair and it is super thick. My husband turned me onto this product and his hair is thick, but bone straight. It works great and doesn't make my hair feel all dried out like other shampoos do my hair. It also brought my hair back to life and I think it has helped keep my hair from severe heat damage. Do not let the "Fine Hair" label fool you.
