Nioxin System 2 Cleanser is a volumizing cleanser that helps to remove follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp and hair. Cleanses to provide thicker-looking hair for noticeably thinning, fine natural hair.

Technologies:

  • Scalp Access Delivery System with vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, while helping provide sun protection for the scalp.
  • BioAMP with cystine amino acids, and lightweight conditioning and treatment ingredients; helps provide thicker-looking hair by increasing the fullness of each hair strand, and reducing hair loss through strengthening against damage and breakage.
  • Activ-Renewal with white tea extract, peppermint oil and cleansing agents to help cleanse and provide a refreshed scalp environment and healthy shine to natural hair.

                  Comments about Nioxin System 2 Cleanser:

                  I started noticing a lot more hair fall then what's normal for me. But with my insurance changing and I never found a new doctor and now I'm moving I decided to try an otc product first. After a lot of researching I went with this. First off for the best results use both the shampoo and conditioner, probably using the serum would help even more. I tired just the conditioner for a month cause I didn't want to spend so much but it didn't help much. Now I'm using both, it's only been 2 washes with both products so far and my problem is 50% better. I'm shocked since I didn't expect results so soon.
                  By itself these products are great too. My hair has never felt so clean and my scalp is no longer oily. I can go longer between washes and feel more confident about my hair. Highly recommend to try this out if your experiencing hair fall.

                    • Q:

                      My hairdresser recommended I buy cleanser 3 for thinning/color-treated hair, even tho my hair has no added color. The shampoo is GREAT in every way, but now I am running out and need to replace. I have combo gray/dk brown hair which is thinning on top but good everywhere else. I am 70. Should I stay with 3 or do you recommend a change?

                        We would recommend sticking with System 3, since that is what your professional stylist recommended. System 3 is ideal for normal to thin looking, fine, chemically treated hair.

                        You should not combine Nioxin System #2 with Rogaine, as the combination would be too harsh.

                      I have very oily color treated hair, fine hair with a lot of "pull out", meaning strands seem to come out when getting close to shampoo time, also a lot of lost hair after shampooing and conditioning in the drain after rinsing. My hair is noticeably thinning around my temple and front hairline areas. Don't need a lot of moisture as it makes my hair even more limp. Would sysytem 2 be appropriate .

                        A:

                        System 4 would be your better option as it has the color protection in it. You will notice shedding in the beginning of using the products. We also recommend the hair booster for the temple areas.
