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.

          This is the best thing I've tried for my hair. It's very thin (genetics) and used to fall out in (what I'd call) clumps. I'm not seeing anywhere near as much hair all over the furniture, floor, sink, clothes. It's fabulous.

                I purchased this product because I have noticed the last few months my hair has felt thinner. At first, I thought I liked this product. It lathers and cleans well with a fresh scent. Unfortunately, it made my hair dry and my hair has only gotten thinner. I purchased the largest bottle so I tried it for several months until it was finished but I will not be repurchasing.

                          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.

                            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.

                            NIOXIN's 3-part systems were designed to include products that help cleanse, optimize and treat the scalp and hair. For optimal benefits and the appearance of thick, dense-looking hair, NIOXIN recommends men and women use the entire three-step system daily as directed.

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