          I use the whole Nioxin System 2. This REALLY helps my fine hair. Nioxin products are only products that cured my itchy scalp. Keeps hair and scalp very clean!!! I use the System in combination with Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus. It works!!!

                  As I age my fine hair is becoming thin too, not a winning combination for volume. The Nioxin products, when used as directed, really do help. Expensive, but definitely worth the price.

                        Yes, you can absolutely style your hair as usual when using System 2 Scalp Treatment. The only thing we'd recommend is avoiding any additional scalp treatments. Hope this helps!

                        9 out of 10 users notice thicker, denser-looking hair in just 30 days when using NIOXIN daily. NIOXIN Minoxidil is proven to stimulate hair growth. Using the proper NIOXIN Cleanser and NIOXIN Scalp Therapy Conditioner helps optimize the scalp environment and promote the health of newly grown hair.
