  • Transactive Delivery System with antioxidants, botanicals, vitamins, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, leaving the scalp feeling clean and refreshed.
  • 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.

                        Yes! Nioxin shampoos and conditioners are great for cleansing and moisturizing the scalp. You can use System 3 or 5 depending on if your hair is coarse or fine, and it should help.

                        A:

                        If you have natural hair (meaning is NOT permed, colored, or relaxed), you would fall under either System 1 or System 2, which are both for natural hair. System 1 is for normal to thin looking hair, and System 2 is for people who are noticeably thin(more exposed scalp showing than hair).
