    Comments about Nioxin System 3 Cleanser:

    My hair being so fine it kinda just lays flat to my head with no type of lift what's so ever. I started using this product due to hairdressers request & actually it really helped my hair. I've tried a lot of volumizing shampoo & this really does the trick. Helps give lift, makes your hair feel a little thicker, & I have less breakage. I ecommend this product!

                  My stylist said it would help my hair thicken up. I've recently lost a lot of weight and my hair is falling out as a result. I've used a whole bottle and my hair does seem to be growing fast but I don't know about thickening.

                        Nioxin formulated this product for chemically-treated hair, but if you have any concerns, it's always smart to consult your colorist prior to use!

                        For chin length fine hair, use a quarter size diameter in the palm of your hand. If your hair is very soiled, two shampoos would be necessary.
