Comments about Nioxin System 3 Cleanser:

I was letting my hair grow out. More length equals more weight, and I have noticed that I lose more hair when it is longer and heavier. I would shampoo and so much hair would would end up in my hands and in the drain. I expressed this to my hair stylist, and she recommended Nioxin. I begain using it, and pretty immediately noticed a significant increase in hair loss. When I went back to my stylist, she pointed out all the new "baby hairs" (new growth) that was coming in. I just kinda brushed off her comment, but when I went home and looked in the mirror, I did notice quite a bit of new growth coming in. This product works by cleansing your scalp of leftover product, scalp-clogging sebum, and other scalp debris that can clog the hair follicls which may impede hair growth. It is tingly, and I feel it working. Every time I saw my friends/family they would remark "Oh my gosh, your hair has gotten so long!" And in looking at a seriew of pictures, it appears my hair did grow rather quickly--yeah, I know the common statement is that hair grows at an average is 1/2 inch per month. If this is the maximu, my hair CERTAINLY did grow at that rate (thought it seemed to me, to grow longer at a more rapid rate). I got a perm about 6 months ago and began using Decadence "No Poo" products; while good to my curls, yet again my hair started falling out. DEFINITELY going back to Nioxin! Worth the price to me!

    Comments about Nioxin System 3 Cleanser:

    Normally would not go for a system. Since chemo my hair is thinner. I do like to color. This system is ok for my color. Adds volume even to my baby fine hair. I swim a lot and still my color lasts longer. Highly recommend this system.

                      I like my light-weight styling spray in a pump bottle (not Nioxin brand) and would like to continue using it. Is there any reason I shouldn't continue using it after shampooing with Nioxin Shampoo 3?

                        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.
