              My hairstylist began using it 20 years ago to repair damage to my chemically treated permed and dry hair and although I've long since moved onto a different hairstylist and stopped perming my natural hair, consistently using Nioxin products has kept my hair in great condition all of these years!

                          Is Ulta website an official distributor of Niaxin products? Niaxin website doesn't have Ulta name on their list of salons so I just want to make sure they are your supplier as I have experienced replicas. Thanks!

                            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.
