Nioxin System 3 Scalp Treatment, normal to thin looking, fine, chemically treated hair. A volumizing leave-on treatment that contains antioxidants and botanicals that help provide a refreshed scalp environment for normal-thin looking hair.

Technologies:

  • 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.
  • Glyco-Shield for chemically-treated hair and scalp with white tea extract, humectants, peppermint oil, and protective conditioning agents that deliver a dual shield technology to help provide protection and moisture balance to color-treated hair, while leaving the scalp feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

        Comments about Nioxin System 3 Scalp Treatment:

        I have very fine, thin hair. I use generic rogan and started adding the Nixon #3 and my hair started looking thicker. Two different hairstyllist have noticed growth in my hair. This is hereditary my brothers are balled on top and my mother and sister both wear wigs. I thought I too would be wearing a wig by now but since I started using the two products I don't have to.

                  I wash my hair every 5 to 7 days. It seems to stay beautifully radiant. Would using the product so infrequently still be helpful. I'd like not to over wash my very long hair. Thank you for your help.

                  My husband uses System 1, I would like to start using it but have highlights... can we both use System 3? Would there be any significant difference in the results if he uses System 3 vs. 1?

                    A:

                    System 3 is specifically formulated for normal to thin looking, fine, chemically treated hair, while System 1 is specifically designed for normal to thin looking, fine, natural (non-chemically treated) hair. For best results, we recommend using the System that is designed specifically for your hair type and condition; however, if you both wish to use the same System, we suggest using System 3.
