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.

        makes my hair shed

        By ly

        from California

        Comments about Nioxin System 3 Scalp Treatment:

        I had my first 3.4oz bottle on July 2016. When it did nothing for my hair, I figured I needed to use it for longer so I bought the 6.8oz version and my hair has/is still shedding incredibly more than normal since I started and decided- No, this is not the way to go for maintenance & prevention for my full/normal amount of fine hair. I'm 29 years old with a good amount of hair, just fine. Now it looks less abundance after using this. Totally not happy...

              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 love this. It really works when you use it on scalp and leave in. I have very thin hair in several areas of my scalp. It is the absolute easiest and best product for hair follicle growth

                  A:

                  System 3 Scalp Treatment should be applied to damp, towel dried hair after shampooing and conditioning. Apply directly to entire scalp. Gently massage into scalp. Do not rinse. Daily use is recommended for best results.

                  A:

                  Never mix Nioxin system kits with Rogaine. The combination is too strong and can cause irritation.

                  A:

                  I would recommend that you try the Scalp Recovery Treatment kit. This contains Shampoo, conditioner and a moisturizing serum. These three products work together to create the best environment for a healthy scalp and hair. The end result is less hair shedding and dandruff control.

                  A:

                  That depends on if the follicles were damaged. If they are, this will not help those damaged follicles to regenerate and grow new hair, however, Nioxin will treat the rest of your hair creating beautiful, healthy and lush looking hair.
