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:

      Been using the nioxin system for about a month and I don't notice any difference in my hair, and as of recently, I think I'm having an allergic reaction. Terrible itching on the back of my scalp. Only thing that's changed in my hair care routine is switching to nioxin.

      The spray was to strong. Once I sprayed it onto my hair it would run down my face. I then sprayed it on my hands and it made me break out.

      Comments about Nioxin System 3 Scalp Treatment:

      After using this product for a few months now, I have noticed new hair growth, my scalp is not as visible as it was before using this product. I no longer shed hair, I don't have to be picking strands of hair off my clothing any more, I can now run my fingers through my hair and not have strands come out like I used too. Plus no more palm full's of hair when shampooing my hair. Bottom line, I have a much fuller head of hair that is stronger and healthier than it has been in a long time.

      Comments about Nioxin System 3 Scalp Treatment:

      I like this hair treatment product line. I recommend it to anyone who feels their hair is thinning. I have seen improvement with my thinning hair. My hair is growing back where it had been a little thin. It is not an overnight change. I have noticed over the past 2 years how much my hair has become more full and the thinning spots have healthier hair growth.

          If your hair is normal to thin looking, choose System 5. If your hair is noticeably thinning, choose System 6.

      • Q:

        I just started using Nioxin 4 but I really have thinning at hairline and temple area on the right side. Should I just use scalp treatment where I have thinning? Also I prefer to wash my hair every other day.....do I still use scalp treatment in front and sides on "day old" hair? Thank you.
        Asked on 4/8/2017 by Linda from Parma OH

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          For optimal results, we do encourage daily use of all three products. However, every other day you will experience results, just at a slower pace. Scalp Treatment is meant to be applied to freshly shampooed, conditioned and towel dried hair. On the days you don't shampoo you should not use the Scalp Treatment. For best results, apply the Scalp Treatment all over your head, so you can benefit from the botanicals and vitamins. I would also suggest purchasing the Hair Booster. This product is an intensive treatment meant for the areas of concern, such as the hairline and temple area. It will help to regenerate this area where you are experiencing more hair loss. Apply the Hair Booster before the Scalp Treatment. Message both products into your scalp, do not rinse.

      • Q:

        I am a 37 year old Caucasian female. My hair is naturally very fine and breaks consistently (all over, but most noticeably at the crown). I also have it bleached/colored, so it's very dry. My mom's hair is the same but has never been bleached/colored. I have tried keratin products, oils, vitamins, no heat styling, not wearing hair pulled back, sleeping on satin pillowcases, and nothing helps. Hair is not thinning yet, but my Mom's looks kind of thin. She is 64. Would the System 3 products work for me? If so, do you have any suggestions as to which I should use?

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          System 3 would be great for you based on your needs and concerns. We also recommend to add to your System Kit 3 the Hair Booster. The Hair Booster is an ultra-concentrated formula with CoZyme-10 Vitamin Complex designed for low density areas. This boosts fragile hair against cuticle damage. Given your mother's history of hair loss, we highly recommend these products for both you and your mother. We hope this helps!

          For best results, Nioxin does recommend daily use. We suggest at least using every other day to ensure you see some results in 4-6 weeks.

          The less you use Nioxin, the longer the process will take for you to see results. We do recommend using Nioxin everyday or at least every other day to see results withing 4-6 weeks.

          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.
