              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...

                  • 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?

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.
