  • 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.

Pros

  • Cleans Thoroughly

  • Keeps my hair from falling out

Cons

  • Doesn't Lather Well

Best Uses

  • Thinner Hair

Comments about Nioxin System 4 Cleanser:

I began using this product when my hair started falling out when I shampooed it. At age 56, I was diagnosed with alopecia (female pattern balding), and began using this product on the advice of stylist friend of mine. With the first use, my hair stopped coming out in the shower. I still notice more hair coming out when I brush it than I'd like to see, but I guess you can't fight mother nature completely.

          I have used this product for the last 4 months and my hair has taken a turn. I have growth coming in, I do not loose all the extra hair as before. My hair has improved in so many ways, it doesn't break like before, it's manageable, stronger and healthier. I wash every other day. Best product for my thinning hair.

                    • Q:

                      I have thinning hair on top because of thyroid disease, and I am on thyroid medication and vitamins. However, my doctor said I can use shampoos that specifically help my situation. I have very fine hair that is frizzy and very silky texture. I would like to use Nioxin as a trial but do not want to completely let go of my favorite shampoo (so far! - Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil Special - because it suits my hair so well and makes it very manageable and moisturized). Could I use both shampoos alternatively? Or do I have to exclusively use Nioxin products once I start the regimen?

                        Nioxin recommends daily use of the complete 3-part System for best results, but because you are under the care of a physician, we recommend to first consult your physician for his or her professional medical advice prior to changing your regimen.

                      Hey so I was wondering which one would be best for my hair since I died my hair once like 5 years ago but my hair falls off frequently. When I brush my hair it tends to fall out a good amount and when I shower it falls out a good amount as well. So I wonder which Nioxin would be best for me. Thank you.

Expiration dates are printed on the NIOXIN Systems 2, 4 and 6 only due to the UV protection in the ingredients. Manufacturer's suggestions are to use by expiration date."
