Nioxin System 4 Cleanser for noticeably thinning, fine, chemically treated hair. A volumizing cleanser that helps remove follicle-clogging sebum, fatty acids and environmental residues from the scalp and hair. Cleanses to provide thicker-looking hair.

Technologies:

  • Scalp Access Delivery System with vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, while helping provide sun protection for the scalp.
  • 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 4 Cleanser:

          I noticed that my hair is thinning, and that's not ok. I've only been using this shampoo a short while (so I can't say if anything is growing back), but I can already see changes (for the better) in my hair. It looks and feels like it has a little more volume, and not nearly as much hair is falling out when I shower or brush it.
          The smell is kind of minty too, which I love. I'm definitely going to keep using this.

                Using product for over 20 years. While other men my age are nearly bald, including my younger brother, my hair continues to be full, thick, with very little loss. Use with scalp therapy. Number 4 has extra moisturizer in it, good for our dry climate.

                  I had hair loss, and what I had left was very brittle and dry, breaking easily. I spent days obsessing and crying over my hair loss. After eliminating all other possible causes, I'm 99% sure this was a result of my birth control I had been on for many years. I tried many products and THIS WAS IT - the only thing that helped improve the overall quality of my hair, and I think also helped reduce shedding. I have been using for 3 months and my hair looks like new. People notice it and compliment me. I thought I might never get my hair back, and did thanks to Nioxin. Highly recommend for anyone going through the same thing.

We do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals. COTY voluntarily ceased testing finished cosmetic products on animals in 1991, long before the official European ban on such testing in 2004, and we have been actively involved in the research and development of alternatives to animal testing for many years."

                          I would start out trying the Minoxidil for women 2% first to minimize irritation, especially if you are using the Nioxin system kit. You should shampoo, condition, towel dry and apply your scalp treatment, then we recommend waiting 4 hours after the Scalp Treatment to apply your Minoxidil, this should be done in the morning. Then again at night apply your Minoxidil before bed.
