    Comments about Nioxin System 4 Cleanser:

    I was letting my hair grow out. More length equals more weight, and I have noticed that I lose more hair when it is longer and heavier. I would shampoo, and so much hair would would end up in my hands and in the drain. I expressed this to my hair stylist, and she recommended Nioxin. I began using the shampoo and conditioner, and pretty immediately noticed a significant decrease in hair loss. When I went back to my stylist, she pointed out all the new "baby hairs" (new growth) coming in. I just kinda brushed off her comment, but when I went home and looked in the mirror, I did notice quite a bit of new growth around my hairline. This product works by cleansing your scalp of skin-clogging sebum, and other scalp debris that can clog the hair follicles, which may impede hair growth. It is tingly, and I feel it working. Every time I saw my friends/family they would remark "Oh my gosh, your hair has gotten so long!" And in looking at a series of pictures, it appears my hair did grow rather quickly--yeah, I know the common statement is that hair grows at an average of 1/2 inch per month. If this is the maximum, my hair CERTAINLY did grow at that rate (thought it seemed to me, to grow longer at a more rapid rate). I got a perm about 6 months ago and began using Decadence "No Poo" products; while good to my curls, yet again my hair started falling out. DEFINITELY going back to Nioxin! Worth the price to me!

            I am a woman whose thyroid gland stopped working and other health issues caused a loss of hair. I started using Nioxin and it has stopped and slowed down the rate of hair I was losing. I love the minty smell and the tingle it give my scalp. I have passed it along to my son who is also experiencing hair loss. Give it a try, but don't expect increased hair growth.

My friend's beautician told her to use the men's fomula of Nioxin ... Is that possible and then just use once at bedtime? Thank you.

                          A:

                          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.

                      • 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?
