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.

              • 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?

                  A:

                  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.
