              Because I have had some increase in hair loss lately, my stylist recommended that I start using the Nioxin System. I have only been using this shampoo for 3 months and haven't noticed any improvement in my hair yet. But, I have stopped losing any more hair. I am committed to using it for the long term. I just wish it wasn't SO expensive.

                      My stylist recommended I use this product because my hair is thinning so much. I've been using it for three years and I believe it's helping what hair I have remain strong and healthy. I've often wondered if it really is working but I'm hesitant to stop using it for fear my hair thins even more. I use the conditioner too.

                        • 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?

                          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."
