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.

            Due to a medication, my already fine hair was thinning and my scalp was extremely oily. The Nioxin Shampoo worked better than others at keeping my oily scalp at bay and gently cleaning my hair.

              I love this shampoo I just switched back to it bc I can't find shampoo that doesn't make my hair creasy the next. This makes my hair soft and non greasy. My hairs always been thin and now it's breaking more so hopefully this is will help it like it did in the past.

                      Although you should still see some results, for the very best results, Nioxin Cleanser should be used as a full system with the Scalp Therapy Conditioner and the Scalp Treatment.

                  • Q:

                    Can I use Minoxil with my Nioxin System 4 Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp Treatment? If so how should I use it twice a day the days I shampoo, condition and scalp treat? 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.
