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.

      The first time I used it, I had a tingly feeling in my scalp. I am finding less hair ending up in the tub after I shower. Using the conditioner as well. Both rinse completely clean, do not weigh down my fine wimpy hair.

                        I like that it really cleanses your hair and it smells minty. It also leaves your hair feeling soft and super clean. It helps with hair loss I just wish it would help with breakage.

                            Nioxin System 4 Cleanser is formulated for noticeably thinning, fine, chemically treated hair. Each System is designed for a particular hair type and condition. Please let us know the level of hair loss you are experiencing, your hair type (fine, normal, coarse/thick), and whether or not your hair is chemically treated. Thank you!
