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.

          I have really thin fine hair and this shampoo makes it look like I actually have hair on my head by giving it some volume. It also has helped my hair stop breaking and falling off as much. It smells like peppermint. I'd recommend it to anyone but it is pricey.

          Comments about Nioxin System 4 Cleanser:

          I began using this product when my hair started falling out when I shampooed it. At age 56, I was diagnosed with alopecia (female pattern balding), and began using this product on the advice of stylist friend of mine. With the first use, my hair stopped coming out in the shower. I still notice more hair coming out when I brush it than I'd like to see, but I guess you can't fight mother nature completely.

                Did you mean to ask a question about Nioxin System 4 Cleanser (this product)? Nioxin System 4 Cleanser functions as a shampoo and should be rinsed out.

            • 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. Full ingredients for each product are provided within the product description at Ulta.com for easy reference.

                If your hair thinning has worsened and you now have noticeably thinning hair, yes, System 4 would be the best system for your hair type and condition.

              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.
