                  A:

                  All of the systems will help to cleanse the hair and scalp, but if the main focus is dandruff, we would suggest to use the Scalp Recovery Cleanser (Item #: 2235091).

                  If your hair is noticeably thinning, choose System 4. If your hair is normal to thin looking, choose System 3. Either 3 or 4 is suitable for color-treated, fine hair.
