                    Comments about Nioxin System 4 Scalp Treatment:

                    My hair is thinning right at the front. I followed the package directions and also watched several YouTube videos about application. The #4 comes out as a foam. Some are sprays. I think the ones for noticibly thinning hair are foams. The first thing I noticed is it immediately runs down my forehead. You need to rub in really fast. I can deal with that. What I really dislike is when it dries it leaves my hair crispy/sticky and somewhat shiny. It think it actually makes the thinning more noticible! It's like highlighter for my thinning hair! I'm so disappointed.

                          • Q:

                            Should I use this everyday even if I don't wash my hair everyday, or only when I wash it? My hair loss is from weight loss surgery in 2013 and I've started to lose my hair again. I have been using this product for about a month now and so far I am not noticing a difference. (shampoo, conditioner and foam) But still optimistic that this will help.

                              Please use the System that most closely matches your hair type and condition. For noticeably thinning hair, we suggest one of the following, according to your hair type and condition:

                              System 2 - fine, natural hair
                              System 4 - fine, chemically treated hair
                              System 6 - medium to coarse hair

                              We do not recommend using the Scalp Treatment in conjunction with Minoxidil. You should only be using 1 topical treatment, either the Scalp Treatment or Minoxidil.

                              If you already have the System 4 Scalp Treatment, please feel free to use that. In the future, you can use the System 2. We recommend continuing to use the Scalp Treatment along with the System 4 Cleanser and Scalp Therapy, but we suggest adding the Hair Booster to the mix. You can apply it once in the morning and once at night onto clean or dirty scalp. Direct it onto the problem areas, and it should help invigorate the scalp to promote hair growth.

                              The amount will vary by individual. On average, the Scalp Treatment is 4-8 pumps per use. Apply it directly to a clean, towel dried scalp and massage it in with your fingertips.

                            I get my hair dyed (for gray coverage) every 4 weeks. Will this affect the dye? Any special instructions or recommendations for dyed hair?

                              The products within System 4 are specifically formulated for chemically-treated hair, so all are safe to use with no adverse effect on your color.
