      I really do not have thinning hair, but my hair lies flat since it is long and straight, so I wanted to get a product to use to give my hair a little more boost. It worked on my hair a little bit, but not as much as I was hoping. Not sure if it is because my hair is not truly thinning

                        A:

                        We advise that alongside this product, you also use the Cleanser and Scalp Therapy Conditioner for System 4. Using all three products together help to establish the optimum health of the hair, and the scalp. By cleansing the scalp and ridding it of excess sebum and residue, it helps to clear the follicle sites, which may help to encourage new growth. It also helps to strengthen hair to reduce breakage, and to amplify body of existing hair.

                        You may use your Nioxin 3 part system right after your color service. For best results, shampoo with the Nioxin Cleanser# 4 and condition with the Nioxin Therapy# 4 conditioner and follow up with the Nioxin Scalp Treatment# 4. Should you experience any irritation, rinse your Scalp Treatment out with cool water.

                      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.

                        A:

                        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
