          I bought this part of the system and I can't return it... unfortunately. I've used it twice and it leaves my hair sticky , stiff and hard to comb through. I don't even know how to use this now.. May have to give it away. I even added oil to help with the combing but that did nothing.

          Comments about Nioxin System 4 Scalp Treatment:

          Definitely helps to make my hair more voluminous. However, it does make it difficult to run a brush through my hair after application. Super great for thinning and fine hair, helps keep style all day.

          • Q:

            Does the scrap treatment need to be done once a day? I am currently using Rogaine , can I begin using Nioxin immediately after I stop using Rogaine or do I have to wait a period of time before starting Nioxin?

            • Staff Expert

              A:

              The Scalp Treatment and Rogaine are not to be used together. You should only use the Nioxin Shampoo, Conditioner and Rogaine. If you want to stop using Rogaine altogether, you may begin using the 3 step products after you have stopped using Rogaine. I would recommend waiting 2 weeks. The Scalp Treatment should only be used once a day, after shampooing and conditioning.

            • Staff Expert

              A:

              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 choose to use Minoxidil, it should be used with the Nioxin Scalp Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner rather than the System Shampoo & Conditioner to avoid irritation.

              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.

              For best results, System 4 Scalp Treatment should be applied to damp, towel dried hair after shampooing and conditioning.

          • Q:

            I just started using this product and followed the instructions, applying directly to scalp on damp hair, massaging in, and then combing through. However, I've found that once my hair has dried, it's a bit stiff, as if I put hairspray in it, particularly at the roots. Is this normal? Is there a way to prevent it?
