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.

    Comments about Nioxin System 4 Scalp Treatment:

    I have very thin/baby fine hair and am always looking for ways to thicken it up and help it grow faster. This brand is the real deal! Using this scalp treatment along with the shampoo/conditioner has worked wonders for my hair. I tried ditching the scalp treatment for a while (gets expensive) and just used the shampoo/conditioner, but I quickly found myself scrambling to the store for more of the scalp treatment... it really does make a difference! Hair is stronger and growing faster.

            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.

                    A:

                    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?
