        Comments about Nioxin System 5 Cleanser:

        I have had really bad itchy build up on my scalp since high school. While I did see one specialist so far he prescribed a scalp spray to soothe the itchiness but because he didn't see any build up (one of the few rare days I sometimes get blessed with) so he didn't provide me a scalp shampoo/conditioner; and believe me I have tried a lot of scalp shampoo/conditioners - nothing was working. 2 years ago I was at the highest stress point of my life; I wasn't getting enough or good sleep, I wasn't eating healthy and always stressed from work, to include weight gain (slightly elevated thyroid). All of this affected my hair - constant itching, thinning and falling out fast. I only use a non-alcoholic hair spray on my hair at the time and use the towel for excess then air dry. I only use a wide tooth comb and comb from the bottom up as to not pull out my hair and yet STILL there was a lot of hair coming out. I thought I was hopeless.
        Since then I have a new job - I eat A LOT healthier (more veggies & fruits, no pop/sugar loaded drinks, no more fast food & only on cheat days might I eat something processed like pizza), drink more water, take vitamins (biotin & fish oil), I lost weight, exercise more, sleep more and better. I feel this needs to be stated because "products are not going to fix the underlying issue". What we put into our bodies and how we treat our bodies affects the physical appearance - creates symptoms. Products are to assist but not fix, see a specialist if a condition is bad. That being said, I added Nioxin 5 shampoo/conditioner and my hair is stronger, thicker, itches RARELY, build up IS RARE like I can't tell you how heaven sent it is to not scratch/hit my scalp. I still only use a wide tooth comb and air dry but I added one last product for a total game changer - 21 Benefits by Pureology. I'm very simple when it comes to hair so everyday hair is usually down because I love my wavy hair. Get healthy and these 2 products ASAP, you won't regret it.

          • course hair, that is falling out

          Comments about Nioxin System 5 Cleanser:

          My hair has always been very course, and very thick. When I started going through menopause, I noticed my hair was coming out in fist fulls when I would wash it, or brush it. I started using the Nixion for course hair. I honestly think it has helped with the hair falling out, and it makes my hair very soft and shiney

                            I wash my hair every two to three days. I'd like the kit, but would like to know if I must wash my hair daily, or can I just use the foam daily?

                              Although Nioxin recommends daily use to see maximum results, you can certainly adjust frequency of use as needed.
