              Comments about Nioxin System 2 Cleanser:

              I started rapidly losing hair after losing weight this year. My hair was very thick and after seeing my hair on the pillow and clothes everyday, as well as people starting to notice it was thinning, I needed to do something.

              I have been using this product for almost 4 months now. My hair is long and before it began thinning was quite wavy. It's now very straight and thin. After the first use of this shampoo and conditioner together, my hair went back to its natural state and I had a good amount of volume. That's great, but for almost $50/bottle I want real results, not just ones you can "see".

              After about a month of use (I also was taking hair vitamins) I noticed new hair growth, but my hair was still falling out at the same, if not more or a rapid pace, but I decided to stick it out to see if this would work.

              After 3 months, the hair falling out for the most part is less. Some days it seems to be more than usual, sometimes the same, and sometimes not at all! I continue to have new hair growth and have noticed my hair to start to thicken up a bit. It's nowhere near where it used to be, but it's much better than where it was!

              I will say, as mentioned before, I use both the shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis. I also stopped using other products on my hair for the first 30 days (now I use products as needed). I also take biotin vitamins daily. I'm not sure if it is the nioxin, or a combination of things, but I will definitely continue to use until I run out. Then I will go back to regular shampoo and see if I notice a difference at all.

              I definitely think it's worth a try.

                        The System numbers correspond to hair type and condition.

                        System 1 - Normal to thin looking, fine, natural hair
                        System 2 - Noticeably thinning, fine, natural hair
                        System 3 - Normal to thin looking, fine, chemically treated hair
                        System 4 - Noticeably thinning, fine, chemically treated hair
                        System 5 - Normal to thin looking, medium to coarse hair
                        System 6 - Noticeably thinning, medium to coarse hair

                      Can this help to grow hair back. I have lost a lot of hair. I do have to take a lot of medication.
                      Can this product help or at least thicken what hair I have left?
                      I try to cover up but it is getting harder and takes me forever trying to style it.

                        The System 2 Cleanser is a part of Nioxin's 3-step system kit. This consists of the cleanser, the scalp therapy conditioner, followed by the scalp treatment. We do recommend using all three products for best results, every single day when possible. When used as recommended, most will see results within 30 days in regards to density and body. While the product does help to encourage new growth, not every person will see this result. If it does happen, it usually takes about 2-3 months to notice a difference.

                      Do you use this along with something else? How long do you need to use this before you see results? I lost my hair from taking some medication, now after ten years it is starting to come back on the top of my head. It is very short like a brush cut, but not really thick enough that I can not go without wearing a wig.
