        This is reasonably priced compared to other thinning hair treatments. So far, I have only used the shampoo and conditioner and seem to see results already. I was leery of the side effects of Rogaine/minoxidil and decided to stay away from those.

                          • Q:

                            I have very oily color treated hair, fine hair with a lot of "pull out", meaning strands seem to come out when getting close to shampoo time, also a lot of lost hair after shampooing and conditioning in the drain after rinsing. My hair is noticeably thinning around my temple and front hairline areas. Don't need a lot of moisture as it makes my hair even more limp. Would sysytem 2 be appropriate .

                              System 4 would be your better option as it has the color protection in it. You will notice shedding in the beginning of using the products. We also recommend the hair booster for the temple areas.

                              System 2 - Noticeably thinning, fine, natural hair

                              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.

                          • Q:

                            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.

                              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.
