          I use the product every day at first because of a dry scalp prolem but it works so great and makes my scalp and my hair feel so great that I just use it all the time now. I don't really have anything negative to say about the product except that it is a bit costly.

            Comments about Nioxin System 3 Cleanser:

            After experiencing noticeable thinning due to a prescription drug, this shampoo has helped my hair rebound. (I stopped taking the drug, too.) My stylist said after four and 1/2 months that my hair was back to its normal thickness. I no longer see my scalp after my summer horror. I think this shampoo and the conditioner have also added a little texture/volume to my hair. I've never had a shampoo add volume, but it seems like my hair developed a little body. Also, it has a really refreshing, peppermint smell. It tingles a little, so very sensitive scalps may not tolerate this shampoo.

                          Yes! Nioxin shampoos and conditioners are great for cleansing and moisturizing the scalp. You can use System 3 or 5 depending on if your hair is coarse or fine, and it should help.

                          A:

                          If you have natural hair (meaning is NOT permed, colored, or relaxed), you would fall under either System 1 or System 2, which are both for natural hair. System 1 is for normal to thin looking hair, and System 2 is for people who are noticeably thin(more exposed scalp showing than hair).

                          You choose the system based on your hair type now, as the systems are designed to optimize the current condition of the hair and scalp. If your hair is fine, choose System 4.

                          A:

                          The numbered systems correspond to the indication (hair type, condition, and texture) that each is designed to best treat. System 3 is specially designed for normal to thin-looking, fine, chemically treated hair. For more severely thinning hair that has been colored/chemically-treated, we recommend System 4, which is specially designed for noticeably thinning, fine, chemically-treated hair.

                          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, natural or chemically-treated hair
                          System 6 - noticeably thinning, medium to coarse, natural or chemically-treated hair

                          Please note that Nioxin Systems are designed to suit specific hair textures and conditions. Please select the System designed for your hair texture and condition:

                          System 2: Designed specifically for noticeably thinning, fine, natural hair
                          System 4: Designed specifically for noticeably thinning, fine, chemically-treated hair
                          System 6: Designed specifically for noticeably thinning, medium to coarse, natural or chemically-treated hair

                          For best results use all three products within the System in conjunction with each other.
