                  A:

                  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.

                How do I know which system to start with? I have fine, thinning hair, which is color treated, but there seem to be more than one option recommended for use. Also, would my husband, who also has thinning hair but is not color treeated, be able to use a color-treated version?

                  For fine thinning hair that is color treated, we recommend System 3. Yes, he would be able to use the color treated version but will not benefit from the Glyco-Shield Color Protector in System 3.

                • Staff Expert

                  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).
