                      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.

                            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.

                            What system is best for naturally 'silver' hair to remove product build up and to condition the scalp for new hair growth?

                              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).
