Nioxin System 4 Cleanser for noticeably thinning, fine, chemically treated hair. A volumizing cleanser that helps remove follicle-clogging sebum, fatty acids and environmental residues from the scalp and hair. Cleanses to provide thicker-looking hair.

Technologies:
  • Scalp Access Delivery System with vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, while helping provide sun protection for the scalp.
  • BioAMP with cystine amino acids, and lightweight conditioning and treatment ingredients; helps provide thicker-looking hair by increasing the fullness of each hair strand, and reducing hair loss through strengthening against damage and breakage.
  • Glyco-Shield for chemically-treated hair and scalp with white tea extract, humectants, peppermint oil, and protective conditioning agents that deliver a dual shield technology to help provide protection and moisture balance to color-treated hair, while leaving the scalp feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

                        All of the systems will help to cleanse the hair and scalp, but if the main focus is dandruff, we would suggest to use the Scalp Recovery Cleanser (Item #: 2235091).

                        If your hair is noticeably thinning, choose System 4. If your hair is normal to thin looking, choose System 3. Either 3 or 4 is suitable for color-treated, fine hair.

                        For the best results, you should be using the Nioxin System daily; however, you can use it 3-4 times a week if that is your preference.
