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:

  • 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.

        I buy what works but try to stick to the lower side of cost when possible. This product has been very good for me but wish it were possible to have a more pleasant smell....and still do the job.

                Daily use. I liked that first couple of washes, I could see fuller hair. Does not weigh hair down, its worth the $$. I tried all brands for thin to fine hair and some worked for a little while, but as the day goes on, it looses it's fullness. This shampoo lasts all day.

                    My thinning hair is slowly starting to show some new growth. I also use the Nioxin Conditioner. The one draw back I see is that it takes a long time to show improvement. However I think that is because of the time it takes hair to grow and not any fault of the product. I will continue to use Nioxin products.

                          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.

                          A:

                          For best results, only one system should be used, since there is only one system that is the best match in regards to hair type and texture. There are no adverse side effects if you discontinue use of Nioxin, but we do recommend using the product indefinitely if you want to maintain the results you see from the product.

                        I currently use the System 4 cleanser and shampoo...should I be using something stronger than #4, since I am noticing more hair loss/receding @the temple areas? I have FINE color-treated hair.
                        Thanks!

                          System 4 is designed specifically for noticeably thinning, fine, color- and chemically-treated hair. This is the System that is recommended to best treat your hair type and condition.

                          We recommend daily use for best results. If this is not convenient, then we say to wash as often as possible. The more often the products are used, the better results one will see!
