      This product is effective if used with the other
      Nioxin products selected for your specific hair
      conditions. I love the regular coupons for Ultra
      products and therefore always purchase my Nioxin
      products at Ultra even if I have to drive farther
      to get them. Also like the savers program. Thank
      you.

          Apparently,this particular product is not for my hair. I recently went to my hairdresser for my color and she commented how dry my hair was. WOW! I only used this product twice. I will be taking it back to Ulta for a refund. Hey,I gave it a try. What works for one person doesn't always work for everybody else. Or, "one size doesn't always fit all."

            It supports new hair growth. I was going to try Bosley, but they don't offer as many products as Nioxin. Its a great product. I've been using it almost 1 year and have more hair now. No daylight on the scalp anymore. Lol

After a few min I remove towel and continue w other hair products.

              I use it with other two products, the shampoo and the conditioner. They are a little bit expensive for the price I used to pay for hair products but since I use the three products combined I have seen good results. I started buying the products in Ulta for the coupons but the reward program is very good and help a lot with the pricy products.

                  A:

                  Please use the System that most closely matches your hair type and condition. For noticeably thinning hair, we suggest one of the following, according to your hair type and condition:

                  System 2 - fine, natural hair
                  System 4 - fine, chemically treated hair
                  System 6 - medium to coarse hair

                  For best results, use the 3-Part System including the System 4 Scalp Treatment every day or as often as you can. When used daily, 9 out of 10 users notice improvements in hair density and thickness within 30 days of use.

                  A:

                  If you already have the System 4 Scalp Treatment, please feel free to use that. In the future, you can use the System 2. We recommend continuing to use the Scalp Treatment along with the System 4 Cleanser and Scalp Therapy, but we suggest adding the Hair Booster to the mix. You can apply it once in the morning and once at night onto clean or dirty scalp. Direct it onto the problem areas, and it should help invigorate the scalp to promote hair growth.

              • Q:

                Since I permed my hair a year ago, I have not been washing my hair every day. I wash it twice a week; on the remaining days I simply rinse it out and let the curls air dry. 1. Will it be of benefit to apply the Scalp Treatment on the days I just rinse out my hair, or do I need to wash/condition it first for the Scalp Treatment to work? 2. Will I only see results if I wash, condition, and apply the Scalp Treatment EVERY day? So far I have not seen a difference in hair growth, and I am still losing hair.

                  A:

                  The Scalp Treatment should only be applied to a clean scalp; therefore, the days that you are not washing, you will not apply the Scalp Treatment. For best results, use the 3-Part System everyday or as often as you can. When used daily, 9 out of 10 users notice improvements in hair density and thickness within 30 days of use.
