      Comments about Nioxin Scalp Recovery Cleanser:

      I have extremely itchy and dry scalp. I've used this twice so far and I don't see any flakes or scalp build up any longer. My scalp however is still very itchy. I will continue to use this product regularly and hope the itching subsides with regular use.

        I just started using this product two days again and already my dandruff is almost gone. Not only does this product work it smells great, and makes my hair super soft and voluminous!! I have had a problem with a dry scalp for almost a year now and nothing worked. I tried tea tree oil, paul mitchell, and more. Nothing worked better or faster than this product! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

          I use this at lease every other shampoo. Just wish they made it in a bigger bottle. The price is a little pricey. But if it works than it's worth it..

            I had HORRIBLE dry scalp for a VERY long time and nothing I bought or used seemed to work! All the countless money I've spent on expensive products and nothing ever worked or even helped calmed my irritated scalp. UNTIL, I recently switched hair stylists and she recommended this product! I started with the smaller bottle and saw results almost instantly! I wash my hair with this every two days under cool - barely warm water and it does wonders! I am officially flake free, my hair and scalp feels great and I am never letting this product go!

              I have tried many products over the years for dandruff. This past year my scalp was out of control. Very itchy and a lot of dandruff. I found this shampoo and conditioner and have had no problems since! My husband had psoriasis on his head and it has greatly improved since using these products

                        • Q:

                          Does this product work for thinning hair? How does it compare to Nioxin 6. Do I need to use 3 products or can I get results with the use of 1 product? I do not have dandruff but I have thinning hair.

                            The Scalp Recovery Cleanser is formulated for dry, itchy scalp. We suggest to use one of the Nioxin Systems, as they are designed for thinning hair and to keep the scalp environment healthy to promote new hair growth.

                            For best results, we recommend that you use the Scalp Recovery Moisturizing Conditioner along with the Scalp Recovery Cleanser. Typically, users notice some results within 1-2 weeks.
