    I bought this upon the recommendation of a fellow shopper and so far I like it. I've only used it for a week, and I know it will take much longer to know for sure if it is effective, but so far, so good!

          Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

          I've only been using this product for a short period of time, but on the days I use it, my hair feels thicker (think pulling into a pony and/or running hands through hair). I love this product because it does not make my hair appear greasy or oily after application. However, it does smell a bit like hair spray when applying, which is a little off putting. The smell doesn't seem to linger afterward though, thank goodness!
          Something else I noticed is that a bottle empties quite quickly! Since the product is pricey to begin with, this makes using the treatment regularly a bit expensive, which is a downer for me (trying to save $$).
          Overall, I recommend this product for thin/fine hair, just expect to pay a bit and need a new bottle quickly.

                      Yes, this product can be used daily on wet or dry hair and on hair of all textures. It is especially ideal for fine and thin hair, because it works to increase the thickness of each hair strand for the appearance of fullness and volume.

                      The Diamax Advanced will offer more strengthening and is applied from roots to ends. It also makes the hair look like it has 11,000 more strands on the head, whereas the Diamax is 5,000 more strands.

                  • Q:

                    I wash my hair at night, will it still increase the diameter of my hair if I use this after I shower and let my hair dry overnight? Or do the effects of the product only last for a certain amount of hours after application? Also, how much should I be appying to my hair? The bottle states to use generously, but some reviewers state that they use a tiny amount on their fingertips. Thanks!

                      A:

                      The results from Diamax are accumulative, so the more it is used, the better results one will see. Results do not fade out after a short time period, nor are they shampooed out. However, the product does need to be continually used to maintain the results. Per application, up to 15 pumps can be used. However that is the maximum and some people feel it is only necessary to use about 6-10.

                      A:

                      The two products can actually be used together. Diamax has a plumping effect to expand each individual hair strand to boost volume, while Hair Booster delivers nutrients to the hair to help strengthen it against breakage. We recommend applying Hair Booster first, followed by Diamax, when using together.

                    Is this product designed to fluff up the cuticle of the hair? I have curly/frizzy hair, the strands have become thinner with age but it still looks best when cuticle is smoothed, not fluffed up/expanded. If this product fluffs up the cuticle, it won't work for my hair type. Thanks.

                      A:

                      No, Diamax is not interchangeable with the Scalp Treatment, as they do two different things. The Scalp Treatment will safeguard against buildup and strengthen the hair from breakage. Diamax will increase the thickness and diameter of each hair strand. Apply Diamax last after the Scalp Treatment and before any styling products.

                      A:

                      Diamax does have an accumulative effect, meaning the results gradually get better and better with each use. However, if one stops using the product, eventually the results will fade away. The product can be used on wet or dry hair.

                      This product is a leave-in treatment product to be applied to hair after shampooing and conditioning. It can be applied to damp or dry hair. Apply generously throughout the scalp. Massage gently at the hair roots. Do not rinse off. Use daily for best results.

                      This product is not a heat protectant; it is a hair thickening treatment. For heat protection, use with Therm Activ Protector (Item #: 2263538).

                      Diamax Treatment does have the consistency of a serum. You can certainly use it in conjunction with your styling products such as Volumizing Reflectives Bodifying Foam (Item #: 2255075), as Diamax does not provide any hold.

                    Do you use this after you shampoo and condition your hair or is it actually the shampoo?

                      Yes, this product can be used with other styling and treatment products. For best results, apply this product first, focusing at the scalp and hair roots, then layer additional product(s) over it.

                    I have naturally wavy hair that used to be thick but as I have reached my mid 30's and have been coloring my hair for quite sometime it has inevitably started to thin out. Looking for a product to give me fullness without frizz. Anyone living in rather humid conditions had any problems with a side effect of frizz with the volume? I always get frizz with any volume any other product has given me. Thanks for the help!

                      A:

                      Diamax is only applied at the root of the hair. It is designed to expand the diameter of the hair strands themselves, making each hair fuller and thicker. It does not provide hold at all, so most users still need to use other styling products as well. As it is only applied in the root, it does not help with frizz. It performs well in humidity, in the sense that your hair strands will retain their fullness even in humid weather.

                      Diamax is a leave-on treatment that can be used with the Nioxin 3-part systems for thicker, denser-looking hair. Apply Diamax after System 4 Scalp Treatment for best results.
