    Only a Week and Noticeable Change

    By Crazy Dog Lady

    from Northern California

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Good for thin hair

    Cons

    • Drying

    Best Uses

    • Adding Body To Fine Hair
    • Correcting Thinning Hair

    Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

    I have used this only one week and already see a difference in my baby fine, thinning hair. It is more manageable and easier to style. I can't say I have noticeably thicker or more hair yet, but it does seem like it's going in that direction.
    The only con is that this is drying to one's hair. I have oily hair anyway, but since starting to use it, I have been religiously using a leave in conditioner to counteract the drying effect.

                                            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!

                                              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.

                                              Dermabrasion is an in salon service treatment that should only be used once every 30 to 45 days. It is not a daily treatment.

                                              The products should be used in this order: cleanser, scalp therapy conditioner, scalp treatment, Diamax.

                                              It adds diameter starting at the root, and as you continue to use it, the thickness will travel down the hair strand.

                                              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.

                                              This product does not have a "fluffing" effect; rather, it expands the diameter of the hair strand for the appearance of thicker hair.

                                              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.

                                              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.

                                            How do you use this product? If I wash my hair and blow dry and use this product do I need to use the Nixon Mousse? Does it protect against blow drying? Is it like a serum?

                                              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?
