    Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

    I have thin, fine hair. I use it every morning prior to blow drying hair. It iAds thickness/volume without a sticky or goopy feel. I do use a 2 nd product with it, but the change came when adding Nioxin to my routine.

                  After you wash and condition your hair, dprsy Fiamax lightly throughout your hair. Comb through, then blow dry and style hair. A little goes a long way. Does not leave residue on your hair.

                          This product is not for me. Didn't like alcohol was listed in top ingredient. Second it contains niacin, which can cause flushing. Can interact with certain meds, ask your doctor. This product made my scalp itch, and gave me terrible headaches.

                              No, this product is not a hair growth product. It is designed to plump each individual hair strand for thicker, fuller looking hair.

                              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!

                              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.

                          • Q:

                            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.
