      Comments about Nioxin Hair Booster:

      I have used Nioxin products over 20 years. My hair was very thin at the time I started to use it. My Mother and three sister had/have very thin hair. Nobody believes me that I use it as it has kept my hair from being thin. ( actually restored it).

            Have used it only a few times since received, so cannot judge effectiveness. Using it twice daily is unrealistic. It leaves MY hair with a certain frizzyness that I did not expect. Will try for a little longer, but don't have high hopes at this time.

              Comments about Nioxin Hair Booster:

              I've tried multiple products for my thinning hair and Nioxin is the only brand that has resulted in a noticeable difference (most improvement is in my hairline). I use the cleanser, scalp therapy and hair booster (I'm not impressed with the styling products). Nioxin is fairly expensive (especially the Booster), but well worth the price. It's a relief to no longer be so self conscious about my thinning hair.

                          I love Nioxin products. Most of the products I use are Nioxin, but this one made my hair extremly dry. The cost for this product is high and it did not help my hair at all. I used it for about a week and my hair looked terrible. Everyone has different hair so it might work on some people, but for me it was a waste of money and it took over 4 weeks to get my hair back in shape. I would not recommend this product.

                              How frequent the system 2 product be used? For example, the hair booster, it says twice a day before the scalp treatment. However, it is not clear how frequent the scalp treatment be used or how many times a week the shampoo/conditioner should be used. Would you please clarify this? Which way will be the most effective one?

                                The Hair Booster is used in addition to the three step System Kit, it does not replace the Scalp Treatment. Hair Booster is used after the Scalp Therapy Conditioner, on towel dried hair. The Scalp Treatment is used after the Hair Booster. The Hair Booster is used twice a day- so it is used one more time aside from when the hair is washed.
