Nioxin System 2 Cleanser is a volumizing cleanser that helps to remove follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp and hair. Cleanses to provide thicker-looking hair for noticeably thinning, fine natural hair.

Technologies:

  • Scalp Access Delivery System with vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, while helping provide sun protection for the scalp.
  • BioAMP with cystine amino acids, and lightweight conditioning and treatment ingredients; helps provide thicker-looking hair by increasing the fullness of each hair strand, and reducing hair loss through strengthening against damage and breakage.
  • Activ-Renewal with white tea extract, peppermint oil and cleansing agents to help cleanse and provide a refreshed scalp environment and healthy shine to natural hair.

                          You should not combine Nioxin System #2 with Rogaine, as the combination would be too harsh.

                        I just started using the System 2 and I'm wondering how to style my hair. typically I use a gel and hairspray. Is using a gel and hairspray recommended along with use of the Nioxin product? if not what is recommended to style my hair?

                      • Q:

                        I have very oily color treated hair, fine hair with a lot of "pull out", meaning strands seem to come out when getting close to shampoo time, also a lot of lost hair after shampooing and conditioning in the drain after rinsing. My hair is noticeably thinning around my temple and front hairline areas. Don't need a lot of moisture as it makes my hair even more limp. Would sysytem 2 be appropriate .

                          System 4 would be your better option as it has the color protection in it. You will notice shedding in the beginning of using the products. We also recommend the hair booster for the temple areas.

                          The System numbers correspond to hair type and condition.

                          System 1 - Normal to thin looking, fine, natural hair
                          System 2 - Noticeably thinning, fine, natural hair
                          System 3 - Normal to thin looking, fine, chemically treated hair
                          System 4 - Noticeably thinning, fine, chemically treated hair
                          System 5 - Normal to thin looking, medium to coarse hair
                          System 6 - Noticeably thinning, medium to coarse hair

                          The System 2 Cleanser is a part of Nioxin's 3-step system kit. This consists of the cleanser, the scalp therapy conditioner, followed by the scalp treatment. We do recommend using all three products for best results, every single day when possible. When used as recommended, most will see results within 30 days in regards to density and body. While the product does help to encourage new growth, not every person will see this result. If it does happen, it usually takes about 2-3 months to notice a difference.

I lost my hair from taking some medication, now after ten years it is starting to come back on the top of my head. It is very short like a brush cut, but not really thick enough that I can not go without wearing a wig.

We do recommend using all three products for best results, every single day when possible. When used as recommended, most will see results within 30 days in regards to density and body. While the product does help to encourage new growth, not every person will see this result. If it does happen, it usually takes about 2-3 months to notice a difference.
