                I am older and not really dealing with thinning hair. However, this is a shampoo I use occasionally as it is so refreshing. Lathers great and rinses well. Love the smell and feel of shampoo. Have used this on and off for years.

                      Yes! Nioxin shampoos and conditioners are great for cleansing and moisturizing the scalp. You can use System 3 or 5 depending on if your hair is coarse or fine, and it should help.
