      Comments about Nioxin 3D Styling Thickening Spray:

      Not too excited about this...I've had better and I've had worse. My hair does feel a tad thicker but it also feels a tad dried out after using. Will continue using at least a few more times but I don't see me buying it again.

                  I have alopecia areata. I purchased the kit that has shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment. I also purchased the thermal care spray , mouse and hairspray. It really adds volume to thin and thinning hair. Has a great smell. I have used a lot of products but this is the best. I'm very self conscious about losing so much of my hair because of the alopecia but Nioxin really does add volume to the hair I still have.

                            What's the difference between this and the diamax serum? Would using both be overkill because they do the same thing, or suggested because they complement each other?

                              The Thickening spray is used to enhance the hair when blowdrying. It is great for adding both volume and texture to the hair. The Thickening Spray has hold and the Diamax does not. The Diamax is used when you are trying to thicken each hair strand. I would suggest if you are looking to strenghthen your hair you use the diamax. You can use both if you wanted, but I would only suggeset that if you want a hold and to treat the hair.

                              The Thickening Spray is a different product than the Spray Gel, although it is what we are recommending to use in its place. The Spray Gel was discontinued. You may find that the Thickening Spray gives a little more volume and hold.

                              The Thickening Spray is, in fact, what we typically recommend as a replacement to the Root Lifter. It is not a direct replacement (i.e., it will not give identical results), but the results achieved with the Thickening Spray at the root area are most similar to those of the Root Lifter.
