Most Helpful Positive Review Love it
I had significant hair loss/thinning due to a maintenance medication, severe enough that I had obvious bald patches. Nioxin System 1 has been a *life saver*. It doesn't completely stop the hair loss, unfortunately, but it has slowed it considerably. I no longer dread showering, brushing my hair or the terrifying roulette experience of putting it in a ponytail. My curls have come back, the thickness of each individual strand has doubled, and it's much softer and more manageable overall. I can't claim this will work for everyone as my issue is related to a specific medication, and it isn't a magical fix-it - I still have more loss then I'd like, I still have days where I'm itchy and uncomfortable and I'm afraid every move will result in more strands falling on my shoulders. But those days are far, far fewer and I am very grateful.
Oh, and a note to new users - the scalp cold/tingling sensation means it's working. If it doesn't tingle, leave it on a few more minutes until you start to feel it, then rinse. Some bottles that happens very quickly, sometimes I have to leave it on for almost 3 full minutes. It's not the most comfortable experience but it's worth it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Do not use
I just want to preface this by saying I have never been a person with particularly thick hair. I wanted to change that and I had heard a lot of hype around the nioxin product line so I decided to give it a shot. I found that my hair right above my forehead in my part began to thin drastically, now a month and half in I am having to do renourishing treatments and change routine completely. I wanted to strengthen my hair and it just fell out. Also, the shampoo really dries out your hair and the conditioner doesn't replenish all it strips your hair of. Bottom line, go for ANY other product. I would hate for someone to be as upset as me trying to figure out how grow a good portion of my hair back.

I started using this 10 years ago and I have my hair. My genes say at this point I should not.
Sami509 from DC
I bought this set July 2019. I was losing a lot of hair while studying for the bar exam, and during a hair cut, my stylist saw that my hair was thinning and my hair roots were smaller than they should be. I see dramatic improvement after finishing all the products. If I had to rebuy anything, it would be the shampoo. I love how clean it made my scalp feel.

I bought this on a recommendation from my hair dresser to help thicken my fine hair. I wash my hair every day so it may work better when you do that because I felt like it made my hair thicker. I couldn't see straight into my scalp anymore. I feel like it cleans my scalp, other shampoo use to build up on my scalp, which I think was part of my hair loss. After a few weeks of using I noticed short hairs, new hair, in some of my thinning areas, like in my part. Because of those things, I don't care to use any other shampoo ever again.
it seems to really work

Works Great on Thin/Prone-to-Grease Hair
Megan from Minneapolis, MN
This product has helped me grow and thicken my hair which is very fine and gets greasy very quickly. I went from a bob to long hair in months. It was truly astonishing. It has a nice minty smell too.
Shorty from WV
I started using Nioxin years ago on the recommendation of a hair dresser when my hair was dry, brittle, falling out and simply unhealthy. I decided to get a perm in my hair recently and purchased the products the hair dresser (different one) recommended. I am seriously dissatisfied with the (expensive) products and am now ordering Nioxin. My hair is dry, falling out all over the place, unkempt looking and I no longer get compliments on how healthy my hair looks. I will be happy when my hair quits falling out everywhere and looks healthy again.
Best anti-thinning system!
xrainexangelx from Duncan, BC
I am a stylist and this is my go to product for customers with thinning hair. I have seen almost full heads of hair loss grow back to just hair finally stops falling out. I also use this system for myself, not because I'm thinning but, because I don't want to thin. It still promotes a healthy scalp.

It was okay. Didn't notice much of a difference. The smell was okay, and my hair felt healthier.

Rachel from Denver, CO
I purchased this product because I have little thinning on the side of my hair near my hairline (pretty sure a lot of people do if they part their hair on the side.) I bought the system 1 for it to see if it would help. I've been through the 33oz bottles and while I haven't noticed any more or less thinning in the area I was concerned with, I have noticed that my hair has grown. This is the longest my hair has been in my 26 years of life. The only things I can think of that would've helped it grow, are the Nioxin shampoo and conditioners. I also only wash my hair 2-3 times a week which could also help. I've bought the system 2 to see if it would help with the thin spots and will see how it goes. Will probably be using this shampoo and conditioner for many years to come.
Amazing clarifying shampoo!!!

Strips your hair of over oiliness, and allows it to soak conditioner in well. Gets rid of dandruff.

I have fine thin hair (might be the PCOS) so I was excited to receive this in exchange for my review. I haven't seen drastic results, I am still working on finishing the bottles, but my hair does feel thicker than usual after using. The smell is a bit strong and my scalp tingled a bit while using.

Great on itchy scalp!
Merry Mary from Michigan
I use the System 1 kit for Light thinning hair, natural color. When I started using Nioxin products, I was using a lot of shampoo/conditioner, but my hair never felt clean and my scalp itched 24/7. Finally, my head began to ache all over, and I heard about Nioxin from an online support group. It was expensive, but I was desperate, and I decided to try it. Wow! Best thing I ever did for my hair. After only one use, the itchiness subsided significantly, and my head no longer ached. After about a month, my hair felt fuller and much much cleaner. There was also significantly less breakage. After 3 months, my hair was full and healthy again, with lots of volume And I only needed to use a small amount, so the cost was actually comparable to how I was using the cheap, but brand name shampoo & conditioner. I also appreciate that the scalp treatment is included in the set; I probably would not have tried it otherwise. Now, I use Nioxin exclusively, and will never go back.

I have tried many products like this earlier but this one is best I have ever tried. This works great and leaves my hair softer and healthier than before. I didn't see much improvement in the growth of the hair but it really improved the texture of my hair. My hair looks super healthy, shiny. I am hoping with continued use of this product will definitely help me in getting the needed thickness of the hair and will protect my hair from breakage.

I was super excited to try this out, being a mom of 4 plus getting older your hair seem to get thinner and decided to try this out. It hasn't been long enough to see a drastic change but my scalp and hair feel amazing plus the minty smell is just lovely and lasts all day!
I & a friend will be buying this product again
Red the senior from Hometown, IL
I use this product along with Shampoo/Conditioner every 2 weeks for about a month & 1/2 now. It helps me keep the hair I have. I'm very happy with this product. I love it.
Didn't work for me
Maria from Oc
I bought 2 of these kits to make sure I was using it long enough to see some difference . Sadly I didn't see any difference . It also gave my dry skin patches in guessing I was sensitive to the product.
I saw no difference in my hair .
Other then that it smells good . And I enjoy the mint smell .
