Amazed at the results

By shellbaby

Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

I've been using this product for 6 months. A lot of my hair fell out due to being very ill for a while, plus the general thinning that happens with age. A friend who was experiencing severe thinning recommended Diamax after getting great results. Once I started using it, I noticed the difference in my own hair right away - shinier, thicker and healthier looking hair without weighing it down. Now that I've used it for 6 months, my overall hair is much healthier and thicker. I also feel like this treatment coats the strands of hair, making the strands stronger. My hair seems to tolerate heat, coloring and styling much better without breaking. My hair stylist has noticed the difference in my hair right away, and continued improvement and new hair growth over the past 6 months. She started recommending it to other clients. I would 100% recommend this product.

Pros

  • Expensive, but significantly less than advanced.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Helps hide thin areas on scalp.
    • Thicker looking hair.

    Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

    Helps my thin hair appear a little fuller, and helps hide the very thin areas. Diana's advanced does even better, but this one is enough if I am not going anywhere special.

    It makes my hair fuller, but of course its not going to make the hair more on your head. Slightly overpriced.

    Thickens Hair!

    By Cellipooh

    from Forest Ranch, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

    For those of you who have 'skimpy' hair, use this on towel dried, wet hair. It thickens those skinny strands and when you blow dry, you hair looks a little fuller.

    Danial suggested it and it adds body but is not heavy or sticky. Stand up in a hot commercial kitchen. It only takes a tiny portion to achieve the look I like. Thanks.

    Comments about Nioxin Diamax Treatment:

    I bought this for thinning hair as it was recommended by the stylist. Works well, just remember to massage in completely. Also, seems to work better if you apply a bit of heat when restyling.

    I love this stuff and have been buying it for years. It's a great thickener that doesn't weigh your hair down or make it crunchy.

    • Q:

      I have been using Nioxin # 4 system for years... I shampo, condition, apply the hair booster to damp hair followed by the scalp therapy. I would like to try Diamax.... But would this be too many products for my sparse hair? Should I eliminate either the booster or scalp therapy? Do these 3 extra Nioxin products work together?
      Asked on 2/4/2018 by Clubdawn from CT

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        The Scalp Treatment is vital for the system kit to work properly. The hair booster is meant for specific problem areas, but is not required. The Diamax will help with strengthening the hair and increasing volume. These products work together well, but if you feel this would be too much, we would recommend prioritizing your hair needs. Are you more concerned with hair your hair density, I would stick with the Hair Booster? If you are concerned with hair strands, I would recommend the Diamax.

    • Q:

      Hello! I am an African American woman and I have dreads in my hair. My hair is very thin in the front of my head, because it's so thin my hair came out. As of right now I just have a little bit of hair that's really thin and straight. I'm going to cut my hair and just stay all natural. Do you think you hair products would work on my hair?

        A:

        I would suggest starting with the Nioxin System 6 Kit. Then I would add the Diamax advance to repair your hair.

    • Q:

      Hi, you did not answer the question properly when another person asked you a question previously and I have the same question. The person asked:
      "I use Nioxin #4 and the bodifying foam. Do I apply this product last? Do I massage it on my scalp?? Can I comb it through my hair as I do the bodifying foam?"
      I also use system 4, shampoo, conditioner and scalp treatment. Do I use this after applying the scalp treatment, or instead, or in combination with the scalp treatment, or how? Also, I was recommended the Nioxin system by my hairdresser and was told to switch the systems every so often so that the product doesn't stop working, so I recently switched to system 3, the scalp treatment in system 3 is not the same as in system 4, it is in a form of a spray, whereas in system 4 it is a foam, why is that? and does the spray have the same effect as the foam? thank you!
      Asked on 3/14/2017 by Lana from Brooklyn, NY

      1 answer

      • Staff Expert

        A:

        The Nioxin Diamax Treatment is used immediately after you apply the Scalp Treatment. Diamax is a cosmetic thickener that strengthens the roots and hair with proteins. It is not necessary to switch system kits. A consultation tool can be found here:
        http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/image/Ulta/Nioxin_ConsultationTree

        It is best to stick with the system kit that fits your particular needs; the difference between Nioxin System 3 and 4 is, System 3 has a liquid Scalp Treatment and System 4 has a foam containing a sunscreen for scalp protection. Both Scalp Treatments are the same strength.

    • Q:

      Does the product permanently increase the thickness of your hair or is it only temporary once applied?
      Asked on 2/25/2017 by Kool-Aid from Oxnard, CA

      1 answer

      • Staff Expert

        A:

        Diamax does have an accumulative effect, meaning the results gradually get better and better with each use. However, if one stops using the product, eventually the results will fade away. The product can be used on wet or dry hair.

      For the last few weeks i have been wearing my natural hair gel back or gel up, to avoid using heat. But, I have been advised to used this product for my thin edges and my thinning crown. Now that I just start using this product. Can I still saturate my hair with this in addition to using the gel for the updos or ponytails?
