How to Use
Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
I have used nioxin products in the past but I've never used a scalp exfoliator before. I have long hair and my scalp tends to get itchy and oily very easily. I always feel like the hair follicles on my scalp are clogged. You apply this product to dry hair. The packaging is a convenient squeeze tube. It does have a pretty strong scent but it's not unpleasant. You apply then massage for a few minutes and rinse out. My scalp definitely feels refreshed. I could tell it definitely helped get rid of all the excessive oil and product build up. My hair also didn't get as oily as fast. I will definitely continue to use this in my hair care routine. This is only to be used about once a month . I definitely recommend for anyone suffering from scalp issues or just want to clarify once a month
I wouldn't say that I can tell a huge difference in the limited time I've had this, but I will say that I do feel a little bit cleaner. This stuff is better than no stuff, so I recommend you have some type of exfoliator. But try out a couple of different brands to really find what product is yours. Recommended if you are in trial or if you don't currently have a favorite product.

I've only used it once and I'm still getting used to the best way to apply. Definitely follow the instructions for application. I noticed some spots that I missed after treatment, but overall I feel like it work well in combination with the shampoo, conditioner, and leave in treatment.

After trying several different scalp treatments, I found one that worked. My scalp has been itchy for a while, and serums with tea tree oil felt good but didn't fix the problem long term. Bought this product on a whim, after reading the reviews, and it worked like magic! As I was putting it in my hair and massaging my scalp, I couldn't believe all the flakes that were falling out of my hair. After washing and conditioning I noticed a big difference in how my scalp felt, and my hair was shiny and clean. I would definitely recommend this product, as it seems to really get rid of dry scalp instead of just soothing it like other products!

I struggle with seborrheic dermatitis, and when I tell you that I've tried hundreds of dollars worth of product, I mean it! The inflammation and build up made my hair look like it was thinning.. I don't write reviews very often, but this is the first product to ever work this well for me! I soaked my hair in the bath after using this, and when I ran my fingers through it, I was so shocked because my hair felt so much thicker that it actually felt like a wig!! Much less of my scalp is visible now!!

Great product for exfoliating scalp!
VB from Redlands
I recently had a shift in my health and my hair/scalp took a turn for the worse. I started getting very bad dandruff (never experienced it before) and after 1 use of Nioxin scalp, the dandruff disappeared! Thank you for the recommendation, honestly I'm soo happy.
V from AZ
This is a waste of money, don't think it made a difference and it does not exfoliate anything. I will stick to the products I know work.

Love I only need to use once a month, felt it worked first time I used it

I already said I plan to use this monthly before shampooing. I love how my hair feels and styles!
Sleepypup from San Jacinto, CA.
I've always had dandruff issues. My scalp just gets so dry, especially after dying my hair. I don't know why i never thought about exfoliating my scalp! This product really helps loosen up all the dry skin from my scalp. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

My daughter keeps asking to use it every night

Used as instructed, worked just as described. Left my hair and scalp feeling clean and fresh.
Sara R from Buffalo, NY
I use my Nioxin purifying exfoliator before washing my hair with shampoo. I have a dry scalp and this works amazing at getting any dry skin or build up on my scalp. My scalp feels so smooth and refreshed every time I use it, which is once a week. After my hair seems to lay better as well. It's been a game changer.
H.West from Wheeling Illinois
I used this product for the first time and was amazed at the results after one wash. Ive dealt with a horribly dry flaky scalp for a long time. It works wonders!
Even though the tube is small, you don't need a ton. So for the price, I do think it's fair.
Brandi84 from Athens TN
I have been using this product as part of my regular hair routine and I'm loving this exfoliator & what it's done for my scalp & hair! It makes my scalp feel so refreshed & clean without being harsh or irritating & takes care of flakes! My hair looks & feels healthier which makes me feel great! I'm very impressed with this product & would highly recommend it to anyone!

Wasn't exactly as good as I thought it would be but did help my scalp
Susie Q from Myrtle Beach SC
This product has to be applied to dry hair in quadrants so you definitely need some time to use it. It isn't a work morning type of hair wash situation.
Laurie from Spring, TX
I have being dealing with very dry and flaky scalp for long time. was able to see a difference after the first use. I have no longer the flaky and itchy scalp, which is great.
Monica from Md
Cons - small tube and expensive
Pros - gets the job done, don't need to use that often
Although it's nice to find something that finally works and gets all the flakes and built up dandruff and product out of my hair... The tube is extra small. I don't have a huge head but I've used about half of the tube in one use. The price is a bit high.. But overall I would definitely purchase again because it seriously does work. If you have a hard time with dandruff or build up I would highly recommend.. Combine this and one of those silicone scalp scrubbers . Just make sure to rinse it all out. It's totally worth the money.

I have pretty terrible scalp psoriasis along with dry hair form everything I use on my scalp. This product helped moisturize my scalp, remove large scales, and kept my hair healthy!!
MonicaC from Lebanon, PA
I have never used a product like this before and I was really impressed. It's simple to use and while I still see some flakes there are certainly a lot less and my hair and scalp feels much cleaner. I also noticed my hair is less oily than usual too which is a plus. I will continue to use this as I feel it has improved my scalp health.
Sarahe from Cleveland Ohio
My husband has super dry scalp in the winter time and has to work outside and wear hats. After one treatment his scalp and dandruff is completely clear. This never even happens with dandruff shampoos that are used every day. The application was super easy and work instantly. We will definitely be doing this treatment again as needed.
Aleksa1 from Devon, PA
Easily removes all flakes from your scalp. Use before shampoo and it helps best with a dry scalp skin. Still using it but for this 2 weeks I see big improve and I don't have to be ashamed with a "snow" in my hair while I am at work and on public
Kasee W from Haverhill, ma
Wow! My scalp has never felt better. I've always dealt with a dry scalp because I have very curly, moisture lacking hair and my scalp is very much the same. Well now I don't have to deal with that anymore! Nioxin Purifying Exfoliator is amazing and I'll never look back. Gets rid of all the build up of products in my hair, all the flakes and leaves my hair feeling fresher and cleaner than it's ever felt. Would definitely recommend!
TammyP from Texas
I was a little confused on how to use the product at first. Once I got past that, I fell in love with this product! I had just recently started getting dandruff for the first time ever. It was driving me insane!! My hair is dark so it was extremely noticeable! One was with Nioxin before shampooing and it was almost completely gone!!
dnatalinka from MN
Nioxin Purifying Exfoliator works very well for me. Keeps my scalp from flaking and itching. I love how my hair looks and feels healthier. Definitely recommend this to anyone with itchy and dry scalp.
