    Comments about Nioxin System 1 Cleanser:

    I have only been using for a week or so, but after first use with the conditioner my hair has never felt more soft or healthy. I can't really notice any added volume at this point but will continue to use. I personally love the smell. It smells like peppermint and provides a bit of a cooking sensation. If you don't like that type of feeling on your head you likely will not enjoy this. My hair is very fine and gets greasy easily. I have been washing my hair daily with this shampoo and I put dry shampoo in my hair daily too just to keep my hair from looking greasy at the end of the day (likely from over washing) but I didn't need to use dry shampoo to combat oils with this shampoo felt that my hair was soft but not greasy when I didn't put any product in my hair. My hair feels healthy and I love the cooling from the peppermint. Gave it 4 stars since I haven't seen much difference in volume since buying but hasn't been very long yet.

          Very simply, when I don't use my Nioxin for about a week, my hair thins. When I start using it again, my hair thickens and remains healthy and youthful for as long as I use it.

                        We recommending using the three part kit daily for the first 4-6 weeks. This allows the shampoo to thoroughly cleanse the hair follicle to remove dirt, debris, and sebum.

                        We recommend a quarter size dollop for your shampoo. You can use any styling aids after the scalp treatment. We do recommend waiting a few minutes after you apply the treatment so it can dry on the scalp.
