Nioxin System 1 Scalp Treatment is a volumizing leave-on treatment that contains antioxidants and botanicals that help to provide a refreshed scalp environment for normal-thin looking hair. For normal-thin looking, fine, natural non chemically treated hair.

Technology:
  • Transactive Delivery System with antioxidants, botanicals, vitamins, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, leaving the scalp feeling clean and refreshed.
  • BioAMP with cystine amino acids, and lightweight conditioning and treatment ingredients; helps provide thicker-looking hair by increasing the fullness of each hair strand, and reducing hair loss through strengthening against damage and breakage.
  • Activ-Renewal with white tea extract, peppermint oil and cleansing agents to help cleanse and provide a refreshed scalp environment and healthy shine to natural hair.

Where have you been all my life?!

      Best Uses

      • Thin hair

      Comments about Nioxin System 1 Scalp Treatment:

      I use this after every washing. Combined with Paul Mitchell invisiblewear volume whip, my hair has SO much volume now. It's too early to tell if it's helped with thinning, but my mom has used this for 6 months and its made a noticeable difference in her hair.

      I'm hitting the big 4-0 this year and in the past few months I've noticed considerable thinning. I hope it helps.

      Nioxin formula 2018 is changed

      By Lottuss

      from Sweden

      Comments about Nioxin System 1 Scalp Treatment:

      Due to the last 2018 product update some really good and useful ingredients were removed. For example Serenoa Serenoa Serrulata Fruit Extract which shields against residues & DHT build up on scalp, hydrolyzed keratin and all vitamins and minerals. Why? I really now doubt that this product will work as it did before.

      So far yes.., but it's only been 2 weeks

      By Eli

      from West Palm Beach, FL

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Nioxin System 1 Scalp Treatment:

      I have only been using for 2 weeks and have not really noticed any hair growth, but I do notice that my scalp is healthier. I used to get plugs of waxy buildup on my scalp. Like fine pore sized debris. It also seemed that this congestion was causing my hair to grow in finer. It is definitely to early to tell if my hair is thicker. I do enjoy the tingly feel of this cleanser and conditioner. I also bought the on scalp treatment. So far I am satisfied. It does not volumize your hair.

              • Q:

                I have used Bosley and other products but they did very little. I have naturally curly hair that I must color due to all the gray. I saw that there are three different systems on the Nioxin brand. I did not see one for my hair. It is NOTICABLY falling out with patches of very little hair on the crown. What would be the best system for me?

                  Great Question! We recommend shampooing for one minute, then rinse. Then you would condition and leave that on for three minutes, then rinse. Once you are out of the shower, you will towel dry your hair and apply this treatment on the scalp, rub it in and leave it on until the next time you wash your hair.

                  Great Question. We recommend shampooing for one minute then rinsing. Conditioning for three minutes then rinsing. Lastly, you will towel dry your hair and apply the scalp treatment and that will stay on until the next time you shampoo. The Scalp Treatment is a leave in product that only goes on a freshly washed scalp.

                  This product is formulated with peppermint oil and menthol, so you might feel a slight tingle and warming; however, if it's uncomfortable, please discontinue use. Please note it should never feel like a burning sensation.
