Nioxin System 2 Scalp Treatment for noticeably thinning, fine natural hair, a volumizing leave-on treatment containing antioxidants and botanicals providing a refreshed scalp environment. With SPF 15 sunscreen, helps protect the exposed scalp from the sun.

Technologies:

  • Scalp Access Delivery System with vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents to help clean away follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp, while helping provide sun protection for the scalp.
  • 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.

Comments about Nioxin System 2 Scalp Treatment:

I apply this product to the top of my scalp where my hair is thinning. It seems to work well. It also leaves my hair spot and silky. I stopped coloring my hair a while back and it is totally white now and this product does seem to help a lot.

Pros

  • Pleaseant scent, easy nozzle access

Cons

  • A little pricey but results are what's important

Best Uses

  • Hair

Comments about Nioxin System 2 Scalp Treatment:

I've been using Nioxin products for many years, and although it takes consistent use for a good period time, for me, it was six to eight months, I now have new hair where there was pitifully little before. Even though it takes a while, these products make your hair appear fuller while you wait, so count me in as a loyal customer.

    • Q:

      This product make my hair hard almost the same way hair spray does any idea what I could be doing wrong or is this normal?

        A:

        Nioxin has confirmed that this is a frequent comment from those with curly hair. This is normal. If however, you would like to soften the product, try using the Wella Oil Reflections. This light oil can be applied scalp to ends, with a nice soft feel and touch. You will love the smell!

    • Q:

      Will Nioxin actually help to regrow hair?
      Asked on 12/15/2016 by Thinning from North Carolina

      1 answer

      • Staff Expert

        A:

        9 out of 10 users notice thicker, denser-looking hair in just 30 days when using NIOXIN daily. NIOXIN Minoxidil is proven to stimulate hair growth. Using the proper NIOXIN Cleanser and NIOXIN Scalp Therapy Conditioner helps optimize the scalp environment and promote the health of newly grown hair.

        A:

        System 2 Scalp Treatment should be applied to damp, towel dried hair. Apply daily or as often as you are able for best results.

        System 2 Scalp Treatment can be used on ethnic hair; we also suggest using one of the Systems based on your hair type and condition, as well as the Hair Booster for best results.
