      Comments about Nioxin System 3 Cleanser:

      I got my first taste of Nioxin in a free sample. It sat on my shelf for over two months before I even remembered it. I had just gotten my hair colored and cut and it said it was color safe so I decided to put it to the test. The first thing I noticed was the color, a lovely blue, then the smell. If you don't like spearmint scents, then this is not for you. I love the smell. When I used it my whole scalp tingles, the menthol in it, and felt so nice. I followed the directions exactly and let it sit in my hair for a few minutes and it literally felt like I was getting a gentle head massage. Rinsing wad the real test, I color my hair auburn red, and red color bleeds badly. There was NO color bleeding. After I dried my hair it was soft, shiny, movable, and it stayed that way for two whole days. I have VERY oily hair, I have to wash daily. Not using this. I can go two days without washing, its fabulous.

            I was advised to purchase this by an Ulta Salon representative and I am extremely disappointed. They are supposed to be educated in products and hair types. Was assured would not strip color, it has. Was assured would not weigh hair down, it was horrible.

                  Great product! I started using it about a year ago, I was trying to add more volume to my hair. People have commented on how full my hair looks today, it is noticeably different. I finally found a product that does exactly what I wanted it to do. It is a gradual process, so give it a couple of months.
