Comments about Nioxin System 4 Scalp Treatment:

I started using this product a few years ago when I noticed that my hair was getting thin at the sides of the hairline. Using the scalp treatment (along with their shampoo & conditioner), all the thinning areas filled in & my hair looks great!

      • Q:

        Where is the best area to apply this product? Only scalp or entire hair? Cuz when I put it on my hair, it makes my hair so sticky, uncomfortable and very hard to comb through.

      • Q:

        Resubmitting w/correction:

        I have the Nioxin #3 kit, after reading online I think I should have purchased the #4. I'm 40, I have mildly coarse FINE, dry, curly hair, blow dry a few times a week low heat, and I color every 6 weeks for gray. I have increased hair fall but no noticeable thin patches; however I have been suspicious of an area that I sleep on. Should I use 3 or 4 and is it advisable to use 3 with 4's scalp treatment? Im planning to also buy the mask.

          A:

          Hello! The only difference between System 3 and System 4 is that as System 4 is designed for noticeably thinning hair, so it has an SPF to protect the scalp against sun damage. They both have the same effectiveness. The SPF is the only difference.

      • Q:

        I've been using the Nioxin shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment since June. I've seen some improvement with hair density and growth, but my hair is extremely dry and brittle now. I just saw my hair stylist and she told me to discontinue using the shampoo and conditioner but to continue using the scalp treatment. I've seen mixed answers on using the foam scalp treatment. I've been using it every night on washed or unwashed hair. Is this okay to do? Please inform me on this. I wash my hair every other night and have been using the scalp treatment on wet and dry hair. Thank you.

          A:

          The Scalp Treatment only goes on freshly washed, Damp hair and stays in utnil the next time you wash your hair. It is not to go on dry hair ever. If you can use the Nioxin 3D Intensive Deep Protect Density Mask twice a week for added moisture.

      • Q:

        I wash my hair 2-3 times per week. Does the scalp treatment go on wet hair after conditioning? Does it get rinsed? Can it be used in between washings on s dry scalp?

          A:

          Great Question. This product is great for those who have gone through chemotherapy. We don't recommend using during the treatments though. We always suggest consulting with your doctor prior to using it to ensure it is safe at that time.

      • Q:

        I want to make sure I'm buying the right product for my hair loss. About a month ago I noticed a small bald spot on the top of my head. I got worried because I've always had thick hair and suddenly I had a bald spot which got bigger within a week or two. I asked around what it could be and I was told stress could be the main cause of it. I also stopped by a store which has healthy, animal cruelty free products for hair and they used a camera to check and told me it could be that my pores are just blocked, but they suggested I go to a dermatologist, but I just moved and haven't even tried going because I feel like maybe it is stress. So my question would be would this help me cure my bald spot and keep my hair healthy or is there something better that may help and not have any side effects?

          A:

          The best advice I can give you would be to see your dermatologist to rule out Alopecia Areata. In the meantime, if you have fine, noticeably thinning, chemically-treated hair, you can try the Nioxin System 4 Kit. The kit contains a shampoo, conditioner and a scalp treatment to help facilitate healthy hair growth.

      • Q:

        Does the scrap treatment need to be done once a day? I am currently using Rogaine , can I begin using Nioxin immediately after I stop using Rogaine or do I have to wait a period of time before starting Nioxin?
        Asked on 7/2/2017 by Thin hair from Langhorne Pa

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          The Scalp Treatment and Rogaine are not to be used together. You should only use the Nioxin Shampoo, Conditioner and Rogaine. If you want to stop using Rogaine altogether, you may begin using the 3 step products after you have stopped using Rogaine. I would recommend waiting 2 weeks. The Scalp Treatment should only be used once a day, after shampooing and conditioning.

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          We do not recommend using the Scalp Treatment in conjunction with Minoxidil. You should only be using 1 topical treatment, either the Scalp Treatment or Minoxidil. If you choose to use Minoxidil, it should be used with the Nioxin Scalp Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner rather than the System Shampoo & Conditioner to avoid irritation.
