            Comments about Nioxin System 6 Cleanser:

            I rinse and repeat and then follow with cheap conditioner. I used to use Head and shoulders because I have seborrheic dermatitis, but a coworker told me about this. I started using it a few months ago and my scalp only itches if I go for third or fourth day hair (which I rarely do). Also seems to help my thinning hair. Also lasts for a while (though I did buy a liter).

              I've been using this on and off for several months. It helps a lot with hair loss. I will say though, that daily use if you use the conditioner that goes with it dries your hair a little. I have now started using this shampoo a little less and in between using another product for smoothing hair and it is working very well. My hair is managed now. On to regrowth

                  This is a nice shampoo but does not really do anything more than L'Anza did. I was using that before I tried Nioxin.

                      A:

                      Rather than Rogaine, Nioxin recommends using their System Kits in conjunction with the Nioxin Minoxidil Topical Solution for best results. Minoxidil is the only ingredient clinically proven to effectively help hair growth. It is available in two strengths, one for men and one for women:
