Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
The Nioxin system was recommended to me by a colorist at a salon I went to who was a cancer survivor. She raved about how well this stuff helped her hair grow back after her cancer treatments. So what the heck, I ordered it.
I have lost a good deal of my hair partially due to some medication that I take and I'm sure some of it is just the naturally aging process. I had crazy thick hair all of my life so I was going through a bit of a crisis trying to figure out what to do about my hair loss. This stuff has worked for me! I have 1" hairs sticking up all over my head in only 6 weeks! I now use no other shampoos or conditioners. There is no medicine smell and my hair is beautiful and shiny.
I have thick wavy/curly islander hair but I've noticed it thinning the past few years. I've used Nioxin for about 2 months now, the shampoo, conditioner, and the leave in treatment (System 4) and I honestly haven't seen any new growth... or thicker hair. It's made my hair appear healthier (shinier, less dead-ends), but that was not my entire intentions. I wanted my old hairline and fullness back. I'll give it another month in hopes that I see some results. Not impressed so far with the price I'm paying.

Since Menopause I've been losing my previously thick hair, I've been using these products for almost 3 months now and I can definitely see the difference. My stylist said she is seeing a bunch of short new hair all over my head
As to the condition of my hair, I have had no problems with my hair drying out, it looks just as good as it does with any other shampoo and conditioner

Started having hair loss and this absolutely is wonderful! My hair is actually thicker than before!
Diane from Bangor Mainr
I bought this to help restore my previous thick hair. I've lost hair due to chemo drugs. I tried this as it was for color treated hair. I used it once along with the conditioner and my hair was extremely dry and brittle after using. Will not use again as I don't like what it did to my hair.

I have been recently having a lot of hair, shedding and dryness. I decided to try this line of products, and after only one use, I immediately felt a difference in my hair. I am looking forward to continuing to use the product to help strengthen my hair.
Becca B from Colorado
I on used this product 2x, it made my hair like straw. It felt so dry and tangled, it took me forever to brush out. can't use
Babzie from Mesa, AZ
I just started using this product a week ago, and already like it. My hair feels and looks fuller. I have noticeable thinning at the top of the head and minor thinning on sides. It's mainly for the scalp, so I use Nexus conditioner for my hair.

I use the entire Nioxin system for hair care for fine hair styling.
Michelle from Indio, CA
My hair stylist recommended this hair treatment system as she could see my hair loss was getting worse. I was so excited to finally see my hair grow back, but I've had ZERO results! NOT happy about all of the money I spent on these products!
Anna from Tarpon Springs
Used once and returned. My hair felt terrible where I applied the product. I had to rewash my hair.

My husband and I both use this with our prescription shampoo from the derm. This hydrated my long hair, while helping with new hair growth. I've noticed new hair growth around my temples and hair line. Let this product sit and soak into the scalp before rinsing!
Becks from Alaska
I needed something that would clean my hair but yet make it strong anything. This is it. I have fine bleached hair. My hair feels so clean and fresh that I don't need to shampoo it everyday and I use way less dry shampoo. Very happy
Wendy from Waxahachie, TX
I've only used this a couple of times, but I can tell a difference in how my hair feels. I've got a lot of breakage from weight loss surgery, and this was recommended. There's some other products I want to try, but this is a great start!
Mary Jane from Houston, TX
Only shampoo that makes my hair feel clean. All other shampoos make my hair feel to greasy. I also love the conditioner.
Harriet from Raleigh NC
I am 73 and have been using this wonderful shampoo and its foaming treatment in the number 4 for color treated hair for over 10 years now and it has made such a difference in my hair. Not only does it do a great job but it doesn't affect my red color!!
Mims from VA Beach
I'm pretty skeptical about product claims, but my hair really does seem to have more volume and body when I use this brand.
Tracy from Northville
So I'm a 52 year old woman and my hair hair has thinned, a lot. My girlfriend said Nioxin helped her after pregnancy, so I decided to try it. I've been using the 3 product system for 3 weeks now, and I have lost more hair in this time than in the previous year! I'm wondering if my girlfriend's hair naturally recovered after pregnancy, and it was NOT due to Nioxin. I am in peri-menopause, and this harsh shampoo has been a nightmare. BEWARE!!
Teresa from Minnesota
I started using Nioxin over 10 years ago when I noticed my hairline receding. It works! I'm 70 years old and have beautiful hair which I have foiled. I get compliments all the time on the color and how healthy it looks.
Amy from San Bernardino
I use the shampoo every other day. I do two washes on the second wash, I tend to leave the product meanwhile I wash the rest of the body.
Cassie from Cleveland, OH
I used this product for the first time this week. I accidentally got a little on my neck as some product was left over on my hands and I touched my neck. I broke out in a terrible rash on my neck. Then noticed my scalp was bright red as well. I have never experienced anything like this before with any shampoo, conditioner, or scalp treatment.
Selena from Miami,FL
I used this some years ago as one of the last steps in my daily Nioxin regimen. As a conditioner it actually worked surprisingly well on my hair, but for hair loss I didn't notice anything beyond a slight reduction in the amount of hair I was shedding - whether in the shower or when brushing it. Perhaps 20% less than before. In all I used it for a good few weeks. The only reason I stopped using it was because of the amount of menthol in it, which over time aggravated my scalp more and more until I put it to one side and allowed my scalp some time to return to its normal state, using a Sulphate-free shampoo sparsely, no conditioner at all. I find this to be a common occurrence whenever I use a product with this ingredient. Without the excessive menthol added, I'm sure this could have worked well. Hopefully a re-formulation is in the pipeline...I'd be happy to try it again just for its conditioning benefits, hair loss for me thankfully no longer being an issue. -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

I have colored fine curly hair. I've always shed a lot of hair, but I don't think I've shed more than when using this set. I've been using it for over a month, and have lost so much hair. The drain catcher is full, my comb is full, and my hands are covered in hair. My hair feels so dried and tangled after. I usually use products without sulfates so I don't know if that's why my hair felt like straw. Literally the only thing I liked was the tingly minty feeling on my scalp. I just used a different shampoo for the first time in over a month and barely had shedding. This didn't help at all for my thinning
Tamika from Dfw
It thickens my hair, prevents shedding and most of all my scalp really feels refreshed.
Diane C from NJ
This dramatically reduced my shedding, but you have to use it properly and consistently. First of all, I will say that I don't use the shampoo or conditioner. I have curly hair that is finicky when it comes to a lot of products (IYKYK). I use this foam morning and night applied to my scalp and massaged in for about 10 seconds. I no longer have shed hair all over my bathroom, car, desk, etc etc. and my shower drain is much easier to clean when I get the hair out - it's what I consider a normal amount. This goes on sale regularly.
Rhandi from Alabama
I have really thin, fine hair and due to health issues, it has gotten worse this past year. My hair dresser recommended this product line to me to try and help with scalp care. I have been using it for about a month now and so far, I love it. My hair does feel thicker from the treatment product included, without feeling stiff/sticky/greasy. Also, I do have very oily hair, but I have noticed that this helps prolong that so I don't have to use dry shampoo as much.
The only thing I do not like, is the scent. It smells like peppermint. However, by the time I finish styling my hair, at that point it doesn't smell minty, it just smells clean.
I know this product is pricey, but to me it is worth every penny!
Evelyn from North Carolina
This product was recommended By my stylus I started losing my hair because of my medication. I am so happy that I thought of using this product my hair feels thicker and fuller.
