Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
I had significant hair loss/thinning due to a maintenance medication, severe enough that I had obvious bald patches. Nioxin System 1 has been a *life saver*. It doesn't completely stop the hair loss, unfortunately, but it has slowed it considerably. I no longer dread showering, brushing my hair or the terrifying roulette experience of putting it in a ponytail. My curls have come back, the thickness of each individual strand has doubled, and it's much softer and more manageable overall. I can't claim this will work for everyone as my issue is related to a specific medication, and it isn't a magical fix-it - I still have more loss then I'd like, I still have days where I'm itchy and uncomfortable and I'm afraid every move will result in more strands falling on my shoulders. But those days are far, far fewer and I am very grateful.
Oh, and a note to new users - the scalp cold/tingling sensation means it's working. If it doesn't tingle, leave it on a few more minutes until you start to feel it, then rinse. Some bottles that happens very quickly, sometimes I have to leave it on for almost 3 full minutes. It's not the most comfortable experience but it's worth it.
I just want to preface this by saying I have never been a person with particularly thick hair. I wanted to change that and I had heard a lot of hype around the nioxin product line so I decided to give it a shot. I found that my hair right above my forehead in my part began to thin drastically, now a month and half in I am having to do renourishing treatments and change routine completely. I wanted to strengthen my hair and it just fell out. Also, the shampoo really dries out your hair and the conditioner doesn't replenish all it strips your hair of. Bottom line, go for ANY other product. I would hate for someone to be as upset as me trying to figure out how grow a good portion of my hair back.

I have fine hair and I love this product. Its gives body and I use it daily. I will be purchasing this product again. It cleans hair of any buildup without stripping the hair. I use the conditioner for fine hair as well. Both products work well for my hair.

I've been using this shampoo for 14 years and it's the only one that both cleans my thin hair while protecting against fall out. I have long hair and took a medication that caused me to lose 1/4 of my hair. This product helped protect what was left while gentle on the hair that did come back.

Nioxin is the best shampoo for my hair
Maddie from San Antonio
I used this product to try to get more hair growth, didn't work for me. Really dried out my hair and after almost a year of using I saw almost no new hair growth or healthier hair. Even bought the Conditioner and Hair Growth serum drops. I'm using Redken Gold now which leaves my hair healthier and soft and I massage in leave-in conditioner on the bottom of my ends and bottom of my scalp

I have very fine hair, the hairdresser recommended this shampoo for me. Its fresh, invigorating peppermint smell and makes my hair look fuller and feel soft.

Wow. This stuff saved me! When I was about 27yo (female) my hair started to fall out pretty excessively. It was noticeable amounts of hair coming out in my hands every time I showered. I didn't even realize it was out of the normal until someone commented. Since I have used this, the amount of hair that falls out every few days is a minuscule amount compared to what would fall out daily! I absolutely love this product. Now I am 30 and I will continue to buy this. Young women lose hair too, and this drastically helps that!

I like this so much, so this time I bought it for my friend. It's pricey, but worth it!

Nioxin 1 for fine normal thining hair is the best product.
It make my hair feel clean, and full in texture.
I highly recommend this shampoo, because it stands by it's quality and results for your hair.

My usual thick hair has been thinning, either due to aging or medication I take. This product makes my hair look thicker.

This worked wonders for my oil control issue, however I used it once and i broke out in hives ALL OVER my upper body...I do not have a sensitve body for allergens, but this is burning itching hives all up and down my arms, neck, head and shoulders.... I was very hopeful for this product to be it, but on to the next. I would not recommend this to anyone else.

my hair was getting thin and frizzy especially in the front. I never knew it was actually thinning until a hairdresser told me. I went and got this RIGHT away hahah. this is a great system! totally recommend. my hair really started Transforming in just one month I feel like. I started seeing beautiful healthy volume and waves to my hair that were almost unrecognizable!!! consistency is key though, and since it's pricey that can be hard. esp if you have long hair. the serum is the best, my hair loves it. gives it volume and wave like a product would!
This is product is the one if you are looking to add some volume to your hair by treatment. I feel like this is a mix between healthy treatment as well as a product that makes your hair smooth shiny and thick. I got it first with the 3in1 kit, I recommend doing so to really start healing your scalp! however out of all the products this serums is the best!

It's sticky but works but messy and leaves my hair hard to deal with
Caitlin from North Dakota
I bought the trial kit to test out, only been using for a few weeks so I'm not 100% sure on the hair growth aspect but I noticed after the first wash that my hair looked fuller! I love the cooling feeling on my scalp when I use this but it is not as hydrating as other shampoo and conditioners I've used before. To combat this I just use a leave in conditioner after my shower and use a hydrating heat protectant as well! When I blow dry and style my hair it has so much volume and feels thicker then ever before! Love this stuff and will repurchase the full size kit.

Using this product for almost a year. It hasn't made a difference. I've only experienced more significant hair loss. I'm very sad it didn't help me.
I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for about a year. It hasn't helped my hair whatsoever. My hair has only gotten significantly thinner. I'm glad it worked for others. I wish I could say the same for myself. My self-confidence continues to go with my hair.

the scalp spray in with BLACK label .. I think it's #2 natural hair with progressive thinning.. he has thick long hair and this has helped majorly ... have not tried the other products yet just this scalp spray... another tip is using rice water once a week at most... rinse 1 cup of regular white rice.. add 2 cups of spring water to the rinsed UNCOOKED rice stir it until water becomes like a cloudy white.. cover and let soak overnight.. stir again then strain to keep the water and remove the rice... (it may have a sour smell that's ok).. now apply to hair massaging scalp, get all hair wet using rice water...leave on 10-20 minutes *DO NOT EXCEED 20 MINs* be sure you shampoo and conditioner as usual... rice has lots of protein which can dry your hair out if you use it too often or too long .. 10 mins 1x week if enough to stop shedding and repair hair

My first product to be used on my advancing "widow's peak". Too soon to say how it will perform yet. Not quite ready to try minoxidil 2% products. The ingredients list looks like this might have some small effect, so I'm giving it a try!

I have used this product for years .Iam a retired cosmetologist over 30 years experience. I have recommended Nixion to all my clients who had thining hair issues. They all loved it it works .It remves toxins off your hairshalf and scalp.Causes baby hairs to sprout.This product is good to use as a body wash as well.It draws the blood to the surface and feed skin and of course your scalp great stuff.
