Product Review: Nioxin

I was lucky to be a part of the #NioxinNowInIndia activity arranged by BlogAdda.  The venue was Nalini and Yasmin, Wella Salon, Bandra.

Natasha and Harsh, the hair stylists briefed us about the product and gave us all the necessary 'khabar' about it!

Read my experience here. Today, in this post I am going to review my month long use of this product. I am personally using the treatment daily and I can feel the difference. I would share my experience.

NIOXIN has developed the following new definition of hair thinning based on scientific, stylist and consumer insights. Thinning Hair = A Poor Scalp Environment + Fewer Hair Strands + Finer Hair Strands!

A close look at hair biology reveals three areas that can impact hair appearance and condition:
  • Scalp and hair environment- Derma
  • Hair growth cycles – Density
  • The change of hair structure over time- Diameter
NIOXIN then approached the formulation of its products by linking the three components of thinning hair to these factors, and then formulating real science-based solutions with its 3 therapies-
  • Derma renew service (Facial for scalp): cleansing hair and scalp to remove sebum and residues,
  • Density protect: conditioning and protecting hair to help reduce hair loss due to breakage,
  • Density repair: by thickening each hair strand.
The Nioxin products come in 6 systems according to hair type. My scalp condition was matched to System 5.

System 1: for fine, natural (no chemical treatments like color, highlights, perms, or relaxers), normal to thin-looking hair.

System 2: for fine, natural, noticeably thinning hair.

System 3: for fine, chemically enhanced (color, highlights, lowlights, perms, or relaxers), normal to thin-looking hair.

System 4: for fine, chemically enhanced, noticeably thinning hair.

System 5: for medium/course, natural, normal to thin-looking hair.

System 6: for medium/course, natural, noticeably thinning hair.

If you crave thicker and fuller hair Nioxin have the solution. The Nioxin System Kit 5 for Medium Thick & Coloured Hair is a 3 step program that has been specially formulated to strengthen and thicken each individual hair strand to prevent breakages within just 4 weeks.

This pack contains the following products:

Nioxin Cleanser 5 - Refresh hair and scalp with this first step. Its cleansing formula will remove the daily residue that can build up on hair. After two weeks of using this every time I washed my hair I grew to quite like it.  It deeply cleansed my scalp and hair and removing all residues and left over products.  This shampoo has a minty fragrance which helped with making my hair feel squeaky clean.

Nioxin Scalp Revitaliser Conditioner 5 - The lightweight formula of this conditioner has been specially formulated to control moisture balance. Apply this from your roots to your tip.  This conditioner is lightweight and works really well!

Nioxin Scalp Treatment 5 - This final step has been formulated with antioxidants and botanicals that refresh scalp environment. Spray this on your scalp after washing your hair, but only after towel drying, as if your scalp is wet then you might feel a bit of tingling as the product gets to work. 

My Views:

The Nioxin system claims to provide 5 effects for thicker looking hair:
  • Reduces hair loss due to breakage
  • Delivers denser-looking hair
  • Amplifies texture
  • Strengthens hair against cuticle damage
  • Cleanses excessive sebum from scalp

Nioxin does not re-grow new hair, it doesn't even claim to do so, but helps you keep the hair you already have.  My scalp feels cleaner and healthier than ever before. The scalp feels cool too, all thanks to the minty, refreshing Nioxin! It has given more volume to the appearance of my hair. More manageable and stronger hair. Each strand feels different from the other.

Easy to use, but the 3 step process can bug you at times. But you need to do it religiously. No pain, no gain. You notice the difference in the long run as your comb glides down effortlessly!

My Mother plaited my hair last weekend and even commented on how she thought it felt thicker! You will re purchase it forever.
