Nioxin has been serving the hair care community and its customers for nearly 20 years. In its arsenal of hair loss products this well reputed company offers 8 different hair systems, each designed to tackle a certain type of thinning or fine hair.
Nioxin begins by removing residue left over by other shampoos and styling products. Just as a crop can not grow if a blanket is placed over the dirt, you can not grow a healthy head of hair if your scalp and follicles are clogged with residual. Nioxin then gives your scalp a boost of vitamins, amino acids and essential oils such as Rosemary (known for its hair care and circulatory assistance properties) and peppermint (invigorates and treats the scalp).
Systems 1 to 4
Systems 1 through 4 are designed to treat limp or fine hair or hair. Depending on how advanced your hair loss is, and whether you have chemically colored or permed hair, there is a specific three-step system which targets the scalp to gently clean and nurtures it while thickening the hair follicle.
Systems 5 to 8
These systems were created to create healthy scalp and hair in those with medium to coarse hair that is in various stages of thinning. Again, depending on the amount of your thinning and whether or not your hair has been chemically treated, Nioxin will target your hair needs to maximize your hair and scalp health.
Why is a Healthy Scalp Important?
In a hair loss product review many factors have to be considered. Not only will a good hair loss product target the health of the hair but it must start at the root of the problem – the scalp. An unhealthy scalp is much less likely to produce its maximum hair growth potential. Build up from shampoos, conditioners and styling products can plug the hair follicles of the scalp and inhibit hair growth. Other scalp conditions such as inflammation or damage from UVA or UVB rays can cause or accelerate the hair loss process. By treating the scalp, as well as the hair, you double your chances of fighting your hair loss woes.
Although Nioxin is not able to re-grow hair from follicles severely damaged by the effects of DHT, it can help arrest hair loss due to an unhealthy scalp and it is an excellent addition to the hair loss regimen of those using Propecia or Rogaine.
