I’m a little conflicted when it comes to my hair. Sometimes, like when I go to vacuum or sweep or brush it out, it seems impossible there is any left on my head. However, most of the time it does a pretty good job covering the uhh, surface area. The NIOXIN Thinning Hair System is catered towards improving thinning hair, and there are six different options depending on what your hair is like.
I went with the NIOXIN Hair Thinning System 5*, which is meant for fuller-looking, moisturized hair. My biggest issue with anything promising volume is often that it achieves that by stripping your hair of moisturize and making it frizz, so I was really intrigued by the NIOXIN promise.
System 5 is specially designed for normal to thin-looking, medium to coarse, natural or chemically-treated hair. It delivers smoothing control to hair while refreshing the scalp and restoring moisture balance.
The 3-Part system includes a Cleanser/Shampoo, Scalp Therapy/Conditioner and a Scalp Treatment. I’ve only been using this line for a week, but I wanted to get my post up to let you know about how to become the Face of NIOXIN North America, so this will be more of a first impressions.
The NIOXIN Thinning Hair System 5 has a definite scent to it, but it’s not overwhelming and to be honest, it’s not one I can place either. I really appreciate that the NIOXIN Cleanser comes in a container that is twice the size as the conditioner, because I go through shampoo much quicker. This shampoo lathers well, and is fairly gentle to use while still getting all the product out of my hair.
I follow up with the NIOXIN Scalp Therapy Conditioner, which you leave in for a few minutes. In combination with the shampoo, I definitely found that these products left my hair soft, and they aren’t at all drying it out like most haircare that promises fuller hair does. I do find the bottles a little difficult to squeeze, but the conditioner is creamy and did a nice job detangling my hair.
The final step in the NIOXIN Thinning Hair System 5 is the Scalp Treatment, which is actually applied after the shower to your roots using a spray bottle. I am quite interested in this product because I do have a dry scalp, and I assume this treatment is what is really going to matter if the line does help with hair growth.
My first impressions of the NIOXIN Thinning Hair System 5 is that it leaves my hair soft and tangle-free, adding some volume but no major frizz. The products seem nice, but it is too soon for me to tell how effective they are. I will say that NIOXIN is the number one stylist choice for thinning hair in the US, and you can expect my final opinion in an empties post!
