Nioxin 30 Days On

 Just over a month ago I spoke about Nioxin hair treatment and now just over 30 days I think it’s time to touch base to share my experience.

When I was first offered the treatment I was a little worried that it could possibly be too strong for my hair and possibly make it worse. However, I thought I would never find out unless I tried it and started using the three step treatment every time I washed my hair.

The at home treatment consist of a shampoo, conditioner and scalp treatment spray. There are five variations of the treatments depending on your hair type and whether it has been coloured or not. Originally I got given the box number 5 however I feared that it could possibly be too strong and asked for a number 1 aimed at thin natural (non-coloured) hair.

They say this kit is

‘Designed specifically for normal to thin-looking, fine, natural hair, System 1 includes a volumizing cleanser, lightweight conditioner and a leave-in treatment to refresh the scalp, amplify hair texture and deliver a healthy shine.’
The shampoo and conditioner is used as you would any other, my kit made my head tingle a little but I have heard that not all the kits does this. Although some people may find this quite unusual it isn’t painful and begins to feel quite normal after a while. I used the conditioner simply on my ends and if you too have thin hair I would recommend doing the same. The other thing to note is you don’t need to much of this shampoo, just work it into your hair quite well- the bottle is quite small but has lasted me a long time considering I still have quite a lot left. 
I then follow my shampoo and conditioner with the scalp treatment once after the bath and having let my hair dry a bit. I concentrate it on my scalp especially where I think my hair is slightly thinner and then follow withh any other hair products and blow dry my hair.

I half don’t want to sit here and say that I actually think this works having used it for just over a month but in all honest I really think it does. It claims that after 30 days you will see a difference and although it may not be a major difference that can be seen by anyone else, I am much happier with my hair. My hair has grown quite a lot in the last month, I think it feels fuller and healthier.

I would continue using this shampoo although I would swap it in with a different shampoo every now and then. I actually think I will repurchase this soon (although maybe not instantly) which is saying something as I usually just use which ever shampoo is to hand. 

Read my initial thought of Nioxin here and the at home kit is available to buy from Feelunique and Michael John. The kit retails for just under £24 and I would really recommend trying it if you have thin hair and are looking for some added thickness or hoping to grow it a little.

    I've been recommended this by my hairdresser and a friend but was a bit put off by the price – but might reconsider seeing the results! My hair is blah and so flat – I feel like it could do with a bit of an oomph!

    I used to have thinning hair, and then it happen to my husband, He used to use Nioxin, but it was too drying for me, and it would strip my hair color. I fell in LOVE with the Shielo Volume shampoo cause it was great for my hair, and actually helped strengthen it. I absolutely love this stuff. It is well worth the money spent on this product.
    I use the Shielo Volume system even though my hair is not thinning anymore. My husband has been using it, and while he does not like the smell (vanilla – which i love!), I have noticed that his hair has gotten stronger.

    I have been trying to find reviews and blogs on Nioxin because I have been recommended it by a friend. I am so worried about using anything in case it makes my hair worse. I have no idea why all of a sudden my hair has gone so fine, i mean it was never thick to begin with but lately it is awful. It just falls out when i touch it.
    Did this honestly do anything for your hair? Ive heard it smells pretty bad, but if it works I’m willing to smell like a walking talking chemical.
    Any advice is welcome! Thank you.
