Your path to thicker fuller looking hair starts here.
Nioxin is a brand with multiple hair products and scalp treatment that help optimize the scalp’s health, resulting in youthful, healthy-looking, and often thicker hair. Founded by Eva Graham in 1987, Graham realized a need for this brand of products after seeing her father and herself experiencing hair loss. Nioxin products are specifically designed for both men and women with fine and thinning hair. Nioxin utilizes advanced technology, including:
BioAmp: Glycol-proteins designed to add thickness and strengthen the hair from inside the cuticle. Cystine acids work to seal the cuticle and help repair damaged fine hair.
SmoothPlex: A proprietary blend of silk amino acids and kukui nut oil adds moisture, natural shine, and smooth control to medium to coarse hair.
Glyco-Color Shield: Dual-protection technology protects your scalp from damage and irritation caused by chemical services such as highlights, lowlights, permanent waves, and relaxers while preserving your hair color.
Transactive Delivery System: A time-release system formulated with vitamins, moisturizing nutrients, and botanicals.
Scalp Access: A micronutrient system that delivers moisturizing nutrients and proteins onto the scalp and hair.
FAQS: Find Answers To All Your Nioxin Questions
What is thinning hair?
NIOXIN has developed a clear definition of thinning hair based on scientific, stylistic and consumer insights: Thinning hair = a poor scalp environment + fewer hair strands + finer hair strands. This definition has informed the creation of real, science-based solutions.
Are people who color, relax, or straighten their hair more prone to thinning hair?
Chemical processes such as coloring, relaxing or straightening hair can cause structural damage to the hair shaft. This damage can increase the occurrence of hair breakage mid-shaft, reducing the number of complete strands on the head and making hair appear more thin.

How do I use the 3-part system?
The cleanser is your shampoo, so gently massage it onto your scalp and rinse.
The Scalp Revitalizer is your conditioner, which you should apply to the entire scalp and hair and leave on for 1-3 minutes before rinsing.
The scalp treatment is your leave-in, to be used on towel-dried hair and applied directly onto your scalp. Do not rinse off.
How long does it take before NIOXIN starts working?
Nine out of 10 users notice thicker, denser-looking hair in just 30 days. (Independent market research conducted among consumers concerned about thinning hair.)
Why does my scalp look red after using the scalp treatment? Is this an allergic reaction?
A decrease in blood flow to the scalp is linked to causing hair thinning. Therefore, the NIOXIN Scalp & Hair Treatment has a vasodilator in it to increase blood flow to the scalp. This redness is temporary and completely normal. It typically will dissipate within the hour.
Why are NIOXIN products sold as a three-step regimen?In the same way that optimal skin care relies on cleansing, moisturizing and treating, NIOXIN believes that that these same three components are essential for scalp and hair care that yields thicker, fuller-looking hair. Thus, NIOXIN’s 3-part systems were designed to include products that help cleanse, optimize and treat the scalp and hair via tailored technologies and custom-crafted ingredients to help men and women achieve beautifully full, thick-looking hair.
What are the lightweight conditioning ingredients in NIOXIN Systems?
Lightweight conditioning ingredients, such as fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants, have been selected for NIOXIN’s formulations in order to provide protection for thinning hair without weighing the hair down. Imagine a fine, flexible mesh on the hair surface (vs. a thick, stiff layer).
How often should the NIOXIN 3-part system be used?
NIOXIN’s 3-part systems are designed for daily use in order to achieve optimal results and the appearance of thick, full-looking hair.
