Does Nioxin Shampoo really work for thinning hair?
This home remedy is, unfortunately, not the catch-all, balding cure everyone is looking for. The treatment comes in one of many varieties, some far more exclusively available than the rest. The pricing isn’t cheap, but it’s also certainly not the most expensive thing you could try. The three-part system includes a shampoo, conditioner, and what they refer to as a special scalp treatment. The salon-level shampoo works more to create a healthy environment for hair growth than anything else, promoting healthy hair, but only where hair already exists. On their own website, they even say that “NIOXIN’s advanced technologies provide real solutions for making the most of the hair you have.”
Nowhere does the company advertise that the treatment would be effective for those who suffer from genetic hair loss, resulting in large bald spots of any kind. Nioxin may work for you while you still have quite a bit of hair, but it will not help to bring it back. Reviews from users are overwhelmingly positive, but many users simply don’t have alopecia that leads to hair loss. Moreover, for people treating their hair loss with supplements like Rogaine (or any treatment that includes minoxidil), the company that produces Nioxin strongly discourages that you use their treatment. Another downside of the treatment is it can take up to a month before users experience the intended effects, so you could be waiting for weeks before you’re able to make a decision about how well the product works.
If you’re facing a particularly aggressive form of hair loss, such as male pattern baldness or alopecia areata, then treatments such as Nioxin shampoo are not going to work. You’re better off trying a more permanent solution like scalp micropigmentation, which is a hyper-realistic pattern created on the head, with an appearance that mimics the density and color of hair follicles.
