Nioxin is a well known brand of salon hair product for specific problems areas like thinning hair and dandruff. The Nioxin Scalp Treatment is very different from the Nioxin Scalp Therapy. The therapy is for thinning hair; while the treatment is for dry scalp that leads to dandruff.
Dandruff can be a major concern because there is no known cure. There are many dandruff products that claim to cure dandruff, but they are all just maintenance products that will require you to keep using them until they become ineffective.
That’s precisely the problem with most dandruff products like dandruff shampoo – after using them for some time, they stop being effective. This is because those store-bought solutions target the symptoms and not the causes of dandruff.
The actual cause of dandruff is an unhealthy scalp which results in those annoying flakes that never end. The Nioxin team believes that if a scalp is treated and protected properly, then the dandruff all but disappears – sort of like going into remission.
The use of botanical ingredients is what separates Nioxin from the rest of the dandruff treatments you can buy anywhere. Nioxin is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and natural active ingredients that will not harm you or your body. Any product at all can cause some irritation if you have ultra sensitive skin – even lotion or water – but short of that, Nioxin is very gentle.
You can only get Nioxin treatment or purchase the product for home use when you go to a stylist (like Anastasia) that carries it. It is not available as a retail product. The Scalp Recovery system is broken down into 3 parts: the medicating, soothing serum, and the moisturizing. A stylist experienced with Nioxin products can explain the use of these parts.
One of the problems of dandruff is the itchiness, then the flaking. If you can stop scratching your scalp, then you will experience less flaking. This is what one part of Nioxin aims to do. Nioxin medicates the scalp and moisturizes it so that it won’t itch. The moisturizer is good for the hair strands, because it will strengthen and prevent the hair from getting too dry. Unlike some treatments, Nioxin has a wonderful botanical aroma that is refreshing and soothing.
Consult your stylist, or one that carries Nioxin and understands its use, for help with a dandruff or thinning hair solution.
