Nioxin

A few weeks ago I attended a Nioxin event at the Michael John salon to learn all about their line of hair care.
While thinning hair is often highlighted as a problem for men it is a condition that can affect anyone. As we have seen on many celebrities this can be a result of extensions, but in fact there are many causes to thinning hair from genetics to hormones and while Nioxin can't reverse the underlying issues the range aims to address key hair and scalp needs to keep hair healthy, while giving the appearance of thicker and fuller hair.

Nioxin has a selection of six systems, each containing a three step programme of Cleanser, Scalp Revitaliser and Scalp Treatment. I chose system 3, which is targeted for normal to thin-looking, fine, chemically treated hair.
The shampoo (cleanser) is a volumising, blue gel that left my hair feeling very clean and my scalp fresh and tingly. The conditioner (scalp revitaliser) is very lightweight to make sure hair is not weighed down and is left looking full and bouncy. As my hair is long I prefer a richer conditioner, but I did like the minty freshness it left behind and how easy it was to rinse out. The scalp treatment is a volumising spritz with antioxidants, botanicals, vitamins and purifying agents to rejuvinate the scalp. Once again it leaves the scalp feeling really fresh and clean, as well as minty cool.
The issue of thinning hair is a concern for many so I am happy to see that Nioxin have partnered with the Institute of Trichologists to run the first yearly Thinning Hair Awareness week on the 18th of February. Their aim is to raise awareness, as well as educate people accross the UK, with help from their new (and very lovely) ambassador Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
Throughout the week selected Nioxin salons will be holding their own events where clients can come and speak to experts who will be offering free consultations and advice.

To purchase your own kit (£27.99), find your nearest salon/ stockist and find out more information on Thinning Hair Awareness week you can visit the Nioxin website here.
