The relatively unknown shampoo Nioxin is now highly recommended for those experiencing thinning hair and receding hair lines. It has worked great for me for many years now. But I must admit my long-time and consistent use of Rogaine may also have helped. My best guess is that the combined used of both is the best policy. It is also widely recommended to combine your hair protection and hygiene plan with Finasteride, the miracle drug also known as Propecia, to halt the effects of testosterone cutting off circulation at the base of the hair follicle.
For me, one of the most readily noticeable things about Nioxin Shampoo is that you can feel that it works after only the first use. Your hair feels thicker, software, and stronger, and that is a great feeling. But is it just a thickening shampoo or does it also help prevent hair loss? Let’s take a closer look. My girlfriend recommended it after looking into it with her beauty-expert friends so I had to take it to the next level.
My research has revealed that Nioxin is a synergistic combination of scalp nutrients that treat thinning hair and protect your scalp from the conditions that cause it. Technically speaking, Nioxin’s main benefit is that it provides for a healthier scalp which in turn allows for the protection and maintenance of the hair you already have. By creating a healthy and comfortable environment for hair to be strong and grow, it stops hair loss and allows for regrowth of hair lost because of stress and other superficial factors like sleep loss and malnutrition. It allows you to regrow what would naturally be there if you didn’t continue to deprive your scalp of the nutrients and sleep and other crucial requirements of a healthy hair growth environment.
Nioxin also contains both melanin and an advanced sunscreen which protects your scalp from the more harmful parts of sunlight. This combined sunscreen factor protects your scalp from sunburn and therefore keeps your scalp in condition to produce full and healthy hair. This explains the calming effect you will experience after your first use of Nioxin. After you enjoy the sensation of that first calming shampoo, you will immediately wonder where Nioxin has been all your life.
My dermatologist, who also specializes in microscopic hair transplants told me that by stopping hair loss, that Nioxin Shampoo foments hair growth by calming down the overall scalp and therefore slowing the production of the testosterone which kills hair follicles at their base. So Nioxin users enjoy a chain reaction of effects of the combination of not only sun protection, but also vitamins and nutrients that allow your hair follicles to be nourished while they are not being ravaged by the combination of the stress of the sun from outside of your scalp, and the testosterone generated from within. All these ingredients combined make for a well-rounded protection system allowing for healthy and safe regrowth of all your hair that can come back and stay with you, and protect you from the environment.
