Our scalp is an extension of our facial skin

We often treat our facial skin with products to prevent the effects of aging. In much the same way, the scalp must be treated properly to maintain a healthy scalp environment and keep hair healthy-looking and strong. And like facial skin, the scalp is susceptible to everything we come into contact with every day — things of which most of us may not be aware. Toxins, air pollutants, chlorine, sunlight, minerals and water pollution can affect the scalp skin and contribute to the problem of thinning hair. For example, excessive exposure to sunlight allows harmful UV rays to penetrate the skin including our scalp. This causes skin cells to age, which thickens the scalp skin contributing to follicle instability. Most shampoos, conditioners and styling products are formulated to clean, condition and support styling of the hair fiber/strand. Unfortunately, many of these products have damaging alcohols and PVP film formers that coat the hair and create buildup on the scalp. In some cases, buildup can clog the follicle and may further aggravate the overall problems associated with thin-looking hair.

                             Nioxin Has 5 Different effects on the hair

1. Nioxin reduces hair breakage by smoothing and protecting the cuticle. Our BioAMP™ formula utilizes glyco-proteins to strengthen the cuticle from the inside, while cystine amino acids then seal the cuticle shut.

2. Nioxin is designed to deliver denser looking hair, so it appears thick, strong and healthy. The Scalp Access™ Delivery System with vitamins and purifying agents, cleanses the scalp, removing follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues.

3. Nioxin augments the texture of hair, smoothing the cuticle and ensuring it is healthy, vibrant and looks radiantly thick. SmoothPlex™, a blend of silk amino acids and kukui nut oil, smoothens the hairs, ensuring their strength against damage remains.

4. Nioxin’s blend of ingredients strengthens individual hairs against cuticle damage, arming them against the damage done through styling or exposure to harsh environments. Glyco-Color Shield™ delivers a dual shield technology that helps to revitalize and protect damaged hair.

5. Nioxin thoroughly cleanses the scalp, removing excess sebum and helping the hair maintain its natural vitality. This is achieved via our Transactive Delivery System™ its antioxidants, botanicals, and purifying agents help strip away sebum and residue from the scalp skin, leaving it clean and refreshed.
