Nioxin is a line of shampoos, conditioners, and treatments are some of the most reliable hair saving hair products you can buy. Pushed by salons all over the US for many years, Nioxin is a great way to make sure your hair is healthy and happy. So when I started to notice my hair thinning a little at my part, I picked up a kit right away. The kit I picked was the System 6.

Top Features of Nioxin System 6

The Nioxin System 6 had a lot going for it. First, the decades of research and development by the Nioxin brand to bring the best of hair regrowth into your home. Many people have seen their hair regrow and become healthier with the use of Nioxin products (See users top reviews here), and that was enough to get me to try it.

Another feature about the Nioxin System kits is that there are six kits designed for different hair types, whether or not the hair was colored or treated, and even hair types. It gave me confidence knowing that I was picking the right kit for my hair type, amount of hair loss, and other factors unique to me.

Third, I really liked the kit concept. The kit includes three parts: the shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment. These things all work together to make sure you get the most out of your Nioxin System.

My First Impressions

My first impressions of the product are pretty favorable. The packaging isn’t embarrassing to have in the bathroom; the words “noticeably thinning” are on the package, but aren’t in huge letters, thankfully. Nice that I wouldn’t have to hide them when guests came over.

The scent of the shampoos and conditioners are pretty strong, but they are a nice minty scent. I kind of like it, but I wouldn’t stick my nose in the bottle and take a deep breath. It would certainly clean out your sinuses. Anyway, you slowly get used to the smell of Nioxin, and I’ve really grown to love how it wakes me up in the morning.

Who is System 6 Designed for?

System 6 is designed for people with “noticeably thinning” hair. It’s designed for people with medium to coarse hair. It can be used with natural or colored, bleached, or straightened hair. Check out what real verified reviewers have to say about Nioxin 6.

How to Use System 6

Each item is supposed to be used daily. Use the shampoo like normal, then rinse. After that, apply the conditioner and leave it on your hair for about 1-3 minutes before rinsing. After you are done with your shower, while your hair is still wet, apply the scalp treatment to the whole scalp. Comb it through your hair, then leave it in to dry while styling your hair like normal. Then you’re done!

What makes System 6 Unique?

System 6 has a few cool technologies it uses to help regrow your hair and make your hair and scalp as healthy as possible.

  • Scalp Access Delivery System: This system uses vitamins, botanicals, SPF 15 sunscreen, and purifying agents. It keeps your scalp clean and happy while protecting both your scalp and your hair from sun damage.
  • Smoothplex: Using silk amino acids, kukui nut oil, and protective conditioning agents, Smoothplex helps to smooth your hair and balance your hair’s moisture. It will build healthy hair that will help to stop breakage and keep your hair growing strong.
  • Glyco-Shield: Protects chemically treated hair from further damage with the use of white tea extract, humectants, peppermint oil, and protective conditioning agents.

Pros of the Nioxin System 6

  • Nioxin actually works! After several weeks of using, I noticed my hair feeling better, looking shinier, and is coming in fuller. Everything Nioxin promised has come true!
  • The company is backed by some strong research to suggest it can help most people to regrow their hair and keep their current hairs from falling out.
  • Nioxin is sold in salons all over the place. If the men and women who deal with hair all day, every day trust it, then I do too!

Cons of the Nioxin System 6

Nioxin is pricier than regular shampoos and conditioners by a lot. However, it’s still way cheaper than any hair treatment you’ll get at the doctor’s office.

Lots of people have had allergic reactions to Nioxin products. Most people don’t, but it’s best to be safe rather than sorry. Test your new kit on a small patch of skin before full use!

Final Thoughts

I LOVE the System 6! It did everything it claimed it would do. My hair feels amazing and the thinning parts are starting to grow back. I don’t lose nearly the amount of hair I used to in my hair brush. I love everything about Nioxin System 6, and I plan to keep using it. Try it; you will love it too!
