I have fine, thin curly hair that I've been coloring for years, so I picked the System 3, which is supposed to be for "thin-looking, chemically treated hair". I was initially impressed by how clean my scalp felt after the first use, and it seemed like my hair had more body. In retrospect, I realize now that it was more likely just increased frizziness from the fact that this product was frying the crap out of my already delicate hair. I noticed some hair loss as well, but according to the instructions that's a normal part of the treatment. But the worst was yet to come... After about 3 weeks of almost-daily use, I realized to my horror that sections of my hair in the front (i.e., where most of the post-shampoo scalp treatment was going) had literally broken off at the roots where my colored hair meets new, unprocessed growth. It took me a while to realize this because it seemed to happen over time rather than in one dramatic moment, but it definitely happened post-Nioxin use. So now I have a bunch of short hair on top of my head that will literally take months to grow out, plus the rest of my hair is permanently dry and frizzy-looking, no matter how many conditioning treatments I use. So, proceed with caution - this system will remove scalp buildup, but may take your hair's heath with it!

Okay, so I am 25 and I used to have super thick hair. So thick, you wouldn't be able to see my scalp. Women in my family don't go bald but their hair does thin a bit and I stared noticing it thin for me after me going through anorexia. Yes, that in itself was cause enough for my hair to fall out due to the lack of nutrients, however, after recovering from that and having my body be good as new my hair never fully recovered and I figured I may have just precipitated my hair thinning. I started using this product because my hair lady told me it lead to dramatic results. I tried it for a year. The first month I noticed more hair loss, but I stuck by it because I read it cleans out your pores in your head which impedes hair follicles from growing and it stimulated the cells already there to produce more hair. The second and third month were better in that less hair was falling out and it by the 4th and 5th months it was minimal but my hair was extremely dry. It looked like hay... NOT EXAGGERATING. Super dry and brittle and I had perpetual split ends, no matter what I did and my back hair started looking more dull brown. I started spacing out more since I was using it every other day and I switched to only twice a week. That was useless. I ended up leaving it after a year and instead started using sulfate free shampoo and taking 10,000 mg of biotin a day. 5,000 in the morning and 5,000 at night. My hair looks 1000000x times better and it is thicker and regained its natural black color. Ends are not split and my hair is not dry. This shampoo does not help hair loss and its too damaging to the hair you're trying to save. Spare yourself the trouble and go get your biotin and sulfate free shampoo and watch your hair bloom! TRUST ME!

I`ve been alternating between Morrocanoil and Kerastase for a couple of years now, but recently Morrocanoil stuff has become hard to come by in Japan, so for the last 2 years or so it`s been only Kerastase. For my hair, alternating products is a good thing, because it can get sensitized and the good results tend to disappear after a while. So I decided to give my hair (and wallet) a rest, and went for this 20 bucks mask from Nioxin. I wasn`t expecting miracles or anything, but I am pleasantly surprised. This mask works just as well as Kerastase, it`s about 10-15 bucks cheaper, and more conveniently packaged (squeeze tube) for travel. I am already on my second tube and I would consider repurchasing to alternate with Kerastase in the future. The smell is all right, nothing special, but not over the top or lingering either. It may seem like a small tube, but even for my long hair I don`t need too much product to evenly coat everything. I plan to experience with some stuff from Alterna next, but I have two tubes of Nioxin as a back up in my bathroom closet.

Holy grail product!!! I have fine hair (albeit a ton of it), and almost every product weighs it down. THIS ONE DOES NOT! I've used it not for a few years, and will always have it in stock, as long as Nioxin keeps making it. Not only does this product make my hair feel thicker, but it also adds texture, which helps in all styling. Pricing is very fair for the product, and no complaints about the packaging!

I don't notice the scent that much to be honest, I've definitely used stronger scented hairsprays. I picked this up because I have thinning, breaking hair and I do find that this helps a lot with breakage etc compared to other hairsprays. This does not have a ton of hold and it brushes out easily leaves my hair soft. I would repurchase, it's not perfect but it's one of the better hairsprays I have used for my hair type. Oh my bottle says Nioxin Niospray Regular Hold Hairspray with Lightplex. So it may not be exactly what other people are reviewing but this is the one I like
