Nioxin. The new buzz word that's floating around The Salon.
What is it? What does it do? How does it work?
First I will give you a little background about Nioxin.
Nioxin was developed by a woman named Eva Graham. She made it her life's mission to help men and women keep their hair. From her own experiences; her fathers hair loss and then losing nearly half her own hair after child-birth, she decided to cultivate a new approach to healthy hair - starting with the scalp.
She discovered after meeting with numerous dermatologists and attending medical lectures, that the scalp is simply an extension of the face and needs to breathe.
And so she set to work.....
From 1987 to now, Nioxin has become a global best seller for 'fuller, thicker hair' and has won the Stylist Choice Awards for 'favourite thinning hair line' 16 years in a row, WOW!!! Since then, they have gone from strength to strength by improving and adding a range of new products to their 3 step system.
There are 6 main reasons why you might experience thinning hair:
1. Genetic Factors
2. Stress and Trauma
3. Health Reasons
4. Environmental Factors
5. Medication Issues
6. Nutrition and diet
Many available solutions only serve to camouflage thinning. The Nioxin approach (scalp skincare) is different. Customised technologies deliver thicker, fuller looking hair without side effects. By identifying the 3 signs of hair thinning; Derma, Density and Diameter, Nioxin delivers a complete program and unique personalised solutions for a tailored treatment that works.
Products & Treatments
Nioxin 3 Part System; These range from numbers 1-6 and two sizes, small and large. The numbering system is in place so we can choose the right system for your scalp and hair needs. (If you would like to book in with me for a free consultation I would be happy to discus this with you further.) The pack contains a Cleanser Shampoo, Scalp Therapy Revitalising Conditioner, and Scalp & Hair Treatment.
In-Salon Treatments include:
Demabrasion Treatment; Is an anti-ageing treatment to help regenerate and revitalize the scalp skin through exfoliation - acting like a facial for the scalp.
This treatment is great for dry scalp, as it cleans all around the hair follicles. It takes about 10-15 minutes costing €20 (Not recommended the same week as your colour service).
Color Lock; Color Lock seals the hair cuticle and locks colour pigments into the hair immediately after the hair-colouring service. This treatment is used on the day of your hair being coloured in salon, it will stop your colour from fading and prevent breakage. 5 minute service costing €10
Deep Protect Density Mask; This mask leaves hair deeply conditioned and provides maximum protection and strengthens the hair shaft against damage. This is a 5 minute treatment, costing €10 (This product can also be purchased to use at home).
Diaboost; Diaboost increases the thickness of each existing hair strand for fuller looking hair. Hair is noticeably thicker after just one use. After your hair is washed, Diaboost is applied directly onto the scalp and styled as normal. This service is €5 ( This product can also be purchased for at home use).
Take home product:
Hair Booster; Hair Booster is particularly designed for progressed-thinning hair and works on specific areas of concern, such as receding hairline or low-density crown. It conditions hair and forms a protective barrier against cuticle damage. Apply twice daily on affected areas. (this is a home use only product and it causes temporary redness, this is not a reaction to the product - so don't panic).
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Again I have only touched the surface on the amount of information I could give you.
I feel Nioxin is such an important product to have in our salon, after all our scalp in an extension of our face and we need to look after it as well as we look after our skin.
Who doesn't want fuller or thicker hair? lol
