Both men and women may be confronted with reduced volume or hair thinning at some point in their lives. Enter: Nioxin, where beauty meets science to revolutionise your haircare routine. If you've been longing for a hair transformation, you're in for a treat. We've unravelled the secrets of Nioxin System kits, guiding you to discover the perfect match that will breathe new life into your locks and scalp.

Why Opt for a System Kit?

Navigating the vast landscape of hair thinning products can be overwhelming. Nioxin simplifies this process by introducing System Kits tailored to specific hair types and concerns. The kits are specially formulated hair thinning treatments, tailored to suit different hair needs. Each multi-part Nioxin system consists of three steps that make these system kits easy to use: cleanse, condition and treat the scalp and the hair to lay the foundation for thicker, fuller-looking locks.

Discover the System Kit for you

Step 1: Identify Your Hair Type

Begin your journey by understanding your hair type. Nioxin system kits are formulated to address two stages of hair thinning: light and progressed. Differentiating between the two is quite simple; when the thinning has progressed you can easily see it. Take a close look at your scalp and try to assess the hair density: if you have light thinning you will have more hair strands per square centimetre rather than when you have progressed thinning. Thinning also appears differently for women and men. Thinning for men will start at the crown area or they might see a receding hairline. For women, thinning will be noticeable at the parting.

Step 2: Choose the Right System

Once you’ve figured out how much thinning you have, you will have to find the right System Kit based on your hair type. Nioxin categorises its products into numbered systems, each tailored to specific hair types and concerns. Systems 1 to 6 are your roadmap to addressing different needs, from light to progressed thinning hair. Understanding the system that aligns with your hair's requirements is key to achieving optimal results. The system kits can be split into three different types based on hair type and the level of moisture it needs:

  • Natural hair, that needs low levels of moisture
  • Coloured hair that needs a moderate amount of moisture
  • Chemically treated hair, that needs intense moisture
Hair Type: Natural Hair

Natural hair is hair that has not been coloured, or its texture has not been changed through a chemical treatment such as perming, straightening or bleaching. This type of hair will have different needs than hair that’s been coloured for example. System Kit 1 and System Kit 2 are formulated with light conditioning agents that provide light moisture. Both cleansers for natural hair have Activ-Renewal technology, a blend of white tea extract, peppermint oil and cleansing agents, that helps to remove follicle-clogging sebum, fatty acids and environmental residue from the scalp and the hair.

Hair Type: Coloured Hair 

Hair feeling straw-like and limp? Just like skin, hair also needs moisture otherwise it can become dry which can lead to breakageAfter colouring, the hair becomes drier so it needs special care. System Kit 3 and System Kit 4 are created specifically to address coloured hair needs and deliver more moisture. The cleansers are formulated with Pro-Colour Shield technology that cleanses the scalp and the hair whilst providing colour protection. It contains white tea extract, humectants, peppermint oil and protective conditioning agents.

Hair Type: Chemically Treated Hair

Hair that has undergone chemical treatments to alter its texture, such as permanent straightening, perming, or bleaching, is susceptible to damage and significant dryness. If you've subjected your hair to chemical processes and are grappling with thinning issues, the ideal solution for you lies in either System Kit 5 or System Kit 6. Both kits are formulated to deliver intense moisture to very dry and damaged hair. The conditioners from these kits contain Smooth Plex technology that not only helps with moisture balance but also provides smoothing control, through the blend of silk amino acids, kukui nut oil and protective conditioning agents.

By identifying your hair type, assessing your concerns, and selecting the appropriate system, you'll unlock the secret to discovering the perfect match for your locks. Fuller, thicker, healthier hair is just a trial kit away.
