Hair Treatments: Nioxin Benefits And Uses

Nioxin offers hair loss sufferers a treatment system designed to help regrow healthy hair and prevent hair loss.

The hair treatment product Nioxin offers an approach to thinning hair and other hair loss conditions such as male/female pattern baldness (alopecia).It is also used as a treatment for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema. Nioxin has been shown to arrest the symptoms of various skin conditions by normalizing the skin. Used prior to chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Nioxin will strengthen the hair and remove toxins to prevent and protect the hair from damage on a cellular level. Nioxin creates an optimum scalp environment for the regrowth of hair. Nioxin provides an entire system of hair care products, and is available in two systems: Bionutrient Protectives designed for fine/thin hair that has been chemically treated and Bionutrient Actives to address the needs of those with non-chemically treated hair.

Nioxin works both topically and sub topically. It contains essential oils, vitamins and nutrients that are essential for healthy new hair growth. Nioxin works on the scalp by cleansing away, detoxifying and dissolving build up on the scalp and hair follicle. By doing this, it opens up the path for nutrients to enter and feed the roots for healthy hair. It restores the moisture balance to the scalp, increases cellular energy, and restores elasticity to the hair. Use of Nioxin will not strip hair of its own essential oils.
