So, lately I have noticed more hair than usual falling out when I wash/comb my hair. This has sent me into full on panic mode. I noticed my ponytail was a tad thinner than usual. My hair stylist doesn't think it's bad, but hey I notice it. I had my thyroid levels checked since it's always been a little wacky. I don't want to have thin hair so I looked around and found Nioxin. I am not sure if it will work for me and I have seen mixed reviews. Some think it's awesome, others don't like the tingling sensation it leaves on the scalp and some can experience scalp redness.
I know my thyroid is messed up so when I noticed my hair just seemed to be falling out more than usual I didn't waste time. I started taking a multivitamin because I have been anemic a few times. Vitamin deficiency can cause hair loss. I like a full head of thick hair (on myself) so the Nioxin was a great product for me to try. I got it at my salon and no it's not cheap by any means. I'm still using my Redken products too. I love them.
I thought that others might appreciate my own experience one day while googling. I hope that it does help.
Day 1. I love the tingly feeling on my scalp! My hair DOES seem thicker instantly when I blow dry. I loved the soft feeling. I however do not like the smell. It's a little to medicinal for me. If it works I'm okay with it though.
As you can see, my hair isn't thin, but I noticed it's THINNER. There is a difference. I did just go a lighter blond too. I think I may like it more with the darker streaks but I don't know. It's hard to decide. We'll see. I like to change things up all the time. :D
