One of the things I most enjoy about being a hairstylist is always getting to try the new products!
Firstly I will start with a little inside on the brand Nioxin. When founder Eva Graham experienced thinning hair after giving birth to her first child, she began to investigate the idea of treating the scalp with skincare methods to promote hair growth. This is when Nioxin came to origin. To define Nioxin, it is the hair care product specially invented for thinning hair solution. As we do facial on face, similarly our Scalp requires attention & care and Nioxin works on scalp health providing strength and nourishment which results into hair thicker & fuller look.
This brand is:
- No1. globally selling salon brand for thicker fuller looking hair.
- Winner of the stylist Choice Award for “Favourite Thinning Hair Care” since 2002
- Most awarded brand for thinning hair in the US
- More than 25 years of dedicated research
- More than 70% of users notice thicker, fuller looking hair in just 30 days.
At The Salon@Georges Court Waterford City, we have the full range of Nioxin hair care systems to match and treat your hair issue, giving your hair growth the boost it needs. Nioxin is not just for woman it is unisex!
Strong and healthy hair begins below the surface of the scalp. Follicles can easily be clogged with sebum, hardened collagen and layers of dead skin cells. If follicles are clogged, strands cannot grow from them. The more follicles that are blocked, the fewer strands of hair that will grow. This is what makes the scalp noticeable and gives the impression of balding. Hair that does manage to grow will be weak which means hair will break easily, and they will thin out.
At the salon we offer a consultation using a Nioscope, a specialised magnifier to study the scalp, we take a very close up look at the scalp, magnified to 200%. We can show clients before and after images of their scalp so that you can see for yourself how the salon treatments are producing results. Unlike any old microscope, a Nioscope projects the view onto a monitor so clients can see their own scalp on a screen. A dermabrasion treatment is then carried out.
Dermabrasion treatment is a facial for the scalp. This is an in salon treatment and what it does is it removes dead skin cells & product build up, increases circulation and excess sebum to renew scalp skin to provide the perfect foundation for Thicker, fuller looking hair.This would be the first step and recommended to get done every 4-6 weeks than you are set to start the subscribed 3 part system which is an at home process.
Nioxin system has 6 different treatment based on the type of hair of an individual. Everyone have different kind of hair ranging from thin ,length, natural, highly dense, coloured ,straight ,curly ..oh this list could go on & on without an end. So that is why Nioxin came up with six parts based on type of hair . You will be provided with best suited category of Nioxin product ranging from 1 to 6 to suit your hair, but whatever you do, DO NOT pick your own number out as using the wrong number will be no benefit. You will need to wash your hair every day to see a quicker result.
In your 3 part system there is:
- Cleanser – This is your shampoo it removes follicle clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp skin and hair.
- Optimise – This is your conditioner it is very lightweight and helps provides moisture, balance and helps the hair by reducing hair loss due to breakage. With this conditoner you massage into the scalp.
- Treat – This is your scalp treatment it increases the diameter of each hair strand. Helps provide a refreshed scalp.Some users report redness of the scalp, which generally disappears after a week or two of continued use. If the redness persists, try using either less frequently and/or in smaller doses.
There is another product called Diaboost which is a leave in treatment used to increase the thickness of each exisiting hair strand for a fuller looking head of hair. This penetrates the hair and makes it manageable, full aswell as strengthening the hair at home. This allows it to grow longer and its as if you had up to 11,000 more hair strands. You apply this on clean damp hair directly on the root are to cover the scalp and massage in. Comb through hair and than blowdry and usual.
There is more products in the Nioxin range including more treatments and styling products. Information about these will be up in another blog post as these products are the main priority. If you look after your skin why not look after your hair!!
