There are six Nioxin systems, and they are all designed for individuals with different hair conditions and needs. Once you know their individual recommendations, you can then identify which one is perfect for your hair. For example, you can’t use Nioxin system 1 if your hair has undergone treatment in the past. Also, if you have a full hair of hair with only mild thinning, system 4 isn’t for you. 

Let’s review each of the six Nioxin systems and see which hair conditions they are perfect for.

 

Nioxin System 1

System 1 is perfect for you if you have a full and virgin (previously untreated and uncolored) hair with only mild thinning. If you’ve only started noticing thinning in your hair and want to prevent any further progression, system 1 is for you. 

Some of the benefits of system 1 include:

  • It maintains your hair volume and refreshes your scalp.
  • It thickens your hair and increases the fullness of each strand. 
  • It protects your hair strands from breakage
  • It removes abnormal substances like fatty acids, environmental residues, and even follicle-clogging sebum from your hair. 

 

Nioxin System 2

System 2 is a follow up to system 1. It’s for people who have virgin hair with progressive thinning. When you notice that your hair is no longer as full as it used to be, system 2 is the right treatment for you. Like with system 1, it’s for hair that’s uncolored and untreated. 

Some of the benefits of system 2 include:

  • It is perfect for people which untreated and progressively thinning hair
  • It gives your hair more density and fullness 
  • provides balances your hair’s moisture and improves its resilience
  • It refreshes your scalp

 

Nioxin System 3

System 3 was designed to improve the hair quality of people with lightly thinning hair. One difference between it and systems 1 and 2 is that you can apply system 3 on colored or treated hair. 

Some of the benefits of system 3 include:

  • It is perfect for colored or treated hair with light thinning.
  • It improves the thickness and fullness of your progressively thinning hair strands
  • It improves the strength of hair and prevents breakage
  • It refreshes the scalp

 

Nioxin System 4

System 4 is for people with damaged and colored progressively thinning hair. It’s the go-to treatment for you if your hair is thinning out, but you can’t use systems 1 and 2 because of your prior chemical treatments. 

Some of the benefits of Nioxin system 4 include:

  • It is perfect for damaged and colored hair with progressive thinning
  • It removes fatty acids and residue from your hair
  • It refreshes your scalp
  • It increases hair fullness while preventing breakage.

 

Nioxin System 5

System 5 is perfect for medium to thick virgin hair that has light thinning and needs moisturization. Unlike the previous systems, system 5 was designed for people who have coarse hair and need to do something about it. 

Some of the benefits of Nioxin system 5 include:

  • It is perfect for virgin hair with medium thinning in need of moisturization
  • It protects hair strands from breakage
  • It removes substances like fatty acids and environmental particles from your hair.
  • It refreshes your scalp

 

Nioxin System 6

The difference between systems 6 and 5 is that system 6 is suitable for people with chemically treated hair while system 5 is for virgin hair. Besides that, they are the same. If your hair has medium to thick fullness with a coarse texture, system 6 is perfect for you. It moisturizes your hair and improves its thickness.

Some of the benefits of system 6 include:

  • It removes abnormal substances like fatty acids and even follicle-clogging sebum from your hair. 
  • It refreshes your scalp
  • It provides moisture balance for your hair
  • It improves your hair thickness and prevents breakage.

 

What if my hair doesn’t meet all the requirements?

If you have full hair that’s been treated, you may be tempted to reach for the system 1 bottle. But, you’re better off with system 3. The fact that your hair has been coloured or treated means that systems 1 and 2 aren’t right for you. But don’t worry because system 3 will still work for you if your hair only has mild thinning.
