“Did you do something to your hair?”
“Why yes! How did you know?”
“I noticed that there are hardly any strands of hair on the floor now!”
A tear escaped my eye- a tear of joy- as these words emerged from the soul I know will not lie: My household help/ maid! (What did you think?) 😉 At last, it seemed that my dream would be a reality: the dream of a full head of hair!
It’s been a month since I attended the product launch of the Nioxin hair care solution at the Bodycraft Spa in Bangalore. You’ll recall that I spoke about the salon experience, the pampering, the consultation with the Nioxin specialists, the 3-pronged approach of Nioxin towards thinning hair and the fact that we had to try the product on ourselves at home for at least a fortnight or more.
Well, a month’s up and it’s time to reveal the results! But first, a quick recap of what we were supposed to do at home with the three-pronged approach suggested by Nioxin.
Given the condition of my hair (normal, naturally thinning hair) I was recommended to use the Type 5 treatment on myself.
Much like any shampoo, this must be applied onto the scalp, massaged until it lathers and left on for a few minutes. Afterwards, wash off as you would regularly.
This acts like a conditioner for your scalp. Unlike other conditioners, this should be massaged not just into the head, but also right down to the tips of the hair and left to soak in for about 3 to 5 minutes, before rinsing as usual.
Leave-in Scalp Treatment
This is the one thing that’s different from the regular shampoo-conditioner routine. It’s a leave-in solution that must be sprayed onto portions of the scalp after towel drying the hair. Once sprayed, massage gently with your fingertips throughout the scalp and right down to the ends of the hair.
What I did:
When it comes to challenges, I am very diligent, so I decided to see this through and find out how it would work for me. Every alternate day, after the salon treatment on the 23rd of May, I dutifully followed the 3-step process as mentioned on the package and as advised by the Nioxin experts.
- Before every wash, I massaged my hair with oil and left it in for an hour before the Nioxin treatment.
- After towel drying and applying the leave-in scalp treatment, I waited half an hour at least before blow-drying my hair.
- I brushed my hair with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles and to check for hair fall.
What I saw:
I rarely gush in my reviews, given that I am rather skeptical when it comes to products that are new. Having said that, here’s what I found:
- Hair strands on my comb post brushing were very few in number.
- Stray hair (a few strands) on the floor as opposed to clumps of hair before the treatment.
- Thickness of my hair increased, as evidenced by the hair clip that I used regularly.
- The coarseness that I generally find post a shampoo wash had given way to a softness that was lovely!
So, if you recall, this was how I looked a month ago, at the spa, after my salon treatment.
And here I am, as captured today. These were taken at home. Picture 1 captures the length and volume of the hair. Picture 2 captures me, just posing, I suppose 😉
If it’s not clear from the pictures, take my word for it. It works! I am really happy with the texture and increased thickness of my hair now.
So if you are experiencing hair thinning problems, I suggest that you get a consultation from a Nioxin specialist right away!
