The Good

  • Nioxin can be purchased from most online websites.
  • Nioxin takes care of the fine and thinning hair problem which shows people older than their real age.

The Bad

  • Though thinning hair enhances the aged look of a person, Nioxin is essentially a hair product and does not work on wrinkles.
  • No way to buy the products from the official Nioxin website.
  • Customer testimonials and before and after photographs are missing. So, there is no way of knowing the true effectiveness of the product.
  • Nioxin website is not a very user friendly website.

The Bottom Line

The Nioxin products can be purchased from professional hair salons in 39 countries and across the US. Most customers would want to give these products a try since thinning hair and premature hair loss is now a widespread problem. The market is full of brands which promise to cure the problem of thinning hair. However, the most popular brands boost of Minoxidil which is a FDA approved ingredient and has been clinically tested. This ingredient is known to enhance hair growth. But, most importantly, Nioxin does not have the ability to treat wrinkles, which are often more of a reason people begin to look older.
