In over 15 years working as a beauty writer, I’ve always found it fascinating to interview those in the know – the top trichologists and experts in hair and scalp care – about the sort of hair challenges which can occur, sometimes seemingly out of the blue (as with skin concerns) and affect our self-confidence. And, more importantly, what can be done to help.
Thinning hair is one such, incredibly common challenge and can occur for a range of reasons. These can include a natural build up of sebum and dead skin cells to the interruption of hair growth cycles or structural damage to the hair due to chemical treatments. Other factors which can result in a lack of fullness are stress, a period of illness, nutritional issues and the natural loss of volume which occurs with age (along with the greys! ).
Nioxin treatments to help thinning hair look fuller
According to Nioxin - creators of the professional salon treatment and home haircare system that targets hair thinning and helps to promote thicker, fulling-looking hair – 50 % of people are affected by hair thinning.
Already a big success story in America, where it’s very popular with hair stylists, Nioxin’s 3-step approach includes specialist cleansing of the hair and scalp, conditioning and protecting the hair to help prevent breakage and, hence, further hair loss and the thickening of each strand to create a thicker, fuller look.
While they stress that it’s not a cure for hair thinning, nor do the treatments ‘re-grow’ hair, Nioxin focuses on enhancing the hair for a fuller look, as well as restoring a healthy hair and scalp condition with a cocktail of active ingredients – all chosen depending on the stage and type of thinning – including botanicals such as white tea extract and peppermint oil, and antioxidants. Kukui nut oil and silk amino acids provide intensive conditioning and strengthening, to help restore natural shine and an improved appearance of thickness.
There are three Nioxin salon services to choose from: DERMA – Scalp Renew Therapy, DENSITY – Protect Therapy or DIAMETER – Boost Therapy, and your stylist will be able to recommend which one is right for you (prices start at £15, depending on location, click here to find your nearest NIOXIN salon).
Products can then be recommended for home use, to further improve the appearance of fullness.
Excitingly, Nioxin is working with three “Confidence Coaches” to take part in a confidence-boosting, information-packed Twitter Chat on 23 October, from 12 – 1 pm, using the hashtag #NioxinTherapy.
