We go to great lengths when it comes to taking good care of our skin :massage: but we often tend to ignore the scalp. Facial for the face is done to improve blood circulation, remove dead cells and to flush out toxins. And the same can be done for the scalp to promote hair growth and to clean out the scalp. :haircut: All of us ladies dreams about having thick, luscious looking locks but we should have a good regime to help achieve the results. We buy different shampoos and conditioners off the shelves but never do we find anything that actually makes us feel that it is doing it’s job. We even try different regimes but for most of us, nothing works out.
Often we look for international brands to help us out with this but they are too expensive or they don’t ship to India (which means we have to find someone to buy and bring it when they come). And if it works repurchasing the same would be a pain.
To my delight, Nioxin, a US based hair thickening brand, was launched in Chennai and the event took place in Bounce Style Lounge at Ispahani Center, Nungambakkam.
How Nioxin was founded?
In 1987, Ms.Eva Graham the founder & CEO of Nioxin, experienced severe hair fall post pregnancy and when nothing else helped to control the hair thinning, she decided to create her own line of hair care products with lots of research and testing Nioxin came into existence.
What is Nioxin?
Nioxin is a complete line of hair products and scalp treatments that help optimize the health of the scalp resulting in youthful, healthy-looking, and often thicker hair. Nioxin utilizes advanced technology (developed over more than 20 years), including:
BioAmp: glycol-proteins that are designed to add thickness and strengthen the hair from inside the cuticle. Cystine acids work to seal the cuticle and help repair damaged fine hair.
SmoothPlex: a proprietary blend of silk amino acids and kukui nut oil that adds moisture, natural shine and smooth control to medium to coarse hair.
Glyco-Color Shield: dual protection technology protects your scalp from damage and irritation caused by chemical services such as highlights, lowlights, permanent waves, and relaxers, while preserving your hair color.
Transactive Delivery System: time-release system that is formulated with vitamins, moisturizing nutrients and botanicals.
Scalp Access: a micronutrient system that delivers moisturizing nutrients and proteins onto the scalp and hair.

The launch event & my first experience with Nioxin-
For the launch event, beauty bloggers from Chennai were invited to the venue by Blogadda team. Daisy, who had extensive knowledge about the Nioxin products, explained it to us how they work and why they were made.
To start off I have chemically treated my hair and for the past two years I have been experiencing severe hair fall and oily scalp that no product or medication seem to be able to control. After the presentation they began to examine each of our scalp and recommended which system would work best for us(System 4 for me). Once the consultation was over we were readied to get the scalp facial(so fancy :D) done by the experts. First, Scalp Renew an in-salon product is applied on the scalp and let for 10 minutes it sloughs off the dead cells, excess sebum and unclogs the pores to reveal fresh and healthy scalp. Secondly, System 1 Cleanser is applied from the scalp to the ends and is massaged to lather up the product then it is washed off. Third, the System 1 Conditioner is applied focussing mainly on the scalp and a Deep Repair Masque(another in-salon product) is applied to the rest of the hair. After a minute or two the conditioner, masque is washed off and my scalp felt cold(because all the products contain peppermint oil & menthol), squeaky clean as if it was accumulating gunk all this time. Finally, Scalp Treatment is applied to the clean scalp it is a leave-in treatment to protect it from the harmful UV rays and also it helps promote the scalp cell regeneration. After the lengthy pampering session my scalp felt super fresh and the excess oils were gone. happydance
