Applying Nutri Ox is a bit different; it is applied by shampooing then by a few sprays after you’ve showered. It’s not really inconvenient as you’re going to be showering and washing your hair anyways.
Many people have reported that after using the shampoo and conditioner, they scalp look a bit red and feel a cooling sensation and believe that it’s the signs that the products are working. After more than a week, they noticed that their hair is fuller and bald spots are decreasing significantly. In that regard, Nutri Ox works as advertised and leaves no room for complaints.
Nutri Ox works by cleansing the scalp and hair thoroughly, complete with the gel treatment. You must apply the gel treatment directly to your hair, massage it and distribute it evenly across your scalp, in order to make the hair look thicker and fuller.
But there is a downside that are also being reported by the same people. Once they use the products, they can’t stop. They must use it forever or their hair will start falling out again and even worse than before. Many people have confirmed that Nutri Ox is the kind of products that you have to use forever, you can’t stop using and you can’t switch to other products either.
But there is no denying that the products work as advertised. Some people have said that the downside of the product outweighs the benefits of using it. But of course, the final decision is on you, if you’re used to using the same product for years, you might be able to keep using Nutri Ox the same way.
Overall, Nutri Ox is a good product with a reasonable price. Using the product is simple and straightforward with an extra step to the procedure. The effect can be observed in a short amount of time. But it requires dedication from the user, you can’t stop using it or your hair will fall out again.
Nioxin is a scalp treatment and hair care system released in the 80s. Nioxin is probably one of the most famous hair loss treatment products since it’s been around for decades. Nioxin shampoo alone is priced at $41 and if you want the full bundle complete with 3D styling thickening spray and 3D styling bodifying form, you’ll have to spend $70. Nioxin is on the expensive side, and a lot of people have been debating whether the price is worth it or not.
Nioxin works by cleansing the scalp from dirt and debris that normally block hair follicles. It removes the clogs which contain a hormone called DHY. By acting as a DHT blocker, Nioxin can promote hair growth.
Nioxin is a bit different from other brands, they never claim to promote hair growth, instead they claim to improve scalp’s health and improving the hair condition that’s already present. It does that by controlling the moisture and removing sebum. The effect is scalp becomes neither too dry nor too oily. Furthermore, Nioxin treats each follicle gently by balancing the moisture. This protects hair strands against the damages of environmental stresses and reduces breakage.
People have reported their hair to become less and less tangled. Using the shampoo makes their scalp feel tingly at first and then in just a couple of weeks, they had a full head for the first time. They no longer have thin hair and their hair becomes more nourished and moisturized. Using Nioxin requires commitment too, you’ll have to apply most products daily and sometimes twice a day. Sometimes in the morning, or before bed. You need the commitment to keep a schedule and apply the products properly and regularly.
Overall, to get the full effect you might need to buy the 3D kit instead of just the shampoo alone. It can get really expensive overtime. The good news these products can last for a long time, so you don’t have to buy them frequently. And similar to Nutri Ox, once you use Nioxin you can’t stop, otherwise the effects might disappear completely. Not only that, you’ll have to keep up with the new products they release, since they change their products’ name often. It can be confusing at first but you’ll get used to it.
