Nioxin Haircare 1 - A Review

Almost a month back I wrote a post on the bloggers meet we had here organized by Nioxin Hair Care brand. So, now after using it for a month, here comes my review of it. As you might have read already, Nioxin took a scalp test and determined that the variation I should use is 1 of the 6.
First things first. First product I got to use was the Nioxin Scalp Renew which was an in-salon product. As I wrote about it in the previous post itself, I'm skipping it here.
The take home were the Shampoo, Conditioner & Leave-in treatment. The Shampoo comes in a white plastic with black flip cap. The sides are serrated for easier grip. Its a translucent blue liquid. The conditioner is a white liquid, with a slightly thicker consistency than the shampoo. The leave-in treatment is a completely clear colorless liquid. 
The menthol effect stays throughout. The shampoo pretty well, not too much, not too little, just well! The after effect of this shampoo is squeaky clean. When we were little kids, after brushing the teeth, sometimes we try to brush again with finger and it gives a squeaky clean sound, remember??!!!! THAT effect!!!! The scalp feels too clean and that was kinda scary to begin with. Scalp has never felt that refreshed before!!! Its perfect for oily scalp, but if your scalp is dry, it might strip off any oil left at all! This much of 'too clean' feel has to be backed up by conditioner! The conditioner is super chilling and I loved how soft and silky it made my hair. After leaving the conditioner for a few minutes and when water falls on it, the scalp gets sooo chilled!!! I ceremoniously made sure of using the leave-in too. The leave-in comes in a spray packaging and can be sprayed directly onto the scalp which is very good coz you don't waste even a bit on your palms!!! 
The shampoo & conditioner are 150ml each and the leave-in is 50ml. Together they cost Rs.2390 and has a 3 yrs shelf life. 
I love the way the treatment has made my hair feel. But does it actually work on the thinning problem? I doubt. I haven't seen any visible thickening of hair or increased number of strands on scalp. May be if I go in for another check up with the scalp camera, I might be able to see the results in a better way. And at this price point, I think its a bit too pricey, if it doesn't actually thicken my hair or increase density of the strands!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.
