One look at my hairbrush and it’s apparent that my hair is breaking. As I get older, the amount of hair in my brush continues to multiply, but I’m not alone. About one third of women experience hair loss at some time in their lives. And among peri- and post- menopausal women, as many as two-thirds suffer from hair thinning or bald spots. At 45, I can’t afford to leave behind any more hair on my hairbrush or styling tools. That’s why I appreciate the fast-acting Nioxin Diamax Advanced Xtrafusion Treatment ($55), a daily serum that helps me avoid further breakage and gives my hair an immediate boost.
It’s nonirritating, easy to incorporate into my hair-care routine and simple to use. I love the smell and my hair feels instantly thicker, fuller and more manageable without leaving it feeling sticky or heavy. I love that you don’t have to use it for weeks to see results, although consistent use is recommended. Because it’s designed to increase the diameter of hair, it works great for on-the-spot volume after just one use.
It contains caffeine, niacinamide and active ingredients that instantly thickens thinning and fine hair at the root and reduces breakage.
How to Use It:
Apply on wet or dry hair and comb through. Start by massaging six pumps onto the scalp and running the remaining serum through your strands from roots to ends. Do not rinse off and style your hair as desired.
The Bottom Line:
Use alone as a post-shower, pre-styling treatment or as part of Nioxin’s three-part hair growth system kit for best results. I’ve replaced my hair oil and styling creams with this one thickening product and have noticed a difference in the thickness of my strands and how my style holds. It’s any easy way to improve my hair texture and quality without having to remember to take a daily supplement.
