Nioxin 3D Styling products

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Nioxin is a totally new-to-me brand but since it specializes in delivering thicker/ fuller looking hair, my hair already says yes to testing before I do :)

The Light Plex technology in the 3D Styling line works inside and outside of the hair: conditioning agents help retain moisture and protect the hair from environmental damage while lightweight polymers wrap around the hair without any stiffness.

This Rejuvenating elixir has been such an indulgence.

Basically, it is a lightweight leave-in treatment that applies onto damp hair to help rejuvenate the hair texture, leaving it soft and manageable when it dries. No rinsing required.

For a hair styling snob like me, this is simple enough to do. The gel-lotion like texture is easy to work into the hair, with a subdued natural scent, and the difference is noticeable.

I am not saying this elixir stops my hair from falling out completely but since it makes my hair look good and healthy while maintaining the style, I see less hair left on the brush or the sink afterward. I do believe the thinning problem requires more than just an elixir, but it is a good easy start.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltriminium Chloride, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower)  Seed Oil, Droxyethylcellulose, PVP, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Fragrance, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Polysorbate 60, etc.

The tube is 5.07oz/ 150ml, retails $15 - $20.

The Regular Hold Niospray, a finishing spray designed to help create fuller looking effects, takes care more of the styling than treating aspect for the thinning hair. Recommended for fine to medium textured hair.

I do prefer this lighter hold spray to do daily maintenance for the curls after Drybar Le Sherif gets them started after a hair wash. It is easier to brush out and the hair does not look overly done.

Ingredients: Alcohol Denat., Hydrofluorocarbon 152A, Butyl Ester of PVM/MA Copolymer, Glycerin, Aminomethyl Propanol, Fragrance, PEG 12 Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Panthenol, Menthol, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil.

The can holds 10.5oz/ 300g of product, sells around the same price point as the elixir above.

Nioxin products are available at selected hair salons and spas via the Salon Finder on I also see the brand at Shoppers but do not know the extend of the range.

  1. Sounds like products I need to check out. My hair is thinning too. I like that the scents aren't too strong. Thanks for the review.
