I became very sick in 2014. Long story short, I was put under using general anesthesia 7 times in a 9 month period and my hair was falling out and it looked and felt like straw. I was on a regimen of vitamin supplements and special diet and it helped a little. It was not until Nioxin was recommended by my hairdresser that I finally found the right mix to bring my hair back to its natural balance. I’ve now continued using Nioxin every other month for just over two years now and my hair is back to being healthier than what it was before I became ill. It truly does work along with the proper diet and vitamin supplements.
