Key Ingredients 

You’ll find no parabens or colorants in these pH balanced formulas. Let's take a look at the good stuff you’ll discover in the Scalp Relief formulas: 

Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory properties (to help soothe irritation) and is rich in vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A, C, and E, which help cell turnover to promote healthy hair growth. 


Nioxin-exclusive Soothex™ is an important ingredient in Scalp Relief products. It helps to relieve sensitive skin while reducing stinging and irritation. Soothex™ features a unique formulation that relieves redness, itching, and inflammation. 


Glycerin is a beneficial ingredient that is great for all hair types. It helps keep the scalp deeply hydrated and protected from dryness and irritation. It also helps condition and strengthen your hair to prevent breakage and split ends. 


Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that’s beneficial for all hair types. It helps build keratin (a protein in your hair) and increases the diameter of each strand to add thickness. It also helps protect the natural skin barrier that helps retain moisture.
