Nioxin/Rogaine: Does it Really Work?

This post has been a long time in the making. In fact, over 90 days in the making. Here's how it went...

My boss, and one of the On Stage owners, was losing some of his hair...just a teeny bit, but we wanted to do something about it. So we came up with this experiment. Combine the use of Nioxin and Rogaine for 90 days. See what happens.

Products used: We put Marty on the whole Nioxin system. Shampoo, conditioner, and the treatment. He used all of it once a day. He bought the 5% Rogaine and used it twice a day.

Well...here are the results of said experiment.

**just a small disclaimer. Neither one of these companies suggests that you use their product in conjunction with other products.


Day 1




Day 30









We started to get excited at this point. You can clearly see that there is new hair growth. But we didn't want to get our hopes up just yet.

Day 60








By this point we were pretty much hopping up and down chanting, "It's working!" Okay...I was hopping up and down chanting. Everyone else was laughing. 

Day 90







I was pretty impressed that it worked so well. So impressed that I got my brother on the same "experiment" and it is working well for him too. Maybe it's not longer an experiment and just fact. Who knows. 

Just in case you need to see it again...









If you decided to try this experiment, send me your before and after photos to Cassidy@onstagehairdesign.com and maybe I'll post them to the blog!

  1. Do you think this would work on someone say in their 50's who has had hair loss since the 80's? I think I should try this experiment on this person. Please, if you can, tell me the name of the products and how much to use.
    Thanks

  3. Rogaine definitely grows hair and makes thicker hair strands. I thought for a while my hair strands were thicker. And giving the appearance of growth.
    But stop using it and the new hair grown will fall out.
    Just as they say and as I experienced twice.
    Since it is a bit of an expense over time. I wanted to know since I have some Nioxin, when out of rogaine if I could supplement with Nioxin.
    Much thanks for this information.

    1. Tamra, as this experiment was using both of the products together, I'm not sure if it they will work in place of the other. If you do try it, please let us know what kind of results you have.

  5. Was the Nioxin Scalp treatment used before or after the Rogaine?

    1. The products were used exactly as the directions on the box say. Typically, it was Nioxin treatment in the morning (as it as SPF in it) and then the Rogaine treatment at night.

    2. I've used Rogaine for 2 months & seen some hair inprovement, wishing to build on this I also recently purchased Nioxin System 6 literally 2 days ago. Being greatly interested in your experience of these 2 products, I notice that you initially said:

      "Products used: We put Marty on the whole Nioxin system. Shampoo, conditioner, and the treatment. He used all of it once a day. He bought the 5% Rogaine and used it twice a day".

      However in your reply above there now appears to be some confusion:
      "The products were used exactly as the directions on the box say. Typically, it was Nioxin treatment in the morning (as it as SPF in it) and then the Rogaine treatment at night".

      Can you please clarify the exact treatment sequence you followed and indicate approx how long between applications of each system?
      Many Thanks.

    3. Sorry for the confusion. It should have read: "The products were used exactly as the directions on the box say. Typically, it was Nioxin treatment in the morning (as it as SPF in it) and then the Rogaine treatment AGAIN at night".

      The Rogaine was used both morning and night. Please let us know how this works for you!

    4. This is still confusing. You are contradicting yourself every time. It seems to me that the Nioxin Scalp Treatment was used once a day, in the morning, and the Rogaine was used twice a day, morning and night. THE QUESTION IS: In the morning, did he apply Nioxin Scalp Treatment followed by Rogaine, or Rogaine followed by Nioxin Scalp Treament. This is a very important question to those interested. Please clarify.

    5. Did you use Nioxin before the Rogaine in the morning, or after?

    6. Well shit. The most important factor was never answered. Nioxin the 3rd step says nothing about not being used on damp hair. Rogaine says HELL no to damp hair. I'd say use rogaine first, let it dry for 30 min, then do the Nioxin, though the scalp treatment could very possibly wipe out Rogaine...pretty hard to know for sure, as holy heck does the Nioxin shampoo dry out your scalp\hair.

  6. OK, I'll go with:
    Morning regime:
    Wash & condition only (Parts 1 & 2 of the Nioxin System).
    Dry Hair thoughly
    Apply Rogaine & Allow some time for absobtion?
    Apply Scalp treatment (Part 3 of the Nioxin system that contains the SPF to protect the scalp from effect of sun)

    Evening:
    Apply Rogaine

    In other words to maximise the potential of both systems, apply Rogaine having cleansed the scalp, but don't apply it on top of Nioxin System part 3 that contains SPF that I suspect may inhibit the Rogaine.

    Hope I've got it right?
    Best Regards

  9. So is the consensus using the nioxin part 3 before or after the Rogaine? I have been using nioxin, haven't lost much hair since using, but hoping the Rogaine will grow some back

  10. Just embrace what the lord has given you and do not worry about what others think, because no one really cares what your hair looks like, what people care about is how you act around others. Don't be vain, be yourself. Baldness is cool.

  29. I got my dad to start using Nioxin alone, just the two steps and he was balding more than the guy in your picture and his hair has grown back to about the same amount as the guy in your pictures. My dad is 62 and had been bald/ balding for years.
    The trick with Nioxin (and maybe others like Rogain ~ I don't know) Is if you use any product on your hair (like gel or hair spray) to use their product. What Nioxin does is cleanses, opens, cleans out and then stimulates the hair follicle. If you use other products they just clog it back up and you don't get the same hair growth effect. Just a tip I learned while working at a spa :)

  30. Hello
    I have a question regarding the use. I read above that you shower in the morning and the nioxin part 3 has the most effect during the day, but I shower always in the evening when I come home after work. I have both nioxin and rogaine, so my question is, is it ok if I use in the evening nioxin part 1 and 2 and then rogaine and in the morning when I get up nioxin part 3? Will I be getting the most of it this way?

  32. I am skeptical of ANY hair loss treatment, those companies just prey on the emotions of those who are suffering with false hopes who have deep pockets. I do appalled the intent of this experiment, but so many things can make you look like you have more or less hair...such as distance from the camera, angle, lighting, length of hair, when you hair was last washed (if you have oily hair), etc. Trust me on this, I have lived this for 35 years and know all the techniques how to give a momentary illusion of more hair. Unfortunately, after reviewing these pics, I remained skeptical.

  35. Hi. I am willing to try this experiment. I've been using Nioxin 3 for about six weeks now. I will be starting Rogaine for women in a couple of days. I think this is an experiment that I will be willing to try. I noticed the thickening of my hair with the Nioxin 3 system, but no new hair growth. Glad I saw your experiment. I'll keep you informed.

  40. I've used the Nioxin system #1 but its was REALLY drying on my hair and scalp and that is NOT good for maintaining hair. I switched to the Shielo Volume Shampoo and for over 2 months and I am pretty sure it has helped thicken my hair. And Shielo doesnt dry it out like Nioxin.

    Can't tell if the Shielo Shampoo has actually done anything for the growth itself, but the existing hair has definitely become considerably easier to work with and healthier looking.

  41. I was on minoxidil 5% for 6 months. One month ago, I started to use nioxin (the shampoo and the conditionner) and the result is amazing.

  43. I have been using Nioxin shampoo, conditioner and the scalp treatment. I apply the scalp treatment on towel dried hair and massage into my scalp. I only wash my hair twice a week but I can tell that the hair shedding has almost gone away. It was coming out by the handfuls. Now, I just find a few hairs after washing. I was wondering if I could use Romaine in addition to my ritual but have not found anything saying it is safe.
