On Wednesday night I made my way down to the Michael John Salon in Central London to try out a revolutionary new hair care system which helps to encourage hair growth, thickness and strength. As a blonde who has dry and damaged hair from over 7 years of bleaching, my hair was begging for a pamper and Nioxin’s treatment sounded like the perfect solution!
Firstly, the Michael John Salon is just lovely – very spacious and stylish, with shelves full of products that had my full attention; Phillip Kingsly & Essie for example! I was booked in to try out the Scalp Renew Dermabrasion, followed by the Nioxin Thicker Hair Blow-Dry. The treatments are inspired by skin care – with a three step regime that works together to help the health of your scalp and restore the condition to leave you with fuller, thicker hair.
The Scalp Renew Dermabrasion Treatment
I was settled down in a massaging chair (heaven) and my hair was washed twice with the Nioxin Cleanser – which made sure my hair was squeaky clean and free from all residues. Then the Scalp Renew Dermabrasion Treatment was applied all over my scalp, massaged in a little and was then left to work its magic for 5 minutes. This product is basically like an exfoliator for your head; it makes sure none of the pores are clogged meaning that your hair follicles can grow easily. After that, the product was washed off and the Nioxin Deep Repair Masque was left in my hair for a couple of minutes to help restore some moisture by repairing the hair shafts.
The Nioxin Thicker Hair Blow-Dry
After using the Nioxin products, I was treated to a Michael John Signature Blow Dry which helped make my hair super soft and swishy. I had a few gentle waves put in my hair (as I’m not one for a sleek straight look) and voila, I was done!

What I think of the In-Salon Treatment
The treatment is perfect for those who have thin or chemically treated hair or even for those who want to overall improve the general condition of their hair, maybe because it’s a little damaged because of heated styling tools. My hair has not felt this soft, manageable and shiny in a very long time – I literally can not stop touching (and swishing!) it! It also feels a lot lighter and therefore is much easier to comb through and look after.
I was given the Nioxin At-Home 3 Part System and the Hair Masque to take home with me and try out for a month. The kit consists of a Cleanser (shampoo), Scalp Revitalizer (conditioner) and a Scalp Treatment. At the end of the month I will be writing up a full review of the At-Home products and giving you my feedback on the range, so stay tuned for that!
The 3 Part System retails at £27.99 and is available for 6 different hair types, from thin to coarse to chemically treated hair, so there is something for everyone. The In-Salon Scalp Dermabrasion Treatment and Blow Dry is £45. You can read more about it all here – www.nioxin.com
