Before I start my review of the Nioxin Diaboost Thickening Treatment – a little backstory on how my hair has been. Back before having my hair coloured and cut in November, I was suffering with bad breakage and was noticing my hair was starting to look thinner – I have thick hair, and controversially I like having thick hair too, I never ask for my hair to be thinned out unless it’s going to help my layers sit better in places. November – January my hair was completely fine, but I’m back in a position where I’m struggling again with dryness and a bit of breakage (I think mostly caused by the dryness) so this has been pulled out and put away a few times.
I heard talk becky talk mention the Nioxin Diaboost treatment in a video back in November and decided to give it a try. Described as being a treatment which instantly helps improve the thickness of existing hair strands – It’s by no means a cheap product – at almost £30 for 100ml, I’ll admit that I was kind of expecting miracles and wizardry for such a price.
The first thing that was disappointing was the bottle – the pump on this product just isn’t up to scratch – it took me a good 2 or 3 days to actually manage to get any product out. Whether that’s my bottle, or it’s generally just crap I wasn’t sure.
The next problem I found was that you did need quite a bit of product, as with each use I could kind of see the pounds each time spraying into my hair. The product is quite a thick, almost gel like texture – which means it doesn’t go very far.
Third problem – I really didn’t notice a difference in what it did – I sprayed this 3 or 4 times and thought – no I really can’t tell what this is doing. But thought it must be doing something, so tried it on half my hair only – and still no difference between the two sides.
I will use this up as it’s so darn pricey but I’m about half way down it been using it on and off since November and I have no idea what it’s done to my hair up until now. For a £30 product I’d expect to see a difference when I stop or start using it – or after a month straight of using notice effects and I haven’t.
I’d say save your pennies with this one! Let me know if you’ve tried the Nioxin Diaboost Thickening Treatment and what you thought if so.
