From : Becky, Message : I’m a 56 year old black female and I have been using the Nioxin products now for at least 2 months. I have purchased Nioxin Intensive Therapy Recharging Complex Vitamins and before I start taking them I would like to know if a person suffers from heart palpatations from food or drink items that may consist of caffeine or any ingredient that may have a caffeine effect to them; is this vitamin safe to take?

My nail salon where I purchased my Nioxin products from; my technician said she takes the vitamin and they give off a lot of energy and that they should be taken in the morning. So I’m asking is this a vitamin that makes you jittery or nervous like cause if so then this vitamin won’t be for me. I have female pattern baldness and have gone almost completely bald in the crown area. I’m still waiting on the results from the shampoo, conditioner and leave in conditioner and plus I’m on the second bottle of the follicle booster. Will this product help me? I’ve been losing my hair for the past 13 years at least. I wear my hair cut very short and close to the scalp so the crown baldness isn’t too noticeable. My next step if this product doesn’t work is to either shave my head and wear it bald or purchase a wig.

Dear Becky,

I trust this finds you well. Yes am referring to you as Becky because of privacy issues, so do not be surprised at all. First and foremost I would like to take this early opportunity to tender my apologies for taking so long to reply. I was away taking care of some personal issues that is why I took so long. I trust you are well though.

In regards to your question about Nioxin products and specifically the Nioxin Intensive Therapy Recharging Complex, first and foremost I should tell you that you made the right choice in purchasing this product. Unless you will be the first reviewer to talk of any adverse side effects, the Nioxin Intensive Therapy Recharging Complex is 100% safe to use.

However, I would strongly recommend against using them with the caffeinated drinks, at least for the first few weeks of use so that they do not interfere with the normal system of operation. This would also be good because you will be able to rule out if it’s indeed the vitamins or something else that has helped in hair re-growth or subsequent hair loss. Save for that, everything else is safe. With time you can introduce your caffeinated drinks in small quantities.

About being jittery and/ or nervousness, and the ability to exude ‘abnormal’ energy in the morning, well, I would say that is a unique case to your nail salon technician. It is important to note that the Nioxin Intensive Therapy Recharging Complex vitamins is made of 100% natural ingredients, as it has herbal extracts, co-zyme 10, and amino acids among many others. Being natural, it would be hard to expect any adverse or negative side effects from the product. It is important to point out however that taking any medication, even if it is an all natural medication such as the Nioxin Intensive Therapy Recharging Complex, is never advisable and you may end up experiencing some not-so-attractive side effects.

So in response to your question, yes, the product will without a shadow of a doubt help you. You should however note that because you have suffered from the problem for a significantly longer period of time, you shouldn’t expect to see tangible results after the first two weeks. You will need to take the supplements for a considerable period of time in order to see tangible results. Patience is really the key here.

Once you couple the supplements with the other Nioxin hair care products that you have stated in your email that you are currently using, you can rest assured of success in the end. Female pattern baldness is not a good thing, which is for a fact, but with this product, you can rest assured that it will significantly help you fight the root cause of the problem from the inside out.

Thank you so much Becky for taking your time to write to us. I sincerely hope that despite the overdue response, my response will help you make an informed decision, and hopefully avert the female pattern baldness that you are experiencing now. I wish you all the best. Always feel free to talk to us about all hair problems that you might be having, and we will always be ready to help where we can.
