More than 1/3 of all women deal with hair loss — and no one ever really discusses the costs involved. From pricey store-bought scalp treatments to expensive salon visits, the costs can be crushing for someone on a budget. We also don’t talk about the emotional toll that female hair loss can have, and how the desperation to find a solution often leads to spending top dollar on treatments that don’t take. That’s why we’re always searching for the best haircare deals, from shampoo steals to leave-in conditioners that are backed by solid reviews and real science.
We found a deal happening on Amazon right now for a 30-day trial of the Nioxin System Kit Hair Strengthening & Thickening Treatment. From now through May 21, you can save 15% (and even up to 25%) on its regular price and over $2,000 per month in salon visits. This is the most it’s been discounted since December, so it’d be a good time to stock up before the prices increase again. Plus, with summer so close, you’ll want to find the best deals on products that can protect your hair and scalp from sun damage.

1. More than 1/3 of all women deal with hair loss.
We hear about male pattern baldness all the time, but no one ever seems to talk about female hair loss, which affects more than 1/3 of all women. It can be caused by a number of things, from taking a certain medication to stress, to even wearing your ponytail too tight. Another common cause is the hormonal changes that occur both during and after pregnancy. When Eva Graham lost more than half of her hair after giving birth in the 1980s, she developed Nioxin.
2. Nioxin has a solution for every hair type.
Whether you’re just starting to experience thinning hair or have been dealing with it for a while, Nioxin has six different systems to choose from — depending on the stage you’re at and if you’ve got natural, colored, or chemically-treated hair. For example, the System 2 Kit is made specifically for Natural Hair with Progressed Thinning, while System 4 is formulated for Color-Treated Hair with Progressed Thinning.
3. From now through May 21, Nioxin System Trial Kits are on sale for $29.75 at Amazon, where the product has 4,775 five-star reviews.
With the exception of Ulta and Amazon, Nioxin is only available to buy at salons, so it doesn’t go on sale very often. In fact, the last time it was priced this low on Amazon was in December 2022. (If you see Nioxin products for sale at Walmart.com, they are being sold by a third-party vendor.)
The Nioxin System Trial Kits are currently priced at $29.75 and include a month’s worth of products, which clocks in at a dollar per day.
4. Don’t let the words “trial kit” deter you — you’ll get a 30-day supply.
Every kit comes with a Cleanser Shampoo, a Scalp Therapy Revitalizing Conditioner, and a Scalp and Hair Leave-In Treatment. The shampoo and conditioner come in at just over 5 oz — almost twice the size of a typical travel-size bottle — while the Scalp and Hair Leave-In Treatment is 1.7 oz. You’ll use the kit every day and have enough to last for 30 days. Then, you can decide if the 90-day kit, priced at $55, is right for you.
5. You’ll save more than $2,000 a month by doing treatments at home, instead of daily salon visits.
Scalp and hair growth treatments can cost upwards of $150 at the salon, and that doesn’t include tax or tip. The Kim Sun Young Hair Salon in Los Angeles offers an exclusive Nioxin Head Spa treatment for $70 per visit, which would cost $2100 per month.
But if you buy the Trial Kit, you’ll be spending a dollar a day for an at-home routine, saving you over $2070 on daily salon treatments. We also like that the steps are surprisingly simple: Use the peppermint-scented shampoo and conditioner during your daily shower, followed by the leave-in treatment.
6. Get an extra 5% off Nioxin with the Amazon Prime credit card if you’re a Prime member (plus, get free shipping).
For a limited time, the Nioxin System Kit Hair Strengthening & Thickening Treatment is 15% off, with free shipping for Amazon Prime members. But if you’re an Amazon Prime member and you have the Amazon Prime credit card, you’ll get an extra 5% off, which drops the price down to $28. If you’re already familiar with the product and decide to subscribe and save, that’s another 5% off, for a total savings of 25%.
