Whether you're suffering from post-COVID hair loss (like Charmed star Alyssa Milano) or you've been dealing with thinning hair for years, shedding is an uphill — and often discouraging — battle. You're certainly not alone, though. Hair loss affects millions of men and women, but you don't need to spend a fortune on in-office treatments to put up a good fight. There are plenty of at-home regimens you can try first, and, according to Milano, one brand is so effective that you may never need professional help: The popular Nioxin anti-thinning hair system, which happens to be marked down at Walmart for Memorial Day.

After publicly sharing her hair-loss story via video on Twitter, Milano found the help she needed within a few bottles. She praises Nioxin products (and Nutrafol supplements too!) for helping "tremendously" with hair loss. And she's not alone: These products have found fans in shoppers who say the treatments have helped curb their own hair loss and revitalized their manes.

Designed for a range of hair types, the Nioxin haircare system is designed to purify the scalp and promote thicker, fuller hair growth. Every system kit contains a three-product base to help thicken hair: cleansing shampoo, which removes sebum and any environmental residue that may be clogging hair follicles; conditioner, which helps protect hair against breakage and control the balance of moisture in locks; and a leave-in treatment, formulated to leave hair thicker and appear fuller.

Each Nioxin System Kit is made with a specific hair type and concern in mind, and you'll get better results by choosing the one that suits your needs. Take this quiz from Nioxin, which divides their systems into three categories, to find your match.

If you don't color or chemically treat your hair and want to combat light thinning, System 1 is the kit for you.

Alyssa Milano isn't the only fan of Nioxin's Systems — here's what Walmart shoppers think.

"After months of using faithfully, my hair is coming back," wrote a fan. "I lost so much hair after having Covid several times. You have to be patient and faithful!"

"My hair was getting pretty thin," said another. "Once I started using Nioxin's 3-step kit, I have noticed an improvement in the thickness of my hair. My hair is still fine and thin, but nothing like it was before I started this product."

"I haven't noticed new growth," shared a final fan, "but the shampoo really does help my hair from shedding so much. I didn't realize it until I stopped using it, then came back to it."

Want to try Alyssa's other hair-rescuing go-to? Check out Nutrafol:

Our writers dubbed Nutrafol the best overall hair growth supplement for women, writing that "Nutrafol Women's Balance is a little pill that delivers mighty results thanks to a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, plus botanicals like horsetail, marine collagen, and solubilized keratin. Nutrafol's hair growth products are formulated to address the root causes of hair thinning and loss: hormones, stress, lifestyle, metabolism, nutrition and aging. As a bonus, many of its nutrients will support your overall health, including lowering stress and helping you sleep."
