What is Alpecin C1 Caffeine Shampoo and how does it work?

Alpecin C1 Caffeine Shampoo isn’t any ordinary shampoo that’s simply designed to wash your hair, this shampoo combines washing and cleansing with hair growth properties. Alpecin shampoo is a targeted shampoo for hair loss. It’s designed to slow down the effects of hereditary hair loss in men also known as ‘male pattern baldness’, the most common form of hair loss. It does this by strengthening the hair as weakened hair can lead to breakages and thinning. Using the active ingredient of caffeine, this shampoo stimulates the hair follicles while washing to encourage new hair to grow.

The shampoo penetrates deep into the hair all the way to the hair follicle and the caffeine gets to work stimulating the follicles even after the shampoo has been rinsed out. The caffeine can also penetrate into the scalp if the shampoo is left on for longer. Caffeine has been shown to reverse the effects of a hormone that is involved in hair loss known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Who is Alpecin shampoo suitable for?

Alpecin caffeine shampoo is suitable for adult men who are showing signs of hereditary hair loss. It is designed for hair loss in males only that is caused by high levels of the DHT hormone; it is not suitable for women who are experiencing hair loss. If you are a female and are struggling with the effects of hair loss speak to your GP, or alternatively, take a look at our female hair loss page for lots of information about the condition as well as treatments such as Regaine for Women Scalp Foam.

How to use Alpecin C1 Caffeine Shampoo

This product is used in the same way as a normal shampoo, simply apply it to your and scalp, massage it in and let it get to work. The shampoo will clean your hair and the caffeine will be absorbed deep into the roots to stimulate the hair follicles. Leave the product on your scalp for at least 2 minutes. To enhance the effects of the caffeine you may leave the shampoo on for longer than 2 minutes but be warned that this may cause some temporary redness on the scalp and do not attempt to leave the product on for longer than 2-5 minutes if your scalp is quite sensitive.
