Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo summarised

Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo can be used to remove dandruff and to protect against its return. This product can also be used to fight against the effects of hair loss and promote hair growth. This shampoo is similar to Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1, except that product focuses exclusively on encouraging hair growth and does not include the function of removing dandruff.

Who can use Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo?

Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo is designed to be used by men who require treatment for their dandruff or hair loss. It can help men who are suffering from the effects of hereditary baldness caused by the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). If you are a woman seeking treatment for dandruff and/or hair loss, then you should seek an alternative kind of treatment (this is something you can consult your doctor about).

How does Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo work?

As well as caffeine, this shampoo also contains salicylic acid and piroctone olamine, which are effective in loosening scaly cells and dandruff on the scalp. The caffeine is used to stimulate the roots of the hair and prolong the hair growth phase.

As well as being effective at removing dandruff, this shampoo creates an antioxidant effect which leads to improved resistance against the return of the symptom. The ingredients of the shampoo also have an anti-inflammatory action to deliver a gentle removal of dandruff within your hair. Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo also contains niacin (vitamin B3) and zinc which both contribute to the process of improving the health of hair roots.

How to use Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo

While taking a shower, the shampoo should be massaged into your scalp and left on for at least 2 minutes before rinsing with water. If you wish to, you can leave this treatment on for more than 2 minutes to allow more caffeine to enter the scalp.

Can Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo cause side effects?

As is the case with any other medicinal product, Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo can possibly cause side effects, but most patients don’t notice them. The possible side effects can include redness and burning of the scalp. Such side effects are more likely to occur if you leave the shampoo in your hair for longer than recommended. Go and see a doctor if you experience any side effects which are prolonged or feel serious (such as symptoms of an allergic reaction, for example).

Do I need a prescription for Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo?

No, you do not. Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo is an over-the-counter product, so no prescription is necessary and it may be possible to find it in your local pharmacy and certain supermarkets. You can easily purchase this product online and have it delivered to your home or place of work using our own service here at Doctor-4-U.
