What is Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo?

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo contains the active ingredients caffeine, zinc and niacin which within just 2 minutes helps to stimulate the growth of new hair, strengthens your existing hair and helps to slow down hereditary hair loss

Each bottle contains 250ml of shampoo that has been designed without the use of silicones, which are typically used to soften hair, to help improve the structure and strength of each follicle, leaving you with healthier, more energised hair. 

 

What is Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo used for?

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo is designed to increase the rate at which your hair grows and also to slow down the rate at which you lose hair due to hereditary hair loss. 

Hair loss is not usually harmful but can lead to you feeling embarrassed, self-conscious or struggling with your self-esteem. Hair loss can have several different causes, however, female and male pattern baldness runs in families causing gradual but permanent hair loss. If you have hereditary hair loss it will become apparent as you get older. 

If you have suddenly started losing large volumes of hair that is leaving you with bald patches and are unsure of the cause you must speak to a doctor before starting any treatments. 

 

How does Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo work?

Caffeine, zinc and niacin are the main components of Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo. They work in unison to help improve the health of the hair, penetrating the hairs follicles to travel up to the roots, prolonging the growth phase of each hair, stimulating growth and reducing the rate at which old hair is lost. 

 

How quickly does Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo work?

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo should be applied to the hair and scalp for 2 minutes each day. This gives the formula enough time to infiltrate the roots and shafts of the hair, allowing it to work quickly to stimulate the growth of your hair. Strengthening your hair from the very first wash.
