Alpecin caffeine shampoo is widely advertised in the UK and in certain countries worldwide.It originates in Germany. They claim that the key ingredient of Caffeine will help to restore lost hair. We decided to investigate these claims to see if Alpecin is really the best product for hair regrowth.
Caffeine is said to help slow the loss of hair because of its effect on regulating testosterone. High testosterone levels are linked to high DHT levels which is thought to play a role in hair loss.
We know that Alpecin is absorbed by the body thanks to the clinical studies posted on its official website.The problem is that caffeine in the body could interfere with the absorption of iron, vitamins and minerals that are needed to maintain hair growth.
Caffeine is also linked to high stress levels which we know can lead to hair loss. It can cause the heads blood vessels to constrict which can reduce blood flow to follicles. Follicles need a healthy blood supply to regenerate lost hairs.
I also have to point out that Alpecin research has been carried out on men only, and no women. This needs to be highlighted because men and women's hair loss responds differently to hair loss and growth factors.
To conclude, Alpecin is a cheap product to try for hair loss but please bear in mind that caffeine containing shampoos may actually cause hair loss due to the high caffeine content.
To stop hair loss you need a hair loss product that:
- Improves blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles
- Speeds up hair growth
- Causes lost hair to regrow
- Works for men and women
That product is called Har Vokse, a Norwegian formula that has a careful blend of ingredients that can achieve all of the above and more.
