About Alpecin C1 Shampoo

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 - The caffeine shampoo that fights against hair loss.
  • For normal hair/scalp types.
  • Caffeine has been proven to stimulate hair growth.
  • Formula strengthens weakened hair roots and prevents hereditary hair loss.
  • Hair becomes stronger and can be styled better.
  • Alpecin shampoo can used in conjunction with Regaine, Alpecin After-Shampoo Liquid, or both.
Men's skin is more sensitive than women's skin. This is due to the hormone testosterone which makes men's skin less robust and weakens its natural protective function significantly. For the scalp, this means that it loses moisture, its cells regenerate too slowly and both skin and hair roots age prematurely, thereby accelerating hair loss.

How Alpecin works

Using a special caffeine-based ingredient, Alpecin has been proven to successfully eliminate the negative impact of testosterone on the scalp.
After only 120 seconds on the scalp, the active ingredient travels along the hair shaft down into the hair's root. The longer that the Alpecin shampoo is left on the scalp, the caffine will completely penetrate through the skin.

Additionally there are also other reasons for men to really like this shampoo. Based on the intentional omission of softeners (eg.silicone), the hair structure improves after just afew hair washes with enhanced hair grip. Fine and weakened hair becomes stronger and can be styled better.

Lather and massage the shampoo into the hair and scalp. Leave to penetrate the scalp for at least 2 minutes - from application to rinse.

Continue to use Alpecin daily in order to receive the beneficial effects.
