About Alpecin Double Effect Shampoo

Alpecin Double Effect Shampoo - Combats both dandruff and hair loss.
  • Alpecin Double Effect Shampoo loosens the crusty keratinous cells and removes dandruff from the scalp.
  • The removal of dandruff prepares the scalp for the caffeine complex.
  • The caffeine penetrates the hair and eliminates the hereditary testosterone barrier within the root (DHT), providing the energy needed for the hair to grow.
  • For those with flaky scalp conditions.
  • Hair becomes stronger and can be styled better.
  • Alpecin shampoo can used in conjunction with Regaine.
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 caffeine 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.

How to use Alpecin shampoo

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 Shampoo daily.
