Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 250ml

Have you been noticing thinning hair each time you look in the mirror?  Hair loss can be a real downer, and if you're not liking what you see, you need to act fast to help reverse the process.  With the help of Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo you don't have to wait for your hair to be completely gone even before you reach the age of 40.  The special formula will help retard the progression of hereditary hair loss.


  • Germany's Number 1 Selling Shampoo
  • Helps activate hair roots during washing
  • Contains caffeine which helps protect the hair roots from testosterone attacks and provides hair with growth energy.
  • Assists in improving hair structure after just a few hair washes
  • Helps make hair stronger to allow for better hair styling


  • Caffeine travels along hair shaft to penetrate hair follicles during washing
  • Continues to develop even after rinsing off the shampoo
  • When shampoo is left on longer, the caffeine will also penetrate into the scalp.

How does it work?

Based on the studies conducted by the university clinic in Jena, it was proven that caffeine penetrates the hair roots and this protects the hair from the negative impact of testosterone, which is one of the causes of premature hair loss.  The experiment, conducted by Dr. Kurt Wolff, sought to incorporate sufficient amount of caffeine in a special shampoo formula. This amount would allow the release of caffeine to the scalp even during a short period of contact with the hair, yet would still be able to transport it to the hair roots.  This caffeine shampoo, with pending patent, came out with positive results and accomplished the set task after being left on the scalp for no more than 2 minutes.  And it was further supported by a new study that was conducted at the Berlin University Clinic (Charite).

Check out these two graphics that will show the results.

GraficGraphic 1 shows the entire penetration, i.e. across the scalp and the hair follicles.
During the first few minutes, the caffeine from the shampoo had already advanced to the hair follicles where it was still detectable after 24 hours.
Graphic 2 represents the difference in dermal and overall penetration. It shows the path of penetration via the hair sheath directly to the hair follicle.

Compared to overall penetration, it shows that during the first phase of penetration (2 minutes to 30 minutes), the hair sheath or hair follicle clearly dominates.
After 30 minutes, penetration via the scalp near the hair follicles has increased to such an extent as to ensure the continued availability of caffeine for up to eight hours.

This result shows the difference between short term penetration through the hair follicle and long term penetration through the scalp.

This then supports that daily shampooing using the caffeine shampoo will add the active ingredient caffeine to the hair follicle. And when left on for 2 minutes, caffeine penetrates the hair follicles and will help strengthen weakened hair roots and help prevent hereditary hair loss.

For best results:

  • Wet hair and shampoo hair using Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo.
  • Leave on hair for 2 minutes.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
