New: The Caffeine-Shampoo

Losing your hair?

Caffeine promotes hair growth. It has even been proven to slow down hereditary hair loss. Now you can bring this unique active ingredient to your hair roots during normal hair washing – with Germany's first caffeine shampoo.

Although shampoos were used exclusively to cleanse scalp and hair in the past, Dr. Kurt Wolff-Research has now succeeded in developing a method for transporting caffeine all the way to the hair roots based on a shampoo formula.
Thanks to novel galenics (a special carrier base), caffeine already penetrates the scalp during hair washing where it develops its effect.

The hair root is the hair's vital center. The hair will only develop from the hair follicle to be strong and healthy, if enough strength and energy are available. In 50% of men, this performance of the hair roots is weakened by testosterone.

The consequence: The hair roots are not supplied with sufficient energy, they die prematurely and male baldness ensues.

As is known from previous studies by the University of Jena, caffeine protects the hair roots from testosterone attacks and provides them with the necessary growth energy.

New studies by the Berlin-based "Charité" university clinic prove the absorption of caffeine by the hair follicles after being left on for a mere 2 minutes. They also show that the caffeine remains detectable up to 24 hours.

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

How does the caffeine shampoo work?

Alpecin Caffeine penetrates even though the shampoo is rinsed out.

Over a short period of time (120 sec.), the active ingredient travels along the hair shaft directly to the hair follicle.

If the shampoo is left on for longer, the caffeine will also penetrate through the scalp.
