Questions and answers

The caffeine complex is an active ingredient formula from caffeine, the trace element zinc and niacin.

Yes, after massaging your scalp with Alpecin Caffeine Liquid, wait about 3 minutes until the product is absorbed, then use your styling product.

In rare cases, this can occur temporarily. This process is called "shedding." Due to the intensive scalp massage, hairs that are anyway in their resting phase can be massaged out of the follicles at an increased rate. However, after a brief period of time, Alpecin Caffeine Liquid helps to maintain vigorous hair.

Dosage is easiest when the dosage tip is used to apply the liquid directly to the scalp, section by section, so that it can be massaged into the entire scalp. The areas around the forehead and the back of the head, which are particularly at risk, should be treated thoroughly. Nevertheless, areas with full hair should not be neglected either.

A very long time ago, sebum was meant to waterproof the hair and skin and protect humans from the cold. Since humans wear clothes, this function has become superfluous. In addition, germs and microorganisms that naturally occur on the skin use sebum as a source of nutrition. Degradation products of sebum irritate the skin, make it itch and accelerate the formation of the keratinous layer. The consequence is dandruff. When further sebum is released, these skin cells stick together to form large, visible skin flakes.
