Hereditary hair loss and scalp problems

How Alpecin can counteract this

80% of all cases of hair loss are hereditary, which means that they are pre-programmed from birth. The male hormone testosterone negatively impacts the growth cycle of the hair roots, which results in hair loss and baldness.

The Alpecin Caffeine Complex counteracts the undesired effect of testosterone and extends the growth phases of the hair roots. This prevents hereditary hair loss.

The special combination of active agents also counteracts scalp problems such as itchy scalps, dandruff or sunburnt scalps.
