Hair loss is men's number one problem

One out of two men suffers from hair loss!

In 80% of all cases hair loss is a predisposition and not a disease. Therefore, it can not be cured once and for all but must be treated continuously. Furthermore, the cosmetic solution is appropriate for long-term treatment, because pharmaceuticals that involve the risk of undesirable side effects are not necessarily required to treat a cosmetic problem.

What causes male hair loss?

Normally, the hair root is active for up to eight years (growth phase), followed by a resting phase. The hair root releases the hair and it falls out without the threat of hair loss. Subsequently, the hair root starts another growth phase and does so about 14 times before dying.

When men have a predisposition for hair loss, the energy supply to the hair roots is weakening. The regular growth phases of the hair are shortened and their lifetime ends prematurely.

With the corresponding predisposition for hair loss, the hair roots' metabolism is slowing down. This shortens growth phases and the hair roots' lifetime ends prematurely. If more and more hair roots die this way, male hair loss will be the result

What can you do against hair loss?

Prevent it with caffeine!

With a caffeine-based active ingredient combination, Alpecin has succeeded in prolonging the growth phases back to their normal length, which means that hair growth is possible well into old age.

If the hair roots become inactive prematurely, hair loss will occur. When treated with Alpecin Caffeine, the growth phases can extend again

The lack of energy caused by testosterone is evened out by caffeine. To ensure that the caffeine can go where it is needed, local application is required. Based on the special galenic formula in the Alpecin products, the active ingredients travel all the way directly to the hair shaft where they can unleash their effect.

The active ingredient protects the hair roots against the testosterone attack. This prolongs the growth phases, which means that hair growth is possible well into old age.

The positive effect on the performance increase of the hair roots has been proven by scientists.

"The treatment of hair loss must be performed early on, regularly and over the long term, if it is to be successful."
