Alpecin Caffeine Liquid
Questions and answers
I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid for 3 weeks and still haven't noticed any improvement in my hair condition.
It takes a certain time until the hair roots regenerate. Normally, you should see an effect after a period of about 3 to 4 months.
I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid for more than a year. No hair has grown back? Is Alpecin Caffeine Liquid ineffective?
The effect of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid is aimed at the viable hair roots. The caffeine complex strengthens existing yet weakened hairs or hair roots. It is not a hair growth tonic.
Is it possible to overdose in a single day based on multiple applications of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid (e.g. after bathing in the morning and after exercising at night)?
No, the amount of caffeine absorbed via the scalp and hair sheath corresponds to approximately half a cup of coffee. This is absolutely safe even for people who react sensitively to caffeine. In addition, the active ingredient is applied locally to the scalp; the quantities that disseminate throughout the organism from there are negligible.
Yes, after massaging your scalp with Alpecin Caffeine Liquid, wait about 3 minutes until the product is absorbed, then use your styling product.
Can Alpecin Caffeine Liquid also be used on dry hair or is it absolutely necessary to wash your hair before application?
Alpecin Caffeine Liquid can also be used on dry hair. It is important that the liquid is applied directly to the scalp with the dosage tip and that it is massaged in. Since the liquid penetrates the scalp quickly, you can then style your hair as usual. Be sure to avoid contact with the eyes. Based on the alcohol and menthol content, the liquid may cause a brief tingle, which subsides quickly.
The caffeine complex quickly penetrates the hair roots, where it develops a depot effect that lasts up to 24 hours. To consistently provide the hair roots with sufficient energy and to protect them against the negative impacts of testosterone, daily application is absolutely important.
For a few weeks, I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid every day and I notice that my hair condition is worsening?
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 healthy hair growth.
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 growth should not be neglected either.
Alpecin Caffeine Liquid is a cosmetic product that is subject to the regulations of the European Cosmetics Directive. Pursuant to this directive, cosmetics products must be free of side effects, which also applies to Alpecin Caffeine Liquid.
First of all, alcohol is not unhealthy and has no negative effect on hair. Thanks to the alcohol, Alpecin Caffeine Liquid is quickly absorbed and the active ingredients are transported even through oily skin layers. This is important if the product is to be used daily without washing your hair every day as well. Water alone cannot do this; it would form droplets and roll off.
