Caffeine Liquid

Increases productivity of the hair roots

Alpecin-products you can purchase at hair salons, pharmacies, drugstores or the drugstore aisles of grocery stores.

Stimulate hair growth with energy for the hair roots

The caffeine-containing active ingredient combination of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid keeps hair roots awake and contributes to extending their growth phases for longer than provided for by hereditary predisposition. When applied, it causes a fresh tingling on the scalp. Its active ingredients travel along the hair shaft and form a depot sufficient for up to 24 hours. The hair roots become more productive and hair growth is accelerated. Counteract premature hair loss at the source with Alpecin Caffeine Liquid.

With hereditary hair loss, a scalp massage with Alpecin Caffeine Liquid is a must each morning as it helps to normalise the growth phases of the hair roots.
