What are Alpecin products?

Alpecin shampoo and liquid products promote hair growth and slow down the process of hair loss in men. The products, such as Alpecin C1 and Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo, are enriched with caffeine, zinc and niacin: ingredients that increase the productivity of hair roots. Regular use of Alpecin products stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss. Alpecin shampoo and liquid products are available in various forms and do not require a prescription.

What are Alpecin products used for?

Alpecin has been developed for men who suffer from premature pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is a hereditary condition that is caused by a male sex hormone known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Men with male pattern baldness genes inherit hair follicles that are oversensitive to DHT. This oversensitivity causes the hair follicles to shrivel up and hair growth to thin, eventually stopping entirely. The result: hair loss and bald patches. Alpecin protects the hair follicles from DHT and helps prevent baldness, allowing men to enjoy a fuller and thicker head of hair.

How to use Alpecin products

Alpecin is available in different forms, as Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo, Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo and Alpecin Liquid. Alpecin Double Effect Caffeine Shampoo is intended for men struggling with hair loss and dandruff. Alpecin products are very easy to use. The shampoo is suitable for daily use. Allow to work for two to five minutes before rinsing thoroughly. The liquid should be applied to towel-dried hair after each hair wash. Massage gently into the scalp. Do not rinse out. Allow to dry briefly, then comb your hair and style as usual. To achieve the optimum result from your treatment it is important that you start using Alpecin early on. Continue to use the products to prevent the hair follicles from shrinking and hair loss to resume.

  • Adult men: Wash hair daily using a normal quantity of shampoo. Then apply a small amount of liquid to the scalp and massage in.
