FAQs


  • Alpecin C1 Caffeine Shampoo
    • What are the ingredients of the Caffeine Complex?
      • The Caffeine Complex is an ingredient formula made up from caffeine, zinc and niacin.
    • Does drinking coffee promote natural hair growth?
      • Since you ingest coffee orally, it will first pass through the gastrointestinal organs to be absorbed by the organism at a later time. Subsequently, it is distributed throughout the body and only a tiny quantity reaches the scalp and the hair directly. Even the consumption of 50 cups of coffee would not provide the hair with enough caffeine. Thus, a local and direct supply of caffeine to the hair is expedient and necessary.
    • Are the Alpecin products also appropriate for women?
      • Alpecin products were specifically developed for the requirements of male scalps, which is also reflected by the fragrance and the masculine packaging. However, the caffeine-based ingredient is also appropriate for women.

    • Apart from Alpecin After Shampoo Liquid, can I use other products such as hair gel or hair spray?
