Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 250ml

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 stimulates the hair growth directly at the roots. Washing your hair daily with Alpecin C1 immediately provides the hair roots with the activating caffeine ingredient, which can be detected after being left on for as little as 120 seconds. If left on for longer, more caffeine will be absorbed into the scalp. This shampoo does not contain any conditioning agents so your hair will immediately have more grip.

What to do against hair loss?

First of all, hereditary hair loss is a genetic predisposition, not a disease. As such, it cannot be permanently cured but must be continuously treated. This is where Alpecin has proved valuable. The caffeine contained in Alpecin prevents the hair roots from following their hereditary propensity for increased hair loss and ensuing baldness.

Alpecin prevents hair loss – without any undesirable side effects.

When applied, it causes a fresh tingling on the scalp, its active ingredients travel along the hair sheath and form a depot sufficient for up to 24 hours.

Every morning, by using Alpecin it will take just a small effort to ensure that the caffeine-based ingredient combination protects you from hair loss.

“Hair loss treatment must be performed early, regularly and over a longer time period, if it is to be successful.“

Dr. A. Klenk
Head of Dr. Kurt Wolff-Research

Alpecin has a highly effective caffeine complex. With its caffeine-based ingredient combination, Alpecin keeps the hair roots active and helps extend their growth phase longer than genetically predisposed:
  • Counteracts premature hair loss
  • Increases hair root productivity
  • Enhances the speed of hair growth
The Alpecin active ingredients are applied directly where they are needed. This way, Alpecin allows a high dosage without stressful impacts on the organism.

Losing your hair?

Activate your roots during washing with Alpecin

Caffiene promotes hair growth. It has even been proven to slow down hereditary hair loss. Now you can bring this unique active ingredient to your hair roots during normal hair washing with Alpecin caffiene shampoo.

Although shampoos have been used almost exclusively to cleanse scalp and hair in the past, Dr. Kut Wolff-Research has now succeeded in developing a method for transporting caffiene all the way to the hair roots based on a shampoo formula.

Thanks to novel galenics (a special carrier base), caffiene already penetrates the scalp during hair washing where it develops its effect.

The hair root is the hair's vital center. The hair will only develop from  the hair follicle to become strong and healthy if enough energy and strength is available. In 50% of men this performance of the hair roots is weakened by testosterone. The resulting consequence of this is that when the hair roots are not supplied with sufficient energy, the prematurely die and this, in turn, causes male baldness.

Previous studies by the University of Jena have shown that caffiene protects hair roots from testosterone attack, as well as providing them with the necessary energy needed for growth. New studies by the charité university clinic have proved the absorbtion of caffiene by the hair follicles after being left on for a mere 2 minutes. They also show that the caffiene remains detectable for up to 24 hours.

However, Alpecin holds added benefits for men. Based on the intentional omisision of softeners within the shampoo, the hair structure is improved after just two washes, leading to improved hair grip.This means that fine and weakened hair becomes stronger and can be styled with greater ease.


Lather and massage the shampoo into the hair and scalp. Leave on the scalp for 2 minutes - from application to rinse. This shampoo does not contain any conditioning agents so your hair will immediately have more grip.
