A relatively new hair loss treatment is gaining in popularity as studies confirm its benefits as a hair loss treatment. Caffeine is usually associated with coffee drinks which are derived from coffee bean extracts. However, Caffeine shampoo is becoming more widely available as it has been proven to be an effective ingredient in hair loss products, such as Plantur 39 caffeine shampoo and Alpecin double effect shampoo.
Caffeine acts naturally as a pesticide in the leaves and fruits of certain plants, where it can cause paralysis in certain species of insect who may be attracted to the plant as a source of food. For humans, however, it is safe to use in various foodstuffs and drinks after being extracted from coffee plant beans and leaves of the tea bush.
Hair loss treatments have historically been like searching for the Holy Grail for the many men suffering from hair loss. One half of all men have hair loss to some degree and many feel the need to find a solution to either reduce the hair loss, or make a recovery to fuller growth.
By far the most common reason for hair loss in men is androgenetic alopecia, in other words – hereditary male pattern hair loss. Passed down from generation to generation, such hair loss is always difficult to cure and remains one of the main cosmetic issues faced by men today.
Hair roots generally grow in an 8-year cycle, producing new hair during a growth phase that is repeated around a dozen times before the root dies. However, a hereditary excess of testosterone weakens the hair roots in the scalp, causing hair loss due to premature end of the hair root. Testosterone achieves this by preventing the natural supply of an energy compound to the hair root which is required to maintain the growth phase of the hair root.
A caffeine shampoo counteracts the reduction of the natural energy compound at the hair root by providing active ingredient at the root, thus promoting an extended growth phase. Alpecin double effect shampoo is one such caffeine shampoo which, when applied daily, has been shown to remain on the scalp even after a short application period. This promotes the absorption of caffeine into the scalp and the hair follicle is provided with the energy needed to continue producing hair. As a result, premature hair loss is prevented, hair root activity is increased and the speed of hair growth is improved. These benefits also apply to people who suffer from traction alopecia, making Alpecin double effect shampoo a suitable shampoo for people with traction alopecia or thinning hair.
An independent German study has successfully shown that the caffeine component of the Alpecin shampoo is capable of countering the negative effects of testosterone on the male hair follicle that would normally lead to male pattern baldness. The study concluded that using a caffeine shampoo resulted in an average hair growth increase of over 45% and the life of the hair was increased by over one third.
Plantur 39 caffeine shampoo is also promoted as a hair loss remedy for women. As estrogen performs a natural protection for women’s hair follicles early in their life, it is only after the menopause that an increase in testosterone can lead to hair loss for women. Daily treatment with Plantur 39 caffeine shampoo can counter act this damaging increase is testosterone and promote a longer more productive growth cycle for the hair follicle.
For men and women alike, caffeine shampoo is helping improve the condition of the scalp and encourage a healthier head of hair, thanks to daily treatments of caffeine.
