The caffeine-containing active ingredient combination helps preserve vigorous hair growth:
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.
Apply in the morning and after each hair wash to the towel-dried scalp and massage in. Do not rinse out. Allow to dry briefly, then comb hair again. Style as usual.
"With hair loss, a scalp massage with Alpecin Caffeine is a good morning exercise. It will help to reduce hair loss."
Laboratory Head Dr. Klenk at the Alpecin lab (Bielefeld, Germany).
(Information for competitive athletes: Alpecin Caffeine can be detected in hair follicles.)
