Who is this Alpecin Shampoo suitable for?
Alpecin C1 is designed as a form of treatment for adult men who are suffering from the effect of hereditary baldness, caused by the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Using this shampoo will protect the hair follicles from the effects of DHT, which causes the hair to shrivel up before thinning and then falling out, leaving bald patches.

Can Alpecin C1 be used by women?
Alpecin Shampoos are only intended for men looking for treatment for baldness caused by DHT. If you are a woman and feel that you require treatment for hair loss, you should seek medical advice from a doctor.
