What is caffeine shampoo?
Caffeine shampoos, like Alpecin and Plantur 39, are designed to treat hair loss by using caffeine extract.
The idea is that caffeine will be absorbed into the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles to regrow, however, research into its efficacy is ongoing.
It’s recommended that you should leave the shampoo in your hair for around 2 minutes before rinsing.
What causes hair loss in men?
Hair loss in men is usually hereditary, and this is a permanent type of hair loss but there are treatments such as minoxidil that can stop the balding process and encourage hair to grow.
Hair loss can also be caused by illness, stress, hormonal changes, or medication.
What hair loss treatments are available for men?
Hair transplants are pricey, so you might want to consider other treatment options first if you’re struggling with hair loss.
There’s a range of hair and scalp treatments that may promote hair growth in men, like Regaine products, or oral medication like Nourkrin tablets which aid the growth of new hair, whilst protecting your current.
Your doctor or pharmacist might prescribe you Finasteride, a medicine designed to treat men with mild to moderate hair loss.
Can shampoo cause hair loss?
If you’re suffering from hair loss, it’s unlikely that your shampoo is causing it.
You may be noticing that your hair falls out when you’re in the shower, but that’s usually nothing to worry about as we all naturally lose around 50-100 hairs a day.
When you wash your hair, it will shift the hair that has already become detached.
If you leave your hair a while before your next shampoo, the strands that have become loose are waiting to be removed by washing - the more days you leave it, the more hairs you’ll see.
If your hair loss is significant, it’s more likely to be caused by ageing or a medical issue such as stress, illness or certain medications.
