I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid for 3 weeks and still haven't noticed any improvement of my hair loss.
Normally, increased hair loss should noticeably decrease after a period of about 3 to 4 months.
I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid for more than a year. No hair has grown back? Is Alpecin Caffeine Liquid ineffective?
The effect of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid is aimed at viable hair. The caffeine complex strengthens existing hairs. It is not a hair growth tonic.
Is it possible to overdose in a single day based on multiple applications of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid (e.g. after bathing in the morning and after exercising at night)?
No, the amount of caffeine absorbed via the scalp and hair sheath corresponds to approximately half a cup of coffee. This is absolutely safe even for people who react sensitively to caffeine.
Apart from Alpecin Caffeine Liquid, can I use other products such as gel or hair spray?
Yes, after massaging your scalp with Alpecin Caffeine Liquid, wait about 3 minutes until the product is absorbed; then use your styling product.
The recommended usage instructions on the product say "In the morning and after every hair wash, use the dosage tip to directly apply product to towel-dried scalp and massage in."
Can Alpecin Caffeine Liquid also be used on dry hair or is it absolutely necessary to wash the hair before application?
Alpecin Caffeine Liquid can also be used on dry hair. It is important that the liquid is applied directly to the scalp with the dosage tip and massaged in. Since the liquid dries quickly on the scalp, you can then style your hair as usual.
Based on the alcohol and menthol content, the liquid may cause a brief refreshing tingle, which subsides quickly. Be sure to avoid contact with the eyes.
Do you have to use Alpecin Caffeine Liquid every day?
The caffeine complex quickly travels along the hair shaft where it develops a depot effect that lasts up to 24 hours. To consistently help prevent hair loss, daily application is absolutely important.
For a few weeks, I have been using Alpecin Caffeine Liquid every day and I am noticing increased hair loss?
In rare cases, stronger hair loss can occur temporarily. This process is called "shedding." Based on an intensive scalp massage, hairs that are in their resting phase anyway can be massaged out of the follicles at an increased rate. However, after a brief period of time, this increased hair loss is reduced.
Despite the long-term application of Caffeine Liquid, I still lose a lot of hair? Are there some cases in which the product doesn't work?
The effectiveness of all products depends on the metabolism of the individual. Even the effectiveness of pharmaceuticals is not guaranteed, because each individual reacts differently. Some effects are also not perceived immediately.
What amount is required for proper application?
Dosage is easiest when the dosage tip is used to apply the liquid directly to the scalp, parting by parting, so that it can be massaged into the entire scalp. The areas around the forehead and the back of the head, which are particularly at risk, should be treated thoroughly. Nevertheless, areas with full hair growth should not be neglected either.
Does this caffeine based Alpecin products have any contraindications?
There are currently no known side effects.
Caffeine Liquid is a cosmetic product that is subject to the regulations of the European Cosmetics Directive,. Pursuant to this directive, cosmetics products must be free of side effects, which also applies to Caffeine Liquid by Alpecin.
Isn't alcohol harmful?
First of all, alcohol is not unhealthy for and has no negative effect on hair. Thanks to alcohol, Alpecin is quickly absorbed and distributes the active ingredients evenly on the scalp. This is important, if Alpecin is to be used daily without washing the hair every day as well. Water alone cannot do this; it would drip off.
