At least half of all men are affected by hair loss. In 80 per cent of cases hair loss is influenced by our genes, or more precisely, a hereditary over-sensitivity to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a metabolic product of testosterone. The testosterone reduces the energy supply to the hair roots and this results in shorter growth phases of the hair. As a result, the hair falls out prematurely and the hair which grows back becomes increasingly thinner until it stops growing back altogether.
Caffeine for hair loss
Studies prove that caffeine inhibits the negative effects of testosterone on hair growth, and it balances out the resultant lack of energy. This prolongs the growth phase of the hair to the normal length so that the hair can grow.
Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo
The active ingredient combination caffeine, zinc and niacin penetrates into the hair root during washing. It protects the hair from the negative testosterone effect, and stimulates hair growth. Weakened hair becomes stronger.
Hair loss during menopause
Thinning hair and hair loss are often a concern for women over 40, but why is that? Before the age of 40, the hair roots are protected by estrogen. But then, the testosterone attacks the hair roots. The result is thinning hair, receding hairline and hair loss. After showering, you may find more loose strands in the basin and your hairbrush. Although it is common to lose up to 100 strands of hair each day, anything more than that could be a sign of menopausal hair loss.
Plantur 39 for women
Plantur39 is specially designed for women over 40. The Phyto-Caffeine complex in Plantur39 Caffeine Shampoo protects the hair and supplies energy to promote healthy hair. The lack of conditioning agents also helps hair to retain volume. Say goodbye to thin and lifeless hair.
