Worried about Hair Thinning? What's Behind "Doping for Your Hair"?

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo, the No. 1 shampoo for men*, has sparked controversy among competitive athletes due to its potent caffeine formula.

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo has been the subject of debate following a warning on its label. According to research by the Charité University Hospital in Berlin (Germany), the caffeine present in this product could be traced in the hair hours after its application. This revelation about the No. 1 shampoo for men* has raised concerns among the sports community, especially among elite athletes, as the detection of caffeine in hair follicles could pose problems in anti-doping controls.

"After various investigations and consultations with experts, we have felt obliged to warn athletes about the high doses of caffeine in the shampoo, in order to avoid potential controversies," emphasizes the CEO of the company behind Alpecin, Eduard Dörrenberg. "We have been supporting and sponsoring elite sport for decades. Caffeine is a very effective substance, which is why we consider the warning to be very important."

However, he says that all other consumers can rejoice in this discovery, as this product provides visible results in just a few washes, strengthening hair and maintaining healthy hair growth.
