Caf­feine-con­tain­ing sham­poo strength­ens women’s hair

The China Post - - SPORTS -

In 2015, tests were done on 600 women above 35 years old in Tai­wan to test the ef­fects of caf­feine sham­poo. The re­sults showed that up to 70 per­cent of women age 55 and above in the test had in­tense hair-loss prob­lems. Af­ter menopause, fe­male hair tends to grow thin­ner and fall out. Re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Jena found out that caf­feine can strengthen hair fol­li­cles as well as the scalp.

More­over, re­search has shown that a com­bi­na­tion of plants and caf­feine called phyto-caf­feine com­plex can help make hair health­ier. Thus, Plan­tur 39, a renowned sham­poo pro­ducer es­tab­lished by Dr. Kurt Wolff in 1905, has re­leased caf­feine-con­tain­ing sham­poos. Clin­i­cal tests con­ducted at the Char­ité Univer­sity Clinic in Ber­lin showed that af­ter two min­utes, the caf­feine en­tered the hair fol­li­cles and re­mained there for around 24 hours so daily ap­pli­ca­tion of the sham­poo is im­por­tant. Over­all, Plan­tur 39’s caf­feine sham­poo is per­fect for women over age 40 ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in­creased hair loss.
