Caffeine Shampoo Helps to Combat Menopausal Hair Loss

May 02, 2018

Hair Loss has become a common issue that not only happen in male but also women. Many women
experience thinner hair and hair fall due to hormonal imbalance during and after menopause besides symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, sleepless nights, depression and reduced sex drive.

Peter Wong, Head of Academy of A Cut Above Academy, commented: “While male pattern baldness is an accepted part of life for most men, the equivalent issue for women is still brushed under the carpet. Thinning hair shouldn’t be taken lightly - it can seriously affect women’s self-confidence and social life, creating unnecessary anxiety for those affected.”

Menopausal hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia, is caused by the drastic decrease of ‘hair friendly’ estrogens in the hair roots. These hormones help to protect the hair roots against testosterones, which are the main culprits for hair loss. With the onset of menopause, mostly when women hit the age 40 and above, the estrogen decreases, causing a hormonal imbalance where testosterones take over the place of estrogens in the hair roots, causing hair to fall out
prematurely.

In years of research and development German cosmeceutical company Dr. Wolff has effectively harnessed the stimulating compounds found in caffeine and put into a carrier base for shampoo. This allows the caffeine to be transported to the hair roots to help reduce hair loss. Dr. Ruban Nathan, Dermatologist for Hair Restoration, Director of Dr Ruban’s Skin & Hair Clinic stated, “Amongst all the available shampoo claims, the only credible claim with scientific backing is that the Caffeine-based shampoos have some benefit in pattern hair loss.”



A recent trial with female magazine readers in UK proved the efficacy of the products. A panel of 284 women aged between 40-64 tested Plantur 39 for 3 months and used the caffeine shampoo every time they washed their hair.After the three month trial 87% of women said the condition of their hair had improved after using Plantur 39. More than half (57%) noticed a reduction in hair loss and/or hair thinning since using Plantur 39 and 70% recognised less hair loss in the shower and hairbrush.
