I stumbled across this deal in Boots 2 days ago (apologies for the delay in posting!). They are doing 3 for 2 on Alpecin Caffeine shampoo and if your missus has a Boots card (are blokes allowed them???) then there is a 25% off shampoo voucher at the moment out of that pink ATM thing, but it only comes off ONE bottle so net result is £5.49 + £5.49 - £1.37 = £9.61 = £3.20/bottle. 3 for 2 on most/all shampoos, etc, and includes the other Alpecin options so knock yourselves out! Happy hair growth chaps!

Alpecin will not re-grow hair that has long departed. It is to stop further hair loss by stimulating the roots of the last few strands you have. Think of it as your head is the middle east and it is constantly under attack by hair loss (Putin's weapons) but a few follicles are holding on (rebels) but they now need the help of Alpecin (UN) to save them, but only Boots (Obama) has the best offer to resupply them. Make sure you don't put any peroxide on it though (Sarin).

Caffeine cannot be absorbed through the skin, so this product is 100% useless.

Seems like a pretty good option if you're after Alpecin. Is it known to actually have decent effects?

Boots card's saved me quite a bit of money in the past, even if it's just going in to buy deodorant. Girlfriend also inevitably misplaces hers so she uses mine when buying loads of expensive make-up haha

Common wisdom on hair loss forums says to use a shampoo containing Ketoconazole (Nizoral being the most popular, not for daily use) to control the part that leads to further loss and a Minoxidil solution (Rogaine/Regaine being the most popular) for regrowth, note that Minoxidil by itself is useless if you don't use anything to stop the loss. Certain oral drugs seem to have the best effect from anecdotal evidence but the side effects are too scary for me and I'll leave you to do the research on that. The brands I've listed above are neither the cheapest/best value or the ones with all the bells and whistles, other product types can make this as complicated as you want too, I'm just giving you the popular option for those who aren't going to do any reading and buy random solutions like Alpecin.

So if you are losing your hair you have fungus causing the loss? Looking on the web Ketoconazole is used to kill fungus infections, dandruff, dermatitis etc.
Can't see anything anywhere saying it is a preventative to hair loss?

Used this for a year.... didn't see any effects. Nothing as yet is really effective. MinoxidiI has a small effect in some people. The 'cure' has yet to be found.

This stuff stops my head from itching. I couldn't give a stuff at going bald but my head was itching like crazy as i was losing hair. Various shampoo's and a trip to the Doc still didn't cure terminal dandruff but within a week of using this i'm itch free.
Thanks OP heat added.

You'd be better off just adding caffeine powder to Nizoral. Or even just water. It's pretty soluble.

I actually used this on my chest to look more masculine. I got some good feedback at a local sauna I visited recently, soft and thick.

Results vary, but if you want to look more bear this could be for you!

Nope. Hair is "dead" material and even if it absorbed caffeine, it wouldn't transmit it to the follicle.
#22
Alpecin doesn't claim to help hair re-grow, just prevent it from falling out in the first place. As with anything, it doesn't work for everyone, but if it didn't work at all would Boots still be selling it? Looking at the manufacturers website the product does seem to have been fully researched and has been on the market in Gemany and the UK for some time now. Maybe people are buying it for the car wash shaped bottle?

I've seen their adverts on the TV many times, but only now do I learn that it's supposed to prevent baldness...

...says a lot about its effectiveness if they're not even allowed to hint.
#24
Working for me. My hair was thinning very quickly but this seems to have slowed it dramatically. Really nice shampoo too.
#25
I agree with Rubisco. They don't make any claims about effectiveness because they can't prove it does anything. Minoxadil (Regaine) slows hair loss at a cost. Finasteride (Propecia) is a tablet that regrows some hair. You can get on it on private prescription or via a Boots pharmacy for around 30 quid a month. That's the price of vanity for something that works. I gave up went bald.

So if you are losing your hair you have fungus causing the loss? Looking on the web Ketoconazole is used to kill fungus infections, dandruff, dermatitis etc.
Can't see anything anywhere saying it is a preventative to hair loss?

You could start with Wikipedia maybe and decide whether the quoted sources have any validity, there's a million other web pages on keto and hair loss did you try searching for hair loss too? A quick summary of its effects: it reduces the ability of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to interact with the scalp, DHT interaction contributes to the most common form of hair loss. It isn't the final word on hair loss and doesn't affect all types of hair loss, in a few cases it may even exacerbate the situation, but if people are going to gamble on random products you may as well gamble on those that have the highest general approval first.

Topical ketaconazole will have minimal systemic effects (ie no effect on hair loss). If there was a hint of tangible evidence it worked it would be researched to death and sold for hair loss - the market is huge. The tablet form of ketaconazole is being taken off the market due to side effects. The shampoo isn't because it is only topical and doesn't penetrate the skin. Buyer beware.

You've got to be joking, Regaine is extortionate. Minoxidil direct sell it for a fraction of the price.

I used minoxidil and finasteride for 3 years, it stimulated the hair growth briefly and held the crown out just about, now it's time to look at transplants and micropigmentation. There's a guy called 'Spex' who seems to be the oracle on this stuff, google him if your hair is as important as mine is to me!

I have been using this for 2 years now and it has stopped my hair from receding!! give it nice volume too because my hair is thinning.

Also use the Liquid stuff after, makes your head tingle but seems to be working :)

Germany has a lot of companies that profit from buying cheap coffeee beens and adding value by turning them into instant coffee. This is just a way of further increasing their profits by using the caffeine they remove.

Why is there a debate on here as to whether this product works or not? There is plenty of debate elsewhere on the web about this subject. Isn't this site supposed to be about whether the OP has got a good deal or not?
