What is a caffeine shampoo?
A caffeine shampoo is a shampoo that contains larger does of caffeine. Needless to say every caffeine shampoo company makes the shampoos with different ingredients, but they all have one thing in common – caffeine.
What does a caffeine shampoo do?
The caffeine shampoo is meant to target premature hair loss. The caffeine in the shampoo penetrates the roots of the hair which protects the hair from any negative testosterone impacts. It can make the hair become thicker and fuller, while stimulating the scalp and „waking up“ the hair follicles.
The shampoo takes about 120 seconds to make its way down to the shaft of the hair and penetrate the root. You can also leave it on for a longer time so the caffeine will penetrate trough the scalp as well.
When you rinse the shampoo out of your hair, the caffeine will still continue to enter the roots of the hair.
Who should use caffeine shampoos?
From what we’ve seen the caffeine shampoo is advertised out on the TV for people over 30 years of age, but generally it’s meant for anyone who’s experiencing premature hair loss.
Do the caffeine shampoos work?
Caffeine shampoos are advertised out at every shop that handles beauty products, but while their marketing is not a problem, then their effectiveness is.

The caffeine shampoo works differently with every person who uses it, showing more results for some than it does for others. All you can do is try it out and see if it works for you.
