There is a lot of talk on caffeine shampoos, such as the alpecin shampoo, plantur 39 shampoo and even the alpecin liquid version – but do they really grow hair because of the caffeine in them?
Caffeine is known to constrict blood flow, so this was surprising that someone stated that caffeine can do this to hair growth – and when looked more closely – if applied topically, caffeine will actually do the opposite of hair growth – if anything, it will increase hair thinning if you are already suffering from it!
I know it sounds ridiculous – but read this article here, as well as do a google search, and you will find scholarly articles and documents proving this – that caffeine restricts blood flow.
So how are these shampoo’s being sold online as hair growth products?
These shampoos do not actually help hair growth – but are filled with fatty substances that inflate the hair shaft, making it appear thicker as long as the shampoo is used regularly – this means more business for the shampoo company, but no real results for the end user, if they are hoping to get real results, that is.
If it’s not your thing to grow thicker hair, and you are happier to just have this temporary effect, then these types of shampoos are fine – although they may cause further inflammation and may make current hair situation worse, over time (over 1-3 year use).
If you are interested in actually thickening hair – looking for a product right away, is silly – you need to look internally – what went wrong; because clearly one of these aspects have a problem and need work on – as follows:
– Circulation: This includes circulation to your scalp, vessels in your scalp and around it, and the general body and organs. Even reduced organ circulation will cause hair loss – as toxicity build up will result in inflammation increase in the scalp – a fix for this is, cardio everyday, and scalp massage everyday.
– Hormone: You may be addicted to sugars, which are keeping hormones imbalanced, and preventing thicker hair from even forming – reducing all sugars, including natural, as well as carbs and fat (which are also classified as sugar in this case) and going on a lean meat protein diet with leafy greens, will help hormone detox and balance itself out. You will also look years younger than you can imagine if done for 2 weeks.
– Emotional Stability: Here is most people go wrong today and is most under-rated. Emotions affect hormones, and hormones will then imbalance, and affect the body, and the way you look, including hair and skin. There is a fix for this, and it’s a combination of exercise as well as meditation of 30 minutes a day. Meditation helps reset the thought framework of the mind, and you just have to sit there and breath, and try to not linger any thoughts too long – its actually work, and not necessarily relaxing – as it looks – although afterwards you will feel more balanced and relaxed – done for long enough, you will see real results on your face and hair and emotional stability.
