About Alpecin Shampoo Double Effect

Alpecin Double Effect Shampoo combines two anti-dandruff treatments with Alpecn’s Caffeine Complex. This is to make sure your scalp is free from dandruff and fully prepped to help treat hair loss.

Alpecin Double Effect uses both salicylic acid and piroctone olamine, which help to remove dandruff and provide an anti-inflammatory effect. This combination ensures the scalp is cleared of dandruff to allow the caffeine complex to penetrate the scalp for the best effect.

Alpecin’s caffeine complex is designed to penetrate into the hair root and help strengthen hair, while also stimulating the hair follicles to promote new hair growth.


Some patients may find that Alpecin Double Effect Shampoo isn’t as effective at treating their symptoms. Here at Simple Online Pharmacy, we have a number of alternatives available, including;

How does Alpecin Double Action Shampoo work?

Alpecin Double Action Shampoo has two main effects. Firstly, it uses a combination of salicylic acid and piroctone olamine to help clear the scalp of dandruff, leaving the scalp clean and protected. Once the scalp is clear of dandruff, the caffeine complex can get to work. 

This secondary effect treats the hair follicles with caffeine, stimulating resting follicles into growing hair and strengthening the hair follicles to help prevent hair loss.

Note that this product will not reactivate dead hair follicles; in these cases, there will be no new hair growth.

What causes hair loss?

There are many factors that can lead to your hair thinning. As we age, our hair follicles can enter a dormant phase - they are no longer producing hair, but are not yet “dead”. These are the hair follicles treatments like Alpecin can help to stimulate.

The most common cause of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness; up to 50% of men will experience some form of male pattern baldness. This is because the hair follicles are forced into a dormant state by high levels of testosterone.

Other factors, such as stress, malnutrition, overexposure to certain beauty treatments, and side effects from some medical treatments can all contribute to hair loss.
