Caffeine Shampoo and what it can do for your hair

Coffee lovers know that the beverage offers more than just an energy boost. Its caffeine content may have a beneficial effect on hair follicles. A study published in the British Journal of Dermatology in 2014 found that the use of caffeine may be linked to healthier hair. If your hair health is lacking, there are various products and supplements available that claim to offer improved growth and strength.

A recent study published in the British Journal of Dermatology concluded that caffeine has a beneficial effect on hair growth. Findings showed that caffeine stimulates hair cell production, increased hair root size, and prolonged the hair growth phase. Additionally, it was found to block the action of hormones that can result in hair loss, particularly for those with male pattern baldness.

A further study determined that topical applications of caffeine-enriched shampoo allow the absorption of caffeine directly into the hair follicles. This suggests that caffeinated hair products may provide a simple and effective solution for those suffering from premature hair loss.

Recent research has demonstrated that caffeine contains cell-protective antioxidant properties, as outlined in a December 2012 review published in Skin Pharmacology and Physiology. In November 2021, the International Journal of Cosmetic Science reported that a six-month trial of a shampoo and leave-in treatment enriched with antioxidants significantly improved hair fullness by reducing shedding, increasing total hair count, and enhancing the scalp skin barrier.

A 2007 study determined that caffeine had a positive impact on hair growth in male participants. Results showed that caffeine was able to block the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on hair follicles while simultaneously encouraging longer hair shafts.  Furthermore, it was found that the longer the follicle was exposed to caffeine, the longer the hair shafts grew.

Regular treatment of damaged hair with coffee or caffeine provides a powerful booster to repair and protect hair from further damage. Caffeine shampoo is an effective choice for those looking to remove product buildup without relying on synthetic chemicals, rebalance the pH levels of the hair and scalp, soften and smooth dry, frizzy hair and even act as a natural hair dye.

Caffeine's impact on hair loss and regrowth can only happen when applied topically. This can be done via shampoo, which results in the caffeine being absorbed into the scalp through the hair follicle. For optimal absorption, it should be left on for at least two minutes before rinsing. Unlike consuming excessive amounts of caffeine, using caffeine shampoo is completely safe and can be used on a daily basis.
