Hair loss is not exclusively a male problem. During and after menopause, millions of women also suffer from a dwindling hair quantity. This is frequently due to decreasing oestrogen levels which previously protected women’s hair roots against the male hormone testosterone. After menopause, the share of oestrogen decreases and the impact of the male hormones increases. This change can have unexpected side effects: Women’s hair becomes thinner, falls out prematurely, the scalp becomes visible and the hairline recedes. But for many affected women, there is hope.
In collaboration with the dermatological institute of the University Clinic Jena, Dr. Wolff R&D has discovered properties of caffeine, which could help reduce this type of hair loss.
The Dr. Wolff laboratories developed a phyto-caffeine complex especially against hair loss in women after menopause, which contains caffeine, zinc and niacin as well as an active ingredient combination from phytoflavonoids of the soy plant and black cohosh (Cimicifuga).
