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 -Research 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).
Caffeine is known for its stimulating effects and in numerous studies Dr. Wolff found, that the substance also helps protect hair from the negative impact of testosterone which can help to reduce hair loss.
Hair loss can have a devastating effect on a woman’s confidence: in a study of 2,000 UK adults, 34 per cent of women felt the worst aspect of hair loss was “feeling less attractive than other women”, followed by “looking older” and “feeling insecure”.
The study also showed that women are far more worried about the perceptions of other women than the views of men. In years of research, Dr. Wolff-Research has discovered properties of caffeine which can help reduce this type of hair loss and developed a Phyto-Caffeine Complex to prevent testosterone from attacking the hair roots and restricting the supply of energy.
