Strenuous Exercise May Cause Hair Loss – Expert

Excessive exercise places enormous energy demands on the body which may result in hair loss*, says leading global hair expert, Dr Adolf Klenk.

Klenk, who discovered 16 years ago that caffeine protects against hair loss*, said hair may come under intense stress during physical exertion. “During high-intensity exercise or sport, muscles consume a huge amount of energy, draining the rest of the body of energy, including the hair. Given that hair is a high-performance organ requiring lots of energy, this causes hair to suffer and may result in hair loss*. There is also an increased release of the male hormone testosterone which impacts on hair loss,” said Klenk.

To combat this, Klenk, head of German-based Dr Wolff Research, has developed a special caffeine-based shampoo, Alpecin Sport Caffeine Shampoo CTX. “This shampoo contains caffeine, taurine and special micronutrients including biotin, zinc, magnesium and calcium which stimulates the hair while supporting the metabolic processes needed for strong hair growth,” Klenk said. “Alpecin Sport Caffeine Shampoo CTX has been specially developed for active men who have an increased energy demand,” he added.
