Coffee to cure baldness

German medics arrived at the conclusion that consumption of large caffeine doses prevents baldness.

Male's hormone testosterone is responsible for baldness in men, meaning that the more testosterone a man as, the more prone he is to losing his hair. Head of the research team Professor Peter Elsner states that hormonal boldness could in fact be prevented by means of caffeine.

As a result of their extensive research studies, German scientists arrived at a fascinating conclusion! Apparently, claim the scientists, it is possible to prevent baldness at an early age by means of treating hair with products containing caffeine (for instance by rubbing a special solution into the scalp).

However, the scientific team advises coffee lovers against consuming their favorite beverage in excess to fight baldness. According to an expert-cosmetologist Adolf Klenka, “one would need to consume 60-80 cups of coffee per day for the caffeine to reach hair follicles.” Professor Elsner in turn notes that “even though a person would be willing to do just that for beauty’s sake, our research did not cover the way caffeine intake influences one’s scalp. We did prove however that caffeine should be used as an external substance that should be applied directly onto the scalp.”

According to him, those men who are genetically predisposed to baldness, should consider such “caffeine therapy” while they are still relatively young. German medics consider that rubbing coffee ground into the scalp is the most effective way to prevent baldness.
