The KÉRATENE® alphactive Anti Hair Loss Organic Shampoo is the essential first step in the fight against excessive hair fall and incipient hair thinning. KÉRATENE® alphactive helps control the formation of the male-pattern hair thinning caused by androgen hormones and can be used as maintenance therapy in clinical cases of FUE/FUT hair transplant surgery, to help preserve the trichological density of the existing hair follicles.
Its active substances prepare the skin for the application of a more concentrated scalp therapy from the KÉRATENE® alphactive series.

The KÉRATENE® alphactive Shampoo is suitable as sustaining therapy for the preservation of the trichological density for NW I, NW II, Ludwig I and Ludwig II cases.

Results may vary from person to person, according to personal life style, health condition and other factors. Therapeutically compatible with other KÉRATENE® alphactive products.

KÉRATENE® alphactive may be used in combination with Finasteride or other (amino)minoxidil- or aminexil-based products, with restrictions.
Restrictions of use
KÉRATENE® alphactive should be used as a sole therapy for hair loss and should not be combined with other hair loss products designed for topical application.
In order to avoid unnecessary dermatological stress, KÉRATENE® alphactive must be used only after minimum 24 hours from the application of other hair loss products.
Combined application of KÉRATENE® alphactive with topical Finasteride or other (amino)minoxidil or aminexil-based products, consecutive or otherwise simultaneous, is not indicated and may lead to dermatological irritation and even to chemical shock, resulting in aggressive hair loss.
Chemical shock by mixed therapy
KÉRATENE® alphactive has an impeccable record track in the long-term use as individual hair & scalp therapy.
Whenever a previous anti hair loss treatment had been used and then directly and / or completely stopped, or KÉRATENE® alphactive was introduced without any time lapse over the application of other products, chemical shock may be potentially possible.
By long-term use, specific hair loss therapies may induce sudden loss of hair when the treatment is suddenly interrupted.
In order to avoid such reactions, do not stop the treatment directly but rather reduce or limit the usage of the substance in/to a reasonable period of time.
In order to avoid massive hair fall, before beginning the treatment with another hair loss product, allow at least three weeks recovery time.
KÉRATENE® alphactive is not compatible with any products based on (amino)-minoxidil, when used at the same time.
By normal and correct use, no noticeable side effects have been reported.
Only in less than 0.5% of the users, transient paresthesia in the forehead (tingling of the skin) has been reported.
Transient paresthesia may occur in the first hour after application and may last up to 7 hours. This side effect is normal and it is caused by the catalyzing reactions that take place in the dermal layers.
By normal and correct use, no known adverse reactions have been reported.
Should any adverse reactions occur within 15 minutes from the application, rinse the product with plenty of lukewarm water. Verify whether the concentration grade of the product is suitable for your age group.
If adverse reactions occur and persist longer than 5 hours after application, interrupt the treatment and consult your GP.
