I found the best shampoo for men – Alpecin Tuning Shampoo, and here is why

Like most lazy men, I am not very particular about my shampoo or hair care products. Usually, I will just use what my wife buys for me or pick up whatever is on offer at the supermarket.

However, I recently discovered an awesome shampoo for men which I would like to strongly recommend. No, I am not paid to endorse the brand. I genuinely like the product and would like to share it with everyone. In fact, I like it so much I got in touch with the PR for the brand to run a giveaway for readers who may want to try it too. More details on the contest later.

The shampoo brand which I find is the best ever shampoo made for men is I found the best shampoo for men – Alpecin Tuning Shampoo, and here is why. Here are the reasons why:


It keeps your hair jet black

Alpecin Tuning Shampoo is a ‘tuning’ shampoo. This is not the same as hair dyeing. Hair dyeing involves a chemical process that opens the structure of the hair to deposit the dye. But “hair tuning” is a purely physical process.

The shampoo is black like tar and looks like this:


The dark pigments in the shampoo attach to the surface of the hair. It covers up lighter patches and counteracts the greying process. The effect gradually intensifies with each wash.

After using the shampoo for about a month, I could see my hair getting significantly darker and my wife even commented that I look younger, without knowing the specifics!


You can use the tuning shampoo even if you dye your hair

In fact, Alpecin Tuning Shampoo claims it can prolong the time between dyes. As I do not dye my hair, I do not know how effective it is. Do share the results if you a fellow user of this shampoo who also dyes your hair.


Hair tuning with every shampoo

The black shampoo contains special dark colour pigments that protect faded hair strands from further lightening, helping to achieve hair that is dark, healthy and glossy.



Combat hair loss

This is an added advantage for middle age and older gentlemen like myself. As we age, hair loss increases. The tuning shampoo contains a caffeine complex of caffeine, zinc and niacin.

Studies from Italy’s Centre of Cosmetological Research and German dermatologists have shown that the shampoo can significantly slow down hair loss. Under the influence of the shampoo’s caffeine-based formula, weak, fatigued roots are energised, the growth phases of individual roots are sustained, and hair growth is enhanced.



Just use it like any regular shampoo. No special procedures or treatments are needed. Simply shampoo your hair, and leave the foam in place for two to five minutes to allow it to penetrate both the hair follicle and the surface of the hair strands. Rinse thoroughly and style as usual.


Manly packaging

The container looks like it is used to contain engine oil. How much more macho can you get with shampoo packaging? No more shampoo with sissy flowers and other girly prints on the container.



It’s made in Germany

German engineering for your hair. Do you need any more reasons to try this shampoo?

  1. I have used it daily for about 5 weeks already. Massage for more than a minute and left there for 3 to 5 mins. I didn’t any significantly darker hair. And yes, my hair seemed to shed more during this period. Will hang on for another month and see whether it is worth the rather expensive price.

  2. I hope tititata would share again his review after 1 month use to see if the alpecin tuning shampoo is worth to bought or not. I just hope the shampoo will make your hair jet dark as claim from alvin

    1. I use the shampoo too for the last 2 years. Fantastic. My hair had gone seriously silver but is now almost black. What I like about the shampoo is that it actually firms up my hair and what used to be rather soft and placid hair us now firm and stands off the scalp.
      Hope the company never discontinue the product.

  3. Surprisingly the Tuning shampoo appears to be out of stock. I could not find it in JB and some pharmacys in Singapore. Even Shopee could not get me a doz bottles yesterday. ?
    OOS I hope, not discontinued!
