How Do Chinese Herbs Stop Hair Loss?


So – you’re probably wondering, how do a couple of herbs transform my scalp condition and prevent hair loss?

Great question, we’d be asking the same in your position!

Let us dive into how traditional Chinese herbs can have a big impact on your hair loss journey, for the better…

Powerful Properties

The use of herbs goes back centuries – the third century BCE to be precise.

Several ancient formulas documented from this era are still used today to treat various illnesses and symptoms, including hair loss.

The great thing about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)? There are significantly less side effects when compared to Western Medicine!

Certain herbs have specific properties which make them very effective to treat a thinning scalp:

White Peony (Bai Shao Yao)

Known to assist with the enrichment of the blood, Dried White Peony is an important ingredient in our Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo.

Why… you ask?

This powerful herb is known to assist with the enrichment of the blood and circulation.

When it comes to your scalp, it’s important to regulate this to take care of your hair.

Blood circulation ensures that essential nutrients and oxygen are delivered to the hair follicles on your scalp to stay healthy.

The flow of blood can also have a positive influence on the Anagen Phase of the Hair Growth Cycle.

Scientific tests have shown that an increase in blood flow is linked to decreased hair loss.

Ginger Root (Gao Liang Jiang)

Native to Thailand and parts of Southeast Asia, this herb is perfect for hair loss due to its ability to keep skin and hair healthy. 

The roots and rhizomes are used in TCM for its variety of health benefits.

Known to balance the body’s QI (balance & vitality), Gao Liang Jiang is a fantastic herb for preventing hair loss and promoting great health.

Ginseng (Ren Shen)

With so much going on in the world today, it’s difficult to not get sucked into stressful situations.

How we deal with stress can differ from person to person, but it’s never a pleasant experience.

Some forms of stress can cause hair loss, therefore it’s important to manage this where possible.  

Ginseng has been known to improve mood and reduce stress, making it a crucial tool in the battle against hair loss.

Red Sage (Dan Shen)

A dried root very popular in the East, Red Sage is known for its ability to widen the blood vessels and improve circulation.

Similar to White Peony, this ingredient is partnered with the above herbs to create our advanced formula, ready to tackle hair loss.


Now that you’ve got a better understanding of how Chinese herbs can be a natural aid for hair loss, you’re ready to take the next step!

Luckily, hair is one of the few tissues in the body which can replenish over time, but only with the right solutions. Click here to view the solutions available to start your journey to a stronger head of hair.
