How Does Herbal Hair Work?

Blog – herbal hair work

Herbal Hair products are produced in China, manufactured by the Beijing Zhangguang 101 Science and Technology Company, a world-famous medicinal hair tonic brand.

Zhangguang 101 is the pioneer and leading brand in the hair regrowth industry in China for over 40 years.

They hold the longest development history, strongest influence, and largest market share in the East.

Our products have been re-branded for the Western market, with a new and improved advanced formula to help those suffering from a variety of hair loss conditions.

So, where did this all begin, and what is the science behind the success of Herbal Hair and Zhangguang 101?

Where it all started

The founding brand was innovated and developed in 1974 by medical practitioner, Dr Zhangguang Zhao.

His vision was to invent a medicine to help people suffering from hair loss with his knowledge of Chinese herbs for treatment, which he had learnt from his father, also a traditional Chinese doctor.

Dr Zhao then began his detailed research on a hair growth formula. This saw the birth of Zhangguang 101 products, an advanced range of tonics created with traditional Chinese herbs.

Between 1986 and 2003, Zhangguang 101 was being widely utilised at clinic level, with a 97.5% effective rate and 84.8% cure rate for hair loss conditions. The formula passed the relevant technical department assessment and received over 7 international awards for invention and technology.

Fast forward into the present day, the Herbal Hair product range has been expanded with growing success. This has led to more successful formulas being developed for those suffering from hair loss, thinning and scalp conditions.

How do the products work?

The Herbal Hair formula is refined from various precious Chinese herbs, such as Bai Shao Yao (White Peony Root), Dan Shen (Chinese Sage), Ren Shen (Ginseng), Gan Jiang (Ginger) and many others. The herbal formula not only helps regrow new hair, but also strengthens and nourishes the existing hair from future hair loss.

Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo – Advanced Formula (200ml)

This product is mainly designed to cleanse the scalp and hair follicle, preventing hair loss and encouraging healthy hair regrowth. This proven natural Chinese formula removes toxins, dandruff, itching and excessive hair oil from the hair follicle to prolong the hair growth cycle, preventing further hair loss.

This herbal formula not only helps re-grow new hair, but also strengthens and nourishes the existing hair from future hair loss.

Directions for use:

  • Wet hair with warm water and massage shampoo in gently
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water


For best results: Use shampoo twice a week

Tonics – Feed, Cleanse & Loss Prevention – Advanced Formula (120ml)

These products are mainly designed to cleanse the scalp, feed the hair follicle, and prevent future hair loss.

Directions for use:

  • Use 10ml of tonic once a day
  • Massage the tonic into the scalp
  • Comb hair to stimulate the hair follicle

For moderate conditions: Use 10ml of tonic once a day

For severe conditions: Use 20ml of tonic twice a day

The products are available in 120ml bottles or pack of 30 x 10ml for easier application.

As the natural hair cycle is around 3 months, it is fundamental that patients follow the instructions for 3 months to notice a remarkable difference. We recommended using 2/3 sessions over 9 months to achieve the desired results – depending on the hair and scalp condition.

We recommend combining the above products, depending on the hair type and hair loss, for the best results. We have devised a recommended treatment document, which can help with choosing the correct products.

For most cases, we recommend using the Follicle Feed Tonic, followed by the Prevention Tonic and lastly, the Cleanse Tonic.
