Blogs – Chinese Herbs For Hair

Chinese herbal medicine is a powerful tool in the fight against hair loss, with different herbs being particularly useful for different properties.

We’ve highlighted the key ingredients combined for a complete treatment, starting with prevention of hair loss.

Here are 6 Chinese herbs which are crucial to a healthier scalp condition…

1) White Peony Root

Known as ‘Bai Shao Yao’, White Peony is a prized herbal ingredient across the East.

It is widely cultivated across China, with major production taking place in the Zhejiang, Anhui and Sichuan provinces.

This is an important element in the prevention of hair loss due to its ability to assist with the enrichment of blood.

Providing an increased circulation/flow helps boost your hair’s growth cycle, prolonging key stages which in-turn strengthen your follicle health.

2) Sweet Woodworm

A versatile component, this medicinal herb is prized for its anti-cancerous properties and bacteria killing ability. 

Many in the East believe Sweet Woodworm is one of the best ingredients to bring balance to the spirit, mind and body.

According to ancient legend, this was used as an important part of the path to a spring cleanse, so this is sure to work wonders for your hair!

3) Sophora Flavescens Root

The dried root of this herb has been thought to have a growth promoting effect, as scientific experiments showed it could positively influence the telogen-to-anagen phases of the hair growth cycle.
The result – a stronger head of hair with your hair follicles being protected from damage.
4) Laserwort Root
Also known as Fang Feng, this root is known for its positive effects on the dampness and ‘wind’ category.
Conditions that affect the surface of the body, including hair loss are targeted as part of the ‘external wind’.
Eastern legend believes that Fang Feng is one of the most powerful Chinese herbs to assist with the improvement of one’s scalp condition, naturally.
5) Gastrodia Root

Commonly known as Tian Ma, this herb is known for its ability as a hair growth activator.
Using this powerful ingredient will encourage therapeutic effects, including nourishment of the body and your hair.
This herb is a prized possession in the TCM world and for good reason.
6) Boneknit Root

Also referred to as Gu Sui Bu, Boneknit Root is known for its ability to assist with invigorating the blood.
It is also an important herb to help with stimulation of hair growth and promoting the mending of sinews/bones.
Gu Sui Bu also tonifies the Yang in the body to provide a balance to optimise health & wellbeing.
