Chinese herbs have been used for centuries on their own and together with other alternative therapies such as acupuncture, acupressure and Ayurveda to prevent hair loss, regrow hair and restore the hair’s natural pigment.
Speaking of hair loss, we need to know that there are many causes leading to it, such as the genetic male pattern baldness and diseases affecting glands and hormones. Furthermore, lack of circulation to the scalp and vitamin deficiencies play a major role in hair health.
Certain herbs can help to bring the body into balance and are used for thinning hair treatment and as baldness cures. The first step towards hair restoration is through increasing the quality of the blood and circulation to the scalp. The key to limiting thinning hair and promoting hair regrowth is early intervention.
For those who have unsuccessfully used conventional hair restoration methods such as pharmaceutical drugs, laser treatments or surgery, therapies using Chinese herbs offer alternative options that may be helpful for hair restoration, reversing grey hair and overcoming health disorders resulting in successful hair replacement treatment.
What are some of the Chinese herbs commonly used in hair treatments?
1. He Shou Wu (Polygonum Multiflorum)
This herb has shown efficacy for hundreds of years in not only helping with hair restoration, but also for restoring grey hair to its original colour. It raises the level of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) that breaks down and clears out excessive hydrogen peroxide which cause hair colour to lighten. Moreover, it strengthens hair, builds the blood and reverses the process of aging throughout the body. It also normalise production of sebum oil on scalp and has great effect in alleviating dandruff problem.
2. Nu Zhen Zi (Ligustrum lucidum)
It improves circulation to the scalp and is considered a Yin kidney and liver tonic. In China it is said that this herb extends life and acts on the immune system as a blood tonic helping with hair restoration and hair loss prevention. This herb is great for regenerating a youthful sheen. It is also effective in the stimulation and promotion of blood circulation in the scalp and is often used to combat dandruff and oily scalp problem.
3. Dang Gui (Angelica Sinensis)
This precious herb is used for many causes, and one of its many uses is to prevent hair loss. Angelica sinensis contains phytoestrogens which inhibit the formation of DHT, a major cause of hair loss. Therefore angelica sinensis is very effective in reducing hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth.
Ginseng is well-known for its benefits and healing properties, and most effective for preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth as it contains all the necessary nutrients such as zinc, minerals, vitamin B and Ginsenosides. The Ginsenosides, in particular, directly enter the fibre of the hair and help to prevent hair problems such as thinning, greying and loss of hair.
5. Dan Shen (Salvia Miltiorrhiza)
It has been proven that Salvia could effectively promote hair growth and microcirculation in the skin thereby alleviating hair loss conditions like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, and alopecia universalis.
