Chinese practitioners have been using herbal hair care formulas for no less than 1,700 years.
Typically, these formulas contain acrid-flavored medicinals which move the qi and quicken the blood. This is based on the idea that the qi moves the blood and the hair is the surplus of the blood. Therefore, if the blood in the scalp is healthy, so will be the hair.
Within this formula, Dang Gui and Bai Zhi have been used for externally applied herbal hair care products in China for many centuries. When it comes to the beautification of the skin and hair, Bai Zhi is the most commonly used for external application.
Lu Hui is a more modern hair care ingredient. Research has shown that Lu Hui contains emodin glycosides. Other research has shown that Lu Hui has an exceptionally powerful ability to permeate the skin, thus giving the ability to reach deep layers of the skin. Since Lu Hui also contains saccharides, amino acids, vitamins, and trace minerals.
Gan Ye Ju is also a more modern hair care ingredient. Used in South America as well as grown commercially in China, it is reported to improve hair luster when applied externally.
Contains no animal products or mineral oil. No animal testing. This formula contains no Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS).
My Traditional Chinese medicine practitioner started me on this with some herbs to help with thinning hair. It has helped grow very fine new hairs over 4-5 months but my scalp doesn't itch, and hair has nice shine and body, plus I like the scent. Will continue to use.
Very nice shampoo
Love this shampoo. It is a conditioner and shampoo in one
