What does it do?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, He Shou Wu, in its processed form, nourishes the liver and kidney which is the source for Blood and Essence, respectively. The Liver Blood nourishes the head, scalp, and hair. The Kidney essence nourishes the bone marrow and bones, replenishes semen, and controls the aging process. He Shou Wu may support hair growth, support hair original color, and support bones and muscles associated with aging.

In addition to He Shou Wu, Shou Wu Pian (Wan) contains a blend of 12 additional herbs. This formulation is used to further enhance the action of He Shou Wu because He Shou Wu as a single herb often does not produce the optimal results. The same formula has been used by the noble class in China for vitality and longevity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! My hair started graying when I was in my early twenties. Overtime white hair took over to the point of being almost unable to find brown hairs, which is my natural color. I started taking FotiHair about 2 years ago. In about 2 months I started seeing lots of brown hair and new hair growing on my hairline. The amount of brown hair I got thanks to SHOU WU PIAN is significant and easily visible. Needles to say, I will continue using it. The westernized name FotiHair is a bit misleading, especially considering the MANY health benefits of this herb compound. Advertising strategies, maybe?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product which has really helped I have been using this product for 6 months now. I take 8 pills every morning when I wake and 8 pills just before I go to bed. Before I started taking it, I had very little hair on the top of my head and what hair I had was thin with scalp easily showing through. In addition, the hair on the sides was noticeably grey. My hair is now much thicker, with no bald spot at all, though the hair in the very center of my head is a little on the thin side but very noticeably thicker. The grey is almost completely gone. Everyone says I look 10 years younger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results Came Fast! I've been on Shou Wu Pian for about 2 and a half weeks now and I have seen noticeable difference!! I started loosing my hair after high school and I'm now 22. My hair hasn't been growing at all and started getting patchy. In 3 weeks my sides have started filling in getting thicker, and I know it works because I'm hearing from other people "wow your hair is looking thicke" and it has given me such a boost in confidence. I used rogaine for about 6 months and this foti has given me the results I've been wanting in just weeks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less Hair falling out and more hair growing... After taking this for one month - 5 pills first thing in the morning on an empty stomach - I noticed no hair falling on my yoga mat during class :). My hair had been shedding for 5 years and for 5 years I had hair falling out during yoga. After about 3-4 months, I notice a lot more hair growing on my head and much less is falling out all day long. The hair fall slowly improved over time and it's still improving. I'm so happy. Even my teenage daughter says I have a lot more hair on my head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hair growth, I have been taking these for my hair along with HAIR VIVE. I have seen my hair grow, a lot of baby hair. I have frontal fibrosing ALOPECIA I have decided to go the herbal route. It has work for me been on this for about a year now. I also seen my hair color change a bit. I would recommend these products!:)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing positive to say I took this for two months. During that time I did not change anything else in my life: diet, exercise, etc. I wanted everything else to be constant, as it was prior to taking the product. I took it hoping for some hair growth, and at the very least, that my hair would stop falling out. Actually, my hair started falling out more. Not sure if this was due to liver activity from the product or coincidence. I did not notice any improved health benefits whatsoever. It may work for some but it did nothing positive to impact my health.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from While it's related to hair not sure where the foti means This is a wonderful product. I have been taking it for close to a year and even though I am in my 70's I have no gray ha.While I am a natural blonde and had little gray in my hair before starting the product, the color of my hair is much more golden and is brighter now that I am taking FotiHair.I take it twice a day as directed. I also have noticed that my hair is thicker..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FotiHair rates as high as HairVive! I recently reviewed HairVive as an excellent product. I purchased both HairVive & FotiHair because they both contain the same main herb "He Shou Wu," & I wanted to compare results. They're both very good and started returning hair my hair to its natural color (dark brown in my case, which I haven't seen in more than 10 yrs). In both cases the process is not linear as some of the color washes out with shampooing but returns again with continued use, and fades less with each washing as you move forward. They both also give much more body to my hair, so it doesn't look weak and lifeless. The main difference I noted is that FotiHair gives my hair a lighter shade of brown with a slight tinge of red or blond or both, while HairVive gives my hair a darker shade of brown with tinges of black. In both cases, the coloration is not uniform so in neither case does my hair look like I just dipped it in a vat of dye. I still have a patch of "grey" on my right forehead and along my ears, but even that grey is darker than it was before starting the herb regimen. Take your pick, they're both GREAT!

    What is the dosage for 3-6 years old kids?

    Asked by: Someone
    Hi, Thanks for the question. The application of Shou Wu Pian is not what a kid would be concerned so we do not suggest kids to take it. But if a kid of 3-6 years old needs to take it, the dose would be reduced by weight proportion to adults.

    What is the difference between this FotiHair and HairVive -- how should we select? I have white/grey hair (in my early 60s) and hair is like straw.

    Asked by: moon510
    Thanks for the question. Both are similar in function and popular with our customers. Which one to choose is more a personal preference.
