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 Fast results I purchase Fotihair. I started taken them immediately. I usually wash my hair every week and end up with a large amount of hair. Well let me share with you the last two washes went well more like 4x less hair loss. I have only been taking FotiHair for TWO WEEKS! Talk about fast results. I suffer from lower back pain, so far little to no change yet( some reviews shared that Fotihair helped with lower back pain)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me This formula didn't work for my constitution, unfortunately. It made my already weak (cold) digestion much worse, to the point where after a week of taking it I couldn't eat anything without feeling ill afterward. It caused me intense nausea and diarrhea primarily. I took it twice a day. I'm going back to HairVive, which didn't bother my stomach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Falling Hairs My wife would dread cleaning the shower because after every time I washed my hair, I'd have lots of hairs fall out. After taking FotiHair for a few months, I barely have any hair fall. Seriously, like from 50 hairs to maybe 2 little ones. That's a huge difference. I also notice my bald spot has filled in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelled hair growth! I started using this after medicine I was given caused my hair to fall out in clumps. After 6 months it looked like 2 years worthy of growth plus the bald spots regrew new hair. I went from almost bald to shoulder length hair in about 6 months. Amazing !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years and recently switched over to the Hairvive brand for its higher potency. I've not seen either effect my sparsely graying hairs, thus the main reason why I bought it, but it’s worked well in other ways. The two most noticeable changes; it strengthened my nails, regulates bowel movements and it may help with keeping my youthful looks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick hair! After menopause my hair was coming out in handfuls. I developed balding spots at my temples. I have been using FotiHair for several years on the recommendation of my Aunt. My hair doesn't fall out like it was previously. Each time I go to the hairdresser she remarks on how thick my hair is. I will continue to use FotiHair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many other benefits too! I bought this for my graying hair---but haven't seen much of a difference. However, my hair is growing much faster---which I am happy about. This formulation tonifies the liver and kidneys ----maybe that is why I am falling asleep faster and not waking up during the night! So I am continuing to take this for more added benefits. Great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works I’ve been taking this twice a day for just under a month now, combined with Qi and Liver support, and my hair has been growing back like crazy! I’m hopeful that another month or two will take these new baby hairs back to my full head of hair.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK Before purchase, the reviews I read were - "Stops (or slows) hair loss and new hair growth is no longer gray." Neither is true for me. I have been on this 3 months now. That should be enough time to begin to see results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product! I recently bought and started using FotiHair. I take the recommended dose on the bottle 1-2 times a day. I tried FotiHair because my hair was getting thin and limp. Now my hair is fuller and softer. I am very happy with this product and will continue to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from starting to show I only remember to take this 2 times a day, instead of the recommended 3 times of 6 pills each time. I'm almost done with one bottle so far with this strategy, and I'm starting to notice my hair falling out less, and more hair coming in! In spite of under dozing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strengthens my hair! I bought this only because active herb was out of Hairvive and I am so glad I did . This product has made my hair stronger and the gray is not as stark a it used to be . I am seeing natural shades of my original hair color in more of my hair the longer I use this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product for Hair Loss I've been using FotiHair for less than 2 months. So far, my hair loss is not as bad as 2 months ago. I was having a hormonal issue and experience a terrible hair loss. I was looking online on how to treat hair loss naturally and my search directed me to this site. I noticed that my hair shedding is minimal now. I think I still need 2 more months before I can see great results and hopefully, my hair shedding will completely stop.

    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.
