The blend’s imperial herb is known as He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum). When translated, it means “the herb that turns Mr. Wu’s hair black”. Its main effects include strengthening Shen Jing (kidney essence) and Gan Xue (liver blood). This is mainly useful when treating hair loss, bad hair condition, or premature greying. It also Show Wu moisturises dry hair. Another herb contained in the blend, Shu Di Huang, strengthens the effect He Shou Wu has on hair nourishment.
