    As a standard, I would avoid any proposed natural treatment for baldness, especially chinese herbs.

    Be warned that ‘natural’ is a term used to exploit vulnerable people seeking treatments with minimal side-effects, but almost all natural products you will find that claim to help with hairloss, will either be ineffective, or even worse, very dangerous to your health.

    There is one case study I have read about a few years back where a young man died from kidney failure after consuming Chinese herbs that claimed to cure baldness.

    Now, my only exception to the above rule is for a product called Saw Palmetto. This is a natural variant of an FDA approved product for Male Pattern Baldness called Propecia (Finasteride).

    This product was originally used to treat or prevent prostate cancer, but was found to have the side-effect of hair regrowth.

    Saw Palmetto was also clinically shown to have the same effect of benign prostate cancer, and it is indicative of also having a protective/regrowth effect on male pattern baldness, although this has not been conclusively proven as of yet.

    But if you want to go natural, go with Saw Palmetto which has an excellent safety profile.

    Better still, if I were you I would use both finasterside and minoxidil, but under the supervision of a GP.

    Whatever you do, avoid all the ‘natural’ snake oils on sale on the web claiming to cure baldness, because none of them do, but many of them can in fact harm your health.

    Do you want to try the Chinese Herbal Shampoo, Bawang Anti-fall and Renewal Shampoo. A number of friends have used the product and told me it prevents hairs from falling and makes the hair thicker.

    I have also seen the following video from YouTube. The product looks quite promising.

    The product contains Chinese herbs extracts which can restrain and balance the sebum, nourish hair follicles, strengthen the hair root to make hair stronger and prevent hair loss. Bawang is not available in all countries. You can find it at the ebay.
