One Month Down With Noticiable Results
I'm 36 and was beginning to notice my hair getting grey scraggly strands as well as my hairline receding (more left than right) so I decided to get past the denial and look into natural hair supplements. I started with diet, a boatload of different hair products, and some dietary supplements containing Omega 3, 6, and 9. No results. After one month of trying this product my hair seems much softer and silkier. The grey/white strands are manageable like the rest of my hair and I'm actually noticing some new growth in the receding areas. No side effects that I'm aware of either. I have looked at some of the other reviews of this product and most are positive. There are a few negative ones so this might not work for everyone. There might be other dietary, health and genetic factors involved but and am very pleased. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars at this time is because I am only one month in. If the improvement continues over the next few months I will be elated.

and will update if things change.

Patient Shen Min Usage Works
It does take at least a yr to see improvement but I only take it
once a day. I have been so surprised, that I will now take 2/day. I
use it with rogaine and my temples have filled back in and my hair
is definitely thicker. It is softer and as an African American, it
has loosened my curls so that my hair looks like I have a chemical
process in it. I dont! I finally love my hair. It doesnt grow
quicker, but its no longer falling out! BE PATIENT, it actually
helps in one way or another.

Not Such A Good Thing
I took this product for approx a month. I didnt follow the exact
instructions to where you take 2 pills a day. I just took one a day
on an empty stomach. Which they do say that on the bottle to take
the pills on an empty stomach. Anyways after a month of taking
these lil things. I find that it made my situation WORSE. My hair
started falling out more than what it was already. I can run my
hands through my hair and feel how much thinner it feels now.
Within a week a had a HUGE hairball from all the shedding hairs. I
wouldnt swear to this but this pill has some sideeffects like
depression, loss of sex drive.. Id save your money and what hair
you have left do not buy this!!

Incredible But True: Shame On The Drug Companies
I started losing my hair at the crown and top of my head at about
34 years of age, in 1994. The loss led to large bald spot at the
top of my head followed by receding hair line in front and just a
tuft of hair in the center front. I was able to avert the hair loss
using a botanical scalp treating shampoo and conditioner, but the
majority of the top of my head remained bald with only light peach
fuzz and blonde juvenile shoots. In May of 2007 I started using the
Shen Min DHT Blocker. By the end of June it was clear that new
growth was arriving; not just in thin blonde peach fuzz, but long
shafted mature hair. Even with the hot and sweaty conditions of my
job thru the summer, it became obvious that the shedding phase had
stopped, and the growing phase of the hairs lying dormant in my
scalp for over ten years was thriving! The new growth thru the fall
and winter has increased, and the density of the hairs growing in
my "bald spot" continues to increase. Its almost a daily
phenomenon to look at my head with a mirror and watch the new hairs
not only come in, but come in strong and now at the same dark brown
color as the rest of the head. Im in my ninth bottle of the more
potent 325mg. blend, and would like to say to those skeptical, to
give this alot of time. It takes years to grow bald as people
recognize you, why shouldnt it take as long to grow back? However,
as with any nutracuetical, the effectiveness of a product is
determined by your bodys personal toxicity level, which can hinder
the absorption of any nutrient into the bloodstream via the colon.
Consider altering your diet to whole food supplememts, increasing
dietary fiber to assist removal of toxins, take a liquid plant
sourced mineral and vitamin supplement to effect a synergy with the
Fo-ti herb and enhance absorption and accelerate results. I will
stick with this product for as many months or years as it takes to
regrow every last hair that disappeared, and then if Shen Min is
still in business, continue to use this product for the many other
therapeutic benefits of the tree root, which Hasnt even been
touched on yet! I have photos, but dont have the time and savvy to
upload them to you. Thank-you so much for providing a product from
the wisdom of the Japanese that is changing my life, and making me
look younger every day!

procerin, and order He Shou Wu directly from the chinese herb.Its
been over 1.5 month and Im starting to see some new hair growing
in my bald spot and my frontal hair line.Nothing have ever grown in
these area for alomst several year now. I was norwood, 2a going to
3.Now Im starting to see some new hair, but I havent grown it
long to see if it will.I will post again in 3-4 month time to tell
you all, wether these new hair in the bald spot are growing like

I Don't Know
I bought this item to test out whether it works, and as of right
now i dont really see much of a change. Although the bottled did
say take 3 months of treatment to see results, with the pricing of
one months supply (1 container) I really dont think Im willing
to risk that much money for something that hardly showed even the
slightest result of improvement. So try at your own risk.
