  • Male/Female Pattern Hair Loss – Androgenetic Alopecia

    post 1


    post 2

    Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL) or Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) are characterised by a receding hairline and thinning crown. Hair follicles in the temple and mid-anterior part of the scalp tend to be most commonly affected.

    Stage I-III: Slight recession in the frontal and temporal region. Hairlines become visible and some local hair loss in the crown. Stage IV-V: Advanced hair loss on the crown and frontal region. Seen from above, the area still having hair looks like a horseshoe. Stage VI: The depth of the frontal and crown areas has expanded sideward and backwards.

    Female Pattern Hair Loss

    Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) or Female Pattern Baldness (FPB) is characterised by thinning of hair in the front/top areas of the scalp.

    Stage I: It shows slight hair loss in the crown. Stage II: Advanced hair loss in the same area. Stage III: Hair loss in the front temporal line starts. Stage IV: It shows a continuation of that diffuse hair loss and front temporal recession.Stage V: There is complete hair loss similar to male pattern baldness.

    Major Reason For Androgenetic Hair Loss - Genes

    Androgenetic hair thinning or baldness is due to the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) acting on genetically-susceptible hair follicles in the scalp. Testosterone converts to DHT with the aid of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. DHT then binds to receptors on hair follicles obstructing the blood supply to the hair follicle thus preventing absorption of essential nutrients.

    Scientists now know that DHT shrinks hair follicles through a process called miniaturization that eventually results in follicle death and hair loss. Without adequate nutrition reaching the follicles, the growth (Anagen) phase of the hair cycle shortens and the rest (Telogen) phase lengthens, so that with each new cycle the hair shaft becomes progressively smaller. The process of testosterone converting to DHT, which then harms hair follicles, occurs in both men and women. In most cases of hair loss, miniaturization is the primary cause.

    How Do Herbal Treatments Activate Hair Follicles?

    DELETE: The process of miniaturization is where hair follicles become progressively smaller (the follicles shrink), deteriorate and eventually disappear.

    101 Hair Products help to reverse miniaturization and re-grow hair naturally through a totally non-invasive process called Herbal Follicular Activation (HFA). This involves both home use and in-clinical treatments to firstly stop abnormal/excessive hair loss (note that we normally lose 50-100 hairs per day), clean and unblock the scalp pores thus optimizing the environment for new hair growth, then activate and nourish hair follicles thus reversing miniaturization.

    HFA stimulates the function of the hair germ cell and provides it with optimum nutrition. All our tonics have a special ‘targeting technology’ that direct the key hair regrowth ingredients to the most affected areas. Also HFA effectivelycontrols the production of the 5 alpha reductase enzyme at the follicle thus reducing the amount of DHT acting on genetically sensitive scalp hair follicles.

    Herbal Follicular Activation activates and nourishes hair follicles thus reversing miniaturization.

    In addition, Herbal Follicular Activation helps to: reduce scalp sebaceous oil gland secretion, decrease scalp and hair follicle inflammation, support the body’s natural hormonal balance as well as other important physiological functions, improve the internal and external environment of the hair follicle and promote ideal scalp pH balance.

    Therefore, Herbal Follicular Activation ‘wakes up’ dormant hair follicles by providing more oxygen and essential nutrients to the follicle base, creating ideal conditions for new hair growth. Herbal Follicular Activation is a revolutionary process unique to the 101 Hair Product line that is very effective in growing new hair for people.

    How does our ancient Chinese 101 Herbal Formula treat hair loss and improve general health (endocrine, emotional disorders etc)?

    This powerful formula is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to promote normal growth and function of hair, assist in the management of baldness, hair loss, hair thinning and to assist hair growth. Additionally, it tonifies the blood, liver and kidney (according to TCM organ function). Further, it blackens grey hair, strengthens bones, improves digestion and absorption of food (thus increasing nutrients available for the body and the hair follicles), promotes restful sleep and prolongs life.


    Herbal Follicular Activation promotes new hair growth. Both the new and existing hair become thicker, shinier, darker in colour and stand more erect producing fuller and healthier looking hair.

    Herbal Follicular Activation also helps to reduce sensitivity of the hair follicle to DHT through the action of certain key herbal ingredients.

    Why are our herbal treatments special and safe? 

    We can achieve visible natural hair regrowth within just two months of starting treatment. Regular home treatment, combined with our advanced in-clinic hair and scalp treatments, abnormal/excessive hair loss will stop, you will have a clean and healthy scalp free of oil, dandruff, dead skin cells and dried sebum. Additionally, we will reverse pore blockage and miniaturization of the hair follicle and promote ideal scalp pH balance.

    Pharmaceutical hair loss treatments can result in serious health problems. But our multi-therapeutic and award winning natural products are very effective and very safe. The Hair Formula (tablets taken internally) that we use is made from natural herbs and is Australian TGA approved. In regards to our Hair Tonic Series (applied externally), no major side effects have ever been reported after 40 years of use internationally and 20 years use within Australia. Because Androgenetic Alopecia requires long term treatment, a natural approach in regards to treatment is obviously a safer option.


    From the above photo comparison we can see that the image on the right (“After” photo) shows an increased amount of hair. Also the new hair and existing hair is thicker, shinier, darker in colour and standing more erect than before treatment commenced.

  • Summary of Dr Zhou’s Speech At Australia 101 Hair Conference Tour, 2005

    Mel 006Ladies and Gentlemen, Colleagues and guests,

    As chairman of Beijing 101 group, China, I feel extremely honorable to participate in this medical exchange conference. As a renowned hair growth product manufacturer in China, 101 group has helped numerous hair loss suffers easing their worries all over the world in the past. Today, our 101 people and I come to Australia with passion. We wish to have excellent exchange with all of you. We also want to take this opportunity to let people all over the world know a little more about 101 Zhang Guang group and our 101 hair growth products. So more and more people can be benefit from this. At the same time, we come here with a humble heart. We sincerely wish to have academic exchange and experience sharing with all the experts in this field. We believe this conference can be an academic exchange platform, so we can learn more and make more friends in the Traditional Chinese Medicine field.

    30 years ago, some hair loss villagers I knew took extreme measures by committing suicide. That was the driving force for me to invent the 101 medicine. My father was a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor. I learned much knowledge with regard to hair loss treatment by utilising many different Chinese medicinal plants. From 1968, I started to study many medicines that can be used to treat hair loss.

    In 1974, after more than one hundred times clinical trials, I succeeded finally. In memory of those one hundred failures, I named this herbal lotion the “101 lotion” (later to be named as 101 Hair Re-growth Tonic). It has a 97.5% effective rate and 84.8% cure rate to hair loss condition. It has passed all the relevant technical department assessments. In order to help more hair loss suffers, I started to manufacture more 101 products and built two 101 factories in He Nan province and Beijing in 1987. In January 1990, 101 passed China’s Health Ministry assessment. It became the first special type of cosmetic hair care products in China.

    We now have more than over 2000 101 franchisee stores in China’s 31 provinces, municipalities, auto-administration region, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. We also have many 101 outlets in Japan, Canada, Pakistan, Singapore and in particularly in Australia.

    Although 101 doesn’t have a long history, it has already become a top competitor among the hair care, hair re-growth industry in China and even on globe scale. 101 Hair Tonics have won 13 international awards consecutively. This outstanding achievement has been recognized by the Chinese and international community. Among all the Chinese hair growth products, 101 was the only one to be chosen as a gift to be presented to visiting heads of foreign states.

    Apart from excellence in its products and commercial sales, the 101 group is also committed to public and social welfare programs. We have helped to build primary schools in China, helped poor students to go to school, and donated funds for disaster relief and social welfare purposes.

    We are still at rapid growing stage. While we have accumulated some valuable experience in the process, many things still need to be done. In term of products development, we are willing to have more academic exchange with experts all over the world so we can further improve our products. In terms of product promotion and sales, we are also willing to learn more about advanced sale models, methods, and experience. Finally, may I offer a warm invitation to all the experts in this field, hair loss suffers all over the world to visit our 101 group head office in China.

    Thank you very much.


    Two questions were answered by Dr Zhao:

    A         Late 80s - ZhangGuang 101 was popular in Japan.

    101 was very popular in Japan in the late 1980’s. This success was largely due to China’s President, Deng Xiao Ping, giving a national gift of 101 Hair Products to Japan’s president Mr Zhong Gen to try it himself. The Japanese media covered president Zhong Gen’s hair improvement over the following months and consequently 101 became very popular in Japan.

    B         Dr. Zhao’s secret on his own hair protection

    Dr Zhao is 65 years old but his hair is still thick, black and shiny. Not many people believe his hair is real unless they meet him in person. Even our own staff in Melbourne wanted to test the authenticity of Dr Zhao’s hair. When he toured Australia last year, our staff used a special instrument to check whether his hair was real. They discovered that Dr Zhao did not even dye his hair. The hair doctor revealed his secrets of maintaining thick and shining hair as follows:

    l   Sleep for a maximum number of hours possible

    l   Comb hair often

    l   Eat more white radish

    l   Use 101 Hair Prevention Tonic and 101 Hair Formula Tablets.

  • 101 Taxus Pillowcase

    101 Taxus Pillowcase

    101 Taxus Pillowcase

    Taxus or Yew is a rare and endangered plant species that has been used medicinally around the world for centuries. The Taxus Pillowcase contains honeysuckle, chrysanthemum, lavender and other plants with healing qualities. This pillowcase helps improve mental disorders, sleep, respiratory function and mental clarity. It also lowers blood lipids and blood pressure and slows aging.

    Scents cause a series of physiological and psychological reactions by stimulating the olfactory system. They can directly promote or inhibit the excitatory functions of the nervous system and thus treat disease. In 1991, U.S. scientists Reichard Asel and Linda Buck discovered olfactory receptor genes proving that aromas could influence health. For this breakthrough, they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Numerous studies have found similarly findings, that aromas play a crucial role in well-being.

    The aromatherapy of the 101 Taxus Pillowcase is a brand new drug-free approach to insomnia with implications for hair loss sufferers. Dr Zhao from the 101 Hair Company in Beijing, found that 18% of hair loss patients in his clinical practice suffered from insomnia. He found that the branches and leaves of yews contained yiew, bioflavonoid and taxine, all of which produce aromas that help improve insomnia. In 2007, Dr Zhao and a team of experts from the Beijing 101 Hair Research Institute conducted a study on the effects of Taxus in over a thousand men suffering Sleep Metabolic Syndrome. The study concluded that nearly all participants (all except 18) experienced improvement in their sleep. Furthermore, their snoring and neck pain completely disappeared and for some, the grey hair on their head turned black! The study results also showed that the participant’s wives who slept beside the Taxus Pillowcase also benefited; they too experienced less insomnia and their hypertension improved significantly.

    Wangjing Hospital in China conducted a 4-week observation of 92 people (a combination of middle-aged and old) who were not yet suffering hair loss but did have hypertension. After just one month, the amazing Taxus Pillowcase reduced the blood pressure for all 92 study participants!

    Yew has been recognized by medical science as a very effective anti-cancer treatment. It is considered a ‘pacilitaxel’ which basically means it prevents the division of cells and thus is a very effective anti-cancer treatment. Yews bioflavonoids are a natural anti-oxidative and anti-aging substance. Through respiration and skin absorption, these bioflavonoids can help to prevent cholesterol build up in the blood vessels and therefore reduce the occurrence of cardio-cerebrovascular diseases. It also protects cellular tissue and improves immunity via the elimination of free radicals.

    Researchers at The Northwest Agriculture and Forestry Science and Technology University and the Fourth Military Medical University, both located in China, found that daily exposure to Taxus reduced hypertension in rats. The anti-hypertensive effects of Taxus proved to be more effective than anti-hypertensive prescription medication.

    Lastly, The Taxus Pillowcase, through the innovative combination of Chinese medicine and modern technology, also has extraordinary effects on high blood sugar, neck pain, frequent urination, urgent urination, blurred vision, rhinitis and snoring.

  • Could Parasites and Fungi Be Causing Your Hair Loss?

    Invasive organism such as parasites and fungi can cause hair loss. Both of these survive on the same food that you eat. This means that if you are infected with one of these organisms your body could lose nutrients and become undernourished. When we become nutrient deficient our bodies always prioritize by sending nutrients to vital organs such as the brain and heart. As a result, hair follicles receive less nourishment and begin to deteriorate. In addition, parasites and fungi release waste products causing our bodies’ internal environment to become overly acidic. This acidity often results in poor hair health. Continue reading

  • Does the 101 Hair formula Tablet Prolong Longevity??

    How this formula works ?

    According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the health of the kidney and liver play a large role in the growth and maintenance of hair. The kidney controls the health of bones and the vital essence or Qi (vital life- force energy). The liver governs the health of the muscles and stores blood.

    In TCM, the hair is nourished by the blood. If the vital essence and blood are deficient, hair loss and baldness will occur. Early in life, the kidney and liver function optimally and the individual appears to have a rich and lustrous head of hair. With no stress or worry, the individual is able to keep his/her hair. However, over time, stress and negative emotions can reduce the vital essence and the functioning of the liver and kidney causing the hair to fall out. Continue reading
