When we think of hair loss as a cosmetic or medical problem, most often the image that comes to mind is a bald man, sometimes older, but often younger to show that many are susceptible. However, a surprising number of women, especially in China, have encountered hair thinning or loss and are looking for ways to slow or stop the process.

Origin Herbal Hair Treatment is now offering a possible solution, from their new location across from the north gate of the Workers’ Stadium. Founder Cheah Bee Choo started the company while working in a Singapore hair salon, and saw the effect that shampoos and other hair products loaded with chemicals were having on customers. She began formulating her own products using only natural ingredients, she told the Beijinger, and started to see positive results. The treatment relies on deep cleaning of the hair follicles and scalp, and avoiding harmful chemicals.

Not a traditional styling salon, Origin seeks to help those facing hair loss or thinning through a series of treatments. Cheah said that her products also rely on established traditional Chinese medical principles to reduce both thinning and loss. They also have natural methods to address gray hair and scalp issues such as dandruff.

The salon is set up to handle both Chinese and foreign clients. Foreign clients have different needs from those from Beijiing, including loss of color, and Origin can also help to handle them, local owner Sylvia Wei said.
