is an old story which describes the discovery of Polygonum multiflorum. There was a poor fellow
living alone in a forested area of China. He had been born with a weak
constitution. Due to his chronic frailty, he had never been able to marry and had
long since given up on the prospect. One day he was collecting wood in the
forest when he observed a pair of vines entwined. He thought to himself that
they appeared to be making love, and in a whimsical mood dug up the root of the
plant, which he took back to his cottage. There he cooked the tuber in the
fashion of an herb tea and consumed it over a period of time. To his surprise,
he started to feel an unknown vitality flowing through his veins and after a
little while he noticed certain urges starting to develop. Various versions of
the story go on to describe various degrees of incredible virility as it
developed in this previously hapless guy. He soon found a lovely young wife and
had several children. Furthermore, “his gray hair turned from white to
black and his loose teeth became firm,” according to the legend. He took
on the name “Old Black Hair,” or He Shou Wu. His sons later named the herb
He Shou Wu (Old Black Hair), after their father. Since
that discovery of the herbs influence on hair, it has been used by tens of
millions of people in Asia to nurture healthy, beautiful hair.
