Mane Magic is a restorative tonic designed to encourage healthy blood flow to support strong, luscious and happy hair follicles.
Based on Chinese Medicine’s view of healthy blood flow “feeding” the skin, hair and nails, Mane Magic utilizes traditional “blood building” herbs that support hair, hormone, and adrenal health.
In the lens of TCM, hair is seen as an extension of the blood, and is often affected by occasional stress. Rather than acting as a magic bullet, this formula builds and nourishes over time to ensure blood and Qi is strong and healthy enough to “feed the follicles.”*
Not another hair vitamin
Our approach to formulation is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine’s view of ‘patterns of disharmony,’ and how these patterns may interact with normal hair growth, quality, and luster. In the lens of TCM, healthy hair goes hand in hand with healthy blood flow and hormones, all of which are related to the intake of ‘blood building’ greens, herbs, and quality proteins.
In line with this philosophy, there must be enough “blood” and “Qi” to not only “feed the follicles,” but to move normal blood flow to the scalp for optimal hair health. Mane Magic is a powerful blend of blood building herbs that support healthy circulation and invigorate Qi.*

Supporting herbs for a well-rounded formula
According to TCM, our ‘essence’ or sense of vitality is housed in the Kidney meridian, and the normal growth and development of healthy hair depends on proper functioning of the both the Kidney and Liver meridians. To bring it full circle, hair that feels full of life and shine is also correlated to our ‘essence’ or sense of vitality being full and robust. (However, TCM’s concept of the “Kidney meridian” is much different from the Western view of anatomy - which is why it’s singular and capitalized here).
This meridian refers to an entire organ system that works together to support healthy energy levels, including the adrenals and reproductive system. The Kidney “meridian” also includes the Kidney “Jing,” known as the inherited Qi or vital essence we get from our parents that is akin to a bank account of money. Overworking, occasional stress, poor diet and late nights are all examples of things that “cost” us extra Jing. Protecting your Kidney Jing by making healthy lifestyle choices supports your vitality, hair, teeth, bones, and longevity.
Not surprisingly, TCM’s view of the “Liver” differs too, as it encompasses everything from the smooth flow and healthy detoxification of hormones, to “storing” blood for menstruation. It all comes full circle as the Liver meridian is supported energetically by Kidney Jing. Most importantly, blood from the Liver meridian nourishes the hair follicle and the hair itself is seen as an extension of the blood. For the most complete formulation possible, Mane Magic also contains Liver and Kidney meridian supporting herbs to create a balanced blend from all angles.*
Timing is key
This formula supports the big picture of whole body health by aiding the many aspects involved in healthy hair and vitality, rather than taking a reductionist approach to surface issues.
Like most holistic tools that support the body from the ground up, change doesn’t always happen overnight (and including blood building foods like protein, beets, berries, kidney beans, and dark leafy greens can help). Of course, because everyone is different, results may vary and time is key. Mane Magic is most effective if taken for two or more months, with most noticing hair support around month three. At our current size, each bottle will last for 5-6 weeks.*
