The top-selling treatment for hair thinning in China last year was Da Fei Xin, a minoxidil solution made by a unit of Shanxi Zhendong Pharmaceutical, with a 23percent market share, reports Euromonitor.

LOreal ( OR:FP ), the worlds largest cosmetics maker, is trying to woo Chinese with products such as arginine lotions (touted to reduce fallout by strengthening the hair) and its Kerastase shampoo line (designed for thinning hair).

Cellmid, a drugmaker in Sydney, also plans to start selling a plant extract-based treatment in China this year.
