My journey to battling hair loss!
Ronnie Pey, 58 years old
Ronnie Pey has been troubled by excessive hair loss and receding hairline since his thirties. He first noticed hair loss along his forehead and crown area, but did not pay much attention, thinking it was simply a passing phase. Over the years, the problem got worse and the balding area became larger and more obvious.
Friends and colleagues started commenting about his glaring crown and that he looked much older than his age. Feeling dejected, he started seeking relief to his problem and recounted, "Initially I experimented with hair care products and later hair loss treatment services, which were often expensive and offered no help. Some even made matters worse, causing my scalp to be sensitive and itchy."
"I was close to give up until I was introduced to AFC Japan," said Ronnie. A scalp analysis revealed that Ronnie had oily scalp which clogged his hair follicles, a common symptom in Singapore's climate. Hairs were unable to grow and were weak and thin which fall or break easily. This was made worse by poor dietary habits.
Ronnie was introduced to AFC King Konboo, the revolutionary clinically proven all-natural hair loss treatment system complete with Shampoo and Essence.
"I fell in love with King Konboo instantly. I experience lesser hair fall, and my hair feels fuller and thicker from the first application. My scalp and hair feel thoroughly cleansed and refreshed throughout the day. The comprehensive system includes an all-natural hair supplement which provides me with essential nutrients encouraging hair growth while supporting men's health. This allows me to address my hair concerns both internally and externally," Ronnie shared with delight.
In 1 month's time, Ronnie experienced significant improvements. His scalp was less oily, follicles were less clogged and showed signs of new hair growth.
After 4 months of using King Konboo, Ronnie said with joy, "My hair is growing thicker and fuller! Even my friends noticed the difference. Today I am a happy man, not only I look younger, I am able to enjoy a confident work and social life."
Hair Growth Cycle
Understanding how your hair grows will help you choose the right hair care regime for healthy and fuller hair.
Hair follicles grow in repeated cycles. Existing hair follicles undergo phases of Growth (anagen), Transitional (catagen) and Rest (telogen).
• Growth Phase (Anagen Phase)
Approximately 80-90% of your hair is in the growing phase, which varies from two to six years. Hair grows approximately 1cm for every 28 days. During this phrase, hair bulb produces hair pigments, and blood supplies nutrients and minerals to hair follicles for hair growth.
• Transitional Phase (Catagen Phase)
During this phase, hairs will detach from the blood supply. The detached follicles will slowly shrink to about 1/6 its size. Approximately 2-3 % of your hair will be in this phase which lasts for 2-3 weeks.
• Resting Phrase (Telogen Phrase)
10-15 % of your hair are in this phase. During this time, the hairs do not grow but stay attached to the follicles while the dermal papillas stay in a resting phase which lasts for 3-4 months. 50 - 100 hairs from this phase will shed daily.

Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) is the condition of hair thinning common in male adults. This happens when the concentration of male hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) increases. High DHT level shortens the growth phase of the hair growth cycle. With the growth phase reduced, new hairs are unable to get sufficient nutrients for healthy growth, resulting in thinner and weaker hair, increasing hair loss and visibility of balding, usually at the forehead and crown of the head.
