Despite my apparent young age, I unfortunately have an embarrassing hair loss crisis.
It's difficult to hide my shame every time I go to my hairdresser, only to have him shake his head and tell me, "Kenny, your hair is getting less and less. What's going on? You're only 26!"
It's not like I didn't try to find a cure. I bought a tonic solution that I have to rub into my head every night, but I got lazy after applying it for a few months.
Then I went to consult a doctor about this.
The doctor, who thinks I'm a primary school student, told me that I have too much male testosterones, which is causing of my hair loss.
Apparently, being too much of a man is a bad thing.
He also got me on this pill called Propecia. Some of my hair grew back after taking them continuously for about a year, but I stopped because each month's supply costs me a ridiculous RM180, and I reckon RM180 could be spent on better things than growing hair.
Not long after I stopped Propecia, my hair stopped growing along with it.
So I was in Bangkok this past weekend when I spotted this signage at a market. Beneath a whole bunch of Thai alphabets, it says in English "HERBAL MEDICINE - HAIR GROWTH".
Interesting. It's definitely something worth trying.
Then I took a peek inside the shop, and saw this photo of the inventor.
This, my friend, is what happens when you have a taste of your own medicine and it's TOO BLOODY EFFECTIVE.
