A Cut Above the Rest: Hair Food Co.’s Growing Success

by Sean G

“Carefully listen and observe your customers’ needs, wants, and frustrations. They are your greatest resource for business success,”

Hair Food Co. founder Ralph Layco preached at Beauty and Wellness Manila, the Philippine’s first beauty and cosmetics expo.

At his barbershop, he observed his customers’ frustrations on balding, thinning, and salt and peppered hair. Determined to help his customers, he traveled abroad to research and develop products that effectively restore hair.

Layco believes that his products should be effective and completely safe for human consumption. With natural ingredients from abroad, HairFood Co.’s products are free from harmful chemicals that disrupt hormones, and damage skin, and cause cancer.

With his sister, Helen Kaye Layco, they opened their first store at SM City, General Santos, Philippines. Pressured with limited funds, and a pricy 3-month lease, they started their business with 20 units for restoring hair loss. Their first batch sold out in the first month.
