Thanks CJG_NYC, your post is now on the blog here. If the patch(es) are quite large I also suggest you look into a possible thyroid or iron deficiency to get your hair growing again.
Hope you guys don't mind but I need to ask a question for an upcoming post on my blog. What kind of scent would you wear on a first date? Would you go for something intense, generic, expensive, interesting, clean...?
Another vote for Santa Maria Novella Crema di Barba, that stuff is magical. I remember Proraso being quite good too.

I am using Dermalogica now, but I'm not sure if that's the best one. The best anti-wrinkle creams are retinoids and...
