(quick history) Been a very long time since I last posted, life took over, now have a good job and a beautiful daughter, but SBG posts kept popping up on my Facebook so had the itch to return. I started losing my hair age 19/20 and the guys on this site helped me immensely and I shaved my head at 21 based upon the help from the bros! I am now nearly 30 and still sly, so I guess you could say its a keeper.
However, I did over the festive period, for the first time in 5 years, tried not shaving my head or trimming my beard.... Needless to say, my hair hasn't miraculously decided to grow thick and luxurious again and I still cannot grow an epic lumberjack worthy beard. I caught a couple of pictures that people took of me during the growing period and I was shocked. Last night I shaved my head and trimmed my beard and I can honestly say, I look at least 5/7 years younger and despite being sly for so many years, the confidence that returned was instantaneous
Anyone who is on the fence, if the inevitable is happening/has happened make 2017 your year and grab the razor by the horns, as it were.
Hope to post a lot more again, sorry for the long post and I hope everyone is well.
Current shaving rig: Gillette Mach 3 (since day one), Molton Brown pre shave scrub, Molton Brown shave Gel, bit of after sun lotion for post shave and some moisturizer
