If “wounding” is done through peelings, I must remember that it was already very popular at these hairloss forums some years ago, that fashion gone … I don’t think peeling itself will produce a “significant” regrowth if any

Let me make a joke here, but now we know that the old lunatic resident from alt.baldspot ( Ernie Primeau ) was right … LOL
