Often, in the periods of renewal, end-of-year celebrations, New Year's Day, this desire to challenge oneself or to take great resolutions seizes us. What a funny idea is it not?

For some, it will be a "one shot", as soon as the clippers are rested, we will start waiting for a regrowth, for others a period, indeterminate, where the desire to renew the gesture will be more urgent every month, every week and a new lifestyle associated with this proud and free pace. It can take a long time, years. How to go back? It may be a new year and new resolutions …
