Takes away a little gray for a Salt + Pepper look.
Any non beardie weirdies of the forum taking the opportunity to grow a little facial furniture during lockdown? 3+3 weeks ought to be long enough to grow something silly, even for the weakest beard grower!
12-week quarantine here, due to medical reasons, so plenty of time for me. Just over a week in and IT’S ITCHY!!!
I can’t get past ‘Ian-Beale-tramp’ before my nerve goes and I break out the clippers.
The itchy stage passed a week ago for me. But I still look like a scruffy toerag, I just don't have decent coverage.
Give it 8 weeks before you trim . Get some beard oil or balm if you can
That’s where I usually get to.
I’m gonna break through it.
im almost week 5 unshaven..
got past the bum fluff and itchy stages..in week 2
getting all captain birdseye bushy now
Having a crack at a moustache, 25 days in and it's very nearly visible to the naked eye.
I once had a go at cultivating a 'tache for Movember. On about the 29th November a friend peered closely at me and said 'oh, are you growing a moustache?'. Disheartening.
I tried to grow one last year and hardly anyone noticed, ha ha. I'm hoping to hit puberty some time before my 30th birthday in August.
When I’ve done Movember, I usually give it a month’s run-up with a designer stubble / goatee so I have something to show on Mov 1st!
Today’s status: SO ITCHY.
I have done the opposite and shaved off about 2yrs worth of beard, leaving behind a splendid silly moustache for the lols on video calls.
I VERY nearly bailed because of the itchiness! Did a wet shave down under my chin and it’s bearable again.
Usually have a trimmed mo but let it go and didn't shave from the Monday of the first week of lockdown. Had a melt down on Tuesday so to try and feel normal shaved everything off but there were many many greys that didn't used to be there.
Took a month's worth of growth down to this today. Wife hates it.
You still don't look old enough to be married
Just gradually make the vertical bits longer till approval is found.
3 weeks since I last shaved and I'm not back at work until the end of June. My beard usually naturally grows into a goatee with some fluff on my cheeks so I'm interested to see if it actually grows out before I shave it all off again.
Can you not see those grey hairs?
I usually grow one for Movember. The key for me to avoiding itchiness is to trim it around my mouth. The most itchy part for me is there. If i trim it back from my mouth I can even forget it's there.
Maybe a touch of ginger...
When did you say the itching stops?
The ol’ MOVID-19 is coming along nicely
I’m just gonna let it all grow and invest in beard oil.. either raccoon or badger style
I’m on the brink of shaving this off. The irritation is unbearable.
