Happy Wednesday my folks, it's that time of week where Monday is almost out of mind and we can almost smell the weekend that is peeping right around the corner. Today let's take a look at a few rather common beard related myths that we could only hope were true, as we start today's topic which is titled 4 Beard Myths That We Only Wish Were True...
A BEARD WILL GROW AS LONG AS THE BEHOLDER CHOOSES TO LET IT GROW!
If only this was true! Unfortunately our facial hair growth is pretty much predetermined in our bodies genetics long before we even pondered the very idea or sprouting out our face gruff. Yes, we hit spots where our hair facial hairs growth will slow and appear to almost completely stop, but truth is it doesn't really stop all together.
You might notice that 'Crazy Bob'
from work only has to sneeze before for an epic face full of fuzz to appear, whereas you've been hard at it for weeks if not months and struggle to muster up a little beard growth if much at all. Of course there's things you can do to further your ever growing chances, but your inherited genetics are the real key behind every great beard. SHAVING MAKES YOUR FACIAL HAIR GROW BACK FASTER AND FULLER!
This little old wives tale has always confused me ever so slightly. So, the story goes if your face fuzz is growing patchy or thin in certain areas, shaving and starting over will encourage your fuzz to grow back faster, thicker and fuller. The idea of this alone sounds a little suspect from the start, and rightfully so as in my opinion this is one big crock of crap.
Shaving won't magically have the reverse effect in order for things to grow out quicker, if anything it's the equivalent of hitting the 'reset button' and starting over from square one. ike hitting the 98th square on a game of snakes & ladders, seeing you fall flat back to square one. BEARDED DUDES GET ALL THE LADIES ALL OF THE TIME!
Of course, we all know women seem to dig a man with a face full of handsome whiskers, but it's not the beard alone that attracts one person to another.
Bearded or not, a man can still be a total asshole and have a beard and the wrong attitude to match. So, whilst your furry face may give you an advantage in the dating pool, if you have a stinky attitude the chances are you'll wake the next day alone and still a 'Billy No Mates'. LETTING YOUR FACE FLUFF GROW OUT SAVES YOU LOADS OF TIME NOT SHAVING!
Said no bearded man ever! Whoever started this old chestnut that if you do not shave you will save load of time clearly has never had any facial hair of their own.
Yes, you might feel you snap up a couple of extra minutes each morning in the first couple of days not having to raise that razor to your stubbly cheeks (not those cheeks, you filth!) but truth be told our beards require quite the upkeep!
Washing those whiskers, using premium oils, butters and balms and then combing/brushing your lovely man-mane requires time, love and attention. So if you were growing to save time, you are in the wrong lane my friend.
