Hey there everyone, and welcome back to The Beard struggle blog, where we constantly go above and beyond to keep you up to speed with all things beard care related in our frequent blogs and other crazy beardy breaking stories.
Today we wanted to jump a little ahead of ourselves, as we plan way ahead for a little thing known as 'No Shave November', also smartly titled 'Movember'. 'Movember'.
The one month a year that any man can participate in attempting to grow out a little facial hair, all in the goodwill of charity. It's a pretty special setup that often sees many men become rather attached to their face fuzz, so tread with caution to the beardless if this is your first year participating, as you're likely to become attached.
So, what are we gonna do today? We're going to give you a little 'foolproof' guide on how to grow out and survive Movember, so without further delay, let us begin today's topic sweetly titled - 'Your Early Guide To No Shave November'...
FIRST THINGS FIRST, THROW AWAY THE RAZOR, IT'S TIME TO LET THINGS GROW!
Possibly the most obvious dot of advice here would be to dispose of those dreadful razors, if only for the month, and let your facial hair grow loudly and proudly this November.
But do be warned, if you are new to this beard game, there's a strong chance that you will quickly fall for your newfound face fur, and as November comes to a sweet close you might not be ready to ax it all off.
YOU HAVE GOT TO SURVIVE THAT BEARD ITCH, MY FRIEND!
So, you're a couple of days, maybe weeks into growing your face fuzz, and the dreaded itching phase has begun to flare up, and feels, well, let's be honest, un-FRIGGIN-bearable!
Yes, every man and his dog (a terribly British saying, I don't expect you to get it!) has nearly fallen at the dreadful beard itch, but thankfully this doesn't last so long, only a week or so at tops, and you can actually counter this by keeping your face clean, fresh and oiled with a little light product.
But do take it from me, this stage will very much be worth facing when you start to see the beard results you've always wanted, so hang in there my Brother.
HOW MUCH BEARD IS TOO MUCH BEARD?
So, you've been growing along nicely for nearly a month, when does facial hair become a little too much? Well, that depends on the beholder.
Some men rather enjoy a shorter, more tidy beard style, whereas others might prefer the long, Viking style flowing beard instead.
So, to answer the question, there can NEVER be too much beard, so long as it's looked after, as there's nothing worse than an unkempt beard. They quickly become a hive of troublesome hairs, knots, tangles and split ends.
So, whatever you grow, be sure to keep it clean, well groomed and treated with the finest products known to man on the face of the planet.
NO SHAVE NOVEMBER IS OVER, DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO SHAVE?
So, Movember is quickly becoming redundant as December begins, but does this mean it has to be the end of your newfound magical beard? Absolutely not!
First things first, it is totally your call if you decide to keep your face fuzz or not, and it makes perfect sense to become rather attached to it throughout the time you've spent growing out.
Some workplaces may frown upon facial hair, but essentially it is your call and your call alone on what you do moving forward.
