Started a beard at the University to look all academic and hip and haven't shaved in 30 years. I keep it nice and trim with these....

Unless I get a role as some kind of homeless guy, reprobate, drunk or old cowboy then I let it grow, but trim it back when the films over.

I saw an article about beard oils.
I have never used beard oil.... now I am thinking that I might.... once I get some!

My facial hair is very coarse too and I've also had a time when my facial hair went into the skin on my hand. We've got hair of steel

Don't.... it's just overpriced generic hand lotion. I use baby oil...the ladies love it. Works almost like pheromones. That maternal instinct can work to our advantage; if you catch my drift....

Not much to do with it if you like it! Patience is the hardest part in growing a Beard . You will have the in between times when it looks like hell and such BUT don't shave BE Patient it will pay off in the end with a THICK glorious beard in bout 6-8 months give or take a few months..lol

Thanks for the opportunity to ask this question OP! lol

I've been trying to grow some in for the past 2 years. I used to hardly have any coming in except for mustache, sideburns, and some goatee chin hair up til about 30yrs old, and would only have to shave it once in a great while, maybe a month. Now im 32.

That became three weeks, then two, now I don't have a regular frequency at all b/c I'm trying to get it to grow in even more. I get it on my neck, chin, mustache and sideburns, but it doesn't grow in hardly at all where you'd connect them on the cheeks.

HOW do you encourage growth? By not shaving it clean ofc, but what about scissor trimmings? Should I be trying to make it even on both sides with a scissor? Is there any diet or vitamin that helps, etc? Freakishly there's a bit more coming in one on side of my neck vs the other.


Also, my neck hair is thinner in some spots vs others, so it ends up looking all straggly and thin when it grows in. I hope it comes in more, but if this is all I get (I'm a tiny bit native american, but only like a trace, maybe 1/12th), I'll have to get used to rocking a "Van Dyke" like the great artists of the Renaissance. Lol.

I will keep the metal alive, even if I have to grow it strand by strand, from my own damned chin!


OH!

Here's another tip for the OP!

I would advise you allow shave completely once, then allow yourself to reach the full face fishermans beard for a month, and then chop out what you do not want. I had my first shave with an electric razor my father bought for my birthday, at the age of sixteen. The next week, he buggered off out of the family home, and took it with him. He's a blaggard, what can I say?

I had a massive fishermans beard before long, and sculpted it. Also, if you intend on going down the pointy, downward facing route, I would advise getting some miniature hair bands, and strapping that beard into a point for an hour or so every now and again, just to pull the follicles into a pattern which promotes uniform directionality. Its a great way to tame an unruly face gerbil.

I have sported(what a wonderfull term to describe a beard) almost every type of facial hair over the years from designer stubble through goatee's, mutton chops, handle bar moustache's and even for a few months a proper Mr T with matching mohawk. I bleached it with peroxide once and dyed it green but I would not reccomend this though as putting 40% peroxide on your tash for an hour makes you really rather ill.

I have only done the hitler tash in my own home whilst shaving of a beard for the grins.

I am now going for a full on big beard as I watched a tv show called mountain men on netflix and thought I would give it a go.

There is nothing better than a good beard in my opinion.

He's only 1/8th but it still takes him about a week to a week and a half to get an impressive growth of stubble.

I can't wait until it warms up so I can get rid of mine. I spend a lot of time outside. My face gets cold so I haven't shaved. The dang thing is driving me crazy. It itches and food gets in it if I'm not careful.
