Growing a beard can be a bit of process, a long and sometimes awkward process. Luckily, here at The Fan this isn’t our first rodeo. In the spirit of Movember, we’ve collected a few tips to help the hair growing journey. How to get a good mustache.
The first few days or week can be the worst part of the whole process if you’re not used to being a little fuzzy. There isn’t much that can be done about this feeling other than just toughing it out. Sorry, dude.
Believe it or not, there are certain things you can do to help grow your beard out even more than what it’s doing right now. Of course, a lot of it depends on genetics, but lets look at what is in your control. For instance, here is a great article on how to naturally boost your testosterone, which in turn will help grow your beard.
Myth: Shaving your beard does not make it grow faster. It doesn’t. I mean, seriously? Come on.
Good shaving styles
This might be the most important part of this entire article – listen up. In the beginning you’ll start off using a nature soap to clean your beard and/or mustache. Try goat soap to make the stubble softer (your lady will thank you). Later on, when your face mane is longer, you’ll use shampoo. Stay away from anything that contains alcohol in it. This will cause too much drying of your skin and hair – which won’t help anything. Drink booze; don’t put it on your face.
Once your face fur has grown out enough you’ll need things like: beard oil, beard comb, styling cream, and a trimmer or scissors. But that’s for a whole other article entirely.
There are actually a lot of options as far as hairstyles for your cheeks/lips. No matter what you choose, remember that cleanliness and trimming go a long way. Like, whoa.
It’s not easy being green – or wearing a rug on the lower half of your face. You might get a lot of jokes about it or questions at first. The best is to just be up front with everyone right away. Saying something along the lines of, “I’m trying something new, while also helping out a great cause.” Most people should be pretty supportive after that, but if not then maybe you need some new friends.
Mostly, just know you're not in this alone. Our producers are going through the same thing - and for a good cause. Support your fellow man, your face, and Movember!
