    well, it would be awful to disappoint the ladies wouldn't it?




    I use no beauty products on any of my beards at all. Some water and fire, that is all. Sigga says that when my beard gets big, it often tickle her face but she was dumb enough to marry me so she can't just up and leave . Besides, i'd get half her shit!

    Bob, I wasn't aware that I had a long-lost Icelandic brother. Disturbing revelations indeed!

    Until one about pubic hair comes along.

    As for my beard, it never lasts very long and doesn't grow in full, but usually I go with soap or shampoo when I even remember I have a beard while showering. This is the most it ever grew:



    And I'm thinking of letting it grow again. This thread has encouraged me. I shall make use of Alan Tyson's guide.

    Not that that means I'll take a picture of myself topless with a beardful of soap, you perverts.

    I have the serious Beard Envy now (it's bad enough that my flatmate has a magnificent, if supremely ginger, specimen).

    Mine grows in in a patch a couple of inches wide in the centre of my chin and NOWHERE ELSE. It is also (at the tender age of 23) already shot through with streaks of grey.

    On the plus side, I can grow a rather dashing moustache, providing I remember to keep it trimmed, otherwise I quickly end up looking hobo-riffic.

    @Nil: I am, myself, jealous of your ability to grow a proper mustache. Mine just makes me look like a sad, retired traffic cop.

    I stopped using shampoo in high school (insufficiently punk), and started using plain old Ivory soap on my whole head. As the facial hair came in, it got cleaned with plain soap too. Never saw a reason to go back to paying for that fancy perfumed soup of chemicals.

    Shampo shampoo shampoo. I can not express the huge difference it made in me not using soap anymore on my beard, and washing it with shampoo instead.

    Also, if you plan on growing it out to ANY sort of length beyond really close and have a real-life person job (not a cool one where you can look like a Viking), what you'll also need is a beard comb. Again, one of those things that I got and started to use after a few years of having a big beard and it just helps so much.

    This is what my beard looks like these days, this picture is a few months old but not much has changed.

    I hate you all. Preening beard-laden men and wistful women. Not that I'm bitter about facial hair at all.

    Easily the nicest my beard has ever looked, from about this time last year:

    beardface

    The result of a good, solid half-hour of shampooing, combing, and scissor-trimming. The worst part? I wasn't even going to do anything nice or fine dress-requiring that day. It was just a "dress up and look purdy" kind of day, I suppose.

    I have a fine mustache, like the ones of old, when men were men and men were armed at all times (my personal tribute to the magic and music of Captain Beefheart, Stonewall Jackson and Groucho Marx). I just use water, no soap. I have a beard of some distinction (not like these Jeremiah Johnson motherfuckers, it's actually more Mephistophelean than anything else, my personal nod to Leonard Nimoy in the "Mirror,Mirror" episode of the original Star Trek) and again, just water, no soap. I also take my coffee black and wouldn't DREAM of mixing whisky with anything but my own breath.

    Pictures will be available once you ladies scrape together enough money.

    I pull a little shampoo down, it doesn't take much. My biggest downside is that it is blonde and is not easily visable. I have thought about a full beard but it makes me look amish.

    Now I know how Dr. Frankenstein felt shortly after the monster smashed through the wall and ran into the mountains.
