    I started trimming the grey wiry eyebrow bristles when I turned forty. My wife complained that my untamed brows made me look lke Rumpole of the Bailey, so I cut them back with a pair of nail scissors. You can buy an actual nose and ear hair trimmer for under twenty bucks if you shop around.

    No shampoo. Sometimes soap from washing face, but really mostly just water. Never experienced any problems with dry skin - never even knew face dandruff was a thing that could happen!

    When I shave, I shave first, shower second. When I trim but don't shave, I do it myself with a battery powered electric beard trimmer. I also use a beard comb when it gets thicker, as it is at the moment.

    When I'm ready to go from full beard to cleanshaven, I sometimes seek the offices of a professional, but generally it's all rather casually self maintained.

    This is the 163rd post to this inexplicable thread. I kept thinking it would just die before my resistance broke. But it didn't.

    Oh oddbill....I can already hear the crescendo of "hummuna hummuna hummuna" building towards you. This will end in tears, mark my words.

    I just ambled through this thread and it's like some hairy hormonal shitstorm orgy nightmare.

    My facial hair is evil.

    When I sleep it leaves my face and prowls the streets looking for prey.

    So I can never let it grow.

    White ear and nostril hairs, for fuck's sake... I'm only 47 and the damn things Never Stop Sprouting.
    Also, there's no pain quite as eye-wateing as plucking nostril hair, is there?

    @ Cat V: I find manually removing ear hair miles worse than nose hair - at least I end-up with a good sneeze after the latter. Ear sproutation has NO redeeming qualities going for it and you're absolutely right: it never, ever stops growing. My step-dad claims if he doesn't get the ear jungle he develops trimmed regularly, it begins to send him deaf. Which wouldn't surprise me because it looks like ear-plugs made out of condensed pubes.

    No ear hair here yet. I think I might prefer the Van Gogh route instead...

    At twenty seven, I already have to pluck both my nostrils and my eyebrows. Luckily, only the eyebrows have so far started sprouting the scaryily tough white hairs. If my old uncle is anything to go by, I'm going to look like a horned owl by the time I'm sixty.

    I am simultaneously very confused by and immensely jealous of all this beardiness. Damn you, chin. Damn you to hell.

    Maybe one of the best but not a first. Found this from early 2008 whilst tracking backwards through all 256 pages of Whitechapel threads (yes, yes, yes. I have too much free time.)

    But looking through that made me realise I haven't seen stsparky on here for ages.
