Beard-fi

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I think I'm just going to stop shaving. I'm tired of wasting the extra 5 minutes every morning. No trimming either, I'm going mountain man style. After two days it's feeling kind of liberating. Plus, when I pick my GF up at the airport in a few weeks she won't recognize me and'll think I'm trying to kidnap her.

I go through phases where I get sick of shaving and just let the beard grow out. But eventually get tired of the beard and just shave it off.

I shaved my beard off for about 8 months once. Other than that, I've had mine for about 25 years. I hate to shave. Fortunately, I have a very soft beard so I don't have an issue with it being itchy.

I wish I could say the same. When I grow a beard it itches like crazy, hence my decision to get rid of it.

I let my beard grow until it gets itchy, then I shave. Then I don't shave until I have a beard again. Repeat.

Sounds like a plan.

I have the opposite problem. I have sensitive skin so I get razor burn very easily, especially in hot weather. Some lotions help but my best alternative is to not shave.

I didn't have my beard when I started dating my wife. After dating for a month, she finally figured out why her nose and chin were raw, my five o'clock shadow. She gave me a choice, shave twice a day or grow my beard back. Easy choice since I was thinking of doing it anyway. Luckily, my beard stops being bristly at about 1/4". I trim about once a month, or when my wife nags me.

I just got rid of my beard after 2 months, normally i just trim it but a few times a year everything goes off
the reason why i have a beard is because i'm lazy and hate shaving

Ah, scompton, I can only hope that my red, red beard will grey as nicely as yours has. Gotta love that full beard with a look of being a goatee concurrently - very sophisticated looking! My dad went the same way (totally white now, bald head to boot - can't wait for that ), can only wait and see.

Somewhat related, I'm starting to notice increasing occurences of white hair in what I can only describe as the "Reed Richards" zone.

I get razor burn very easily, as well. So I'm double screwed. Plus I seem to cut myself an awful lot. I lose at life.

It's even greyer now. That pics from about a year and a half ago. My hair is thinning a little, but nothing like my father. I saw his senior year high school picture and he had no hair on top. His hair line was past the crown of his head at 18.

I hit my limit at about 4 weeks of not shaving, then it really starts driving me nuts.

I'm 20 and I still can't grow a beard. It's slightly emasculating.
