To be honest, when I first started growing my beard I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I do. I remember at one time I had grown it for 4 months, then shaved it off. It was the worst experience of my life. I felt empty and alone.
And so we have arrived here, just a man with a beard that LOVES every minute of it. So much, in fact, that I’ve been studying the art of growing a full girth beard. Here is a little taste of what we are calling Beard-Osophy 101. It’s an intro, if you like, to growing a beard and getting through the early stages.
When you start growing your beard you may have some itchiness. This is fairly common. When the hair follicles start to protrude more from the skin, it can cause a little irritation as it is something the skin is not used to…yet!
To over come this, it is best to get moisture in to your skin. At this point, I have to totally plug D + T Organic Beard Care products. It is essential you stay out of your girlies beauty products and lather your skin with creamy moisturisers. This can actually sometimes cause more irritation and may lead to the dreaded beard-druff.
The best thing you can use is organic oil, and our essential oil products. I would recommended the Peace or Noosa blend in this situation as the essential oils in these products help produce a calming effect on your skin and central nervous system.
