I realize I am necromancering, an old thread, but I have decided, to let my inner Toxic Masculinity/Duck Dynasty, freak flag fly.
I have let my beard grow for the last three months. I can't call it salt and pepper because it's more salt than pepper.
I have been trying different beard oils, balms, washes, etc..
I can't say that I have found a major difference in beard oils, aside from the different fragrances. Beard balms, however, are world's apart. Cheaper balms, are heavy with wax, which makes my beard feel heavy, and don't wash out easily. They are harder to emulsify, in my hands, and after a few hours cause my beard to stiffen up, and feel coarse. I won't endorse any one brand over another, simply, because my experience may be different than other's, but if you are new to the beard experience, don't waste your money, trying to save money, on balms. As far as washes, again, soap is soap, I haven't been able to distinguish, one over another, but like with all of these, I have a limited amount of time, and a limited number of products, that I have tried.

I'm not sure why I decided to keep my face away from sharp metal objects for so long, but I do like the results so far, and Mrs. Jusne has either decided, it's not worth arguing about, or that anything that disguises, my appearance is not a bad thing. :mrgreen:

Thanks I'll give it a try.
I have discovered, not that I wasn't pretty much aware, I'll never have a Sam Elliot, or Walter Brimley, type mustache, but the rest of it seems to be growing quite nicely. I'll know more in a few months, whether this will be my new look or not. Of course at my age most people will just assume I forgot to shave, and no one wanted to hurt my feeling by pointing out .:biggrinjester:

I'll tell you what though.... if it will still grow in nice and thick in 4 weeks, you really owe it to yourself to grow it out at least once. ...
Yeah, but I am pretty sure that while I would aim for this:

I would end up with this:

Yeah I would definitely keep it shaved then, if it causes a swastika to grow between your eyes!!

Re: Bearding

Just a Van Dyke neatly trimmed for me. Anytime it gets too unruly, Mrs. Jusme complains. I also have a
very thin mustache, so a full beard looks very strange on me. For those blessed with awesome facial hair, grow on!
