Im trying to grow a beard but the itching is driving me nuts. Once its fully grown in does it still itch? Is there any way to soften it?
 
I've got a beard. I've had it for many years now. It only itches for a few days when it grows in. It will soften as the hair gets a bit longer. You can also use conditioner on it when you take a shower to soften it a bit.
 
I've had a full beard for several years now, and have shaved it off a couple of times and regrown it. It never really itched for me, and doesn't itch now. I second the suggestion of using conditioner on it in the shower, btw.

ymmv

I hate shaving, have had a beard pretty much from the time I could grow one, some 20 odd years ago. Just last year shaved off the beard as it was going white. I am growing one back for Christmas(what better time to have a white beard?), and noticed it was itchy for about a week as it was coming in. Don't bother me no more.
 
have a beard and have shaved it a few times it itches somewhere in the 1 or 2 week of growth then stops.
 
I've had a beard for about 40 years. The only time it ever itched was when I got crabs in it, but a couple of washings with RID took care of that.
 
The last time I shaved it off was June 1979. The itching will stop.

Iagree with everyone else,it only itches for a week or so and conditioner is the way to go. Iusually have a beard , though this year i have been clean shaven since my stroke in january.However i am looking forward to growing it back again, i have one of those electric trimmers for keeping it groomed i liked to keep it at a manageble length :cool:

That's me up there last year at 43, had that sucker since I was 15, it's been long, short but only off twice.

Once to go to court, and once to get a job, swore I'd never do either again,(shave that is, although I haven't been to court in a long time).

In answer to your question ,(What the hell was your question again?) oh yea, it does eventually stop as it gets a little longer/softer, and you do get used to it, be patient, and if nothin' else works, only grow it while you sleep, this way you'll be sleepin' and ya won't care :D ;) :rolleyes: .

I'm 39, the last time I saw my face without a beard was 1987. The last time I went to a barber was sept 1991.

Scared lil' kids....:( :confused:



Ocassionally I'll shave it down to about half-inch or so....and then it will itch for a week or so.

Same thing happens when you shave....er....other parts of your body. :eek:
(will NOT elaborate further!)

:barf:



It does get softer, the longer it gets. Mine is pretty coarse - good mountain-man type stuff....I've got it about one inch long right now and it's already soft-n-fluffy.

Like others have said - conditioner does help.

Dare we ask what activities you engaged in that caused crabs to appear in your beard?

No, on second thoughts, don't answer that, I'm sure I don't want to know.

Since we're posting beard pics, here is an exremely hard to see one of mine. (Only pic I've got to hand).

I used to have some good pictures, but this is the only one I can find, and it's really short from right after a trim in the summer. .

Oi ACMarina. Put that pic away. What a disgrace. You call that a beard????

Now Daniel's and Erdelyi's beard. Those are real beards.

Having a beard is easy. Shaving just takes too much time. I'm thinking i'll probably have to shave sometime when i need to get a job but not anytime soon. Although i've been trying out the handlebar 'tache.
 
last spring I had a 3/4" growth going... shaved it down to a goatee in april.... just the chin going right now, think I'll regrow a full goatee again though.

the full beard made my face too round.
 
Hey, sometimes they make me go out in public, and looking like a yeti seems to be unacceptable to them. Normally when I'm not doing PR I look more like Daniel (in the beard anyway). .I'll try and find a pic and post it later. .
