If you are here it is because you have made one of the best decisions a man can make: Growing a Beard.
Faced with this imposing and motivating challenge, we have to warn you that the bearded world is not a bed of roses. You will have to fight against looks of envy and attraction everywhere… it is part of the beauty of wearing a good beard.
The first steps are always the most delicate, so we are going to tell you a little about what your life will be like during the first weeks of growth. Seriously speaking, having a thick and well-groomed beard is something that requires dedication and discipline, but it is worth it.
Know the limits of your beard
The first and fundamental thing is to know what our limits are when it comes to working on the growth of our beards.
Many times, genetics plays against us; we do not have a closed beard. In these cases, we have to be realistic and assess whether the amount of facial hair we have will be enough to hide those areas where it grows more sparsely or even not at all.
Knowing this, we do not have to give up a modern look, perhaps a good mustache can give you that differential look you want. Guillermo has opted for a good mustache.
The reason for the beard on our face
Like the magician Moreno, we must be clear about what we are doing and the motivation we follow to grow our beard.
You may only be interested in trying it to be able to tell your children about it, you may do it because it is what sets the fashion, because you think that this way the “little girls” will like you more… whatever, but be clear that if the motivation does not is strong, the process can come crashing down.
Bearded Hell Week
Depending on your beard and skin type, this may or may not be one of the toughest weeks of your life.
If it’s the first time you’ve let your beard grow, you’re going to feel “weird” and the itchiness may make your existence bitter. Especially if you have a very hard type of beard and with a straight growth … itchiness is going to be a constant in this phase.
