I shaved my beard off in the '80s when I noticed that nearly everyone else wearing one was a socialist or a Liberal. The resurgence of beards among capitalist sports players hasn't won me back. I think they generally look like crap, Buddha's and Betty's and cboutlier's excepted, of course! :D

(BTW Betty, you're not nearly as pretty as I'd imagined you were!)
Lol Betty is my silvertone lol

This was around 8 months of growth or so

Damn, if I could grow a left arm like that in 8 months, I wouldn't care about the beard. Or the fact that I can't play guitar any more!


I've had one for decades. Didn't shave it off but all my facial/scalp hair fell out with the chemo (yep, even the eyebrows). But with the cue ball head, losing the beard was minor. It took twice as long to grow back than the hair did though. And I opted for a goatee. Everything grew back in its original color, like baby hair - for about six months - and then went back to grey.

too itchy for me, so ive never kept one for more than a month.
not a look I'm a usually a fan of.
I think unless youre exceptionally good looking, or have a real baby-face its usually more of a negative than a positive.

I wish I could grow a beard. I've tried a few times, but it just grows in scraggly and doesn't look right.
Gotta push through and let it get longer. I tell all my friends who claim they can't grow a beard that all you have to do is stop shaving.

CB, the two-month looks good!

I usually let it grow until just after I have to start combing it, and then trim it back to the 2 month length and start over.

I am lazy by nature so a beard fits in well. Grooming ain't my thing! Its not always a nice beard.

When I first met my wife, she begged me to shave my beard. I did and I couldn't grow it back quick enough for her. I shaved it completely off when my son was 5. He came home from school, took one look at me and began crying. He ran to the back of the house and locked himself in the porch.

Have spent most of my adult life with a beard. Shaved it off in 1990 for a couple of months and hated it, shaved again a couple of years ago at the behest of the folks who had to keep an oxygen mask on me during surgery but I immediately grew it back. I keep it trimmed fairly short most of the time, which requires very little time in front of a mirror...thank goodness.

Up until a few months ago I had something like rumbletone pictured going on.
It was maybe 6 years growth.

My gf was on me to get rid of it, she hates hair.
I'm like but I'm a Viking baby!

So one night or several nights actually I drank myself silly and she was displeased to the point of ejecting me from home.

I figured I'd cut off the beard and be forgiven.
So I did.
And it worked.
But now she makes me shave every week.
I hate it.
I look like a wanker.

Oddly she keeps telling me I'm no longer a Viking,
Despite my genetics and the associated age related conditions that scream"I'm a Viking".
Hmmm.

She lets me keep my hair tho.
I look like Fabio's ugly twin.
Or something.

The reason I ask is I have started using some stuff and it definitely helps the skin as well as the hair. The band is pals with two guys who started a beard care company in Toronto, its good stuff. Look up The Northern Beard Company if you're interested!

Anyone else here use beard oil/balm/conditioner?
I use shampoo & conditioner when I wash it--same stuff I use for my hair--think I'll wash it tomorrow.
