    I recently managed to grow a decent looking beard. I guess that makes me, officially, a masculine gay guy. However I cant let it grow much, it itches so fucking much I have to shave it off. How do you hairy people handle this?

    Shave it. You've got too much of a baby face to have facial hair.

    It takes a week or two to really get used to it, but eventually you just forget it's there.... In the long run, it's actually really convenient and fun to have. I always hated shaving anyway.

    Keep growing it. The itchy phase passes.

    what I did is I rubbed it instead of making it worse it made it feel better over time. It passes.

    It really does pass. Different for everyone depending on the length. I grow one in about a week. I sometimes use conditioner icon_smile.gif

    Douche it with hair conditioner; helps to soften the beard and makes it less "itchy".

    During the first week, the hair is short and the ends of the hairs are very sharp from recently being cut. After the hair gets a little longer, it will begin to lie flat against your face instead of curling around and poking at your skin (which is why it itches.) The best thing you can do is to apply a rich thick hand cream like Nivea. Rub it in well to really saturate the hair. This will not only be good for your hair but will decrease friction between your hair and skin...thus reduce itching dramatically. Never read this anywhere but this is my own personal philosophy after years of wearing facial hair.

    I applied Cortaid spray until I got used to the beard.

    At about day 5 (depending on how fast it grows)your beard grows out long enough that it itches no more. icon_wink.gif

    I haven't shaved for 2 weeks and it's starting to itch like crazy now - this shits gotta go.

    I love the person who posted the thick nivea cream. You do realise that it sticks to your hair like crazy and doesn't absorb properly ? I end up looking like fuckin Santa icon_lol.gif

    3 days is very short time. But if you are not used to it, its probably normal. I do shampoo my beard, makes it softer.
    AFter 6-8 weeks, it start to be to long and unconfortable, I dont want to look like a homeless icon_smile.gif SO I just trimmed it.

    Want to see a pic of you with a fully beard!icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah the itchiness passes away with time... it is normal at first times. Just some foam to shave and some warm water to open your skin pores icon_smile.gif

    Definitely will pass. Mine only stays in the itch phase for a day or two. But I barely notice it anymore.

    Tough it out...but whatever...you look good either way. icon_smile.gif

    You're supposed to rub it in silly. Besides, it doesn't have to be Nivea. Any rich cream works. Massage cream works great.

    If you don't want to be masculine you can put some glitter in it.

    If you're not used to growing a beard, the itchiness takes several days. Then the beard gets less scratchy and and softens and is not bad.

    Try a van Dyke; a mustache and goatee. Gives you that vaguely diabolical look.
