Any 🐠 growing a quarantine beard? Any tips for a first timer? I’m at about 5 days of not shaving and way past my comfort zone

Getting past the first 2 weeks is critical. You’ll likely come to a point where the itching becomes unbearable and you’ll want to shave. Don’t! Suck it up and move past it. If you really need something take a Benadryl.

To those of you growing mustaches, remember you’ll never look like Robin Olds!

Best if luck


You gotta make it through the itchy phase then it’s all good. Just let it go.


From someone who had a beard, recently shaved, and is growing it back:
- your best friend is a beard brush, keep it with you for the itch
- moisturize your ENTIRE face. If you don’t moisturize, nows a good time to start. If you don’t want to, grab some beard oil and work it into the beard and skin every other day
- if you feel the need to shave, trim your neckline. If you see a bald spot, ignore it. I grew through two decent sized ones and it filled in nicely
- if you have to be presentable for anything, watch some videos on YouTube about beard styles, and work with what you have. Just by the left corner of my mouth I have a noticeable bald spot and it bothered the hell out of me. Finally embraced it by disconnecting the other side so they matched and got a lot of compliments! Highly recommend going for it, good luck!


Same here haha


Same here! Personal best is 6 days, likely to be broken tomorrow unless I forget and shave out of habit...



A beard is a great hiding spot for virus.


Beard is close to the entry point - nose and mouth. That’s why we are washing our hands - not because the virus enters from the hands.

I’m 1 week in

Let the beards grow!

I usually trim every week. Probably going to let it grow out now. Moisturizing is key.

Something I wish someone had told me the first time I really grew a beard:

Grow it we’ll past the point of it looking clean and then trim it down into a nice shape and density. If you try to keep clipping a trimming along the way, till it becomes what you want, you’ll spend WAY more time getting it to how you like it.

I really want to grow it but have way too many white hair now, more than I would like to sport

There is a hair coloring kit for that. Just for Men makes it I believe

Doing a goatee, been 2 weeks now
