Below is my Year Long Beard (Yeard) – Week 1 Review.
That’s right it has been one full week since my last shave, how do I feel about the first week of my year long beard?
Well as I’ve been clean shaven for most of my life I wanted to shave. I really wanted to bring up the neckline to just above the adam’s apple. This is typically the spot you want your bear to end. I reached out to George Bruno AKA The Sultan of Silver and he said one of his biggest beard regrets is trimming the beard in the very beginning. He recommends not touching the beard for at least 6-12 weeks to allow the beard to grow and fill in fully before styling the beard.
Overall the beard is coming in nicely, very evenly, very little itch. Most of the itching I’m getting is from where my collar is hitting the stubble. To get rid of the itch I use a combination of beard oil, and beard balm. You don’t need a lot of beard oil or balm at this stage of the beard, but they do help.
You can see our articles on Beard OIl, and Beard Balm on our Beard Care page for more information on beard oil, beard balm, and beard wax.
