Thinking of growing my beard. How do you all like salt n pepper beards? More salt than pepper! I haven’t grown a full beard (for me a full beard is a month’s growth atleast) since I was 21 and that was 20 years ago! In the meanwhile, I have grown stubble worth a week and maybe 10 days worth once and a French beard that was there for 2 months when I was 35.
When I was 21 I grew my beard for 3 weeks as I was ill in between and then I just thought it would be fun to keep it on. At the end of that month, I went in for a circumcision which meant that I would be away from going out and attending classes (at NIIT) for about 5 weeks. So I had the procedure and then rested for 5 weeks during which time I did not shave at all. Anyways by the end of 1 month my beard was so thick that I couldn’t shave it with my measly 2 blade razor anyways.
So once I healed completely and could wear underwear again, I went with a cousin of mine to the city and the first place we went to was the barbershop for a long over-due shave and a haircut. By popular demand I must add. I had a full shave and a chopping of my longish hair and it made me look like myself again. Since then I haven’t grown a full beard. Maybe it is time!
