There were two in the bed and the little one said roll over, roll over moustaches (you've had your month) and make way for the beard, as today is the start of DECEMBEARD. For those of you who haven't grasped the concept of DECEMBEARD yet. For the month of December you have to grow your beard to raise awareness for bowel cancer.
Unfortunately most, if not all of us have experienced, either directly or indirectly someone who has been effected by cancer. Every 15 minutes someone will be diagnosed with bowel cancer, which means by the time I have written this article, 8 people would have been given the awful news and that hurts deep inside. So lets sign up to decembeard now and share beard selfies, concerns, grooming advice etc using the comments at the bottom of this blog or via my instagram or twitter.
The best thing about growing a beard is that I'm pretty sure many of us have either a) already grown a beard or stubble of some sort or b) would like to see what you would look like with a beard. And lets be honest, its not as if the beard trend is going anywhere - so not only are you doing good for charity but I'm actually helping you look like a total epic dude!
For me the month is going to be a little bit of a struggle because my facial hair is wiry, curly, patchy and going grey. All that said I'm totally looking forward to it, as I have already been growing my beard for a few weeks and have got past the itchy stage now. Even my girlfriend now loves it...bonus, it means I might actually keep it until DECEMBEARD 2016! Now that would be instagramable!
I'm not sure if you have noticed from my photos but I'm getting a serious number of grey hairs on my head and recently they have long-jumped down to my beard. So I just wanted to address this subject, as I know many of you may have the same issue as me with a partial grey beard. Well I have a solution and it's Just For Men.
I used 'Just For Men Moustache & Beard' yesterday as I wanted to kick DECEMBEARD off with a vibrant beard with zero greys. The product is great as it can help cover the greys whilst also enhancing the colour of your beard and therefore making them look thicker. Its also very simple to use.
- Important: always remember to do the allergy patch test 48 hours before using the product.
- Apply to a dry beard.
- Put a line of the colour base and the natural colour developer into the mixing tray.
- Mix together well.
- Apply to your beard using the brush, targeting the greys first.
- Leave for 5 minutes.
- Rinse off.
Here is my before and after shot. Although for me it doesnt look much difference from afar, I can assure you that there were greys but not anymore!
Just For Men Moustache & Beard is the only male facial hair dye that can help men cover their greys and ensure their moustache and/or beard is looking its best. Just For Men can help men achieve the look they want, with ease. By using Just For Men Moustache & Beard facial hair looks fuller, more even and well-groomed. Just For Men Moustache & Beard gets rid of the scraggly look of grey facial hairs and its ammonia-free formula is made to penetrate coarse facial hair.
