RE: The Master Man Beard Thread
Does anyone have any advice for dealing with acne underneath your beard? I have oily skin and I'm still prone to the occasional zit. I recently had one that was much more irritating due to the beard rubbing against it.

You get acne under your beard because the build up of dead skin and oil from your glands isn't getting cleared away. Normally shaving removes that build up from those areas of your face.

Get a good comb and a stiff-bristled brush, and use them both once a day on your dry beard. Doing both will help you maintain the skin under your beard, as well as tame the direction of the growth to a degree as I posted before.

Also use some beard oil. You can get something fancy, but coconut oil will do the job too.

RE: The Master Man Beard Thread
Everyone gather round, its beard time with uncle Cr33pin.

As fate would have it, yesterday I was enjoying a chicken burger for lunch at the bar of a roof top pool here in the Ukraine. There were fine young Ukrainian hotties everywhere in their thong bikini's, drinking, dancing, an taking selfies. There was a hype man having little contest throughout the the afternoon. The hype man then gathered all the hottest young talent there for a contest. It was a selfie scavenger hunt. An low and behold their first mission in the hunt was to get a selfie with the guy the biggest beard. Upon hearing this news I put my chicken burger down and proceeded to wipe my beard clean and smirk. An then it happened.... I was bum rushed by so much young hot talent it would make Hugh Hefner's head spin. After the all the selfies were taken and the girls gone, I continued to finish off my burger an watch the rest of the contest. As it all came to a end I paid my tab then proceed out of the bar area with my iphone in hand and hunted down some of the hottest girls who participated in the selfie contest and opened them with "Now its my turn to take a selfie with you" which in turn lead to conversations and hanging out in their cabanas and sharing contact info.

Stay bearded my friends.

RE: The Master Man Beard Thread
Have a questions for you bearded fellows.

I have around the same beard length Roosh did in 2014-2015.

After a recent small surgery I've lost a big chunk of density in my left sideburn. The surgery was 2 weeks ago and it doesn't look like there are any beard hairs growing in the area that was infected. It has healed very well, skin looks normal now... But no filling in of the sideburn. I have thick density, but it is noticeable.

Anyone gone through something similar? Can hair follicles die during a dermatological infection?

Alright I'm hopping on the beard wagon again. I tried earlier this year (for about a month) and it wasn't where I wanted it, so I gave up and shaved it out of frustration. Any tips/advice on growth, or am I pretty much doomed by my genetics?

Keep letting it grow. The longer is grows the better it looks. It may take a few months to grow thick and full. Then it becomes a part of you, a part of your life, a part of your soul.

While it's growing out use coconut oil and comb it in the same direction. Give it time and it will look better. Whether you shape it or not is up to you. Mine looks better on my face shaped but some people's look better as just letting it run wild.

Ok team, experienced beard member here but need some recommendations on shampoo or moisturizer. Any time I grow my beard out past two or so inches, it gets way too irritated and crunchy.

I have beard oil but its overpriced lemon scented nonsense.

What do you guys use to keep your man muff from becoming dried out?

Yep. Not a ton, mind. A nickel-size chunk of coconut oil melted in my hands and worked into my beard and beard-skin every day does just fine. My beard is about 3 1/2 inches long.

DarianFrey, was the surgery itself performed on your sideburn area, or elsewhere? Sometimes surgery can "shock" the body to a point where a condition called telogen effluvium can develop. It commonly affects the scalp, but can occur anywhere on the body, here's a link to help understand it:

http://www.americanhairloss.org/types_of...uviums.asp

Quote:Some hair loss conditions go by the name "effluvium," which means an outflow. Effluviums characteristically affect different phases of the hair growth cycle.
Hair follicles on the scalp do not continuously produce hair. They cycle through a growth stage that can last two or more years, then regress to a resting stage for up to two months before starting to grow a new hair fiber again. At any time on a healthy human scalp, about 80% to 90% of the hair follicles are growing hair. These active follicles are in what is called the anagen phase. That leaves up to 10% to 20% percent of scalp hair follicles in a resting state called telogen, when they don't produce any hair fiber.

Telogen Effluvium

Telogen effluvium (TE) is probably the second most common form of hair loss dermatologists see. It is a poorly defined condition; very little research has been done to understand TE. In essence though, TE happens when there is a change in the number of hair follicles growing hair. If the number of hair follicles producing hair drops significantly for any reason during the resting, or telogen phase, there will be a significant increase in dormant, telogen stage hair follicles. The result is shedding, or TE hair loss.

TE appears as a diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp, which may not be even all over. It can be a bit more severe in some areas of the scalp than others. Most often, the hair on top of the scalp thins more than it does at the sides and back of the scalp. There is usually no hair line recession, except in a few rare chronic cases.

The shed hairs are typically telogen hairs, which can be recognized by a small bulb of keratin on the root end. Whether the keratinized lump is pigmented or unpigmented makes no difference; the hair fibers are still typical telogen hairs.

People with TE never completely lose all their scalp hair, but the hair can be noticeably thin in severe cases. While TE is often limited to the scalp, in more serious cases TE can affect other areas, like the eyebrows or pubic region.

Whatever form of hair loss TE takes, it is fully reversible. The hair follicles are not permanently or irreversibly affected; there are just more hair follicles in a resting state than there should normally be.

There are three basic ways TE can develop.

1. There might be an environmental insult that "shocks" the growing hair follicles so much that they decide to go into a resting state for a while. This results in an increase in hair shedding and a diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp. This form of TE can develop rapidly and may be noticeable one or two months after receiving the shock. If the trigger is short lived, then the hair follicles will return to their growing state and start producing new hair fibers pretty quickly. This form of TE usually lasts less than six months and the affected individual has a normal scalp hair density again within a year.

2. The second form of TE develops more slowly and persists longer. The hair follicles may not all suddenly shed their hair fibers and enter a resting telogen state. Rather, the follicles may enter a resting state as they normally would, but instead of returning to a new anagen hair growing state after a month or two, they stay in their telogen state for a prolonged period of time.

This results in a gradual accumulation of hair follicles in a telogen state and progressively fewer and fewer anagen hair follicles are left growing hair. In this form of TE, there may not be much noticeable hair shedding, but there will be a slow thinning of the scalp hair. This form of TE is more likely to occur in response to a persistent trigger factor.

3. In a third type of TE, the hair follicles do not stay in a resting state but rather cycle through truncated growth cycles. When this happens, the individual experiences thin scalp hair and persistent shedding of short, thin hair fibers.

Causes of Telogen Effluvium: Stress and Diet

What are the trigger factors for TE? The short answer is many and varied. Classic short-term TE often happens to women soon after giving birth. Called postpartum alopecia, the sudden change in hormone levels at birth is such a shock to the hair follicles that they shut down for a while. There may be some significant hair shedding, but most women regrow their hair quickly.
Similarly, vaccinations, crash dieting, physical trauma such as being in a car crash, and having surgery can sometimes be a shock to the system and a proportion of scalp hair follicles go into hibernation. As the environmental insult passes and the body recovers, the TE subsides and there is new hair growth.

Some drugs may also induce TE, especially antidepressants. Often a switch to a different drug resolves the issue.

More persistent insults can result in more persistent TE. For example, a chronic illness may lead to TE. Arguably, the two most common problems are chronic stress and diet deficiency. Many dermatologists believe chronic stress can gradually exert a negative effect on hair growth and lead to persistent TE. Research with animal models has provided evidence to back up this claim. There does indeed seem to be a link between stress, a change in hair follicle biochemistry, and more hair follicles entering a telogen resting state.

Whether dietary problems are causing TE in North America is hotly argued among dermatologists. A lack of a mineral, vitamin, or essential amino acid can certainly cause TE, such as with people in third world countries where diets can be completely deficient in one or more nutrients. Animal experiments also provide supporting evidence.

In first world countries the average diet is rarely completely deficient in a particular vitamin or mineral. However, some dermatologists claim that with a reduction in red meat intake and a preference for vegetarian diets, some individuals are not getting a balanced intake of all the nutrients required for good hair and overall body growth. In particular, there are claims that women may be deficient in their iron intake. Why women specifically? Because women lose iron at regular intervals as a result of menstruation.

Some dermatologists believe that as we now eat less red meat, a key source of iron, some people are not eating enough iron and TE is the result. Other potential deficiencies of the modern North American diet -- such as a lack of zinc, amino acid L-lysine, or vitamins B6 and B12 -- have also been suggested to contribute to TE.

When dietary deficiencies are suspected, supplements may be taken. However, supplements themselves can cause problems. Our bodies can only process so much iron each day. At high doses, iron is toxic and this can itself cause hair loss. At really high doses, iron supplements will cause death. Vitamin A supplements can also cause a TE reaction in some individuals, as excessive vitamin A can also be toxic.

TE can occur on its own or as part of another disease. The early stages of androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness, AGA for short) are effectively TE. Early AGA is characterized by an increase in resting telogen hair follicles. Someone in the early stages of AGA may have up to 40% of their scalp hair follicles in telogen.

TE can also be a symptom of other conditions, such as inflammatory conditions like alopecia areata. Hair follicles are particularly sensitive to thyroid hormones and about one third of individuals with a thyroid disorder have TE. Exposure to toxins can also cause TE as one of many symptoms.

Treatments for Telogen Effluvium

How TE is treated depends on what has activated it. For short-term TE that can be linked to a trigger like surgery, the best response is to sit tight and wait for the follicles to recover of their own accord.

For persistent TE, if the causal factor can be isolated, then the best method is to remove it. For example, if stress is the problem, stress reduction is the long-term answer. If a dietary deficiency appears on a blood test, then supplements can work. A deficiency in thyroid hormones can be treated with hormone supplements.

However, often a specific causal factor cannot be identified. If this is the case, there are few treatment options. Most dermatologists resort to prescribing minoxidil, a direct hair growth stimulator. Minoxidil can work well for some individuals with TE, but if the underlying cause is still present, then minoxidil must be continued to block redevelopment of TE. With removal of the trigger, minoxidil use can be stopped.

Before leaving the subject of TE, here are a few words about natural hair shedding. Everyone sheds hair and you may see more hair shed at certain times of the year. Studies show that humans, at least in Northern Europe away from the equator, shed more hair in the fall and to a lesser extent in the spring.

This temporary increase in the number of telogen hair follicles and shed hair is probably due to changes in hormones in response to changes in daylight exposure. Studies in mink and other mammals show that daylight exposure significantly alters prolactin levels and that prolactin has a significant effect on molting. As with mink and other mammals, humans probably have much the same molting response. Such hair loss should be temporary.

Now I'm not a doctor, and as they say "the most dangerous part of self-treatment is self-diagnosis," so I'd recommend calling your dermatologist and asking for his opinion on it. If nothing else, it's always good to keep your medical provider aware of any side effects you're experiencing, especially from surgical procedures.

LeoneVolpe, thanks for the reply and research. I also had a hunch it might be TE (or something completely else, we'll never know).

Anyway, my sideburn is back to full density. Took 2 months. Have a cool little scar just below my ear if I ever decide to have a clean shave, which will probably never happen. All's good!

RE: The Master Man Beard Thread
Some of you have asked about using Rogaine. I will share with you my experience.

I have started using Rogaine for my beard in September of last year and have used it for 4-5 months. I'd apply the foam to my face every night before going to sleep. I had a patchy beard and after a month I started growing a full beard. Around January I had a complete full beard. Everybody noticed how my beard changed and attributed it to my age... I was impressed about how fast hair was growing. It really works.

The downside of using Rogaine besides the cost is that you will experience growth of hair in other areas of your body. Personally, hair started growing on my chest, eyebrows, a little bit on my neck and in my nose! This is a normal downside to using Rogaine, I believe the same thing happens when you use it for your hair.

I also noticed something weird when I started using Rogaine, my pee was darker and had little particles in it. The little particles freaked me out, it had never happened to me before Rogaine but I continued using it anyway.

I stopped using Rogaine in January of last year because the cons outweighed the pros. The beard didn't really look good on me, it was way too curly add to that the cost of Rogaine and the unknown side effects it was no no for me.

After I stopped taking Rogaine my beard remained the same until October of this year, my beard is once again becoming more patchy. You don't really loose hair after a while.

I hope this helps!

No problem, they both take time to manifest...as does anything worth having. Just keep working towards your goals.

I dont have the gainz to trade right now.... I've lost like 5kgs over the past few months or so. Got sick and have been traveling around and my gym schedule has been less then desirable. But thats ok cause I know where I wanna be and how to get there and its gonna happen!

Would love to find out why the fuck my beard is red in the lower area of chin and below. No gingers in my family and almost no gingers in the fucking region. I can understand why the beard is blond below the lips, why it's black on the neck and why it's brown on the cheeks but the ginger part will haunt me forever.

I have been growing beard for 3 years now.

All so-called "beard oils" is an overpriced hipster shit and you shouldn't waste your money on them. As our previous friend said coconut oil is good. I have tried many different natural oils and in my experience, bitter almond oil works the best for me.

Keep letting it grow. The longer is grows the better it looks. It may take a few months to grow thick and full. Then it becomes a part of you, a part of your life, a part of your soul.

While it's growing out use coconut oil and comb it in the same direction. Give it time and it will look better. Whether you shape it or not is up to you. Mine looks better on my face shaped but some people's look better as just letting it run wild.

Every now and then for a 1-2 weeks I dont shave to see if there's marked change in Density.. and I realize not so much.. So, I let it go.
I'm one of those guys whose naturally not hairy..

Althought I am thinking about the 5 o clock shade.. and how to maintain that.. I read that electric clippers with a "certain number" attachment can help maintain that.

I have started using Rogaine for my beard in September of last year and have used it for 4-5 months. I'd apply the foam to my face every night before going to sleep. I had a patchy beard and after a month I started growing a full beard. Around January I had a complete full beard. Everybody noticed how my beard changed and attributed it to my age... I was impressed about how fast hair was growing. It really works.

The downside of using Rogaine besides the cost is that you will experience growth of hair in other areas of your body. Personally, hair started growing on my chest, eyebrows, a little bit on my neck and in my nose! This is a normal downside to using Rogaine, I believe the same thing happens when you use it for your hair.

I also noticed something weird when I started using Rogaine, my pee was darker and had little particles in it. The little particles freaked me out, it had never happened to me before Rogaine but I continued using it anyway.

I stopped using Rogaine in January of last year because the cons outweighed the pros. The beard didn't really look good on me, it was way too curly add to that the cost of Rogaine and the unknown side effects it was no no for me.

After I stopped taking Rogaine my beard remained the same until October of this year, my beard is once again becoming more patchy. You don't really loose hair after a while.

I hope this helps!

At one point I did wonder if there was a natural way to stimulate Density.. But Im not a big fan of chemical substances that mess with your body.

The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.
