If you are a regular reader of our beard blog you'll have come to notice by now that I have a rather strange obsession about beards, and not just my own either. I can't help but admire the hard work and dedication shown by any beardsmen when I spy one on the highstreet, or at the local store, or anywhere else for that matter.
Today, I wanted to do something I do not usually do all that often, and try talk about the bad points about beards. So, let us discuss 4 Rather Annoying Things About Our Beards...
Admit it, it's true, no matter how extra careful you might be, and how slow you might go, you still end up splatting your face fuzz with crumbs, spillages and everything in between from your breakfast, lunch or tea.
Of course, you can be extra careful to lower the chances of making a damn right mess, but in all honesty, it is almost impossible to not get a little food caught up in there every now and again. Just remember, napkins are pocket sized and can be a real saver in certain sticky situations.
BAD BEARD DAYS HAPPEN, AND ARE FRIGGIN FRUSTRATING!
If you have a good lady in your life you have probably heard her meltdowns in the mirror on some occasions when their 'hair isn't working' as they cry they are having what they like to call a 'bad hair day.'
Now, until I grew out a beard I never fully understood what my wife's problem was, hair is just hair, right? I mean, it is not going to work out fine one day then go to pot the next, WRONG!
Bad hair days are real, they are ugly and if you sport facial hair of a certain length the chances are you have probably had your fair share of 'bad beard days' as well.
Mine usually likes to kink right up on the side I've been sleeping on the previous night. And a hot shower, a good scrub and a handy helping of beard balm won't even budge this bitch.
I have now come to learn that bad days happen, even for our face fuzz, so rather then sweat about it, I try my best to think of a brighter tomorrow, where my beard and face can live in peace and harmony once more.
THE BEARDLESS THINK US BEARDSMEN ALL LOOK THE SAME!
If you have facial hair, your beardless friends have probably said you like like a dozen or so other beardsmen already. Because apparently, us beardos all look pretty much the same.
I don't see this myself, although I have been approached by complete strangers on the street, at the bar, in the store and just about everywhere else, where people suggest I look the image of the singer Rag'n'Bone man.
I'm not offended by this in any way shape or form, the guys has amazing talents and I love his music, it's just that I don't see it myself, although everyone else likes to keep repeatedly telling me otherwise.
IT CAN BE A TIRESOME TASK TO UPKEEP THAT FUZZY FACE!
Whoever first said that a man only grows a beard because he is simply 'too lazy to shave' have either never had a beard in their life, or has no experience of a man who does.
Taking good care of ones facial forest is no easy task, it takes a whole lot of precious time, a heap of love and TLC, and a handy helping of a good beard oil and balm, and that is just the tip of the iceberg!
So, there goes another jam packed week of blogs here at 'The Beard Struggle'. As always we encourage our readers to take a few moments and leave us your thoughts and feedback in the comments section you'll find provided below. We love reading back through your comments and reply where we can!
