Ready for No Shave November?

No Shave November is here, and if you want to participate, you need to prep your beard or mustache. Read on for some tips on how to prep and maintain your beard or mustache so you can help raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer this November.

Some may consider it a joking matter when men just let their facial hair grow free for the month of November, but it’s no joke. The real reason behind growing out your beard or mustache in November is to show others that you are participating to help raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. Although it is “No Shave” November, you can still participate and receive trims from your barber and not be shamed for it. In fact, trimming and maintaining your beard or mustache promotes healthy growth. The more facial hair you grow, the more awareness you can spread this No Shave November!

Beards – If you are prepping to grow out your beard for No Shave November, you are usually going for a full beard. But even if you aren’t, you can still benefit from these prepping tips. First, assess how much hair you already have and get it evened out by your barber. This will give you a fresh start as well as the opportunity to observe throughout the month how trimming and maintaining your beard can positively impact its growth. To promote growth and maintain a healthy beard, you should invest in a beard wash. Beard wash prevents your beard hair from getting oily or dried out, and facial hair is more likely to grow when the skin is kept clean and moisturized. You can keep your skin and facial hair moisturized by using a beard oil you can find right here at Dapper Gents. It’s also worth mentioning that to make your beard appear fuller in between visits with your barber, use a beard comb.

Mustache – When prepping your mustache, as with your beard, you need to assess how much hair you already have. If you already have some growth, you should let your barber even it out in order to start off with a clean, even mustache for No Shave November. As your mustache begins to grow out, you will be able to notice the areas where it appears to be sparse. But no worries! You can make your mustache appear fuller by combing it regularly. Once your mustache gets long enough for a trim, it is the perfect time to tell your barber at Dapper Gents exactly how you would like it to be shaped. As with your beard, maintaining your mustache with regular trims will promote hair growth. It also allows you to obtain your desired shape for your mustache in no time.
