The beard is itchy during the first weeks since when we shaved it, we essentially create small spears on the tip of each hair. So—until the time that they are long enough and fold on themselves—they create an unpleasant tingling sensation. You will notice that this feeling is accentuated at the neck level because of the tilt and angle of the head.

During the first two weeks of growth, you should not use beard shampoo—since the beard is still too short. To clean it, we suggest using a natural beard soap bar that contains no chemical irritant like sodium sulfate. A multitude of choices is available to you regarding natural beard soap bars.
Once the itching phase is ended—after 3 to 4 weeks of growth—your beard will have a rather messy look. Those wishing to have a beard with a natural look will continue to let it grow without ever touching it.

When it comes time to give some style and sculpt his beard, the margin of error with the razor is indeed present. Sometimes you are too ambitious and—without doing it on purpose—you remove more hair than desired. In this case, many people would be tempted to shave everything and start over.

Regarding beard's grooming and cleaning, it is strongly suggested to rinse it thoroughly under the shower and apply beard oil—after a month of growth—on a daily basis.

If ever an unhealthy envy going through your mind and mad temptations invades you and would lead you to think to slave away or shave your beard—remember an unwritten rule which states that you must take the time to think well about it before taking a decision—Each month of growth equals 1 day of questioning about shaving your beard. Thus said, if you have a 6 months beard, you will challenge yourself for a week before committing the irreparable.
