Help the beard itches it itches so badly!!!
So I decided to get my friend the ultimate birthday present, I am growing a mustache for her, actually I am growing a beard right now and for her birthday I am going to shave it into a mustache.... but I digress.

I am about a week in and the itching is driving me crazy. I usually don't wear a beard as I can never get past the first week or the "itchy stage" it just itches so much that I shave it off. But this is a birthday present I am giving someone, so what would you guys recommend for getting past this itchy stage... what should I do. Are there any beard wearers out there with some advice.

Is she looking for a moustache ride or something?

It's just something you have to deal with. You get used to it pretty quick.

Try not think about it. It feeds on fear...

It has also been feeding on my beer foam. I had a Guinness last night and it was all over the foam.

Sounds silly but, have you tried conditioner?

If you are prone to acne you might not want to try it tho.

Conditioner. Use it. Not only is hair conditioner by far the best shaving cream, it really helps with beard management. Rub it in there thick and let it sit while you shower.

Other than that... adopt a thoughtful look and scratch slowly so it looks like you are pondering the universe or some other very important topic.

ummm. i dont know, my beard has never itched before. You should probably go to the clinic! Keep your beard away from hookers!

I've never tried to grow a beard but my father has to use Head and Shoulders on his breard so the conditioner suggestion makes perfect sence to me...
