I know most of you think this is another pubic hair thing but it's not.

I'm trying to grow a beard and the hair on my chin seems to be comming along.

Right now it is pretty long but it doesn't seem to be growing because some days it somehow gets shorter and some days it gets longer.

I've never shaved before. So would shaving stop whatever is happening and let it grow properly?

Any sensible help would be great.
Thanks in advance

I suggest shaving it really clean, so it should all be even. Then, when it grows evenly, get your beard to ZZ Top status. It's that or nothing man.

Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.

I shave every few weeks, I'm 16 in 4 days, so it comes in a little faster than before.

But I shave so it'll grow back thicker and stuff. I want facial hair, I think I'll look good with it.

anyways, w/e u do dont shave your pubs. my gf made me shave mine, and i got a little bit of razor burn. i thought that bitch had given me a std or something so i wasted a good $70 going to the doctor, only to find out that it was in fact razor burn. it also scared the shit out of me.

You'll have to shave ALOT of times before it gets thick and strong enough to be a good beard. I mean, i've shaved half a hundred times, and i have to shave every three days, and it still isn't more than fuss when it grows too long. Which looks way stupid.

I really didn't..is that the first thing you think about when shaving?


Anywho, is your 'beard' just random long brown hairs or is it coarse and manly..because you'll look stupid with a silky smooth beard, that's not manly at all..
Just a few tips for beard growing:
a)Talk about the beard in 3rd person. eg, yeah, me and the beard are going to the movies.
b)Don't wash it. Girls love smelly beards.
c) Get some crumbs in there, chicks dig that. Preferably cornbread crumbs

Anywho, good luck dude.

Just shave it. Like everyone else has said in time it'll be awesome. However I have blonde facial hair. It used to be really whispy, but then it got thicker and now its just white. It looks ridiculous.
