You get used to it. A good conditioner works wonders as well.

Grow it back, beards are cool. I keep growing one but have to shave it off for work. I need a beard friendly profession.

I agree, beards are gorgeous, and yours suited you most well,Sir.
Maybe the wife wisely thought it may make you irresistible to other women and so encouraged it's removal to save you the bother of continually having to fight them off... :wink:

Nah, she hated the scratching when I nuzzled her.

Fret ye not Thrud, I use conditioner to shave with, I eschew shaving foam as it dries out my face and conditioner helps the razor glide and keeps face moist.

I had big comedy red beard for a while, seven or eight months of growth. I used to condition it and then play with it's fluffy splendidnes. Sadly I looked stupid with it that hefty so I will have to wait until I am old and able to get away with big comedy beard.

I just wish my stupid hair would hurry up and go a bit balder rather than this stupid fluffy thin crud that doesn't do anything. I want the Mick Aston look.

I think you look better partially obscured.

Tell the wife the beard gets softer if you keep it and trim it (and use conditioner)

Gee thanks Fox ;-)

Partially obscured eh, hey why not just suggest I wear a paper bag over my head, Mr Adonis ;-)

Because I don't think I can provenance that for the periods you re-enact.

Ah, but I can provenance paper hats and paper packages, so how about a paper hat that is too large that happens to fall over my face? But without the heretical writing of course.

Conditioner on a beard :shock: , that is probably the gayest thing I’ve heard this year. Doesn’t it make it smell and your food taste like soap? Doesn't it alter the filtration properties? Doesn't your chick think you've been kissing some one else? Does it attract bees?

Possibly is, no, no, no and no.

Just makes it fluffy. I have no need at the moment though as it's a sensible size.

Indeed it does. Thrud

Mine is currently down to goatee level but does improve for the sake of a bit of conditioner when available. makes them silky.

That reminds me mine is in need of a trim.

Gregory, though not seen you without the beard I think it rather suits you :)
