Since around the beginning of September, actually appearing shortly after the competition in New Orleans too, my Beard is becoming noticeably more wavy. It also seems to be getting thicker, much thicker. When I started growing this beard out and it got to a few inches, I could tell it was following the curve of my chin, down. and it got longer, it followed by jaw toward my neck, then suddenly curled straight out again. Oh my God, this drove me absolutely batty.
I went on a search for straightening shampoos and conditioners to battle this beast of a curl/wave I had. After many months of using straighteners, combs, and blow drying, I’d all but gotten rid of that wave! Hallelujah! I was so happy, my beard was looking longer without the wave. Well as my beard grew longer, I stopped needing to use the straighteners because the Beards own weight was pulling the wave out. Thank you Mother Nature!
Now here in early November, I’m not only watching that ‘wave’ come back in full force, but also a perfect line of hair from my mustache towards my ear on the left side of my face is making a curl/wave toward my left ear. It’s a rather long line too. lol omg hahahaha On the right side of my face, my Beard is doing something different too, but I can’t tell what yet.
Here after 6 years, I thought all my beard would do now is get longer, but alas, the ever evolving Beard has a mind of it’s own and is taking it’s own path yet again. This time I’m not fighting it though. My Beard is about 14 inches long (measuring from the bottom lip) and I really don’t want to put my Beard through that stress again, of the straightening products, plus all that combing and heat from the blow dryer. Now’s the time to let it do it’s thing, after 6 years, it’s moving into another phase.
