Growing my beard back

So I had a beard for over 10 years until covid hit. As somebody who works in a hospital and sees covid patients some times, I had to shave to wear an N95 correctly.

Well, now that rates are dropping and I'm vaccinated, I'm able to grow my thick beard back. The problem? I've learned to love shaving through wet shaving over the past year.

I wet shave my head with a DE (rex ambassador) and enjoy that. I'll be shaving my neck and keeping my beard lined up. Let's see how this goes. I shaved my head yesterday so today I just went after my neck growth.

Well been only DE shaving my neck and head. One great and frustrating part about neck shaving, you will know a great razor from an okay one. Irrigation, smoothness etc.
 
I have a full goatee but I look so much better with a beard.

I used to have a short box beard, but really wanted to shave more again, but my SO really loves beards. So I decided to go with an extended goatee as a compromise since it's just a box beard without the sideburns. Now I can shave most of my cheeks and neck but still have a short, trimmed beard she likes. You might want to check out what beard styles appeal to you, and shorter, styled beards are more in style these days than the lumberjack beards that were popular a few years back.

There's always a happy middle ground!
 
I just started growing my beard back this past holiday weekend, it was off about a year. I have had a beard, moustache or goatee since 1976 always change things up, my wife loves a moustache only for the most part

You can always just shave your neck too. I have a beard but love wet shaving, so I just keep my neck shaved up. You can absolutely enjoy shaving without actually being clean shaven.

I did that too for a bit but found I got lazy with the shaving and would only shave my neck every three days or so. :blushing:

I've had a beard since getting out of the Marines in 2003. I still love wet shaving and use DEs and SRs to shape my cheeks and take care of my neck. I don't shave everyday usually. After so many years of shaving at least once, sometimes twice a day in the service, I shave when I have time to enjoy the process or when I absolutely need to. Grow your beard and enjoy your shaves.
 
I shaved my beard last year too. Everyone including my mom was disappointed. No complements from anyone. I grew it back in the fall and plan on keeping it for a while. Now if only I could get my wife to cook...
