It’s the most hairy time of the year!

October 29, 2018

It’s hard to believe that we’re nearing the end of the year. Soon it’ll be time to carve the turkey and string up those holiday lights—but first, you need to grow your hair. Yes, you read that right—it’s time to let it grow because No-Shave November starts this week!

No-Shave November is a month-long campaign to raise awareness and funding for cancer prevention, research and education. The Prevent Cancer Foundation® is proud to be one of three benefiting organizations. Last year, you got hairy and helped raise $1.76 million!

In honor of No-Shave November, we wanted to share some tips to help you look good and feel good all month long.

  • Keep it clean: Just because you’re putting down the razor doesn’t mean you have to put down your favorite hair cleaning products. A little water, shampoo and conditioner a few times a week can go a long way!
  • Resist the itch: We know itching is the worst, but scratching or touching your beard too much can lead to skin irritation. Keep your skin feeling nice and avoid the itch by using moisturizer. You can find beard moisturizer at your local pharmacy or beauty store.
  • Comb it out: Use a regular comb or beard brush to prevent tangles and keep your hair growing in the same direction so things look neat and tidy.
  • Oil it up: Beard oil is the perfect way to accentuate your new hairy masterpiece. Try dabbing a little oil on to keep your face fresh and your beard looking fine.

If you’re participating in No-Shave November, we’d love to see your progress throughout the month. Share your photos on social media with #LetItGrow and #PreventCancer and we’ll share some of them from our social media accounts! Follow No-Shave November on Instagram for tips and giveaways all month long.
