Stratopwn3r;5545557I'm in the awkward stage between prepubescent peach fuzz and actually having facial hair. When I do finally get facial hair, I'm gonna grow an epic SF beard.
Every man has to grow a PROPER beard in his life to see what it looks like and prove you're manly and all that jazz.
I want to grow a proper olden time moustache for the lulz but get far too embrasssed even with a little one.
I think the whole beards are manly thing is overrated. They can hide sagging jowls, blemishes and if not kept neat, make you look like a disheveled transient (Alan Moore, Zach Galifianakis, Joaquin Phoenix), and Chuck Norris always looked his best when his beard was at it's thinnest.
There's a lot to be said for showing your face, especially if you have no blemishes, well shaped cheekbones, a chiseled jaw and no sagging under the chin.
You can usually tell right away just from a headshot if a guy's overweight if he doesn't have a thick beard. They were popular in biblical times, not so much now.
That said, I can't imagine a guy using hair removal creams or estrogen just because he doesn't like shaving or having facial hair. Neither solution seems worthwhile.
I'm caught between not wanting facial hair and having skin that's easily irritated by shaving. My solution is to shave only every few days and use a high quality lotion with silk protein before I shave.
Tricorder;5545804Start taking estrogen hormone. It will help you with your facial hair problem and you'll eventually grow a nice pair of boobs. It's a win-win situation. :lulz: Your voice might change too, though, so don't be surprised if one day you develop an ability to sing soprano. =p[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Granyaski;5545821]I want to grow a proper olden time moustache for the lulz but get far too embrasssed even with a little one.
I have a friend who tried to grow a mustache awhile back, but it just looked like an eyebrow on his upper lip. We had to basically to use force to get him to shave it off.
Silberio;5545175I found this[/quote]Might be worth a look.
Silberio;5545175I'm eager to be able to grow a mustache just to play Charlie Chaplin or Hitler in front of the mirror[/quote]Help you need. :nodding:
Freyr;5545194If such a (safe) product ever did come out it's be hugely popular. I'd be able to stop buying new blades for my razor, and over the years i'm sure it'd pay for itself even if it was very expensive.[/QUOTE]If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd say that such a product does exist, though shaving companies are paying off this other company, for if said product was released, shaving businesses would go to shit.
>Omen<;5545199I couldn't help but notice you were the one that posted about long distance cycling too.[/quote]Your a very observant young man, aren't you? =p
>Omen<;5545199Back when I did some criterium racing I tried shaving my legs like a lot of road racers do for cooling, aerodynamics, and resistance to infection after a crash.[/QUOTE]The trick here is not to crash. ;) I think I'll be leaving my legs well alone though, haven't got a problem with them yet.
[QUOTE=Mr. Matt;5545206]Anyway. Most men outside of adolescence have to shave daily. It's a fact of life. Women get periods, fungal infections and pregnancy, and men have to shave. It's a fair trade if you ask me!
Quite the... comparison?
[QUOTE=Crazy Wolf;5545505]Waxing would also provide for longer amounts of time between hair removal.
Wonder if a Lighter would be any use..... :lookaround:

Would you mind if I passed this offer up? =p
[QUOTE=Silberio;5545175]I wonder why you'd like to kill yer hair...[QUOTE=Inyri Forge;5545222]On a related but side note, though, facial hair is sexy. Why would you want to get rid of it?
My problem is I cannot grow a proper beard. The hair just doesn't come out enough to warrant it being there. The beards that Chocu1a posted (thanks for that by the way) ~ I'd never be able to achieve anything like that because it doesn't grow.
My beard grows in patches, I can grow a moustache (which irritates the fuck out of my upper lip) and an cheap version of a goatee, but that's about as far as it'll grow, and it doesn't look anything spectacular. I either need to get rid of it, or try some miracle growth.
You know what I despise? I absolutely wish I could kill Neckbeard Syndrome. I suffer from it and have to shave the neck area like every week or so (I'm lucky in that my facial hair doesn't grow very fast, though that sucks when trying to grow a beard). My facial hair is also kind of retarded. One would think, looking at my dad and the males in my extended family on both sides, that I would have a comfortably thick beard. Truth is it's really really thin and looks sorta dumb due to that. It's at that awkward, ragged middle point between thick and thin where it just doesn't look good as either one of the two. Haha.

When I grow the rest of my beard out I don't get a soul patch. There are several theories as to why.

Your chin is clearly in touch with it's feminine side.

I find buying new blades for a razor to be a huge rip-off and was one of my main reasons for buying an electric razor. The electric razor may not get as close a shave but I'm also not spending a large chunk of cash on replacement blades. The only time I use a non-electric razor for shaving is when I shave my head, but doing so with a normal razor wears out the blade even quicker than shaving my face so I do that less often now as well.
I don't shave all that often and tend to stick to the beard-trimmer on my electric razor to bring it down to a respectable level. I used to always get a bad reaction on my neck whenever I shaved, but I guess my skin has just gotten used to it over time because it's not so much of a problem anymore.

You can "shave" with a lighter. I would not advise it.

More importantly, you can shave someone else with a lighter and some flatulence. :nodding:
