hi, I'm a first time beard grower... I tried 'dead sea water - mineral body lotion' by Ahava - it worked really well, I'm down to just a dull irritation, although I'm told you can only get it from hair spas.
Beards are great, but they can make you look like a weirdo..

Re: Guys with beards: How long does the itchy phase last?
LOL I used to hide my stash in my beard.....
 Quoting: RememberThis


Dude I am drunk so I can't tell if your joking or serious? Did you really hide your stash in your beard? If so thats hillarious and would make a great scene in a cheech and chong comedy or sumthing. haha

Oh and OP yes it's exciting growing a beard for the first time. There's something really manly about it and it's a little bit of a ritual or intiation in a weird way.

It should be gone within 2 weeks, after that it will itch from time to time because your just not used to it. When growing your beard do not trim or cut any of it until after a month. You go through a weird stage but trimming or cutting it seems to stunt it's growth.

Usually about a week, to a week and a half. I've found that if I brush it in the morning, I wont the itchy feeling the rest of the day.

Splash a little rubbing alcohol on it. That will help.

I've decided to grow mine, but its been a week w/o shaving and its itchy as hell. How long does this last?

Dude I have a massive beard.

Your beard itches because you need to wash it better.

Shampoo and condition it almost everyday or it will make your skin itch!

Re: Guys with beards: How long does the itchy phase last?
I grow a beard mainly because I can't be bothered to shave. It starts itching at about a week and then stops at about 2 weeks.

However I always shave it off completely around that point as at that length it becomes obvious that it's ginger. :-(

Man up and just ignore the itch. It will go away. I grow a beard every winter and the only downside is when I motorboat my wife, I don't get a good boob to face contact.

Re: Guys with beards: How long does the itchy phase last?
Beard Balm of some sort to ease the itch during the initial phase of growth. Beard shampoo/conditioner and a good beard oil will help with brittle and overly sheddy beards once you reach "full beard".

Also, be aware that (at least for me) there are two "itchy" stages. First is the immediate itch of the first couple weeks. Once the hair gets long enough to lie flat against the skin, this should go away. Second, is the point at which the beard hair gets just long enough to start to naturally curl. This is usually the longer "itch period" for me. It will last as long as it takes for the hair to get long enough that the curled ends no longer reach the skin.

Again, decent beard shampoo/conditioner and beard oil can help soften and tame the hairs so that the irritation is either significantly reduced or eliminated. Just make sure that when oiling, you don't overdo it. Also, using a beard brush to apply and spread the oil helps as, if you work the oil all the way down to the skin, it will help exfoliate as well.
