No Shave November...or as some of the guys call it "Amateur Beard Month", has grown insanely popular over the years.
Now we use the term Amateur Beard Month in the most respectful of ways..in fact, many Beardsmen grew their first beard because of No Shave November. Once they realized how great a beard is, they never looked back! So we look at this month as a way to raise awareness for mens health, and also a great way to recruit new bearded brothers!
The goal of No Shave November is to “grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free” says the organization.
“Donate the money you usually spend on shaving and grooming for a month to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
For those of you growing your first beard, this guide will cover everything to expect along your way to greatness. I also hope we convince you to keep it growing well into next year!
No Shave November Ultimate Guide
November 1: Stash the razor
Pretty obvious isn't it? It's called No Shave November for a reason!
You really should be donating your razors for good in our opinion, as we advise November 1 should be your Beard Independence Day!
Days 1-7: Bring on the scruff.
A beard must be earned and you must show patience and perseverance to be deserving of it.
This is when most will notice the beard itch. Resist the urge to scratch or shave.
Applying Beard Oil daily will eliminate the beard itch you suffer from and make your bearding experience a much better one.

Many men’s beards are coming to form and filling in nicely. You should begin to feel the confidence purging from your beard at this point.
Follicularly challenged may not be having quite the same experience but at least you’re trying. If this is you, we recommend taking Beard Boost, guaranteed to help you grow a better beard.

Prepare for all the women in your family to not understand and remark as to how you look like a much nicer 'boy' when you’re "clean" shaven.
Respectfully remind them that you are a Man, Men have beards, and politely ask for more stuffing.
The Men in your family will agree, ask for more stuffing, and continue complimenting your beard.
(For the Beardateurs) This is when most will strategically begin planning how to execute the sad destruction of their beard while showcasing the different styles they can create.
Dec 1: Shaving Commences
Although we STRONGLY recommend against this, many will ditch the thigh tickler and shave in a creepy stache.
You will have had your new beard for a month at this point, and you've surely gotten a sense for how powerful a beard truly is.
From the support from other bearded brothers, to the attention and compliments you'll get from complete strangers.
So why would you shave?
You shouldn't be shaving the other 11 months anyways... Save that money and donate it to cancer research!!!
