Beard Diary #01

Didn’t really know what to write about today so I thought I’d just put some sort of update about my adventure in beard growing. On the 3rd of April, I received my shipment of Minoxidil. I’ve been applying it daily for about 2 weeks now and I’m not sure if it’s working yet. I’m definitely feeling its effects – dry skin (I actually get dandruff when I scratch my beard haha) and my face bloated up a bit initially. After a few days, I decided that I’d cut down my intake from 2ml/day to 1ml/day for my body to get acclimatized to it. Next week I’ll probably go back to 2ml/day again.

As for the hair on my face, there’s nothing significant but I’m definitely seeing the growth of some new hairs on spots where there wasn’t any hair previously. Literally less than 20 new hairs, so it’s going to take a lot more time to grow. Hopefully I have hairs waiting to come out in the spots that matter.

Due to the nature of the chemical, it is important to make sure your hands are clean after you’re done applying it on your face. I guess it’s so that you don’t accidentally apply it on other parts of your body or on other people if you touch them. Imagine giving some girl you dislike a beard (haha).

I guess this is a pretty pointless update, but I thought it would be nice for me to have some dates down and a reference point that I can look back on in the future. It’s still too early to tell if it’s going to work or not, but I’m hopeful. In other news, I think I’m going to grow out my hair again. There are no rules on how I need to look like for my job, yay for flexibility.
