This article is a light read on my observations from growing a moustache. It’s the second moustache I’ve grown, but my first horsheshoe moustache. My first moustache was unceremoniously shaved off 3 years ago on account of being too itchy after 3 weeks. It seemed like I was spending all my time getting the hairs out of my mouth. I’ve learned a bit about grooming overall since then, and specifically about facial whiskers in the past year. Now that I’m significantly more involved in my grooming, I took the time to research growing a moustache and read some useful articles, notably some written by Douglas Smythe. As suggested, applying aloe vera gel, is a simple and inexpensive solution to eliminate itchiness. I don’t mind brushing/combing/petting my whiskers now.
