These tips may help some men, but the captain of Bearded Villains Indiana, Josh Tolen says genetics plays a large role also.

“There’s not one product that’s going to make your beard grow. A lot of it has to do with your genes, too. What’s your background? What’s your ethnicity?”

“It just depends on who you are,” Tolen said.

No-Shave November is a movement to raise awareness about cancer.  The idea is to forgo visits to the barber shop and bask in all things hairy. Then the money that would have been spent on grooming and visits to the barber is donated to educate about cancer, save lives and give aid to cancer patients.

No-Shave November is not only for men. Ladies can drop their razors, too, and let their leg hair grow free.
