Jack is back to give another weekly update on his yeard growth. He's about two weeks into his growth right now. Today he wants to talk about the awkward phase. Let's address the elephant in the room, the background is way different than his last two videos. That's because he's finally filming in the studio here in the office. From now on, all his videos will take place here, and will have a much better production value.
So let's get into it. What is the awkward phase? This the part of in your growth that happens around 2-3 weeks. It's not quite stubble anymore and not quite a beard yet. It's just kind of hair on your face. Some people enjoy this part, but for other, it's a nightmare. There are a few issues commonly face at this stage.
Most guys really don't like how it looks. You'll notice it won't have a large amount of shape. All the definition is gone, and a blob at this point. There are three things to keep in mind as you work through this phase; time, patience, and commitment.
With any big project you take on in your life, time is of the essence. Good things come to those who wait. Which leads to the second point. You have to be patient with your beard. Within that first month, it might not look as great as you want. You won't have a great beard overnight. And that leads to the last point. You have to commit to your beard. You'll get some comments about your beard, but you already decided this is something you want to do. Stick with it, and those people will turn around. It's your body, so do what makes you feel most comfortable and confident.
The itchiness is a huge deal. It's pretty common for people who have never grown a beard beyond this point. You're gonna want to get into Beard Oil more as your beard grows.
