Septembeard: Dapper Dave Cash guest post


I'm finishing off my #Septembeard feature with a guest post from another male blogger. 

Dapper Dave Cash is a relatively new face on the Irish blogging scene but he has wasted no time in leaving his mark with a shortlising in the Best Fashion Blogger  in the Blog Awards Ireland 2015. He kindly featured me a little while back in his Style Stories series so I was happy to be able to return the favour with a guest post.

I'll hand it over to Dave, who describes his own beard-growing journey.

Hi guys,
First of all, I would like to thank Ian for having me as a guest blogger for #Septembeard. I think it is a great concept and I happily jumped at the chance to take part. I always had an appreciation for beards and when I knew I could eventually grow one, I just went and did it.

I have had my beard for around a year and a half. It would have been longer only I shaved it off for my stepsons communion. It was a big mistake and my fiancee agreed about two days later (it was her idea to shave it off in the first place!). Thankfully, it didn't take too long to grow back and from what I could remember I didn't suffer from what I call "the itch". That was what always stopped me from growing a beard in the first place.
I had tried numerous times previously to grow one, but as I said "the itch" set in. This would drive me mad and the only thing that would ease it, would be to have a shave. If I had discovered face scrubs back then, I probably would have had a beard long before then. My beard was never going to be viking length because, one I don't think I can grow it that long and two it wouldn't be appropriate for work.
My grooming tips for my own beard are, I usually trim it using an electric razor. I use this one by Babyliss. It set me back around €35 in my local Tesco.

I found it quite good to use and you can adjust the length which is handy. I usually trim it about once a week sometimes twice depends on if I have an event on or not. I use a regular razor like a mach 3 trim the edges at the bottom of my beard. This does require a steady hand and a good eye. 
To keep my beard soft, I just use a good face scrub and moisturiser. I haven't used any beard-related products yet, but I am keen to do so as I am curious to see if there is any difference. With the abundance of beards all around us it isn't hard to find a product review or a blog post in general about something beard related!

Once again, I would like to thank Ian for asking me to take part in #Septembeard. I really enjoyed it and it is a great way to celebrate beards and their all round awesomeness! I hope you guys enjoyed my guest post and I hope to see you guys again soon!
Many thanks to Dave for taking part and I hope you all enjoyed my month of beardy blogging.
