Been awhile, but I'm back baby. My beard is almost as long as it was the first time around, think I have about 1-2 more weeks to hit the spot. This time around I have barely used any beard oil. In fact I am just trying not to think about it at all and it it going way faster. They were right though, your beard grows way faster in the summer compared to the winter. I think it has something to do with you water intake.
