Hello my Bearded Soldiers, greetings it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all beards and flag bearer of all beards.
My beloved’s good morning, I hope you’re well and in the process of looking after your money maker, your beard!
Brothers remember one thing, I know it’s a bit of a grim one … we all are gonna die one day and everything will leave you.
Your youth, your hair, your teeth but not your beard! (Unless you shave it of course)
So with that in mind, you might get an idea as to why I hold the beard in such high esteem. For today’s issue of bearded discussion, is the issue of the curly beard.
I might not have mentioned this on previous entries, but I have a real love for curly hair.
Some of our Arab beards are able to have their hair curly, but this is in general seen as a given for our African Caribbean brothers to have curly hair.
Now being aware of this knowledge, one might be surprised as to why then am I going cut a frustrated figure in this regard. For a man who is bald, hair would be a dream, but me having curly hair? that’s like Eutopia!
In that land, naturally I would be 6 ft4 with the girl that I have always dreamed of. Well back into the world of reality, I am 5 ft 10 – bald ( but made it stylish) of a decent build and have managed to get the partner in crime too.
One lesson brothers, the girl you dreamed of? Doesn’t exist? Rather it’s about the girl you want to dream with. Alhamdulillah the one who gave me my beard has smiled on me *metaphorically speaking* like he always does
So why is the curly beard such a bad thing then? It’s simple … I am not sure how many of you brothers are familiar with the Cow’s lick?
That brothers is when your hair annoyingly and rebelliously flicks up no matter how much you try to tame it. The solution?
Well that’s easy you have to trim it carefully, p.s if you aren’t a skill bearded craftsmen then don’t try this at home!
If you’re like me, then your beard will naturally curl out. The cure for this is to make sure you look after your beard and keep it well trimmed.
Remember brothers TLB! Tender loving of beard for those of you who don’t know. It’s over and out from your Bearded Captain, stay blessed -stay beard!
