Why did my beard growth slow down?
« on: June 28, 2010, 07:27:27 PM »
This is a serious question and I almost didn't post it since it sounds so crazy. I turned 62 this month and to celebrate it at the beginning of the month I stopped doing the last few remaining drugs that were messing up my life. That would include caffeine, nose spray, aspirin and junk food (I know junk food is not a drug but it is as addicting and as bad for me as drugs are). So this past month has been the first time I have been 100% totally drug free. I have been noticing lately that my beard growth has very dramatically slowed down. After 24 hours my beard used to feel like #80 grit sandpaper. Now after 24 hours I barely need to shave. I did a Google search on beard growth slowing down and every hit was about how to speed up beard growth (teenagers love this subject) and nothing about it slowing down. Has anyone else ever experienced their beard growth slowing down? Is it just something that happens with old age or did quitting one of those drugs prompt it?

I believe it is an age thing, I turned 67 last month and my beard does not grow nearly as fast as it used, not to mention it is no longer black.  I used to shave every morning and by 5:00Pm I needed to shave again, now I shave every other day and it ahs hardly grown and does not hardly show.

Ok, so it's not a beard, but the hair on my legs grows a lot slower and is sparser than it was in my younger days....not complaining, just saying  ;D

I think we are talking about something different here Wendy. On most older people most body hair gets thinner as we get older and it does so gradually. This is not thinning, this is growing much slower and it happened suddenly, in less than a month.

maybe all the caffeine was supercharging your beard growth  ::) and without it you are just returning to normal beard growth levels.

I sleep in an unheated RV that gets into the 30s at night without a problem. I hike 5 to 10 miles per day. I have no pooping problems. I have no peeing problems. I don't think hypothyrodism is my problem.

Tom, it's just a sign of maturing. 

Your beard growth has most likely not slowed.  It just appears that way because the hair in your nose and ears now grows so much faster. ;) :D

It can't be a sign of maturing, I refuse to mature. It most definitely slowed way down. The hair in my nose and ears slowed down and so did the hair on my head. It is just more noticeable on my face since I shave every day. My razor blades use to last about 3 shaves now they last about two weeks.

Every time I visit the hairdresser (aka barber) I ask why the hair they're cutting off is a little different color each time. Yesterday I was aghast when someone's (?) gray hair fell onto the cape they put on you. Couldn't be mine, because it's salt & pepper. Chris set me straight when I got home  :(

Yes, as soon as you cross the equator your hair uncurls and then immediately curls the other way.

I suspect that its just lighter in color and therefore less obvious - beards solve the problem, but are just as much work to maintain.

No, the color hasn't changed, the growth rate has changed. After 24 hours my beard used to feel like sandpaper, now after 24 hours I can hardly feel it.

I hear ya. I hate shaving and I hate growing a beard. So I end up shaving every day because if I do grow a beard shaving it off is a royal pain.

To make matters worse I hate shaving with a blade and I hate shaving with an electric.

But hey it beats having to put up with childbirth. I don't know how women do it. They are amazing.

Nah, doesn't work, takes off some of the hair and leaves blotches where the hair doesn't come off. Waste of money. Just let the hair grow and enjoy it.

But might be fun to get Tom to try.  If that won't work, laser treatment might.  Maybe estrogen therapy?  I like my beard, don't ind shaving what I trim, so it is a foreign argument to me.

You know when you see real old people that there noses and ears seem to be so big?  Well they are, I read that the cartilage in those never stop growing so we do get bigger noses and earlobes.

Nothing to do with beards, just some useless info.

And yes I'm noticed my hair on my head is not growing as fast either.  It used to be so thick you couldn't dry it rolled on rollers overnight, it would still be damp in the morning.  They still thin it but its nowhere like that, getting old is the pits for some areas of the body!

Maybe if Tom calls them "whiskers" instead of beard, his problem will be solved.  ;D

Use WD-40, it will lube your beard and speed the growth back up. ;D

Good idea, I use WD-40 for everything else. It is the best lubricant in the entire world. Nothing can beat it.

More importantly, can you use WD40 on a salad?

I use it on my guitar, but I have never tried to eat my guitar, so I don't know how it tastes.

Have you recently moved to a lower altitude?  Maybe the icreased air pressure has made it harder for your beard..............Oh, never mind.

Whenever I complain to my doctor about this or that ailment that has sprung up as I age, my doctor reminds me that this is all called "maturity."
