Grow and maintain a ‘tache this Movember

Grow and maintain a ‘tache this Movember

Whether you’re into a wide and thick moustache like Tom Selleck’s, a narrow and pointy one like Salvador Dali’s or a handlebar moustache like Hulk Hogan’s, growing and taking care of a ‘tache requires a certain amount dedication and daily maintenance. This Movember, we urge all men to grow a moustache to raise awareness for men’s health issues.

Here is our ultimate guide to growing and maintaining your moustache – no matter what its shape:

  • First things first – let it grow! Take some time to allow your moustache to grow – this may take anything from a number of days to a number of weeks, depending on how fast your facial hair grows.
  • The key to growing and maintaining a full and even moustache is regular trimming. During the early stages you may find that clippers or a beard trimmer work best, but after a couple of weeks you will need to start using a good quality pair of facial hair scissors to trim around the mouth. Use your lip line as a trimming guide and trim the hair when it’s dry. Wet hair is heavier and hangs lower than dry hair, meaning you may cut off more than you intended.
  • This is also a good time to start using a moustache comb, along with a good quality oil like the FINO Beard and Shave Oil (R135 – Clicks; Dis-Chem). Combing your moustache daily detangles it and keeps it even, whilst the beard oil helps moisturise facial hair, and hydrate and protect the skin underneath. It also aids in preventing the itchiness associated with hair growth. Apply the beard oil once or twice a day for optimum results and manageability.
  • Good hygiene practices are extremely important when it comes to your facial hair. Be sure to gently cleanse the area twice a day to remove any unwanted dirt and impurities. We recommend FINO MAN Gel Face Wash for beards and face (R69.95 – Clicks; Dis-Chem). A multifunctional product, it gently (yet effectively) removes daily impurities and promotes soft and moisturised skin whilst protecting against ingrown hair and bumps.
  • Whether your moustache is your only facial hair, or you’re pairing it with some well-kept stubble / a full beard, keep a tube of FINO Soothe MAN (R69.95 – Clicks; Dis-Chem) on hand to ensure your skin remains razor burn and ingrown hair free. FINO Soothe MAN contains fruit enzymes that naturally exfoliate the skin to minimise the build-up of dead cells, itchiness and dreaded ingrowns. It also prevents sensitivity and redness, leaving your skin looking smooth and feeling healthy.
  • Play around with styles! There are so many moustache shapes to choose from; why not try them all? There are various shaping tools on the market to help you get your preferred shape at home, but if you’re not feeling brave enough to attempt it yourself, we recommend paying a visit to your local barber.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
