I can't imagine paleo man shaved regularly, if at all. Shaving is a bit of a hassle, but girls seem to love smooth skin.
If you shave, do you shave in a more paleo (e.g. straight razor) way?
I gave up shaving when I started to eat Paleo. I use my beard to store pork and duck drippings for future fuel on the long hunts. Beats tupperware although I could use a finer comb with an attached handy wipe.
What's going on here? Can we get some representation for beards? I've had one 90% of the time for the last six years.
I've only been paleo for a year, so the beard is pretty much independent of that. But somehow I expected that all the other paleos out there would be letting it grow as soon as they converted. Needless to say I am very disappointed in all of you.
[Trying to sound half-ironic, by the way.]
I've had beard for about a year, and I've been paleo for a bit less than that. I will say my hair seems to grow faster and thicker. At first it was a bit scratchy but you adapt. My wife loves my beard, BTW.

I shave once a week, not because of paleo but because I'm so busy... I DO more now coupled with my facial hair growing at least twice as fast means I'm often scruffy ... I call it rugged.. I hope
I've had long hair for years, and have not had a haircut that I paid for since 1997. I just bring the end o my hair around to where I can see it, then cut off the split ends with a sharp rock.. umm, I mean scissors.
My facial hair looks best as a goatee, and now that winter is incoming, it might be making a comeback.
