I would love to try going 75 days without trimming my beard but I could never get away with it. Maybe I'll give it a try when I win the next Powerball.
Oy. I can't go two *weeks* without trimming my beard. It itches like a sumbitch if I wait too long. I don't know how Brian Wilson and/or ZZ Top manages to let their beards grow that long.
Itching only happens in the beginning because your skin is doing something it's not used to. After a few weeks, your skin adjusts to its new "environment," and the itching goes away. I've had a beard for about 5 years now, and it never itches.
Honestly, let it get long enough, and you don't even feel your face at all anymore!
