Now lies the question, how do you keep your moustache under control for 30 days? Well we at Glam Africa have some useful tips for you!
Condition – Conditioning your moustache will do wonders in keeping it soft and stoping any early growth itching and tickling.
Trim and Comb – Trimming your Mo will keep it tidy and stop it from going wild. Comb your moustache before trimming it and sure your hair is dry as hair expands when wet and retracts when dry.
Moisturise – Moisturise your moustache at least twice a day as the skin underneath your moustache will get dry and flaky.
And lastly, while you grow out moustache, Movember Foundation has given you some ideas on to which Mo to rock this year.
Which Mo will you be rocking this ?
