No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. The goal is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment.
“I got involved with No-Shave November when my step-dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer around 2012 the next year I had heard about Movember and No-Shave November,” states Brandon Woodhead, founder of Wyld Hair Beard Oil. “I was working in a corporate environment and was completely shaven. No-Shave November allowed me to show my support for my dad and get in touch with my wild side at the same time and break that corporate mold.”
Wyld Hair Beard Oil is a Atlanta-based beard oil company that will be taking part in a No-Shave November Brewery Tour. The company will not only be providing beard oil that helps with those newly growing, itchy beards but also information on getting involved to raise awareness about men’s health.
“Men can get involved in No-Shave November by donning their bearded armor. A beard can be seen as a form of armor showing strength and resilience. Women can get involved by supporting their friends and family by supporting them in getting tested and seeing their primary physician at least once a year.”
Wyld Hair will be on tour throughout Atlanta in the following locations
You can visit the No-Shave November website to learn more about the concept, how to get involved and the rules for the movement. No-Shave November is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research and education.
