Also, Read about:
1. Atul: Tell something about yourself and your family?
Allen: I am a kind hearted, down to earth person. I’m very friendly and sometimes out going. I like getting to know people from different backgrounds and all walks of life. I am the type of person that would give you the shirt off my back.
So a little bit about my family, well my immediate family as of right now it’s just me and my older sister. My only older brother and parents have passed on. They were wonderful people and I think about them every day. My father was a cab driver and my mother worked at a hospital.
2. Atul: What you do professionally?
Allen: I currently work two to three jobs. My first main job is that I am a laborer for Boston housing. I do landscaping, snow removal and house cleaning. My second job is that I am a part time supervisor for cvs. My third job is security sometimes.
3. Atul: When you started growing the Beard and Why?
Allen: I have started growing my beard 🧔🏾 when I could grow one, and I would go through different phases. Sometimes I had goatee or kept it low. I grew my beard because of my father. My father had a big beard and wore it proudly.
Another example why I grow the beard is simply because I have the genetics. I like having a beard; it makes me stand out from other men that don’t have one (nothing against men that don’t have beards). And I love getting compliments from women.
4. Atul: How you take care of your Beard?
Allen: When taking care of my beard I simply rinse it everyday. I wash my beard two days a week with beard soap. I condition my beard with a beard conditioner at least four days a week. After that, I gently comb out my beard and let it air dry until it’s damp. Then I add my products to my beard - oil first and then beard butter.
5. Atul: What you think are the benefits of Beard?
Allen: The benefit of a beard to me is it makes you look more masculine. Having a beard protects your skin from too much heat and keeps your face warm in the cold.
