What is No Shave November?

No Shave November is a worldwide campaign created to raise awareness about Men’s Health issues with special focus on Prostate & Testicular Cancers. The campaign encourages men to grow out their facial hair, beard & moustache wild & free. This is something that cancer patients do not have an opportunity to do.

Why it matters?

No Shave November is more than just about not shaving. It’s about showing your support & extending your helping hand to those suffering from the deadly prostate & testicular cancers. Here are some startling facts about men’s health that can get you started:

  • 85% of health issues that affect men are preventable
  • Men are 70% less likely than women to seek treatment for illness
  • Prostate cancer is one of the leading cancers in India
  • Its incidence rates are increasing with estimated 1.7 million new cases by 2030

Why should you participate?

No Shave November is a way to embrace your hair by letting it grow. Both men & women can participate by not shaving or cutting their hair for a month. Here are 2 great reasons why you NEED to participate:

  • Save money - Think of all the money you get to save just by not buying razors for a month
  • Support a great cause - There could not be an easier way to raise awareness for a cause. You are practically doing nothing (except for taking selfies of your wildly growing beard, of course) & this is helping spread awareness about Men’s Health especially prostate & testicular cancers

What do you need to do?

You just need to give a rest to your razors, clippers, scissors & trimmers for the next 30 days & grow your facial hair to show your support for cancer prevention in men. The campaign has been around for over a decade now & seeks to raise awareness for prostate & testicular cancer. Here are the rules:

  • Start Clean
  • No Shave until December 1st
  • Resist your urge to shave
  • Keep your beard clean & healthy
  • Take a Before/After Selfie
  • Share it with us on noshavenovember@drshyamvarma.com
