"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

Hello there. I am in the RAF, and now sport a handlebar moustache that looks much the worse for wear if I do not wax it. However, I am now back to flying aircraft with oxygen masks, and am a little concerned that my face might spontaneously combust if I combine the oxygen with my moustache wax.

Can anyone tell me (catagorically) what wax would be suitable to use in an oxygen-rich environment?

Thanks for your help,

Is the oxygen content from your mask actually higher than normal air? Even if it is, you won't get spontaneous combustion. You need a spark for that, or very high heat. Any wax you like should be good but a lot of waxes have petrolatum in them which can harm natural rubber or latex and damage a mask if it's made from that.

Have you tried Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue? It's greaseless, holds stronger than wax and washes out easily. Check this article and video on my blog.

It's not always the moustache you carry, but it's always how you carry the moustache.

Two Week Rule: Never cut your handlebar moustache off until you hate it for two weeks solid.
