Guard Fills Quickly: The guard tends to fill with hair very quickly, especially if you have a very thick beard. However, a quick tap will get most of the hair out of the guard and you can continue trimming as usual.
Love him or hate him, James Franco makes sparse facial hair work for him. And if you have any doubts about that, ask the girls in your life: They will assure you, contrary to what you may believe, James Franco has it going on.
We also like that fact that Natural Beard Balm is, as its name suggests, made of all-natural ingredients. That means no pesticides, parabens, GMOs – you name it. Even the two-ounce can it comes in is recyclable.

When you first start growing a beard this isn’t something that you had in mind. Don’t you worry though. I prepared this article for you to guide you step by step and understand how to soften your beard easily and with not too much effort.
Making your own beard oil is that easy! After you’ve added your essential oils, put the cap on, shake it up, and enjoy. To use, simply put a small dab on your fingers (a few drops is all that’s necessary) and rub into your beard. The best time to use is after a shower when you’ve washed your beard and your skin is fresh.
Great article. My wife turned me to coconut oil as she applied it to her hair a couple times a week. It makes my beard so soft and really makes it shine. Not to mention once you brush it out after applying it really looks tight and full.
Remember that less is more and you can always trim more another day. In terms of maintenance I’d recommend rinsing the beard thoroughly everyday in the shower and apply beard oil daily. You can wash the beard with a beard wash anywhere between one and 3 times a week.
The thing that makes these beard oils “premium” is the rare or unique essential oil that gives the beard oil its scent and therapeutic characteristics. For example, the tobacco beard oil doesn’t have tobacco in it, but instead has a natural essential oil that mimics the scent of rich pipe tobacco. These rarer essential oils are more expensive to use–thus the price.
Hello beardmates.. I am going to make my own beard oil and I would like some advice from you all on the subject of mixes. I have bought sweet almond and jojoba as carrier oils (intend to use 2 parts almond, 1 part jojoba for base) and pine needle, cinnamon, eucalyptus and sandalwood essential oil. My goal is to make 3 mixes. A wooden smell, chill refreshing smell and a sweet smell (based on cinnamon, you’d guess). So… have any advice for me?
Many of the best trimmers are good for wet and dry use, i.e., you can both use it in the shower and/or with shave gels, lotions, and foams. Waterproof trimmers are usually easier to clean, as well. In most cases, you simply wash them with water from your faucet to remove excess hair trimmings. That kind of convenience is hard to beat.
Now that you’ve chosen your go-to beard oil, it’s time to take it for a spin. And, really, there’s not a lot to applying beard oil – put a couple of drops of it in the palm of your hand, then use your fingers to gently rub it on and inside of your beard.
The verdict: Super stylish, super powerful, the Norelco 7000 remains a grooming staple. A specially designed vacuum system captures 90% of liberated hairs in the handle of the unit for quick and easy disposal, keeping your floor and wardrobe mess-free. The contour head attachment works flawlessly in personalising beard styles, gliding gently across the face to reach every area and preventing the trimmer from tugging to avoid inflammation. We also love that it protects the self-sharpening blades to keep the base working efficiently without any oil tune-ups. Adding to its finesse is the turbo button feature, speeding up the blades and fan to cut through thicker hair with faster precision. Up to 20 lock-in length settings are afforded to you, starting at 0.5 and going up to 10mm for modern day Vikings. Great battery power is another virtue of this trimmer, with a single charge generating up to an hour of wireless use.
Hi, I read through many sites but found a detailed and useful reviews only here. Thank you. I have a question. I have thin facial hair and my current trimmer is no good to maintain a 5 o clock stubble. Can you please recommend a good trimmer for me which can tackle these thin hairs.
It makes your beard rough and tangled. As such, it becomes more difficult to wash off the product when you try to rinse. Leaving too much product in your beard can make it even rougher. Not to mention that the cleaning agents in the shampoo or soap do not work as effectively as usual, when in contact with hard water, due to the excess of minerals.
As always, Honest Amish stands apart from some of the other brands out there by using only all-natural and organic ingredients. Remember, your body is absorbing this stuff, so it’s important to consider that aspect when shopping.

A couple things to keep in mind before styling your beard: 1) you need the proper tools, and 2) you don’t need as much time as you think. The whole process, in fact, shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, especially once you get the hang of it. The tools you choose are up to you, but we recommend using both a beard brush and comb, Styling Balm, Sea Salt Spray, and a hair dryer.
Traditional Jews refrain from shaving, trimming the beard, and haircuts during certain times of the year like Passover, Sukkot, the Counting of the Omer, and the Three Weeks. Cutting the hair is also restricted during the 30-day mourning period after the death of a close relative, known in Hebrew as the Shloshim (thirty).
It’s simple: Seven Potions has created a beard oil that keeps your unruly whiskers silky soft and manageable but with a manly scent that’s sophisticated, unforgettable, yet not overpowering. Reviewers have described Woodland Harmony’s scent as “robustly rustic.”
Like we mentioned before, the best way to how to grow a thicker beard is to exercise to increase your testosterone and eat right, but there are a few tools that will definitely support the growth you’re looking for. Do you own a beard brush? What about a comb? If you answered no to both of those questions, then we highly suggest you change that as soon as humanly possible.
The Philips Norelco QT is the only shaver that boasts of a vacuum system to give its user mess-free stubble shave. The device also has additional features that are there in almost any performance based men’s beard trimmer that makes it a sure shot success with the male brigade. For instance, you can also adjust the settings of the trimmer for shaving beard to your desired length. Let us delve deeper into finding an insight of the product’s features, pros and cons.
The first thing you’ll need to decide is when to apply your beard balm. We’re assuming that you’re like most men and that it will be part of your morning routine. And we suggest you apply your balm after your morning shower when your beard is warm and damp. This is when your hair – and skin – will most absorb your balm’s key ingredients.
The time to recharge the battery takes too long. The product works on the nickel metal hydride battery which does not performs as well as the lithium ion battery, and thus you need to give long hours to your trimmer to charge full.
Hi Robin, thanks for your questions. Age can effect beard growth. Prime beard growing years are generally between 20-60. But many people older and younger grow full beards. Perhaps the most overlooked component to beard growth is hydration. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, wash your face with an all-natural hot processed birch tar soap, and then apply beard oil or beard balm. In addition, a biotin supplement can help your beard grow thicker.
Telogen phase: Up to 15% of your hair is going through the telogen phase at any particular time and that’s good news, because this is the shedding phase. After the catagen phase, hair stays put for one to four months until towards the end of the telogen phase where the old, spent hair is pushed out. Two weeks later, new hair begins to emerge as the anagen phase begins again for that hair follicle.
Meanwhile, there are some vitamins that have some more exotic ingredient than the standard B vitamins and iron that most people already know about. Collagen is one of these ingredients. Supplements containing collagen are a good thing because it’s a building block of protein, which is crucial for new hair growth. Not all beard growth vitamins contain collagen, but you can supplement it with a separate collagen product if your chosen brand doesn’t have it as part of their ingredient mix.
Up till recently, coconut oil wasn’t even in the top list of cosmetics manufacturers. Over the last few years, you see slowly that many producers are including it in all kinds of cosmetics. This gives us an indication of where the personal care industry is heading with all natural products.
The 3500’s self-sharpening titanium blades are second to none. They cut hair cleanly, efficiently, and without skin irritation. They provide lasting sharpness and are ready to provide a clean shave whenever you need it.
Most new beardsmen trim the neckline too high. The ideal location for the line is where the neck meets the head.So whatever your beard area is parallel with the ground, do not trim; whatever is parallel with the world infront of you, then it’s ok to trim.
However, if you’re looking for portability and convenience, then wireless models might be more suited to your preferences and lifestyle. However, if that’s your prerogative, be warned – you won’t have the same horsepower or the benefits of infinite juice that you get from models that use cords. At the end of the day, this choice is up to you!
Most Chinese emperors of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) appear with beards or mustaches in portraits. The exceptions are the Jianwen and Tianqi emperors, probably due to their youth – both died in their early 20’s.
I started to grow a beard, and was in need of a beard oil. I searched around to find one that was good quality and at a good price. Let me tell you, I was very happy with this product. THIS IS MY OPINION BTW!!! When I first tried the product, it was the best thing ever. It makes it smooth and soft. It also has no fragrance so it doesn’t mess with my cologne. But it’s not even just the product. They personally keep in touch and make sure your product is working. I thought that was amazing. Not many companies do that. You can’t put a price on that!!!
Cleaning up after you finished is already easier thanks to the integrated vacuum system – you’ll love how your sink looks after your shave – and cleaning the trimmer itself involves simply rinsing the blades under water and emptying the chamber.
The beard develops during puberty. Beard growth is linked to stimulation of hair follicles in the area by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which continues to affect beard growth after puberty. Various hormones stimulate hair follicles from different areas. DHT, for example, may also promote short-term pogonotrophy (i.e., the growing of facial hair). For example, a scientist who chose to remain anonymous spent several weeks on a remote island in comparative isolation. He noticed that his beard growth diminished, but the day before he was due to leave the island it increased again, reaching unusually high rates of growth during the first day or two on the mainland. He studied the effect and concluded that the stimulus for increased beard growth was related to the resumption of sexual activity. However, at that time professional pogonologists, such as R.M. Hardisty, dismissed a connection. Despite DHT’s relationship with terminal body and facial hair growth, the dominant hormone in facial hair development is likely the male sex hormone testosterone, with DHT more closely associated with beard growth speed rather than density (or “coverage”); moreover, neither hormone acts alone, depending instead on the quantity of androgen receptors on the face. Subjects with a greater preponderance of receptors will develop more terminal adult facial hairs.
