Split ends happen when your hair follicles become too coarse or brittle, and the ends fray and, well, split. There are a ton of different reasons this can happen. Luckily we’ve got the perfect video for you on how to fix it! Basically, the root cause is a lack of moisture in the follicles of your beard!
I’m completely new to beard oil. I am searching the internet trying to decide which one to go with. I have a girlfriend and want to make sure to get one she would like. I think I wanna stay away from the woodsy type. I am leaning towards the beard brand cause of great reviews, spiced citrus in particular because I think she would like the citrus and vanilla scent. Have you tried it? I’ve also seen good reviews on the bay lime one that you say your wife likes best. That looks good and is also 10$ cheaper. Would you recommend these or any others? THANKS!!
If you tackle the patchy problem from each of these angles while avoiding snake oil, it will usually all work itself out. Even if you beard stays patchy due to genetics, remember patchy beards can look awesome when you know how to maintain them.
The Series 3500 is relatively lightweight and has an easy-to-hold ergonomic design. You’re able to maintain a solid grip even as you’re maneuvering the trimmer around those hard to reach areas of your beard and face.
Mustaches look great on their own or as a complement to that dazzling beard you’ve grown. Like a beard, however, a mustache can look a little less than its best – i.e., droopy, unkempt – without the proper care.
Finally, it’s important to note that you should be brushing your beard if you want it to be softer. (But really, just in general you should be brushing your beard to keep it well-groomed and stuff.) Use something like this Boar Bristle Beard Brush from Huntsman Beard to detangle and soften your beard like a boss.
Thirdly, make sure you’re getting enough vitamins in your system for hair growth. Especially vitamins related to testosterone. We recommend L-Arginine and L-Citrulline, Tribulus, and L-Glutamine. Make sure you’re getting enough Panthenol — which is in most vitamin B complexes. And taking 1 mg of Copper every day can help fight the loss of color in your hair (always talk to your doctor first to make sure it’s safe).
Dermatologist. Researcher. Writer. There are only two things more important than my beard in life; My wife and my two kids. I’m a guy full of surprise. If you don’t hear me talk about my hair or beard, it’s probably because I am watching the UFC.
Our friends over at Tools of Men do a really great job at covering a wide variety of topic for men. Face creams, watch reviews, the different types of razors and oils to use, and so much more than we can’t even begin to describe. You just gotta check it out yourself! Hell, maybe you’ll learn a thing or two.
Maybe it seems like an extra step in the process, but if you really want to get the most out of your beard, condition it. It defends against the dreaded “itch”, for one, because it helps your beard maintain the proper amount of hydration.
Using the wrong scissors or trimmer can have negative effects on the quality of your beard. Once you get your trimming game on, make sure that your trimming gadget is properly cleaned and properly sharpened. Otherwise, this can lead to actually breaking the hair, instead of cutting it. And beard will be more prone to split ends which will lead to… ? You guessed it right! A rough beard.
This is no ordinary, run of the mill brush. There aren’t any plastic bristles to snag your beard and pull out your hair. A boar’s hair bristle brush is made from, well, a boar’s hair. It’s great for training your hair to grow in the direction you want, and provides a ton of benefits to your skin and hair. The bristles have a scaled texture that is perfect for sweeping away dust and grime, evenly distributing the oil of your skin, and stimulating circulation in your scalp and face.
Although it’s an average weight for a beard trimmer at only one pound, the sleek design doesn’t give it as good of a grip and its design doesn’t fit as well in your hand as other models we have reviewed.
The 7200’s integrated vacuum system promises to catch up to 90% of your stray hairs thanks to a high-velocity motor and fan system that provide powerful suction to lift and capture maximum hairs. But the vacuum system isn’t the only reason this trimmer is a go-to choice.
The Braun BT5070 also comes with a small 1 cm trimmer that slides out of the top of the unit and is ideal for trimming hard-to-reach places such as around your nose and mouth. Its battery provides 50-minutes of trimming before needing to be re-charged (it also comes with a power cord if that’s your preferred method of trimming.
If you choose to get rid of your new beard, the easiest way to dispose of it is to use a beard trimmer or other hair clippers. Use the trimmer or clippers to trim away as much hair as possible. Follow that with a regular shave. Be extra careful.

Applying beard wash and softener is an important part of your beard-grooming regimen, and your beard will thank you for it. Beard wash takes a kinder, gentler approach to cleaning your facial hair than the regular shampoo you use on your scalp. It has milder ingredients that make for a gentler lather than you might expect.

As for the trimmers, the ones with the (best) flexible comb, powerful motor, and sharper blades are going to produce a more even trim assuming you are putting in the same effort. On this list, I’d say the Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer Series 7200 should give you the most even trim overall.
The length of your beard – medium, short, stubble – is an important factor when choosing a trimmer. Make sure that the one you choose as multiple length settings. Also, some trimmers are best for short hair, others with longer hair – and so on. The bottom line is that the trimmer you choose supports the length of beard you have.
A beard that feels “oily” is no fun. Using too much beard oil can get in your mouth, make your food taste funny, stain your clothes, or get on your significant other when you lean in for a kiss. You want to lightly glaze your beard with the oil, and rub it in so that every strand can absorb it. If your beard feels oily or slick afterwards, then you probably used too much.
Beard oils are manufactured with the intent to emulate the natural oils produced by the skin, known as sebum. Carrier type oils generally contain vitamins A, D and E, as well as a high concentration of linoleic acids and low concentrations of oleic acids. Natural and synthetic scents may be added to the oil in order to enhance its properties and aroma. Natural scents (essential oils, absolutes, and extracts) are derived differently than synthetic scents and contain different chemical compounds that enhance their functionality. This can give beard oils properties such as antibacterial, deodorant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging. Beard oils making claims to be therapeutic must be approved by the FDA.
There are a lot of groups on the internet that will provide support if you are having a bad beard day. My favorite places to hang out are: /r/beards, Beardboard.com, and BeardedGents.com. Upload photos of your beard growth progress and bask in the positive and constructive comments from other beardsmen.
Eggs – Rich in protein and are a natural source of Biotin which is known to strengthen hair and is a well-known supplement which helps with beard growth. Eggs also have many minerals in them such as iron, calcium, and zinc.
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.
My boyfriend wants to just have a shadow for a beard but has been using a trimmer with plastic guards and he hates it. What is a really good trimmer for him to just have that shadow look? No plastic guards either.
