Beard Oil is a combination of oils and vitamins that you apply to your beard that is essential for maintaining your beard, mustache, goatee and other other form of facial hair. Regardless of the length of your beard, your facial hair should be taken care of just like you would with the hair on your head and that’s where Beard Oil comes in.
Jump up ^ Varro asked rhetorically how often the tradesmen of the country shaved between market days, implying (in chronologist E. J. Bickerman’s opinion) that this did not happen at all: “quoties priscus homo ac rusticus Romanus inter nundinum barbam radebat?”,Varr. ap. Non. 214, 30; 32: see also E J Bickerman, Chronology of the Ancient World, London (Thames & Hudson) 1968, at p.59.
This is absolutely not true, at least not necessarily. While there are several causes of acne, and it could make you break out worse, most types of acnes would be helped by coconut oil. Look into it and read about it, you’ll see numerous articles about it.
Well, you’ve proven the 8th grade critics that called your fledgling facial hair “a hideous Pandora’s Box of peach fuzz” wrong and grown the type of manly beard deodorant commercials are based on. Then, in a stroke of genius, you made sure said beard would be even more glorious (yes, somehow that was possible) by purchasing our Beard Oil or Beard Balm. We understand that now would be a most inopportune time to drop the ball — and we’ve got your back. To ensure maximum beard mojo, here’s the answers to your questions on how to apply your new Texas Beard Co. products.
During the first month of trying to grow your beard, you are going to find it looks like a wild forest growing on your face. This is when you are going to want to trim it up and start shaping it to look cleaner.
In China, the revolution of 1911 and subsequent May Fourth Movement of 1919 led the Chinese to idealise the West as more modern and progressive than themselves. This included the realm of fashion, and Chinese men began shaving their faces and cutting their hair short. Moustaches were however, still worn by prominent figures like Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang Kai-shek and Lu Xun.
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.
The answer #1 is minoxidil. It works by activating the potassium channels on your hair follicles and allows for increased circulation of nutrients, testosterone, and DHT to the beard follicles, dramatically improving beard growth within 6-12 months.

The Arc 5 is one of the best electric shavers from the makers of Panasonic. This one from the Japanese brand is bound to change the definition of a ‘close shave’ for its users. A foil shaver, it has 5 sharp blades that give the most close shave you can think of. It is also the best beard trimmer for long and thick beards. Let us see some of its features and pros and cons as well.
Hi Raj. We would not recommend grapeseed oil as it could go rancid in your beard. Avocado oil can produce side effects so we wouldn’t recommend that either. Either a beard oil or beard balm should do what you want, providing it contains a combination of jojoba and argan oil. Those are the two oils that best moisturize and strengthen facial hair. Try our beard balm + beard oil set:
Mesopotamian men of Semitic origin (Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians and Chaldeans) devoted great care to oiling and dressing their beards, using tongs and curling irons to create elaborate ringlets and tiered patterns. Unlike them, the non-Semitic Sumerian men tended to shave off their facial hair (which is especially notable, for example, in the numerous statues of Gudea, a ruler of Lagash, as opposed to the depiction of the roughly contemporaneous Semitic ruler of Akkad, Naram-Sin, on his victory stele).
The jojoba and argan in our Honeysuckle beard oil will soften your facial hair creating the conditions for fast beard growth and the Tobacco and Leather beard balm will help your facial hair grow and appear fuller and thicker.
Even for those of us with signs of dense facial hair, we still might not let our beards grow out in fear of uneven growth. It doesn’t matter who you are, there isn’t a single beard out there that naturally grows out in perfect uniformity from side to side, top to bottom, or chin to cheek. To think otherwise is silly and will put you on the fast track to disappointment. This gents is why we have beards trimmers and electric clippers, to help even out unruly corners of our facial hair and achieve the desired looks that we want for our beards. The only way you’ll know how your beard grows is if you let it do its thing and then adapt. Your beard is unique for a reason, it’s time to make peace with it.
For those growing out the beards, this is where all the fun starts to come in. After about 2 months you’ll notice your beard does some really funky things. What was once a straight and neat look, becomes wavy, curly and what you may think is wild. This is natural and it should be embraced as your natural beard.
Art Naturals Organic Beard Oil & Leave-In Conditioner comes in a 2-ounce bottle with an included dropper for easier and safer application of the oil. This product is an awesome moisturizer which will hydrate your skin perfectly, and it will treat any harmful conditions like itchiness or flaky skin in no time. This beard oil will also treat coarse hair, and it will transform your beard from rough, hard-to-touch hair into a very soft, loveable beard.
For a “corporate beard” I would aim for about 1 to 2 month of length. It will be good to keep everything trimmed and tidy as mentioned above. To keep the length, I’d recommend using scissors instead of clippers. This will help prevent against wrong guard mistakes and gives you more control. Use a comb to pull out hairs to the desired length and trim away.
Overall, this is a trimmer that is a great asset to a man’s collection of grooming tools, but it does have some drawbacks that put it out of the running for men that need more length from their beards.
Just because you can’t grow a full beard by your early twenties or beyond, it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. In fact, beard thickness is largely determined by how your body reacts to testosterone. All men have pretty much the same amount of testosterone; beard growth depends on how your body reacts to all that testosterone that happens as you progress through the various stages of puberty, which is why testosterone supplements don’t really help with beard growth. In fact, elitedaily.com says that going for outrageous hair treatments may do a lot more harm than good.
Great article! Thanks. I’ve been growing a beard for a while now and along the journey I’ve become fairly obsessed with beard oils. My favourite by far is Buccaneer Grooming’s ‘The Buc’. It’s an Australian brand and smells super fresh with sandalwood, lemongrass and peppermint. It’s really unique. I’ve found many other brands make scents that are fairly similar. This one is quite different and I recommend you check it out.
I’ve been using a Norelco Multigroom 5100 for a while. It’s fine, but the length/comb attachments aren’t good at gathering the hairs, always leaving randomly longer ones behind and making the whole process take longer. What’s the “even-ness” rating for any of the ones on this list?
Don’t give up! Set a target date. For example, give yourself a minimum of six weeks’ growth before deciding to abandon your beard-growing effort. Commit to not shaving before that six weeks is up. When you’ve reached the six weeks date, then you can decide whether you want to continue with the beard or get rid of it.
Easy Handling– The best beard trimmer for men is the one which allows easy handling and convenient process of operation. The mechanism should be easy to understand, so that even if the product has wide assortments in the attachments, the user shall understand the use of each and every attachment that comes up with the product. While at the same time, the size of the product shall be compact enough to be packed and carried to different locations.
I have been trying to grow a beard for a while now but it was fragile so I decided to start over what do you recommend for thicker healthier beards? I already grow all over my face just want a stronger healthier looking beard. And what do u recommend to use for styling once it’s long enough.
Overall, this is about making you feel confident and comfortable in your skin. The art of manliness is rooted in giving you back the power behind your self image. Use what works for you and reap the generous benefits.
As with all issues we each find with our beards, the more you stare at it, the more flaws come to light and the more you judge your lack of bearded perfection, something that is really out of your control. By constantly judging your own beard, you’re only bringing yourself down and as your harshest critic, that can take a much larger toll than most might admit to. Try to remember that no one else who observes your beard is picking you apart like you do and the issues you see in your own beard will be greatly diminished if you can learn to not make hourly notes on your beard growth by constantly looking at its reflection. Moral of the story, the less often you look at your beard, the less you’ll be critical of it, and the more progress you’ll see when you do take a peek.
I’d be happy to give you a link to our website, as long as it’s alright with Brandon the owner of this site. I’m not trying to spam up anyone’s website. I hope you understand Balach. If Brandon gives me the OK, I’ll reply again with a link.
You can use coconut oil as a pre-shave oil to soften your face and facial hair before you apply any lathering product. We mentioned already how coconut oil is excellent for softening your beard. And using it as a pre-shave oil is a great idea.
Short Battery Life: 50 minutes is not an incredibly long charging time, so if you are someone who wants to be able to use your trimmer for a long time without having to reconnect it to the charging port and wait, then this is something for you to consider. It also takes 4 hours to get a full charge, which can be a long time for many.
When trimming the mustache, I recommend you use a pair of scissors over clippers. This will give you a little more control and only cuts a few hairs at a time. With the cheek line try to go with your natural line and only trim off the one or two stragglers that are outside that line.
Massage it into your beard in a downward motion starting from your cheeks. Work it into the root of your hair follicles and then work your way to the ends of your beard. It’s important to get started at the roots, and not at the top of the hair. Dig deep.
Beard balm is simply a leave-in conditioner that moisturizes, conditions, softens and helps style your beard. Most beard balms contain shea butter for softening and moisturizing, sweet almond oil for conditioning and booting growth, and a protectant (such as beeswax) for sealing in moisture. These ingredients are aimed at facilitating proper beard grooming and when naturally based, should not have negative side effects on your skin or beard.
