We put all our videos in writing as well, that way we can give background and go into more detail where the video didn’t. We also cover grooming tips, dressing up with a beard, and even how to care for it in different seasons. Anything you need to know about beards, grooming, or our products can be found here.
Another part of the product are the essential oils. As the name might imply – they are the ones that give the oil its sense and essence and they are the ones that you will smell as soon as you open the bottle and what other people will smell when they stand next to you to admire your glorious mane.
There are plenty of reasons why the five beard trimmers reviewed above are on our ‘best of’ list for 2018. We took into account a lot of factors: each trimmer’s versatility, ease of use, the number of (useful) attachments, whether it was good for both wet and dry shaving, and durability.
One of the biggest complaints of men growing a full on beard is that its itchy as heck. That’s because your beard is sucking all the nutrients from your face making it very dry and flaky. A consequence of this dryness is a “beardruf” – yes you though right, it’s dandruff on your beard.
The trimmer’s sharp stainless steel blades are angled at 45 degrees to create the optimal cutting edge. It’s fast and powerful, and you’ll get quick, efficient facial hair trimming (and head hair). The trimmer comes with 3-blades and cuts cleanly through even the thickest and most dense hair.
When do I do my grooming? If you tend to trim your beard after a shower, then you’d want one intended for wet trimming. However, if you normally trim prior to taking a shower, then one designed for dry trimming will serve you much better.
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!!
Here’s where things get a bit foggy. After all, if you’re using a beard trimmer to maintain a certain length of hair, doesn’t it stand to reason that it could be used to maintain and trim stubble, as well?
The next problem men face when trying to grow a beard faster is unreasonable expectations. It is almost impossible to wake up one morning with a fully-fledged beard, but you can begin to see growth over a few days. When tempted to shave it all off, remember that it will take time and that you are taking active steps in the right downward direction. Most men move out of the itchy, growing in phase by the end of the week, so focus on something else and it will arrive faster.
Product attributes- The product should allow multiple functions, the best electric beard trimmer is not the one which could be just used to trim the beard. It should instead have all the properties which allow the user to shape the beard and make it look just perfect. It should support trimming of beard of all kinds, and should prove to be the apt alternative for shaping the beard in the required form.
By now, whether your new beard is in full bloom or in the scruffy, beginner stages, you should know about beard oil. Why? Because beard oil is important for helping your beard be all that it can be while maintaining your handsomeness at the highest level.
While I was looking at each beard oil company, I noticed that just about every one offer a true unscented one. They were called, unscented, nude, bare etc…etc. You just have to look at the whole catalog of each company. Lucky Scruff offers one, Dream Beard does, as well as Blacklabelbeard and Beardoilshop.
We’ve recently released a new addition to our Beard Care line, a Beard Balm. We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding the difference between Beard Oil and Beard Balm, so I thought I’d help clarify in this post.
Pen down your budget– Afore you start rating the product on the basis of its features, its better you lay down your budget on priority basis. Depending on how much you can spend on the product, the brands would be sorted accordingly. So, it is very important to pen down the budget that you plan to spend on a men’s beard trimmer.
In addition to being a great moisturizer, beard oil can act as a beard deodorizer and cologne. Look for a beard oil scented with an essential oil blend, not with fragrance oils. Essential oils are distilled from nature whereas fragrance oils are synthetic and can potentially damage your beard. If you are looking for an easy, simple and quick way to moisturize and condition your facial hair, reduce the itching of early growth and create the conditions for healthy beard growth, all natural beard oil is for you.
Lastly, keep that ‘stache moisturized! Use quality all natural beard oil, and an all natural moustache wax if you need help maintaining a tidy moustache. You can find those here:http://themodcabin.com/product-category/beard-oils/ and here: http://themodcabin.com/product-category/moustache-waxes/
When I turned 23, I decided to try growing a beard. 2 months of no shaving whatsoever and I had a not-so impressive thin mustache and some fuzz on my chin. The total hair on my cheeks and sideburn area could not reach double digits.
Grooming a beard does take time but when you see the results it is well worth it. These are just some general guidelines for beard grooming to help get you started. As with everything in life there will be nuances depending how long your beard is and other factors like if you have dry facial hair that will influence that product you will choose. If you think I missed a tip, please do tell me in the comment section, I’d love to hear from you.
That’s where beard oils come in. You’ve probably heard about them, but many guys I’ve spoken with don’t really know why or how they’re used, or where to begin when it comes to choosing one. Will they make your face break out? Why would you slather oil on your face? Read on, and we’ll clear it all up.
Mystic Man’s Organic Beard Oil calls on the ancient secrets of the Mediterranean with its blend of sedr extract and organic oils. From stubble to lumberjack-like beards, Mystic Man is formulated for all lengths of facial hair.
A man with a beard has a single priority, and that is his beard. So, help nourish it the right way using an organic beard oil that can make your beard soft and manageable. Beard oil is essential for hydrating and maintaining healthy facial hair.
You have to get used to it. Your beard now is part of you. Just like the hair on your head. But unlike the hair on your head, the beard gets in contact with the food you eat. And it’s more prone to be touched during the day.
There are a ton of guys out there who have some amazing beards. You’ve seen them all over Instagram and YouTube. They are almost inescapable to see at this point. You may feel like they have the best beard in the world and that you can only aspire to grow one as awesome as theirs. I’ll let you in on a little secret though, they’re only human. They have bits and pieces of their beard that they don’t love too. It’s okay to look up to someone for the type of beard they have. You can look at the color, thickness, style, and so much more. Just don’t idolize them for their beard. It’s not healthy to actively compare yourself to the beards you see. Focus on your own beard, and what you’re able to grow. Who knows, maybe someone looks up to your beard too.
At 3 months and longer, you’ll only want to wash your beard about once at week or as needed. Again, a thorough rinsing daily is also recommended. Apply daily beard oil for moisturizing, and trim only with scissors. Never trim or shave off your beard if you are depressed or under the influence of alcohol.
The 5100’s self-sharpening steel blades are also designed to provide as clean of a cut as you’ll find on any trimmer. Norelco double sharpens them to cut more hair with each pass to speed up the process, which is always handy while you’re trying to get out the door in the morning.
Odds are you know whether or not this is a possibility by now-so don’t fight nature if you suffer from boy face. But if you can (and would like to) acquire some facial fur, LA-based Baxter Finley barber Christian Olvera has some tips for doing it right. Hit the sweet spot (natural and groomed—not manicured) and a beard will look great with both a beanie and a double-breasted jacket this fall.
Iconography and art dating from the 4th century onward almost always portray Jesus with a beard. In paintings and statues most of the Old Testament Biblical characters such as Moses and Abraham and Jesus’ New Testament disciples such as St Peter appear with beards, as does John the Baptist. However, Western European art generally depicts John the Apostle as clean-shaven, to emphasize his relative youth. Eight of the figures portrayed in the painting entitled The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci are bearded. Mainstream Christianity holds Isaiah Chapter 50: Verse 6 as a prophecy of Christ’s crucifixion, and as such, as a description of Christ having his beard plucked by his tormentors.
Wash your beard with beard shampoo. Give it a proper massage while you’re at it. It will not only clean it properly, but it will also improve the quality of your skin. Experience with lots of beard shampoos tells us that Seven Potions is a healthy, wise choice. But we won’t hold it against you if you chose differently!
Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, commanded the Sikhs to maintain unshorn hair, recognizing it as a necessary adornment of the body by Almighty God as well as a mandatory Article of Faith. Sikhs consider the beard to be part of the nobility and dignity of their manhood. Sikhs also refrain from cutting their hair and beards out of respect for the God-given form. Kesh, uncut hair, is one of the Five Ks, five compulsory articles of faith for a baptized Sikh. As such, a Sikh man is easily identified by his turban and uncut hair and beard.
Exercise is perhaps the best thing you can do for promoting a thicker beard. Facial hair happens because of the way your body reacts to testosterone. By naturally boosting your testosterone levels through exercise, you give your body more testosterone to react to. A thicker beard is often the result. Anecdotally, girls often say their eyebrows come in fuller after they start exercising regularly, so it makes sense that this phenomenon would transfer to beards for guys.
Make sure that you brush off any excess hair that might be in the blades before you begin. Once the oil has saturated the blades, wipe them down, making sure the blades are dry on top so your hair doesn’t stick.
Attachments– Variety in attachment adds more versatility to the product. Check out the number of attachments that are available with the product, and this would guide you about the uses to which the trimmer could be put to. The best trimmer for shaping will have multiple attachments, using which you could create different stylish looks.
If you’re growing a beard for the first time, try to tie it in with No Shave November or some sort of charity growing cause. It’ll give you an immediate response to all the haters who try to put you down. A lot of times the people you need to convince is your significant other. It’s a lot more personal this time. They bought into the relationship when you were completely shaven, or rocking some designer stubble, and they were comfortable with that. We all change throughout our lives and throughout a relationship. You evolve your style, your clothes, and your hair, so why not do the same with your facial hair. It’s a great point to bring up to them, and drive home that it’s an internal drive and you want to try new looks.
The Minox Beard Spot (TMBS) is a closed Facebook group which was created on June 3rd, 2015. Now hosting thousands of members, the intention of the group is to discuss the usage of minoxidil for the purpose of growing more facial hair.
Just a heads up – you’re more than likely going to run into snags during the combing process. Snags aren’t necessarily knots in your beard, but are the result of individual strands of hair growing in different directions and crossing over one another. When you come to a snag, don’t try to force it out. Instead, gently pull it out with your comb. Remember, this isn’t a race. There are no bonus points awarded for combing your beard faster than the next guy.
The big difference between beard balm and beard oil is that balm is thicker and can be used as a styling agent. Some say balm is better during the early stages of beard growth when it’s more scruff than the real thing.
