I have a philips norelco 5100, but the beard comb doesn’t get the length I want. It says it goes from 1-18mm but I want in between 3mm and 2mm, but it doesn’t work, either it goes to low or to high. Is there something you could recommend? thanks
According to the Shia scholars, as per Sunnah, the length of beard should not exceed the width of a fist. Trimming of facial hair is allowed, however, shaving it is haram (religiously forbidden).
Additionally, the DBGS comes with three comb lengths: 3-day stubble, short beard, and long beard. The DBGS is designed for true one-pass trimming so you don’t need to worry about taking extra strokes to make your beard look the way you want.

After Joseph Smith, many of the early presidents of the LDS Church, such as Brigham Young and Lorenzo Snow, wore beards. Since David O. McKay became church president in 1951, most LDS Church leaders have been clean-shaven. The church maintains no formal policy on facial hair for its general membership. However, formal prohibitions against facial hair are currently enforced for young men providing two-year missionary service. Students and staff of the church-sponsored higher education institutions, such as Brigham Young University (BYU), are required to adhere to the Church Educational System Honor Code, which states in part: “Men are expected to be clean-shaven; beards are not acceptable”, although male BYU students are permitted to wear a neatly groomed moustache. A beard exception is granted for “serious skin conditions”, and for approved theatrical performances, but until 2015 no exception was given for any other reason, including religious convictions. In January 2015, BYU clarified that students who want a beard for religious reasons, like Muslims or Sikhs, may be granted permission after applying for an exception.
As you get older that’s just not the case. The main thing is that most times as a teenager, you feel impatient. You don’t want to wait. You want it right now. But that’s the biggest part of growing a beard, as you age your beard will grow in fuller and thicker. There’s almost a scale. When you start puberty, you grow small stuff here and there. Then at 18-20, it starts to grow in much thicker. Heck, even Eric wasn’t able to grow a full beard until about he was about 28. If you’re 14 and want a beard right now, that might not happen as fast as you think. Even at 18, it’s not all that common. Even in our videos, Greg is in his 50s, Carlos Eric & Jeff in their mid-30s. They all have the patience to grow their beards, cause that’s how long they took to reach that point.
Many beards men would argue that the first two weeks of beard growth are the toughest and with good reason. By the third week, that pesky itch will have subsided, and your patch of facial hair is taking the shape of a real beard.

…As it’s the pregnancy week 22 (five months), when the fetus forms all of its hair follicles. This is when ALL of the ~5 million bodily hair follicles are generated and after this point, we will never generate new ones during the courses of our lives.
Essentially, the parts of a strand of hair are: the medulla, the cortex and the cuticle. For understanding hair as it pertains to your beard needs, you can forget the medulla, which is the inner core and lacks structure, and focus on the latter two. The cortex is the middle layer where hair gets its structure from, and the shape of the cortex—round or oval—determines how curly or straight your hair is. (Curlier hair has a more oval shape whereas straight has a more rounded shape.) Melanin lies here in the cortex as well and works to give your hair its color. The cuticle is the outer layer of your hair and it’s what repels excess water that your cortex layer has drawn in.
Other essential oils are used primarily for their scent: sandalwood, clove, sage, rosewood, tea tree, lime, bay rum, vanilla, etc. All told, there are around 100 essential oils available to consumers.

I have a thick beard but when I use a dime sized drop of oil or balm it seems to disappear from my hands right away and not make a difference to my beard. I start with the beard but by the time I get to the other side of my beard or my mustache and sideburns it seems the oil/balm is all but gone. Should I use more?

Beardbrand is a men’s grooming company that is helping men keep on growing by providing education and tools for urban beardsmen to master their morning routine. We’ve found that confidence starts with self investment, and allows men to do great things for their families, co-workers, and community. We are working to break down the negative stereotypes that surround bearded men, and show the world it’s the man who matters, not the way he looks.
The highest ranking Ancient Egyptians grew hair on their chins which was often dyed or hennaed (reddish brown) and sometimes plaited with interwoven gold thread. A metal false beard, or postiche, which was a sign of sovereignty, was worn by kings and (occasionally) ruling queens. This was held in place by a ribbon tied over the head and attached to a gold chin strap, a fashion existing from about 3000 to 1580 BC.
Dehydration, has, unfortunately, an ugly effect, for our skin, but also for everything that is attached to it. As a general rule, not drinking enough water for a longer period of time can have some ugly consequences. Like a very tired complexion, full of spots or a very dull and wiry bear, lacking shine and health.

As a control product it is designed to help give shape and keep down stray hairs. It may take a few tries to get the amount right but once you do you’ll be ready to hit the town.
That, in fact, is the million-dollar question. Scientists still aren’t sure how exactly Minoxidil promotes hair growth, although they do know that it’s a potassium channel opener that stimulates blood circulation in hair follicles. Better blood flow means more hormones and nutrients reach your hair’s roots while stimulating growth.
Never neglect the ‘stache. That strip of hair grown above the upper lip is what gives most beard styles consistency, and one way of upholding it is with moustache wax. Percy Nobleman’s moustache wax is loaded with natural ingredients from beeswax to argan oil to keep skin feeling and smelling good.
Yes, your beard lives on your face, but it’s not sentient. It doesn’t control you. There’s still a person behind the beard. Whether you’re growing a beard, have one, or choose not to have one, you’ve probably experience some sort of criticism about your facial hair. It can be about how your beard looks, the patches, people not understanding why you’re growing a beard/mustache. It can also be an internal process; beard envy is a real thing. So, let’s dive into these issues so you can combat them and keep on growing!
Great article! I’ve had quite a lot of issues where my face is itching when trying to grow a beard which has put me off it every time. I decided a few months back that I’ll grow a beard no matter what and started using beard oils to relieve the itching. I’ve tried quite a few, but the best so far is Unicuscent Green leaves. A friend recommended it and works fantastic with a lovely smell so I don’t need a perfume anymore. They only deliver to UK though
Unlike most OTC products, Powell’s is FDA-approved—something not mandatory for non-prescription topicals like their beard tonic. It’s also USDA approved, which also isn’t required for their purposes—it’s an extra step they chose to take to ensure their customers of their exacting quality standards.
We don’t use any silicones, sulfates, or parabens in our oils to give you the best possible outcome for your beard. Silicones aren’t inherently bad, but they coat your beard hairs and prevent them from getting the nutrients they need, plus they require more effort and chemicals to wash out. On top of that, they mask dry hair and split ends so you only have the illusion of conditioned hair.
