I have a long thin beard.. about 2 inches but uneven around my cheeks. I would want to have it thicker and fuller. I use oil and then balm to seal in the moisture.. I also wash my beard every other day with a beard shampoo company from an article I’ve read. But I’ve noticed I’ve been getting acne on my neck and the outer edges of my beard.. is it the oils I use or the balm, or both? Can you help?
Beard Balm on the other hand, still offers the benefits of Beard Oil, but with hold. Big Red Beard Balm contains the nourishing oils of our Beard Oil, alongside Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Beeswax. This allows you to retain the perks of the Beard Oil, but to also tame, shape, and hold the beard in place. Aside from the benefits of the oils in the Balm, Shea and Cocoa butter offer extraordinary moisturizing properties that penetrate the hair shaft, offering increased hair strength, damage repair, and is even claimed to promote hair growth.

Rest assured, you’ll have plenty of options while looking for a beard trimmer. There are many types of trimmers on the market with lots of different features – from corded to cordless, the number and kind of attachments, and different settings.
I’ve been shaving with an older, more basic iteration of this beard trimmer for three years; that one’s inability to hold a charge these days is what prompted this search. But the new one has two updates that made it the greatest one I tried: (1) a convenient radial dial that lets you easily choose lengths as short a 0.5 mm (and in 0.5 mm increments up from there), which makes it plenty versatile; and (2) a vacuum-suction feature that collects the majority of your shaven hairs — up to 90 percent of them, according to the company, but who really knows? All I can say is that this is a godsend. No man likes wiping his (or his boyfriend’s) stubble from the sink, and I’m willing to deal with this shaver’s slightly clunky hand-feel to reap that reward.
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.
A lot of people don’t realize the importance of Vitamin C in collagen production and protein synthesis. Your body can’t produce protein—and therefore a beard—without it, so it’s an important ingredient in today’s best beard vitamins, like Virilitas Beard & Hair Growth Support, which has levels of Vitamin C that specifically support protein synthesis for increased beard growth. Plus, it’s made in America; not only are you supporting American jobs when you buy it, you’re also buying from a company that has to comply with American product safety laws.
While the 8 length settings aren’t quite as many as some of the other beard trimmers we have reviewed, it is enough for many users who aren’t looking for anything too fancy in their beard styling endeavors.
Since a lot of people aren’t fond of the scent of lanolin, some might not like the smell if their noses are extra sensitive. However, for most, the refreshing scent covers up this issue completely, so it’s really a personal preference thing.
Hey Doug, thanks for your comment. I’ve used coconut oil as well but I haven’t noticed something like that. Does this happen no matter the amount that you apply on your beard? What kind of brand are you using? Could it be the particular brand?
Mustache wax has a stronger hold than styling balm, so a tiny bit goes a long way when it comes to unshakeable hold. As a result, a little tube of wax can last you a pretty long time. It offers a naturally flexible hold and keeps hair out of your mouth while you eat.
Beard balm or beard oil? This may be the most frequent question we get asked at The Mod Cabin. Some people say they are one and the same. This simply is not true. Beard balm is a pomade made by mixing, heating and cooling moisturizers and sealants. Beard oil is a leave in moisturizer and conditioner made by mixing carrier oils with essential oil blends or in some cases fragrance oils. In this post we will explain the differences between beard balm and beard oil and when to use each. We will start with beard balm.

To apply beard wash, simply put a small amount in your hand and rub it directly into your wet beard in the shower. You don’t need to apply it every day unless you work in an occupation (construction worker, etc.) in which dirt and grime get into your beard daily. If you spend most of your day in front of a computer, then a daily beard washing isn’t necessary, unless you spill your lunch and dinner on it (hey, it happens).

While you can use any good quality styling scissor for trimming your bear, it’s best to use a compact scissor like Percy Nobleman’s Beard and Mustache Scissors, because they’re small enough for you to do fine detail work that’s typically necessary if you have a mustache.
Harvey suggests using balm if you’re rocking shorter facial scruff and using the oil if you’ve reached the bush leagues. Take a 5p-sized amount – your beard oil may come with a dropper – and work in it through your facial hair evenly with your hands. It’s best to apply the balm or oil when your skin is slightly moist so the best time may be just after a shower or washing your face. It’s also key to comb or brush your beard after applying.
Ibn Hazm reported that there was scholarly consensus that it is an obligation to trim the moustache and let the beard grow. He quoted a number of hadith as evidence, including the hadith of Ibn Umar quoted above, and the hadith of Zayd ibn Arqam in which Mohammed said: “Whoever does not remove any of his moustache is not one of us”. Ibn Hazm said in al-Furoo'[clarification needed]: “This is the way of our colleagues [i.e., group of scholars]”. Inversely, in Turkish culture, moustaches are common.
What will help your beard grow better is a boost in testosterone. To boost testosterone, eat more red meats, avoid soy based products, and lift weights.
