Repeat after us: a clean beard is a fuller beard. Much like your head hair, when you keep your beard clean it will appear much fuller than if you let it become too oily or completely dried out. Striking the right balance is important and our suggestion is to invest in some good beard wash and softener to help keep your beard clean without completing torching it. Establishing the right beard grooming routine is key to ensuring your beard stays full and healthy and if you can get into a routine for the entire month, you’ll definitely be able to see the results after a short amount of time.
Lucky Scruff has some night products also, esp the hand made soap for beards. He offers 3 different kinds right now. The beard oils, while the 3 on his main page I didn’t care for, the beard of the month club has some better ones. (Scent wise, the conditioning aspects of the main oils are awesome, but I like the oils that have a scent and I found no scent in the 3 samples)
Use the convenient glass dropper to put a couple drops of Beard Oil into your palm. Then rub hands together. Massage upward into the beard and skin under your chin and cheeks. To finish, groom beard down and style as usual. Wait for the compliments
The verdict: A mainstay at barbershops and salons, Andis applies its iconic shaving pedigree to the T-Outliner, which – like the company’s heritage in grooming – is hard to match. Anyone who’s ever owned this beauty knows it’s manufactured to last, with an indestructible shell built like a tank to take the abuse you’ll put it through over the years. Premium carbon-steel blades are specially hardened to provide longer shelf life for cutting. Adjusting the blades will create more room to personalise shaves, with a handful of consumer reviews indicating that an up-close trim leaves a “5-o’clock shadow.” The high-speed magnetic motor operates quietly and smoothly, resulting in a comfortable trim along your jawline or behind the ear. Oiling the blades before putting it to use might sound like an inconvenience; still, it’s a trivial compromise most avid groomers are willing to live with once they witness the gains in performance.
The natural highly conditioning ingredients in Smooth Viking’s Beard Balm nourish your hair from the skin to the root to the very tip of the hair shaft, tackling the issue of rehabilitating your beard head-on. The result is better, thicker beard growth.
Eat well and get adequate nutrition. Remember, inadequate protein intake and vitamin deficiencies are common causes of stunted hair growth. Go for grilled chicken breast and a decent beard growth vitamin, like Wild Willies Bad Ass Beard Growth Dietary Supplement, which nourishes follicles to encourage growth and simultaneously calms inflammation that may be hampering beard growth.
The first ingredients in your recipe are your carrier oils. Basically, mix and match your oils to get about 1oz’s worth (you can always do more or less as desired; I have 1oz bottles, so that’s how much I made). In this first recipe I measured out half an ounce each of jojoba oil and sweet almond oil. You could also simply use a single carrier oil rather than mixing. Again, it’s about scent and the health benefits accrued, as well as what feels best on your skin. Experiment with various combinations of carrier oils to find what you like best.
So, if you’re looking to keep your beard trimmed for a certain look, your trimmer is the tool you need. If you’re looking for a clean and smooth look, reach for your shaver. You won’t get that look with your trimmer.
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.
Hi, I keep a very short beard (a little longer than a stubble, maybe 1/8th inch or so). Would you recommend balm or oil to keep it soft and neat? If oil, would grapeseed and/or avocado oil be good? 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?
Beardsley Lotion for Beards is a gentle, Bay Rum-scented beard moisturizer that is infused with keratin to nourish your beard. (I know I’ve railed against keratin in this guide, but I want to stress it is fine to use it topically and it has a lot of benefits topically.)
Add these steps in, and your facial hair should take more shape and feel softer. Plus, if you have beardruff, your facial hair is probably soaking up the oils from your skin and leaving it dry and flakey. Getting into this good routine of cleansing, conditioning, and putting some good beard oil on will help keep you free from flakes, soft, and style ready.
CanYouHandleBar is very open about what’s in their products. They list the ingredients in several places, where-as some other brands make it difficult to find before you buy. The ingredients are as follows: Lanolin, castor seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E oil, and shea butter. The ingredients are very simple yet effective at nourishing your beard and encouraging beard growth.
The key to choosing the right beard style for your face shape really boils down to trimming and styling your beard so that it complements the shape of your face. What that means, basically, is that you want your beard to make smaller than average facial features look larger and larger than average facial features look smaller. Essentially, you’re styling your beard to even out your face, which immediately makes you more handsome.
Great article…I’ve followed your posts, Good work, I’ve been growing out my beard for about a month now my upper face cheek hair doesn’t grow as my lower jaw and under, Really thick on my jaw and under but barely anything on my upper face, Really feel like growing out jus a very small beard just want it to grow thicker on top, any recommendations on oils?
For general beard itching, it’s important to follow proper beard hygiene. Remember that beards catch a lot of debris like pollen and bacteria. While this is great for your health, because you’re not actually ingesting these unfriendlies, it can still lead to a lot of skin irritation as your beard grows out. To solve this problem, cleanse with a quality beard shampoo like Medicine Man’s Anti-Itch Beard Wash; what’s great about this product is, not only does it clear away the nasty debris, it’s specifically designed for men with itchy beards like yourself.
But now that you have three months since you started, you realize that it’s not such a piece of cake after all. Your beard has a decent length, but the quality is not the best? It’s a bit wiry and difficult to manage?
Thanks for your question! We highly recommend sticking with all natural products for your face and beard. A lot of cleansers and shampoos have harsh chemicals that can dry out and damage hair follicles, causing brittleness. I recommend our Core Beard Kit. It has a natural soap, beard oil, and beard balm to keep your face and beard clean, healthy, and strong. Use the soap daily or every other day if you live in a very dry climate. Use the beard oil morning and night. And apply the beard balm on top of the beard oil to help you set and style your beard. It’s a very natural hold, that will help tame fly-aways, as well as seal in the moisture from the beard oil. Finish with a good Boar’s Hair Brush to make sure the oils are distributed thoroughly through your beard.
It’s 2017! Which means you’ve probably already heard about beard oil and all the awesome things it can do for your beard. However, if you haven’t, Eric is here to fill you in on not only what this wonderful product is, but how you apply it to your beard!
Oil and Balm are very similar in that they both condition and style your beard. The main difference is that beard balm will do a little more to shape and hold your beard. Beard oil is usually enough for short beards, beard balm gives a little more aid to longer, wilder beards.
Having protein daily will also increase your teen son’s chances of growing facial hair and growing a mustache. Some of the best sources of protein include meat, eggs, lentils, nuts, and beans. Depending on whether your teen follows a non-vegetarian or vegetarian diet, you can ask him to eat accordingly.
The thickness of utility balm is also functional – it has just enough hold to comb down stubborn beard hairs and fly-aways that go against your beard’s shape and grooming goals. It can also be used as a low-hold styling agent for your mustache and sideburns for a bit more finish around the edges.
