You could try http://themodcabin.com/product/unscented-essential-beard-balm-conditioner/. It’s all natural, and there’s no scent added. It’s got a very simple list of ingredients, so you know what you’re putting on your face and beard. Also, keep in mind that it’s normal for your hair to grow in at slightly different rates. It’s important to exfoliate your face gently to remove dead skin cells and to help unclog your pores so that your facial hair isn’t impeded when it’s growing out. Also avoid shampoos and harsh chemicals when you wash your face and beard. I’d recommend using an all natural, unscented soap such as http://themodcabin.com/product/essential-soap-unscented/, or our cleansing oil (which does have some essential oils in it) http://themodcabin.com/product/cleansing-oil/. The cleansing oil is very gentle and won’t strip your face and beard of their natural lipid layer, which will help keep your skin and facial hair healthy and moisturized.
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.
“Throughout military history, beards were perfectly okay and seen as a sign of strength [with a few exceptions],” says Antonio Centeno, former U.S. Marine Corps officer and founder of the style consulting resource, RealMenRealStyle.com. “But we’ve been clean-shaven in the military since World War I, thanks to the need to form a seal when wearing gas masks.” That quirk of technology soon trickled into civilian life and the workplace, and within a generation, our grandfathers were sporting a smooth face, suddenly the sign of dignity.
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.
Beard balm is a great all-in-one beard moisturizer, conditioner and styling aid that is especially helpful for people who want their beards to look thicker. For best results, wash your beard with an all-natural beard soap and apply beard balm when dry. Scrape out a dime sized amount of balm and rub between your palms. Run your fingers through your facial hair, starting from the neck and working up, making sure to rub balm into the skin where your beard grows.
Don’t let itching deter you! If you experience itching, keep your skin clean by daily shampooing (with a gentle shampoo) and optionally using a conditioner. Your skin will eventually adjust to the new situation. Itching should be only a temporary phase. If you happen to need more relief, try applying some baby oil or moisturizing lotion to the areas that are itching. That should help to soothe your skin while you go through the transition.
There are also two types of hair that grow on your face, vellus (the light, blond, more youthful hair) and terminal (the darker, coarser hair). As you age your vellus hairs will convert into terminal hairs and those are the hairs that become a beard in a traditional sense.
New beard hairs can feel like “a cactus poking your skin” says Olvera, but the prickly sensation subsides after a week, so stay tough. “It helps to brush the hair so everything grows in the same direction.” Try one of these ten grooming products—especially the beard softener and beard oil.
Wizard beards, or American Civil War-type throwback beards will take some time to cultivate, but essentially involve growing the beard out as long as possible, but still trimming the neck periodically, as well as the mustache, so it gets out of the way of your lip.[4]

It’s my goal with this section to index all beard oils. I update this list frequently, adding new beard oils to the top, with a brief description of what makes the oil unique. Do you know of a beard oil that I missed? Let me know in the comments, and I will add it to this list.
A square jaw is ultra-manly, but if your jaw is exceptionally wide, go for a beard style that’s shorter on the sides. If your chin is small, you can grow the beard longer there. The result is that you’ve made your chin larger and your jaw smaller, averaging out your facial features.
This men’s beard trimmer is a product that could be rightfully tagged as “one for all”. Possibly containing no cons, the only discomfort that could bother the users is, understanding the different attachments.
Tacitus states that among the Catti, a Germanic tribe (perhaps the Chatten), a young man was not allowed to shave or cut his hair until he had slain an enemy. The Lombards derived their name from the great length of their beards (Longobards – Long Beards). When Otto the Great said anything serious, he swore by his beard, which covered his breast.

This one is a Remington, a name that is the brainchild of cordless and rechargeable shavers. The brand is popular for introducing a large number of reasonably priced electric shavers into the market. The F5-5800 comes with an intercept shaving technology that helps to cut the long beard before giving a final close shave. This makes it the best beard trimmer for long beards. We get you a detailed review of the product.
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.
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.
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?
To really help these products do what they need to do make sure that you’re massaging the oils and balms fully through your beard and the skin beneath your beard so the roots get the moisture they need to become softer, and therefore, more manageable. A firm boar’s hair brush is a great tool to exfoliate the skin beneath your beard and distribute the oils through your beard fully. You can purchase one here: http://themodcabin.com/product/boars-hair-beard-brush/
The beauty with beards is that you can style it in many different ways. I recommend that you “grow what you got” which means, based on your beards genetics try to grow a style that fits your best parts of the beard. If you grow a full thick mustache – don’t trim that bad boy off.
We’d absolutely recommend beard oil for a starter beard. When you’re starting your beard, it’s easy to forget that the hair forming under the skin at the root needs to be cared for properly so that it can grow in strong and healthy. For that reason it’s important to keep your skin moisturized, and our beard oil has the ingredients to do that. It’s a light oil that absorbs into hair and skin easily, and won’t leave you feeling greasy.
The Braun 9 series has an extra trimmer as compared to the series 7, which the brand calls ‘Direct and cut’. The trimmer is used to align the hair that grow in different directions and then cuts them away.
Beards can start growing anywhere from your teenage years to your late 20s and early 30s (and even later for some folks – seriously). Unfortunately, there is no way to control when your beard comes in, how thick it is, or its color or texture. All that is tied in with your DNA, much like your height and hair color. The key to physically growing a beard is patience. Every beard is completely unique and your own, sometimes you just need to wait a few years before it really finds its shape. In a world of instant gratification, we know this can suck. Remember that all of the bearded men you see online and on TV weren’t born with the beard they have now.  They too may have been late bloomers, or battled patchy beards in their youth.

Your facial hair grows in fuller and darker as you get older. If you’re disappointed by patchy or sparse facial hair at age 15, don’t be; by 17, you could very well have a thick manly man’s beard. Most usually, facial hair will truly start thickening around your late teens and early twenties, which is when you really want to be conscious of learning how to grow a beard the right way to set up future good habits and train your beard as it grows.
Wash your face thoroughly before you apply Minoxidil foam and rinse your hands and fingers under cold water to prevent the foam from dissolving before you apply it. How much you use with each application is up to you, but the suggested amount is only enough that would fill half of the container’s cap.

I am growing a beard, the bottom is ok, but the sides are a bit thin. In addition I am allergic to parfum/fragrence and since everything I use is unscented, any scent these days is way too strong for me. What kind of product would you recommend?
Handmade wooden combs  on the other hand is more of a style then a need. They are formed from one solid block of wood or two pieces jointed together, and have their teeth sawed into them, then sanded down to be nice and smooth. They are going to cost more money, and they are going to be a special order item from a local wood worker. Expect to pay $75 and up for quality crafted item such a wood comb. The only place I know that has one always listed is Offerman’s Wood Shop. Its called a “Mustache Comb,” but I would definitely recommend it for someone with a long beard…also who wouldn’t want a product made by Nick Offerman’s shop?
