Towel dry it when you finish. Use a blow dryer if needed. But no matter your choice, be gentle. As previously said, your beard, while attached to your face, is alive. You don’t want to upset it! It has many ways to get its revenge!
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?
A beard trimmer is what its name suggests – its job is to trim your beard and maintain it at the length you desire. Trimmers aren’t used to shave your hair clean and down to your skin, like an electric razor. In fact, a trimmer’s blades should rarely, if ever, touch your skin.
For the “euro style, corporate look” I’d go with a 1 day to 2 week look. A nice stubble, and trim using clippers on the lowest setting as needed. Do not trim up the neck line or cheek line as the natural stubble look is what you should be aiming for.
Your early to late twenties is when your beard will generally reach its adult thickness and hair growth pattern. What that entails is all dependent on your genetics, but you can help things along by following the best beard care and grooming practices detailed throughout the rest of this article.
Be conservative when you’re using both products. While using both in appropriate amounts can really level up your beard game, it’s also easy to overdo it. Start with just a little bit of product, and slowly work your way up to what you need.
Beard Oil is a combination of oils and vitamins that you apply to your beard that is essential for maintaining your beard, mustache, goatee and other other form of facial hair.

I was just recently introduced to beard oil by a former co worker and was wondering. I’ve already got an inch to an inch and a half of beard. Would beard oil still benefit me much or is it better to start fresh?

Hi, I’m hoping you can help me! My partner wants a beard trimmer for touch up of face, neck and to trim body hair. He has a good set of clippers that he uses once a week for all over head and face and will keep using those but use the trimmer for body hair. One make or break thing is he wants it to have a charging dock. Do you have any suggestions? If it had a ear and nose trimmer that would be a bonus. I’m having trouble, please help.
When trimming the mustache, I recommend you use a pair of scissors over clippers. This will give you a little more control and only cuts a few hairs at a time. With the cheek line try to go with your natural line and only trim off the one or two stragglers that are outside that line.
Control can be tricky when you’re hiking a mountain trail, or crossing a stream to find the perfect trout. And don’t forget camping with your significant other. But Rocky Mountain Beard Balm will tame even the most epic of beards, making a strong contender for best beard balm for long beard.
Multi-use beard trimmers have a wider range of length settings that enable you to trim your beard, head, and body. The Panasonic ER-GB40-S, for example, has 19 length settings and is effective for trimming your chest and other parts of your body (you’ll find it listed in our beard trimmer reviews).

Beardruff is formed when a natural oil in your skin called sebum oil is dried up by your hair follicles. Beard balm, like beard oil, is made of ingredients that closely resemble sebum oil and adds much-needed hydration to your skin.
When it’s cleaned and properly groomed, it’s almost like that sense of order is imparted upon the dog. Suddenly it’s better behaved, more elegant, more like those hunting dogs you read about as a kid.
Hey guys. My beard is pretty thick and most of the time pretty unmanageable haha. My hair is somewhat coarse, wirey, curly and generally kinda just grows all over the place. It tangles and mats up and pulls and catches something fierce. I can hardly brush it with it catching and pulling. Even when damp or after fresh oil it still pulls. Plus I have a hard time getting oil to the skin bc of the thickness I have. Not to mention under my jawline doesn’t seem to want to grow down. It’s kinda like kudzu vine. It’s just wraps around itself and doesn’t provide and length. The hairs from above the jawline and my cheeks grow down and are fairly manageable but the underside not so much. I can brush it down 20 times and it just knots right back up. It’s got thickness and fullness but I’m not able to show my true length (which I could be proud of if I could display it) any recommendations on how to try and tame this “briar patch”?

In short, beard balm offers many of the same benefits of beard oil while providing the kind of hold needed in a thicker beard. The butter provides extra moisture while making it easier to spread to spread the balm throughout your beard.
When you’re confident that you’ve spread the beard oil out evenly, grab a beard comb and gently comb your beard to shape. Beard oil doesn’t hold a shape very well. If you want to maintain a certain shape, then I suggest you try some beard gloss. However, oil will give your beard weight and give it a nice sheen. Comb it out to brighten up this sheen and order un-orderly strands that will try to fly out here and there.
If there is one thing Professor Fuzzworthy is known for, it’s the scent of their products. We actually reviewed their beard shampoo and only had solid things to say about it. The scent isn’t overpowering by any means, but it is definitely a refreshing, clean smell. Definitely a great mix of smelling clean without making me want to pass out. They advertise as being a manly woody scent which is definitely accurate. Some have noted the scent is too strong for them, some like it, some don’t.

Once you hop out of the shower you’ll want to follow with your traditional beard care routine which should involve either a beard oil or Utility Balm. Read this article which goes into greater detail about how to use and apply beard oil.

The harder they have to work the more irritation you’ll have. It’s ok to apply a couple times a day.
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.
All of these questions apply when choosing to purchase balm or oil. If you finish reading this article and still can’t make up your mind, we recommend purchasing both (you can never have too many options when it comes to caring for your beard).
Beard balm is one of the most versatile beard care products out there. It can function as a solid beard oil, a wax and a leave-in conditioner because it provides hold, hydration and manageability all in one convenient product.
Another possible reason for Minoxidil’s hair-growth powers is that it stimulates the enzyme prostaglandin synthase-1 via the immune system. Scientists have long speculated that hair loss is somehow involved with the immune system.
