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.
It’s not what you do during the first week of beard growth but what you don’t do. Indeed, it not only feels weird on your face, especially if it’s your first time growing a beard, but it may also look weird. The temptation to scrap the project may become overpowering. But giving waving the white flag at this stage isn’t how you grow a full beard.
Try and look for a beard trimmer that is going to dutifully serve you for the long haul. Some qualities to look for that suggest high-quality build and construction include models made from stainless steel, and those that have solid grip control.
Also, what you wash your face and beard with matters, and you want to make sure that you’re not using anything with harsh chemicals. Keep your face exfoliated, because clogged pores can cause ingrown hairs, and inhibit hair growth. You can check out our all natural soap, or our cleansing oil.
Beard balm is a versatile product. You don’t need to fully apply it as it can be used sparingly in problem areas such as the sideburns. 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.
Meanwhile, there are some vitamins that have some more exotic ingredient than the standard B vitamins and iron that most people already know about. Collagen is one of these ingredients. Supplements containing collagen are a good thing because it’s a building block of protein, which is crucial for new hair growth. Not all beard growth vitamins contain collagen, but you can supplement it with a separate collagen product if your chosen brand doesn’t have it as part of their ingredient mix.
Grow it out whenever you want. While lots of men like to grow out their beards in cold months for insulation purposes, it’s a common misconception that beards are more uncomfortable in hot weather. In fact, beards help protect from UV sun rays, and work to cool the skin during hot weather, trapping sweat close to your face, cooling as it evaporates. While the itchiness associated with beards is typically less desirable during hot weather, it’s not something that will do much to keep you warm.
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
We understand that there are some cases of beard patchiness that will never ever be remedied. However, that doesn’t mean that you need to opt for the completely shaven look either. Although we don’t suggest this to many, the best way to combat persistent beard patchiness is to simply opt for a shorter length of facial hair, going as far as what many simply consider “scruff.” Much like baldness, it’s much less noticeable when your facial hair is already at a short length so the areas that simply don’t grow hair become less apparent in comparison to those that do.
Now, how thick your beard is and how fast it grows vary a lot based on genetics. But the important thing for young guys to know is that if you’re under 21, you’re nowhere near the mature phase of beard growth, so if you’re expecting fine beard hair or patchiness, know that this isn’t a sign that you can’t grow a beard. Give it a few years, and you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised.

Vinod, you shouldn’t be buying trimmers if you clean shave. Trimmers are meant to be used to maintain and trim a beard, not shave them off. While you can have a close shave with a trimmer, it wouldn’t be any good as compared to a close shave with a shaver. If you trust philips then there are plenty of good shavers and trimmers around from philips. I am assuming you live in India. 🙂
No matter what kind of beard trim you’re hoping to achieve, the 5100 has you covered. Norelco has put ease and convenience into their products, all to the benefit of the consumer. This trimmer has pretty much everything you need.
The ShippingPass assortment is continually being optimized. Products are added and removed for lots of reasons, but the main reason is to show items that we’re 100% sure we can deliver within the promised timeline.
It’s important to note that full beard maturity may not happen until your mid-twenties. It’s not just your brain that continues to develop into your mid-twenties—it’s your hormones as well. Simply put, you’re not fully baked until you’re in your mid-twenties, so you shouldn’t expect to physically appear as a full-grown adult male until then either.
The verdict: For the groomist who constantly forgets to charge his electronics, Wahl’s strong, durable stainless steel offering has enough battery life — four hours of run time at that — to get you through several shaves without being attached to a power cord. Yet despite carrying a lower MSRP than the competition, its precision factor is proof the trimmer can compete with some of the higher-priced models on the market. The lightweight profile has enough girth to maintain good grip for passing through coarse hair, whereas the smaller cutter gives leeway to attack tight corners. Reviewers claim the blades work remarkably well on both beards and mustaches. Much of the accessories that come bundled with the Lithium Ion aid in providing the trim you need; these include four options: a detail shaver, ear and nose detailer, and T-blade heads. Clip-on trimmer guides supply even more options, for up to 17 different trimmer lengths.
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.
There is no side effect. This oil will take care of itching and dry skin, not cause them. It will only cause healthier beard hair and skin, faster and thicker growth overtime. It is safe for all hair and skin types.
While the price may be a bit exorbitant, many users think it’s worth the expense for a lightweight model at only 1 pound that feels good in your hand and comes with a two-year warranty – not to mention its superb performance capabilities.
Unfortunately I’m not attending Hogwarts, but this works like magic. Definitely helps in keeping the the hair hydrated and feeling soft. Some people have noted that it cured their beard itch in one application. The consistency is a bit thinner than other balms, likely due to the ingredients allowing for a more buttery feel. Something to note is that this isn’t really a “wax” the hold-ability is pretty lackluster. If that’s what you are after, then we wouldn’t suggest this product.
There are plenty of reasons why the five beard trimmers reviewed above are on our ‘best of’ list for 2018. We took into account a lot of factors: each trimmer’s versatility, ease of use, the number of (useful) attachments, whether it was good for both wet and dry shaving, and durability.
Don’t blame yourself if you fall in love with this aesthetically designed model! You will know what it exactly means when you will look at the incredible design of TRYM II. Crafted in the top grade metal combined with a shiny black plastic, this is one of the most eye catching electric beard trimmer you would come across. The story does not end at its plush design; let’s look at some of its features.
Crisp. Refreshing. Just a couple of ways to help describe Beardbrand Tea Tree Beard Oil and it’s intoxicating scent. Billed by the folks at Beardbrand as their most crisp and fresh-smelling blend, potential users are asked to imagine themselves living on a Swiss mountaintop and taking that first mouthful of brisk morning air.
Like with all things, this new routine may take some time to perfect. Every beardsman is different, so every beardsman will have their own routine that they grow to master. Be patient, and don’t be afraid to experiment.
It is important to mention that the scent they give out is not too strong, and will not turn you into a walking cloud of odors. You will have nice smelling beard, but not the one that is choking everyone that gets within a 10 foot radius. Typically the scents come from the likes of cedar or maple wood all the way to the fruit and citrus spectrum of lemon and orange. There are numerous scents and you will quickly find the one perfect for you, or one with no scent at all, if that is what you like the most.
We’ve recently released a new addition to our Beard Care line, a Beard Balm. We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding the difference between Beard Oil and Beard Balm, so I thought I’d help clarify in this post.
According to Bosselman, “Quality oils like this can help to rebalance your skin’s own oil production. It’s a sort of fight-fire-with-fire situation — oils can make your skin less oily. If you’re concerned about an ingredient, Google it with the word ‘comedogenic.’ If it contains a pore-clogging ingredient, don’t buy it.”
