Dreaming up an impeccable beard is one thing, actually accomplishing that task is quite another. While to most people who haven’t patiently fought through the long season of growing out the perfect facial fro, it may seem like an easy, care-free task. In actuality though, growing a beard requires much more than just the ability to grow hair on your chin and cheeks. It takes patience, care, responsibility, and perseverance.
A good beard starts with good skin. It is the soil in which your peach fuzz grows in to become a mighty oak of a beard. Properly moisturized skin is essential for protecting the roots of your beard, as well as preventing flakiness and itching. Meanwhile, the beard hair itself must also be moisturized if you want to be able to style it and prevent it from damage. Once again, the naturally moisturizing butter and oils come together in Wild Willies Beard Butter to get to the source of your beard growth and protect it at the root.
If you’ve absolutely maximized your beard growing potential and you are into your 30’s then maybe you can start to consider options that will help give you a fuller thicker beard. You have pretty much two options, one is to take minoxidil (aka Rogaine) and the other option is to get hair implants.
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.
To trim your mustache, first comb it straight down. Then use either the beard trimmer or scissors. Start in the middle and trim first towards one side of the mouth, then towards the other. Normally, you should not shave or trim the top of the mustache. It usually looks best if you let it grow all the way up to your nose.
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. 🙂
Brushing is good for your beard. If you’re going to brush your beard then you should brush no more than once a day. Doing it more than once a day is over kill to your beard. Brushing too often will create split ends, damaging the facial hair you’ve worked so hard to grow. Make it part of your daily ritual in morning. For the best results: brush after you shower, for it will make it will make your beard look nice and tidy for the day.
This lightweight beard oil is designed to care for your beard and the skin beneath it without being too “in your face” (see what we did there?). The scent, a blend of cedarwood, sandalwood and eucalyptus is both masculine and sweet, while the oil itself is soft and moisturising. It’s also much less greasy than other products, which means that your beard will be feeling silky and dry almost straight away.
The 7200’s integrated vacuum system promises to catch up to 90% of your stray hairs thanks to a high-velocity motor and fan system that provide powerful suction to lift and capture maximum hairs. But the vacuum system isn’t the only reason this trimmer is a go-to choice.
If you want to know how to grow a thicker beard, there is one truth you must accept: You aren’t going to miraculously grow hair where it doesn’t already grow. Make your peace with that first. We’re here to help you thicken your beard, but we aren’t going to lie to you, either.
Philips Norelco 9100 is the world’s first to feature an inbuilt laser guide to help shave or trim precisely to your desired length and the style. This feature of the shaver also makes it the best beard trimmer for shaping. With the feature of 17 length settings, it can literally customize the kind of look you have wanted to get.
Now that you’ve chosen your go-to beard oil, it’s time to take it for a spin. And, really, there’s not a lot to applying beard oil – put a couple of drops of it in the palm of your hand, then use your fingers to gently rub it on and inside of your beard.
Mountaineer Brand is a trusted brand in the beard product space. They’ve produced several items with overwhelming reviews. We’ve reviewed several of their products on BeardBro, and their balm is no different.
The relationship between beard health and body health is a close one. If you have a well-balanced, healthy diet, not only will you reap the benefits, but your beard has a much better chance to bloom. To really in tip-top shape you’ll need to keep an eye on these foods.
Avoid man-made chemicals in cosmetics, especially BPA, parabens, and phthlates. They are all proven antiandrogens and can lower testosterone and DHT, inhibiting beard growth. Especially avoid using moisturizers with these on facial hair area!
This will help nourish facial hair at the roots. Reverse and run your fingers through your beard in a downward motion from top to bottom, spreading the balm down the hair follicles. Don’t forget your moustache and the hair around your mouth. Brush the balm through your beard with a boars hair beard brush to distribute the balm evenly through your beard. Use the boars hair brush to straighten your beard, or scrunch facial hair in fists to accentuate curl. Use up to three times a day as needed. All natural beard balms containing shea butter and beeswax can be left in until you wash your beard. Beard balms containing petroleum jelly should be rinsed out nightly to avoid damage to facial hair.
Be sure to follow a regular brushing or combing regimen for your beard to encourage your beard to grow in a uniform direction to prevent future ingrown hairs. Try something like this Beard Brush and Beard Comb Kit for Men by Repsol Care. It’s made with natural materials like boar bristles and real wood, and with the combo kit, you’ll be sure to have the right tool at all times.
Do you exfoliate? If you have a beard (and even if you don’t), your skin will thank you for it. Using grade-A facial scrubs will help you ensure that you’re really getting all the gunk out from underneath your facial hair before you apply beard oil.
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?
Once your beard really starts to come in, you can shape it. For noobs, it’s important to keep it simple and pick proven styles that suit your face shape until you develop a better eye for beards. (And if you are completely devoid of all artistic talent or discernment, don’t be ashamed to go to a barber at this point—he or she will get you on the right track.)
The Series 3500 is relatively lightweight and has an easy-to-hold ergonomic design. You’re able to maintain a solid grip even as you’re maneuvering the trimmer around those hard to reach areas of your beard and face.
Sometimes beards are called “flavor savers” for a reason. It is possible to get food, lint, and other junk stuck in your beard, if it grows especially long. Comb it regularly to keep it from becoming a bird’s nest.
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. Other good foods are: spinach, nuts, avocados, olives, broccoli, and olive oil. Brett wrote an excellent article over on Art of Manliness about naturally boosting your testosterone.
While most manmade chemicals for topical use in the US aren’t inherently dangerous—and there are laws to prevent companies from using them—there’s still something refreshing about a company that uses natural ingredients. Wild Willies doesn’t use manmade chemicals, which means no synthetic fragrance or preservatives or dyes. What you get is what you see (and smell).
