We don’t use any silicones, sulfates, or parabens in our oils to give you the best possible outcome for your beard. Silicones aren’t inherently bad, but they coat your beard hairs and prevent them from getting the nutrients they need, plus they require more effort and chemicals to wash out. On top of that, they mask dry hair and split ends so you only have the illusion of conditioned hair.
At 3 months and longer, you’ll only want to wash your beard about once at week or as needed. Again, a thorough rinsing daily is also recommended. Apply daily beard oil for moisturizing, and trim only with scissors. Never trim or shave off your beard if you are depressed or under the influence of alcohol.
Hi Sagar. Wash your face with The Mod Cabin’s birch tar or amber resin soap, then apply backwoods beard balm and comb through it with our boars hair beard brush. Also make sure you are getting enough water in your diet and you may also want to look for a biotin supplement to help your facial hair grow in thicker. The Mod Cabin’s beard kit is a great way to start.
Did you know the beard is a historical emblem of power? That’s why influential men sport this style. From Abraham Lincoln, Chuck Norris, to ZZ Top, even Santa and Jesus know how to rock a good, thick beard. It doesn’t matter if you can’t grow super long facial hair, you can make sure that the hair you grow is healthy and growing at its own max capacity. The biggest mistake men make is focusing on the belief that they cannot grow a beard at all, which is extremely rare.
No matter what kind of beard you have, we’ll always support you in your attempts to grow it fuller, thicker, and longer. However, there comes a time for some when all of the products, tools, and patience simply outsmart genetics. This isn’t a fun realization to have, but just because you can’t grow the most epic beard of all time doesn’t mean you still can’t be part of the community! Like we always say, being a beardsman is all about being confident and believing in yourself so however you feel most comfortable.
While choosing a moisturizer or cream for the face, ask your son to use one which contains eucalyptus as one of its ingredients. Eucalyptus will help to keep your teen’s skin moisturized and hydrated, and remove any dry or rough patches. Once your teen’s skin is soft, facial hair growth is faster.

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.

For the best results: brush after you shower, for it will make it will make your beard look nice and tidy for the day.

Confucius held that the human body was a gift from one’s parents to which no alterations should be made. Aside from abstaining from body modifications such as tattoos, Confucians were also discouraged from cutting their hair, fingernails or beards. To what extent people could actually comply with this ideal depended on their profession; farmers or soldiers probably would not have grown a long beard because it would interfere with their work.
For some guys, the day they decide to let their beards grow, they are met with the beginnings of a full, dense mane of hair on their faces. And for others, they find the process to be slightly less encouraging. Sparse and wiry hairs, and hairless patches can thrust doubt into the mind of a beardsman, but we’re here to tell you that just because you’re sporting a patchy beard doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do to make it look fuller, denser, and more badass.
Basically, if you want to moisturize and nourish the beard, go for Beard Oil. If you want to moisturize, nourish, and have the hold to allow you to tame the fly-aways and shape the beard, go for Beard Balm. Personally, I use Beard Balm almost everyday and Beard Oil every couple days as a more intensive treatment. Together they work wonders and alone they are just as great, all a matter of personal preference.
Jack Black’s beard oil contains a list of certified organic ingredients designed to bring top-quality beard and skin care directly to your face, including Kalahari melon oil, vitamin E, plum oil, marula oil, brown algae, and carrot extract. The oil is vegan and cruelty free, while the scent is subtle and won’t linger all day. A balanced and hydrating blend that will leave your skin feeling soft and your beard looking shiny.
If you use a comb and scissors: Comb through the beard and cut the hair on the outside of the comb. It will take some practice to perfect this technique. It is better to err on the side of not cutting enough rather than cutting too much.
Keratin is one of the big no-go ingredients that even some otherwise high-quality beard supplements contain. Remember, consuming keratin is like eating your own fingernails, so that’s always an ingredient to avoid.
In fact, the next step – maintaining your awesome look through proper beard grooming – is just as important. It’s like owning a really nice car. Once you have it, do you neglect it through poor maintenance? Do you forget to wash it for months on end? Of course, you don’t.

Here’s a rustic-flavoured oil that will appeal to your inner lumberjack. Its scent comes from a mix of woody and nutty essential oils, and it’s made from 100% natural ingredients. First and foremost it’s a softener, making your beard… well, softer, not to mention shinier, healthier, and way less unruly. It comes with a glass dropper too, so you’ll be sure to use the exact right amount every time, with not a drop of oil going to waste.
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.
4. Be Healthy: It’s good practice to eat healthy, to exercise, to drink lots of water, get 8 hours of sleep every night, and lower your stress. Beard hairs benefit from vitamins and nutrients, just like the rest of your body (it’s also why it’s good to apply a nourishing beard oil to the whiskers). Your hair is made of proteins, so you should in turn ingest plenty of protein. If you stay hydrated, your beard is softer. If you’re well rested, your entire body stays stronger, hair health included. If you work out a lot, you keep your blood circulation up, which stimulates hair growth, which fortifies the hairs all over your body. And if you minimize stress, you lower the odds of imbalanced hormones compromising hair health—or making it fall out all together. That’s all a roundabout way to say that your beard will inherently be more relaxed, stylable, and fuller if you take care of yourself. So why the hell not?
Your entire body operates sharply and efficiently when it is well hydrated—all the way down to the cellular level. And that’s where the hair suffers, too: The cells don’t regenerate as quickly, nor do they adequately receive vitamins and nutrients since the body is unable to properly distribute these nurturing agents when it is dehydrated. So, in addition to a slower beard, a dehydrated person will also have a coarser, drier beard, too. Drink up! Collyer cites the Institute of Health when he recommends 64-80 oz. of water daily for adult men.
When you trim your long beard, keep it simple. Do only what you need to do to maintain the shape you want and no more. By practicing adequate nutrition, good beard care and some common sense, you’ll be able to get your beard to your desired length in no time.
Use tapered settings on your trimmer, if possible. On most trimmers, you can use a tapered setting, which will allow you to trim the beard in even strokes, tapering it down to your neck as you go, without having to change the height of the trimmer itself. You can taper the cheeks, the neck and the chin, if you desire, for a nice, clean look.
Hi, Kristi. What you are looking for is a stubble trimmer, click on the link we’ve made a review of those as well. Pretty much every trimmer has plastic guards nowadays. However, the i-Stubble has a non-detachable FLOATING guard, which works superbly for the ‘shadow look’. I’m confident your boyfriend won’t be disappointed.
Mystic Man’s Organic Beard Oil calls on the ancient secrets of the Mediterranean with its blend of sedr extract and organic oils. From stubble to lumberjack-like beards, Mystic Man is formulated for all lengths of facial hair.
Before we get into all the details of how to grow a beard, let’s knock out some common terminology that will help in your journey. To begin, a beard is facial hair on the cheeks, neck, chin, and upper lip. When most people hear the word “beard” they think of a full beard that is generally longer than 1/2”. That thought process considers a beard a specific facial hair style, whereas the word “beard” could also be a general term like the term “facial hair.” So, you really have a beard if you have any facial hair – from scruff to sideburns, and of course, the full beard.
