Lastly, if you’re wondering what beard is right for you, take a look at our guide on choosing a beard shape for your face: http://www.groominglounge.com/best-beard-styles-and-face-shapes-to-grow-a-beard
Located in a small town in Pennsylvania, the folks at Honest Amish make everything by hand and use only natural ingredients with no additives or chemicals. Their vegan formula – meaning the main components are made from oils and nut butters – is considered a facial butter, and they definitely keep unruly growth in check.
Carrier oils will make up the bulk of your beard oil recipes. They’re a base oil that carries the more potent essential oils and dilutes them to make them more palatable for your skin. When not diluted, essential oils can actually cause irritation and burning. There are a variety of carrier oils out there that provide different benefits, and most have just a faint scent (unlike the potent essential oils). My choices for carrier oils — jojoba, sweet almond, and coconut — were chosen mostly on availability, but they’re also the ones that are most common in beard oil recipes.
The 3500’s self-sharpening titanium blades are second to none. They cut hair cleanly, efficiently, and without skin irritation. They provide lasting sharpness and are ready to provide a clean shave whenever you need it.
Beardbrand came from very humble beginnings when we launched with a YouTube channel and a blog. Our goal from the first day was to change the way society views beardsmen and wanted to make a big mark on the world.
Beard shampoo is the backbone of beard care. It cleanses debris out of your beard as gently as possible while maintaining your beard’s ideal pH balance, unlike scalp shampoo, which can be harsh on beards.
Here you will find All Natural – Hand Made Beard care products. Our product line includes Beard Oil, Beard Balm, Mustache Wax, and more. We also offer Beard grooming supplies and gifts. All Texas Beard Company brand products are hand made in small batches so you get the highest quality product.
Good beard balms are often scented with blends of natural essential oils instead of synthetics. Synthetic fragrance oils often contain toxic chemicals which can irritate your skin and alcohol that can leave your beard more dry and brittle in the end. Remember to read the ingredients of the beard balm before buying it.
Next, apply some utility balm or beard oil. Applying conditioning agents to damp hair allows them to be absorbed more effectively. We’re also about to bust out a hairdryer, so these products will help protect your hair while you manipulate it with heat.
3. Hydrate – You want to regularly moisturize your skin but also, adding oil to your beard and to the skin below is important for hydration. Putting on a natural moisturizer will help regulate oil production on your skin (Argan oil is great for this), will keep your skin from drying out and getting cracked, and will stimulate your cells to promote hair growth. It is really important to use a natural beard oil that will hydrate your hair just like the natural oil your body produces.
Now, into the tips – if you have a perfect diet, perfect work out regimen, and perfect stress levels, then this won’t help you – but if you aren’t living the ideal life; they will help your beard grow better.
The ultimate thing is that no one is entitled to your life. No one is entitled to be your friend, to be your boss or employee. Ultimately you are in total control of how you live your life. Life is too short and too full of stress to draw the line of what’s acceptable at facial hair. If wearing a beard makes you happy; if wearing a beard is part of who you are, then fuck it – grow your beard and don’t look back.
Beard oil is an easy to use beard moisturizer and conditioner that will moisturize the skin underneath your beard, soften facial hair and help create the conditions for healthy beard growth. Beard oil is especially helpful during the first six weeks of beard growth when itching can be a problem. If you have a naturally thick, long beard, you may find beard oil easier to work with than beard balm.
Beard oils do serve as light moisturisers, but beard balms are known for delivering long-lasting ointment to thicker threads. This conditioning balm contains a collection of natural oils and shea butter to moisturise, strengthen, and thicken. It also doubles as a strong-hold product to shape and groom your whiskers into any style you fancy. Promises to tame even the biggest and most beastly of beards.
Huntsman Beard Co’s Forest Beard Oil prides itself on delivering guaranteed kissable chops – which is always a bonus, of course – but the real draw is its ability to scratch out that irritating itchy beard syndrome and reduce beard dandruff (which sounds disgusting, but let’s face it guys, it’s real – anyone with a beard and a black t-shirt can attest to that). The Forest moniker is well earned too, as it does indeed exude a nostril-pleasing whiff of pine and Moroccan cedar.
When it’s about simplicity and a more zen or “green” approach, the contents of Leven Rose is without a doubt number one. This amazing two ingredient oil will be perfect for all beginners and those who like to keep it simple. No fancy ingredients or labels that make your head spin, no false promises, only two well known ingredients: jojoba and argan oil. With Leven Rose, you can’t go wrong. Jojoba oil is the best thing for your skin because it mimics the natural oils our body produces making for a more holistic approach. This means that Leven Rose will go great with sensitive skin and acne, helping to bring back the balance in your skin and beard growth. Amazing, right?
The lift and trim technology also make for a more uniform trim. Because it can guide more hair, it’s perfect for those who have very thick or bushy hair. Moreover, the comb attachment has rounded tips to capture and trim hair without irritating your skin evenly.
As for combs I recommend either a handmade plastic or handmade wood comb. Kent Combs are simply the best plastic combs you can buy out there. They are handmade, and they care about the products they put out. The comb is first molded, then sawed so the comb has teeth, and finally sanded and polished, making a nice clean looking comb.
Beard oil acts as a moisturizer that goes straight to the hair follicle and prevents hair from growing brittle, especially in cold, windy environments as these weather conditions cause the natural moisture of the beard area to wick. Hydration around this area helps prevent flaking, dandruff and skin dryness. Some brands of beard oil may contain added vitamins or nutrients such as vitamin E. This moisturization prevents general itchiness and irritation of the skin below the beard.
BYU students led a campaign to loosen the beard restrictions in 2014, but it had the opposite effect at Church Educational System schools: some who had previously been granted beard exceptions were found no longer to qualify, and for a brief period the LDS Business College required students with a registered exception to wear a “beard badge”, which was likened to a “badge of shame”. Some students also join in with shaming their fellow beard-wearing students, even those with registered exceptions.
Natural ingredients should always be considered because unless you’re allergic, they’re likely going to be kinder to your skin; sometimes synthetic ingredients can be drying to some while being fine for others, whereas natural elements often have a more or less predictable result.
Trim with a beard trimmer every 5-10 days. After waiting for your initial grow-out period, when you’ve got the beard to its desired length, it’s important to start trimming and shaping it. Most men should trim their beards about once every two weeks or so, depending on your speed of growth, and the style of beard you want to have.
Go easy on your beard. You don’t to always be touching it, grabbing at it, brushing, or combing it. Let it breathe. Cotton sheets and pillowcases can also be a cause of the friction pulling at your beard, so maybe consider satin sheets. They are much smoother and less likely to lead to those lost hairs you find in the morning.
You might want to try out the Philips 5000 series beard trimmers. It is washable, has a dual blade, cuts from 0.4 up to 10.0mm, even closer if you take off the comb, runs for 60 minutes, recharge done in 1 hour.
As often as you want, use a eucalyptus lotion. Massage the face. It promotes blood flow/hair growth. Give it a few days to a week you will see results. Don’t shave until you have let it grow at least 4 weeks. As far as girls, some like beards and some don’t. Its for you, its your face. Be proud of what you have and be confident. Don’t worry about others opinions.
i recently started growing my beard im commited to go through all the process of having my ideal beard. I grow facial but not enough to have a legit beard. Can u plz help me? On what to order for a begginer like myself ? i would really appreciate it thanks….
It’s easy to clean this trimmer because of its fully washable heads. A cleaning brush also comes with your trimmer; all you have to do is whisk away the excess hairs and then rinse the heads under your sink.
Maestro’s Classic Beard Butter in Wiseman’s Blend combines the unique texture and styling capabilities of beard butter with frankincense, rosewood and cypress to stimulate your senses. The result is a good styling product with a chill aromatherapy vibe.
Thirdly, make sure you’re getting enough vitamins in your system for hair growth. Especially vitamins related to testosterone. We recommend L-Arginine and L-Citrulline, Tribulus, and L-Glutamine. Make sure you’re getting enough Panthenol — which is in most vitamin B complexes. And taking 1 mg of Copper every day can help fight the loss of color in your hair (always talk to your doctor first to make sure it’s safe).
The Panasonic ER-GB40-S is versatile – you can use it on your arms, chest, and other areas – and easy to use thanks to blades that are angled in a way to facilitate clean cutting. It’s also easy to clean and transportable. Finally, it’s affordable.
Your hydration routine begins with using products specifically designed for your face and beard and not products designed for your scalp. Your scalp has about 100k hair follicles and your face only about 30k. A beard wash will be more gentle and less likely to cause dryness on your face. In addition to that, by using Beardbrand beard softener over a hair conditioner you will be using a product that is silicone free and won’t build up over time. That silicone builds up on your beard can cause dullness to your beard as well as some silicone flaking.
This one is the latest from Braun in the electric shaver series and our favorite too. It has all the features of series 7 from Braun topped up with some additional attractions that makes it the best cordless beard trimmer. Apart from its performance based characteristics, the model also has the looks to die for. The shiny chrome plastic body gives it the looks of a cool and a funky gadget that makes it desirable to every youngster.
The time to recharge the battery takes too long. The product works on the nickel metal hydride battery which does not performs as well as the lithium ion battery, and thus you need to give long hours to your trimmer to charge full.
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.
I’ve used the Leven Rose oil and it didn’t do much for me. It also does have a scent, nothing overly smelly, but there’s definitely a smell to it. I’m not a fan of the oils in general, but I tried Honest Amish beard balm and have noticed a lot less split ends and overall better beard health in the last year or so I’ve been using it. It’s easier to apply and a single tin of it lasts forever. I think I paid like $10 on Amazon for a tin and after a year I’ve still got like half of it left and I use it daily.
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.
In case you hadn’t noticed lately, beards are in. But those big, full fields of face follicles don’t happen over night. It takes some intentional TLC to grow and maintain a strong and healthy beard. That TLC regimen should include a quality made beard balm.
Hi Raj. We would not recommend grapeseed oil as it could go rancid in your beard. Avocado oil can produce side effects so we wouldn’t recommend that either. Either a beard oil or beard balm should do what you want, providing it contains a combination of jojoba and argan oil. Those are the two oils that best moisturize and strengthen facial hair. Try our beard balm + beard oil set:
Hi , I may have missed it in the ” how to bit ” , but to me right up there with the hair thickness etc in order of importance is hair colour of both beard and head .
