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.
Cleaning up after you finished is already easier thanks to the integrated vacuum system – you’ll love how your sink looks after your shave – and cleaning the trimmer itself involves simply rinsing the blades under water and emptying the chamber.
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.
In order to balance the oil glands around your hair follicles, try oysters, crabs or clams once in awhile. I would suggest it when you have a date and you want to move to the next base. I heard they send the right messages (wink wink).
In Ancient India, the beard was allowed to grow long, a symbol of dignity and of wisdom, especially by ascetics (sadhu). The nations in the east generally treated their beards with great care and veneration, and the punishment for licentiousness and adultery was to have the beard of the offending parties publicly cut off.
Long before I was aware of all of coconut oil’s benefits, I was a frequent user. Years ago I began using the oil a hair treatment to seal much needed moisture into my dry hair. Since those days, I’ve found tons of other uses for coconut oil (and other parts of the fruit as well).Thanks or it is really too useful.
Rocky Mountain Beard Balm is made for you guys who battle daily with a beard that doesn’t want to do what you want it to do. It lays its major claim on the fact that it will give you ultimate styling control without feeling as if your beard is weighted down with wax.
The balm is easy to work with and mold in your hands prior to application (it has exceptional softness) and therefore is easier to spread in your beard hair. You’ll also love the scent: it’s mild and woodsy, manly yet sophisticated.
The ancient Greeks regarded the beard as a badge or sign of virility; in the Homeric epics, it had almost sanctified significance, and a common form of entreaty was to touch the beard of the person addressed. It was shaven only as a sign of mourning; it was then instead often left untrimmed. A smooth face was regarded as a sign of effeminacy. The Spartans punished cowards by shaving off a portion of their beards. From the earliest times, however, the shaving of the upper lip was not uncommon. Greek beards were also frequently curled with tongs.
Hi, Robert! That’s a great question. The answer is that you’ll continually benefit from using beard oil or beard balm. It helps to think about your hair, including your beard hair, has having a life cycle. Your hair is constantly falling out and being replaced with new hair. When applied properly beard oil will nourish your hair beneath the skin, which will improve it’s health as new hair grows in. It will also help keep the current hair healthy and hydrated which means less breakage.
Choosing the right beard growing oil can seem overwhelming. We are big believers in reading labels at The Mod Cabin. Anyone can say they have the best beard oil but the proof is on the label. The first ingredient listed on the label is what is used most. The last ingredient listed is used least. Make sure your beard oil has either jojoba or argan listed as the first ingredient. As a general rule you do not want more than a few ingredients in your beard oil. This is because the most beneficial oils are generally the least processed so they do not need additives. We recommend avoiding beard oils that add Vitamin E. The right beard oil will already have ingridients like argan that contain naturally occuring Vitamin E.
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”?
Comb your beard: You should comb your beard all over, even in places you usually neglect, and ensure it’s 100% tangle-free. Also, comb the hair into a single direction to ensure you get a nice, even trim.
Jojoba Oil is structurally very similar to – and mimics – your natural body oils (sebum). Because of the way it closely matches your own natural oils, it is quickly absorbed by your face and beard. It’s the most common carrier oil found in beard oils.
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.
During the Chinese Qing dynasty (1644–1911), the ruling Manchu minority were either clean-shaven or at most wore mustaches, in contrast to the Han majority who still wore beards in keeping with the Confucian ideal.
A tool that no self-respecting beardy bloke should be without. A kind of Swiss army face comb, it comes equipped with everything you need for beard styling, whatever style you fancy. Its two combs – each with different sized teeth – will tackle any hair length. Meanwhile, the brush helps get rid of any stray cut-offs or unruly hairs – tidying up the kind of scruffiness that might otherwise be missed. The boomerang shape is more than just a gimmick too. It’s designed to line up against your beard line so you can shave or trim perfectly rounded lines.
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.
It not only smells great, but Honest Amish Classic Beard Oil also takes care of everything else a quality beard oil should: it takes care of itching and dandruff, promotes beard growth, moisturizes, and makes your beard easy to style.
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!
And if you’re a teenager or a guy in his twenties, remember that you won’t know your beard’s true density until you’re anywhere from late twenties to early forties. It’s only in this late stage—after adolescence ends—where men grow the thickest beards.
Beard Balm on the other hand, still offers the benefits of Beard Oil, but with hold. Big Red Beard Balm contains the nourishing oils of our Beard Oil, alongside Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Beeswax. This allows you to retain the perks of the Beard Oil, but to also tame, shape, and hold the beard in place. Aside from the benefits of the oils in the Balm, Shea and Cocoa butter offer extraordinary moisturizing properties that penetrate the hair shaft, offering increased hair strength, damage repair, and is even claimed to promote hair growth.
Try “beard lube” to combat itchiness or dryness. While they’re not super-commonly used among men with beards, there are a variety of beard oils on the market, which can be combed into clean beards to keep them looking shiny, moisturized, and clean. It can be a desirable look, and it may give relief to men with sensitive skin who suffer from itchiness.
Why grow a beard? Logically, the question ought to be: Why NOT grow a beard? But shaving is the norm and letting the beard grow is the exception. So, it may require a bit of courage to take the decision to grow a beard. Once that decision is taken, it is easily reversed upon second thought. And another would-be beard disappears. When you see a man with a full-grown beard, you know he made the decision to be bearded and he had the determination to stick with it.
Exercise is perhaps the best thing you can do for promoting a thicker beard. Facial hair happens because of the way your body reacts to testosterone. By naturally boosting your testosterone levels through exercise, you give your body more testosterone to react to. A thicker beard is often the result. Anecdotally, girls often say their eyebrows come in fuller after they start exercising regularly, so it makes sense that this phenomenon would transfer to beards for guys.
Start with a fresh shave. Just as you need a clean canvas to start painting, when you decide you’re ready to start growing a beard, you need a clean-shaven face. Start from scratch, trimming any facial hair you do have off, then shaving close to the skin. This will ensure that everything will grow as evenly as possible as you’re starting your new beard.
Many beard trimmers can’t give you ideal stubble, and your best bet is to buy a stubble trimmer meant for the job. The biggest difference between the two is in the settings. A stubble trimmer can trim facial hair extremely short – short enough to give you the 5 o’clock shadow look if you so desire.
Lucky Scruff has some night products also, esp the hand made soap for beards. He offers 3 different kinds right now. The beard oils, while the 3 on his main page I didn’t care for, the beard of the month club has some better ones. (Scent wise, the conditioning aspects of the main oils are awesome, but I like the oils that have a scent and I found no scent in the 3 samples)
While growing a beard really is easy, many would-be beard growers give up their efforts in frustration by falling into the trap of common mistakes and abandoning their newly-started beards too quickly. The all about beards guide to growing a beard presents a tried and true method that will help you steer clear of beard-growing pitfalls and give you the confidence and determination to lead you to beard-growing success.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit has found that employers may not require clean shaving without good reason, since this has a discriminatory effect against a large number of black men who are prone to razor bumps.
Great reviews however every beard trimmer I’ve come across has performed badly with the short curly beard. I tend to trim my beard back to 3-4mm and let it grow for a few days. My fur is quite coarse and curls back so I find a lot of blades just skim over the surface. Any recommendations?!
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.
I’ve used coconut oil as a softener for my beard several times. I’m using a virgin organic brand. Smells great when I put it in. However, after it has been left in for about four or five hours, it starts to smell (and taste) like soap. I find this fairly unpleasant. Anybody else have this sort of issue?
The Minox Beard Spot (TMBS) is a closed Facebook group which was created on June 3rd, 2015. Now hosting thousands of members, the intention of the group is to discuss the usage of minoxidil for the purpose of growing more facial hair.
After you’ve trimmed your beard and mustache, then you should maintain the shape of your beard. Use the beard trimmer with the adjustable trimming guide removed (be careful) to keep the neck line of your beard well-defined. Alternatively, you could carefully shave the lower portion of your neck to maintain the neck line of your beard.
A softer beard starts with a good foundation. Wash your beard with beard shampoo only, so that your beard’s natural pH is maintained and you aren’t exposed to any harsh abrasives that might roughen up your hair.
Well, as we said – with the growing popularity of beards, the popularity of oil has risen up, too. They are everywhere now, and you can choose from such a variety of products today that it might be a bit overwhelming. Let us get one thing clear: if you choose the best oil, you are not just getting a cosmetic ointment, you are getting a product that is healthy and beneficial for your skin and beard.
Once you optimize your body and prime it for beard growth, focus on keeping your beard healthy from the outside. Only use beard shampoos and conditioners, which will contain the right pH for your beard and face. Beard moisturizer and beard oil are two of the best products you can use to promote healthier hair grow. Try something like this Beard Oil Conditioner from Urban Prince; not only does it condition your beard, but it moisturizes it and treats it with protective oils. Using products like this before your beard becomes damaged is crucial to growing an overall healthier beard.
Second, you need to use the right products. When you use the right beard cleanser and exfoliator, it’s a lot easier for your hair to break the surface of your skin and continue growing strong. Believe us, that buffalo sauce from lunch that you caught in your beard-to-be isn’t going to help it grow.
Travel-friendly trimmers should also have a longer battery life while being easily chargeable. In most cases, a cordless trimmer is easier to take with you when you travel, but it needs to have an easy-to-access charging source.
At Seven Potions we are all men grooming enthusiasts and we spend our time trying to find the best ingredients, in order to create the best products and answer all your needs. We are also all going through a beard phase, to our girlfriends’ despair. So we definitely understand what you’re going through. That’s why we would like to propose to you some of the solutions we developed, tried ourselves and did the trick for us.
It makes your beard rough and tangled. As such, it becomes more difficult to wash off the product when you try to rinse. Leaving too much product in your beard can make it even rougher. Not to mention that the cleaning agents in the shampoo or soap do not work as effectively as usual, when in contact with hard water, due to the excess of minerals.
Moisturizing ingredients are generally oils, because they’re natural and typically very safe. While oils may sound like they might make your hair too greasy, not all oils are the same. There are a lot of “lightweight” oils that don’t clog pores or make your skin or hair greasy, and these are usually the ones that come in beard balm. Oils like avocado and coconut are common because they exhibit these properties and have extra benefits as well, such as being antioxidant, which protects your cells from free radicals, which can not only make you look old over time but make your skin and hair look less healthy in the short term.
The answer #1 is minoxidil. It works by activating the potassium channels on your hair follicles and allows for increased circulation of nutrients, testosterone, and DHT to the beard follicles, dramatically improving beard growth within 6-12 months.
Mustaches look great on their own or as a complement to that dazzling beard you’ve grown. Like a beard, however, a mustache can look a little less than its best – i.e., droopy, unkempt – without the proper care.
We also used to think that dry and non-hydrated is the same thing. But it is not. While dryness is the effect of external causes, dehydration is the effect of internal causes. Dehydration is what happens to your body when you lose more liquids than you gain.
At Seven Potions, we have worked tirelessly to find the perfect combination and ratio of carrier and essential oils in order to create the perfectly balanced product to make your beard smooth and soft and to help you get rid of the split ends. It’s absorption properties will make your beard look it’s best without giving you a greasy sensation.
Nutrition plays an important role in how fast your beard grows and how great it looks. Experts say that a healthy skin will translate to a health hair so a diet rich in Omega-3 and vitamins (particularly vitamin A) is a great step in the right direction. Also avoid drinking too much alcohol as this causes dehydration.

It might be a microscopic difference, but electric trimmers and razors give you a completely different shave. An electric trimmer will leave your ends with a sharper finish, which can lead to a lot of irritation and itchiness. This can also lead to split ends. Since the separation of hair is so sharp, it splits your hair and leads to more split ends. Whereas when you trim your edges with a razor instead, it still cleans up that line but also ruffles the ends which promote more natural growth of your hair follicles.
