When do I do my grooming? If you tend to trim your beard after a shower, then you’d want one intended for wet trimming. However, if you normally trim prior to taking a shower, then one designed for dry trimming will serve you much better.
I am growing a beard, the bottom is ok, but the sides are a bit thin. In addition I am allergic to parfum/fragrence and since everything I use is unscented, any scent these days is way too strong for me. What kind of product would you recommend?
Today Eric is talking about BEARD BALM. We often get asked the differences between our Utility Balm and Styling Balm. Both are great products, but are designed for different purposes. Listen up as Eric goes into detail about what exactly this awesome stuff is, and how it is used.
First of all, I’m going to be honest and tell you that if you can’t grow hair in certain places, there is no natural product that will make hair grow where there is no hair cuticle beneath the skin. That being said, you can certainly take steps to make sure that you’re creating the conditions for healthy hair growth by making sure that your exfoliating your skin to allow the hair to grow above the skin, and not using products with synthetic ingredients that can damage your skin and hair.
Let me just put you at ease since you’re here, it’s completely normal to loose beard hairs. We lose hair from head to toe every day all year long. Beard hair is much thicker and coarser, so it will show up much easier on your pillowcase. You don’t need to shave your beard off. What you can do to prevent it from accelerating is decrease the amount of time you spend combing or brushing your beard. Make sure it’s a high-quality one so it won’t snag and pull out your hairs.

One of the biggest complaints with this product is its smell. However, it’s important to note that most find they love the smell. Oils and butters are fats. They can go rancid if stored for too long or improperly. For those who say the product smells horrific, they probably got a rancid batch, in which case they simply need to contact the manufacturer. If no one reports the issue to the manufacturer, not only will you get a replacement/refund, but the bad batches might continue to be sold. Consumer’s calling in is how any company knows to recall a bad batch of a product. The good news, though, is that most say the product works and smells great. Just remember to take the steps I mentioned if you’re one of the unlucky few.

Like tight pants and suspenders, the resurgent popularity of beards in all their many forms is actually part of fashion cycle that has gone on for centuries. In some eras, they were considered the quintessence of the upstanding man, in others, the reserve of the ruffian or outlaw (to discourage them, Peter the Great even taxed facial hair). Interestingly, historians have noted that one of the chief influences over beard and facial hair fashion throughout history has been the military.

There are a ton of guys out there who have some amazing beards. You’ve seen them all over Instagram and YouTube. They are almost inescapable to see at this point. You may feel like they have the best beard in the world and that you can only aspire to grow one as awesome as theirs. I’ll let you in on a little secret though, they’re only human. They have bits and pieces of their beard that they don’t love too. It’s okay to look up to someone for the type of beard they have. You can look at the color, thickness, style, and so much more. Just don’t idolize them for their beard. It’s not healthy to actively compare yourself to the beards you see. Focus on your own beard, and what you’re able to grow. Who knows, maybe someone looks up to your beard too.
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.
A couple of general rules about wax. First, a lot of men categorize them as being soft, medium or firm. Soft wax is typically used in shorter mustaches to help control stray hairs while also providing a subtle sheen.
Ibn Hazm reported that there was scholarly consensus that it is an obligation to trim the moustache and let the beard grow. He quoted a number of hadith as evidence, including the hadith of Ibn Umar quoted above, and the hadith of Zayd ibn Arqam in which Mohammed said: “Whoever does not remove any of his moustache is not one of us”. Ibn Hazm said in al-Furoo'[clarification needed]: “This is the way of our colleagues [i.e., group of scholars]”. Inversely, in Turkish culture, moustaches are common.
Carrier oils are so named because they carry an essential oil to the skin. They dilute essential oils so that they can be applied to the skin, and thus impart the essential oil’s scent and therapeutic qualities.
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.
Repeat after us: a clean beard is a fuller beard. Much like your head hair, when you keep your beard clean it will appear much fuller than if you let it become too oily or completely dried out. Striking the right balance is important and our suggestion is to invest in some good beard wash and softener to help keep your beard clean without completing torching it. Establishing the right beard grooming routine is key to ensuring your beard stays full and healthy and if you can get into a routine for the entire month, you’ll definitely be able to see the results after a short amount of time.
One of the biggest myths about the growth of facial hair is about shaving. Your teen son may want to use the razor on his clean skin, in the hope that it will promote hair growth. But there is no scientific evidence to back the same, and in fact, your teen could get badly hurt in the process.

All of that said, once again, itching usually occurs when you’re just starting to grow out your beard. While it can drive you crazy, there are some easy ways to manage it that will help you get over the hump, so to speak.
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.
If you avoid that temptation to shave it off when the itching becomes unbearable, you will reach a point where the hairs will soften and the itching will subside. Once the facial hair becomes soft, the growth will be less irritating.
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.
