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. 🙂
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:
So, now that we’ve firmly established that any man can grow a beard, we have to make something clear: It takes dedication to learn how to grow a beard the right way. Why? Because proper beard maintenance requires effort and patience, which not every guy has. But if you’re the kind of guy who can stick with something, learning how to grow a beard will be easy for you.
Maybe it seems like an extra step in the process, but if you really want to get the most out of your beard, condition it. It defends against the dreaded “itch”, for one, because it helps your beard maintain the proper amount of hydration.
Beard itch should only be a temporary phenomenon, occurring only in the first few weeks of growing out your beard. Any beard itch that lasts longer or is very severe could be the sign of a medical condition, such as fungus, allergies or some dermatological issue like rosacea. If you have severe itching, itching that lasts longer than a few weeks, or itching accompanied by unexplained redness, welts or flaking skin, see your doctor.
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.
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.
Yes, we recommend you use the oil at least once a day and up to three times a day as needed. We tend to use more beard oil in the winter months when its drier than the summer when their is more moisture in the air.
So, if you’re looking to keep your beard trimmed for a certain look, your trimmer is the tool you need. If you’re looking for a clean and smooth look, reach for your shaver. You won’t get that look with your trimmer.

There are also two types of hair that grow on your face, vellus (the light, blond, more youthful hair) and terminal (the darker, coarser hair). As you age your vellus hairs will convert into terminal hairs and those are the hairs that become a beard in a traditional sense.

Your body responds to the things you do in your life; what you eat, what you drink, and how your mind responds to different activities. Your body chemistry and the hormones it produces changes when you’re stressed. The hormones produced get reallocated into what is most necessary, and most times testosterone get pushed lower down that list. Don’t worry though, it’s natural levels in your body will return once your stress dissipates.
Beard care is constantly evolving. Products are appearing that have never been seen before, such as beard balm (also known as beard butter, beard cream, or beard wax). It’s still pretty new, so a lot of people may not understand what it is. A balm can be broken down into two different functions: conditioning and styling. First, we’ll talk about our conditioning Utility Balm.
When starting to let your beard grow, just stop shaving — completely. Do not shave at all for at least the first four weeks of growth. One of the most common errors is to attempt to start shaping or sculpting the beard too early in the process. Even if you are just planning to grow a “Van Dyke” or goatee, you should let everything grow for the first four weeks. WHY let your beard grow for four weeks before you start to shape it — even if you are just growing a goatee? If you don’t wait, you might cut off more than you really wanted. Also, you might not have thought about going for the striking effect of an oversized goatee. You can always trim it down to a smaller size later.

There are a few studies that suggest there might be a connection between marijuana and increased beard growth, but not enough to be conclusive. So, I wouldn’t count on marijuana to increase facial hairs growth.
The best time to apply beard oil is after you shower, or after splashing your face with warm water. This will open the pores, and damp hairs will better absorb the oil. But damp doesn’t mean wet. Towel dry your face and beard first. You’ve heard the saying: oil and water don’t mix.
I started to grow a beard, and was in need of a beard oil. I searched around to find one that was good quality and at a good price. Let me tell you, I was very happy with this product. THIS IS MY OPINION BTW!!! When I first tried the product, it was the best thing ever. It makes it smooth and soft. It also has no fragrance so it doesn’t mess with my cologne. But it’s not even just the product. They personally keep in touch and make sure your product is working. I thought that was amazing. Not many companies do that. You can’t put a price on that!!!

I have a grey, leaning toward white, beard that is dry and goes all over the place. It also has some wave. In the past, I have always kept my beard closely cropped. But in the last couple of months, I have let it grow out.
A couple things to keep in mind before styling your beard: 1) you need the proper tools, and 2) you don’t need as much time as you think. The whole process, in fact, shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, especially once you get the hang of it. The tools you choose are up to you, but we recommend using both a beard brush and comb, Styling Balm, Sea Salt Spray, and a hair dryer.
For one, it’s easy to use and leaves little mess. Just rub a small amount of the balm between your fingers and then spread it evenly throughout your beard. All you need to do is let it dry. Trust us, styling is made easier with this beard balm.
In a lot of ways, this version of Honest Amish beard balm is similar to the other, in that it’s US-made with natural ingredients. However, one of the key difference is that it’s designed to give you better control over your unruly beast of a beard.
The Braun BT5070 also comes with a small 1 cm trimmer that slides out of the top of the unit and is ideal for trimming hard-to-reach places such as around your nose and mouth. Its battery provides 50-minutes of trimming before needing to be re-charged (it also comes with a power cord if that’s your preferred method of trimming.
While you can use any good quality styling scissor for trimming your bear, it’s best to use a compact scissor like Percy Nobleman’s Beard and Mustache Scissors, because they’re small enough for you to do fine detail work that’s typically necessary if you have a mustache.
Depending on the country and period, facial hair was either prohibited in the army or an integral part of the uniform. For example, the French Foreign Legion’s combat engineers are all required to be bearded.
Never, ever, give up on your beard after a couple of weeks simply because it looks patchy, scraggly, or like another adjective you prefer. Impatience claims the lives of too many beards, as does the often-inevitable itchiness that comes in the initial stages of facial hair growth.
Last week I sat in a Brooklyn barbershop where five bearded men talked about beard maintenance in the same way as I’ve heard men analysing a football game on a Monday morning. They discussed strategy and effectiveness; trials and failures. They laughed and nodded and bumped fists.
However, if you’re looking for portability and convenience, then wireless models might be more suited to your preferences and lifestyle. However, if that’s your prerogative, be warned – you won’t have the same horsepower or the benefits of infinite juice that you get from models that use cords. At the end of the day, this choice is up to you!
