“If you can bear the beard, you can dare the extra care. . .” Don’t be caught unaware that the act of grooming the facial hair is the new workout. These days beards are demanding more energy and build up as the abs and muscles; dappered men in the clan are willing to go the mile.
Note that your facial hair is no lesser entity to the hair on your head, hence you are required to do more than just brushing and trimming at the barber’s this weekend. In giving your beards all the care and attention it deserves, lets kick off with the kit.
This takes us back to intimate you on how important it is to groom your beards as much as your hair, so you know that you are adding an extra pack en route your barber’s this weekend. You would rather not pack your hair clipper in this kit, we wont like you to get everything all balled up.
Top on the list of products a beards-man needs is the beard oil. It is a must-have for every man who’s serious about growing a great beard. Not just “a beard,” but a great one.
For one, beard oil is designed to mimic the natural oils you have on your skin. For the skin under your beard, which can easily become dry, itchy, and produce the dreaded beardruff, oil is everything, including when you want to maintain a healthy beard. Beard oil, in short, hydrates your skin.
The beard balm is composed of a blend botanicals that help shape your beard while repairing any patchiness that you may have. It helps relieve the itching that plagues many beard wearers because of the way it thoroughly conditions your skin.
You’ll love the shine this balm gives your beard. Not the kind of shine that will blind anyone nearby, mind you, but just noticeable enough to impress both beard lovers and non-beard lovers alike. It minimizes dryness, split ends, and breakage of your beard hair follicles.
It comes in a thick, balm spread that’s easy to apply and spread evenly throughout your beard. The balm provides a strong hold that many oil-based products can’t.
Beard & Mustache Wax
Find an extra-strength mustache wax that doesn’t look like it after application, that is, a wax that gives you all the hold you need, without looking you’ve slathered it on. To keep your mustache from drooping sadly during the day – it is worth having in your grooming arsenal.
While beard shampoo won’t solely cure the dreaded Beard Dandruff, it will go far in nurturing the skin underneath your facial hair while your moisturizer or oil gets to work on those follicles. Be sure to dig deep when massaging shampoo into your beard, extending beneath and down to your skin.
Beard Brush & Comb
Like shampoo, not any old beard brush will do when it comes to maintaining your beard. Don’t use your girlfriend’s hairbrush to style your beard. Or, your own hairbrush, either. Beard brushes made of boar hair are almost always superior to those made of synthetic materials.
Boar hair bristles provide the right kind of stiffness to glide through your beard hair, even the longest, most unruly strands. They’ll also evenly distribute your beard’s natural oils to leave you with a soft, clean, and manageable look.
By now you should know that that cheap plastic comb isn’t worth a damn. A saw cut comb, leaves the internal surface of the teeth flat, which move through your hair without binding or pulling. It moves smoothly even through wet hair. They’re rounded to prevent the comb from scratching and irritating your scalp, and stimulate oil production that makes your facial hair shiny and more manageable.
Having learnt all those tips, go ahead and groom that lush beards of yours this weekend and beyond!
