If you have decided its time to join the band of bearded brothers, then there are a few things you need to consider. So, read the full article to know about beard grooming tips.
Beards are great, especially for:
- Making you look manly.
- Making you look like a lumberjack.
- Keeping your face warm.
- Stroking in deep contemplation.
- Playing the role of Moses…
However, beards do have their bad moments too, especially when
- They itch like the devil.
- They give girls rashes.
- They grow in patches.
- They become tangled.
Some people may forget the beard for these reasons, but for others, a beard isn’t a fashion accessory, it’s a lifestyle choice, and for those men, we have these top tips on beard growth, beard maintenance, and beard care, for epic, glorious, manly beards.
In this Blog, You are Going to Know,
Tip 1: Growing your beard.
Deciding on the beard look you want, acknowledging the strength of your beard growth and understanding that potential tough beard-growing times lie ahead all mean you are ready to grow your beard.
Now you are ready to begin. Put down that razor. Put away those trimmers. Just let go. Give yourself at least four weeks of trim free beard growth before you start any proper maintenance.
It may be difficult, but attempting any premature trimming may result in an oddly shaped and dejected-looking beard, a genuinely saddening sight.
The second pitfall that requires steely determination is ‘the itch.’ If you regularly shave, your face isn’t used to the extra hair growth, and it will itch. However, there are ways of combating or at least easing this frustration before it turns you from your manly beard quest.
There are numerous lotions available to relieve dry, flaky, and itchy skin, which can be used to soothe the new beard growth sensation. Also, try to avoid using aftershave on your face for a while, as this will dry out the skin and cause further itching.
Tip 2: Trimming Your Beard
Congratulations, you have now reached the essential four weeks of beard growth and are ready to trim and maintain your beard. You have many options in honing and maintaining the appearance of your beard, which include:
1) Going to the barbers for a professional trim.
2) Investing in a pair of barber’s scissors.
3) Investing in a couple of electric beard trimmers.
The choice is yours, but investing in a greatly magnified shaving mirror and a wide-toothed comb is a must for those who like to trim at home.
Top tips for home beard trimmers include:
1) Never trim your beard when it is wet. Wet hair looks more extended, and you could end up taking off a lot more than you intended to.
2) Start near the ear on one side of the face and trim along the chin and then inwards. Then repeat the same action, on the other hand, to ensure that your beard is symmetrical.
3) Use your comb as a guide to calculate the length of hair you want to take off.
4) When trimming the mustache comb it straight downward and start from the middle, first trimming to one side of the mouth, then the other. It is generally best to leave the top part of the mustache and grow to the nose.
5) If you are using beard trimmers, note the different trimming settings before you get started, to ensure you maintain the beard length you want.
Tip 3: Beard Maintenance
Well done, you now have a splendid, well-shaped, and thoroughly manly beard; however, your girlfriend doesn’t appreciate the rash it is giving her, and you sometimes look like Roald Dahl’s Mr. Twit.
However, these problems can be easily rectified with proper beard maintenance.
When washing and conditioning your beard, it is always best to choose products designed to be used with beards. The skin and hair on your face are different from that on your head and are generally more sensitive and coarse.
For this reason, it is best to use products specifically designed to cater to your skin and hair needs, prevent skin irritation, and stop the development of rough, unkempt beards.
When washing your beard, follow these instructions:
1) Wet your beard, and then rub the shampoo into your beard. Make sure you are thorough in your shampooing, to loosen any oil build up and dirt.
2) Rinse your beard, making sure that all shampoo has been washed away, as this can cause skin irritation.
3) Squeeze out the excess and then apply your beard conditioner evenly. Leave the conditioner for about 3 minutes and then rinse out thoroughly to ensure that you do not suffer any irritation.
4) Use a wide-toothed comb to remove any remaining shampoo and conditioner, but try not to run the comb along the skin of your face.
5) Dry your beard by patting and leaving it to dry naturally.
Now your beard will be thick, magnificent, and your girlfriend rash free!
Congratulations. You have now mastered the beard. Now go chop down a tree, think deeply, and part the Red Sea.
