The beard is back! And this time, it’s here to stay. There has been a massive resurgence in the popularity of beards and other facial hairstyles in the last few years. If you’re thinking about growing your manly mustache or beard but aren’t sure how to do so properly, we’ve got all the information you need right here!
Here are some tips for growing your beard properly.
Set Goals on How You Want your Beard to Be
One of the first things you’ll need to do if you want to grow your beard properly is set goals on how long and what shape or style of beard you’d like. Some people prefer a full-grown bushy look, while some would rather have longer mutton chops. The important thing about grooming any facial hair is that you know what type of look or shape you want before growing your beard out.
Once you know the type and length of the beard you want, you can start growing your beard out. If you’re a newbie to facial hair, you shouldn’t shave the entire face. Instead, shave the neckline and cheek line so that when your beard starts to take shape, it looks intentional rather than unkempt.
Use the Right Kit to Grow Your Beard
Once you’ve decided on how long and what shape or style of beard you want, the next thing to do is find some good products. When growing a full beard, it’s best to use natural ingredients like ginger extract oil to help stimulate beard growth. This is because typically when growing your facial hair, you’ll need all the support you can get.
It is important to know the ingredients of the products you are using and their effects on your body. For instance, when using ginger extract oil to stimulate your beard growth, you need to ensure that the product does not contain any harmful chemicals. Also, be sure to use products like this with caution if you are allergic or sensitive to ginger root in its natural form.
Trim Your Beard Regularly
One of the most important things to consider when growing your beard is how often you should be trimming it. If you want a well-groomed and full-looking mane, then we recommend that you give yourself proper shaping every day or two. While this may sound like an extra step in your daily routine, after some time (and patience), you’ll get the hang of it.
Unless you’re growing your beard long, don’t leave more than a half-inch or so of growth between trims. This will help keep things neat looking while keeping things easy to manage at the same time! When trimming your facial hair with scissors (versus using an electric trimmer), you must use a comb to pull the hair up and away from your face before snipping. This will help ensure things don’t get out of hand, which is especially important when trimming or shaping sideburns!
Use a Hairbrush to Exfoliate Your Skin
One of the best ways to make sure that your skin is getting exfoliated and cleaned thoroughly each day (or even twice a day) is by using a natural boar’s bristle brush. This type of hairbrush will help cleanse, stimulate, and exfoliate the oils from your face while inducing blood flow for better-looking skin.
This is a great way to ensure that the oils from your skin are being properly exfoliated and cleaned out of any stubborn or hard-to-reach areas on your face, especially if you have facial hair that tends to get caught up in pores! This can help prevent acne breakouts as well as blackheads from forming too often.
Don’t Forget to Condition Your Beard
Another thing that you need to keep in mind when growing a beard is conditioning it regularly so that it doesn’t look dry and frizzy or stiff from product build-up. If your facial hair feels coarse, brittle, or wiry, we recommend using natural oils like avocado oil (or even coconut oil) to condition and soften the hair.
This will make dealing with your beard much more enjoyable, even if you are growing it out for a couple of months! Conditioning helps keep everything looking great and keeps things feeling soft against the skin so that scratching isn’t an issue anymore. Using this approach is especially helpful when you’re growing a long beard, and it starts to get tangled.
In conclusion, it’s important to remember that if you want your beard to look great, then it needs some love and attention. That means using the right kit, trimming regularly (and precisely), exfoliating daily with a hairbrush, conditioning every few days or so (more often is better), and always remembering to use natural ingredients. All of these steps will help you grow a thicker, fuller beard that looks and feels great.
