THE BEST WAY TO WASH YOUR BEARD Life is good. Your beard is growing in great, and your boss is being unusually cool. As you stroll through the office in route to recharge your coffee; it hits you…a combination of stale beer, that steak you ate on Saturday, and a splash of old perfume. What.The.Hell. It’s Tuesday, but your beard smells like the weekend. As a well-groomed gentleman, this is clearly not okay. We receive a lot of questions about beard care and maintenance. One of the most popular questions relates to cleaning the beard. What is the best beard shampoo? Is there a great natural beard wash? How do I properly wash my beard?
Washing your beard is easy, but if not done properly, it will dry your beard out and make it more abrasive. Wash your face every day, but not your beard. As men, we have naturally oily skin. To keep things clear and healthy, you should wash your face twice a day. Once in the morning and once before bed. Your beard is a different story. …


Ah, youth. Brilliant youth. The days where you feel indestructible and your body is generally quite happy to push on through anything. Hangovers last for hours, not days. Thoughts of shame and embarrassment are for other people. One thing that is not for you at this age, though, is a big, thick beard. You might feel annoyed at the rare boys in your age group, 15-18, who do have a good beard. However, don’t use those boys as the standard: beards at such a young age are not common. You might be so determined for a beard, though, that you will try anything. Maybe the girl you are into is really a big fan of beards. Maybe you feel like it will get you into clubs and pubs faster. Maybe you just hate your sensitive teeth feeling horrible in winter, and you want a beard to impress. Whatever the reason is, you want to make sure that you don’t go too far in your quest for a beard.  The problem is that outside of potentially dangerous and crazy options, there are no ways to make your beard grow f…

Cheap combs are often cut badly, which means the teeth …

9 Tips for Autumn Beard Care

While it’s true that a beard can frame a man’s face nicely and make him look even more attractive, it’s important to know that beard also deserves some care and love in order tolook and feel great this autumn. Ditching the razor and the regular shaving routine will definitely result in beard growth, but it takes a lot more than that to keep it fresh and appealing.

15 Beard Facts You Probably Never Knew

What is it about beards, exactly? Just the mere fact of covering your face with an impressive mass of hair can take you to a different place – socially, in relationships, to even a higher plateau of confidence.

With so many studies showing so many things about beards and their effect on both the wearer and the people around him, you can’t dismiss the power (and cool) of a rocking, well-manicured beard. If you are a bearded man, we salute you. If you’re thinking about growing a beard, we also salute you.

But, remember, it’s not just a beard, it’s also something with a long history that has generated tons of accumulated knowledge. Let’s take a closer look. You’ve just reached the tip of the iceberg A person with a long, long beard commands attention and gets his share of second glances. Think of the gentlemen in the venerable American rock band ZZ Top; the first thing that pops into your mind is their beards (although their drummer, the aptly-named Frank Beard, doesn’t have a beard). D…


Growing up I remember that my father always had a beard. Shaving was never a thing in our household. I would remember my mother would always complain about how his trimmings would cascade across the sink. The sound his trimmer would make when he did trim it up. It was always lined under his neck, and his moustache would be neat and proper. At the age of 15, I started to grow my beard out as well, like father like son, right?! When I first started to grow it in, it was sparse at best. Worst of all, I was blond, so it was barely even noticeable unless the sun was high that day. At which point, I looked like something of your popular teen vampire movie. Yet, I did not care. I was determined to rock that wispy beard no matter what. I would look in the mirror and wonder if my beard would ever be as full and as neat as my fathers. Fast forward about 15 years, I had just retired from military service. I no longer was required to shave my face or cut my hair. I mean after all; it was time to…
