8 Tips on How to Maintain the Longevity and Health of Your Beard

by Eric D. Lough

Patience is a virtue  A truly epic beard is the product of self-restraint and great beard maintenance.When you first start growing, resist the urge to trim or style, and leave it untouched for the first 3-6 weeks.(you have to go through hell before you get to heaven) this will allow the hairs to grow in evenly (some grow faster then others), and help you pick a style that suits its length and thickness.

Match your beard to your face  Like all great gentlemen of the world, a beard should be in-tune with its surrounding environment, this is crucial the first month of growth, choose a final style that compliments your face shape.Your beard will look better and so will you.

Learn how and when to trim  Pruning is essential to a well groomed beard-even if you plan on growing a full one.Using a trimmer or scissors, find the right technique to suit your master plan.Always start off with just trimming the fly-a-way hairs and stray dogs.Less is best.

Cleanliness is next to godliness  This is especially important in the early stage of growth, when environmental properties and skin cells can exacerbate the itchiness.Wash your beard about 2-3 times each week with an excellent beard wash (Beard & Body Washes) and pat it dry: an overzealous toweling can lead to fizzing and split ends.

Beard oil is the key to it all  Nothing tames a beard like regular use of beard oil.At The Famous Beard Oil Company, we have many varieties to choose from, in a range of manly scents (Woodsy Breeze, Spicy Citrus, Clean Slate, Savant Fusion, Sage Da Vinci, Urban Kerouac, Monk’s Dream, Highlander, Nautilus, Ol’ 55 Blend and Rugged Outlaw) all of our wonderful beard oils will condition hairs, to make them softer, shinier and aid in getting rid of the dreaded itch.All of our famous beard oils use pure essential oils as this has antibacterial properties.Visit our Beard Shop for more information on each of our top of the line beard oils.

You are what you eat  Your beard is made from protein and fat, but it’s also heavily reliant on vitamins B5, B3, and B9.That means lean meats, nuts, egg yokes, milk and plenty of leafy greens.If your seriously committed, you can also round off your diet with a good manly supplement.

Don’t forget your stache  Growing an epic beard also means growing a mustache.To keep it looking neat, trim the area around your philtrum (the area under your nose) and if your choose to, the area above your upper lip.
