Every Man wants a great beard. Every Man wants a thick beard.
But not every man knows how to grow the ultimate great BEARD. These tips that I am going to tell you will help you achieve the beard of your dreams.
The ultimate thing to grow a beard is you’ve got to:
1. Grow what you got
If you have a strong mustache or if you have strong sideburns or a strong goatee area, you should focus on and highlight those areas of the beard and maybe scale back the patchier areas.
Generally speaking, the patchier the section of your beard is, the shorter you can get away with it.
Keep in mind you don’t have to go completely shaven if you have a patchy beard.
The scruffy beard or the five o’clock shadow beard will give your face a little more dimension.
A little more texture and a little more character than going completely shaven.
There are hundreds of beard styles out there. You’ve got to find what works for you and what doesn’t work for you, what works for your face shape.
And you really have endless option, so have fun with it.
2. It Takes Time
All you need to do to grow a beard is not shave. But for how long are you not shaving?
You need to give your beard approximately 30 days of growth to see what you’re working with.
And the reason that is is that your beard hairs will grow at different rates.
You may have a really kind of patchy splotchy beard in that first couple of weeks and then, all of a sudden the slow-growing hairs will start to fill it in.
You’ll get a better feel for what kind of beard you have they are working with.
Guys who stop at 1 week or 2 weeks, typically find that the beard gets itchy and it’s not tolerable anymore.
But once it gets past that about that two weeks phase, it’s going to get a lot softer a lot more mellow, and a lot more manageable. You’re not going to have that same kind of itch.
You’ve got to determine how big a beard you want, and how long it’s going to take to get there.
There is no right or wrong way to grow a beard. There are a lot of different beard styles, a lot of different beard patterns, a lot of different face shapes.
You’ve got to grow what you feel most comfortable with and groom it in a way that you feel most comfortable with.
3. Enhance Your Beard
The one major mistake or the one kind of standard thought process when it comes to grooming your beard is your neckline.
A lot of guys will make the mistake of going too close to the chin. That really takes away a lot of the beard because remember you want the beard to grow on your face.
And this part is still part of your face. This part is your neck.
So, what you want to do is find that point where your face meets your neck, take it to your sideburns, and anything below the thumb you’ll want to trim off and anything above if you want to keep it.
Or another way to do it is about a finger length above your Adam’s apple.
So, that will give you a general gauge as to where you should be carving your neckline.
Now, when it comes to grooming your beard, you can go the all-natural route where it’s big and wild and all over the place or you can go like the very meticulous straight lines a little bit shorter, everything’s in its place.
But, you still have to groom it and what does that mean?
That means washing your beard, softening your beard, using tools to get the tangles, and all that like stuff that can accumulate in it. So, you want to make sure you take care of it.
There are great tools like a boar bristle brush, an awesome beard comb, and kind of most importantly some Beard brand beard oil.
Beard oil will soften up your beard, it will help with the itchiness, it’s going to make it smell delightful.
And in addition to taking care of your beard, beard oil is been formulated to take care of your skin, so it’s going to help with flakes or dandruff or dryness that you get.
Feel free to try different styles to grow different looks and to feel confident that you are purposeful with your direction and you’re going to be able to rock it with confidence.
