4 Steps of Beard Grooming for Super Men

Thinking about keeping a beard? My advice to you is to first set aside time every day for beard grooming and commit to that time to care for your beard. Additionally, it is essential that you use the right techniques, products, and tools throughout the grooming process. To achieve maximum results; give yourself time to allow your facial hair to grow to a considerable length before you start trimming or grooming your beard. You should use beard oil and wash during the growing stage. 

In this post, we expand on the grooming process and all that you’ll need for the best growing and grooming experience. Remember a neatly cared for beard will compliment your face, and prove that you are persistent in what you choose to do, exempting envy from fellow admiring men and women. Let’s read about it!

First: Clean-Shave

Clean-shaving is optional but can be used as the fresh first step to start with preparing for even and healthy beard growth. Applying Doing this puts your skin in great shape before you cover it up with beard growth.

Some of the products you need for maximum results when starting fresh with your beard growth is using good shaving soap or cream and a worthy after-shave lotion and a decent razor or shaving kit to lessen irritation and nourish the skin. An after-shave is used to soothe the skin, remedy redness and calm stinging. Post-Moisturizer hydrates and keeps the skin healthy.

Second: Stubble - you are now beginning to grow your beard

At this point of beard grooming, a natural beard wash formula makes sense to use. It cleans dirt, enhances and promotes healthy skin. When applying beard wash, spread the product evenly into your facial hair and massage a slight lather well into the skin underneath. Leave the beard wash in for a couple of minutes and wash out with warm water. Sporting a beard is a lifestyle and it goes hand in hand with the wellness of the skin, you must look after your beard and the skin underneath to get the best results. Check out our beard wash here

Beard oil is essential in this phase and throughout the growing process to eliminate beardruff and itching. Beardruff is in the most basic explanation is dead skin that is caused by dry skin and dry beard hair; this can be from weather conditions, working conditions or genetic makeup. Beard oil will supplement and balance the natural oil in your beard hairs and skin and keep your beard healthy. The oils we use are natural and have been chosen due to each of their specific properties and benefits. 

Most likely, you have heard about the beard oil. It’s a natural oil formula that keeps your beard hair soft, free-of-flakes and freshly fragranced. A facial hair conditioner that softens the facial hair but also locks in moisture and further enhances the softening of the beard hair. The oil helps to eliminate beardruff and maintains the skin underneath ensuring it’s not too dry or that it is producing excessive natural sebum oil. check out our beard oil here

Third: Official beard

After a few months of growth, you will begin to enter the ‘official beard’ phase. When your beard hairs hit the one - two-inch mark, you have officially graduated into entering the bearded man zone. As with the above-mentioned steps, the skin and beard hair is your first priority but you will need a natural beard softening formula. Conditioners work best on the beard whether it is wet or dry.

The role of a conditioner is to soften the facial hair and improve its health. Essentially, the trick is to go with what softens your hair the most. This is where we introduce beard balm. Beard balm acts as a natural conditioner and a shaping agent for your beard. This product is strong enough to hold those pesky flyaways at bay, and soften your beard at the same time.

Fourth: Control and maintenance

Like the hair on your head, once your beard grows long enough it will require maintenance. Use beard balm to shape the beard and increase flexibility. To achieve maximum results use the right amount of the balm and apply it while the beard is still damp e.g. after a shower. In the beard grooming process, daily maintenance keeps your hair healthy and lucrative all the time. Invest your time and effort in the right procedures and products and you will be happy with the results you’ll get. Some of the must-haves include beard balm, wash, and oil. We recommended growing your beard out with minimal trimming until you reach the desired length you can either attempt to trim your own beard or have a professional do it for you. 

A brush is your beards best friend through all stages and regular brushing with a Boar bristle brush will stimulate the beard hair and the skin underneath. There are many benefits with brushing your beard and it will help to maintain and shape your beard as it grows. Check out our comb and brushes here

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Do I need to clean-shave before growing a beard?

4. How do I know when my beard requires maintenance?
Once your beard grows to a desired length, it will require regular maintenance to keep it looking its best. Signs that your beard needs maintenance include unruly hair, split ends, and loss of shape.
