We know you have a lot of questions and you ask us all the time. We're all dedicated to making sure you have the information and guidance you need to keep on growing with confidence. This means ensuring all of the great education our community has is available within your reach! Today, we will try to cover 5 of the most asked questions, to help you throughout your beard journey! Lets get right into it!
1. HOW DO I GROW MY BEARD FASTER?
This is the most common question we get across all of our community channels. We get it - every guy who wants a beard has seen how full and thick they can get in movies, on celebrities, and in highly public guys who have all the genetics needed to check off every box in the "Perfect" Beard checklist (I use quotation marks because perfect is 100% subjective). At the end of the day, the truth is that no beard is perfect. Some grow in patchy, others grow in dense, some are curly, and some are wavy. Everyone is different, and you aren't in control of your genes.
There are a few things you can do to help speed up the process, though - you just have to be extremely patient. All great things take time and consistency, and gearing your body for better beard growth is one of those things. Exercising and eating a balanced diet are essential for optimal beard growth, as well as regular grooming.
2. DOES BEARD OIL GIVE PEOPLE ACNE?
Everyone is different when it comes to facial hair, and the same can be said for the skin. The skin under your beard is softer and more sensitive than your head and other parts of your body, so some people may react unexpectedly to different kinds of skin and hair products.
Our beard oils were designed to be lightweight, non-greasy, and to absorb quickly - eliminating breakouts from clogged pores. However, your skin may be sensitive to an ingredient in any one of our products. My skin reacts negatively in products that contain olive oil, but I don't know anyone personally who shares this trait. Conversely, a couple people in the office don't respond optimally to almond oil. I cannot stress it enough when I say that everyone is different, and that's not a bad thing.
If you have sensitive skin and you're afraid of a reaction from our products, we recommend starting with a modest amount of oil in your beard and gradually working your way up to bigger amounts, paying careful attention to your skin as you do. If you have a reaction to one of our products, we stand by our satisfaction guarantee and will happily exchange it for a product you'll love.
3. WHAT PRODUCT IS BEST FOR ME?
This is such a big question and I can already tell you that I am not going to be able to tell you as a person which product is best. We are all different and we all have different beards. If you have a short beard and you just started, you don't need beard wax. If your beard goes beyond your neck, you might want to use beard wax instead of beard balm to keep your mane maintained! In general, beard oil is always good to use. It nourishes your skin and makes your beard feel soft! All in all I can tell you that you need to experiment. Find brands that you like and use natural products. After that experiment what works best for you!
4. WHY IS MY GREY COMING IN UNEVENLY?
Grey hair happens when the pigment cells of a hair follicle stop producing melanin. As we age and go grey, there's only so much we can control in terms of our body. No amount of exercise, rest, and healthy diet is going to change the rate or pattern in which you go grey. I have a good amount of grey in the front of my beard, but it grew in from the left side to the right over time. My father's grey came in perfectly evenly over the course of a decade. No one person is the same.
5. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT MY BEARD'S COWLICK?
We all know that part of our beard that his this weird twist in it.. This part of the beard can be one of the most frustrating, but it's not the end of the world (and definitely not the biggest obstacle to a rad beard!). Genetics can cause the corners of our beard to grow into these spirals - and sometimes no matter how you trim or shave them, they keep growing back in the same direction. There are two different things you can do here when working around the cowlick.
The first thing? Go to a barber. Your trusted local barber with lots of beard grooming experience is going to give you the extra tricks you need to keep this under control. He or she will even be able to cut and blend it in such a way that it won't need upkeep for a while - and you can ask them tips on how to manage it between shop visits, too.
The other option is to try growing it out long enough to tame the beard with oil heat, and a brushIt's harder to train the hair to grow a certain way at shorter lengths, so this solution requires a lot of patience.
These were some of the questions we get a lot! Do you have a question which is still unanswered? Feel free to ask us in the comments below!
