HOW TO GROW YOUR BEARD IN FIVE EASY STEPS
April 21, 2021
Growing a beard is not for every man and for some it can seem a little daunting or just too difficult to be bothered with. Well, today we break it down and make it all too easy to achieve in our five step guide to growing a beard.
Step 1: Making the Call
Once you have decided to go down the path of growing your beard and have made that commitment, you must stay strong and loyal to yourself. Don’t let your wife, boss or colleagues lead you astray and persuade you to do otherwise. Your beard growing journey is a righteous act and is empowering for a man. Don’t let anyone intervene in your right to masculinity and your right to bare a beard.
Step 2: Being Properly Prepared
Now it is the time to say goodbye to the daily shave and to let those whiskers grow wild. In saying that, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. First of all, one must be ready for the challenges that growing a beard will present and have the right tools at the ready for dealing with these. A quality beard oil is a necessity for any man growing a beard and will help you get through the ‘dreaded’ next step.
Step 3: Patience Is A Virtue
Believe it or not, the early stages of beard growth can be somewhat harder than the later. The reason for this belongs to the dreaded beard itch. This is where we emphasise the importance of the before mentioned beard oil. The itch that sometimes comes with this stage of growth has led to many a man reaching for the razor and ending the journey barely after it has begun. The beard oil will moisturise both your beard and the skin underneath, this helps to eliminate beard itch and will help you pass through this critical growth stage.
Step 4 : The Long Game
After several weeks your beard might be looking thick and slick or quite patchy and uneven. Everyone’s growth pattern is different so don’t worry too much about variation in lengths and growth rates. At this point in time it is a good idea to start trimming your neckline, get in to see the team every few weeks for a line up so that you always present clean, tidy and professional. Start brushing your beard to control the hair and exfoliate the skin beneath. Use a beard wash to clean and a beard oil or beard balm to moisturise.
Step 5: Baring Fruit
