With the cold of winter here, have you considered growing a beard but don’t know where to start? Granted it's not for every man and for some it just seems too difficult to be bothered with. But fear not because it really isn't that complicated and in this article, we will provide a super simple and easy, five step guide on how to grow your beard and achieve the look that you desire.
Step 1: Making the Call
Once you have decided to go down the path of growing your beard and you have made the commitment, it's important to stay strong and loyal to yourself.
Don’t succumb to pressure from your wife, boss or colleagues who may try to lead you astray and persuade you to do otherwise.
Growing a beard is not only a statement of masculinity - it's also an empowering act of self-expression. Don't let anyone infringe on your right to bare a beard and remember to fully embrace the journey.
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 should be the first item on this list and it will help soothe irritation and the discomfort that comes during the ‘dreaded’ early stages of beard growth. Get in and talk to the team about the best beard wash, foam cleansers, serums and conditioners.
Step 3: Patience Is A Virtue
Believe it or not, the early stages of beard growth are almost always the most difficult.
Particularly due to the discomfort caused by beard itch. It is essential for any man growing a beard to invest in a quality beard oil and use it regularly. This will help to soothe any irritation, moisturise both the skin and the hair follicles, and ultimately eliminate the dreaded beard itch. By doing this, men are more likely to stick with their commitment and pass through this critical stage of growth without succumbing to the temptation of using a razor and ending their journey prematurely.
Step 4 : The Long Game
After several weeks of growing your beard might be looking thick and slick or alternatively 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, best to get in and see the team here at Morisset Square every few weeks for a trim and line up so that you always present clean, tidy and professional. Additionally, brushing your beard will help to control the hair and exfoliate the skin beneath, while using a quality beard wash will ensure that it is always clean. Lastly, keep up the beard oil or opt for a beard balm to ensure a hydrated and healthy beard.
Step 5: Baring Fruit
