SOME BARBERSHOP ADVICE ON GROWING THAT WINTER BEARD
June 23, 2023
It's been a slow start to the season and the ski fields are looking a little patchy, but there's no reason your beard should be! As we head towards July we figure it’s a good time to start talking about beards. Why beards? Because they keep your chops warm, make you look rugged and you can grow for a good cause too. Read on for some barbershop advice on growing this winter.
We first published this article with the first cold snap of winter last year. Now, we're dusting it off for a timely update. Why?, because growing a beard is no small feat. It requires dedication, patience and a little know how too, so jump in and read on for some top tips from your local barber here at Barber Industries Orange City Centre.
Get Ahead With An Early Start
Growing a big, thick, voluminous and bountiful beard isn’t as easy as just not shaving.
It takes time, dedication to maintenance and a little discipline. Men's facial hair grows at an average rate of roughly half an inch per month, so it takes a good chunk of the year for bushy results. Ideally, you want to get ahead and start growing in the Autumn so you end up with a thick and luxurious winter coat.
Keep It Clean And Well Groomed
Soon after ditching the razor, a man will be faced with the dread of the beard itch and this can be a testing time for even the most ambitious of gentleman.
Many blokes have given away their beardy aspirations because of unbearable beard itch.
Alas, the daily use of a quality beard oil and regular cleansing with a beard wash will do away with the itchy scourge and have a man growing think and fast while staying comfortable.
