Beard Growth Tips, Product Recommendations and Care Tips

These grooming tips are gold. Take notes, boys.

Beards are perhaps the most versatile men’s accessory in the game, and they’re a no-brainer for the modern man. Take a ‘try it once and see if you like it’ approach to this trend, and find a bearded look that best suits you. From a shadow of scruff to a full-on hipster variety, there is a style for everyone. And if you find that facial hair simply isn’t for you, all you have to do is shave it off.

Beards Are Having a Moment

Everyone from major athletes to celebrities and even your barber himself is having a beard moment, and for a good reason, too. Facial hair has the potential to transform your face in several ways. Thicken your facial strands for a classically masculine look, or play with hard edges to create the appearance of a sharp jawline where there isn’t one. Style your beard, let it grow freely, or find a happy medium that fits your style and needs. Beards are as versatile as they are trendy, and that’s half the beauty of this no-fail accessory.

Beard Washing and Care Routine

Whether you’re having trouble growing your beard or just want to maximize your hair, here are three must-have products you need for your grooming routine.

Keep your facial hair clean and groomed.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to keep your beard clean. Your beard is in the line of fire for everything you eat throughout the day and it’s important to routinely give it a good wash. We suggest using Dove Men+Care Hydration Fuel 2-in-1 Fortifying Shampoo+Conditioner (for the softest beard you’ve ever had). Plump up your strands and give the illusion of thick and dense facial hair.

As far as styling goes, we suggest a classic: AXE Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade is the ideal consistency for guys with longer beards. Run a dime-sized amount through your hair and use your fingers to comb and shape your style. Add product as needed but remember the golden rule of styling products: less is more. You can always add more as needed.

Beard Growth Routine

If you are ready to commit to the beard and are looking for a routine to help you continue growing it, we have got you covered.

One of the essential parts of a beard growth routine is how you care for your beard. Taking care to brush it daily and carefully wash it using a beard wash routine will allow the strands to continue growing healthily.

Also, remember that beard care is also skincare when it comes to beards. Make sure to exfoliate and cleanse your facial skin to keep the roots clear of product buildup and dead skin. These have the potential to block healthy hair growth, so keeping your skin clear is essential!
