24 Jan Beard Care And Maintenance Tips For Men Wanting A Different Look
I like the clean shaven look on myself, always have. However, recently I wanted to try something a little different. I didn’t want to grow a full beard, but I wanted to use a beard trimmer and keep some facial hair close cropped by buying the trimmer on best offer. Whether you want to do that or grow out a full beard, perhaps you can benefit from these beard care and maintenance tips.
Everyone’s facial hair grows out a little differently. One of my cousins I caught up with recently has a full beard, and his brother is trying to grow the same. Unfortunately, his brother isn’t able to grow as big of a beard. He can grow a sizable beard, but it seems to have plateaued. That being said, one piece of advice no matter who you are is that you have to be patient when growing and taking care of a beard.
What else do you need to know?
Let’s say that you want to grow out a full beard, the whole enchilada. There will be some trimming and grooming along the way of course, hence the patience, but guess what? The real patience kicks in when it comes to not doing much at all. Experts recommend that you do trim your beard at all for the first 6 weeks, 4 weeks minimum.
Are you going to be able to do that? That doesn’t mean you can’t groom your beard in other ways of course, but they just recommend that you don’t do any trimming. Now, when it comes to actually trimming your beard, you should take your face shape into consideration.
Everyone has a different face shape, and so you are going to want to grow what looks best on you. That is up to you and what you feel looks best. In other words, there is no specific blueprint in regards to particular face shapes. There are some guidelines if you seek them out, but again, this tip is about everyone being an individual and to allow their face shape to help guide them towards what they think looks best on them.
What type of beard styles do you like best?
It could be that you have a certain type of beard picked out, but you suddenly decide to change course as you keep growing it out, opting for a different style. Realize, too, that you have to remember patience is required. It is different thinking about having patience growing a beard than it is exercising that patience.
Make sure that you do wash your beard often. Also, when it comes to trimming your beard, no matter the style, you do need to know how to do the trimming. A good beard trimmer is going to make it easy on you for sure. Have fun growing out that beard and trying out a new style. It will be fun, and you will like the bearded look, whether you ultimately choose to keep it or not.
