If you’re reading this, chances are you don’t want to just grow a beard. You’re on a mission to grow a masterpiece.
At Every Man Jack, we take that mission seriously (just look at our newest collection of Small Batch beard care products). So let’s unpack the A-to-Z of beard care, laying out how a well-groomed beard can be a game-changer for your appearance and help boost your confidence.
Understanding Your Beard Type
Before anything else, you'll want to identify your specific beard type.
Why? Because every beard has its secrets. It’s own set of needs. Whether you're sporting a light stubble, a goatee, a lumberjack bush, or some mystical beard in between, knowing your beard type can help you choose the right products and tailor your grooming routine to your beard's specific needs.
So take a good look in the mirror. Take some measurements, be honest about your beard’s strengths and weaknesses, and get ready to rock ‘n’ roll.
Daily Beard Care
Once you know your beard type, it's time to lay down the daily rituals. A consistent grooming routine is the cornerstone of a great-looking beard.
- It starts with proper cleansing. Use specialized beard shampoos and conditioners that are designed to keep your facial hair clean and healthy, like our Every Man Jack Beard + Face Wash.
- Comb or brush your beard regularly to remove tangles and distribute natural oils evenly. A well-combed beard will lay the foundation for easier trimming and shaping.
- Trimming your beard is essential for maintaining its ideal length and shape. Invest in a good-quality trimmer or a pair of grooming scissors like our Beard Shears to keep those stray hairs at bay.
Follow this simple regimen regularly to ensure your beard always looks its best.
Nourish with Beard Oil
Beyond cleansing and trimming, your beard needs nourishment to thrive. Beard oils and balms play a crucial role in this.
Products like our Every Man Jack Beard Oil are designed to help moisturize and condition not just the beard itself, but also the skin underneath, which is often neglected.
Understanding the ingredients in beard oils can help you choose the best product for your needs. Some oils offer additional benefits like anti-inflammatory properties or a pleasing scent. For the best beard smell around, check out the intoxicating scent of Hinoki Spice in our new Small Batch Beard Collection.
Style with Beard Balm
Styling your beard gives it personality – it takes your grooming from basic to sophisticated. Beard balms and waxes can help you shape your beard and give it the hold it needs to last all day.
Made with Candelilla Wax for styling and Shea Butter to moisturize, our Every Man Jack Beard Balm can help you make your beard behave with deep moisture and a medium hold.
For an expert level of polish, learn the storied art of blow-drying your beard. Or just stick your head out of the car window until your beard solidifies into that fresh-from-the-wind-turbine look.
Addressing Skin Issues
A healthy beard starts with healthy skin. Problems like beard itch and beardruff (beard dandruff) are common but easily addressed with the right care.
- Incorporating exfoliation (AKA a good hard scrub) into your grooming routine can remove dead skin cells and promote healthier skin and beard growth. Start by using an exfoliator (like our Face Scrub) 2 to 3 times a week.
- Moisturizing both the skin and beard can prevent flaking and irritation, while also helping to combat general wear on your skin. Make sure to use face lotions and moisturizers regularly to prevent your skin from feeling desert-dry – a great place to start is our Every Man Jack Sandalwood Beard + Face Lotion.
The Journey of Beard Growth
Growing a beard is a commitment. It comes with its own set of challenges, including awkward growth phases and plateaus.
Consistency in your grooming routine, a willingness to experiment, and a dose of patience will reward you with the beard style you've always dreamed of.
Troubleshooting Common Challenges
Every journey has its obstacles. A lot of men experience issues like patchy growth or ingrown hairs before they ever achieve a beard they’re happy with – the key, however, is to address these challenges before they ruin you with stress.
One of our great achievements here at Every Man Jack is the creation of an all-in-one beard kit that can tackle all of these issues (and more). Buy our Beard Care Starter Bundle and get started on that masterpiece of a mane.
In The End…
A well-maintained beard can elevate your entire look and boost your confidence. By following this comprehensive guide and using Every Man Jack's high-quality beard care products, you're well on your way to achieving your beard goals.
Because in the end, all you really have to do is wait for your hair to grow. Might as well give it every chance to grow into something special.
