6 Simple Steps for Beard Success

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

Hello gentlemen! 

Beardsmen on Twitter, Instagram, etc. have been asking us, 'how can I make my beard better?' I think we all look at beard models like Ricki Hall, Josh Mario John, Levi Stock, and think to ourselves 'how can our beards look like that?' 'How can I have a beard model quality of beard?' First off, let me say, the struggle is real. I've asked myself that question on a regular basis. Is a portion of it genetics? Obviously it is, but all things being equal, there are some really practical steps I've picked up along the way that I really think will bless you and your beard.

Let me preface these 6 Simple Steps for Beard Success with one piece of wisdom, good things happen quickly, great things take time. To experience the same beard girth as some of these beard models, it will take at least 6-8 months and for a lot of people, 12 months. So be patient with yourself and incorporate these 6 Simple Steps into your daily routine and you to can experience some next level beard success!

By brushing your beard before you shower, you will loosen dead skin cells and other foreign objects that you want to wash out during your shower resulting in a deep down clean. We recommend using a boar bristle brush without synthetic bristles. The B.I.G. Company will have one available August 2015.


2. SHOWER (please).
Insight: We suggest only washing your beard once a week with a beard shampoo. Twice a week if you work outdoors or somewhere dusty. A good rinse with warm water generally does the trick. Also, avoid using harmful scalp shampoos and conditioners on your beard. 

Insight: A blow dryer can dry out your beard hair and skin as well as cause split ends so this is a B.I.G. No! (Do you see what we did there? With the B.I.G. thing instead of big because our company's name... {insert crickets sounds} whatever man!)

Insight: Take your beard balm, we suggestion using B.I.G. Beard Balm (obviously lol), and scrap a thumb nail size amount out of the tin. Then place the thumb nail size of balm in the middle of your palm. You can turn it into a liquid by the warmth of rubbing your hands together. Once the balm is a liquid apply thoroughly to your beard hair and skin. Root to tip for best results.

Insight: This is a two part insight. First, this helps ensure that the beard balm is evenly distributed throughout your beard. Secondly, helps straighten hairs so that it looks well groomed. P.S Make sure to give that mustache a nice twist! If you find that its not working, you make need to apply more to your mustache alone. Alternatively, try a mustache wax which has a greater hold than beard balm. 

6.Wash out at the end of the night 
Insight: At the end of the night its a great feeling for you and for your beard to wash your face with warm water. This gets out any junk that may have accumulated during the day. Washing your beard at night also washes out any excess beard balm left in your beard. In the morning you will have a fresh canvas to work with. Also, your wife will thank you :) 

The B.I.G. Company endeavours to help grow great beards and great men. If this has helped you, share with others and let us know!
