Here are my top 2 reasons for using Shea Butter on your beard
#1. Anti-Aging & Reduces Wrinkles
Numerous studies indicate that using products containing Shea Butter can significantly reduce the signs of aging as well as reduce the size and amount of wrinkles. By regenerating your skin and preventing premature graying you will feel like a million bucks!
#2. Its a Multi-Vitamin for your Beard
Shea Butter contains essential fatty acids, vitamin A, and vitamin E  which are three vital components in maintaining the skin beneath a beard and your beard hair.  Using it daily will help you skin and beard hair retain its elasticity and increase suppleness.

BEARD TIP OF THE WEEK: Vitamin E
                                                                                                       
 
Modern science has now studied Vitamin E extensively to learn about the advantages for both hair as well as skin. 
Here are my Top 5 Reason to Use Products Containing Vitamin E
#1. Skin Under your Beard
Research studies show that the anti-oxidants in Vitamin E safeguard the cells in the skin and stop the development of the brand-new free radicals which can easily damage skin on your face. 
#2. Beard Hair Growth
Massaging beard balm or oil containing vitamin E into your beard can enhance blood flow to that area. The result is a healthy supply of blood to the face which promotes beard hair to grow.
#3. Split Ends
Hair professionals agree that Vitamin E is an effective treatment for beards with split ends. The split ends are caused by a variety of reasons such as: harmful chemicals, blow drying, poor hair maintenance, etc.
#4. Treatment for Dandruff
Research shows that Vitamin E deeply hydrates both hair and skin which will treat beard dandruff.
#5. Anti-Aging
Vitamin E helps avoid untimely graying and contains anti-aging properties which is going to help you look and feel awesome!

2 Things Your Beard DESPERATELY NEEDS

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

Real talk: nothing makes me happier than the girth of my beard and the twist of my stache. I mean, when you’ve reached that stage where patches are disappearing and combing your moustache actually does something. Sure my wife gets mad when I fill the sink with beard trimmings and sure the majority of soft served foods get caught in it but dude its worth it. Like every other OG my medicine cabinet is proudly filled with beard oils, beard balms, leave-in conditioners, lotions, and the like. All purchased in the valiant name of growth, fighting the itch, as well as, dandruff aka the great and terrible beard-druff.
 
In my valorous beard ventures, I've endeavored to solve the following beard problems: the growth quest, ending the eternal itch, and eliminating embarrassing dandruff. In this journey my face has smelt like everything under the sun; from alpine forests and lumberjacks to black liquorice to what I think was new car smell. I could have auditioned for the movie ‘Grease’ with some of the beard oils out there and could have played hockey with some of the beard balms pucks I've received. Despite all my bad experiences on this journey of solving my beard problems, there’s nothing like sleeping in on a Saturday, taking a quick hot shower then cracking open a brand new beard product to try. You know when you smell it for the first time and work it into your beard while its still 17% damp? I made up that number. Thats my jam!
 
Okay so my last example above was best case scenario. Again let me say I've endured my share of crap balms, conditioners, butters, oils, etc. that must have crammed an entire eucalyptus tree inside, so I decided to seek out a beard product that actually works; not too smelly, not too greasy, and something to help continue the growth of this miraculous mane of mine. Doing what any sensible male would do, I grabbed an ice cold brew and immersed myself in online research (and after only three hours on Buzzfeed I actually started.) 
 
Is it just me or is the amount of oils out there starting to get ridiculous? Here is a list of oils that I thought were funny:
 
Advocado Oil - I do love me some guacamole 
Hemp Seed Oil - I've been clean-ish since high school bro. Polite pass.
Rosehip Oil - I didn’t even know roses had hips
Jamaican Black Castor Oil - This actually sounds cool. One love. 
Emu Oil - I like my birds deep fried not on my face.  
 
The vast majority of beard products have similar functions: moisturizing, repairing beard hairs and relief. Those three functions are exactly what I need to solve my growth, itch, and dandruff problems. In light of all the options out there which one is most efficacious? I want to see tangible results period. So while plunging into great articles and blogs there was a mountain of evidence growing for two ingredients in particular: jojoba oil and argan oil. These oils have been around for thousands of years and with respect in mind for Straight Outta Compton these ingredients are the OGs of beard ingredients. I'd like to focus on these two ingredients in particular and I'll save beeswax, shea butter, etc for another article :)
 
I’m not a beard scientist and I’m not Ricki Hall (yet) but I did find an insightful University study within all my research. The number 1 problem for most men with beards is growth, we all want more. Interestingly, the University of Maryland Medical Center completed a study that demonstrated that the use of Jojoba Oil resulted in noticeable improvements in the growth of new hair follicles. Also, Jojoba Oil is quite similar to the natural oil produced by the human body and helps maintain and moisturize which stimulates growth. This is remarkable and absolutely solved my growth, itchiness, and dandruff problems. There's more, argan oil seems to be jojoba’s trusted side kick and actually works best on beards when paired together. What I found was that its rich in nutrients such as Vitamin E and antioxidants to protect both your beard hair and skin as well as deeply moisturizing. If you’re not familiar with these terms, think of it like this; its a protein shake for your beard instead of a beer. Not only that, they successfully and effectively perform the tasks of hydration, revitalization, and restoration to your beard. Not only that, these two ingredients together have unique and potent abilities to remedy, frizzy, dull, and damaged hairs. Finally our beards can recover from the summer BBQs. 
To find a product with these two ingredients, it needed to fit some required I have: I want the pure stuff no fillers, has to be organic, great smell, no additives, no parabens, no GMOs, no animal testing, with great reviews from a reputable site like Amazon not some BS site with 17 followers. Surprisingly, the best one I could find for my beard standards was from The B.I.G. Company Inc. These guys make an organic beard balm in Canada that fits the bill above and contain organic jojoba and argan oil amount several other amazing ingredients. Under priced in my opinion at 18$ for a perfect pocket size 2 oz container; their available at bigbeardbalm.com, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk. These guys have hundreds of great reviews; been around for a while; and manufactured in Canada. I love supporting small companies and they're doing a lot right! This organic beard balm is miraculous. My beard has never grown so quickly or more fully. The eternal itch is now a distant memory and the embarrassing dandruff has been vanquished. Is it just me or does customer service suck these days? Well The B.I.G. Company Inc., has without a doubt five star customer service that is knowledgeable and quick to respond. I got an awesome Beard Guide eBook with my purchase which really helped. B.I.G. stands for 'Being Incredible Gentlemen' and they live up to the name and my beard and I thank them for their miracle producing beard products.

Universities Research The Efficacy Of Jojoba Oil

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

Gentlemen,

We who are growing beards are continually aiming to improve beard development and health. We are all looking into for brand-new details on ways to grow beards better. I've noticed that Beardsmen commonly forget that beards have to be maintained properly, lest they dry out, grow germs, or plainly look unpleasant. Jojoba Oil is an incredible ingredient when it comes to healthy and balanced beard development.

Jojoba Oil was a strategically picked ingredient in The B.I.G. Company Inc.'s 100 percent Organic Beard Oil due to the fact that of its efficacy in dealing with both beard hair and also skin. Based on current research studies, Jojoba Oil helps cells reserve and also preserve moisture, which is essential for beard hair wellness and development. Along with that, there is a drastic reduction in skin irritations which is the major reason for dudes cutting off their beards. Some of the main advantages are: superb moisturizing, reduces wrinkles, and softer beard hair as well as skin. Its an effective tool for dudes with hard or delicate beard hair and skin.

The University of Maryland Medical Center completed a research study on guys who struggled with hair loss and what they found was by using Jojoba Oil patients had visible improvements in the growth of new hair follicles. Jojoba Oil is rather comparable to the natural oils produced by the body to aid, maintain, and also hydrate which stimulates growth.

Beard upkeep is vital to the overall health and wellness of your beard. A dirty beard will result in clogged pores, split ends, as well as an accumulation of foreign objects such as dandruff. Bacteria could swiftly start to live in a beard that is not maintain properly. Case Studies at Michigan University plainly revealed that five of  the most common skin bacteria plus a certain skin fungi could not continue to live in Jojoba Oil. Consequently, beards using  products such as The B.I.G. Company Inc.'s 100% Organic Beard Oil have had tangible results with their beards looking and feeling way healthier.

In a separate college research project, Professor Zille of Port Elizabeth University researched the strength of Jojoba Oil's anti-bacterial powers and the results discovered were that jojoba oil destroys bacteria staphylococcus as well as pseudomonas.

New York University Endorses Beeswax for Beards

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

Everyone is looking for the that key ingredient in a beard product. Something that will take their beard game to the next level. To take it from good to great... from average to phenomenal! This unique ingredient is 100% organic beeswax. This blog is going to be particularly helpful for those beardsmen that are attempting to grow their first beard or having difficulties growing a beard in general. 

100% organic beeswax has been clinically proven to enhance beard growth and health as well as health for the skin beneath your beard. B.I.G. Beard Balm's original beard balm for example contains 100% organic beeswax which is designed to target both skin and beard hair because of its high levels of retinoids (Vitamin A). Doris Day, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center, has stated, "There are more than 700 published studies on retinoids (Vitamin A) - they're tried-and-true ingredients. Anyone who wants younger-looking skin should use one."

Further to what is stated above by Doris Day, MD, Vitamin A has been clinically proven to have both preventative and therapeutic uses, such as keeping your cells healthy. When beard hair and skin cells are healthy they stay moist and resistant to cell damage. It's simple, the number one issue with growing a beard is the itch due to dry skin and the beard dandruff that follows. Excessive dry skin and itching can permanently damage the skin beneath a beard if left untreated for too long. Not only that, beard dandruff can be unnecessarily embarrassing because it is easily treated with the Vitamin A found in beeswax. The evidence is exceedingly great on the side of beeswax for a healthy beard and skin. By keeping beard hair and skin cells hydrated beardsmen are able to combat dry skin and beard dandruff as well as find relief from the itch.

Our specific beard tip for you is to try a beard balm that contains 100% organic beeswax as a main ingredient and incorporate it into your daily morning routine. After only a few days you will start seeing dramatic results in both your beard hair and skin.

 

DAILY MORNING ROUTINE INSIGHTS

1. BRUSH
Insight:
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. 

3. TOWEL DRY 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!)

4. APPLY BALM
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.

5. COMB
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 :) 

I hope this helps guys!
