Posted by Dija Paul on

HOW TO SHAVE YOUR HEAD LIKE JASON STATHAM

Jason Statham shown on bigbeardbalm.com blog. Representing why a shaved head looks good, and shaving tools to achieve the look. Pre Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, Razors, and Alum block to help with look.

If you want to do the classic Vin Diesel Bald is Beautiful look, or the suave Jason Statham suit and tie getting ready to drive 150 miles/h look… We’ve got you covered. The best way I can describe shaving your head is, FREEDOM. Let me enlighten you. Freedom from:

    • Being too hot from the summer heat
    • Getting up to do your hair everyday
    • Shaving the crown of hair you have left so people don’t know you’re balding
    • Saving time in the morning. Bro, your time is valuable. You need all the help you can get!

BONUS: You will stand out it a crowd. I don’t know what it is with a bald guy in a crowd, but people notice him… Could be the light bouncing off his head into a heavenly halo.

 

OVERVIEW

  1. Get some solid shaving tools
  2. Trim your hair (depending on how long it is)
  3. Shave your head with a simple technique
  4. Finish off with a soothing balm 

NOTE: Best time to shave your head is after a hot shower, or in the shower. Your pores are open, your hair is softer and it’s prime time for the smoothest shave ever.

 

SOLID SHAVING TOOLS & GROOMING KIT NECESSITIES

CLIPPERS To trim your hair down

Shaving Clippers posted on bigbeardbalm.com. Shaver by Wahl. Used for trimming beard, trimming hair, and before shaving head.

 

SHARP RAZOR that has 3 – 4 blades. 2 blades don’t seem to “cut” it. Pun intended.

Gillette Mach 3 Razor on bigbeardbalm.com blog. Use for shaving head. Best used with pre-shave oil and shaving cream. Followed by soothing aftershave balm.

 

PRE-SHAVE OIL basically solves all shaving problems. Applying a thin layer of pre-shave oil on your head before your shaving cream will help you shave faster, your razor will glide across your head, it prevents razor burn, bumps, cuts and gets you a ridiculously close shave. Like ridiculously close.

Pre-Shave Oil on bigbeardbalm.com. Used for shaving under shaving cream with safety razor, straight edge razor, or razor blade.

 

QUALITY SHAVE CREAM if you don’t want to use pre shave oil. If you use pre shave oil, you can use any shaving cream.

Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream. Use over Pre-Shave Oil and with safety razor. Taylor of Old Bond Street on bigbeardbalm.com blog. Use with straight edge razor for close shave.

 

ALUM BLOCK is not commonly known, but works great for closing your pores, combating razor burn, and helps stop bleeding from nicks and cuts. It’s an under-utilized antiseptic tool.

 

AFTER SHAVE BALM will soothe your head and help close your pores.

 

TRIM YOUR HAIR 

If your hair is longer, trim it down with clippers to 1/8 or 1/4 inches (1 or 2 setting on your clippers).

 

SHAVE YOUR HEAD

  1. Take a warm cloth and apply it to your head if its cooled down too much after your shower just to open up your pores again (if needed).

  2. Apply a thin layer of Pre-Shave Oil to your head. Pre-Shave Oil is a game changer when you shave anything.

  3. Add shaving cream to your head overtop of the Pre-Shave Oil.

  4. Pick up that razor and start shaving.

    • First shave with the grain.
    • To get closer, now shave against the grain. If your skin is very sensitive you may not want to do this. Using Pre-Shave Oil makes is way easier to shave against the grain as well.
    • Watch out for the different directions your hair grows. You want to shave in the right direction from the beginning so that you aren’t shaving the same spot to many times. That will increase irritation.

 

 FINISH STRONG

Start with an Alum Block to soothe and refresh your skin (optional).

After Shave Balm is the classic post shave product. Apply a thin layer to soothe your head, followed by a moisturizer that doesn’t clog your pores and has SPF to keep your skin safe from the sun.

Who Created The B.I.G. Company Inc.? Let Me Introduce you

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

Happy New Years gentlemen!
 
As 2016 is beginning, I thought you might be curious of Who's Behind The B.I.G. Company Inc.? Well, most of you know we're a small Canadian company that started with just my beautiful wife and I. The team as growing along with the beards and we're so THANKFUL for all you guys who have given us a shot at helping your beard. 
 
Here's the Team
 
 
Left to Right: Mitchell M. [Product Expert], Gabriel L. [a young adult I am mentoring], Andrew M. [Business Advisor], Myself [bald guy], Travis B. [Trends Expert], Jason C. [Business Advisor], Manoel B. [Business Advisor], Derek C. [Media Expert], Josh A. [the waiter at the restaurant]. 
 
Our Beginning ... 
 
My wife Khadija, and I started this company in 2014 with a passion for quality men's grooming products and a desire to help men grow their character. The two of us started with this dream and a couple hundred dollars in our pocket. Still working at our full time jobs and public speaking to crowds as big as 1000 people, we began. We grinded hard! 18 hours days and maxed out every credit card we had but we made it work. Eventually, we were able to quit our jobs and go full time on crafting the very best beard products available. 
 
Now you may have noticed two things from the picture above: why so many experts/advisors on the team and where is your wife? The reason for so many experts/advisors is because I wholehearted believe the following 2000 year old proverb from a guy named King Solomon, he said, "Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed." In order to grow The B.I.G. Company Inc. into a trusted men's grooming brand, my wife and I knew that we needed all the help we could get. In 2016 you can expect to see a whole bunch of new products from us made with the premium all natural ingredients that you're use to. 
 
Secondly, the reason you don't see my wife there is because she's holding the camera. She has a servant-like heart and is usually behind the scenes of whatever we do making sure that everyone is doing their job with a spirit of excellence for our customers. 
 
Our Mission:
 
Is to help men become better men. If you haven't see it before I'll show you now, B.I.G. stands for Being Incredible Gentlemen. This is the heart and soul of our company. How do we accomplish this? Not only do we make reference to it in our eBook, blogs, and social media posts, but we do a lot of public speaking. Mainly to youth and young adults but we've help teach leadership, personal development, and more for almost 5 years now. 
 
That's my beautiful wife beside me speaking to 100 youths and young adults. 
As 2016 moves forward, we'll be showing you guys more of what we are involved with in terms of helping other people and helping men become better men. We're so happy to do this journey with you guys and you can rest assured that every product purchased, every social media post shared, everything, is helping us impact the world for good! 
 
How Can You Help?
 
Spread the word! Got friends who would enjoy our products? Tell them our story, tell them about our premium quality all natural products. Every purchase helps us further our cause and the more followers we have on social media the of a positive influence we can have :)
From,
Alanzo Paul
President/Co-Founder
The B.I.G. Company Inc.

BOXING DAY BEARD SPECIAL!!!

Posted by Alanzo Paul on

 

There are high expectations for the number one rated beard firm on Amazon Canada, The B.I.G. Company Inc., who has announced that they will be participating in various Boxing Day events on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.fr. The small Canadian company has been making leaps and bounds throughout 2015, ranking with some of the best beard product brands on the web. Rivaling the Christmas and Black Friday sales volumes of beard conglomerates such as Honest Amish, Leven Rose, Grave Before Shave, Wild Willies, and more.

Company spokesman, Alanzo Paul, stated for the record, "partnering up with Amazon and expanding to more countries was a strategically advantageous move for us. This allows us to serve more customers which gives us high expectations for Boxing Day 2015."


Men with beards or men who are thinking about growing beards commonly face beard irritations such as the itch, dryness, and dandruff. The most common reasons for the irritations previously mentioned are: new hair growth which pokes the face as the hair begins to curl, dry climates, or poor beard hair and skin maintenance. Consequently, as stated above, growing a beard can be extremely uncomfortable and discouraging. Of course there is also the embarrassment felt when beard dandruff or 'beardruff' can be spotted on clothing. Providing relief from these irritants is The B.I.G. Company Inc.'s specialty.

The Boxing Day 2015 events will predominantly be for The B.I.G. Company Inc.'s organic beard balm and all natural leave-in beard conditioner. These two products contains an arsenal of premium ingredients: beeswax, shea butter, argan oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, just to name a few. Beeswax provides the hold that beardsmen desire. Shea butter provides substantial nutrients for beards to grow healthy. Argan oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E, both moisturize and provide itch relief. 

The Canadian beard firm's beard products contain natural ingredients with no binders, fillers or preservatives, making it suitable for beards of every size, shape, and experience level. The Canadian made beard products are devoid of many ingredients that trigger allergies, such as GMOs, parabens, and more.

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.
