The Perfect Time To Grow A Beard

Why Is Right Now The Perfect Time To Grow A Beard?!

It's October which means Winter is right around the corner. If you wait until next month to start growing your beard, it'll be too late! Yes, I know next month is "No Shave November" - and a great month it is. However, getting an early jump on things is crucial especially if you aren't one of those guys with Homer Simpson genetics who can grow a beard overnight. Start growing a beard now and you will be able to keep your lady warm come December. If you don't, someone else will. If you won't do it for you, at least do it for her... She's counting on you, my friend.

Sincerely Yours,

How To Use Beard Oil - The Simple Way

How To Use Beard Oil - The Simple Way

If you have a beard or are trying to grow one chances are you've heard of beard oil. It seems to be everywhere these days. However as popular as it's become a lot of beardsmen, aspiring and accomplished, actually don't know how to use it. If you fall into this category don't feel bad about it; you've come to the right place. The truth of the matter is there are a ton of companies selling it and yet very few take the time to explain how to apply it properly. So here's how you do it:

1. The best time to apply beard oil is after a hot shower. Of course you can use it any time, but after a hot shower your pores are more open and ready to absorb nutrients and minerals. (Note: Make sure you towel dry your beard before using. If your beard is too wet it will act as a repellent because water and oil don't mix.)

2. Drop a dime sized amount of beard oil into your palm and rub your hands together focusing on the finger tips - not too much, but just enough to spread the oil around. The amount used varies depending on beard size and personal preference. Start with less because you can always add more, and a little goes a long way. 

3. After the oil is dispersed a bit, use your finger tips and massage the skin beneath your beard. A common mistake is neglecting the skin and just focusing on the beard itself. The skin is where the majority of nutrients are absorbed and is the foundation you build on. Look at it this way: If your beard were a plant, your skin would be the soil.

4. Now rub the remaining oil into the beard directly - starting at the base and moving outward to the end of your beard. Make sure you spread it evenly throughout. Spend a little more time on the trouble areas if any exist.

5. Once your beard has been thoroughly oiled you are done and can rinse your hands. You're good to go!

This whole process is super quick and doesn't need to take more than 60 seconds. These are five fast and easy steps to ensure you're getting everything possible from your beard oil. Good luck, gentlemen; for greatness awaits you.

New Product Coming Soon!

New Product Coming Soon!

A few years ago my brother and I were both growing beards - 'twas a glorious time. Now, anyone who has grown a beard knows that it can be a real pain in the ass. Itching, flaking, and a plethora of other skin conditions can haunt even the best of men. 

That's exactly what happened to me. Apparently my Irish skin is a bit sensitive, and so I began looking for products that could assist me on this beard journey. I found a ton of beard oils, but that's about it. I couldn't find any beard conditioner - not one. I tried a bunch of the oils, but none seemed to do the trick. 

After several months of scouring the earth for anything that could help I had a vision. An ancient medicine man emerged from the fog while I walked my dogs on that fateful morning. "If you build it they will come," he said. I knew then what I needed to do - make my own beard products! 

We decided to start with a conditioner being that there was such a void in that area, and so began a new journey - researching ingredients, talking to cosmetic biologists, testing out different formulas, etc. We wanted to start with our Grizzly Beard Conditioner and just focus on that as opposed to immediately releasing a bunch of products. For us, it wasn't and isn't about the money - sure money is good, but our primary concern from the very beginning was to give people the best product possible. Customer satisfaction above all else. 

Fast forward to present day, we are working on releasing our second product which is an unscented beard oil. That will be coming very soon so stay tuned. In the meantime make sure you grab a bottle of Grizzly Beard Conditioner: 8 ounces of the best shit on earth!

Thank you for your continued support. Beard Necessities is family owned and operated and everyone who rocks with us is a part of that family as well. We appreciate you more than you know.

The Key To Maintaining A Healthy Beard - What Every Beardsmen Needs To Know

5 Benefits to using Organic Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has been utilized in many ways since the Ancient Egyptians named it "the plant of immortality."

It is virtually unparalleled when it comes to skin and hair; so it's no surprise that it works wonders in the beard department. Here's why:

1) Alleviates Itching and Dryness

Aloe Vera has been shown to soothe all kinds of skin conditions and irritations - from Eczema to Seborrheic dermatitis. These are both common ailments of the beardsman. Fortunately, Aloe Vera can help; it attacks the fungi and bacteria that cause these skin conditions and restores the skins PH balance to its optimum level. 

2. Conditions

Aloe Vera has amazing penetration qualities due to the lingin found in the Aloe Barbadensis Leaf. It also has many similarities to keratin which is the naturally occurring protein found in hair cells. The Aloe Vera is able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and nourish from within. 

3) Anti-inflammatory 

Aloe Vera has been utilized to reduce inflammation for thousands of years. The reason for this is two little ingredients called Bradykinase, an analesgic anti-inflammatory enzyme along with salicylic acid which is a natural pain reliever. It's because of these ingredients that Aloe is excellent for any redness, discomfort, or skin inflammation. 

4) Reduces Beard Dandruff

Beards are an ideal environment for fungus to grow and live which is where dandruff comes from. It's no different than the hair on your head when it comes to harboring bacteria, and for that reason many beardsmen suffer from beard dandruff - also known as "beardruff." Aloe Vera has alkalizing properties that eliminates the acidic environment in which this bacteria grows. It is vital that you maintain the proper PH balance underneath your beard and Aloe Vera allows you to do that. 

5) Promotes Beard Growth

Many cases regarding lack of hair growth point us to the same thing: dead skin sells are blocking the passage of nutrients by clogging the hair follicles. Aloe Vera is packed with enzymes and amino acids that not only break down those dead skin cells, but then replenish them. 

To call Aloe Vera a superfood would be an understatement. It's jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids that are vital to a healthy beard. That is why we here at Beard Necessities, have built our conditioner around this ingredient. Give it a try, you will not regret it!

The Secret To Cultivating A Glorious Beard - Shhh!

manuka honey

 

 

Before we get into the benefits of Manuka Honey many of you many be wondering what it is, what makes it different than regular honey and how it can help you achieve the beard you desire.

What is Manuka Honey? Manuka honey comes straight from New Zealand. It is produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka Bush and it is considered one of the most beneficial and unique forms of honey in the world. It contains vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K with amino acids and vital minerals.

What makes it different? It has a tremendously packed nutritional profile. Think of Manuka Honey as the SUPERMAN of all honeys. It has 4x the nutrients and a considerably larger amount of enzymes than normal honey. These qualities create a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory property.

What does this mean for your beard?  Manuka Honey helps to balance the hair’s natural pH levels (between 4.5 - 5.5). Many beard products out there are using LOW quality ingredients and harsh chemicals that alter your hair's natural pH level to 10-11pH. Doing so, not only severely irritates your skin but it strips your hair of the natural oils it needs to stay healthy. Causing dry, coarse and damaged hair.

What does this mean for your skin? Like your hair, your skin has a natural pH level between 4.5 - 5.5. Having products throw off this natural balance can leave your skin weak, inflamed, itchy, dry, flaky and nutrient depleted. Good thing Manuka Honey helps to restore your skins natural pH balance!

How else can it help? Manuka Honey helps kill bacteria with its antibacterial properties. As you can imagine, bacteria can be easily collected and trapped in your beard from everyday sources - eating, touching, cell phones, etc. Manuka Honey fights to eliminate this bacteria leaving you with softer, stronger skin. It also restores moisture to your beard and skin keeping them hydrated and healthy. It truly is a superfood for your beard.

At Beard Necessities, we have integrity when it comes to choosing ingredients. We don't want to damage your beard in any way, we want the opposite - we want you and your glorious beard to flourish. That's why we include this superfood as one of our MAIN ingredients.
