How To Grow An Amazing Beard
A wise man once said, "life is better with a beard." He was right. Beards aren't a fad either, and if history has taught us anything it's that they're here to stay. Ancient Egyptians, the 300 Spartans, Abe Lincoln, and Mr. T all had one thing in common - Beards!
So if beards are the key to a happy life, then knowing how to grown one is crucial! Now that we agree on that, here are 5 tips to growing an amazing beard:
1. Patience. Too often people throw in the towel prematurely; before they've given themselves a chance be successful. It's a process, and you need to treat it as such. Unless your related to Sasquatch you won't be able to grow a beard overnight. Let it happen, and remember you can't rush greatness.
2. Upkeep. There is no question that taking proper care of your beard will help it grow. The problem is there are so many beard care products on the market that are harmful. Many companies use ingredients and chemicals that are way too harsh and will actually prevent healthy growth. The longer the ingredient list, the more careful you need too be.
3. Shape. There are so many different styles when it comes to growing a beard, and although you can always change your mind or start over it's good to pick which direction you're going in right off the bat. Many people cut the beard too close to the jaw line and then realize it was a mistake. In general, the beard line should be slightly above the Adam's apple.
4. Trim. Regardless of what kind of beard you have, cutting the split and dead end hairs is necessary. Although you may initially "lose" a little bit of beard length, it promotes healthy growth and you will absolutely see the results.
5. Diet. Believe it or not the types of foods you eat drastically affect beard growth. You've heard the expression "you get out of something what you put into it." Beards are very much like that. Some of the best foods for beard growth are salmon, green vegetables, berries, avocado, and almonds just to name a few. Eat well, grow well - it's science actually.
There you have it. 5 tips to growing an amazing beard. Implement each of these and may your beard never be the same. Good luck, gentlemen.
Beard Conditioner vs Beard Oil
Should you be using beard oil or beard conditioner? A very common question among the bearded. The truth is you should probably be using both. Let me explain.
Beard oil and conditioner are pretty similar, but too often they're confused to be one in the same and they aren't. Think of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro - similar but not the same.
Beard oil moisturizes and hydrates. If your beard is dry and dull, a good beard oil could be just the pick me up it needs. Beard Conditioner on the other hand more so softens and repairs damaged hairs as well as eliminates a lot of the skin conditions that come along with having a beard - beardruff, itchiness, redness, etc.
I like to look at beard oil as the quick fixer when you've got a hot date and you're running a few minutes behind. If your beard is looking extra luxurious when you pick her up she won't care that you're 10 minutes late. Beard conditioner is more long term. It's like eating healthy - kind of a pain in the ass but the more consistent you are with it the more success you'll have. It's actually a lot easier than eating healthy because you don't have to force feed yourself broccoli and spinach all day. Instead, a little Beard Conditioner 3 to 4 times a week in the shower and your beard will be magnificent.
So you see, which one you choose to use comes down to what you're looking for. A fully equipped beardsmen should have both nearby. Bearding is your craft, and these are a couple of your most valuable weapons. Pick wisely my friends...

Beard Fact #148
With a great beard comes great responsibility, and for that reason we must continue to spread the knowledge we acquire on this path to glorious beardom.
Today I'm giving you a piece of wisdom as told to me by the Ghost of Aristotle. I was hiking through the rugged terrain of the Mont Blanc Mountains in Italy when he emerged from the camp fire suddenly. He took a couple marshmallows and gave me this gem before he vanished. Learn it, live it, share it.
Good day beardsmen.
How To Grow A Beard In 7 Simple Steps
If you've had a beard for while it may seem like this goes without saying, but if you're new to the beard journey there's a pretty simple question that a lot of people have and that is: How do I grow one?
The easy answer is to stop shaving, but there is a little more to it than that. So here's what you must do:
STEP 1. You must envision greatness. You have to see greatness before you can become it. Michael Jordan saw the ball go through the net before he ever shot it. Treat your beard like a game winner.
STEP 2. You must have the proper tools. If you are to grow a beard it must become your craft - the proper weaponry is vital.
STEP 3. Fight through the struggle. This is where most people fall down. Do not let the fact that your beard itches or is growing in patchy deter you. Persist my friend; for on the other side of that struggle is glory.
STEP 4. Time to pick a shape. Be swift and precise - or better yet go to a barber who specializes in beards and tell him how you want your beard to look.
STEP 5. Maintenance. One does not simply grow a beard and then abandon it - he must maintain it. Using the proper products, keeping it neat, etc. Take care of your beard, and your beard will take care of you.
STEP 6. Be patient and do a lot of manly shit. Chop wood, break bricks with your bare hands, climb mountains - do it all. Beardliness is next to manliness.
STEP 7. Continue! Growing a beard is an ongoing process. Make sure you enjoy it, and remember you are the master of your fate. Good luck, beardsmen.
New Year, Same Beard
2015 was a good one. Some trials. Some errors. Some ups. Some downs. More ups than downs though. I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions. It seems like if you want something or if you want to change something the best time to do that is right now. Like close out of this page and go get what you want. Nobody is going to give you anything. You have to take it. Be the dream. Carpe fuckin' Diem! Keep kicking ass in 2016!
"A man who shaves his beard because his girlfriend tells him to deserves neither." Not the beard, and certainly not the woman.
If your girlfriend doesn't like your current beard it's because it needs work, not because she hates beards - even if she doesn't know it yet. It's your job to show her how much she actually loves and adores them.
Lucky for you, it isn't hard to do; after all beards are pretty loveable. First off you need to keep your beard groomed. Hairs all over the place make your beard look messy. Regardless of the beard style you have - Keep it neat. You can have a foot long beard, but you still need to trim the split end hairs and stragglers. It's also a lot easier to keep clean that way.
Another necessary step in this process is getting your beard healthy. A wise man once said, "your beard is a temple" so we must treat it as such. We all know products can be a pain in the ass, but the truth is conditioning your beard a few times a week while your taking a shower can make a huge difference - so to take a page out of Nike's book... JUST DO IT!
It's that simple really. Keep it trimmed and healthy, and instead of nagging you to cut it your girlfriend will be swimming in your beard. Stay wavy my friends.
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.
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.
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!
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.
