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.

How To Grow A Beard In 7 Simple Steps

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.
