Most brothers out there want a beard that inspires endless praise from onlookers. Who wouldn’t want a beard that could be labeled as “epic”? “Magnificent”? “Dope”? Maybe even “Hotep-tier”? If you strive to achieve a beard worthy of these descriptors, you’ll have to add another very important word to your vocabulary: “Pampered.”
Yeah, we know. The word “pampered” probably brings to mind your lady getting her nails and feet done, or maybe a spa day in the near future. But your beard is precious to you, right? So there’s absolutely no reason you shouldn’t give it the same attention and care a doting parent lavishes upon their little ones. Meticulous grooming and attention to detail are how you achieve true greatness in your facial hair. You’re worthy of a beard for the ages, and that means your beard deserve to be pampered.
Treat your beard with a comb and brush
But let’s get our facts in order here. “Pampering” your beard doesn’t mean going to the salon and sipping champagne. Nor does it require you to throw inordinate amounts of money at it, either. You can pamper your beard and bring out its best with nothing more than a humble Beard Comb and Beard Brush. The simple act of brushing out your beard is a great way to take care of your beard. It helps whisk away debris, dead skin, and loose hairs—all while giving you a better idea of just how long your facial hair has grown.
Now, the truly pampered life would mean having a group of personal assistants at your beck and call, all of them waiting to comb your beard for you. But that’s no way to live. We regular brothers are happy to take on the grunt work ourselves, taking our beard’s welfare into our own hands. No one knows what’s best for your beard like you do. So grab your brush or comb, and get ready to bring your beard to perfection.
The wonders of a wide-tooth beard comb
You step out of the shower with a wet beard. Where to begin taming it back into shape? The Beard Comb should be your weapon of choice. Your beard is at its weakest when wet, and it doesn’t take much to stress your beard hair beyond its limit. That can cause irreparable damage. A comb’s wide-spaced teeth are perfect for untangling a sopping-wet beard without putting unnecessary strain on the delicate hair follicles underneath.
Beard combs are also great for styling a beard, as they allow you to make precise choices with fewer strokes—and that means less strain on your face. You want to straighten things out, then visualize the style you’re going for. Put your comb to work and craft the ultimate look. A few passes with the comb should have you looking sharp and stylish in no time flat.
A beard brush is great for a mid-day touch ups
While combs are great for managing wet hair, a Beard Brush works best when everything is nice and dry. A brush covers a much larger area of your facial hair, allowing you to more effectively define its overall shape. On a similar note, a brush is also the perfect tool for directing your whiskers in a particular direction, which is essential for training your facial hair to grow and look the way you want.
Beard brushes are also invaluable for the way they help properly distribute the oils of your beard—and by that, we mean both natural and man-made Beard Oil. Evenly distributed oils ensure your entire beard is healthy, while also preventing patches of hair from becoming itchy or irritated. Dab on a bit of Beard Oil daily, work it in generously with a brush, and you’ll quickly find you have a much healthier beard overall.
Why not both?
Remember, healthy beard hair are flexible. Your grooming routine should be, too. No one says you have to use one tool and stick with it. Beard brushes and combs can come in handy in many different situations, and using both at the right times will help your beard look better, and last longer. When you start incorporating these items into your daily beard care routine, you’ll wonder how you ever went without them.
There’s nothing wrong with a little pampering—not when it’s your beard we’re talking about. If you want an unbelievably luxurious beard that’s the envy of everyone who’s dealing with a patchy, uneven mess, the simple answer is to treat your whisker like a baby. Careful grooming with a Beard Brush and Beard Comb, some Beard Oil to keep everything supple and healthy—yeah, you’re on your way to an award-winning look, friend.
