Growing A Full Beard

Whether you're a first-time grower or a seasoned veteran, these growing a full beard tips will help you reach your whiskered potential

The Fundamentals

Like anything else, growing a great beard comes down to a few basics:

diet, exercise, plenty of sleep, and a little everyday maintenance.

Growing A Full Beard

First and foremost, be patient

A truly epic beard is the product of self-restraint. When you first start growing, resist the urge to trim or style, and leave it untouched for the first 4-6 weeks. This will allow the hairs to grow in evenly (some grow faster than others), and help you pick a style that suits its length and thickness.

Know How (and When) to Trim

Pruning is essential to a well-groomed beard—even if you plan on growing it out. Invest in a quality trimmer, and find the right technique to suit your master plan.

Love Thy Beard Oil

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: nothing tames a beard like regular use of beard oil. There are many varieties to choose from, in a range of manly scents, but all of them will condition hairs to make them softer and shinier.

Keep It Smooth: Combs and Brushes

Okay, so you've grown your beard: Now it's time to bend it to your will. A good beard comb or brush will train your hairs in the right direction—and distribute conditioning oils for maximum effect.

Remember that less is more and you can always trim more another day.

In terms of maintenance we’d recommend rinsing the beard thoroughly everyday in the shower and applying beard oil daily. You can wash the beard with a beard wash anywhere between one and 3 times a week.
