It is that time of the year again when men are going to be seen with stubble faces and 5 O’clock shadows. It is time for boys to turn into men. Men who have not yet explored the idea of facial hair surmounting and enhancing their jaw lines should now be jumping into the beard wagon. Though a brave decision, you wouldn’t be regretting it later!
Yes, it is a long commitment.
Yes, it is pretty difficult.
Yes, it is a challenge.
But hey, nothing worth comes easy, right?
The next four weeks are going to turn you from an average guy next door to an ultimate male machismo figure.
But how do you do that?
The question has been asked too frequently. The process might be confusing to some while completely challenging to others. But you don’t have to worry, we have something just for you. Here is everything you need to need to grow a better beard.
- Patience is the key
When you finally will be able to grow a beard, you are not just going to get facial hair as a result, but you are going to get to show off your most impressive trait – Patience.
Yes, growing a beard takes a lot of patience and perseverance.
You need to put away everything that is stopping you from getting that ultimate beard and gather all the patience you can find to help it grow.
Generally people believe that beards can be measure in lengths. But this is not true. Only a patient man who is willing to give it his all knows it is measured in months. Each month length presents to you a different challenge that you need to cross. Your beard would be itchy, patchy, shaggy and all kinds of stuff. But you don’t have to worry. You need to keep going. This is only temporary.
Just keep some beard oil by your side and you will be good to go!
- Prepare for the best, expect the worst!
When joining the journey of growing a beard, all men out there should be ready for the worst; especially when it is the first time. Your facial hair is going to grow in a weird, patchy and uneven pattern. This pattern may or may not complement your face, your personality and your jaw line. But this is no reason to lose your heart!
It is all going to go away with the right beard grooming kits.
Oh well, one more thing! You are going to be very itchy around your new beard growth. You will feel what hell might feel like, especially during summers. This can be combated with a bit of beard oil and a quality beard wash.
But whatever you do and no matter what you face, just stay strong and take pride in your beard journey.
- Hygiene is the key
Most men do not realise how essential hygiene is for a fully grown healthy beard. Cleansing your facial hair with a beard wash, using a beard conditioner to tame it later is a significant part, no matter what stage your beard journey is at.
Why is it so important?
Well, for starters, the pollution around you encourages the development of grime inside your beard hair, which can not only lead to a dirty beard but can also cause a lot of itching. This can also lead to clogging of your facial pores and hair follicles. You need to keep your face protected!
Apart from this, it is also important to keep your hands away from your facial hair. Yes, your facial hair is itchy and you want to cool your face off by scratching it or rather shaving it off completely, but don’t be driven by irritation. You need to resist all these bad feelings. They are not healthy for you in the long run. You should deal with this problem through other and better solutions.
It might not be your cup of tea but growing a beard is an amazing journey that every man on this planet should undertake, at least once. Beards can give you amazing amount of confidence. You can actually feel yourself becoming the boss of your own life! Just keep your mind on one target and achieve it. Take the leap.
Happy beards to you!
