Every Girl's Crazy For A Sharp Beard Man
Valentine's day is right around the corner, and if you don't want to end up crying alone in a tub of ice cream like JR here, then we have a few tips for to make sure your beard brings all the girls to the yard.
It is no secret that women love beards, a 2020 study by Dixson and Brooks showed that not only did women find men with facial hair more attractive, but they also saw them as healthier, more masculine, and better fathers.
But here is the kicker, it can't just be any old beard, you have to take care of it! So we are going to help you crack the code to a beard so good it drops jaws, and maybe a few strategic pieces of clothing in the process.
Step 1: Wash Your Beard
Look, you've got to keep your beard clean, and if you are one of those guys who never washes their beard I want you to know you are the reason people think there is poo in beards!
Make sure you use a wash specifically designed for beard hair, you don't want to use a regular shampoo or bar soap, as that will dry out your skin, and be harmful to your beard.
Step 2: Condition Your Beard
Trust me, if there is one thing you want your beard to be - it's soft. You want your beard to be something she wants near her face (and other sensitive areas) without causing irritation or a rash.
The best way to do that it with a good beard conditioner, and if you really want to earn bonus points consider using a leave-in conditioner to take it to another level. Conditioner will lock in the moisture, and fortify the hair to prevent damage... but most importantly it will make your beard feel amazing, and like we said earlier, you want her to think it feels amazing.
Step 3: Beard Oil
This one should be pretty simple but now, but it surprises me how many guys still don't realize they need to use beard oil. Your skin produces a natural oil called sebum, as your hair grows out it draws the oil away from the face which can leave you feeling dry and itchy.
Beard oil is specifically designed to add that moisture back to the skin, which not only prevents dryness and itching, but it also creates a healthier environment for the follicle, allowing you to grow your beast beard ever!
Step 4: Beard Butter
Beard butter is the Swiss Army Knife of beard products! Seriously, not only will this help soften your beard throughout the day, but you can use it to style your beard to perfection, and help control those pesky fly-aways.
Step 5: Trim Your Beard
Look, we have all driven by a house in the neighborhood that just lets their lawn grow out of control, and we have all seen the yard that is mowed in perfect rows, the difference between the two is clear, and the same goes for your beard.
It is amazing the difference a good trim can make in the appearance of your beard, whether you are doing it yourself at home with a great beard trimmer or if you prefer to find a good beard barber in your area, trimming your beard is important.
