1. Start With The Skin

Let’s start by debunking the common myth that some guys just aren’t lucky enough to be able to grow a good or full beard.  Not true.  The secret to growing your beard all comes down to your skin, and how you care for it.  If you clean, moisturize and exfoliate your face, you’re much more likely to be successful in achieving the beard you want.  To avoid that patchy look that most guys are afraid of, check for any ingrown hairs since this can prevent your beard from growing evenly.   Using the right shaving cream can also help to keep your skin primed and eliminate irritation and ingrown hairs.  Kahunabeards offers a variety of shaving creams for men including shaving gel creams, shaving soaps and hypoallergenic and anti-allergic shaving cream options as well. Kahunabeards also sells sanitizers to help keep your beard clean and fresh.

 

2. Brush Often

If you’re wondering how to grow your beard faster, then brushing or combing it with the right tools will absolutely help.  Add brushing to your daily grooming practise. Brushing your beard on a regular basis is so important to beard grooming and growth.  Daily brushing will help train your beard hair to grow downwards instead of outwards, which is obviously more desirable. It will also help to distribute the natural oils throughout your beard and will eliminate any dandruff that may develop.  Check out Kahunabeards.com for a wide array of brushes and combs for your grooming purposes.  When it comes to brushes and combs, you definitely need one specifically for your beard grooming.  No regular comb will do.  We offer several options such as stainless steel beard combs, as well as wood brushes and combs. Check out our site to find the best option for you.

3. Trimming Is Key

Trimming your beard is important because it helps keep your beard from getting overly dry and it prevents those unsightly split ends. Trimming your beard will help keep it looking and feeling healthy and it will allow you to keep its shape nicely.  You want to put your best face forward, and a clean, trimmed beard will go a long way towards achieving your overall look.  In order to trim your beard properly, you need to have the right tools.  This isn’t the time to improvise or use less than quality products.  When you’re growing your beard, it’s not recommended that you trim for at least the first 3 weeks but after that time, regular trimming can actually promote hair growth, helping you to grow your beard faster.  Kahunabeards.com sells the BellyLady multifunctional shaver set.  We also offer the 4 in 1 rechargeable trimmer sets from Kemei and CkeyiN.  Check out our website for a complete list of the top quality trimmers and shavers available at a competitive price.

4. Define Your Neckline

When growing your beard, one of the most common mistakes is trimming your beard to your jawline when in fact, you should be using your neckline.  In order to properly find your neckline, take your two hands, and make an “L” shape with your thumb and index finger and place them next to your ears.  Where your thumb ends, is generally where your neckline begins.  Alternatively, place your index and middle finger together and hold them on your Adam’s apple.  This should also get you to your neckline. When using your trimmers or shaver,  it is advisable to set the length approximately 2 settings shorter than your beard length.  Finding your proper neckline and defining it will go a long way to helping you achieve the best results when it comes to your beard’s growth and grooming.

 

5. Oils and Balms Are A Beard’s Best Friend

Never underestimate the importance of beard oils and balms.  These products should definitely become part of your daily routine.  Beard oils and balms are very useful tools when you’re growing your beard because they can really help eliminate a lot of the itchiness during the initial growth stage.  Balms and oils also smell good, and we don’t really need to go into the benefits of that, do we?  Beard oil also helps to nourish the skin underneath your beard which helps to promote healthy hair growth.  As if that wasn’t enough to sell you on the tremendous importance of these products, beard oil and balm also helps to keep your beard soft and smooth since facial hair tends to be much more coarse than the hair atop your head.  Kahunabeards.com has a huge selection of beard oils and beard balms for you to choose from.  If you’re looking for an argan blend, known for its moisturizing abilities or you prefer an organic blend, we offer them all.  There are many natural oils to choose from when you’re looking for the right beard oil for your needs and mostly, it comes down to the smells that you prefer.  As for beard balms, the same idea applies.  Kahunabeards.com carries Cosprof, OMY LADY, Blue Zoo and more. 

 

The bottom line when it comes to growing and grooming your beard is to stay clean, be patient and use the right products.  If you follow our tried and true tips, you’re bound to be set up for beard growing and grooming success.  Good luck!
