This blog post is also available in: Dutch

Our first blog article was titled: How to grow a mighty beard? With some luck you should have a little beard by now and in some cases you maybe are one of the happy few that can grow a beard fast. In this blog post it is all about beard care.

Trim your beard

When you want a long beard, then you should obviously not start trimming it anytime soon, but at some point your beard can look a bit disheveled and then it is good to start trimming your beard a bit.

It is best to use a trimmer with guards. When you first start trimming your beard, do it slow and carefully. You can better spend some more time then messing it up and waiting for your beard to grow back.

First trim your cheeks. Choose a bigger guard and start from your jawline and work your way up. When you want to trim more, you can use a smaller guard that will shave off more. This way you are less likely to make any mistakes.

You can use a comb and scissors for the other parts of your beard. Comb your beard well and use your fingers to determine the length and then cut it to the desired length.

You could use clippers for this, but one wrong move and your beard is ruined. Repeat this process a few times until you have the desired length.

And we should of course not forget the mustache. It is easiest to use your beard trimmer and a big guard to first trim your mustache. Afterwards you can use scissors and a comb.

Tip:
For a very stylish look, you can choose to shave off your beard under your jawline, so no neckbeard. This will make your beard look way better already.

Beard care

A nicely trimmed beard is step 1, but good beard care is just as important. In a longer beard you have more chance of getting dirt and flakes in your beard. Or what about windy days or a day to the pool? This will make your beard look dry.

There are basically two kind of products for your beard. Products to cleanse your beard and products to style your beard. Styling it? Yes, when you have a decent beard, you can style your beard with special products.
