How to keep a beard growing

When Does a Beard Stop Growing

It's every mans biggest fear, a borderline pandemic...

When Beard Growing Stops

The truth is that it Never Stops, you have obviously done something to mess up how manly your are. Start making a checklist to see if you have made any of these common man card taking mistakes:

1. Made a Checklist

Men don't make checklists, you are only allowed to write your thoughts in three ways, in dirt with a sharp object, by peeing on a wall or by burning something.

2. Went On a Girly Diet

Have you recently been convinced by your girlfriend that you should stop eating meat and start being part of the solution. Then you have bigger issues then your beard, you have become what we in animal kingdom call a twerp. You should be reading this having whatever you're currently eating drip blood on the keyboard.

3. Neglected Your Only Friend, BeardHow to keep a beard growing

If you haven't bought a beard oil or balm product then what did you expect. Your beard can only carry you for so long before it needs you to step up and bring something to the relationship. No wonder your girlfriend wanted you to stop eating meat you selfish fool.

4. Cried

This one goes without saying, men don't cry... we throw up out of our eyes.

Man That Uses Leave In Beard Conditioner

Leave In Conditioner For Beards

The Best Leave In Conditioner For Your Beard

1. Honest Amish Beard Balm Leave-in ConditionerHonest Amish Balm

Honest Amish makes a great all natural leaving in conditioner and balm. While it claims to be Vegan friendly which doesn't seem to make much man sense to me and shouldn't matter, has that too. A ton of great stuff like
pumpkin seed oil, avocado oil and a crap ton of nut butters

While it may sound a little hipster and dorky it actually works very well. While it doesn't claim to have all the thrill ingredients that Amish does but it works deceivingly well. I got this balm as a gift and thought "what a horrible gift" at first but it remains to one of all time favorites. Now I might be bias because it was one of the first beard balms I slapped on my face but I still think it kicks ass.


3. Smooth Viking Beard BalmSmooth Viking Beard Cream

Well first off what a killer name, who doesn't want to be a little more viking like in life. The good thing about this one is that it's one of the least greasy ones on the market. Sometimes living in Arizona I won't waste time with certain brands in the summer because the heat just make you feel like a greasy Italian mobster. Not the look I'm going for, I want a clean look that makes women creep. Solid choice my friends!

Does Shaving Make Your Beard Grow Faster

Is Shaving Making Your Beard Grow Even Faster?

Well I hate to break it to you and probably make you lose the bet you had with your friend about this but the answer is NO. 

There has never been any scientific evidence other than bro science that has been able to the frequency you cut your hair follicles and the increased speed of hair growth.

So why does it seem like this has to be true? Why did you probably bet shaving and beard growthyour life on this wide spread myth? Well it's probably because the arch of your maturity aligned with a decreased time between shaving intervals or simply, you went through puberty and thought holy crap I'm shaving more and more every year. The truth is body and facial hair take longer to mature than something easy to identify like your height for instance. It's easy to look back and remember you stopped growing in 7th grade but if you look back at the time and think you had a healthy beard then you're wrong. Go back and look in pictures and you'll be embarrassed for even calling the mess a beard.

Finally there are two ways that you can increase your beard growing rate, nutrition/supplementation and skin care.

Summer Beard Growth

Do Beards Grow Faster in Summer?

Beards Grow Faster During Summer!

For two simple reasons that might not be too obvious but they are 100% accurate and the reason why you are in fact more manly when it's hot out.

1. Increased Activity

Those scientific wizards in lab coats have proved several times over that when you are more active your body produces more testosterone. Now we can connect the dots from the, people are more generally more active in the summer. There are some rare cases where you have a great life and snowboard all day during the winter but that's an exception to the rule. We've all seen those lovely ladies at the gym who have tried their hand at using male hormones... testosterone increases body & beard hair!

2. Increased Blood Flow

This one is a little more obvious but any organ in your body that receives more blood flow becomes more active. The biggest organ in your body is no exception (that's your skin if you got lost or got distracted by my awesome writing style and started day dreaming about us playing poker.) as blood flow increase so does the ability for your capillaries to expand.

In conclusion, yes beards do in fact naturally rock harder & grow more in the summer. Summer Beard Growth

Local Stores That Sell Beard Oil

Beard Oil Near Me

Where You Can Find Beard Oil Near You!

1. Walgreens

2. Target

3. Walmart

4. Macy's

5. CVS

While beard oils are growing in popularity you're here because you ran into the same problem that I didn't, where in the hell do I buy them... While the best quality beard products are online you've made it to this point because you're just as impatient as I am and you're willing to buy a less than steller product locally and buy one online to get the best of both worlds. The instant gratification and a better product on the way!

Above is a list of stores that at the time I found ACTUALLY had the products in the store and not an only available on the web trick.

Flammable Beard Oil

Is Beard Oil Flammable?

Can Using Beard Oil Increase The Chances Your Beard Lights on Fire?

The simple answer is NO, now there are some exceptions to this rule but for the most part most quality beard oils are not made in an alcohol or flammable based liquid. Now I can't say you won't come across some homemade oil that a guy made in his tub that he thought would be a great product to sell and mixed it with some hair spray or something moronic but that's the exception not the norm.

This is a real concern, imagine you're rocking a giant beard and you happen to run a torch all day or you're welding a MAN project together, don't you think you might want to know that your beard is safe and not a nightly news story ready to happen.

Good news is, your're fine. Most brands will actually moisturize and in fact create an awesome beard that is less likely to burn like a dried bush.  Visit our home page for other beard articles.

Hobo Beard Oil Review - Quality or Crap?

Does Hobo Make a Good Beard Oil & Balm?

Hobo Beard OilHobo has done a great job of getting some of the best ingredients that you would want in a oil & balm without the greasy side effect that you can sometimes get from mixing oils. Like any product that contains jojoba and almond oil you can guarantee that you will love the way your beard feels after the first time you oil up. While they lack the extensive selection that some of the other top companies have don't let that scare you away, it's been my experience that sometimes the quality gets lost when a company's pure focus is increasing the quantity of products so they appeal to a larger market. Hobo Beard Oil Bundle Pack

Bundle Your Beard Products

With one of the least expensive bundle/holiday packs you can appreciate the fact that they
don't up charge you per product when you buy one of their bulk packs. As you learned in our article on beard oil for hair growth a bundle pack is a perfect solution for anyone wanting to create a face that is ripe for growing the best beard on the block. Especially with the quality of ingredients that Hobo puts into each of their products.


Hair Growth With Beard Oil

Do Beard Oils Help Growth

Can a Beard Oil Really Help Hair Grow?

While this falls under the "As Seen On Tv" side of the internet and products but there is some truth to this claim. While a particular formula or serum won't 10x your hair growth it can directly contribute to how fast your Paul Bunion style beard grows. Just like tending to a garden, the quality of your soil dictates the harvest. The same goes for the act of growing a beard that will raise your clout and have women consistently throw themselves at for the narly beard you are sporting.

What Ingredients Are Important For Promoting Hair Growth?

1. Eucalyptus Oil

  • A great anti-inflammatory as well as an antibacterial which makes a must for any DIY beard oil formula you make because it creates a great environment for growth.

2. Coconut Oil

3. Vitamin E Oil

  • An awesome addition that has been linked to nourishing the skin and also have been linked to holding off father time by delaying the aging process.

In conclusion, Can you grow your beard faster than the average man... Yeah, eat a 10lb steak a day and add these oils to your beard on a daily basis and watch your beard hit the floor. For more information on beard oil products visit our home page.
