The Authority On Everything From Beard Oil’s / Balm’s & Kicking Ass

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.

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

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.

Hobo Beard Oil Review – Quality or Crap?

Does Hobo Make a Good Beard Oil & Balm?

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.

Can You Use Beard Oil On Your Hair

While it's not recommended for everyone using it on your hair does have it's benefits. With the various types and oil consistencies on the market you will definitely be able to find the best mix of style and consistency for you. I'm going to reiterate consistency because if you have a history of easily clogged pours that will irritate or obstruct the hair follicle from growing then you're going to want to stick with a lighter base. This means staying away from any beard balm and using a lighter oil base product.

Some specific oil blends are formulated to not only be used as a dual use product but also promote hair growth with the active ingredients and essential oil combinations they are made with.
