Welcome back to the Bearded Blog, the home of all things bearded. Whether as a ﬁrst timer, or even after many years of bearded manliness, one day you may notice… Patches. In. The beard!!! Oh my my, what to do? Well before you try brother Ned’s chicken grease and yogurt plan, relax. There are a few different steps to go before the doc pronounces you medically deﬁcient in some non-growing-beard-able way. Consider these tips, and you may yet be able to avoid having to ﬁnd enough chicken grease to cover that ZZ Top.
1. Worrying the beard. Do you sometimes notice beard hairs wrapped around your ﬁnger? Stuck in the cheese paste, lingering thereon from lunch? Do your friends post videos of you tugging at your beard? You may have developed a terrible habit of worrying the beard, spinning it around and around as you contemplate your next big success story. The short answer is stop it. Pay more attention to where your ﬁngers go in your times of reverie, and soon that mane will be back to it’s lush consistency. This can happen if you are experiencing Itchy Beard Face,(IBF), if you think this is you, then see tip #2.
2. Clogging the beard. there are two things to guard against as you are lovingly maintaining your beard. One, unless you fall into a pool of Hal’s Jalapeño dip, you only need to wash the beard about 4 times a week. Every other day should be ﬁne. Second, to guard against IBF which can cause you to worry the beard, which in turn can lead to bald patches, make sure you use a top quality beard wash. When you do that washing, work your ﬁngers all the way through and down to the point you are massaging the skin a bit. Top it off with a high quality nice smelling BeardedCrew.com beard oil for moisturizing and conditioning. Done!
3. Not feeding the beard. Look, You can’t build houses without bricks, nor Prius’s without what, plastic trees and cardboard? Anyway, the same concept applies to the beard. See, your luscious chin forest(like much of the rest of you) is made from protein and fat. It’s also heavily reliant on Vitamins B5, B3, and B9. That means lean meats, nuts, egg yolks, milk, and plenty of leafy greens. You want to get that beard and body kickin? Feed it good stuff and soon your beard patches will be gone, and your back fur will be growing to your feet. Lucky, wifey!
4. Not grooming the beard. This is actually good news! Quick where is your boar bristle brush, and wide toothed comb? Does your beard still fondly remember the last time you diligently used these implements? If not, you may have Untrained Beard Syndrome(UBS). UBS happens because without good products, the beard hairs can dry out. Sometimes these coarse dry hairs can end up pointing in all different directions and make a beard look thin in areas, giving the illusion that a man cannot grow a full beard properly. A beard balm, along with a great beardedcrew.com beard oil will guard against this effect while also providing a medium hold to maintain those unruly straggling hairs. Do this simple step, and soon you’ll be sporting a full and luscious man mane that smells great too! Natch.
Till next time my Bearded Crew. Grow it, tend it, and lovingly oil it. Namaste.
