Hello and good day to you all as we welcome you back to the TBS beard blog, through the power of the internet!
Today I wanted to discuss with you a handful of rather common hiccups that many of us make when it comes to our beards and how to care for them.
Don't worry, we're not taking needless shots in your direction, but instead gently highlighting a few mistakes we may or may not have made ourselves, in order for you to be saved a similar fate.
So, let us begin today's blog, which is smartly titled 4 Tips To Help Avoid Beard Grooming Mistakes...
CHOOSING TO TRIM YOUR FACE FUZZ TOO SOON CAN'T EVER END WELL!
One of the most common mistakes new beard growers make is feeling a touch out of their depth, and likely a tad scruffy as they attempt to trim their newly growing face fuzz.
This usually only cuts away all the hard work you've already made, and mistakes often happen way too easily as your beard is yet to establish itself how it should.
The simplest advice given here is to let your facial hair grow for several weeks, if not months before even considering trimming anything. fi you can't hold your water you could always visit your beard barbershop who knows exactly what is needed to shape things along nicely.
CUTTING COSTS WHEN IT COMES TO BEARD CARE PRODUCTS SHOULD BE AVOIDED!
As tempting as it is to save a few quid (dollars over your side of the pond) when it comes to purchasing beard care products, such as beard oils, balms, butters, and washes, the old saying goes - 'you get what you pay for!' and beard care products are rarely any different.
We're all guilty of cutting costs when we can, but doing so on the essentials should be avoided. It took me a while of trying and testing numerous products before finally discovering The Beard Struggle range of beard care products.
Many were ok, some not so much and felt sticky and somewhat cheap and tacky. Whereas I can honestly say TBS wipes the floor with all the competitors, proving to be our customers favourite to use.
DYING YOUR FACE FUR MIGHT JUST END IN DISASTER!
Many men choose to dye their beards for a whole host of reasons, some don't want those grey hairs to invade our face forests, whereas others might just prefer a change or a different colour of preference.
All I do suggest it to make use a temporary beard dye first up, as sometimes these drop in the ocean ideas can prove rather detrimental to your beards wellbeing.
And NEVER, I repeat...NEVER use a dye that isn't made specifically for your face. This can lead to face burns, rashes, blotting and a whole host of ugly. I've seen that happen more times than I care to count, so please, be smart out there folks.
PULLING HAIRS AND PLUCKING AWAY AT YOUR FACIAL HAIR WON'T HELP!
Do you ever find yourself sat having a quiet moment and feeling through your beard, and finding a not, split end or something that just doesn't sit right? Me too.
But the worst thing you could ever do here is to source out that hair and snap it clean from your face fur. This won't help your issues, and can rather easily lead into a bad habit, which will have you pulling away at your face at any given chance, this will then, of course, lead to bald spots forming in your beard. And lose-lose for everyone, am I right?
When you do find something a little odd hiding away in your beard, rather than pluck it, check it out in a mirror, then snip it with some trusty beard scissors as and when necessary.
You'll often find when you find a knot or snag in your face forest you can easily work it out with your fingers rather than needing to pluck away at your face.
So, that sees today's blog topic come to a fine close, for now, my furry faced friends and beardy admirers. As ever we love to read your comments and answer your questions, so please be sure to fire away in the comments section you'll easily spot directly below this post.
