Tools needed for beard care
Here are the tools you need to grow a beard. It doesn’t require too much and can be groomed with what’s at home. Basically, there is no tool dedicated to beard care, so we will use shaving tools. Mainly prepare the following three points.
- Razor & shaving cream
Razors and shaving creams are the most basic items you’ll definitely want. Razors come in a variety of shapes, and they generally use a type I rather than a T-shaver to trim the beard. This is because it is difficult to express fine nuances with a T-type razor. The razor can shave deeply, so the finish is more beautiful than the beard trimmer, and the bearded parts and other sharpness are clear. However, because it is difficult to handle, it can be said that it is somewhat advanced.
Not only the shape but also the length is an important point in the care of the beard. Scissors play a role in adjusting its length, and if you are accustomed to it, scissors and a razor will be able to care for your beard. In addition, we use cut scissors for cutting hair and scissors for beards, not for drawing works used for cutting paper. Both can be purchased for about 2,000 yen, so it is recommended that you purchase them.
- Beard Trimmer
Beginners are advised to purchase a beard trimmer. The chances of injuries are low and the time saved is overwhelmingly easy. There are various manufacturers that sell beard trimmers, but among them, it is especially recommended to purchase products from well-known manufacturers such as Panasonic and Philips. You can purchase something solid with a budget of 2,000 to 5,000 yen, so we recommend that you also purchase this especially for beginners.
Basic care and advice for your beard
Like everything in this life it is best to apply common sense, there are no magic formulas that make your hair grow as fast as you would like. If your beard is sparsely populated and you are under 25 years old, we advise you to have a little patience, over the years the density of the facial hair increases. On the other hand, there is genetics, if your father and grandparents are not very bearded, the most normal thing is that you are not either. The good news is that with some care, we can stimulate the growth of our beard.
Taking care of ourselves inside is as important as using the right products on the skin and hair. There are men who take vitamin complexes to help hair growth and quality. Our advice is to take care of your diet, do not abuse sugars or fats and try to eat more fruits and vegetables. In a few weeks, you will notice the changes in hair growth and also in your hair and body composition.
If you have been letting it grow for a short time, we recommend that you do not cut it in the first 2-3 months. Meanwhile, search the internet, magazines and other places for the style that you like the most and when you have it clear, go to a professional barber who will advise you the best according to the shape of your face and the style you are looking for.
THE FIRST STEPS TO A MAGNIFICENT BEARD
At the stage from beardless to about 2 weeks, you will begin to feel that the beard is rather annoyingly itchy, may look heterogeneous, and, as a rule, shaggy. When you shave, then, in fact, sharpen the ends of each hair, which, having received a sufficient length, begin to dig into the skin, which causes itching. Be a man! You just need to be patient a little, as it will not last long and will pass soon. We also recommend using a humidifier such as a beard oil. Alcohol-based moisturizers should be avoided because, on the contrary, they dry the skin. You need oil for regular care of your beard, so you can already start stocking up on this useful remedy.
At this stage, we do not recommend using shampoo, as the length is still quite short. We recommend that you wash your beard with a natural soap that does not contain irritating chemicals.
By the time you get through the itchy phase, your beard will look pretty untidy. To ennoble your appearance, we recommend that you trim the neck with a trimmer, trim the upper contour of the cheeks and the line of the mustache above the lips. If you are aiming for an annual beard, then you can leave it untouched. Any trimmer is suitable for you, the main thing is that the cutoff frequency is minimal, then you will achieve a clean and smooth result.
