Here at 'The Beard Struggle' we love reaching out to our readers and provide you with fresh tips and tricks in order to promote a healthy balanced beard care routine. Today, let's refresh our train of thought as we discuss 3 Tricks For A Simplistic Beard Care Routine...


Before you even consider splashing any oils, balms and butters anywhere near that rough and rugged face of yours, you might want to take a little time to steadily comb through your face rug to remove any knots, tangles and troublesome areas you might find hiding away in the process.

Remember, it is not a race, you don't get any extra cookies for coming first, so don't go hard at it like a bull seeing a red rag, but instead go nice and steady, gently detangling any tangles you might meet along the way. The last thing you're going to want to be doing is pulling half your face off whilst in a rush, so give yourself a little time and care to do things correctly.


Now your furry man mane has been groomed, it is time to slap on a little beard oil, balm, butter or whatever other product you have chosen to trust.

Make sure you apply a little at a time, as it proves a much easier task to 'top up' as and when needed more than it does in trying to remove an overuse of product.

I tend to 'activate' my tonic & balm in the palm of my hand before application. This sees a much neater, even amount applied to my face fuzz. When you've done, comb through once more to help the product reach nice and deep into your fuzz, seeing that the oil reaches the very base of your beard for optimal results all round.


If you have become a regular reader of our blog, firstly THANK YOU! and secondly I'm sorry if this might seem a touch repetitive, but do not use that standard 'over the counter' shampoos and conditioners on your face fuzz, otherwise you might be having the reverse effect and causing your facial hair more harm than good in the long run.

Standard shampoos and conditioners contain much higher levels of controlled chemicals that are specifically designed to strip away any built up grease and dirt upon you head, whilst helping eliminate head dandruff.

If you entrust these products on your face fur you'll not have to wait too long before you begin noticing reverse effects such as dry, brittle to touch facial hair growth, as well as itching, rashy, flaky skin begin to form below. So before you splash your cash, be smart and invest your hard earned money wisely my friends. And trust a beard wash and conditioner that was made with both you and your beard in mind.

That's Wednesday's blog over for this week my fellow readers. As always if you have a beard related question or query you'd like to ask then please be sure to do so in the comments section you'll spy provided below.

And until next time, Beard on Brothers, Beard on...

Her Bearded Desire – Are Men with Beards More Desirable to the opposite sex?

by Jonathan Adcox January 24, 2018 1 Comment

A woman’s attraction to her counterpart is a direct reflection of her expectations on that person. Whether it is a casual fling, a uncommitted or committed relationship, a woman is going to make the best decision she can based off of her perceived impression or intentions of that man based on their appearance. Ultimately, in a world where a woman has to base her needs on first impressions, just like a job interview, your beard, or lack of beard, may be applying for her next conquest.
