Keeping your beard looking great involves much time and a whole lot of effort from the wearer. Some folks think it is as simple as stepping away from the razor and even label us as 'lazy'. Well, you couldn't be further away from the truth! Combing your beard will become a key factor in helping you maintain a smart beard. And here are just a few reasons combing your facial forest will be highly beneficial to you...
COMBING YOUR BEARD HELPS EVEN OUT THOSE OILS!
When you apply your beard balms and/or oils using a comb will help even out your chosen product whilst helping the oils reach those hard to reach by hand places. It is real important that you use a comb designed for the use of beards to avoid any beard snagging and pulling on the hair which may in turn cause unnecessary hair loss and damage to your beard. I suggest using a wide tooth comb or better still, why not check out our range of beard combs that are hand crafted to not only work as a great companion for your beard, but it also looks and feels great too.
COMBS CAN COME IN REAL HANDY IN THE SHOWER TOO!
I have several combs in my home that I use for my beard. When washing my face fuzz I take with me a double sided plastic 'afro' style comb which doubles up as a fine tooth comb which comes in real handy to help brush in the 'TBS' shampoo and conditioner before rinsing out all the nasties. This will help find those hard to reach places where the dreaded 'beardruff' may be hiding out of sight, making the task at hand a little sweeter in the process.
COMBING THROUGH YOUR BEARD WILL HELP SHAPE AND STYLE YOUR BEARD!
This might seem like a real obvious pointer, but using a comb will help you find the desired shape and style you're looking for when styling out your beard. (Yes, a true marvel I know!) But the myth that us bearded fellows are often labelled as being 'too lazy to shave' leaves some with the impression that we just jump out of bed and crack on with our day without giving our beards a second thought. Now, any bearded bloke will argue this to be quite the opposite, in fact, grooming in general now becomes a huge part of a bearded mans day to day routine. And styling our beards we do so proudly too!
COMBING YOUR BEARD THROUGHOUT THE DAY WILL HELP THOSE DAY TO DAY NASTIES AT BAY!
If like me, you enjoy a bite to eat on the go you may have found yourself in some rather messy situations. When we first grow out our beards it can take a little time to avoid splashing our chosen grub or beverage of choice in our moustache and newly acquired facial fluff areas. Taking a moment to comb through your beard every now and again throughout the day will help keep any embarrassing incidents from happening. Because let's face it, we would rather our comb catch the tiny piece or cheese or spicy meatball left tangled in out tash' than have people giving us odd looks on the bus as we commute about our day. The real key here is to make everything you eat more manageable. For example, If you're tucking into a Subway sandwich, rather than going right at it (as I probably would!) take a moment to gently tear it into bitesize pieces. And if all else fails, have a handy little wet wipe or napkin at hand to save you the embarrassment of wearing your lunch rather than eating it.
