There are many ways to make this month a November to remember. Wrap up in a plaid blanket, grab a glass of apple cider and most importantly, pledge your loyalty to No Shave November. Doing the rounds of the internet is the challenge known as Movember, which originated as a campaign for cancer awareness and research in honour of sufferers who lose their hair. As the name suggests, No Shave November means skipping the razor for the month and letting it grow wild and free. And while it's for a good cause, it might also help you discover a new look for yourself.
But it isn't as easy as looking past the mirror for an entire month. In fact, not shaving your beard and moustache might prove to be more effort than actually shaving. How is that so, you ask? Well, in the effort to let it grow, it can end up looking coarse, wiry and shaggy. Since that's an absolute no-no for anyone with facial fuzz out, we'd like to let you know that it is possible to grow one's beard and moustache out healthily, without getting frustrated midday and shaving it all off in the middle. Men, boys and gentlemen, here's how you can make the most of No Shave November (or Movember if you want to keep it short), cultivate a lush face mane and maybe even discover right fit for your facial fuzz. We've got a few grooming tips and products that will come in handy.
7 Grooming Tips And Products For Your Beard And Moustache
To grow a healthy beard and moustache this Movember, follow these tips and grab these products.
1. One Size Doesn't Fit All
Everyone's hair growth isn't the same. You may want a patchy goatee or a long lumberjack beard so adjust those expectations (and keep them real) based on the natural growth of your facial hair.
The Man Company Almond & Thyme Beard Kit includes a beard oil, wash, scissors and comb.
2. Tools Are Important
You may think that you don't need much else than natural hair growth for a healthy beard and mustache but in reality, you do. Trimmers, combs, waxes and conditioners help soften, trim and nourish so that it continues to grow out but healthily.
The Beardo Men Neem Beard & Face Wash has castor oil, aloe vera and menthol to control acne breakouts, fight bateria and provide nourishment.
3. It Isn't All The Same
Think of your beard and moustache as a different extension of your body. As with any other body part, like your face or hair, it needs its own specific products to target its own set of issues. Add them to your grooming kit accordingly.
The Man Company Argan & Geranium Beard Wax softens and strengthens the beard while also promoting its growth and giving it a shine.
4. Keep It Fuss-Free
It's ideal to cut the grooming routine for your facial hair down to the necessary steps of trimming, washing and conditioning. Any more and it tends to get too fussy, which in turn might be completely ignored in the bargain.
The Beardo Moustache Growth Roll has coconut and almond oil for a quick dose of nourishment for your stache even on the go.
5. Comb, Comb, Comb
Don't reserve the comb only for the hair on your head. Beards and moustaches can get tangled and wiry as they growth. A wide-tooth comb will detangle and leave it much smoother.
The Bombay Shaving Company Pocket Comb is a wide-toothed wooden comb that is perfect for beard maintenance and easy to carry in your pocket.
6. Don't Forget To Condition
If you notice your fuzz becoming dry, looking wiry or feeling itchy, a good beard wax or oil can condition it back to health, give it a shiny appearance and smoothen it.
The Beardo Godfather Lite Beard Oil is a lightweight, non-sticky oil with vitamins and aloe vera for fabulous looking facial hair.
7. Cleanse It Too
As you would for your face or hair, beards and moustaches deserve cleaning too, in order to keep it clear of dirt and particles and to keep the skin beneath cleansed too.
The L'Oreal Paris Men Expert 3-in-1 Wash is a multipurpose wash for the face, head and beard to soften it and get rid of flaking.
