Full Beard Tips

So, you’ve heard the call of the wild, the lure of the Arctic tundra, or you’ve just looked in the mirror and been pained by the naked, bare look of your jowls at the moment. Whatever the reason, you’ve decided that a lush full beard is right for you. And you’re right! Let’s look at how to turn that face into a joyously, ruggedly bearded vision.

Growing a full beard
You may be wondering what the requirements are for growing a beard. Well, look in the mirror. Are you a man? If no, then well, no, you can’t grow a beard. Otherwise, congratulations! But, in all seriousness, there are some conditions that’ll make it easier to grow the beard that you deserve. So, on to the difficult work!

First, you’ll need to just let that beard go for a while, long enough to get strange, sideways glances from your neighbors or colleagues. Yes, if you can let it just run freely for a month or two, you’ll be on the right track. And no touching up, trimming or hedging; you’re trying to see what you’ll be dealing with, from your neck up to your hairline. Genetics will play a big part here, because your natural beard will be whatever you inherited from your father, and on down the line. So, step one is to see exactly what you’re dealing with, and that means throwing that razor far away (but not too far…you’ll need it soon!) for at least a month.

Getting a full beard
So, you’ve grown out a ragged, unkempt mane of facial hair. That’s definitely down the road to boundedness. But isn’t quite a true full beard. You should see by now (assuming you’ve actually done the hard work of what parts of your face grow quicker than others, which parts are patchy or sparse, basically, you know what the situation is to work with. The next step is to turn those raw materials into an actual beard. And that means: turning to a professional!

You may think that you know what a full beard looks like. And you’d be right. But a good barber will be able to show exactly how much shaving along the cheekbones you should be doing, how short you should be trimming your beard to keep all of the patchy stragglers along for the ride, basically what needs to be done to keep your full beard running on all cylinders.

Maintaining a full beard
So you’ve let your face do its thing for as long as you could take it, went to a professional, and are ready to enjoy the fruits of your labors? Well, the first port of call will be to find a good trimmer. Your trimmer is really your full beard’s secret weapon: your beard will only look as long and full as the shortest, sparsest parts, so keeping everything even and neat with a trimmer will keep that beard looking full and lush.

While you’re out shopping for beard supplies, you should probably think about getting some beauty products. No, you don’t need to get a shade of lip gloss that matches your burly beard. Beard shampoos, moisturizers and beard oils are important. After all, you’re trying to bring attention to that beauty of a full beard, right? So, keeping it as soft, smooth and stroke-able as possible is just as important as trimming and grooming and there’s nothing left but to enjoy the benefits of that manly, full beard. Just don’t let anyone see you appreciating it in every window you walk by!

Shampoo is one of the essential hair products in your bathroom, which is used for the removal of oils, dirt, skin particles, etc. There are many useful steps that help you kids develop a heath hair care habit when they are ready to start shampooing.
1. Don’t use cold or hot water. Warm water is best for using shampoo.
2. Control the amount of the shampoo. It’s not “the more, the better”. Just pours a quarter-size shampoo in the hand.
3. Guide your kids to wash the scalp rather than the hair. Washing the hair always results in dull and coarse.
4. Rinsing shampoo with warm water as well.
5. Tell your kids don’t rub the hair with a towel that will damage hair, just cover it and let it absorb the water naturally.
6. Don’t hard pull the comb through the hair, because it can pull out hair.
7. For most babies, washing hair once or twice a week is enough, while three times a week is best for toddlers. Preschool boys or girls need more times as their hair gets longer. They can wash hair every day, but do not take hair care products frequently. Not use the shampoo at the beginning of the shower as it could irritate sensitive skin.

More Tips:
Dermatologists give more tips to help kids develop healthy hair care habits.

2. Avoid harsh cleansers and poor-quality hair products as they have the negative impact on children’s hair growth. For kids with oily hair, shampoo is enough and works best. Try conditioner if your kids with dry hair.
4. Don’t forget to wear a hat to protect hair from the sun when outdoors.
5. Don’t always use heat on the hair, it can damage the hair root.
6. Braids and ponytails are popular hairstyles for most girls, try to loose hair and use covered rubber bands.

8. Get hair appropriate hairstyle. Mom or Dad starts looking for various styling methods to make the child’s look best. Keep in mind, pick out the right hairstyle first.

The Difference between Baby Shampoo and Regular
As compared with baby shampoo, adult shampoos come with more chemicals called anionics that can create the rich lather. Of course, most people like the feeling. They can be drying. Therefore, more and more kids hair care products contain it now. They are not harmful. They avoid getting any shampoo in kids’ eyes.


Why My Husband Choose Panasonic ES-LT41-K

Fast Shave. Anytime, Anywhere.

The Panasonic’s Triple Action Cutting System is designed to make it easy to trim short stubble or long hairs with the same level of quality. And the optimized foil helps guide the trimmer across your face for a clean shave. And for trimming your beard, mustache, goatee, or sideburns, the Precision Long Hair Trimmer and adjustable settings get the job done.


I’ve been using it for about a month, and it seems like the quality of shave keeps getting better and better. I don’t know if that’s because I’m getting better as using this thing, or my facial hair is cooperating more. Maybe it’s both. But I’ve been able to get a fast shave, anytime, anywhere. The Panasonic ES-LT41-K Men’s 3-Blade works fine for dry shaving and trimming. But you can also shave with it in the shower because the body is fully-sealed to keep water out.

Smoother Skin

I had a big problem with razor burn on my neck when I was using a straight-edge blade and shaving cream. But that’s a distant memory since I started using the Panasonic ES-LT41-K Men’s 3-Blade. My razor burn actually cleared up in about a week since I started shaving this way. I thought it might be from the aftershave lotion I’ve been using, but I discontinued that too, and my razor burn still hasn’t come back.

Ready for Service

I don’t like cluttering up my bathroom with stuff plugged into the outlets, so I’ve only charged this every couple of days. And it’s worked well. The nickel-metal hydride battery holds a charge well, and the LED indicator makes it easy to know if I should plug it in for a charge, or if I can get another day or two out of it before it needs to be charged. I’ve used the razor on the car on the way to the job site too. And it’s great. It only takes a few passes to get my goatee the way I want it. And the times I’ve gone with the smooth, baby-face look, it still worked well for cutting close to the skin and helping me get a clean shave, although some people have said it has a hard time comparing to a razor blade and shaving cream.

I landed a bunch of contracts for jobs this week, after some tense negotiations with developers. And I have to wonder if it was from looking a little more like the part of a contract manager, rather than a grisly construction worker.
