6 Steps To An Epic Beard

Growing an epic beard is serious business. But it doesn't have to be so hard. As much as we wish you a successful growth, it's our job to help you achieve that epic beard.  

Whether growing an epic beard is something you’ve always wanted to do for yourself, or if you just want to be the head turner in the room (for both the guys and the gals), these steps can serve as your must-do list in accomplishing that!

Your beard deserves to be looked after with the best tools you can find. For this epic beard journey, here’s what you need:

Here are six steps to make your epic beard journey easier for you:

Step 1: Just let it grow

This is probably the easiest step of the six. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch your beard grow in all its glory. 

I’m just kidding. As a man yourself, you definitely know that this isn’t the easiest part. This is the itchiest part.

When growing out your beard, the sharp edge of each hair scratches against its follicle. Each sharp edge of hair, which is a result of shaving, causes the itchiness. BUT you actually don’t have to suffer this much on this level of growth. Soften the hairs and restore moisture into your skin with our beard oil! You can thank us later.

But even so, you might still have the urge to shave off your beard. Maybe you start to think to yourself that it’s a lot of work. Of course it is. But you already know that. And for sure, you know that it’s worth it. Just remember that the only way out of this is through (and with our beard oil, of course).

Step 2: Stay hydrated

It's already a given that as human beings, staying hydrated is the bare minimum to self-care. Unsurprisingly, not everyone does a good job at it. So if you’re planning to grow your beard, don't be one of those people.

Staying hydrated is important for healthy beard growth. It helps distribute the nutrients around your body, in this case, to your skin. As a result, healthy skin means a healthy beard. So don’t forget to drink your 8 glasses of water today!

Step 3: Use the right products

Drinking the recommended amount of water a day is just as important as what you put on your beard to take care of it. This means that maintaining your beard the right way requires the right products. 

If you’re thinking that your body wash will do the job, you’re wrong. You'd be doing more harm than good, especially to your hair follicles. We recommend the Brada Beard Shampoo once or twice a week to get rid of impurities your beard is bound to build up. After showering, moisturize with a Brada Beard Oil of your choice!

Don’t settle for less. You know your beard deserves better.

Step 4: Find the right barber

Thanks to the revival of the beard trend by our bearded hipster brothers, services for beards have become more accessible and common over the years. It's easier to find a barber now who knows what he's doing than it was a couple of years ago. 

By doing your research and asking around, you can track down the barber of your dreams - someone who understands your personal style and supports you on your journey to an epic beard (Personal note: in Lisbon, I highly recommend Barberhood!).

Step 5: Shape your beard

Or not. This is the fun part. This is the part where you can play around and experiment which looks you want to go for. 

The world is your oyster. You could sport the "straight bearded" look (which you can accomplish with our  Brada Beard Wax, Kent Pocket Comb), or the "wild-modern bearded" look (a bit of oil and you’re good to gol!).

Step 6: Flaunt that epic beard

When you get to this part, then congratulations! You are a changed man--or even the envy of men. Now you can be the head turner when you walk in the room. And remember to walk tall and proud with your new look. With all your hard work, you deserve it.

And as always, may the Beard be with you!
