CEO of Scotch Porter, Calvin Quallis was comfortable at his desk job just over a year ago, but left that community behind to set out and create one of today’s leading grooming lines that possess natural ingredients which promote healthy and effective results all while helping men feel confident and accomplished. And with the beard movement still going strong for a couple years now, there are still key things to know and understand when you begin the bearded life (or have already been inducted). Here Calvin shares with us some key tips on keeping your beard game strong!
HOW TO WASH YOUR BEARD
You should only wash your beard with a sulfate-free shampoo or beard wash once per week. Frequent washing of your beard and/or washing your beard with a shampoo or wash that contains sulfates will only rob your beard of its natural beneficial oils and leave you with a dull, dry and unmanageable beard. In place of shampooing so often, conditioner wash your beard up to three times per week. Your beard will thank you for it
TRIMMING YOUR BEARD
I always suggest letting a trained professional trim and shape your beard, especially if your goal is to grow a thick, healthy beard. A really good barber can will help with ridding the beard of split ends – split ends cause breakage and stunt beard growth.
Conditioning your beard is crucial to its health and manageability. A great conditioner prevents damage and excessive shedding, which stunts beard growth. It also imparts moisture, which prevents dry, brittle and frizzy beard hair. Last, a great beard conditioner adds shine and luster to the beard, leaving you with a smooth, silky, great looking beard.
Combing and brushing the beard should be a part of every bearded guys grooming regiment. Combing and brushing the beard helps with directing the growth of your facial hair – it trains your hair to grow in the direction that you like, and leaves you with a more polished, manageable looking beard. I recommend combing and brushing the hair down and center.
I also recommend using a Boar’s hair brush and good quality acetate comb. The bristles from a boar’s hair brush leave you with a shinier looking beard, as the bristles react to the skin and beards natural oils. A good quality acetate comb will glide through the hair without much pulling and tugging. Pulling and tugging causes breakage and excessive shedding.
