How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Yeard Beard
Growing a yeard beard is pretty simple…just don’t trim your beard for a year. But be sure to take care of it so it looks nice and stays healthy. Here are some tips to take care of your beard during your no-shave year.
1. Make the commitment.
If you’re going to grow the yeard beard, you have to commit to the process. Find a few buddies and turn it into a challenge. At the end of the year, you can have a contest to see whose beard looks best.
2. Wash and condition your beard daily.
One of the most important things you’ll need to do is wash and condition your beard daily to keep it clean and hydrated. Remove dirt and oil with a daily beard wash that promotes growth, and then use a conditioner to soften and hydrate your beard.
3. Trim the lines below your cheekbones.
We like a long beard that still looks defined and well-kept. To give it some definition, use a shaping tool and a razor or trimmer to get clean lines below your cheekbones.
4. Use a beard straightener to style it.
We’re digging the straight, smooth look of these yeard beards. Once you get 4 or 5 inches of growth, use a beard straightener to straighten it out. Let it heat up, then brush in downward strokes. Finish up with a beard elixir to leave your hair feeling soft.
