Best 10 Beard Facts

The London Beard Company has come across many Beard facts. Below is just some of the Best 10 Beard Facts we have decided to listed from Beard Connectors, What makes beard grow, does Minoxidil work?


Beards make you hot in the summer

Myth: Beards make you hot in the summer.


Fact: Beards can actually make you feel COOLER in the summer because it shades your face and acts like an evaporative cooler when you sweat and get a little breeze. In particularly humid climates some guys report the beard makes them uncomfortable, but it is not clear whether shaving it off will help.

To keep your beard smelling great throughout the summer, check out The Mancunian Beard Summer Beard Oil Collection!


Beard requires connectors between the mustache


Myth: A beard requires connectors between the moustache and goatee to look good/complete.


Fact: If you look around, you’ll see lots of guys with missing connectors, but chances are you never really thought “Great beard” if only the connectors were filled in. The truth is that when looking at other people we tend to see the beard as a whole and how it suits the man, not the missing parts. But when looking at ourselves, we focus on what is not perfect. It is a good idea, however, to even things out. If one connector is weak or missing, shave the other to match. Symmetry is much more important than complete fullness.  You could always use some beard oil to try and soften the beard and manipulate hair to increase hair around the connector area.


All parts of the beard should grow at the same rate


Myth: All parts of the beard should grow at the same rate.

Fact: Cheeks often grow in slower than the chin hairs and there is nothing wrong with that. Eventually, the cheeks will catch up and with some trimming/shaping, the beard can look completely full once you’ve reached around 2 or 3 months growth that’s when you can really get your beard oil to work its magic.


Beards are itchy and scratchy


Myth: Beards are itchy and scratchy?


Fact: Most guys have little or no itching. For the ones that do, usually, this passes in a week or two. If it comes back, it is probably related to dry skin or other skin condition, not the beard itself. And once past the stubble phase, most beards get significantly softer to the touch, so scratchiness is no longer an issue. To help with dry skin condition try applying some beard oil.


Beard passport ID issue


Myth: If I grow a beard, I will have problems when travelling because my passport or other ID shows me as shaven.


Fact: Officials see hundreds of photos a day and are trained to look past as superficial as a new beard or different hairstyle.


You shouldn’t have an issue unless you have turned into Chewbacca overnight. The Mancunian Beard Oil might help tame Chewbacca though!


Shaving makes the beard grow back faster


Myth: Shaving makes the beard grow back faster/darker/thicker.


Fact: There is no evidence it does any of these things. It can make the stubble look like it is coming in thicker because of the blunt ends of the hairs when cut reflects light differently. Once your beard has grown back make sure you give it a treat by applying some Mancunian Beard Oils from one of the great beard products uk.


How long till my beard looks complete?


Myth: A beard should look complete in 2 to 3 weeks.


Fact: It takes 2 to 3 months for most guys to have a complete beard. So before month 3 comes along get yourself a Beard Gift Sets UK purchased, as 3 months “GROWS” around fast 🙂


People will not accept me with a beard


Myth: People will not accept me with a beard because most people don’t have beards.


Fact: You are you, and as long as you respect the integrity of others, what you do is your business. When one is centred in his core, his life will turn out as he wants it. Don’t let others put you down, most likely they are only jealous that they cant grow a  beard and enjoy applying some of the great beard oils that are available on the marker!


Best place to trim beard is at the barbers


Myth: A barber is the best place to get your beard trimmed.


Fact: More often than not, a barber will over-trim or re-style your beard especially if you are not very clear about what you want. It is generally better to get your own beard trimmer and trim it a little bit at a time until you reach the desired shape and length. Some barbers stock some great beard oils you can sample after your trim.


Does Minoxidil make beard permanently denser?


Myth: There are products, such as Minoxidil and others, that will make your beard permanently denser, give you full coverage, or kick-start a budding beard on a teenager.


Fact: Few products have demonstrated any improvement in beard growth. Minoxidil has demonstrated some success, but most report that the gains are lost when the usage stops.


Make sure you don’t spill the whole bottle of Minoxidil on your beard or you could turn into a grizzly bear overnight and even the best beard oil on the market will not dam that beast of a beard lol!
