Sometimes, Beardsmen, you just want to switch it up. We know how it is. You get bored of the same old look and you just want to see something different in the mirror. If only we could sprout a glorious mane overnight to achieve that new look. Alas, we cannot as there is no beard miracle growth formula out there and, unless you manage to find yourself a genie, you’re just going to have to grow one the old fashioned way.
But, that doesn’t mean it’s going to take months on end to achieve that rugged, lumberjack look. Nay, Kingsmen, you can do it in just 60 days with the right routine. What you’ll get is a 2 month beard that delivers. Let’s jump in and take a look.
2 Month Beard Tools
The first thing we need to do is make sure we’ve got the right tools for the job. In order to have the best shot at growing a magnificent beard, you need to make sure you’re using products and tools that are specifically designed to pamper those whiskers. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Beard wash
- Beard conditioner
- Beard oil
- Beard balm
- Beard butter
- Beard brush
Kingsmen, I know that the temptation to grab that bar soap sitting on your shower ledge is a strong one but you have got to resist. Normal bar soap, regular shampoo and body wash all have harsh detergents that are going to strip the good stuff from your mane. It’s harsh. It’s like putting hot sauce on a cupcake. You’re going to destroy the cupcake! Instead, you need beard wash which is a much gentler soap designed specifically for the hairs on your face and the skin underneath.
Beard conditioner restores the hydration lost in the washing process, helps to detangle your hair and keeps it soft throughout the day. A hydrated beard is a happy beard and a happy beard is going to grow faster and fuller.
Beard oil gives your whiskers a bit of protection and another layer of moisture. This is a crucial step that should be performed every day, no matter the length of your mane. Make sure to choose one that is natural and filled with ingredients that will protect and moisturize your beard such as almond oil and jojoba oil.
Beard balm is not just for styling. You can also protect your beard with a good beard balm and deliver nutrients that will help your beard grow. Your balm will also help to shape your beard during those awkward days between stubble and magnificence. Beard balm should have bees wax for hold and moisturizing ingredients like cocoa butter and shea butter.
Often mistaken as the same thing as balm, beard butter is a different product. It can help you to tame your flyaways and tuck in some unruly whiskers, but it doesn’t have the hold that beard balm does. It does, however, pack a powerful punch when it comes to moisture and conditioning. You need an all-natural beard butter with jojoba or shea.
A good beard brush is going to help you exfoliate the skin under your beard and free your follicles from any blockage or build-up that might exist. This is a crucial step that should be performed daily to stimulate growth. A wooden handled beard brush is your best bet, as it won’t catch or tug at your whiskers.
2 Month Beard Steps
Now that we have our tools ready, let’s look at the steps to a magnificent beard in just two months.
- Use beard oil daily
- Wash with warm water
- Only wash a few times per week
- Use beard wash instead of other soaps
- Always follow up a wash with beard conditioner
- Brush daily
- Deep condition with beard butter
- Stay hydrated
Use Beard Oil Daily
Never skip this step! If you think of your beard as a living thing that needs to be fed, then beard oil is its daily feast. It’s packed full of nutrients that are going to keep your beard growing, looking and feeling healthy and moisturized. Always apply beard oil to a damp beard, especially after you get out of the shower or wash your beard.
Wash With Warm Water
The temptation to step into a piping hot shower to wash your beard is a strong one, especially in the colder months, but excessively hot water can actually do damage to your beard and the skin underneath it. Instead, use lukewarm water to wash your beard and your face to keep those follicles happy and growing.
Only Wash A Few Times Per Week
You do not need to wash your beard every day unless you work in a really dirty job. Wash your beard when you feel it needs to be washed: when it is dirty or dusty or you’re detecting a product build-up. Washing too often can dry it out and damage those whiskers, so stick to two or three times per week.
Use Beard Wash Instead of Other Soaps
We touched on this above but it’s worth saying twice. Do not wash your beard or face with regular shampoo, bar soap or shower gel, despite how convenient it might be. What will result is a dry, brittle beard with lots of breakage and an unwillingness to grow evenly. Beard wash, on the other hand, is going to keep those whiskers cooperating.
Always Follow Up With Beard Conditioner
The softer your beard is, the more resistant to breakage and split ends it will be and beard conditioner is what is going to keep it soft. This quick extra step after washing delivers a powerful punch when it comes to growth and the health of your mane.
A daily brush of the old whiskers is going to gently loosen dirt, dead skin and product build-up that could be blocking your follicles from growing properly.
Deep Condition With Beard Butter
Even when we use oil every day and we’re washing the right way and following up with beard conditioner, our beards can still dry out. In the colder months when we’re constantly exposed to central heating and recirculated air, a beard can truly suffer. If you live in a dry climate or work in a dry environment, you might find that some days your beard feels like it needs a little hydration boost. So, grab yourself a good, natural beard butter and apply it just before bed. It’s going to soak into your whiskers overnight, giving it a deep conditioning treatment that will kick start a healthy beard once again.
The best part about this step is that it’s good for every part of your body and mind. Drink eight glasses of water per day, and make sure you’re hydrated from within just as much as you are from the outside. Your beard will thank you.
A Beard in Two Months
Your results from following these tips will vary and some beardsman may still find their beard is patchy but each of the pointers above is going to help your beard appear more full. These steps are your best bet at achieving the two month beard.
