AERATING YOUR BEARD FOR MAXIMUM GROWTH
Form follows function, as the saying goes…and we’ve become so distracted from this most basic principle, that consumer confusion is high in nearly all marketplaces. Much is the case within the beard enhancement industry, where a nonsensical debate is always afoot in some realm or the other. Case in point; Should I use a beard brush or comb?
A SMALL TEST
Next time you get a chance, ask any bearded man how he prefers to groom his beard, and he’ll most likely tell you he uses either a natural hair (boar) brush or a comb of some kind (hopefully an anti-static natural horn style). In astonishingly rare cases, he’ll say he uses both devices in a specific protocol, one before the other, in order to maximize his beard grooming results. When I hear that from one of our customers, I know the dude has been paying attention in class…he gets it!
LET’S CLEAR THE SLATE
Now before I get into the meat of this article, let me ask that you do one thing; forget and let go of your feeling of importance for what “brand” of brush or comb you just bought (or already own), it’s totally irrelevant. The only thing that matters from here on out is that form follows function…remember that.
Oh, and I’ll also begin with the presupposition that if you’ve found your way here to the LEGENDS BEARD site, you have every intention of growing your beard to its maximum glory. Would I be right to assume that? Too late…I already did.
THE PROPER BEARD GROOMING PROTOCOL
Okay, so we’ve completed our morning shower routine, which consists of six days using a pH balanced (5.4pH) conditioner wash and the seventh day using a full cleansing wash to remove environmental build-up from our beard. We’ve “pat dried” our beard with our towel, and are moving to the no-heat low force blow dry, where we’ll brush and dry gently in a downward-centric motion. If you remember, we learned this advanced “beard training” method in a previous article, but in case you haven’t read it yet…you can find it here. How to comb and brush your beard
Moving on to our “post shower” beard grooming routine, we find ourselves standing in front of the mirror, with what should be a barely damp semi-soft beard. This next part is very important, so don’t move on until you’ve completed the task: you need to thoroughly spritz your beard with the LEGENDS “SECRET WEAPON” Proprietary Hydrolate!
After you’ve spritzed your beard, the first thing you need to do is gently comb through the beard, which will circulate the Hydrolate deep into the hair and down to the skin. Combing with an anti-static oxhorn beard comb will also fully aerate your beard, as well as separate and straighten the hair which readies it for the next stage. Once again…remember…NEVER COMB A DRY BEARD!
Once you’ve hydrated and aerated your beard and gently combed it out, let the “SECRET WEAPON” absorb into your beard for about five (5) minutes.
After your “SECRET WEAPON” is absorbed, it’s time for our beard oil application and final grooming. For this stage, use the LEGENDS BEARD oil of your choice (most likely POSEIDON Beard Growth Oil), and follow the volume instructions on the bottle.
The final stage of the beard grooming process is to finish dialing in your beard with a boar hair beard brush. At this point, if you’ve followed the previous steps to a “T”, then you’ve perfectly set-up your beard for a full day of maximum showmanship. Give yourself a pat on the back!
DID YOU SEE WHAT I JUST DID THERE?
I figured instead of just telling you about the importance of aerating your beard, I would simply guide you through a dynamic and results-producing protocol, that will indeed benefit you every single day. You see, through the beauty of enlightened process and simple repetition, you just learned THE MOST EFFECTIVE regimen for growing and maintaining a LEGENDARY BEARD…isn’t that cool!
And although you weren’t aware of it, I also subconsciously exposed you to the innovative concept I call “oil-locking”, which is the ultimate key for beard growth mastery. To learn more about this revolutionary new technique for maximum beard growth called “oil-locking”.
Aerating your beard the right way is absolutely critical in your long term beard growth success strategy. Combs aerate, straighten and unbind beard hair, while boar brushes tighten and reorganize beard flow with a delicate touch. Allowing the maximum of both oxygen and nutrient/Hydrolate to reach the hair follicle through aeration, and then through our innovative process called “oil-locking”, you’ve just guaranteed that your beard receives the most potent hair growth protocol known to man. So, here is the beard growth daily preparation protocol once again, step-by-step…
DAILY BEARD CARE ROUTINE
- Follow your morning shower routine
- Then the post-shower pat and dry
- Use your SECRET WEAPON Pure Hydrolate to maximize hair volume
