Genetics & Growing Time

Almost anyone with the right set of hormones can grow a beard. Unfortunately, not all beards are created equal because often, your genetics has a lot to do with it. Although options for beard implants are there, these can get expensive. Instead, consider your style based on the kind of growth you have. To do that, you’ll need to give your beard at least 2-3 months to grow to get a good idea what kind of beard you have. If you’ve been shaving regularly and have just started to grow them out, expect your skin to feel itchy, some areas to look patchy, and possibly dry out. You’ll need to adjust and apply moisturizer to lessen that scratchy feeling. 

 American Crew Precision Shave Gel

Does your skin feel itchy after a shave? You may need an American Crew Precision Shave Gel, ₱ 1,620, a non-foaming gel designed for an accurate shave for normal or thin beard types. It provides a definitive, quick, and clean shave, soothes skin and has aloe vera that helps alleviate irritation during shaving.

Moisturize Your Whiskers and Bristles

American Crew Beard Serum

Aside from your face, your bristles can get wiry and dry. To encourage healthy growth, make sure to keep it moisturized. Try an oil based moisturizer like American Crew Beard Serum,  P,1300, specially designed for beard care, with beneficial oils that instantly condition and keep the beard soft and well-groomed. Best of all, it’s lightweight, fast-absorbing, and a little goes a long way, so you can say good-bye to nasty beard residue. 

Keep It Clean 

One surefire way to get a facial rash is to leave flecks of food and dirt on your beard. Beards can really soak up some unwanted grime, so for any occasion, make sure you have on hand a leave-in cleanser. Try American Crew Beard Foam Cleanser, P1,300. We like it because it’s foam based making for a quick clean up of your whiskers with no water needed. Feel refreshed as it removes daily residue and softens your beard too!

Look for Multi-benefit Styling Products

American Crew Beard Balm

There’s no point in putting all that effort into growing that great beard if you’re not going to style it right. The best way to style a beard is with a balm. Try American Crew Beard Balm, P1,300, that conditions and tames for flexible styling. Plus, it’s got almond oil and Shea butter to make sure your strands have that healthy shine so it grows healthy without irritating the skin underneath.*

*Although these products are designed for skin care, for those with skin sensitivities, consult with your dermatologist to ensure the products you use are appropriate for your skin type.  

Trim, Shape & Cut

JRL FreshFade 1040 Professional Clipper

There's a saying we hear a lot in the hair care industry: great hair, or in this case a beard, doesn’t happen by chance, it’s by appointment. But if you're still not comfortable going to the barbershop or simply don’t have regular access to one, you may need to step in and give yourself a good trim. Shaving seems simple enough, but shaping a beard takes some skill and a sharp set of tools. Try JRL FreshFade 1040 Professional Clipper, P7,800 (or 3 payments of 2,600.00 with 0% interest when you check out with Atome)! With its lightweight design and rust-free, long-lasting, titanium blades, plus a patented stay-cool technology, you can protect your skin while providing a precise trim.

Styling your facial hair takes time and planning but if done right (with managed expectations), you can grow a great beard that works for you. For more on beard grooming head over to our special collection on here.
