That time of year is approaching quickly once again… Movember. If you’re a newbie to facial hair, it can be hard to figure out hair growth best practice so you can master the ‘tache in no time. Luckily for you, we’ve got you covered. Just follow our simple tips for achieving the perfect moustache which is guaranteed to make you proud!

Use a Scrub

When you begin growing your moustache, unwanted dead skin cells and bits of food will build up in the hairs. A high quality face scrub such as Jack Black Face Buff will remove all of the dirt and excess oil from the skin by lifting facial hair and soothing the skin beneath. This is particularly useful as your skin will most likely be irritated from the hairs pushing through the skin.

Shampoo and Condition

Facial hair is often dry and coarse, especially when it first starts growing. Beard shampoo will cleanse the hair whilst conditioner will remove the harsh and wiry texture. Bulldog Original 2-in-1 Beard Shampoo and Conditioner will refresh your moustache so you can show off a soft, supple face lace with utmost confidence.

Cut When Dry

Wet hair is more elasticated and can appear longer due to stretching. Avoid trimming your moustache until it’s dry so you don’t end up with it shorter than you hoped for. Once dry, shape to your heart’s content with Tweezerman G.E.A.R. Moustache Scissors and Comb for a well-groomed appearance.

Moustache Wax is your Friend

Once your moustache gets past the stubble stage, you’re going to need to begin styling it just as you do with your hair. Mr Natty Moustache Twizzle Wax is a weightless formula blended with beeswax and natural oils for a perfectly styled ‘tache and cared for skin beneath. It’ll also help the hair to retain its natural moisture to avoid it becoming dry.

Make Sure to Moisturise

After washing your face when your follicles are clear, use a good moisturiser like the Triumph & Disaster Gameface Moisturiser. Containing vitamins and antioxidants, it will quickly absorb into your skin to leave it feeling nourished and hydrated – the perfect environment for hair growth.
