That’s why, for the month of November, John will using his years of expertise in the grooming industry to answer common grooming questions. Read more below and keep up to speed with the Mankind blog for future instalments.
Every time I’ve grown out my beard, it’s been patchy and straggly-looking, but I’ve decided to give it a proper go again. How do I make it look good?
Growing a beard is about the three Ps: Prepare, Persevere, and be Patient! Every man’s beard grows differently – in direction, area, length, speed. (Stop looking at your mate’s chins to compare, and focus on making yours the best it can be!). And yes, you may notice there are areas on your face where the hair doesn’t grow as evenly as you’d like. So, preparation is key here – a healthy beard grows from healthy skin, so start each morning with the House 99 Get Groomed Purifying Beard Scrub to remove any dead skin cells and excess oil that can build up and obstruct hair growth.
