Growing a beard can be an expression of freedom, but it’s also a commitment. Beards don’t take care of themselves any more than your hair or your lawn. If you want a beard, you’re going to need to know how to grow and care for one.

So when you’ve just past the stubble stage here are a few tips that we are confident you will achieve a luscious beard worthy of mention.

#1 Let it grow 

Wait a few months before trying to shape your beard even if You are planning to keep it short and close to face in the long run. Shaping and trimming beards too early could lead to mistakes that could take weeks or months to fix. Let it go wild first and once you have an inch or an inch and a half , start to shape it.

#2 Keep it moisturised

Use beard oils or even almond oil to moisturise beards especially just under chin at top of your neck.

#3 Detangle it

Use a small brush to brush through beard that can help in the shaping and set angle knots.
