Beards are back in style and don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Whether you keep your beard short and cropped or sport a mane that would rival that of a member of ZZ top, you really should learn how to keep your beard neat and well groomed. Personally, I loved my beard grooming kit, but not everyone is ready to add a collection of grooming tools to their possession. That being said, keeping your beard well groomed does affect other’s perception of you and it can also influence the overall health of your beard.

If you’re going to grow a long, thick beard, you need to commit to its long-term care and upkeep. This will entail buying the proper tools and products necessary to keep it trimmed, neat, and conditioned. No one wants to see a face full of split ends! A trimmer, a good conditioner, and a specialized comb are just a few of the minimal necessities for any great beard enthusiast.

Enlisting the help of a professional barber or stylist can be enormously helpful. They can help you to develop beard grooming strategies that are tailored to your hair texture and your facial shape and structure. They can also recommend the useful product that can help you to keep your beard healthy with a nice shine and texture. Aside from using the product, acting on the advice of your stylist, and taking advantage of a good trimmer, there are other steps you can take to keep your beard healthy.

Be sure to wash and comb your beard before attempting any styling whatsoever. You need to do this to prevent tangles, split ends, and general grime from interfering with your grooming process.

Then, shave everything below the inch and a half of your Adam’s apple. Beards that extend too far down the neckline are generally perceived as more unkempt and less hygienic.

After you’ve washed and shaved the excess hair off of your beard, it’s time to trim. Your beard may grow in slightly unevenly. This is okay, and happens to plenty of men. Set your trimmer to your preferred setting and even it out. This should be done every one to two weeks, depending on how fast and how unevenly your beard grows in. You also want to prevent split ends and should trim them as they appear before they get out of hand.

Caring for your beard isn’t hard on its face. It just requires a commitment and a desire to do it.

I think all in all that this trimmer gives you the best value for your money. Not everyone can afford a high-end electric trimmer and a good deal of the inexpensive ones out there don’t work all that well. I couldn’t be any happier with the Wahl trimmer than I am. If you’re on the market for an inexpensive beard trimmer guys, you really can’t go wrong with this. I highly recommend it and hope that it works for you too.
