Boar Bristle Beard Brush

Boar Bristle Beard Brush: Far Better Quality Than You’d Expect

Boar Bristle Beard Brush

What’s amusing about having a beard, is that some guys grow their beards like their living in the wilderness. They get caught up in the manly ritual and forget to do what’s natural to maintain it. I love my beard, but hey, I’m not living in woods, chopping down trees and shaving my neckline with a 10-inch knife by a riverbank. Beard grooming isn’t a sign of being less of a man, in fact, the better you take care of your beard the more it’s going to get noticed, and that’s important for those of us looking for a mate. If you ask me, grooming is not a weakness; it’s strength.

The reason I bring this up is that a buddy of mine was over last week who has been growing his beard for over a year now. I try my best not to critique it, but it was a mess. His beard was frazzled and wasn’t helping his chances with the ladies.

He was over visiting the family and while in the kitchen I picked up and began brushing my beard midsentence. I don’t usually keep my beard brushes laying around, but on this particular day, my favorite boar bristle beard brush was just sitting there in the kitchen. The look on his face while I began brushing made think I had something on my face, other than a beard. He tried to tease me about owning a fancy brush just for my beard but quickly trailed off as I said nothing while promptly handing him the brush to try. This was no ordinary brush either, and now that I think about it, it was probably the best beard brush I owned that I could have passed him at that moment. It was the Boar Bristle Beard Brush from Liberty Liberty Premium Grooming Co. It’s one of my favorite things in my beard grooming kit. I love the handle, which is actually somewhat rare in comparison to most boar bristle beard brushes and the size of the brush, in my opinion, is perfect.

His reaction was priceless. His face went from smug and judgmental, to a look that I could only describe as the equivalent of holy shit. He was amazed how fierce the boar bristles moved throughout his beard, and within minutes his beard looked more organized and even softer. There were no words while he was combing his beard either, just this look like “I was wrong, where can I get one” lol.

Why use a Boar Bristle Beard Brush?

Beard brushes are made up of either boar hair, horse hair or are synthetic in construction. There are also brushes that have a mixture or combination of any of the three. However, the standard for beard brushes starts at the top with boar hair.

Beard Grooming Kit

7 Beard Grooming Kits Every Man Would Love

Beard Grooming Kit

Luxury Beard Grooming Kit

The addition of a Beard Grooming Kit is not only a fast track way of upping your beard game, but can be one of the more affordable ways of getting a collection of premium products and goods. A beard grooming kit is a bundle of high-quality items that any guy would love to buy for themselves or receive as a gift. For those growing a beard for the first time or looking for a gift for a loved one or friend, the beard kit takes the pressure off buying the wrong item; as it lumps together a number of awesome tools and styling products like a fruit basket, but for guys. Wow? Did I just describe a manly box of awesome beard grooming kit items to a fruit basket? I really could have thought of a better analogy, but truthfully, it works.

Obviously, a beard grooming kit doesn’t include a basket; the kit usually revolves around a cool, stylish wooden box that can be used to keep all the new grooming care items together. These boxes, or kits, come in a wide range of designs, and most of the time the box itself is as great as the items in it.

For years, I had a bad habit of leaving my beard grooming products scattered around our washroom. There’s a window ledge in the en-suite bathroom of our bedroom where I would leave brushes, balms, and scissors laying about. My wife hated it, as it would be the first thing one would see when you walked into the bathroom. I always stood my ground but secretly hated having all my stuff so unorganized. So, last year when I received a beard kit from my wife for Christmas, she said the gift comes with a project. She asked me to add a couple of small shelves in our washroom to free up and organize my beard stuff. It took no time at all and gave me a little corner of the washroom all for my stuff, including my kickass beard grooming kit.

What’s in a Beard Grooming Kit?

Beard Grooming KitsMost beard kits include a new brush or wooden comb, some creams such as a beard balm or oil along with maybe some grooming tools like scissors. When looking for a beard kit, try not to be fooled by the box sets with too many things. Ideally, you’re after a beard grooming kit with four to five items. In fact, sometimes less is more, as you get more quality beard items rather than a bunch of stuff you won’t use.

When picking a beard grooming kit, always read the reviews and don’t get fooled by brands with a heavy design. Branding in this industry plays a significant role in salesmanship. What you’re really after are reviews of the items by people who have purchased them before. Amazon is perfect for this.

If you’re concerned about the price, add up the cost of all the items individually in the beard grooming kit then factor in the expense of the box it comes in. Most of the time you’re going to get a deal by buying things as a group, but sometimes the box is a lot more than what it’s worth.

6 Wooden Beard Comb Designs With Style

The Wooden Beard Comb

There’s something cool about having a stylish wooden beard comb that’s hard to put into words. Aside from that obvious satisfying feeling of running it through your beard or the collectible appeal of having yet another elegant men’s grooming product in your possession, there’s a calming feeling, an almost self-medicating aspect to combing your beard. While everyone else reaches for their iPhone or starts puffing on an ECIG, you can take a relaxing moment and zone out from the chaotic world.

Combing your beard, in the right context, can also be viewed as very sexy. You know, that casual moment you break out your comb and stroke your beard when you know the girl across the pub is checking you out. She’s noticing your manly beard and sees that you take the time to groom it. Your high-quality wooden bead comb says a lot about you. You show dedication to your craft. You show you can take excellent care of the things that you’re interested in, and you won’t settle for crappy products.

You may think I’m laying it on thick, but I’m not. Women – and Men – notice all kinds of things you wouldn’t usually think about. Your shoes for example. I remember an old girlfriend told me that she would notice and Man’s smile, then look for a wedding ring right before checking to see the condition of a guy’s shoes. Her logic was that if he took care of his feet, the part of the body that we all use the most, then he was well-kept and clean. He was a “keeper.” Women care about a man being clean, and for some reason, men have trouble remembering that. A scruffy, unkempt beard is not helping your cause. Sure, it’s cool you have a beard, but your Sex appeal goes through the roof if you can present your beard in an impeccable stylish manner.

Mustache Pacifiers: Your Kid is Awesome

moustache pacifier

Holy crap how am I just learning about Mustache and Beard Pacifiers now? Seriously, these are awesome!

What’s funny is the fact I actually made a fake mustache and eyebrows for my son when he was only a couple months old. I used a sharpie and made them out of paper. We took photos of my son sporting the thick black eyebrows and mustache and posted them on Facebook. The relatives didn’t think they we’re all that hilarious, but to a couple of sleep-deprived new parents, we laughed so hard tears rolled down our faces.
