With Movember fast approaching, we thought it timely to jot down some pointers to help you grow your mo.
A good mo doesn't just grow on it's own. Good facial hair growth comes down to patience, diet & exercise and proper maintenance. You can read more about this in our our blog on starting your bearded journey.
Once you've got the growth stage down, you'll need to give your mo some attention to keep the hairs at bay (and out of your mouth).
Get your skin looking and feeling good from day dot
Much of the time men overlook the importance of having healthy skin beneath the facial hair. Healthy skin means healthy growth. Our Triumph & Disaster Rock & Roll Face Scrub
is the perfect product to get your skin in good condition when preparing for the mo growth. This can be followed by T&D's Face Cleanser.
You want to scrub off all the dead skin cells, put some moisture back into the healthy cells, and stimulate the hair follicles to give you the best chance of healthy growth.
Wash & Condition
Once the growth starts to come through, you'll benefit from regularly washing and conditioning your facial hair. This will help with the itching at the early growth phase and keep the hair clean and hydrated. Two of our most popular products, Scotch Porter's Beard Wash
and Beard Conditioner
, do the job well!
Oils do wonders
Beard oils condition & hydrate your beard hair, keeping the hair healthy and "fed" as it grows, whilst preventing flakes or dandruff as the beard grows longer. They are also great for treating the skin beneath the beard, lessening itchiness and keeping the skin moisturised & healthy. Beard oils will do the same for your moustache hair.
Wax that Mo
is used to style and control the mo. If you're wanting a handlebar style moustache, you'll want to use moustache wax to keep the long hairs out of your mouth!
We stock an awesome range of good quality moustache waxes - with scents to suit all types of men.
Trimming Your Mo
Before long you'll find your mo is getting quite long and inconveniently present at meal times. Resist the urge to shave and instead look to trim your mo. You can either go down for your regular session at your local Barbers, or invest in some good quality trimming scissors
, moustache comb
and moustache wax
to keep the hairs at bay. Our Beardbrand Beardsman Kit
has all this plus more if you're wanting to make this a real investment.
You only want to give your moustache a trim when it's dry - wet hair is heavy and sits differently than dry hair, so if you cut it when it's dry you'll get a better idea of the length you want.
Combing your facial hair is the best way to tame the hair follicles and train them to grow the right way. So depending on what moustache style you're going for will play a part in how you comb your moustache. Combing is also great way to spread the oils evenly through your moustache. Our Beardbrand Moustache Comb
is the perfect accessory for any moustache growth.
If you follow the above tips, you'll no doubt have a pretty awesome mo!
