Hello, and greetings, it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all beards and flag-bearer of all beards on digital and digital broadcasting media. I am that beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that beard who tries to make people smile.
My brothers, I hope you’re well and looking after your beards. I want to talk about a very important issue in the world of beards, so here it is.Wooden, plastic or even a brush? This question divides opinion but here I want to offer my opinion and share it from one beard to another.
I am referring to beard combs, a metal comb, a wooden or plastic. Being a beard of 10 years, I initially (*drops his head down in shame *) was poor at maintaining at my beard.
It took an “Ayyaz your beard looks scruffy” for me to take action. How I took action was to wash my beard, the same way I washed my face.
In earlier naivety of beard life, I would put soap in my beard. Hindsight is a beautiful thing, and I was oblivious to the potential damage that it was causing my beard.
The mindset was to make my beard ‘clean’, and I thought this was the way to achieve this, my beard might have been clean, but it lacked the tidiness. I would what I call hand comb my beard, which worked to a point.
When there would be blustery wind, all the hard work of me trying to tidy my beard (with my hand water) would go down the drain, there had to be another way … the beard comb. I started off with the plastic beard comb and all the whole it was a good experience for my beard. Whenever my beard got tangled, which it really did in the early days, the plastic was a real godsend.
My beard was in such a tangle, it would take me literally a good 10 minutes (and a lot of wincing when I pulled on the beard hair) to untangle.A plastic beard comb was rugged, sturdy and reliable, but it lacked the charm and wow factor of the wooden comb.
On the flip side of this, a beard comb was decorative and nice to look at, but there has been combs that I have had where the teeth of the comb have come out, this won’t happen with a plastic comb.For this situation of a tangled beard comb, a fine-toothed comb is needed, you know so it can get into each beard strand.
In conclusion, I want to suggest in my humble opinion is that, in beard maintenance and for getting full benefits of combing your beard, you should use plastic.When you have a tangled beard and wooden, once you have overcome the tangle of beard and the general beard maintenance.
So that brings us to the last example, the beard brush. The brush has it’s benefits, now with the comb, it’s able to untangle the knotted beard, the brush can help the beard balm be applied better across your face. Another argument for the brush is that it helps get food out from your beard, something a comb might not be able to do as it gets into those hard to reach areas.
That ladies and gentle beards, there’s is my reasons for why you need to use these beard products.To conclude, I humbly suggest to use both, (wooden comb and beard brush) rather than one or the other as both have benefits. It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
