How to Get the Most Out of Your Beard

Josh Lawson

Some days you want your beard to be as big as it can possibly be. This goes out to the guys who are challenged in the beard department. Like most hair problems, they can be helped in the form of products, a blow dryer, and a round brush. Greg recommends using some Sea Salt Spray or some other products to build up the texture in your hair. To achieve the fullest beard possible, and it's gonna be different for everyone, you'll want to do it right after the shower. This way your hair is free of any chemicals or other products. You might want to use a little less conditioner if you want to style your hair though.

Adding a liberal amount of sea salt spray to your beard will give it a ton of texture. Once your beard is wet, you can already see it looks a little fuller, use a round brush to grab some hair and pull it back up while you're also drying it. This adds a curl and wave to it which makes it look fuller. Under the chin, you'll want to blow your beard away from your neck.

The curl near your cheek line gives a nice contrast to how your cheekbones actually look. At this point, you can take some styling balm and add it to your beard so you have a little more control over it. In moderation, backcombing can add a lot of fullness to your hair, but do it too much and you'll damage it. Backcombing is when you comb your hair in the opposite direction of how it grows. This fluffs it up a little and give it more volume.
