The beginning of the year is a great way to reflect on what you’ve done in the past 365 days and an opportunity to create new goals for yourself for the next 12 months.
While most people typically set fitness-based goals for themselves, we’re going to focus on beard-related resolutions we hope makes your beard and yourself better throughout 2022.
Remember, it’s always best to set realistic goals. It’s one thing to shoot for the moon and set incredibly difficult objectives that look great on paper, but at the end of the day these resolutions are for you.
If you really want to make improvements to your beard and yourself, be reasonable with your goals.
With that being said, here are a few resolutions you could adopt this year. Some suggestions are no-brainers and some are silly, but have fun with whichever one you choose to do.
Be Better About Taking Care of Your Beard
We know that many of you do a great job keeping good care of your beard on a regular basis, but there are some folks that still sporadically wash, condition or oil their beard.
You spent months and years growing out your beard, so it’s only right to take care of it. Yes, it takes time an effort to shampoo and condition your beard, but it’s worth it because it only prolongs the life of your facial hair.
Our beard shampoo is formulated to clean your beard without excessively stripping it of its natural oils. Additionally, our beard conditioner softens and hydrates your beard, which makes it strong and less prone to breaking or developing split ends.
Depending on your occupation, lifestyle and beard type, you may need to wash and condition your beard every day or every two or three days.
Taking care of your beard doesn’t stop and washing and conditioning. You also have to be good about trimming your beard.
We have an entire blog post dedicated to why you should trim your beard on a regular basis, but the gist is trimming your beard gets rid of split ends and to make your beard look fuller.
Check Out / Join a Beard Community
If you’re the only person in your friend group that has a beard or you want to meet other dudes with equally impressive manes, then maybe you should consider joining a beard community or club.
There are a lot of beard groups that you can join, and that isn’t an understatement. There’s the Bearded Villains, arguably the largest organization in the world, literally. There’s chapters in nearly every country.
There’s also the Bearded Rebellion Beard Club and Beard Team USA, the latter of which has long list of beard clubs in the United States.
Many of these organizations are philanthropic and support causes that are near and dear to them, so check out the clubs that interest you. And if there isn’t one that you totally align with, start one of your own.
Do a Hard Reset and… SHAVE OFF YOUR BEARD AND START OVER
Some people might call this resolution extreme and others might call this a challenge. If you were able to grow out a majestic beard, why not do it over again?
I know it makes more sense to keep the beard that you have and trim it to the length of your liking, but where’s the excitement in that?
Sure, it took you months and years to grow out your beard to where you like it, but wouldn’t be more interesting if you made it your mission to shave it all off and get back to where you were before?
