Springtime is just around the corner, which means flowers will begin to bloom and soon it will be warm enough to go outside in a T-shirt and shorts.
It’s a time for rejuvenation and a fresh start, so we asked local ZeusMan Gregory Matthew Hyde for a few tips on how to wake up your body and facial hair from its winter hibernation with products from Zeus Beard.
Smell Bright and Fresh
Let’s start off with addressing the funk underneath your armpits. Sure, they smell good when you get out of the shower, but what about later in the afternoon?
To avoid any onion patches, Hyde recommends using Zeus’ natural deodorant spray in verbena lime, which provides long-lasting freshness and comfort without drying out your skin.
Our deodorant doesn’t have any harmful ingredients, like parabens, sulfates, aluminum, DEA or mineral oil. All you need is two spritz under each arm and the fast-absorbing spray will have you covered all day.
Get Your Hair Looking Sophisticated
Now that you’re smelling so fresh and so clean, clean, let’s get your head looking right, starting off with your hair.
Hyde likes to use Zeus’ Creme medium-hold pomade to style his hair and get it looking proper. This moisture-rich cream will give your hair a matte finish and it’s great for creating that messy, bedhead look. Just scoop a small amount of pomade into your hands, evenly distribute it through damp hair and style as you please.
And because it’s water-soluble, this pomade is easy to restyle throughout the day and quick to rinse out when your day is over.
If you’re looking for something that’s got a bit more muscle, Hyde recommends using our firm-hold pomade. This water-based product — made with aloe vera, jojoba oil and keratin — will ensure that your hair stays put without damaging it like some oil-based alternatives.
Elevate Your Beard to God-Tier
What’s a great head of hair with a shaggy beard? What is Superman with kryptonite? What’s a grail sneaker with creases and stains?
I think you understand what I’m getting at.
If you’re going to put in the effort to style your hair, it’s only right to give your beard or mustache the same level of attention.
What Hyde likes to do is use Zeus’ beard oil to keep his facial hair healthy and soft. Our product is made with natural ingredients — argan, grape and safflower seed oils and vitamin E — to lock in moisture and keep your hair hydrated, as well as reduce skin irritation and prevent “beardruff.”
He puts a few drops of oil into his hands and massages it into his entire beard. To make sure it is evenly distributed, he uses the Zeus Pocket Beard Brush N73, which features sustainable and natural Tampico fibers.
What is Tampico? It’s a fiber made from a cactus-type plant native to Mexico called ixtle. Its leaves are harvested before fibers are extracted, dried and cut to desired length to form a medium-firm bristle.
While some people stop their beard grooming with a brush, Hyde takes it a step further and uses the Zeus Organic Sandalwood Double-Sided Beard Comb.
Made of organic, hand-polished sandalwood, this comb excels at keeping your facial hair neat.
“You should use this comb when you get out of the shower to get all the tangles out,” Hyde said. “Then you use it again to shape your beard after you put in the oil.”
