Have you ever heard that your beard grows faster in the summer?

Research shows that in fact, your beard grows slowest during the winter. Beard growth increases to its peak during the summertime, July is when your beard reaches its highest growth rate. 

These growth rates correspond to testosterone levels, which are lowest during the winter and peak during the summer.

Growing a mighty winter beard, you better take advantage of the summer to accelerate beard growth. Just like most thing’s timing is everything.

Beard care summer vs winter

In the summertime, you want to wash your beard more frequently (we recommend using our Man Made Beard Shampoo or Sweet lemon beard soap). 

Due to the heat, humidity & sweat, a build of residual salt can damage your beard. 

Turning your awesome beard into a dry, flaky mess.

With the extra washing, you want to use beard oil more often.

This doesn’t mean that during the winter your beard needs less Beard Oil, as a common habit is to turn the heating up. Heaters come on, humidity goes down and you start to dry out. 

Heaters/Radiators are known to dry your skin & hair out.

Another one is hot shower’s, we all love a hot shower after a cold day at work. 

Hot water dries out your skin & hair, drop the temperature to a warm shower to save your skin & beard from drying out.

The reasoning behind this is because when testosterone increases it encourages your beard to grow, little amount of beer with a small intake will spike your testosterone but drink excessively and you'd crash fast. 

Excessive drinking is bad for you on many factors and again killing your testosterone is one of them not to mention excessive drinking will lead to many health problems.

Funny enough due to the hops and malt within your beer there is some science behind the madness as these are great for beard hair growth. 

Other reports mention cleaning your beard with beer will also give you that clean hair shine after rinsing out.

When really you should use a specialised beard shampoo, which will actually do a lot more good for your beard health.
