The fall chill has turned into the winter freeze, so it’s time to think of all things warm and fuzzy. Kids are putting on their flannel pajamas, women are getting into their snuggies, and men are growing out their beards. Ladies, your man’s beard can be a curse or a blessing for you. If you don’t mind him pressing his itchy, wooly face against yours, let him handle it alone. However, if you prefer cozying up to softer stubble, get him these products to maintain his facial hair through the holidays and all year round.

The first step in growing and maintaining a healthy beard is making sure it’s regularly cleaned. Some men question what product to use for this. Your man isn’t going to want to use your facial cleanser, so I suggest you get him Mr. Natty Face Forest Soap. Gentle enough to be used daily, FFS is high in antioxidants thanks to olive oil (which also hydrates the skin), has shea butter to protect dry skin, and peppermint oil to give it all a little kick.

Cold Label has teamed up with celebrity barber Faheem Alexander to create “Bully,” their luxurious beard and shave oil. Bully is actually a blend of their classic shave oil and beard oil, both of which contains follicle softening oils that moisturize and condition your skin and beard. This special edition blend helps grow a full beard with a natural shine and a soft touch. Made of only ten natural ingredients, this oil is also perfect for sensitive skin.

Brooklyn Grooming’s line of beard balms is perfect for growing a longer, thicker, coarser beard. Made with organic ingredients, including candelilla wax and shea butter, this balm reintroduces moisture to his beard and seals it in. Think of this beard balm as a styling pomade for his whiskers, holding down fly-aways and leaving them with a healthy sheen.

After all of the washing, and moisturizing, and waxing, his beard maintenance is not complete if he lets it turn into a matted mess. He needs to simply comb it out. He doesn’t have to give it 100 nightly strokes, but he should regularly pass a comb through it. Combing his beard not only removes debris and detangles it, but it also helps redistribute beard oil and balm throughout. For this follicle treatment, I recommend grabbing a groomer from Big Red Beard Combs. At different stages of growth, his beard will need combs of different sizes, so pick up the trio pack and he’ll be well taken care of.
