What’s up guys, it’s your boy Eric Bandholz
back again with Beardbrand. Hope all is going well on the other side of the internet. Want
to do a quick little video on dealing with bad beard days and maybe some tips that you
could have to prevent you from shaving your beautiful face locks off on a day that you
don’t feel good. So we all have bad beard days. Maybe you put too much conditioner in
it, maybe you haven’t showered in a couple of days, maybe you’ve got a couple negative
comments from your friends or your spouse or co-workers or whatever it is, but for whatever
reason you look in the mirror, you look at your beard and like man this beard, just I
want to get rid of it. So first of all that happens to everyone. We all have those days,
I have those days they’ll go in waves and a lot of time they’ll be associated with maybe
down times in our lives. So one of the most important things that we recommend that you
do is well first of all don’t make any decisions while you’re drinking or drunk or depressed.
So to handle that, we ask you to sleep on it. And a good rule of thumb is for every
month you’ve been growing your beard out, sleep on it for those number of days. So if
you’ve grown you beard out for a month give it a day, if you’ve been growing it out six
months give it a week, if you’ve been growing it out for a year give it a couple of weeks.
And that way you make sure that it’s not a spare of the moment kind of deal. Now there’s
nothing wrong with changing up your style wanting to with different look, but do it
because you’re excited about that look, you want to move forward you want a little change,
not because you’re down in the dumps and depressed. The other thing I’d recommend is putting yourself
around positive people. Here in Spokane we’ve got the Spokane Beard and Mustache Club. A
fantastic group of guys they’re super nice also a plug, we’ve got our beard competition
coming up October 5th here in Spokane, hope you guys can make it. But join your local
beard club there’s a couple online communities that I’ve found to be very awesome so go ahead
and like post your photo on beardboard.com is a great one that I like to go to. And then
there’s a few pages on Facebook you can go to, The Society of Bearded Gents, they’re
another good community. Post your photo up there, let other people see it who are positive
and helpful during your time. So posting these photos will get your self-esteem back up and
kind of go from there. So just a couple of quick, easy, small tips. Hope it helps keep
a couple of beards on peoples faces. As always, thanks for watching, thanks for subscribing.
Cheers and beard on.
