Beards are fickle things. As humans, we have evolved from a common ancestor to the ape, so it should be of little surprise that some of the evolutionary traits still linger. Especially when you consider how little time, in the grand scheme of life and this planet, that we’ve actually been ‘modern.’ Facial hair is among one of those lasting traits that are slowly disappearing for some men of new generations, while others, depending on ancestry and lifestyle, are still feeling the effects of being a once fur-covered being.
You might be wondering what I mean by, ‘Can you handlebar?’ Well, upon making up my mind that I would indeed work hard to tame this whacky beard, I reached out to the folks at Can You Handlebar for help and they sent me their Advanced Kit featuring their Wisdom scent (woodsy aroma with cedar, lemon and spruce). Their Advanced Kit includes a bottle of beard oil (for conditioning), beard balm (for conditioning and styling), beard oil brush, two moustache waxes (primary and secondary), as well as a red handkerchief.
Stimulating the hair follicles is as important as hygiene. Imagine spending your days with little to no exercise… What happens to your muscles? You lose them, right? Well, the same goes for hair. If you ignore combing your beard, it isn’t only the style and look that will suffer, it will be your growth as well, which is why CYH’s beard oil brush is so handy (made of wood and horsehair). All in all, I found Can You Handlebar’s products to be pleasant to work with, and affective at managing my beard as well as promoting growth. Not only does their wisdom scents smell amazing, they actually work. After a few short weeks of trialing their kit, my beard looks healthier, shinier, thicker, and is starting to come together, better than ever before.
