A DIFERENÇA ENTRE UM BALM E UM CONDICIONADOR PARA BARBA

Uma dúvida muito comum que surge entre os barbudos é se existe ou não diferença entre um balm e condicionador, já que dois possuem a mesma função: a HIDRATAÇÃO.

Para acabar de vez com essa dúvida criei este post com informações úteis e dicas práticas sobre cada um desses cosméticos e suas principais diferenças.

O que é um balm para barba?

Com o passar dos anos e os avanços tecnológicos viu-se a necessidade de se criar um cosmético mais eficiente e menos impactante como ceras, modeladores, lacas e o famoso gel, quase sempre carregados de muita química e com resultados um tanto quanto artificiais – para não dizer “plastificados” . A pensar na saúde da barba e que pudesse ao mesmo tempo unir o poder da hidratação e conseguir uma modelagem mais natural e saudável. Finalmente, chegamos ao atual balm! “BÁLSAMO”.

Podemos então dizer que o balm tem as seguintes funções:

  • Modelagem natural, sem o aspecto de pelo “RIJO”.
  • Ganho de volume aparente. O balm não faz a barba crescer ou nascer onde não tem, mas dá uma aparência mais cheia.
  • Hidratação moderada

O que é o condicionador para barba?

O condicionador é um cosmético bem mais antigo do que o Balm. Entretanto, quando falamos de condicionadores para barbas, pode haver muita gente que não fazia ideia de que pudesse existir tal cosmético. Mas ele existe e, inclusive, faz toda a diferença na vida dos barbudos.

As principais funções práticas do condicionador para barba são:

  • Hidratação profunda após a lavagem com o seu SHAMPOO PARA BARBA.
  • Desembaraça os fios, até os mais “revoltados”;
  • Maciez, brilho e ação antioxidante.

O balm substitui o condicionador?

Não!  O uso em conjunto de ambos os produtos pode agregar ainda mais saúde e beleza à sua barba. Como vimos no post, há bastante diferença entre a finalidade dos produtos.

Você ira  usar o condicionador durante o banho, logo após a aplicação do seu shampoo para barba.

 Já o balm entra na etapa de finalização/definição da barba.  Isso quer dizer que é utilizado já fora da ducha e    com os fios secos para alinhar os fios.

O uso em conjunto dos dois produtos, balm e condicionador, vai permitir uma hidratação ainda mais completa e resultados muito superiores, como, mais brilho, pelos mais macios, uma modelagem mais saudável e natural e menos fios  revoltados.

A very common question that arises among bearded men is whether or not there is a difference between a balm and conditioner, since two have the same function: HYDRATION.
To end this doubt once and for all I created this post with useful information and practical tips about each of these cosmetics and their main differences.

What is a beard balm?

Over the years and technological advances, there was a need to create a more efficient and less impacting cosmetic such as waxes, curlers, lacquers and the famous gel, almost always loaded with a lot of chemistry and with somewhat artificial results – for do not say “plasticized”. Thinking about the health of the beard and that could combine the power of hydration and achieve a more natural and healthy modeling. Finally, we come to the current balm! “BALM”.

We can then say that the balm has the following functions:

Natural modeling, without the “stiff” hair aspect.
Apparent volume gain. The balm does not make the beard grow or grow where it does not have, but gives a fuller appearance.
Moderate hydration

What is a beard conditioner?

The conditioner is a much older cosmetic than Balm. However, when we talk about beard conditioners, there may be many people who had no idea that such a cosmetic could exist. But it exists and even makes all the difference in the life of the bearded ones.

The main practical functions of the beard conditioner are:

Deep hydration after washing with your BEARD SHAMPOO.
Untangle the threads, even the most “disgusted”;
Softness, shine and antioxidant action.

Does the balm replace the conditioner?

Not! The combined use of both products can add even more health and beauty to your beard. As we saw in the post, there is a lot of difference between the purpose of the products.

You will use the conditioner during the bath, right after applying your shaving shampoo.

The balm, on the other hand, enters the stage of finalizing / defining the beard. This means that it is already used outside the shower and with dry wires to align the wires.

The combined use of the two products, balm and conditioner, will allow for even more complete hydration and much higher results, such as brighter, softer hair, healthier and more natural modeling and less disruptive hair.

Máscara Social/ Social Mask

                                                             

Bom menino ou Mau menino?

Adorei este texto e estas ilustrações e resolvi partilhar.

Ah, a máscara. Esse novo ícone do momento, amiga inseparável à força para os próximos meses, companheira dos bons e dos maus momentos de desconfinamento… Não há como fugir: as máscaras sociais estão para ficar, vamos ter mesmo de nos habituar a elas.

Supostamente, toda a gente já deveria saber de cor usar uma máscara de proteção, agora obrigatória para entrar em espaços fechados, como transportes públicos, supermercados, centros comerciais, lojas e outros espaços onde se acumulam muitas pessoas. Isto não tem muita ciência. Mas, a atender ao que se vê pelas ruas, parece que ainda há algumas regras a apreender.

A PRIMA foi andar pelas ruas e identificar os principais erros no uso da máscara, e pediu ao talentoso e divertido ilustrador Gonçalo Martins, aka El_Rafeiro para desenhar umas imagens explicativas para totós.

1.NÃO usar a máscara com o nariz de fora

Parece muito evidente, certo? Mas não é… Este é, provavelmente, o erro mais comum. As pessoas usam a máscara com o nariz de fora, como se o malvado do vírus apenas saísse ou entrasse pela boca. Pois bem, pode ser novidade para alguns, mas o vírus acumula-se na boca, no nariz e nos olhos. Andar com o nariz de fora é como ter um gato contaminado escondido com rabo de fora. Não funciona.

2. NÃO usar a máscara a tapar a papada

Ninguém gosta de uma papada, é um facto. E há muito boa gente que preferia esconder a sua. No entanto, esta não é a função de uma máscara de proteção. Porque, ora bem, não protege nada. nem a boca, nem o nariz. E se tiver contaminada por fora torna mais fácil que o vírus passe para o interior, e daí para os seus lindos pulmões. Repita com a PRIMA: máscara a tapar pescoço, não.

3. NÃO usar a máscara com o queixo de fora

Incrível, mas é verdade. A máscara deve tapar o nariz e o queixo, ambas e as duas coisas ao mesmíssimo tempo. A razão é simples: se espirrar ou tossir, as gotículas contaminadas ficam presas dentro da máscara. Se tiver com o queixo de fora, rapidamente se soltam por baixo. Ah, e as máscaras com fole tipo cirúrgicas, devem ser abertas e não ser deixadas direitinhas, impecavelmente esticadas, como se tivessem sido passadas a ferro. Não resulta, malta! É preciso abri-las para, lá está, tapar o nariz, a boca e o queixo.

4. NÃO  usar a máscara solta

Quem diria, não é? Pois, parece que é mesmo verdade. A máscara solta, pendurada como se fosse um brinco só numa orelha, ou com as duas alças completamente laças dos saltos não funciona. A máscara deve estar bem ajustada ao seu rosto sempre.

I loved this text and these illustrations and decided to share.

Ah, the mask. This new icon of the moment, an inseparable friend forcibly for the next months, companion of good and bad moments of lack of definition… There is no escape: the social masks are here to stay, we will really have to get used to them.
Supposedly, everyone should already know by heart to wear a protective mask, now mandatory to enter closed spaces, such as public transport, supermarkets, shopping centers, shops and other spaces where many people accumulate. This doesn’t have much science. But, considering what you see on the streets, it seems that there are still some rules to learn.
PRIMA went to walk the streets and identified the main mistakes in the use of the mask, and asked the talented and amusing illustrator Gonçalo Martins, aka El_Rafeiro to draw some explanatory images for geeks.

1. DO NOT wear the mask with the nose out

It seems very evident, right? But it is not … This is probably the most common mistake. People wear the mask with their noses out, as if the bad guy just came out or entered the mouth. Well, it may be new to some, but the virus accumulates in the mouth, nose and eyes. Walking with your nose out is like having a contaminated cat hidden with its tail out. Does not work.

2. DO NOT use the mask to cover the jowl

Nobody likes a double chin, it is a fact. And there are very good people who would rather hide yours. However, this is not the function of a protective mask. Because, well, it doesn’t protect anything. neither the mouth nor the nose. And if it is contaminated on the outside, it makes it easier for the virus to pass inside, and from there to your beautiful lungs. Repeat with PRIMA: no mask covering your neck.

3. DO NOT wear the mask with the chin out

Incredible, but true. The mask must cover the nose and chin, both and both at the same time. The reason is simple: if you sneeze or cough, the contaminated droplets are trapped inside the mask. If your chin is sticking out, they quickly come underneath. Oh, and the masks with surgical type bellows, must be opened and not be left straight, impeccably stretched, as if they had been ironed. It doesn’t work, guys! You have to open them to cover your nose, mouth and chin.

4. DO NOT use the loose mask

Who knew, right? Yeah, it looks like it’s really true. The loose mask, hanging as if it were an earring just in one ear, or with the two loops completely looped from the heels does not work. The mask should always be well adjusted to your face.

Beleza Masculina

 Cuidados essenciais para Barba, Cabelo e Bigode

Quem disse que os homens não podem se preocupar com a aparência?

Afinal, estar feliz com o que se vê no espelho traz satisfação e eleva a auto-estima de qualquer pessoa, o que é essencial para a qualidade de vida.

Há tempos que cuidar do cabelo, do corpo e da pele deixou de ser uma exclusividade do universo feminino. O homem moderno, antenado e interessado em sua imagem frequenta salões e busca saber mais sobre moda e beleza.

Quais produtos são essenciais na casa de banho de todo homem que preza pela beleza?

Se chegou até aqui, já sabe muito sobre cuidados e beleza masculina, mas conhece os produtos imprescindíveis e que não podem faltar na casa de banho de um homem vaidoso?

Shampoo para cabelo e barba
Já sabemos bastante sobre a importância desse item para a saúde dos cabelos e fios da barba e bigode, mas não custa repetir: para aspecto interessante, a limpeza é um passo primordial. Não subestime essa etapa e escolha produtos que vão turbinar o tratamento dos seus fios.

Bálsamo e ceras modeladoras
Muitos homens adoram investir em um penteado diferente, mesmo que seja para deixar o cabelo com aspecto de desarrumado propositalmente. Finalizadores como balsamo, ceras e lacas são as ferramentas perfeitas para manter o visual estiloso por horas e resistir a agressões como vento e chuva.

Pré/pós-barba
Para fazer a manutenção da barba sem agredir a pele: um creme para barbear ou gel de barbear. Do mesmo jeito, o creme ou loção pós-barba (sem álcool) é o complemento ideal, pois refresca e protege os fios e a pele depois da ação da gilete ou da navalha, proporcionando uma sensação maior de conforto.

Óleo para barba 
Fios ressecados, comichões e picando a parceira (o) nunca mais!

O óleo para barba é fundamental para deixá-los alinhados, macios, hidratados e cheirosos. Para a pele não ficar muito oleosa, seu uso deve ser moderado — cerca de três gotas ( 02 a 3 vezes ao dia ) já fazem toda diferença!

O homem atual é vaidoso e entende que cuidar da aparência, das roupas, do cabelo, da barba e do bigode faz muito bem para o seu bem-estar e amor-próprio.

Afinal, quem não se sente mais feliz e com uma postura mais confiante quando projeta uma imagem da qual se orgulha?

Assim, investir em cuidados de beleza masculina faz bem para o corpo, a saúde e a mente de qualquer homem! Com as dicas deste post, essa tarefa vai ficar muito mais fácil. Agora, basta colocá-las em prática!

EXTRA!!

Não deixe a barba molhada!

Muitos homens não se preocupam em secar a barba ou o bigode depois de lavar o rosto ou tomar banho. Todavia, isso pode ser perigoso: o acúmulo de água favorece a proliferação de fungos e bactérias que promovem a queda dos fios.

A alopecia fúngica é um problema comum relacionado à falta de secagem apropriada de cabelos ou pelos faciais. E tem mais: essa infecção agride os poros da pele, deixando a barba sem forma, desgrenhada e quebradiça. Portanto, não custa nada evitar e secar bem a barba com uma toalha depois de molhá-la, não é mesmo?

This is my History

- 2

This STORY is about BEARDS.  it’s my STORY. 

With professional training in the area of hair and beard since 1987 my passion for beards started in early 2010 when I chose to have a new look. This passion has been my focus of research and discovering why there are more and more men with beards around the world.
In 2017 after I lost my job and had to decide what to do with almost 50 years old and knowing that it would not be so easy to get a job. I started thinking about a professional solution for my life. I remembered the project that was in the drawer which was to produce a line of Beard products. I talked with some people, researched the market for beard products, researched products, talked to barber shops, did a cost survey and ran into a tremendous difficulty that was the investment. In an informal conversation with a friend in a bar here in Lisbon I told him about the project and the difficulties, and to my surprise he became interested and we started the project OS BÁRBAROS BEARD CO.
April 2017 started the first phase of the brand, with 03 Beard oils and 01 Beard shampoo. As every beginning is difficult, we end up going through difficulties and finally overcoming some of them.
January 2018, my investing partner asks to leave the company for personal reasons with his family and I had to decide whether to continue or not. But my desire to continue was greater and so I spent a period researching new formulas.
Finally in December 2018 I have a complete product line, including accessories and a new website.
2020, a world crisis arises in which the whole world is living, and once again I find myself in a situation that would have to decide whether or not to stop, so I decided to tell a little about my story, my passion for beard care, and to tell with the support of all of you bearded. I need to continue to produce, develop more products and, above all, I need to survive on my work.
Os Bárbaros Beard Co is a brand of beard products created by a barber and produced by hand using organic and natural products.

The matter today is serious. Beard hygiene.

Beard hygiene.

I have seen many men sticking to their beards and not paying attention to daily care. So here’s a message: having certain beard care is an obligation of any man, even more in the current world situation on CORONAVIRUS.

So we will treat your BEARD properly for your own good, believe me. I see some men spend an hour getting ready for work and not having the decency to even wash it.

Products suitable for hygiene and beard care?

YES!

Beards need extra care. (Remember the current world situation on CORANAVIRUS)

You don’t put soap on your hair, right?

Of course not, after all you know that soap is for the skin and that for the hair there is the shampoo.

Care with a large, medium or even short beard should follow the same reasoning, you know? So, why haven’t you bought the specific shampoo for beard yet?

It sanitizes the hair, eliminates residues, makes it much easier to comb and not to mention that it is technologically developed to be applied to the type of hair that grows on the face.

The beard shampoo also has components in its formulation, which allow a deep cleaning of the skin, helping to combat possible itches and irritations.

People with very large beards, end up having skin irritations if they do not care properly. So, in addition to washing your beard with shampoo, also take care of hydration.

Therefore, we recommend Beard Oil, as it will supply this deficiency and nourish the beard from root to tip.

EXTRA TIP:

Coronavirus / Covid-19
How can I protect myself?
In affected areas, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends hygiene measures and respiratory etiquette to reduce exposure and transmission of the disease:
Adopt respiratory etiquette measures: cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing (with a tissue or elbow, never with your hands; always throw the tissue in the trash);
Wash your hands frequently. You should wash them whenever you blow, sneeze, cough or after direct contact with sick people;
Avoid close contact with people with respiratory infection.

What is Organic Safflower Oil and what is it for?

The safflower is a plant, relative of the sunflower, native to the Middle East and grown in Europe and the United States.
By possessing many benefits for our health, currently safflower oil is widely used by the cosmetics industry as well as medicine in general.

Why organic?

Organic: it is produced without the use of agro-toxic or transgenic seeds in a process that preserves the natural resources from the beginning to the end.

Benefits and Uses of Safflower Oil

Because it is rich in fatty acids, safflower oil has several benefits, uses and effects on our health. We will see the most common recommendations as well as the most effective uses of safflower oil.
By having large amount of oleic acid, safflower oil is incredibly beneficial to the health of the beard, scalp,hair and also to our skin due to the linoleic acid which is also present in it. Because it is a vitamin that increases circulation in the scalp and skin, oleic acid stimulates vigorous growth of the beard hairs.

Moisturizing of the Beard

As your beard grows it is normal for the wires to dry out, especially at the ends. The dried out wires cause double, triple ends, opaque appearance and sometimes brittle. The oil helps to compensate by moisturizing the entire beard. Improving the appearance of beard hair.

THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC SUNFLOWER SEED OIL

WHY USE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER SPECIFIC TO THE BEARD?

A very common doubt among men who begin to wear a beard is if they need to use a beard shampoo when it is time to wash it.

The answer is yes!

According to experts, for a beautiful, clean and healthy beard, man needs to wash it daily with products specially developed to care for that area.

Shaving is something that helps eliminate dead skin cells, and when you stop using the blade, letting the beard grow, these cells start to accumulate between the strands, which can cause discomfort and irritation to the skin .

Just like the hair, our beard also has its peculiarities. So to be looked after properly, the choice of a shampoo and a beard conditioner, which have been created with the right components for these frizzier yarns, makes all the difference and brings a lot of benefits in the short and long term.

The texture of the beard hairs is much thicker than that of our hair.

For this reason, the beard requires a greater hydration, to avoid dryness and opacity, which can result in weaker and more prone to falling yarn.

Beard shampoos and conditioners have a lighter formula than hair products, but without neglecting the effectiveness of cleansing and moisturizing, providing stronger and brighter beards.

Eliminates bad smell and oiliness

Our beard is constantly in contact with food, beverages, grease, dust, smoke and other debris that can accumulate in it and therefore it can develop a bad smell, as well as our hair when it is not sanitized with the proper frequency.

Protects the skin from the face

There are many differences between the scalp and the skin on our face and this is the main factor that makes beard products more delicate.

After all, the beard is on the face and we know how much facial skin is most sensitive.

Beard shampoos and conditioners have a specific chemical composition that does not harm the skin of the face and prevents allergic reactions that cause itching and redness.

In addition, these products avoid the flaking that the beard already knows, something common caused by the lack of care.

Finally, the shampoo and conditioner should be used together, because the former serves to clean the beard, also eliminating the bad smell, while the second has the power to soften it, leaving it more shapeable.

Now that you know the importance of using one  shampoo and one conditioner specific for your beard  visit our site and know our products.

BEARD’S STYLES

1) Mustache as a Highlight

Mustaches seem to be fashionable, being fuller and with the rest of the beard with less volume.

2) Tidy and Disconnected

The tidy and disconnected beard, also known as “TIDY”, is a beard style that gets lightly messed up but at the same time neat and outlined.

In order for it to be right on your face, you have to make the beard match the ideal face shape.

3) Goatee as Highlight

If you think that goatees are “past things”, you can forget!

Now a days, men look for more styles, even because a man with a well-made beard is much more charming. A full, well-rounded goatee is a good choice for men who want to look older, either because of their work or even because they think they have too young faces.

But the thinner and more open style will look like “Old School Style”.

4) Full and Drawn Beard

 

Beards with Linear Lines are very successful, but the bulky beard and square-shaped beard are ideal for mens with round or oval faces.

5) Beard To Do (Medium Volume)

 

This style of beard to made , is closed and thinner and gives the impression of a few days without shaving.

It is very good for those who do not have a full beard, giving a disguise in the faults.
