This is my History

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.

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.
