Facts about Black Men’s Beards You Never Knew

Facts about Black Men’s Beards You Never Knew

What is it specifically about beards? You can change where you are social, in relationships, and even to a greater confidence level by just concealing your face with an impressive mass of hair.

You can't discount the strength (and cool) of a rocking, well-kempt beard when there are so many studies demonstrating so many different things regarding beards and their impact on both the wearer and those around him. We salute any bearded men among you. We also congratulate you if you're considering growing a beard.

But keep in mind that it's more than simply a beard—also it's something with a lengthy history and a wealth of gathered information. Let's look more closely.

You've just scratched the surface.

A person who has a very long beard attracts attention and receives plenty of second looks. The first thing that comes to mind when you think of the gents in the storied American rock band ZZ Top is their beards (even if their drummer, the appropriately called Frank Beard, doesn't have one).

But did you know that if you don't shave or trim your beard for the rest of your life, it may grow to be nearly 27 feet long? Even the longest beards from today (and yesterday) would seem like stubble next to that one.

Long but not quite close

To put the first fact into perspective, Hans Langseth of Norway, who had a beard that was 17 feet, 6 inches long in 1927, holds the record for having the world's longest beard. In Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian Institution currently houses Langseth's beard.

Your friend is beard oil.

Now is the perfect time to start using beard oil if you have a beard but haven't before. Because it prevents itching, eliminates the dreaded beard dandruff, and facilitates styling, beard oil is a crucial ally in the fight for a well-groomed beard. Consider it a wonder medication for your beard.

When it comes to beard dandruff

Dandruff on the beard resembles dandruff on the scalp. Dry, white flakes make up the precipitation, which can fall as snow on your clothing and make you look, well, undignified. Thankfully, there are several ways to manage it, including using beard oil, beard balm, and beard brushes, as well as following a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Therefore, get up off the couch, get moving, and permanently get rid of beard dandruff.

Beards are beneficial to your health.

Your life might actually be saved by a beard. The wonderful mass of hair on your face, for instance, can shield up to 95% of the sun's most dangerous rays, reducing your risk of developing skin cancer.

Do you wish to be, ahem, lucky? Develop a beard!

There is a ton of proof that having a beard makes a man more popular, but there's more. According to a 2008 British survey, women prefer beard-sporting males as partners.

Gentlemen, are you still debating picking up your razor this morning?

Want to appear fierce? Develop a beard!


There is undoubtedly a link between beards and how people view a man with a beard. In fact, when you wear a beard, people view you as having more swagger and aggression, even if you are not unduly aggressive or even extremely aggressive.


Additionally, women view aggression as a show of strength and protection, not always a bad thing.
