Beard care tips from Chris at The Mod Cabin

Chris from The Mod Cabin Talks Beard Care

A few weeks ago, we spoke with Chris from The Mod Cabin about their quickly growing all-natural beard and skin care company. While we talked a lot about the business, Chris also dropped some serious beard care wisdom on us, and we’re sharing his 5 best tips right here. No-Shave November (or Movember, if that’s your preferred event) is just about halfway over, so if you’re considering keeping what you’re currently growing, or you’re just looking for ways to make your beard more luscious, read on.

Beard Care Tips from The Mod Cabin

Drink Plenty of Water
Staying hydrated makes your hair grow faster and keeps it from becoming dry. Drink a lot of water, and try to cut out caffeine when possible.

Take Your Vitamins (For Beard Growth)
Biotin can help with beard growth, and you can get it in vitamin B7. You also want to be sure you’re getting enough protein. Omega fish oil supplements can help with that as well.

Dump the Comb and Get a Beard Brush
Invest in a Boar’s Hair Bristle Brush – it does a better job of distributing beard oil through your hair than a comb.

Beard Care Tips: Use Birch Tar Soap from The Mod Cabin

Don’t Forget to Wash Your Beard
A lot of our customers wash twice a week with Birch Tar Beard Soap – it exfoliates and moisturizes, which helps take care of dead skin under your beard. Don’t forget to apply oil or balm after you’ve washed your beard.

For the Love of Pete, Moisturize
Use both oils and balms together to moisturize the skin beneath your beard. This can help remove anything that might be blocking follicles. These kind of products soften the beard and make it all around healthier.

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out or Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!
Very handsome.

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.
anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!
Werd!  6'3" 320lbs seems to be to big for most of the fashion that I am finding here.  To big, yet to small for "Big and Tall"
