THE MIGHTY BEARD. Woven into our cultural fabric by our 1980’ forefathers who set the scene with the sportsmen – moustache. Lead by our number one Merve Hughes, closely followed by Dennis Lillee and Boonie. Pop Culture trumped it up with our Bee Gee’s bearded trio backed by Darryl ‘The Castle’ Kerrigan, Mike Walsh and pretty much everyone’s Uncle Terry.
The hirsute torch has been passed through the generations to now becoming the most dominate trend for us Aussie fella’s. In 2015 it was reported that 3 out 5 of us have facial hair, with 23% sporting a mighty-stache.
Stella commitment to our heritage fellas.
Now, the jury is still out whether it’s because we can’t be arsed shaving or because our missus likes it or that we’ve simply let our inner hipster out of the closet but with over 60% of us getting around with facial hair it’s clear the beard is more common than…….
Fast forward to 2021 and what used to be one shelf in the bathroom could now blow out to a man-cabinet of smick-named oils, balms, shampoos, conditioners, moisturisers, combs, brushes, tweezers, clippers and trimmers and now ball-scapers.
So let’s scale it back. The Ducks Nuts philosophy is about the easy quick fixes and keeping solutions simple. We don’t like to over complicate stuff here and one thing is for sure, whether you are the noob or seasoned beadsmen the number one most essential item for your grooming kit is a good reliable beard oil. Especially for us outdoor tradies, construction workers, farmers or labourers who are building a facial nest of dust, dirt and tomato sauce which means we need it daily.
So here is a simple low down in a 1min video with Muzz using The Duke beard oil how a few quick tricks on how keep that mighty beard conditioned and tamed and most importantly, your skin hydrated.
If we could leave you with one final tip to make your beard feel like the Ducks Nuts. Shampoo that awesome tribute to our Bee Gee brothers 1-2 times per week. It can get pretty filthy in there and you need to nail that bacteria with a decent beard shampoo. Hair shampoo won’t cut it for our coarse beard hair and will dry out the skin.
