The rumors are true... I carry around a beard brush and I'll tell you why.

First of all, let me point out the fact that a beard signifies patience. For Example, a man who can grow and maintain a beard exerts a certain kind of patient nature, which then through some sort of chemical reaction, converts into confidence.

There's nothing wrong with a man who takes care of himself. I take pride in my presentation and the character that follows.

Now I understand that a grown man carrying around a brush in his pocket may seem a bit... unorthodox....but if that means having a beard that's straight and pampered 24/7, then I have no problem rolling with the punches; To each their own.

My beard has brought me good luck in the past and no matter how short or long it is, I' going to make sure whatever "luck" is being generated continues.

Let's be real for a second, we currently live in a society where beards are the new fashion statement. Men everywhere are coming out of the woodwork with facial masterpieces and it doesn't look like the trend is dying out soon. So as long as it's "cool" to have a beard, then I'm going to continue my preparation by perfecting what some are unable to even accomplish.

So to all the "haters" out there who think it's weird or unsanitary to carry around a beard brush, know that I wash and condition my beard and the brush on the daily in order to maintain freshness, proper hygiene and natural swag.

Viva La Beard!
