Panasonic Wet and Dry Hair and Beard Trimmer – Silver
How to use beard trimmer? A beard is an important part of a man’s identity. And by following simple steps, any man can ensure a great-looking trim to keep the beard looking good.
Before trimming, the beard should be washed and dried. This helps to remove any dirt. Once dry, the beard should be combed in the direction it grows to ensure an even cut. Some people also apply shaving gel or oil for comfort.
Most trimmers include guides that allow for cutting various lengths. When using a new trimmer, use a guide larger than what you normally used to get a feel for the trimmer. When getting familiar with the trimmer, it is better to make several passes with different guides than to use a wrong-sized guide the first time.
Most men trim the neck area first. This helps to set the stage for the rest of the trimming. Removing the guard and using the bare trimmer allows for more precise cutting. Different lengths of beard require different types of trimming. For longer beards, trimming should be done in the direction of the hair growth. This prevents a patchy or uneven look. For shorter beards, trim in either direction. The mustache area could be left a little longer to allow the hair to rest properly.
Before finishing, comb through the beard to check for any missed hairs. This will ensure an even cut. Most trims last for about a week, but could be trimmed earlier if you want.
A beard trimmer is a simple piece of equipment, but by doing its job, it can get dirty and not perform optimally. Through a little care and cleaning, your trimmer’s life can be extended and you’ll get a more precise trim.
Through its purpose, the trimmer cuts small hairs. Most of these hairs fall away harmlessly, but some can get caught up in the trimmer and cause a problem.
Most trimmers come with a brush and oil. While trimmers are all similar, be sure to read the owner’s manual for any directions specific to your model. The brush is used to remove the hair from the blades. Gently brush the hairs. It is a good practice to do this regularly, usually after every trim, to prevent a build-up of hairs, which could damage the intricate parts. When the hairs have been brushed away, run the trimmer for a few seconds to loosen any other hairs. Then another quick brush should be enough for a clean unit.
Once the blades are cleaned, the trimmer should be lubricated to keep the parts running smoothly. Make sure the trimmer is off when adding oil. Only add one or two drops of oil at a time. This is usually enough to adequately lubricate the blades. Too much oil can actually do more harm by allowing the trimmed hairs to collect on the blades.
If using a washable trimmer, the unit can actually be rinsed with water to remove the hairs and grease that may collect.
