Are you a pogonophile?


Wouldn't you be a pogonophile? If you don't know this word, but you have a beard, you may be a pogonophile.

Pogonophile ! Here is a word that is not used much in our vocabulary. And yet a large number of men today are pogonophiles, without knowing it ! And not just men by the way, because even a woman can be pogonophile. Indeed, since the beard has become a key element in men's beauty, men are taking more and more care of it. Even, for some, it has become so essential that they spend hours every week taking care of it. So, are you a pogonophile? Discover all the elements that determine it below.

What is a pogonophile?

If we take a dictionary definition, we find that a pogonophile is a person who likes a beard. This remains very generic, because in the end, any person can be considered a pogonophile if:

  • she lets her beard grow,

  • she wants to have a beard (but has difficulty growing her beard)

  • she likes men who wear beards (hence the fact that a woman can also be pogonophile).

But a pogonophile, if we go into the details, is a person for whom the beard is a real state of mind, a way of life. He will thus spend hours taking advice on how to take good care of his beard. He is also going to be attentive to men who wear beards to see how they take care of it, and possibly to compare himself to them. The most extreme pogonophile can even be found in bearded clubs.

So know that there is his opposite, the pogonophobe who, on the contrary, does not support the hairs on the beard and who will do everything to remove them (permanent hair removal from the beard), see who will avoid kissing a bearded.

The pogonophile uses his beard as a tool of seduction

And he's not wrong, women (and some men) prefer bearded men. The beard is indeed a sign of masculinity, virility, not to say sexual potency. Thus, in a game of seduction, a bearded man will have more chance of winning the favors of his or her partner.

The beard of the pogonophile to feel better

The pogonophile can also work on his beard as an element of reassurance, to feel better, to value himself. A well-trimmed, clean, shiny beard can indeed prove to be a sign of personal satisfaction.

It can also help give character to your face : some grow beards to look more masculine, even older. Even give yourself a certain personality depending on the beard size chosen.

How do you recognize a pogonophile?

A pogonophile is a person who will take great care of his beard which is, according to him, an integral part of his personality. Thus, he will take care of his beard as he would take care of his health, his look, etc.

As much to say to you that it will not be necessary to make him any reflection on his beard, it would be to question his personality and all the hours spent taking care of his beard. But if we go into more detail, the pogonophile can easily recognize himself.

The pogonophile whatever his type of beard

The pogonophile is not only the hipster, or the bearded man who wears a very long beard of several months. No, pogonophile has any beard size : long beard, few days beard, 3 days beard, beard collar, sparse beard , etc.

The pogonophile tends to go to the barber

The pogonophile likes that we take care of his beard. Not only will he take care of it himself by following an elaborate beard routine, which I detail below. But he will also take pleasure in going to the barber to be taken care of, with professional hands. Because you don't have to be a beard expert to be pogonophile. Even a person who does not like to take care of their beard, for fear of messing it up, for example by trimming it or drawing the outline of the beard , can be a pogonophile. In this case, he will prefer to go to the barber to avoid any mistakes and come out with the most beautiful beard possible.

What attention does a pogonophile pay to his beard ?

Inevitably, the pogonophile will take meticulous care of his beard. You will thus find in the bathroom of the pogonophile a whole arsenal of care products for the beard and accessories for the beard. The goal is to have a perfect beard ! Thus, the pogonophile will perform the various treatments for the beard :

A pogonophile will have a perfectly trimmed beard

A pogonophile stands out because he has a perfect beard. And a perfect beard goes first and foremost with a well-trimmed beard. A neat, precise beard, without any hairs that do not get lost. Thus, the pogonophile, like a lover of high tech products who will get the latest fashionable cell phone, will want to have the latest beard trimmer . And above all, a beard trimmer that has the most possible settings, in particular to make the best finishes and the sharpest beard contours.

The pogonophile will also tend through his beard outlines with a beard stencil and a straight razor , to have as much precision as possible by cutting to the nearest beard hair.

The pogonophile also has scissors to be able to cut more precisely than with a beard trimmer. Especially if he decides to make a particular cut to his beard.

Finally, the pogonophile will shave his beard, or trim his beard with a beard bib . This will save him from spending too much time cleaning his bathroom, and spending more time maintaining his beard!

Obviously, the pogonophile will have a very complete beard kit , including not only different accessories for mowing and maintaining his beard, but also full of care products.


A pogonophile will have a clean beard

The pogonophile knows that the beard is a place which, if left unwashed, is one of the dirtiest parts of the face. The beard is indeed a real breeding ground for bacteria, but also for dirt linked to perspiration, food, pollution, etc. It is therefore necessary to wash your beard well using, as desired and according to your tastes:

The pogonophile will choose beard-specific products to wash their beard. He will thus avoid using soap or hair shampoo, which are not suitable for beard hair or the skin under the beard.

Here is my selection of beard shampoos.

The pogonophile also performs a beard scrub once a week to deeply cleanse the skin under the beard and remove excess sebum from the hair. This will prevent beard dandruff , be it dry dandruff or oily dandruff. The beard scrub will also prevent ingrown hairs in the beard , especially at the neck. Ingrown hairs tend to make the beard less attractive by forming pimples. Here is my selection of exfoliating products for the beard.

A pogonophile will have a brushed beard

It's fine to have a beautiful beard, perfectly trimmed, perfectly washed. But it is still necessary that the beard is also well brushed! The pogonophile will pay particular attention to the appearance of his beard: the hairs must be perfectly disciplined, out of the question to see beard hairs going all over the place. And of course, the beard of a pogonophile will be a beard without knots! Also, one of the allies for the maintenance of the beard on a daily basis will be to have a beard brush, of which I put you below a small selection. Brushing your beard in the morning, or even in the morning and evening, will therefore allow you to have a nice beard but in addition will accelerate blood circulation thanks to the action of the bristles of the brush on the skin of the face. .

Finally, the pogonophile will not hesitate to try all the new qualitative products for the beard that may come out. Always with the aim of finding the best care product for his beard.

A pogonophile will have a hydrated beard

More than any other bearded man, the pogonophile knows that the hydration of the beard and the skin under the beard are essential to have a beautiful beard. It is even the decline to have a beard that shines, soft and above all that grows well. He will thus apply a beard oil every day, even a castor oil for the beard , to hydrate his beard . ​ Because the pogonophile hates having an itchy beard . Here is my selection of beard oils.

But if ever the pogonophile is not a fan of oily products, which can leave a feeling of greasy beard if it is not well applied, if it does not penetrate correctly into the hairs of the beard, then the solution may be to use a beard cream. Having the same consistency as a face cream, the beard cream will indeed be easier to apply to the beard.


A pogonophile will have a scented beard


The pogonophile will not leave his home without having put on a product to perfume his beard ! And yes, when it comes time to kiss, the pogonophile likes that the person notices his beard. So, in addition to offering a soft beard, he also likes to smell the perfume in his beard. Depending on the perfume chosen, it also demonstrates a part of his personality, or his mood of the moment. Many beard oils are scented, precisely to bring personality to the beard.

A pogonophile will have a well-groomed beard

The pogonophile will never leave home without combing his beard. And this for two reasons:

  • from an aesthetic point of view, a well-groomed beard makes all the difference with an ungroomed beard. No hair protrudes from the beard. To do this, he will use a beard balm that will give the beard the desired shape.

  •   from a beard quality point of view, the pogonophile knows that by styling his beard, he will promote blood micro-circulation and thus improve blood flow under the skin. This will have a very beneficial impact on the hair follicle, where the hair takes root. The hair will be in better shape.

A pogonophile will have a healthy hair follicle

The pogonophile knows that the basis for a beautiful beard is to have a healthy hair follicle. Because if the latter is in good shape, active and not asleep then:

  • beard hair will grow in the best possible conditions,

  • beard hair will be strong and sturdy giving the appearance of a thick beard .

  • and especially the hair of the beard will be very shiny! This is all the more important if you have a red beard which needs to have a good luminosity.

The dermaroller is a kind of very small brush that contains not pins for brushing but tiny needles, very very fine. By passing the beard dermaroller directly into the beard, the needles will penetrate the skin and accelerate blood micro-circulation. This will make the hair follicle more qualitative.

You now know everything about the pogonophile. So, do you consider yourself a pogonophile?
