Who (Beard) Cares?

Filed Under: Men's Health,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Spring season brings us hockey playoffs and for many players, and some fans, is the time of the year for an old and fun tradition: the playoff beards.

The superstitious practice of not shaving during the playoffs started by hockey players and it’s now also part of other sports playoffs. It’s not known exactly when and who started this trend, perhaps the New York Islanders in the 80s as a couple of Swedish players part of that team may have been inspired by tennis champion Björn Borg’s custom of not shaving his beard during Wimbledon. The playoff beard is believed to bring good luck to teams, so as the team enters the playoffs, players stop shaving and will not shave until the team is eliminated or wins the hockey final game of the Stanley Cup.

However, for many man, a beard is not about “not shaving” and letting the facial hair grow out. It’s much more than that. A beard means many different things. Some men may have it for cultural-religious tradition, while some others believe it to be fashion. Some men think a beard can show virility or strength, while others may think it can be classy or show high social status. No matter what your reason or believe, maintaining a beard requires some work as trimming, cleaning and treating hair is essential to keep it healthy and in good shape.

Conditioners, moisturizers, balms, and even a full grooming kit can be very helpful for those growing a beard. Depending on your hair type and the length, beard oils may be handy too. Click here to check out LuckyVitamin.com beard care line of products.
