Now I know I haven’t been very up to date on my reviews, and I know some of you have been itching for reviews. Well folks, I’m sorry I haven’t been positing reviews like I once was, Life has gotten in the way! It’s tough when you’re working sometimes 60 hours a week to then come home and sit and write a review on a wax, OR just a general blog posting. I have been continuing to try out new waxes and waxing options over the past months, but haven’t had the time to sit down and write. But I have finally found some time this weekend to write a little bit (mostly THIS post).. And the meaning for this post is to keep you updated with what’s to come for The ‘Stache Wax Review.
So, Whats next?
Well One of the most recent reasons I haven’t been reviewing, is because I’ve been letting my beard grow and my moustache rest. Keeping your hair healthy is a HUGE part of having a fantastic moustache/beard. One of the downsides to constantly waxing your Mo is that the wax doesn’t give the hair a chance to breathe. Since most waxes are petroleum and wax based, they can easily clog the pores and restrict the natural hair oils from keeping the hair naturally oiled and healthy. By restricting the oils, it is very easy to gain a dry, fragile, brittle ‘tache, and Recently, I’ve been noticing more and more split ends on my ‘stache, so I’ve been taking it easy on actually waxing my ‘tache to let the hair regain health!
Another major reason for not waxing/reviewing, is I’ve been “Training” for Beard Team USA’s National Beard and Moustache Competition. On the 11th of this month (November) Beard Team USA is holding the National B&M Competition in Los Vegas, and you guessed it, I’m COMPETING!! So I have been letting my Mo’ grow to gain a competitive length for my category (which I am not releasing until the comp)…
SO what happens after Nationals? Well I am trimming my moustache back to a respectable length, and will start reviewing waxes once again!! -I know, I’m excited too!
Which waxes do I have sitting in my basket waiting to be reviewed? Welll Wouldn’t you like to know!

I know that’s a lot of waxes, but fear not, I will get it done!!! I am more than excited to start reviewing them again! It’s always great to find and try new products.
Also, as promised, I will be creating a Graphic for the waxes I’ve reviewed. It will be a chart organizing the waxes based on their hold, scent, applicability and so on.
FOR ALL YOU WAX MAKERS OUT THERE: I do thank you all for sending me tins of your wax. I apologize for the promised reviews taking so long. I have not forgotten about your wax, and I’m not the type to not follow through with a promise made, So please keep us in mind and as soon as I complete the review of your wax, you will be the first person I tell about its posting. Again, I am sorry for taking so long with the reviews.
Hope this updates you all! If you have any questions please feel free to ask!!
Until Next Time!
Any chance you can leave some tips for a healthy moustache, foods or care etc. Maybe some tips for “reenergizing” the satche. Thanks
I would like to know how you plan on trimming your mo “back to a respectable length”? When I try, it looks like I’ve got “clipped” ends and looks bad. Any tips would be MOST appreciated – thanks!
Trim to length then comb your moustache straight down, walrus style, trim the ends straight across using the longest outer hairs as a guide, this should give the graduated taper your looking for.
