Patented Blackbeard for Men is instant, brush-on temporary colour for beard, moustache and sideburns. Applies in seconds, lasts all day, looks natural and has none of the side-effects, odour or hassle of dyes. This is not a hair dye- it is a temporary colour which has the advantage of lasting all day but can also easily be washed out.
Blackbeard for Men is normally used by those who do not want to dye their hair. When using this product, you can leave as much grey as you want (for a natural look,) or cover the grey completely. Use it on your roots if you need a touch up and don't want to re-apply your regular hair dye. Also great to fill in gaps, making it ideal for men with thinner beards or stubble who want a more fuller look. Lastly, you can use it on your eyebrows, which you definitely cannot do with a dye.
This product can be applied on the beard, moustache, eyebrows, sideburns or on the hair.

While it is durable and water resistant, Blackbeard for Men is not a dye. It does fade over time and with wear and tear, face washing, etc., so consider having some on hand if you’re going to be out of the house for a while.
What are the ingredients?
The patented ingredients in Blackbeard for Men Formula X have been safely used in cosmetics products for many years. However, some people may have skin sensitivity, allergies, or other issues. If you experience any of these or any other symptoms, please discontinue use of Blackbeard for Men immediately and contact a health care professional. Blackbeard for Men is for external use only! Blackbeard for Men Formula X has also been safety tested and found 100% mercury-free.
1) Apply Dry. After your shower, dry your facial hair thoroughly before applying Blackbeard for Men.
2) Keep it Neat. Blackbeard for Men works best on neatly trimmed to moderate-length facial hair. It does not well on large sections of hair.
3) Think like a painter. Brush on Blackbeard for Men in the same direction as your natural hair growth. This will ensure that it looks natural and, even better, will fill gaps undetectably.
4) Consider Leaving a Little Gray. Yep, you can get rid of all the grey with Blackbeard for Men, but it looks more natural if you leave a little, especially around the edges. This will also help the product continue to look natural as it wears over time. (Of course, you can always reapply Blackbeard for Men when/if needed!)
5) Just a Little Touch-Up. Consider having a tube of Blackbeard for Men in your pocket or briefcase just in case you need a touch-up at some point throughout the day.
6) Oops! Hey, it happens. Sometimes while putting on Blackbeard for Men, we put on too much, or get some on a part of our face where we don’t want it. Just grab a wet washcloth, tissue, whatever, and wipe it off. And if it gets on fabric, wash with cold water and soap.
7) Get Your Date On. Blackbeard for Men was specifically designed to help guys on the dating circuit. Users report stunning results after using Blackbeard for Men versus before. So feel free to experiment a bit. One Blackbeard for Men user tells us he uses the product to contour his facial hair to give himself a more devilish look. “I’m getting so much tail it’s insane,” he writes.
8) Mix N’ Match. Another Blackbeard for Men user tells us that while his beard is mostly light brown, he uses a touch of the dark brown to add tonalities to it that he says makes it look better. And another user says that while his hair is dark brown, he likes to use black-color Blackbeard for Men because he feels it makes his chin look stronger. Whatever works for you!
9) Beware the Hair. Blackbeard for Men is specifically designed for facial hair, which tends to be a bit coarser than the hair on your head. Because of that, we don’t recommend using it on bald spots or fringes. It will work, but it might be a bit clumpy. But feel free to experiment and let us know what works for you!
10) The Power Is In Your Hands. You control exactly how much Blackbeard for Men you want to use. Use sparingly for a subtle look, or go for it and wipe that gray out completely. Unlike the leading competing men’s facial hair colour product, with Blackbeard for Men, you control your look.

This is truly a fantastic product, exactly what I was hoping for (almost). After using Just For Men for a few months and suddenly getting terrible sores on my face, I thought I'd have to either settle for a grey beard or shave it off.
Then I found this little treasure. It looks fantastically natural and only takes a few minutes to apply...perhaps less than a minute.
Just apply it slowly and sparingly...less is more here, so don't pile it on, you're not creosoting the fence here. Soft slow brushes and before you know it, you've got an awesome beard. I only have a short goatee and moustache and it looks brilliant.
The reason for 4*'s and not 5 and the "almost" above is because it does not last all day. It's great for about 6 hours but then you do need to re apply a little. So at work; I start at 7.30am, and so at 1pm lunch time, I pop to the bathroom for a touch up (bit of a pain, really!). If I'm at home I don't bother re applying, I put it on at about 9 or 10am and its good enough for the whole day.
Summing up....if you are sensitive to the dyes they sell in the shops, then give this a try, you won't regret it. For a truly natural look, it is AWESOME!!
