About Us

ali kuoppalaHello, and welcome.

I’m Ali Kuoppala, the founder, author, and editor of Beard Resource.

I founded this site in the four years ago, to serve as a true and honest beard blog, without the usual misleading information or beard oil peddling sales talk that is all too well known in the beard-o-sphere.

You might recognize me from some of my earlier online ventures. In fact, Beard Resource is by far not my first website.

About The Author

My journey online started in seven years ago, when I founded The Anabolic Men, which currently has over 15-million page views and counting.

I have also authored and co-authored multiple books, most of which can be found in Amazon.

But what got me into writing about beards? Well, my own experiences in struggling with growing my own.

Just a few years ago, I had just a bit of growth on my chin and upper lip, barely anything on the cheeks.

So what I did was that I used my knowledge about hormones and other body hacks I had learned during the years I wrote my earlier websites and converted that information into something that’s applicable for facial hair enhancement.

Did it work? You can be the judge…

Do I think I can teach you how to replicate my success? Absolutely. That’s what prompted me to create Beard Resource in the first place.

I want you to learn all these “secrets” which can truly help you get a sick beard of your own, and most importantly, I want to shake the structures of the online beard industry, which falsely claims that you can grow your beard faster by using their oils and pills (which is not the case, you need something far more powerful).

Beard Resource is not limited to information about growth optimization. After all, I have a big bushy beard now, which needs care and maintenance; so I have to be on the cutting-edge of research on what works for beard care now as well.

That’s why you can also find categories about beard grooming and reviews about the best beard tools in here.

I truly hope you enjoy your stay!

Some of our other popular articles are also related to growth enhancement, such as our guide on patchy beards, and the ultimate guide to the “minoxidil beard“. We were also the first to write a detailed guide about using a Derma Roller for Beard Growth.

Here’s our series on different beard lengths:

Our Editorial Guidelines

Accurate Information

We believe that every reader of Beard Resource deserves accurate, factual, and fair information.

This is why we double-check everything before we publish our articles, and make sure that every claim in our articles is backed by sufficient evidence, be it scientific or anecdotal.

We are not the typical beard blog that tries to sell you every possible beard oil there is under the sun, with the claims that it would grow you a better beard and other such nonsense.

In our site, we will only recommend the things that actually work, and only for their intended purposes.

Our integrity is important to us, and we want to be transparent about what we do and why we do it.

At no time or place shall our editorial integrity be compromised by advertiser influence. If we want to recommend a product to you – the reader – we will be contacting the advertisers to see if they want to be part of our website, not the other way around.
