Anything is possible when you have a beard.
Anything is also possible without a beard, but this is our story, and it started with a glorious grove of man-pubes all over my face. I was 24 at the time, and I wanted to see if I was finally able to grow a beard. After a few uncomfortable weeks of living with this jungle mask, I finally had it to a respectable enough length to where people asked me what I did to take care of it which absolutely shocked me because aside from the occasional trim with the shears, I did nothing at all to take care of my now “beard”. Seeing as my soon-to-be wife and I were already super into natural home remedies, we started Tame Mane!
We took a lot of effort into not only creating a product that smells good, but by creating a product that aids in allowing the body to heal itself from a multitude of different problems relating to the hair and skin from acne, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, itchy skin, greasy skin, hair loss, wrinkles, ingrown hairs, rashes, scars, burns, and so much more. Initially when we started, we weren’t sure whether or not to consider our product “beard oil” or something else, because although I used it for my beard, Jocelyn used it just as much if not more than I did! We would have empty bottles all over the top of our dresser all the time. So essentially, it wasn’t a big risk for us to start Tame Mane because worst case scenario, we would be left with a whole bunch of product we love using! It wasn’t until we decided to vend our very first event, which was Central Florida Veg Fest of 2015 that we really got serious with things and strapped in for the ride of which we are currently still on!
First sale at Central Florida Veg Fest on October 24, 2015.
Before we knew it, we were on the road constantly heading to different events all over Central Florida and eventually we started exploring places outside of Florida. This is now going to be our 3rd year touring around, but it will be our first year touring with our son Kanoa who will be turning 2 in July!
