If you have just started growing a beard, you might be surprised to know that it needs some care and attention. But don’t worry, good beard maintenance is not difficult or time consuming. Just like brushing your teeth in the morning, beard grooming should simply become a natural part of your morning routine, that won’t take more than 5 minutes of your time. If you follow these simple steps then your beard will be tidy, soft and well-groomed.
The first thing that you need to do to begin your grooming routine, is to wash your beard. Just like we wash and take care of our hair, it is as important to do the same with our beards. Imagine never washing your hair, it wouldn’t look or feel good, would it?
We strongly recommend using beard wash or soap. Unlike regular shampoo’s, these products are specifically designed to to wash and condition beard follicles, leaving your beard soft and clean. If your facial hair needs even more hydration use beard conditioner to really soften and moisturise your beard. However, just like hair on your head, we suggest using beard washing products 2-3 times per week. On other days just simply wash it with water only.
This is the most important part of your beard grooming routine. Beard oil or butter is a must for a healthy beard that looks and feels good! These products will prevent your skin from drying out, by reaching the skin beneath the beard and moisturising it.
If your beard needs taming and styling, use beard balm after applying the moisturiser. The advantage of the beard balm is that it tends to give you a little more volume and makes the beard look thicker. If you have a thin, patchy or misbehaving beard, you might want to consider using this product, because it will help you to tame it.
Comb Or Brush It
Last but not least, don't forget to comb or brush your beard. It will not only keep your facial hair tidy and neat, but it will also help your beard to grow in the right direction and avoid ingrown hairs. It will also help to moisturise your facial hair and the skin underneath even more, because the teeth of the comb will evenly distribute your moisturiser to the areas that need it the most.
