Having a curly beard is great. It's naturally thick and strong, and that's something a lot of guys would envy. However what they don't know is that this killer beard doesn’t come without downsides. It tends to grow in different directions and it's a lot harder to maintain. There are a few things that you could do to solve this problem, so here are a few tips and tricks that will help you to keep your beard neat and straight.
Let's start with the basics: the first step to any beard grooming routine is keeping it clean. When hair is soft and healthy, it's easier to manage. So don't forget to use a beard wash and conditioner up to 3 times a week (simply wash it with water the rest of the week).
USE THE RIGHT TOOLS
If you have an unruly beard, a comb and a brush are things you won't be able to go without. That's why it's important to choose the right beard accessories. For best results use a wide-toothed comb because it's going to be more effective untangling your curls. You'll also need a wild boar bristle brush to help spread the products in the beard.
Once you wash your beard your next step should be applying beard oil to moisturise that precious mane of yours. This simple step will restore moisture and shine to your hair, making it softer and ready for styling. After applying the conditioner, comb your beard through to help straighten it and get the product in.
Now that your beard is soft and healthy, it's time to style it. You might need to use a hair dryer or straightening iron to get the best results. After applying your beard oil, set your hair dryer on a low temperature and gently comb through your beard while pulling the hair straight as you follow with the dryer. Make sure to keep your blow dryer further away from your beard to avoid any damage to the hair.
To give your beard some hold, use beard balm after to style your facial hair. Simply apply a small amount of balm to your beard and brush it through with a bristle brush to really get the product in and make your beard look neat.
Last but not least, get your beard trimmed every few weeks. It will help to keep your beard look neat and healthy.
