If you have just started growing a beard, you might be surprised to know that it needs some special 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. 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.
After you dry your beard, apply beard balm and oil. Not sure which one you need to use? Press here to find out more about these products and how they work.
If your beard needs taming and styling, use beard balm first. 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.
Some men don’t use beard balm daily or don’t use it at all, but beard oil is a must! The biggest benefit of this product is that it can reach the skin beneath the beard and moisturize it. This is important, because it will prevent your skin from drying out. What you should also know about beard oil is that it promotes the hair growth and the new hair will be thicker and fuller.
Combing your beard daily is not necessary, but if you want to give that final touch, to get that well-groomed look, combing will do the work.
It is important to comb from top to bottom and from side to the centre. This way, you are also taming and educating your hair to grow in the desired direction. Combing the beard gently instead of going too fast will give you the best results. Press here to read our guide on how to comb your beard correctly.
