Maintaining a well-groomed beard is more difficult than growing them and it starts with a great beard wash. People going for all-natural looks like terminal beard, tweard, or the yeard can still derive a number of benefits by engaging in beard care regularly. Although some styles need you to put in more effort compared to others, every style can still be maintained in top condition by applying certain basic steps and using specific beard styling tools:
Beard Shaving and Beard Wash
You should also use a beard shaving kit for maintaining your beard style. Do this after you’re completed washing but always before you apply products like beard oil and balm. By applying these products, you can reduce your chances of developing ingrown hairs and prevent razor burn.
This plays an important role in protecting your beard from damage. Argan oil, coconut oil, or Vit. E is usually the core ingredient in a beard oil product, which can be applied to the beard on a daily basis. While it might seem redundant, especially if you’re using beard balm, beard oil can ensure that your beard’s locks remain smooth and extra shiny. People struggling with ingrown beard hair should definitely not skip beard oil.
It is also extremely easy to apply. Some oils provide spray applicators that you can use whereas others need you to pour the oil onto your hands & then apply it on your beard. You don’t need to rinse. Just apply the oil on your face and it’s done.
This happens to be an effective mixture of wax, cocoa or shea butter, jojoba or argan oil. The wax content protects your skin and beard hair. The oil and butter soften and moisturize your hair and wards off razor burn and ingrown hairs. Beard balm is a blessing for people who are looking to have a soft beard, or experiencing beard itch.
You can start applying beard balm by scooping it from the container & rubbing it on your hands till it becomes almost liquid. You can then massage it slowly on your beard & the skin, you don’t have to rinse the beard since it’s similar to leave-in conditioners. By applying beard balm regularly, you can enjoy a healthy and silky-smooth beard.
Wash Your Beard Daily
Apart from being a good hygienic practice, a regular beard wash can also reduce your beard itch as it removes natural oils and bacteria from building up and irritating your skin. While regular shampoo has the same effects, we recommend going for special shampoos designed to condition beard hair.
For washing your beard properly, get the hair wet first either over your skin or in your shower. Just squirt some shampoo onto our hands. People with thicker beards might need more whereas people with a goatee don’t need as much. Start lathering it up. Apply this shampoo onto your beard and massage your hair follicles. Rinse your beard clean after you’ve covered your entire beard in shampoo.
While you do need to put in some extra effort to maintain your beard, it is fully worth it. All you need to do is spend some time every morning applying all the right products and wash your beard thoroughly for keeping it smooth and healthy.
