Just like everything that you love in your life, your beard needs to be washed and kept clean as well. Your beard will inevitably come into contact with foods and drinks and can be affected by oils and dead skin cells. Keep your beard washed will cut down on irritation and itching. Keeping that mane clean will also aid in healthy hair and a full, brilliant beard. Something you have indeed been working towards! Keep it clean!
An oiled beard is a happy beard. Beard oil has come a long way and can help prevent dryness, and can be used at every stage of growth. A good oil replaces essential oils lost from your skin and helps with dry skin, redness, flakiness, and irritation. It will also keep your beard looking healthy while promoting growth, as well as softening your coarse hair in the process. As we stated before, an oiled beard is a beautiful beard!
Training Your Beard
Yes, you too can train your beard, and it’s an important part of the beard grooming process. Most beards start as an unruly mess of hair that can be quite a challenge to gain control off. However, a good brush and comb combination can help with that. You can train your beard by taking some time and changing the way that it grows in. This is where your brush comes in handy. Take a few minutes each day to brush that beard and train it to come in exactly how you want it. This is essential for grooming, and is sure to make for a full, healthy mane in the process!
Softening Your Beard
A soft beard is an illustrious beard! Beards by nature tend to be coarse and a bit sharp, however with a good beard softener, you can change all of that. Softening your beard with balms and more will offer a cleaner and neater beard which is also nice to the touch. This makes for soft skin underneath as well, and can certainly improve its appearance drastically. Go soft or go home!
