Must DO's To Maintain Your Beard The Right Way
Like the hair on top of your head, beards require maintenance too. This includes washing, trimming, conditioning, using the right products and yes, even brushing. To keep your beard looking and smelling good, you are going to have to make some effort.
In a nutshell, listed below is everything you need to know to maintain your beard and keep your beard game going strong.
1.𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗼𝗼 𝗧𝗼 𝗪𝗮𝘀𝗵 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗕𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗱, 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗱!- We have said this many times before as well. Too much shampooing will draw the natural oils out from your hair making it brittle and susceptible to breakage. Instead go for a well formulated beard wash product that is gentle on your beard and facial-hair-friendly for everyday use.
2. 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝟮-𝟯 𝗧𝗶𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗔 𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸- Use a proper conditioner which makes the beard soft and locks in the moisture. Beard oil works really well for this.
3. 𝗕𝗲 𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗨𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗔 𝗕𝗹𝗼𝘄 𝗗𝗿𝘆𝗲𝗿- Over the long term, blow drying your beard on high heat settings is bad for your beard . Instead, opt for low heat setting and medium fan speed with your blowdryer. We would recommend to let it air dry if you have time.
4. 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗔 𝗡𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗕𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗕𝗮𝗹𝗺 𝗼𝗿 𝗕𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗪𝗮𝘅- There are plethora of beard balms and wax in the market. They are both great at moisturising and styling your facial hair. Try to go for ones that have more natural ingredients, less scent and mainly free of harmful chemicals such as 𝗜𝘀𝗼𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗽𝘆𝗹 𝗔𝗹𝗰𝗼𝗵𝗼𝗹, 𝗦𝘂𝗹𝗽𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀, 𝗣𝗼𝗹𝘆𝗲𝘁𝗵𝘆𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗲 𝗚𝗹𝘆𝗰𝗼𝗹 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗵𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗲. These chemicals are proven to do more harm to your skin and hair in the long run.
5. 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗜𝘁 𝗟𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝗡𝗲𝗮𝘁- Maintaining a clean look is extremely important. Messy and dirty beard makes you look sloppy and you are not that. If you have a good barber, he should be able to trim your beard nicely for you to maintain that crisp look.
