With all the products on the market that’re specifically designed for facial hair, beard grooming is now practically a no-brainer. These five beard care tips will keep you looking good enough to eat…almost 😉 That said, here are Beard Grooming Tips: 5 Ways to Grow a Great Beard.
Wash It Regularly
This is especially important in the early stages of growth, when trapped food and dry skin cells can make the itchiness worse. Wash your beard several times each week with a specialized cleanser, like Chicks Dig Beards Beard Wash, then be sure to gently pat it dry. Heavy toweling can lead to split ends and ‘frizzy beard’ .
Use a Good Beard Oil
I’ve probably said it a thousand times, and I’ll say it another thousand times (it’s that important): Nothing ‘relaxes’ a beard like regular use of beard oil. There are many varieties to choose from, in a range of manly scents, but all of them will condition hairs to make them softer and shinier. If you want a smell that the ladies seem to like, Chicks Dig Beards Citrus Sativa Beard Oil is a best seller.
Don’t Blow Dry It
A blow dryer is great for hair, but it has a tendency to be somewhat drying to the hair AND the scalp.
That said, there’s no way, no matter how ‘gently’ you use it, that a blow dryer isn’t going to blow any moisture out of your beard, and make a crusty mess out of the underlying skin.
Once you’ve finished washing your beard, simply pat it dry with a clean towel, and apply a good beard oil. If it’s particularly dry, try doing a once or twice a week deep conditioning with a moisturizing beard balm. Chicks Dig Beards No Mess Beard Balm is a hit with customers, as it’s super moisturizing, and it doesn’t require you to dip your fingers into a tin of wax for application.
Use Beard Care Products Made from Natural Ingredients
Most beard oils are formulated with a carrier oil and another oil. Avoid products that contain silicone, as it tends to make the hair look shiny but doesn’t actually give the hair any nourishment. Chicks Dig Beards Beard Oils contain macadamia nut oil, which helps strengthen and nourish hair follicles.
Keep it Trimmed
Ignoring simple grooming means that your beard will not only look terrible, but it’ll smell awful too. Which will keep women (and men) away in droves.
“Keep it Neat” simply means maintaining simple hygiene techniques; washing, using a lightly scented beard oil/balm, and trimming on a regular basis. Your best bet is to invest in a decent beard trimmer. No idea how to trim your beard? If there’s one thing you should know about the “www” (if you don’t already), it’s that you can learn any-damn-thing you want on it (and I mean ANY thing). Head over to YouTube, and search “how to trim your beard”, and BOOM…endless video tutorials on the subject 🙂
