Giving your beard a trim three times a week will get rid of any dry ends and keep your beard looking healthy and fresh.
How to trim:
Comb your beard neatly into place, removing any knots. Using a good pair of beard scissors, trim any out of place hairs. Doing this regularly will keep your beard looking clean and styled. Beard care will be more successful on a unified beard.
Using a beard wash, give your beard a gentle clean.
The nutrients in the beard wash will begin to moisturize the beard hairs whilst removing any unwanted dirt. Your beard care products will work far better on a refreshed, clean beard.
Beard wash will get down to the root of your beard hair and get rid of any excess oils, leaving your beard feeling smoother and more supple.
After cleaning your beard hair, give it an in shower condition.
Apply a generous amount of conditioner from root to end. Leave the conditioner for around 30 seconds and then wash away. This will begin to moisturise the hair and add some well-needed oils.
You should wash and condition your beard at least three times a week. If your beard is extremely dry, try it more often for the first week to give it a boost back to health.
Sometimes your beard becomes dry and crisp as they are promoted by testosterone.
In order to combat this, the beard hairs attempt to feed themselves with nutrients from the skin underneath. As the hairs grow longer it becomes harder to pull the natural skin oils through the whole length of each hair.
Your beard is left bone dry and brittle.
This is also not good for your skin. As the hair steals the skin's nutrients to feed itself, the skin becomes irritated and sore. This results in itchy, red, unhappy skin.
Beard oil treats your hair with the natural oils it lacks, leaving it smooth and soft. It no longer has to feed from the skin beneath.
