Beard care doesn’t just stop and end with growing it out. There is so much more you need to be doing to take proper care of it. Just like the hair on your head, it needs attention. At Signature Male, we want to make sure you always look and feel your best. But while we can help trim and shape your beard, it is up to you to keep and maintain it. So no matter what stage you’re in growing your beard, make sure to follow these steps of proper beard care.
Keeping Your Beard Clean Matters
Just because your beard is on a different part of your head besides the top doesn’t mean you should treat it differently. You need to wash it just like you would your hair. So when you shower, shampoo your beard at the same time. Consider a mild shampoo though, as it will come in contact with your face. You may also want to add in conditioner. The hair on your beard is thicker and coarser than on your head, but it can still soften up your facial hair.
After the shower, pat dry your beard with a towel. If you let it dry on its own it may begin to tangle. You should also comb your facial hair out – pick up a wide-toothed comb for this. You’ll avoid nasty tangles that can pull on your skin.
This is a personal preference, although highly recommended. Beard oil helps moisturize your facial hair. Due to its coarseness, it is difficult to take care of the necessary moisturizing in the shower. The oil will help improve the quality and strength of your hair. It also helps with the shape. This way, you have a bit more control over what your beard is doing on a daily basis.
At Signature Male, what we do is all about getting you looking and feeling your best. While we will always do our part, much of the work takes place at home. When growing out your beard, follow each of these tips to ensure a lush, thick and soft beard. After all, if you’re going to grow a beard, you might as well do it right!
