If you’ve been growing a beard for a while, then we’re sure you know it takes some hard work and dedication to keep it in pristine condition. On the contrary, if you’re new to growing a beard you may have experienced some sort of itchiness, dryness or flaking and are looking to relieve it. Whichever stage of beard you’re in, we guarantee you’ve pondered how to properly clean it. The answer is: Beard Wash! Although there is soap and generic shampoo readily available in stores (and your shower), we promise you that beard wash will change your view on beard cleansing.
This is a very common question we see being asked by customers. They wonder what beard wash is and whether it’s worth the investment. Because if shampoo cleans your hair, then it obviously cleans your beard right? Well, you wouldn’t use pet shampoo on your own hair, would you? Believe it or not, the hair on your head is quite different than the hair on your face. Head hair often becomes greasy due to the sebum production from our scalp. We all can agree that greasy hair isn’t too desirable. That’s why we need to cleanse our hair with something that strips our skin/follicle of the excess oil, like generic shampoo. Beard hair, on the other hand, is susceptible to dryness and breakage. It needs that sebum production to grow and stay healthy. That’s where the beard wash takes the crown.
Although some product purposes are simply marketing tactics, there are tons of items out there that are specifically designed and developed for the thing they cater to. Beard Wash is one of them! It created to nurture and hydrate beard hair, while cleansing it from bacteria and germs. A good beard wash will be free of any chemicals, parabens and harsh stripping agents. Our Beard Wash is made with coconut oil properties so that it conditions the hair and skin while successfully keeping it clean, soft and tamed.
Another perk of using beard wash is that it helps eliminate the dryness and flaking that normally plagues your beard mid-growth. Don’t believe us? Try it out for yourself! We bet you’ll notice the difference.
Well, this is a difficult question that requires a subjective answer. It really all depends on what type of rugged mug you have. If your beard is on the shorter side and not incredibly oily, you may want to start with washing just two times a week. If you have a longer, oily beard then you can probably increase that to three times a week. It will all heavily depend on the type of hair you have (curly, thick, oily, coarse, dry) and the length of your beard. However, one pointer to keep in mind is that you won’t want to use it every single day. By consistently over-cleansing your beard, you’ll end up stripping your skin of its natural oil production.
The best way to start up the habit of using beard wash is to just keep it in your shower and reach for it when you feel like your face blanket could use a nice, deep cleaning.
It doesn’t have to be! If you want to maximize your grooming method and keep that beard looking fresh, then consider following up your beard wash with some beard oil or balm. The combination of products will keep your hair softer, smoother and healthier. You can browse some of our products here.
