How To Be A ‘Bearded’ Gentleman!

Published

on


The same way, keeping a natural hair is not only about growing and leaving it, having amazing beards that people will admire also requires effort on your side. It requires even more effort than the hair on your head would require. There is certain maintenance which has to be done which includes: washing, trimming, conditioning, and brushing.

Wash it

Just like the hair on your head, your beards requires washing and nurturing. The question that is often asked is how often should one wash one’s beard? What most people don’t know is that the frequency of washing will be determined by the length of your beards.

If you have short beards, then you can give it exactly the same treatment as the hair on your head which means you can wash with shampoo every day and use the same shampoo and conditioner you use for your hair. The logic is that when you have a short beard which is frequently trimmed, the damaged one can easily be cut off before it is noticed.

A longer beard actually requires more effort, washing everyday may be drying, so it’s advisable you apply conditioner 3-4 times a week and shampoo once every week.

Condition it

The key to loving your beards is keeping it soft all the time. A hard, scratchy beard will definitely be a turn off and it is a major challenge for most people who keep beards, without taking care of it. The way to avoid that is to use a beard conditioner. A good conditioner will moisturize your beard, and keep it healthy. A conditioner also has the added benefit of working almost like a styling gel, so you can style your beards just the way you want it and achieve your desired look.

Oil it

Getting a beard oil is an essential for a beardsman. Beard oil is one of the most essential products you will need on this journey as it has an awesome blend of essential oils which will make your beards look incredibly good. Another benefit of the oil is that it takes care of beardruff and other itching you may experience.

Brush it

Brushing helps to keep your beard from getting tangled and unattractive, it  also help spread the beard oil you’re using as well as your natural face oils to keep your beard as healthy as possible. Beard experts advise you brush no more than once a day, as overdoing it may kill your beard as it will create split ends and damage the facial hair you have worked so hard to grow. For best results, brush after you shower, it will make your beard look nice and tidy for the day.

Trim It

If you do not want to look like someone coming from the jungle, you should make it a routine to occasionally trim your beards. As noted earlier, beards do not always grow evenly and will also require to be put in perfect shape as it grows out, hence the need for trimming.  You will need your clipper to trim to your preferred length, starting from the most to the less hairy part to avoid chopping off everything you have worked hard to keep.
