The Beard Experience & Grooming Tips for Men
Grooming Tips to grow Head Turning, healthy looking beards.
Beards are a trend right now and that trend is not slowing down anytime soon, it’s growing. In fact, beards are pretty much used in marketing campaigns all over (hey Shea Moisture) because lets be honest, we absolutely love beards right! But as much as we adore them, who’s responsible for the proper care of these glorious beards that allows men and their beards to flourish for our viewing consumption? Just a few years ago men were just out here growing beards and having their barbers tend to them; and if you ask most men, setting an appointment for a “beard treatment” isn’t the first, second or third thing people think of in regards to the upkeep of beards. However, there are some amazing estheticians and lady barbers who are passionate, equipped with training and who also have continuously educated themselves on hair and skin, particularly catering to men…and their beards.
Moisturize your beards with a beard butter daily rather than an oil. Although there are many benefits to a daily beard oil, for optimal moisturizing, a beard butter tends to be lighter and seeps down into the pores without clogging them. Make sure you work the butter deep into the skin underneath your beard for optimal benefits.
2. USE A BEARD WASH
Washing your beards with shampoo may get it clean, but could also be doing damage at the same time. Often these products aren’t formulated with the key ingredients needed for a healthy beard. Using an all natural beard wash on your beard will do your beard justice in not only cleaning but aiding in maintaining its moisture too.
Tip: Only wash your beard 2 to 3 times per week. Over washing can cause your hair to dry out more, defeating the purpose and growth..
3. COMB THAT BEARD
Combing your beard are more preferable if you have a bountiful beard but brushing stimulate blood to those hair follicles. Beware, brushing especially with the wrong kind of bristle brush can pop or pull out hairs causing ingrown hair. Combing can be less harsh approach and allows you to start from the root, stimulating the follicles to enhance growth is key.
Weekly exfoliating assists in the sloughing off of dead skin cells. The build up of dead skin cells can lead to oily clogged pores. Exfoliating also promotes healthy skin as well as hair growth.
