Beard Maintenance Is Always Worth The Investment
With the hundreds of awesome beard grooming products on the market nowadays, keeping your beard perfectly maintained has never been easier. There are a lot of differences between proper care of your hair and proper care of your beard. Below you’ll find an extensive guide on different products and tips geared towards beard maintenance.
Beard Oil – The King For Beard Maintenance
It may sound strange at first, but beard oil is really important for healthy beard growth. Unlike your head hair, which is best cleaned by removing natural oils, beards are different and need added oils to stay moisturized. Beards that are not treated with a good oil tend to look less well-kept.
At ThatchFace, we specialize in beard oils, which are made using organic ingredients to create a lightweight and fresh smelling oil to moisturise and maintain your beard. Our product range is focused on 3 unique combinations that cater to many personal tastes and features Argan oil which is widely accepted as fantastic for hair conditioning.
- Our Got Wood beard oil draws on the scents of cedarwood, sandalwood, pine needle and a hint of lime to give a warm and masculine scent.
- Wild Zest beard oil features lemon, lime, orange and ylang ylang to give a vibrant citrus burst to your beard.
- Full Minty beard oil focuses on the freshness of peppermint paired with eucalyptus to bring the best out of your beard and skin.
Everyone is different; some men prefer to perform this task themselves, while others insist on having it done professionally. For those DIY beardkeepers, trimming is an important routine for beard maintenance. Electric beard trimmers tend to be the easiest to work with, and there are a ton of different ones to choose from, depending on your individual needs. There are electric trimmers that can do the job wet or dry, but be careful trimming while the beard is wet – you’re more likely to trim it shorter than you’d like. Those of us who are more old-fashioned may even prefer to trim using only scissors (though we recommend using the professional kind that are actually made for this task).
The skin on your face is more sensitive than the skin on your scalp, which is one of the reasons why it’s recommended to use beard shampoo instead of regular shampoo. You don’t need to wash your beard every day, but doing so regularly will help keep it moisturized, clean, and manageable. If your beard is longer, make sure to scrub the soap all the way down to the skin, and rinse thoroughly to avoid residue.
Brushing your beard regularly is also important. A brush that is made specifically for beards is best, as they typically use boar bristles. Using this type of brush helps keep the beard soft and disperses natural oils evenly. Regular brushing also helps ensure uniformity, i.e., it helps your hairs all grow in the same direction.
