When should I start beard care??
We always recommend not trimming or cutting your beard for at least three weeks. Not all hairs grow at the same rate. If you trim or cut your beard earlier, you run the risk of an uneven effect.
However, you can start cleaning and moisturizing your beard hairs in the first few weeks to minimize itching as much as possible. Use high-quality beard products for this. Beard shampoo and beard balm are essential. Beard balm is slightly less nourishing than beard oil, but it softens your skin and hair and is easier to apply.
Why is it important to care for your beard?
It may seem like men have it easy when it comes to facial care, especially when they choose to grow a beard or mustache. After all, they don't have to shave every day and the area that needs to be cared for seems smaller. But is that really the case? As far as we are concerned, not. Even a beard and mustache need the necessary care to look healthy and well-groomed..
Beard care goes beyond just growing a beard. That is why we offer all the products needed for good daily beard care in our store. Trust that when your beard looks good, the rest of your day will also get a positive boost!
How do I care for my beard??
Caring for a beard involves several aspects. You need to maintain your beard (trim, cut and shave), wash it with special beard shampoo, nourish it, moisturize it and style it. If you do this, we guarantee you will have a healthy beard.
If you decide to grow a beard, it is of course important to purchase the right beard products, you can do this with us!
Step 1: Maintain beard
You can maintain your beard with a beard trimmer, beard scissors and razor. Use beard scissors to cut away the longest tufts. Then use a trimmer on the shortest setting. Always start with the longest part of your beard. Now you can trim the entire beard.
Then go against the direction of hair growth again to remove any missed hairs. Repeat this with a shorter setting if necessary and continue until your beard is the desired length.
You use the razor to create the right line on your neck and remove all the hair from your throat and neck. Such a good razor should not be missing from your range of beard products.
Step 2: Wash beard
Only wash your beard with beard shampoo or beard soap. This is a mild shampoo that removes dirt and excess sebum from your beard without washing away all the natural (and especially healthy) oils. This prevents dry skin under your beard, dry and hard beard hairs and therefore a lot of itching and irritation. We recommend cleaning your beard two to three times a week. This may vary depending on your lifestyle. If you sweat a lot or get a lot of dirt on your beard due to work, for example, wash it more often and follow your own washing routine.
Step 3: Grooming the beard
Nourishing your beard is necessary to maintain a healthy, soft and beautiful beard. The underlying skin provides the hair with sufficient fat. But when your beard hairs grow, that's not enough. This results in dry skin and dry beard hairs. You always nourish your beard after washing, when your beard is dry again.
You can then apply a good beard oil to your beard. For longer beards, you can use a beard comb to evenly distribute the oil. For shorter beards, your hands are sufficient. A beard brush can also be used. If your beard is still very short and beard oil feels too greasy, you can use a beard balm. This is easy to apply and slightly less intense than beard oil.
Step 4: Styling beard
If your beard is long enough to style, you can use beard balm to shape your beard. Apply a little beard balm to your beard and then comb your beard into the desired shape. For a stronger fixation you can use beard wax..
Why are beard hairs different from scalp hairs?
The difference between beard hair and scalp hair has to do with hormones, hair follicles and the properties of the skin. Beard hairs are affected by testosterone, the main male hormone.
- Hair follicles: The hair follicles on the face respond differently to testosterone than the hair follicles on the scalp. As a result, beard hairs often grow thicker, more curled and uneven in thickness. This can result in a more rough and stiff texture of the beard hairs.
- Facial Skin Sensitivity: The skin of the face is more sensitive to testosterone than the scalp. This is because the receptors in the facial skin respond more strongly to this hormone. This can lead to the growth of terminal hair in the beard area.
- Fat content and pH value: The scalp produces more sebum than the skin on the face. This often makes the scalp oilier. The higher fat content and lower pH value of the scalp serve as protection against external influences. Using scalp care products on the beard can dry out the facial skin and make it more susceptible to bacteria.
For these reasons, it is important to use special beard care products. These products are specifically formulated to address the unique needs of beard hair and sensitive facial skin.
My budding beard is itchy
It is very normal for a beard to itch. This is because the growing beard hairs are a bit stiffer in the beginning and can irritate. Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce the itching:
- Clean your beard regularly: Use a mild beard shampoo to keep your beard clean. This helps to remove dirt, oils and dead skin cells that can make itching worse.
- Hydrate your beard hair and skin: Use a good beard oil daily to hydrate your beard hair and the underlying skin. Beard oil helps to keep the beard hairs soft and prevents flaking and itching.
- Use a beard balm: Beard balm can help reduce itching and better style the beard hairs. Choose a beard balm with natural ingredients that soothe the skin and soften the beard hairs.
- Trim your beard regularly: Trimming your beard can help keep the length of the hairs even and prevent them from pricking the skin. Make sure you use a good beard trimmer or scissors to neatly trim your beard.
- Be patient: Itching in the early stages of beard growth is often temporary. As your beard grows longer, the hairs will become softer and the itching will decrease. Give your beard time to grow and use the right care products in the meantime.
Remember that grooming a beard is a process and it may take some time to find the right routine and products that work for you. Stay consistent with your care and experiment with different products until you get the best results.
