Every guy that has a beard wants to make sure it looks awesome. If you are like me, you probably are constantly doing research to figure out what the best course of action is. To make you life a little easier, I came up with a few things to ensure that your beard is always looking good. Check out these five easy steps to make sure our beard remains healthy and grows to its fullest potential.
Step #1 - Clean as needed but not too much
Just like your standard grooming practices (showering, brushing your teeth, etc), grooming your beard should by part of your daily routine. Of course we all want to be clean and hygienic but when it comes to your beard, constant shampooing can do more harm than good. Individuals that tend to shampoo their beard on a daily basis often strip the oils that are essential for healthy growth. I would recommend shampooing your beard no more then 2-3 times a week unless your lifestyle requires that your shampoo it more often. I also recommend using a beard conditioner after you shampoo to give your beard the important oils, vitamins, and nutrients it needs to remain healthy.
Step #2 - Beard Oil is your best friend when it comes to dryness, flakes, and itchiness
When you are going a beard, you will most likely experience a degree of itching. To minimize this issue, use a quality beard oil. Beard oils are often used to prevent dryness, add vital nutrients, and promote natural beard growth.
Step #3 - Beard balm is good for added shine and control
As your beard continues to grow, you may it may become harder to groom and maintain. At this point, you may want to consider using a beard balm. A beard balm is similar to a beard oil however, it also contains various types of natural butters (shea, mango, cocoa, etc) and beeswax which add hold and allows the user to better style their beard. Beard balms are heavier than oils and help give men a clean and well groomed appearance.
Step #4 - Eat healthy
Ever heard the term “You are what you eat”? Well, many health experts believe that this saying is true. If you want a nice and healthy beard, make efforts to eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Your body will use the nutrients to improve your hair quality thus making your beard fuller and healthier.
