How to Take Care of Your Beard
Are you having difficulty keeping your facial hair looking good? Is this the first time you have grown out a beard? Has your facial hair been growing in patchy patterns? We know the struggle. It can be challenging to style your beard or keep it looking put together, especially during difficult and unprecedented times. We also know how tough it can get growing out a beard and it looking patchy. That is why we are here to help, as we will be going over tips on how to take care of your beard.
First things first, you must make sure to keep your beard clean. Cleaning your beard should consist of washing it out with beard soap or shampoo and water. This will ensure that it is properly ready to be groomed and taken care of.
After washing your beard, you must brush out your beard to make sure there are no tangles. For this, we recommend getting yourself a beard comb or brush. A beard comb or brush can be used to evenly spread any product through your beard to help with styling, grooming, and will essentially help you keep your beard looking full. Speaking of fuller beard, another product we recommend to have on hand are hair fibers. Hair fibers help to keep facial hair looking fuller and thicker while concealing any patchy or thinning areas you may have. However, for best results, hair fibers should be applied once the beard is styled and groomed. We recommend the hair fibers from Fiberbond, as their Keratin Thickening Fibers come in 8 different artisanally crafted colors and easily blend into your existing hair to instantly create the illusion of more facial hair. They can also be used to cover grays and can be used on the hair on your head. Not only do these hair fibers use FormaFlex technology to statically attach to your hair, so that you won't have to worry about them moving or staying in place, but they come off easily with beard shampoo or regular shampoo.
Styling and Care
For the beard to remain looking spiffy, you must trim your beard. Even if you don't have a lot of facial hair, it is essential to trim every other week or whenever needed to ensure that the hair looks healthy and even. To trim your beard, we recommend using a mirror and scissors instead of a trimmer. This is because trimmers may lead to split ends, while scissors give you more control in shape and look you wish to achieve. When trimming your beard, it is essential to use a beard comb or brush to keep the hairs in place and help cut the uneven or loose hairs. While cutting, you should remember to follow your face's natural contour and try to keep the hairs at an equal length. For styling, you should use beard oil. Not only do beard oils help condition your beard, but it helps keep it moisturized, shiny, and soft, and even helps fight irritation. Beard oils tend to be made of natural oils and ingredients, so they may even help with growth, just make sure not to use too much, and that you are also massaging the oil into your beard and skin. If you are not a fan of beard oil, beard wax is another option. Beard wax is especially popular for styling because it adds hold, shape, and texture to keep the beard in place and looking sharp. Simply apply a small amount to your hands and style as usual. We suggest exfoliating at least once or twice a week, so that product buildup does not occur, and keep your facial hair clean and proper.
Lastly, if you are struggling growing out your beard, you can take a couple of steps, including staying healthy, proper grooming, and staying hydrated. The reason why these steps are essential is that if you are healthy and take proper care of your body; such as making sure that you are hydrated and are providing your body with the right nutrients and vitamins, not only will you be healthier, but your beard will grow healthier as well. Taking care of your beard through grooming will also help keep facial hair in line to grow faster and healthier over time. To learn more about hair loss or hair grooming, visit our blog page here.
