Do I Need Beard Wash And How Often Should I Use It?
With the wide array of men’s beard products available on the market today, it’s understandable to be a little intimidated by the conflicting info out there about when you how frequently you should wash, or whether you should at all depending on your hair length and type. We’re here to help you simplify that process and see a noticeable a difference in your beard almost immediately.
Here’s the simple answer: you absolutely need to wash your beard, just like any other part of your body. The difference is that regular face wash and shampoo just isn’t made for beard hair, often containing a number of different sulfates, parabens and silicones. Water alone won’t remove the oil and dirt that builds up over time, especially if you’re active or use beard balm regularly (which is recommended).
Some might say that washing it regularly dries out beards, or makes them frizzy. While it’s true that the skin on your face is more sensitive, making much more susceptible to over-washing, it’s generally recommended that you shouldn’t wash it every day to avoid this entirely. Washing every 2-3 days, or after a work out, has left me with noticeably softer and fuller-looking beard hair, makes it easier to tame with a comb/oil after I shower.
Lastly, be gentle when you’re getting in there. I’ve found an excellent resource that outlines a proper washing technique. So now that you’re ready to keep your beard pistine and clean for the ladies, which product should you buy? Well depending on your hair type and length, certain products might suit your style better. Products containing citrus juices really help clean between the hairs removing any excess oils. While some has exotic oils and butters which soften the hairs and keep them tame.
