Keeping a beard is popular these days, it has seriously become a fashion trend among men with lots of men joining the beard gang. It is really easy for your beard to become unkempt and unclean but with the right care, styling and grooming, beards can actually look good and attractive.
These beard care tricks will keep your facial hair looking resplendent.
Maintain a healthy diet: Hair grows when you’re receiving enough essential vitamins. You don’t need to eat anything special if you aren’t in a rush to grow your beard, just make sure it is a balanced, healthy diet. Fish is great for your hair. If you want to take a supplement some recommend Biotin, a b complex vitamin.
Keep it clean: Washing your beard is critical. Wash your face thoroughly with regular face wash and water every morning and every night. You don’t need anything too strong, but just something to cut through the oils that have built up. Make sure you also dry your face thoroughly. Have a clean towel and get as much of the water rung out of that mane as possible.
Don’t clean shave your neck: Contrary to popular belief a harsh, defined line under your beard does not give you the illusion of a jaw. Invest in a good beard trimmer, thin out the neck hair and blend into the beard. You can go as short as you like on the neck.
Beard butter, oils and balms: Products such as a beard oils & butters will moisturize the skin and the hair from the follicle out while also softening the hair and preventing dry flaky skin known as “beardruff” (beard dandruff). An added bonus is that these products also help to keep your beard hair nice and manageable. Rub in lightly with a boar bristle brush or massage in with your hands and then comb through with a wide toothed comb first a few times before switching to the finer toothed side for a finishing comb through. This leads to another deterrent of beard growth, without proper care these course dry hairs can end up pointing in all different directions and tend to make a beard look thin in areas, giving the illusion that a man cannot grow a full beard properly. A beard balm will provide a leave in conditioning effect while also providing a medium hold to maintain those unruly straggling hairs, providing a full and luscious man mane that smells great too.
Beard trimming: Frequently trim your hairs, not all hairs grow at the same length nor in the same direction. It is important to trim starting at the ears down to your neck in order to keep a nice level and even beard length throughout. These pointers will be sure to gain you some serious man points and bearded respect.
Establish a healthy routine: Applying beard oil, using wax, using aftershave, and cleaning your face are activities that you should be doing multiple times a week, along with maintaining a healthy diet. If you want your beard to feel healthy and smell good you should make a habit of following these steps.
