As cool, flawless, and glorious your beard inspos might look, getting your beard to that level requires a certain amount of commitment in terms of beard care. Taking care of your beard is a responsibility. Letting your beard grow is the easy part, but maintaining it and keeping it well-cared for is another story. That is why Barbudos usually have a daily beard routine. That’s right, daily beard routine. Like a skincare routine, this must be done on the daily. You’re probably new to the journey, but don’t worry! We’re here to help you get started with your own daily beard routine.
Why get a separate shampoo for your beard when you already have regular shampoo? Hair is hair, it’ll still do the job, right? WRONG. Hair shampoos are for, guess what? Your hair that is on top of your head and they are formulated for that purpose, just as beard shampoos are formulated for your beard. Beard shampoos are formulated to combat common beard problems and to nourish your beard - just as your regular shampoo is for your hair. It’s important to be aware that both shampoos serve different needs, problems and purposes. If you thought that all shampoos are the same, at least now you know that hair shampoo could potentially harm the health of your beard.
It is recommended to wash the beard two to three times a week. Be sure to take note because over-washing isn’t healthy either. It may cause itchiness, dandruff, and even skin inflammation.
Your beard gets tangled often? Sometimes even rebellious? Maybe you need to fix-up after your lunch break? What could be the solution? You guessed it: combing! This is probably a no-brainer but it's the basics that make all the difference. You could be finger-combing your beard, and maybe that’s enough (for now). But it’s always best to invest in a good comb or two (we got a couple you might like) for best results. Combing is essential in styling, you know.
You’re probably tired of hearing this, but...don’t forget to moisturize! Hydration is a must-do in every beard care routine. To know more about just how importation hydration is to your beard, read our “The Importance of Moisturizing Your Beard” post. Barba Brada’s beard serums (both Essential and Premium collections) give you a nice aroma and a soft, controlled shine for your beard.
It’s important to pay attention to your beard just how much beard oil you might need. In the case of longer beards, be sure to put more oil on the ends of your beard (we also wrote about how to apply beard oil).
This is not essential, but a good addition to your beard routine. This is where our beard wax can come in handy for that final touch! Style your beard any way you see fit, and rock it with confidence!
There is no one-size-fits-all. Beard routines vary from person to person, and might even change over time. At the end of the day, finding a beard care routine that suits your beard demands is what matters. If you have any questions or issues about yours, feel free to reach us. We got your back Barbudo!
