How do you take care of a beard? Many men think that a beard is self-evident. Nothing is less true! Good beard care is super important when you want to have a nice full beard. Just like you take care of your hair and scalp, your beard needs the same care. Our Wow Haircosmetics hair experts tell you how best to maintain a beard. With the 5 tips below you can create the best beard care for your beard.
1. Wash your beard with shampoo
A beautiful beard starts with clean skin, just like with your hair and scalp. The advice is to wash your beard 2 to 3 times a week with a shampoo for men. You can use a normal mild shampoo in your beard care. Our favorite is the 1992 by J.M. Keune Essential Shampoo. This is an all-in-one shampoo that you can use for hair, body and beard.
2. Don't wash your beard too hot
When you wash your beard, it is important to pay attention to the temperature of the water. When the water is too hot, your skin dries out and the quality of your beard hair deteriorates. It also ensures that your beard breaks down faster and you get an itchy feeling. To maintain your beard well, it is therefore a good idea to keep the shower around 38 degrees.
3. Use beard oil
A must have in your beard care is a good beard oil. We recommend the 1922 By J.M. Keune Beard Oil. Besides that the beard oil smells wonderful, it also gives extra care to beard and skin. A beard oil contains nutrients that make your beard stronger. It also makes your beard feel softer and shine. It prevents itching and irritation of the skin, and your beard becomes easier to style.
It is best to apply a beard oil immediately after washing. Then your hair cuticles are still open and it is easier for an oil to penetrate. With this you close the beard hairs nicely so that you protect your beard well against external influences.
4. Comb your beard
To maintain your beard, it is good to comb your beard regularly. It often happens that your beard hairs are a bit tousled and point in the wrong direction. This can cause a stinging and itching sensation. By combing your beard in the direction where the hair follicles go, you take the irritation away. Use a fine comb for this, so that you take all beard hairs with you while combing.
5. An extra beard care tip from our experts
Do you have a full beard and want to add some extra strength? Then you can use a beard balm. The 1922 By J.M. Keune Beard Balm is a light conditioner and gives a light firmness with a natural finish. This gives you the opportunity to style your beard more easily.
