Beard Shampoo – is it really worth it? Let’s find out.
The most important distinction about beard shampoo and regular shampoo that you use on your head is that beard shampoo is produced especially for your facial hairs. The main difference between the two is that if you routinely use regular hair shampoos to wash your beard, then the chemicals in them will strip your beard of its natural oils. Not only that, but regular shampoo will dry out the skin underneath your beard hair as well, resulting in a dry, brittle and a coarse beard. Additionally, there is a considerable chance of your beard hair falling out, breaking or becoming acceptable to bald patches due to the weakened roots, along with a enhanced chance of having split ends.By using Spartans Den Premium Beard Shampoo, you will substantially reduce the opportunity of this happening.
Beard shampoo keeps in just enough of the good sebum oils that will make your mane look it’s absolute best.
When you introduce beard shampoo into your daily routine, you should see a much healthier looking beard and it will probably decrease the amount of beard oil or balm you use on a regular basis. So do yourself a big favor and stop using that bottle of generic shampoo and replace it with beard shampoo. In short,regular shampoo is just not a practical option for beardsmen who want to take good care of their beards and keep them in great shape.
How Often Should You Wash Your Beard?
The best general advice we can give you is to start by shampooing your beard 2-3 times a week. This should be adequate to keep your beard feeling soft and smelling great without overdoing it and reducing the chances of irritation from over-application. However, if your skin is naturally oily or you have a long beard, then you should shampoo your beard 3-4 times a week. Over time, you will learn what works best for you.
Now That I have shampooed my beard, what is the next step?
Once your beard has been washed you should use a top rated beard conditioner. It is similar to the conditioner that you’d use for your hair. Only, a beard conditioner does not use sulfates or other harsh chemicals that can inhibit the natural sebum production of the skin.
Like beard shampoo, ArtNaturals Beard Oil and Conditioner is a great softening oil, as the moisture-rich conditioning components treat your hair and skin the way it should be treated. Organic jojoba, Moroccan, Argan and Vitamin E oils combine to condition, soften, and hydrate your beard while eliminating itching, beardruff, and acne. All ingredients meet Art Naturals’ 100 percent natural standards. Paraben free and cruelty free! We highly recommend it.
Will You Always Need A Beard Shampoo?
No, you do not always need a beard shampoo. If you have a short beard, maintaining a natural balance of sebum oil by using a beard shampoo is not necessary.However, you will still have to wash your beard every few days. Beard oil will primarily take care of the itch and beardruff. But a top beard shampoo will help out the beard oil to fully nourish and hydrate your skin to get completely rid of beardruff.
Therefore, using a high quality beard shampoo along with a beard conditioner is necessary to having a healthy mane you will be proud to display.
How to Properly Wash Your Beard
Start by wetting your beard with warm water.In our opinion, the shower is the best place to wash your beard. Next,generously apply your beard shampoo and using your fingertips massage deeply into the beard making sure you reach the skin underneath your beard. By doing this, you are making sure the skin is well hydrated.Now. using your fingers, gently apply the shampoo evenly on your beard by moving the hair in all directions. Finally,completely rinse your beard with warm water, making sure that there is no beard shampoo residue remaining on your beard.
Tip: Only use warm water. Hot water will dry your skin and this will impinge proper beard growth. Also, continue using warm water to rinse the shampoo out of the beard too.
Drying Your Beard Properly
After washing your beard, make sure to dry it completely.This will prevent any skin irritation. Dry your beard by gently patting with a clean towel. Don’t be rough with your beard while drying as you can actually end up pulling hairs out, thus damaging your beard.
