How to take care of the beard?

Today we're going to see the rules to follow on how to take care of and what to put on your beard, the products to use and some tips to make it grow healthy and beautiful.

In fact, taking care of the beard is very important for men, both for those who want to make it grow and for those who already have a nice long beard and would like to give it a tidier look.

All it takes are simple suggestions and buying the right products!

The beard is trendy and gives the wearer an interesting look, it is true, but it involves many annoyances: in the growth phase it causes itching, it gets dirty easily, it can grow in patches and, if not trimmed regularly, it is ruined, just like hair.

In short, it's not enough to stop shaving and let it grow!

In fact, not everyone knows that it is important to wash your beard, brush it every day and trim it regularly.

Here are some tips to follow

The first thing to do to grow a beard is to arm yourself with a lot of patience! Before giving it the desired shape, in fact, you need to reach a good length. Let it grow for 3 or 4 months, don't cut it. You don't even need to check it. In this way you will also solve the problem of patchy beard, because slowly all the empty areas will be covered by healthy, strong and thick hair. Ignore the itchiness, due to the fact that the skin has to get used to the presence of all that hair, and do not give in to the temptation to shave!

Washing your beard is essential, because dirt accumulates between the hairs, such as food residues, dust, pollen, and consequently bacteria.

We advise you to use a specific beard shampoo, which can remove the excess sebum accumulated without drying it too much. You can use our beard shampoo every day too!

If you have a very long beard, also apply a conditioner to soften it and untie the knots.

If, on the other hand, you have a short beard, you can also use a common soap.

After washing your beard, pat your face dry with a towel. Humidity can damage the skin, dry it out more than necessary and, therefore, ruin the growth of the beard, ruining all your efforts.

Warning: you don't have to squeeze or rub the lengths, just dab.

Another very important rule: brush your beard every day, to comb the hair and give it the right direction, remove dust and other dirt residues, evenly distribute the natural oils produced by the skin and untie the knots.

Once you have reached a length of 4-5cm, you can start shaping your beard, choosing a suitable style. You need to trim it periodically to make it symmetrical, because not all hairs grow at the same rate or evenly.

We also recommend shaving the tops of your cheeks and the area under the neck, giving them a U shape, to give your beard a neater look.

If you use an electric razor, set the shave to a maximum of one centimetre: it will take longer, but you will be able to work with greater precision.

When your beard is long enough, you can start thinking about the style in which you want to wear it. Obviously, you have to take into account the world in which your fuzz grows. There are different types of beards, as well as different face shapes, and everyone must find the solution that best suits their needs.

To prevent the formation of grease and dandruff on the face and to soften the hair, apply a few drops of beard oil both on the skin and on the hair or, alternatively, use a beard shampoo before proceeding with shaving.

After using the razor or shaping the beard with scissors, it is possible to notice the onset of redness and itching. A good solution is to refresh the part with a good aftershave. Contact with a fresh product soothes the discomfort quickly.

Beard shampoo: what it is and what it is for

The beard cleansing shampoo has the same function as the one used every day for the hair. There is, however, a big difference: its formulation is less aggressive, because it comes into contact with the skin of the face, which is more delicate than that of the scalp, and because it does not have to act radically on the sebum of the hair. , which however leaves it clean, soft and hydrated.

In summer, therefore, it is very important to use it, both to avoid irritation and redness due to excessive sweat, and to defend the beard from the action of negative external agents, such as excessive heat or dry air.
