How To Have A Better Beard

Having a good beard isn’t just about looking nice, it can also be part of a healthy lifestyle. Taking care of your beard is essential to maintaining its appearance, protecting it against the elements and keeping it healthy. To ensure that you have a better beard there are some basic steps to follow.

Firstly, washing your beard is of utmost importance. Using a specific beard wash with natural ingredients is preferable to regular shampoo because it is gentler on the skin and hair, and helps to condition and moisturize. When washing, massage the wash into your beard from root to tip and use your fingers to remove dirt and dirt. After washing, rinse well with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Secondly, combing your beard is also a must. A wooden comb is ideal as it helps to keep your beard neat and tidy. Start by combing the beard in small sections with the right-sized comb, brushing against the grain, before working up to wider strokes. This will help to evenly spread the natural oils your face produces through your beard to keep it looking shiny and healthy.

Thirdly, healthy oils are arguably the most important element to a better beard. Using a balm or beard oil with natural ingredients helps protect against the elements and provides essential moisture. This helps to nourish your beard hairs ensuring they remain strong, shiny and healthy while guarding against chapping, scratching and dryness. When applying, use enough to coat the whole beard from root to tip in a gentle but thorough massage. Once a routine of proper beard care is established, many men find that their beard grows faster and fuller.

Fourthly, trimming your beard is also essential. Depending on the look you’re going for, you should regularly trim your beard, sideburns and moustache. This helps give your beard a more even and professional look. Start by combing your beard in the direction of your choice, then trim in small sections, going as short or long as you prefer. Take care to maintain good grooming habits, using scissors and beard trimmers, and avoid cutting off too much.

Conditioning Your Beard

As with the hair on your head, conditioning is important for keeping your beard healthy and looking good. Conditioners with natural ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Argan Oil and Jojoba oil are ideal, as they are gentle and provide deep moisture. After washing and combing the beard, the conditioner should be applied from the roots to the tips. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off and patting your beard dry.

Styling Your Beard

Styling your beard is just as important as conditioning and trimming. Using a light hairspray or sculpting wax to shape and hold your beard, waxes and styling products with natural ingredients help to keep your beard looking neat and refined, without drying out your hair. Start by taking a small amount of the product and work it in your hand and then shape it around the beard using your fingers. This should be repeated until you achieve the desired look before using a comb to take things to the next level.

Maintaining Your Beard

When it comes to keeping your beard in top condition, it’s vital to maintain a regular care routine and use the right products. Regular washing, moisturizing and trimming help to keep your beard healthy and looking good. When maintaining the beard, it’s important to ensure that the skin beneath the beard is healthy too. Regular exfoliation with natural products helps to reduce excess oil and keep your skin in top condition.


Having a good beard takes dedication and effort, but it’s worth it in the long run. Regular washes, trims, styling, and conditioning are essential for maintaining the health of your beard. With the right products and a good care routine, you can achieve the perfect beard to take your grooming game to the next level.
