Your beard's needs
Facial hair care includes washing, trimming, and hydrating. If you fail to keep up with your beard care, your beard could become dry and scruffy, and its ends could split. If you have a long beard, it could become tangled and even get beardruff, or beard dandruff.
To keep your beard tidy and neat, you need to clean and comb it regularly and trim it as needed. Also, your skin and hair strands should stay hydrated. A good beard care kit will help you keep up with your mane's needs. And while it sounds like a lot of work, it's really not.
A beard kit can be a great gift for yourself or a bearded friend or family member.
The groomer in your beard care kit
A well-sculpted beard is achieved using a straight razor
, which is a must. You'll be able to trim safely and achieve your desired look if you take your time. Use shaving cream and a hot towel to open your pores before you work on your beard to prevent uncomfortable ingrown hairs. For the finishing touch, a pair of beard scissors can be a great tool to work on the fine details.
Keeping it clean
The few minutes allotted for daily personal grooming are precious. While you shouldn't be planning on trimming every day (but most likely on a weekly basis) other types of beard care can be tackled while taking your daily shower.
For washing your beard, it's recommended to use a beard soap or beard shampoo and not just your regular body soap. Specially made soaps can keep your beard from becoming dry and brittle.
