Many different beard blogs or beard enthusiastics will tell you, “You need beard shampoo, beard oil, beard Wax , a beard brush and many other beardy items!” These are all very helpful towards the maintenance of beards, but I find all of this can come down to personal preference.
Over the past few weeks, especially since returning from a relaxing holiday, I have personally been getting back to normality but attempting to focus on myself, with work, gym health and other bits too. Don’t worry the beard has not been left out!
I believe we can always benefit to try something new, so I have been using beard shampoo and honestly I can say, I have seen a difference in the texture and appearance! Originally I was sceptical and reserved thinking it could be another product to just sell (to bearded people). I found my beard gaining a nice smell, and definitely having a softer, smoother feel to it. ( Always a bonus for people that play or stroke their beard throughout the day) Before the beard shampoo, the beard was getting a wire feel to it, very similar to when you leave the swimming pool with clorine in your hair.
Shampooing my beard is not the only new thing, I have to admit before these 2 weeks I was forgetting to apply beard oil on a daily basis. I have remembered to apply it for the last two weeks, along with a good brush and it has made a difference. I’m aiming to continue shampooing and applying beard oil regularly.
So that’s enough from me this week, but I’d like to hear how you maintenance your beard and of there any tricks or tips you have found out. Please comment or message me. My email is now up, Twitter is active and obviously Instagram will continue to post pictures.
