Yes! There is such a thing as washing your beard too often. And, of course, because we want to be kissable, we know there is such a thing as not washing our beard often enough. Beard grooming has its own rules and best practices.
In general, the prevailing wisdom is to wash your beard 1-2 times a week. Unless there’s a soup incident, try to keep to this general rule or you risk stripping your natural oils and drying out your beard hair and your skin. Dry beard hair looks dull, becomes brittle, and can become difficult to groom. Dry skin can lead to flakes that look like dandruff. They’ll pollute your beard and leave snowy-looking powder on your shirts. Not appealing or attractive.
If you live or work in an environment that warrants daily beard washing, there are shampoo options. Use warm water, not water that’s overly hot. Use a gentle shampoo that won’t dry your mane. If you notice your beard hair seems like it’s drying out, stop using that shampoo and return to 1-2 washings a week until you find a new gentle shampoo that won’t be overly drying.
You can also consider a light leave-in conditioner, but these often become flaky throughout the day. Or conditioners can become heavy, weighing down your beard. Instead, apply a light beard oil each day to keep skin healthy and hair moisturized. As long as it’s a light oil that won’t weigh hair down, you’ll find that the right beard oil will moisturize and nourish skin and hair, while keeping your beard fresh and clean.
BEARD SENSE is a natural beard oil with two fresh scents. It’s made from premium essential oils that revitalize, moisturize, condition, and style your beard without leaving an oily residue.
Finally, one to two times a week your beard could use a deep conditioning. Choosing an oil, likeBEARD SENSE as your deep conditioner can do more than just leave your beard feeling light and refreshed. Gently heat the oil, run it through all your beard hair, instead of just gently applying it to your beard. Leave that warm oil on your beard for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse with a light shampoo, towel dry, and style as usual.
