Products for That Thick, Shiny, Long Beard

Beard maintenance falls between hair care and skin care as you have to take care of the hair as well as the skin underneath. Regardless of the length of your beard, you should use products that are good for both the skin and hair and don’t cause any damage.

The basic tenets of skincare also apply here; cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliating, and protecting. You might be tempted to use the same shampoo on your beard that you use on your head, but these shampoos are too harsh on the facial skin that can cause dryness and itching. You can use beard washes that are designed to clean both your facial skin and hair.

Beards need as much attention as your hairstyle; they require styling and trimming to stay in the best shape. There is beard balm that can keep your beard from looking disheveled and messy.

Though there is a lot of information available on the internet about Beard Care essentials, picking the right one can become overwhelming. Here are some ways to spot a bargain.

  • Oil Content

Beard oils come in two types; essential oils and those that act as the carrier. Carrier oils hold the formula together and keep the specific formula balanced and help essential oils to do their job in nourishing. Make sure the beard oil you are buying has a balance of both. Keep in mind that different oils are designed to deal with different issues. There are oils for oily, dry, normal, and sensitive skin. For acne-prone oil, pick an oil that contains grapeseed or jojoba oil.

  • Ingredients

Everyone has a unique skin type which reacts to different ingredients in a different way. Therefore, you must check the ingredients of the product before purchasing it. Some elements can have a bad effect on your skin. Before you decide on something, identify your hair and skin type so that you can pick the formula that is most suitable for you. Also, try to find a product with all-natural ingredients as they are safe to use and nourish your beard better.

  • Choose Safety over Price

Though a cheap product will save you some money, the bad quality and harmful ingredients can do irreparable damage. Buy from a brand that follows quality regulations and has a safety assessment certification. These products may be pricier and will not put your well-being at stake.

  • Fragrance-Free

You might be tempted to buy something that leaves you smelling like a dream but don’t let the products with fragrance oil fool you. Firstly, these oils can make your skin dry. Secondly, fragrance oils are a major cause of possible genotoxic and mutagenic effects. Whereas essential oils are completely organic and are extracted from plants, and have healing properties. Essential oils are expensive, which might make these products a little expensive as well.
