THE BEST WAY TO WASH YOUR BEARD Life is good. Your beard is growing in great, and your boss is being unusually cool. As you stroll through the office in route to recharge your coffee; it hits you…a combination of stale beer, that steak you ate on Saturday, and a splash of old perfume. What.The.Hell. It’s Tuesday, but your beard smells like the weekend. As a well-groomed gentleman, this is clearly not okay. We receive a lot of questions about beard care and maintenance. One of the most popular questions relates to cleaning the beard. What is the best beard shampoo? Is there a great natural beard wash? How do I properly wash my beard?
Washing your beard is easy, but if not done properly, it will dry your beard out and make it more abrasive. Wash your face every day, but not your beard. As men, we have naturally oily skin. To keep things clear and healthy, you should wash your face twice a day. Once in the morning and once before bed. Your beard is a different story. …

Benefits of Using A Beard Comb & A Beard Brush

You're on a journey to look the part and have an awesome, maintained beard. We've introduced your steps to Washing, Conditioning, Hydrating and Styling your beard, and you're finally on the last step of the care routine, which is to comb and brush your beard to your ideal finish.

So what is the role of a Beard Comb?

One of the biggest benefits of combing your beard is that it will style it. This doesn’t apply to short stubble or new facial hair, but when it grows out longer, a comb is perfect for styling it. Essentially after applying beard balm, you can shape and straighten it in whatever way you want.

Choose a Beard Comb according to the length and thickness of your hair, and how curly it is. The longer and thicker the beard, the wider the spacing between the teeth of the comb needs to be. The Beard shed's Beard Comb is perfect for medium to long beards and Big Red - No.7 Beard Comb is suitable for all beards. 

A Beard Comb also comes in handy when you want to remove stray hairs from your beard with scissors. Using a Beard Comb gives you excellent precision and control, allowing you to trim or cut your beard, especially if your beard is curly.

So what is a Beard Brush? 

The biggest advantage of a Bristle Brush is that it will condition your beard. Natural boar hair will reach hairs at every level of your beard giving you a very effective and even brush per stroke. This will distribute Beard Oil and Balm evenly, and trap the products in your beard.

Alongside the conditioning aspect of a brush, it is also used to train your hairs to start growing in the given direction and to give the effect of a fuller and more styled beard. 

And finally, regular use of Beard Brush means it can eliminate dandruff, remove dead skin cells, discarded hairs, and built-up oils that would otherwise sit on your face which could lead to itchiness, redness and irritation.

Now that you have been educated on the use of a Beard Comb and Beard Brush, be sure to check out the products that you need.
