Now you have grown your beards, what next? Maintaining any type of hair requires dedication. Ask the women you know and they will tell you this! It all started with the hype to want to be a part of the beard gang but you should know that you ought to take good care of your mane unless you want to end up looking unkempt and ungroomed.
Just like you care for your skin, your beard shouldn’t be left out of the equation else you will end up with ragged beards and no true Style Raven wants to be caught looking scruffy.
As usual, we are here to rescue you! Besides coconut oil, here are a few products you should invest in to help you manage your beard effectively.
Fear not! You do not have to go too far to get this. You can stick with the regular ones like jojoba oil which closely mimics our skin’s natural oil. It is affordable and also very easy to find.
Beard balm and wax
These are mostly are a blend of natural oils, waxes, and butters in varying amounts. They serve as leave-in conditioners and will keep your beards feeling soft to touch. Shea butter is a good substitute!
Your regular shampoos or body wash can also carry out the same function. However, getting a wash that has been specially formulated for the beards is the best way to go. However, the regular black soap can do the same thing.
Every wash leaves your skin feeling dry hence the need for beard conditioners as they help with moisturising your beards. The beard conditioner will help soften your beards as well as add a shine to it.
Comb or brush
Depending on the length of your beards, you don’t want to go out looking untidy so it is a necessary that you comb or brush your beards before setting out. This will also help prevent constant tangles.
Remember to wash and comb your beards daily, and trim once or twice in a week depending on your growth rate.
