Much as looking after your body and the hair on your scalp provides better outcomes when you use a good shampoo, conditioner or treatment, proper beard care items are essential to maintaining healthy, professional-looking facial hair.
And here, I’d like to talk about my experiences with the items and tools that will make beard maintenance and care much more fun.
Beard oil is the most important beard care commodity of the time. Without it, the beard gets dry and crunchy and is susceptible to tangles and breakage when combing. Your beard needs to be re-hydrated, particularly after cleaning.
The best beard oils are cantered on light carrier oils like jojoba, which would be the oil that most nearly reflects the actual oil of our face.When you clean your beard to scrub away sweat and dirt, some of the protective oil is removed along with the dirt. Beard oil essentially replaces the normal and beneficial oil that is undeniably lost when you clean your beard.
Avoid Olive Oil
Budget-range beard oils typically use stronger carriers such as olive oil, which tends to minimize costs, but these heavier oils prefer to stay on the top of the hair rather than get soaked up. This is not the best thing for the wellness and looks of your beard, and I can tell from personal observation that these cheaper oils are far more probable to ruin your shirt collar. Luckily, after the first ruined shirt, I learned my lesson.
In addition to the carrier oils which provide the basis of the substance, beard oils also include other ingredients to produce good scents. It is typically safer to search for products that use natural essential oils instead of artificial fragrance oils, since these products would be used around your mouth and under your nostrils.
Beard balm and Wax
If you have facial hair that is bushy or hard to handle, we strongly recommend that you look at beard waxes and balms. But bear in mind that there is no industry definition on what defines either product, so that the terms may be a little vague.
Most of them are blends of natural oils, butters, and waxes in different quantities. The proportion of the ingredients in question allows the final product to fall somewhere on a broad continuum, with the conditioning at one end and the hold at the other. In general, this group of beard grooming products are a kind of dense leave-in light-end conditioners all the way to heavy-duty grooming products on the heavy side.
You can get these beard products in Australia from many online stores.
Since your face releases little oil than the hair on the top, it is better to use a wash made specifically for your beard. Cleaning your beard with a shampoo is basically the same thing as using this as a face wash. I remember I had to use a shampoo to clean my face because it was all I seemed to have, and then my face felt tight and dry. Trust me on one thing: you don’t want to do it on a daily basis, so getting a wash tailored for use on your beard is the path to go.
