Beauty & Grooming Apr 17, 2018
Beards come in many shapes and sizes, but the one thing they have in common is that they all need a little TLC. Get your beard in shape with our top 3 grooming tips for a luscious beard.
1. Give Your Beard a Trim
To ensure your beard maintains its shape and structure, you have to give it regular trims and keep the edges neat and tidy. Some experts recommend doing this regularly, depending on how quickly your facial hair grows.
A product like the TRYM II, $65.99 CAD comes with four different trimming attachments, allowing you to personalize the length of the trim. It comes with a rechargeable battery but works right out of the box. And, it’s great for the frequent flyer with its sleek and portable design.
Or you can try a product like Braun’s MGK3060 Men’s Multi Grooming Kit, $54.99 CAD. This includes every grooming tool you need, taking care of hair clipping, beard trimming and even nose and ear trimming. The trimmer is cordless and includes two fixed combs that provide 13 precision lengths for beard trimming, as well as a separate attachment for detailed trimming.
2. Keep it Clean
Your beard needs to be kept clean just like the rest of you, and it needs more than a bar soap to keep it healthy. Some suggest using your regular shampoo on your beard, while others suggest finding a beard shampoo specific to your needs.
The Bluebeards Original Extra Conditioning Beard Wash, $32 CAD, is a kind-of 2-in-1 wash that cleanses both your skin and shampoo without overdrying. It simultaneously gives your pores a deep clean while conditioning your beard.
Professor Fuzzworthy’s Beard Gloss Shampoo, $34.49 CAD, is a 100% natural formula that comes as a bar. The ingredients will encourage beard growth while soothing the skin underneath with anti-itch properties.
It’s pretty easy for beard hair to become coarse, dry and unmanageable, so conditioning with an oil, cream or balm is essential. The formula (or combination of formulas) you use is all dependent on your personal preferences and what works best for your facial hair and skin type.
The Zeus Beard Conditioner Wash, $22.40 CAD, is a great example of a cream product. Much like you would with your hair, this is a product you would rinse out of your beard to soften your hair and moisturize the skin underneath.
The Proraso Beard Oil Smooth and Protect, $18 CAD, is an oil formula that does much of the same thing but might be more suitable for someone with a long, thick beard. This oil will help to tame, condition and soften.
Lastly, there’s the Cedarwood Beard Balm, $19.99 CAD, from the Rocky Mountain Barber Company. This is an all-natural formula that will help to keep your beard under control to give you that just-been-to-the-barber look.
