5 Tips To Prevent Split Ends In Your Beard

What is a split end and how do I prevent them in my beard?

When your beard grows into a short beard (past the stubble stage), your body tends to struggle to produce and deliver the natural Sebum Oil that it requires to moisturize and condition the hair follicles.
Once this occurs the hair begins to dry out and then causes the hair to become brittle and it cracks, splitting into two strands at the end. If not addressed, hairs with split ends continue to travel up the hair follicle until the hair falls out.
Tip 1 - Use Beard Oil / Beard Balm
Beard oil and balm with quality carrier oils like Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Vitamin E and butters like Shea & Cocoa. When used regularly, they both condition and lock moisture into your beard, preventing split ends occurring. Our formulas have all-natural ingredients that are very close to human skin oil that work in conjunction with the body's naturally produce Sebum Oil.

Tip 2 - Use Beard Trimming Scissors

Don't trim the whole hair off, just snip off below the end where the hair is separating. If the split hairs are not trimmed, they will eventually split down to the root and fall out. Regularly trimming is essential to a good grooming routine.

These are a good option if you don't want to go to a barber regularly.

Tip 3 - Use A Gentle Beard Wash - Not Hair Shampoo

General store brought hair shampoo strips the natural Sebum Oil from your hair and skin and leaves both dry and coarse. A gentle natural beard wash maintains moisture in the beard and cleaning the skin which in turn helps to prevent split ends.

Tip 4 - Refrain From Plucking/Pulling on Split Ends

Alright, I must admit I still pull on my beard hairs and sometimes even pull them out, I sometimes actually strangely enjoy it. The hard truth is that pulling on beard hairs will make them brittle and then contributes to split ends occurring and the hair falling out. 

Tip 5 - Regularly Brushing
Brushing and combing your beard helps to straighten the beard hair stimulates and trains the hair follicles to grow outwards. Both also help to move beard oil and balm through the entire beard hairs and keep them coated and protected. All of which helps prevent split ends occurring.
