How To Use Beard Wash
It’s always great to see your beard clean, shiny, well-groomed, and growing in health. So what does it take to keep a well-groomed beard that everyone admires? Well... It takes time, effort, dedication, and great beard care products one among these is a quality beard wash or shampoo.
Today, there are plenty of hair shampoo products in the market designed for your head hair but did you know there are actually quality beard wash products designed specifically for your beard hair? In this post, we look at how to use a Beard Wash for the effective cleaning and well being of your facial mane.
Washing Your Beard with Beard Wash
It is fairly easy to wash your beard, but it must be done with the right product otherwise you might find it will dry out and become scratchy. Yes, you need to wash your face every day, but not your beard. As you might know, humans have natural skin oil that your body produces naturally to maintain hair and skin. This oil is called sebum and the "lack of" this oil is what contributes to itching and potentially damaged beard hairs. Washing the beard every day with a normal hair shampoo will strip these oils from your beard.
How Often Should the Beard Wash be used?
On average, you should wash your beard two to three times a week. If you work all day long, or play a lot, or are frequently in a dirty dusty environment, you might need to wash your beard every day, but always ensure you do it with a specifically designed product to protect both your skin and beard.
While regular soaps and shampoos will strip out the natural oils, our wash formula is mild and will restore these oils back in.
How to Apply Beard Wash
For easy application, start with cleaning your beard, squirt a small amount of the formula into your palm, rub your palms together to create a slight lather, and apply throughout your man mane. Use your fingertips to dig deep into all directions of your beard in a scrubbing motion. Let the wash sit for a couple of minutes then rinse well. Use a clean towel to dry your beard gently and you are good to go. We recommend following up using some Lejonjon beard oil and balm for best results
Is Beard Wash Safe for Use?
Generally, the beard wash is safe and healthy for use. However, it is essential that you use every product and follow the directions to keep your facial hair and the skin underneath healthy and strong. If you are a seasoned beard keeper, you might already know the right products to use and have a personal preference on use this is fine also.
