It’s been about 10 years since I’ve jointed the beard gang. Before the Rick Ross comparisons, the beardgang hashtags and the borderline fetishizing that has happened around my face, I grew my beard out to combat the issues I had with razor bumps. While there have been strides in the razor bump issue (shout out to Bevel) , having a beard has become part of my signature look .
For the longest time, I was a get up and go kinda of guy when it came to my beard. This was largely in part to a lack of products for coarse textures and a general “I don’t feel like it” attitude towards my facial hair.
Those days have changed and so have I. If you are going to grow it, you need to groom it. Period. Check out some essentials to keeping your beard looking fresh below.
One of the most important parts of keeping you beard fresh is making sure it’s washed properly. Oddly enough, this seems to be a step men forget. Before you get to moisturizing, make sure you are washing that hair and making sure the skin underneath feels as amazing. What I love about this wash from Damn Handsome is that it’s made with natural ingredients, including beer. Yes, beer!
Conditioning is one of the most important parts of maintaining beard. Whether you leave in or need extra care after a wash, do so with this product from Bluebeards. Made from peppermint oil, this product not only adds shine to your hair but skin as well.
