Did you enjoy reading my previous post about the beard brush? I hope you learned something from it, although I have to admit I didn’t find myself particularly great when it came to writing about that subject.
Previously I have talked about using beard combs and brushes for producing a positive impact on your beard. But in all honesty, do you think those grooming tools are enough to create that good an impact?
I believe any grooming tool should be used alongside a grooming product that you can also apply simultaneously. A brush or a comb is no good without the help of other products that you can apply to your beard too. This combination really helps you achieve the healthy and manly look that you’re aiming for.
There are many of them actually, and most of them are essential for your beard care. I am going to discuss only one of these for now. Before working on the style of your beard, the very first thing you must not forget to do is to clean it, to avoid it from itching. By doing so, you will need to use a specially designed shampoo for your beard.
I know some of you are thinking that maybe you can just wash your beard with a regular shampoo that you use for your hair on your head. Well, my answer is a big “NO” to that assumption. Using regular shampoo for your beard is not advisable as these shampoos are formulated for the hair on your head only. There are different chemicals in the regular shampoo that are good to your scalp and hair on your head, but can actually be quite harmful to your facial hair and skin.
Beard shampoo is designed to clean the hair on your face without drying the skin underneath. This is one particularly nice innovation in cosmetics. Many beard shampoos nowadays are formulated with advanced ingredients that not only help to clean your beard and protect your skin from losing necessary oils, but also nourish your facial skin and hair at the same time, keeping them smooth and soft.
Cleansing is indeed a very important part of any grooming routine. The main thing is you just have to choose the right product for it. When it comes to cosmetics you must be knowledgeable enough to use the right product for any specific area on your body to avoid unwanted results.
