What do you use beard shampoo for?

A beard is completely accepted nowadays, as long as it is clean and well-groomed. It does need to be washed regularly, because your beard hairs collect a lot of bacteria. To keep your beard clean, you need a beard shampoo. Anyway, we recommend you the best beard products to use so that you always go through life with a healthy, soft and shiny beard.

A beard wash contains the right ingredients to clean the beard hair properly and it also has a nurturing effect on the underlying skin. Combine a beard shampoo with a good beard oil, beard balm or beard conditioner to keep your beard and underlying skin soft and hydrated.


How do you use a beard wash?

Using a shampoo specifically for your beard is easy. It can be compared to a shampoo for your hair. You take a little shampoo from the bottle and apply it to your wet beard until it foams. Let the shampoo soak in for a while. Then rinse the beard shampoo again. After rinsing, gently pat your beard dry so that the beard hairs do not break off. For an extra soft beard, you could also use one beard conditioner can use. Wash your beard two to three times a week with beard shampoo to keep it clean and fresh.

After using a beard shampoo, we always recommend that you beard oil or beard balm in your beard, so that your beard is not only clean, but also well-groomed and hydrated.


Why can't you use normal shampoo to wash your beard?

Beard hair and your underlying skin are a lot more sensitive than scalp hair. A normal shampoo will therefore be much too aggressive and often also contains chemical ingredients. Using a normal shampoo will lead to a dry, unkempt and hard beard.

In addition, the underlying skin will also become dry, causing it to flake and cause beard itch. These flakes (aka beard rose mentioned) can get into your beard, making it look unkempt. A beard wash therefore contains more natural ingredients and nutrients than a normal shampoo. A beard wash also ensures that not only the beard hairs, but also the underlying skin is cared for.


Is a beard wash only good for your beard?

Most beard shampoos are certainly suitable for washing your scalp and hair. You therefore often see them as a combination for beard and your hair. Even if it is not indicated, a beard shampoo can be effective for cleaning your hair because a good beard shampoo is usually higher in quality than the average hair shampoo.


What should you pay attention to when purchasing a beard shampoo?

Choosing the best beard shampoo is not always easy. Pay particular attention to the ingredients in a beard wash. A good quality beard shampoo consists mainly of natural ingredients. This is especially important if you have dry, sensitive skin.

Natural ingredients also ensure that the natural oils and nutrients are not stripped from the skin and beard hairs. Chemical ingredients cause the skin to dry out even more.
