Products To Get Familiar With

First, let’s go down the list of product options. Here are the main categories.

1. Beard Wash and Beard Soap

Beard wash and beard soap are slightly different products, but they aim to do the same thing. This is the shampooing stage of the beard. The difference between the two is that beard soap comes in a bar form as opposed to a liquid.

Beard wash and soap are often used on a daily basis, so they should come in a relatively good size. It’s important to note that a facewash doesn’t do the same thing. Beard wash and soap is specific to managing and cleaning the beard.

Using a facewash may leave your beard feeling tight and coarse.

2. Beard Conditioner

Just like all girls use conditioner, all guys should also use a beard conditioner. This will make their beard strands soft and shiny. After washing the beard, your guy is likely to strip away some of the healthy oils.

This can make the hair brittle and dry. Hay straw-feeling beards end up looking straggly, which is why you can’t go wrong with this type of product.

3. Beard Balm

Guys who need a little more moisturizer in their products will serve well using a beard balm. Beard balm is a mix of ingredients. Typically, you’ll find different natural beard butters, such as shea butter or cocoa butter mixed with beeswax. This creates a balmy feel that makes tanning and styling the beard easier.

Guys will use this type of product after they have washed and conditioned their beards. It takes the conditioning a step further and provides a nice shine. It’s also great for moisturizing the skin below the beard. It’s often referenced as a crossover between beard wax and beard oil.

4. Beard Oil

Beard oil is not for everyone. This type of beard product is designed specifically for guys with the driest and coarsest of beards. A little goes a long way, so you will likely see that the bottles come in smaller sizes.

If your man complains of having dry and itchy skin around his beard, then this is a sign for a little bit of beard oil. Too much can cause a greasy effect, so choosing one with quality ingredients is important.

Tip: More affordable brands may use olive oil to keep the price reasonable. It’s best to avoid this type of beard oil because it’s a thick oil that the hair has a harder time absorbing. Beard oil should be thin and luxurious feeling instead of thick and oily.

5. Beard Wax

Beard wax is used in the same way that styling gel is. If your boyfriend has long and uncontrollable facial hair, this product is great for keeping it nice, neat, and styled. Having a styled beard is like styling your hair to go with the right outfit.

Quality Over Quantity

When choosing the beard products that work best for your boyfriend, it’s important to keep one thing in mind. You always want to choose quality ingredients over the quantity or the product. Stick to ingredients that are natural and won’t dry out the beard or skin. This may include avoiding certain fragrant products.

The best way to confirm whether a product is good or not is to read the reviews. When you combine this with checking out the ingredient label, your boyfriend is sure to love whatever you pick out.

Keep being AllDayChic!
