Just like your face or body, your beard needs love too. You cannot use just any regular shampoo or bar soap. Not only will this dry your skin out, strip it of its natural oils but it also dries out your beard. Those together are BAD then you get MAD!!
After washing, gently dry your beard. You don't want it to be too rough, as this could damage the hair. Pat dry and get the majority of the water out of your beard. If it's a little damp that is ok.
This may be the most important piece for a truly healthy rugged beard. You will want to use this daily, preferably after a shower or wash. Beard oil will help alleviate the itchiness, dry skin, beard-druff( beard dandruff), and split ends.
The health and conditioning properties of a premium Beard Oil are ridiculously underrated. Once you start you won't be able to stop. You can use it 1-3 times daily. Your beard will become softer, more fragrant, better looking, and much easier to style.
This is the one-two punch for an amazing looking beard. Beard balm is a great moisturizer and conditioner for your beard. While both the oil and balm are great options it will come down to preference. Balm will give you a little more of a hold so if you're into styling your beard, you may get better results when shaping your ruggedness. You will get the best results when using the Balm and Oil together.
Once you have applied oil and balm you will want to comb or brush it to help evenly distribute the goodness. Combing in an up and down fashion will help provide a fuller more manageable beard. You will now be able to style and shape depending on the beard length. Rugged Roots offers a Comb/Brush Combo Kit so you get the best of both worlds. You get a double-sided sandalwood comb with a narrow and wide tooth side. This comes in a nice carry pouch and tin, great for traveling. Combs come in handy once your beard reaches 3" in length. Plus it's a bit easier to carry at all times compared to the brush.
Both are essential for an amazing beard. The brush will help tame those unruly hairs but is harsher on your beard than the comb. You should only use the brush once a day but can use the comb 3-5 times. Brushing will help give your beard a fuller, plush looking beard. Again, a good idea to have both.
Beard Oil: What the heck is it? You may have asked yourself if it is something you should use or not or why in the world would I want to put oil in my beard? Those are great questions and I had those same thoughts. So I decided to jump in and see what this whole world was all about. It was confusing at first. Who has the best oil or scent? Should I be worried about what is in it? Will it work for me? Let's take a walk and cover these concerns.
Beard Oil: It's exactly what it sounds like. Oil for your beard. Your skin and beard produce natural oils already. Those get stripped away throughout the day through nature's elements and when you wash your beard. This is where the oil comes in. Beard Oil works to help maintain hydration and moisturize your beard. The key is to get under your beard to the skin. This will help alleviate itch, beard dandruff (beard-druff), dry hair, and split ends. Yes, your beard can get split ends. Plus you will have a great smelling beard for you and your loved ones. After using the right Beard Oil, your beard will become way more manageable. Your course hair will become softer, smell incredible, and much easier to style. This will help you become more confident while maintaining your ruggedness.
