6 Beard Maintenance Tips For a Full, Healthy Beard

Nothing looks manlier or as sharp as a full and well-maintained beard. However, unless you are one of the lucky ones, you must put in some work to keep your beard looking nice.

Trying to grow a beard? State Street Barbers offers some effective beard maintenance tips below.

1. Wash Your Beard Regularly

Wash your beard with men’s natural shampoo 2-3 times each week. This will keep your beard clean, smelling great, and prevent any build up (caused by sweat or excess oil) from accumulating in your beard.

2. Learn How to Fade Your Beard Neckline

The fade on the neckline makes a huge difference and gives your beard that natural look. First, make sure that you’ve fixed all the other parts of your beard and that the hair is even everywhere.

Then, rim your beard around an inch above the jawline. Set the blades on the trimmer to be shorter than the initial beard length. Trim an inch going towards the sideburns and do this as long as needed until your beard is blended with your sideburns.

3. Work on Your Neckline

Apart from making a good fade, your neckline also needs to be crisp and clear. There shouldn’t be anything sticking on the underside of the chin or around the cheeks. Luckily, you can use an easy old method to always know where to put your neckline.

Simply put two fingers together above your Adam’s apple. This is where the neckline should be. Follow the neckline along with the jawline and make sure that the distance is even.

4. Condition and Hydrate Your Beard

You can’t use the same products you use for your hands or hair to maintain your beard. The skin on your face is sensitive and your beard may grow a different texture than the hair on your head.

Use a beard soap that will nurture your facial hair as well as the skin underneath your beard. Find beard conditioners and shampoos that can do the same. Look for products that have mostly natural ingredients; they will work best. In the end, make sure to get beard oil. It will help you moisturize your beard, keep it bushy, and let you comb it nicely.

5. Enjoy the Healthy Beard You Want With These Tips

With these five simple tips, you can easily maintain your beard. It’s all about creating a proper routine and taking your time to do things right. You can’t grow a fantastic beard overnight. Be patient and be consistent with your maintenance and you’ll soon have the beard you want.

6. Trim Your Beard

Trimming is essential to keeping your beard looking well kept and healthy. Use scissors instead of trimmers for the best results. Trimmers are more likely to create splits ends, while scissors allow you to be more precise.

Every few weeks, check your beard in the mirror with a pair of scissors and snip off uneven patches and split or loose ends. Make sure you’re following the natural contour of your face. Keep a rounded shape with all the hairs at a uniform length.

Worried about over trimming or uneven beard length? Brush your beard with a small comb while trimming in order to see which hairs are loose and need to be trimmed. Comb down your beard after each cut so you can see the length and trim in the all the right spots without overdoing it.
