One of the mistakes most men make when grooming their beard is to wash it with bath gel or their normal hair shampoo. For a good beard, it's important to know that facial hair has a different texture and requires a special soap to deeply cleanse it without causing irritation to the facial skin. In case you can't find a soap specifically for washing beards, it's best to choose a mild pH-neutral shampoo.


In addition to shampooing it, you can also use a conditioner that will help you keep your beard in tip-top condition, whenever you shower. Applying a few drops of conditioner is perfect for smoothing the hair and eliminating possible dandruff, or white particles, that appear whenever you scratch your beard. Try it and you'll notice the difference!


Other great products for taking care of your beard include natural oils specifically designed to add shine to facial hair, moisturize the skin and soften rough beards. Don't hesitate to apply some of this product on your beard after shampooing, and you'll see how it instantly improves your appearance.

And, of course, to show off an attractive and perfect beard, you should always comb it. Although you might think otherwise, combing your beard on a daily basis with the appropriate comb is the key to having a flawless beard. It's best to comb it after having used a good shampoo and conditioner or natural oil. Use a comb that's appropriate for the density of your beard. For example, if your beard is rather short and you have fine facial hair, a small-toothed comb should be sufficient. While, on the other hand, if your beard is long and thick, you'll need a wide-toothed comb.
