Step 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.

Step 2 

Keep Your Beard Hydrated and Conditioned

To keep your beard soft and shiny, condition it regularly with beard oil. This also moisturizes the skin underneath your beard to prevent itchiness, control flakes, and maintain follicle health. Remember, your beard is only going to be as healthy as the skin underneath it. Never used beard oil before? No worries – it’s easy.

1. Pour a few drops (less is more) into the palm of your hand and spread it evenly between both hands.

2. Massage the oil into the base of your beard (it can be dry or damp, but not wet).

3. Work your hands through your beard until you’ve reached the hair tips. Spread the oil evenly over your entire beard and the underlying skin.

How often should you apply beard oil?

If you live in a dry climate or have dry skin/hair, apply it daily or every other day.

If you have oily skin/hair or live in a humid climate, apply it 2-3 times per week.

If you notice oily buildup or your beard gets greasy, apply less often.

Step 3 

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.

Step 4 

Clean Up Your Neckline

The one case where you should use a trimmer is around your neck line. For most guys doing this every two weeks is plenty. Here’s how to do it:

Stack your index and middle fingers just above your Adam’s apple.

Trim your beard to where your top finger is.

Trim a U-shape from your side burns down to meet this point.

Do not just follow your jaw line. That will result in an awkwardly shaped beard.

 

Step 5

5. Stay Healthy

Your beard, hair, and skin are direct reflections of your inner health. If you want a thick, healthy beard, you need to exercise, eat well, sleep well and limit alcohol consumption.

BEARDS IN BUSINESS: SHOULD YOU SHAVE BEFORE YOUR JOB INTERVIEW?

 If you’re considering life as a military man, your beard will have to go while you’re enlisted.

The Army, Air Force and Marine Corps banned beards to ensure soldiers’ personal hygiene and ability to seal chemical weapon protective masks. In addition, military opinion holds that eliminating facial hair options creates uniformity and camaraderie.

In 2018, Command Sgt. Maj. John Troxell, the most senior enlisted member of the U.S. Armed Forces referred to beards as “relaxed grooming standards,” “part of pop culture” and “a tangible gimmick” in an interview with “Military Times.”

Troxell said clean-shaven service members are “the ethical standard-bearers, globally, for everything that is right about our country.”

Bartenders, Servers and Chefs

Food industry professionals often encounter issues with extra hair present because guests understandably don’t like loose strands garnishing their food.

On the upside, beards aren’t completely out of the question when it comes to working as a bartender, server or chef. There is a possibility you can keep your edgy look without missing out on a job opportunity.

On the downside, beards may lose their aesthetic when working in a restaurant. Some employers require employees with long hair or beards to wear hair nets, ensuring no hair makes its way on to the plates.

Sales and Business Professionals

While a traditional white-collar office isn’t the first place you’d think of seeing beards, facial hair can actually help in sales and business.

Studies show that people view men with beards as more aggressive, dominant and confident, which are often considered strong qualities in a sales or businessman.

In addition, beards also provide a perception of age, maturity and good physical health, which often makes the man appear more trustworthy.

Doctors and Medical Staff

Depending on which role they hold in the hospital, doctors can sport varying lengths of beards.

In some instances, doctors prefer to shave less because keeping facial hair is more convenient while working long shifts and brings better results when communicating with patients.

In a 1985 letter published in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, physician F.A. Colby argued for his beard saying, “it is a comfort to stroke it and look wise while making a doubtful diagnosis” and that he grew it in an attempt “lose the title of ‘the young doctor.'”

In other cases, surgeons and doctors conducting technical work often choose to shave to avoid spreading harmful pathogens or contaminating tests. They can also be required to shave if their facial hair interferes with the seal of a needed medical mask in the course of their work.

Jobs that let you keep a burly beard

Luckily, some professions have made the switch to allowing beards be the new norm. If you’re looking for a career that likely won’t think twice about your beard as an application deterrent, check out these jobs. They promise to let you showcase more of your personal style on the clock.

Barber It pretty much goes without saying, a profession focused on crafting the ultimate beard and hair styles allows its employees and contractors to rock unique facial hair looks. If the choice to keep your beard stems from a passion for facial hair, pursuing a career as a barber will offer you the ideal creative outlet. Lastly, mechanics also often rock burly beards. When working in and under cars and trucks, dirt and debris are often flying everywhere. Having a beard in this case often protects a mechanics mouth and nose area.

The important key to remember in a dirtier profession is to wash your beard thoroughly when you get home. Bacteria leftover from work can cause breakouts, itch and scraggly styles if not cared for properly after work. Investing in a gentle beard shampoo and conditioner will help your beard stay clean and healthy

How to Make Your Beard Soft And Smooth

A shiny and glossy soft beard is what makes women fall for you, so you have to make sure that your beard stays shiny all the time. Here is how you can make your beard shine:

A shiny beard comes from clean and soft facial hair, for which a nice and nourishing shampoo is a must. Shampoo your beard to clean it, but do not overdo it as too much shampoo can leave your hair messy and tangled too. Apply a softening and shining conditioner to it and make sure that you remove all the residue shampoo and conditioner from your beard. Dried-off conditioner or shampoo makes your beard look dull and dirty which is something that you want to avoid.

Trim your beard to remove any extra hair and to give it a proper shape. Then apply coconut oil to make it smooth and shiny after trimming it. Coconut oil has natural properties which will make your beard grow and appeal to avoid shimmering sprays as they weaken the hair of your beard and use Argan oil and vitamin E instead which give it a long-term shine.
