Q. How Do You Deal With An Itchy Beard?
The terrible beard itch is what makes so many men decide against growing a beard. The hair growth can irritate the skin, which leads to an uncomfortable, itchy sensation. You can use a beard balm or beard oil to soften your beard hair to make it less irritating during the early growing phase. We also recommend regularly exfoliating your face as this will also help to reduce the dreaded itch.
Q: Will The Bald Patches And Spots In My Beard Fill Out?
Bald spots and patches in your beard are common and are determined by your genetics. As you get older, your beard hair will start growing in areas that were once hair-free. We recommend using a beard growth oil to help encourage growth in any patchy areas.
Q: How Often Should I Wash My Beard?
Washing your beard to often can make the hair dry, so it is recommended to wash your beard about twice per week using only a beard safe beard wash. However, having said that, you need to take care of your facial hair depending on your individual needs, for example, if you regularly work in a dirty environment, we would recommend 48-hour beard washing as hygiene should always take priority. Remember also to always condition your beard hair with a high-quality beard conditioner after each wash to help maintain its strength and softness and to replenish lost oils and vitamins.
