Two Tips For Caring For Your First Real Beard

by Wanda Chambers

Have you finally decided to venture past the stage of scraggly stubble that usually marks the longest time you'll go without shaving? If you've never tried growing a beard before, you may get a bit stumped as to how to care for it after it really starts coming in. You might think you can just treat it like the hair on the top of your head (unless, of course, you're hoping the beard will offset the lack of hair on your head), but that can actually damage it and make it even harder to care for. 

If you want to learn a few simple ways to take great care of your new beard, pay attention to the tips below.

Visit a Barber Shop for a Trim and Some Helpful Advice

If you haven't attempted to trim or otherwise style your beard, you may notice it looking rather wild as it grows out. Unless you want to go for a truly natural, shaggy look, it may be helpful to visit your local barber and get a trim.

You may not understand exactly why it would be different to visit a barber rather than a regular hair stylist, but barbers have been specially trained to help style and maintain facial hair like mustaches and beards. They'll be able to trim your beard so that it looks well-groomed and tidy. Here are a few other things they can do for you:

  • Help you find styles that work well with the type of facial hair you have and teach you how to achieve and maintain them.
  • Recommend grooming products like brushes, oils, and balms to give your beard a sleek, neat look.
  • Tell you how often to wash, trim, and style your beard to keep it healthy and orderly.

If you want to know how best to care for your beard, listen closely to the advice your barber gives you and visit them as often as you need help with beard maintenance.

Use Specialized Shampoo

While regular hair shampoo might work okay for your beard, it's really only meant for the hair on your head. If you aren't careful to wash it out of your beard completely, it can lead to uncomfortable flaking or drying. The best option is to use a specialized beard shampoo that you can purchase at a barbershop. At the very least, use a gentle face wash after you've shampooed your facial hair to ensure it's as clean as can be.
