Use A Beard Oil

A beard oil is an absolute necessity when it comes to taking care of your beard. It's used to hydrate your hair, as well as your skin underneath.

If you're someone who suffers from beardruff, add a beard oil to your daily routine. The Bearded Chap's Beard Oil, acts as a hyper intensive moisturiser nourishing the skin under the beard and providing the hair follicles with nutrients to maintain its health. Say goodbye to that “itch” and feel the effects of nourishing ingredients that come from the handpicked bases and fast absorbing natural oils.

To use, place 4-6 drops of grooming oil in palm of hand after washing with a dedicated beard shampoo. Rub into hands and massage upward into the beard and skin, making sure to get under chin and cheeks.

Maintain Regular Grooming

It's important to know, that no two beards are the same. Some grow straight, some wavy and others curly. So if you're someone who has a few strays, here's what tools you can use.

First things first, make sure that any hair growing from the adams apple down, is trimmed short. You can use a Safety Razor to do this. Next you're going to want to Brush or Comb your beard every day to prevent knots and tangles. They're also great for making sure hairs aren't flying out in all sorts of different directions. Simply brush them down. Hot tip from The Bearded Chap is to attach a diffuser to a hair dryer (to avoid burning your face) and use a brush to comb your beard into the desired style and shape.

Once you're happy with the length of you beard, it's all about maintenance. Use scissors or trimmers to groom hair in place.
