Even s short beard can benefit from some extra hydration to improve the hygiene and styling capabilities of your beard. Investing in a good beard shampoo for the hygiene and a beard conditioner for more hydration will help you to style your beard easier.
How big the part of a beard conditioner will be depends a little bit on the length of your beard and the texture.
Als je bijvoorbeeld houdt van een wat kortere baard, dan kan een baardconditioner voldoende zijn om je baard zacht en kriebelvrij te houden (ook leuk voor intieme momenten met je partner).
But if you have little hairs that are growing in different ways, then you need more than just a beard conditioner. You will need a beard styling product.
What is a beard conditioner?
A beard conditioner is not the same as a conditioner for your hair, because beard hairs are more coarse and thicker. That is why you usually will need some more ingredients to keep it smooth and soft.
A beard conditioner will soften your beard, but it will also make it thicker and promotes the natural hair growth. Very convenient when you are in the process of growing a longer beard.
What does a beard conditioner do?
It will soften your beard, but a beard conditioner will also nourish the skin underneath your beard. That comes in handy, because you do not want beard dandruff. (A look that does not suit anybody).
When you wash your beard it usually also removes some natural oil from your beard and skin. This does not mean you should never wash your beard, because you have to get rid of fungus and bacteria as well.
You can choose a special beard wash that will wash away the bad and leave most of the good stuff in your beard for a better looking beard and skin.
The beard conditioner helps you to keep more natural oil in your beard and it helps to minimize the drying of your beard after a wash.
It is best to use a beard conditioner that is the same brand as your beard shampoo or beard wash, because to work together smoothly.
Afterwards you can add beard oil or beard balm if you notices that your beard conditioner alone does not provide you with the wanted effect.
It will also help to trim your beard now and then, so that it is easier to style it.
How often should you use beard conditioner?
A general rule is that you should use a beard conditioner just as often as when you use your beard shampoo, because these go hand in hand.
About twice per week is enough for your beard. Do you have a job outside or a job were you can pick-up all kinds of dirt that will end up in your beard or do you exercise often? Then I would advice to wash your beard more often and use a beard conditioner afterwards for the best result.
