TREAT YOUR SKIN
Before taking care of your beard, take care of your skin. Indeed, it is very important to have a beautiful healthy beard, to take care of the skin below. For this, we recommend that you wash your skin daily with a facial cleanser. Performing an exfoliating scrub from time to time is also essential to thoroughly cleanse the skin, remove impurities, and release stuck hairs. Always rinse with warm water. Finally, your skin needs to be hydrated. Indeed, the hair areas such as the beard are sensitive areas, exposed to external aggressions, which must, therefore, be protected and hydrated. To do this, use a moisturizer suitable for your skin type.
If you have a frizzy beard and are shaving closely, we will give you some tips for a successful shave. First of all, it is important to use a shaving cream rich enough to moisturize and soften the hairs. It’s the secret to a gentle shave! You thus reduce the inflammations and irritations due to the fire of the razor. Use a quality razor, with several blades, which will shave your hair as closely as possible. Finally, don’t forget to apply an after-shave balm. It is essential to soothe and calm the skin.
FIGHTING AGAINST HARNESS
If you have a frizzy beard, then it is very likely that you are prone to ingrown hairs and shaving bumps. Indeed, it is genetic: your hair has a curly shape, which promotes regrowth under the skin. This phenomenon is accentuated if your pores are blocked. You end up with ingrown hairs, which can be unpleasant and unsightly.
Shaving bumps, also called pseudo-folliculitis, are also a superficial inflammation of the hair. They appear when the hairs grow back, curl under the skin, creating bumps. The more the hair is curled, the more the phenomenon occurs.
Another factor that can cause ingrown hairs or shaving bumps is too dry hair. Indeed, during shaving, if the hair is too dry, the razor will cut it at an angle, which will cause it to grow back under the skin.
If you have frizzy hair and hairs, then your skin is more susceptible to inflammation. It is therefore very important to moisturize your hair well before shaving, with suitable shaving cream. Ingrown hairs must be treated immediately, and especially not pulled out. You risk leaving scars, or even damaging the hair follicle, which will slow down hair growth.
Finally, cleaning your beard regularly with exfoliating products will help you limit ingrown hairs, by cleaning the pores. As well as a properly performed shave, with suitable products. If your ingrown hairs persist, it is important to consult a dermatologist who will prescribe a suitable treatment.
MAINTAINING A FILLED BEARD
If you let your beard grow, it is essential to maintain it properly to maintain a beautiful coat. First of all, avoid using your hair shampoos for your beard, they are not suitable. Use shampoos or soaps for beards.
The frizzy beard can easily become rough, dry, and difficult to tame. To soften and hydrate it, use a beard treatment, to be applied daily. To discipline your hair and style your beard, do not hesitate to apply a wax or other special styling. Finally, trimming regularly will help you keep a nice shape and avoid split ends.
USE A SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED Grooming Kit
A second mistake that can be avoided is to use the same products to wash your beard as those that you use to wash your hair because these products do not have the same functions. The vast majority of products specifically designed for black men’s hair are often very thick, waxy, and often contain too many chemicals. So, if you applied these products, they could very well cause acne, clog pores, and make some other unpleasant complications. We suggest daily cleaning of the face with cold water and washing the beard with products suitable for beard care, once or twice a week. Regular application of beard oil can also help counter any skin problem because it also nourishes the underlying skin. If your hair is still curly and frizzy after applying beard oil, you should use a little beard balm containing shea butter, as this will help make your beard more manageable. After application For these products, you must comb and brush your beard with a beard comb to give it a nice finish and distribute the oil and butter evenly in your beard.
Last advice: do not use your shampoos or conditioners to clean it. Indeed, the vast majority of hair products specially designed for the hair of black men are often very thick and contain chemicals. So, if these products are applied, they can cause acne and several other unpleasant complications. We, therefore, suggest that black and bearded men wash their faces under lukewarm or cold water and use beard cleaners once or twice a week.
