1) Beard Oil

This is a product that’s shouldn’t be left out of the beard grooming set. Beard oil is a combination of carrier oils (90%) and essential oils (10%). Men experience itching that is caused by the reduction in natural oils (sebum) as the hair follicles push through the skin. Beard oil supplements these natural oils and plays a big part is reducing itching. When the beard isn’t well groomed it tends to become dry and flaky and can lead to beardruff. Beard oil has moisturizing and softening abilities, which are vital in getting rid of beardruff. To learn how to use beard oil read this guide.

Beard brush or beard comb? Both are instrumental in achieving a great beard. If you’re going to get your man a comb, get a wooden one. It is durable and stays for a long time if well taken care of and the polished, wide teeth glide between beard hairs easily and helps spread beard and balm oil to all areas. Most beard brushes are made of animal hair (horse or hair). A beard brush removes dirt and bacteria that may have accumulated between the facial hairs during the day. It also straightens and styles facial hairs to achieve the look that your man desires. Beard brushes and combs come in various designs.

4) Beard Shampoo/Wash

As for cleaning, facial hair should be treated like any other part of the body. The greatest strength of this product is that it is specifically designed for the beard. It has tremendous benefits. Unlike conventional shampoos, a beard wash doesn’t strip facial hair off natural oils or leave it dry once used. If a beard is not well taken care of, it becomes dry and flaky leading to the dreaded beardruff. Perhaps the most important function of beard wash is that it gets rid of contaminants, dirt and flakes on the facial hair and keeps away beardruff.It also moisturizes, hydrates and softens the beard. This ensures that the beard is smooth and soft, making it easy to comb and spread oils(beard oil and balm) evenly.

5) Face Wash and Shave Cream

A natural shave cream is a must-have for your bearded man. Experts insist that it has to be a natural one, which doesn’t lather. This is primarily because ingredients in lather cause irritation to the skin after shaving. A shave cream takes the role of a lubricant, where it creates a layer of protection between the beard and the skin thus making it easier to shave and reducing irritation thereafter. It also moistens the beard making them easier to cut. On the other hand, a natural face wash made of ingredients like olive oil, aloe-vera, jojoba oil and charcoal is also vital. It gets rid of bacteria, protects the skin from sun damage and hydrates the beard/skin.
