The truth about beard care

Beards have been the hottest accessory around for the last few years, but attractive facial hair needs proper care.

Why is it important to wash and care for your beard?

Facial hair has a thick texture and can dry out without proper care. The skin underneath has less natural oil than the scalp skin, so it needs extra moisture to stay hydrated.

Shampooing your beard regularly is essential for keeping it looking (and smelling) great. It’s surprising how much dirt and pollution can get trapped in facial hair during daily life. Use a gentle shampoo like NIVEA MEN 2in1 Hair + Beard to keep your bristles fresh and conditioned.

The face needs a mild cleanser, which won't strip away the natural oils and leave behind a waxy build up. Moisture is very important too, so for maximum softness always use a conditioning beard wash. 

Be kind to your beard

Spending hours trimming and preening your precious facial hair only gives you the perfect look when combined with the right shampoo. Harsh beard soaps or shampoos might not provide the right care for you, leaving the hair wiry, unmanageable and crying out for a moisturising beard conditioner.

Instead, choose a gentle cleanser like NIVEA MEN 2in1 Hair + Beard, which has a mild formula to leave you with noticeably healthy hair and a conditioned beard.

Ditch the itch!

Beards can be very much prone to itching, particularly in the early stages of growth. During the first weeks, the hairs can curl around and scratch the sensitive skin, making it very tempting to grab the razor and call it quits. But stick with it – this phase doesn’t last forever!

5 grooming tips for a great-looking beard

  • Pick a style that suits your face shape.
  • Comb through your beard every day with a wide-toothed comb.
  • Invest in some high-quality clippers for professional shaping.
  • Never trim a wet beard, as wet hair is longer and you might trim it too short.
  • Use a razor for the perfect neckline daily, but change the blade regularly.

How to shampoo and condition the beard

The best way to keep your facial hair in excellent condition is regular cleansing – here’s all you need to know about using beard wash!

What is beard shampoo and conditioner?

Good beard care is all about giving the hair and the skin beneath it exactly what it needs. Regular use of beard shampoo removes dirt and food particles to leave it feeling and smelling clean and fresh. Beard conditioner, on the other hand, protects the hair from the outside. This helps to relieve dryness for silky whiskers you’ll be keen to show off.

Repeat regularly

A beard wash two to three times a week should be sufficient for most men, but if your facial hair is longer or you spend a lot of time in polluted environments, it’s a good idea to do it more often.
