Having soft hair is all the rage. But when it comes down to our facial hair, many of us forget to put in the extra effort. The result? A shiny, soft head of hair and a wiry, dry frizzy-looking beard. Not ideal.
Luckily, turning your wispy strands into a luscious beard is by no means a difficult feat. In fact, if you follow our step-by-step guide to getting a soft beard, you’ll be prancing around with beard hair so soft that it’ll surely be the talk of the town!
But gents – it’s not just about looking dapper. A soft beard is also a sign of a healthy beard that can keep growing strong without breaking or causing itchiness. So, whilst not all men with beards are born with naturally velvety manes, all men with beards can get super-soft beard locks if they follow our tips.
How to Get a Soft Beard
Let’s be honest, the benefits of having a soft beard definitely outweigh the time and dedication you’ll have to put in. Not to mention, your beard won’t feel as itchy, it’ll be easier to style and, most importantly – your partner will thank you for it.
Yes, long gone are the days of brash, impenetrable and – might we add – kiss-repelling beards. It’s all about looking rugged and masculine but without having to endure the harsh reality of wispy, uncollaborative facial hair!
So, whether you’re one of the lucky ones born with a naturally soft mane or, like the rest of us, desperately need to balm it to make it – here’s how you can soften your beard:
Use a Beard Softener Shampoo
Over-cleanse your beard and it’ll dry out, under-cleanse it and you’ll end up with a greasy, unpleasant-looking mane. Getting that balance right is important, but what’s even more crucial is using the right products.
If you’re currently washing your beard with hair shampoo or body washes, do your locks a favour and stop immediately. No, we won’t call the beard police, but that’s one hefty hair crime you’re committing!
The best way to lock in moisture and prevent your beard from becoming dry, brittle and prone to breakage is to use shampoos specially formulated for beards. Try King C Gillette’s Beard Shampoo and Face Wash which is packed with avocado, coconut and argan oils as well as a mild mentholated cleanser to ensure your beard is clean, fresh and well-moisturised.
