Beard shampoo

Hair shampoo can make beards very rough and dry out the complexion. Applying a shampoo with a special formula for beards - which are generally gentler - is what works best when we need to wash our facial hair.

Beard shampoo is used in the same way as hair shampoo. Simply rub a small amount into the palms of your hands and massage both the hair and the skin underneath with the product. Finally, rinse with plenty of water.

Frequency is an issue that really depends on each one. You can shampoo your beard every day, every three days, and even once a week. No one better than yourself to judge whether a good stream of warm water during your daily shower is sufficient or you already need a thorough shampooing.

Balm and oil

These complementary products serve to nourish facial hair and the skin underneath, but their effects on the appearance of the beard are slightly different. Being lighter, oils offer a more natural result. If you have a short beard or like your beard natural, you may prefer oil.

Based on butters and waxes, the balms are equally natural, although they have a greater conditioning power. It is great for taming and smoothing those unruly locks or give a certain shape to the beard.
