How to grow a softer, healthier beard

Growing a beard is easy, you just stop shaving. However, growing a great beard, one that is admired and respected requires a little bit of effort. The simple truth is, just like the hair on your head, you need to wash, condition, and groom your beard daily if you want to grow to your full potential. 

When it comes to beard care, we believe less is more. You don't need an endless supply of products or fragrances to choose from, you just need a few excellent products you love and a simple daily routine that makes you look and feel your best. 

That's why we created our 3 step beard care routine and our True Beardsmen beard kit. As you will see below, every guy has a slightly different routine that works best for him, but they all follow the same 3 basic steps.

Step 1: Wash

Beards are amazing at soaking up days worth of hard work. Whether it's bacon grease, motor oil, or sweat and dirt from the job site, you need to wash your beard daily!

We recommend using an all natural, alcohol and chemical free beard wash. Bar soaps and body washes are filled with alcohols and chemicals that can dry out and damage your beard.

Step 2: Moisturize 

Beard oil is the foundation of a great beard and is the best way to eliminate beard itch, dry irritated skin, and beard dandruff when used correctly. Do not apply oil directly to your beard, most guys do this and it's pointless because you don't want an oily beard, you want healthy skin! 

Therefore, we recommend applying oil directly to the skin underneath your beard to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. This is why our beard oils are designed to mimic the natural sebum oils your body creates so our oil is easily absorbed into your skin keeping it healthy and moisturized. 

Step 3: Condition

By washing and oiling your beard (and skin) daily, you’re off to a great start! Now it’s time to put the icing on the cake and finish your beard routine with a bang by using a 2-in-1 leave-in conditioner.

We recommend beard butter because it's a leave-in conditioner that will soften and condition your beard hairs while also giving you a light-to-medium hold so you can shape and style your beard to perfection. Your beard will be softer, healthier and look amazing! 

Create Your Own Beard Routine

These are the 3 basic steps we recommend everyone follows so they grow the biggest, healthiest beard possible. From here, you should personalize it to meet your style, length, and overall beard goals. 

Here are a few examples from guys with different beard shapes, styles, and routines. Keep what works for you, and throw the rest of it out.
