How Often Should I Wash My Beard?

December 20, 2016

One of the biggest mistakes beardsmen make when they start taking care of their beard is to wash their manly mane TOO OFTEN. Much like the hair on our head, it's not as healthy to wash it every single day.

We would suggest that you wash your beard 1-2 times a week with a beard shampoo. The reason for washing 1-2 times a week is washing the beard too often can strip it of its natural oils and cause the beard to dry out.

And also make sure it is a beard shampoo!! The hair on your face needs a gentler formula than the hair on your head to avoid drying it out.

 

 

But what if your beard gets dirty every day? You may work in manual labour, building work, construction etc..

You can wash your beard every day if it does get dirty and feels horrible, but we'd suggest that you use a beard shampoo that is gentle enough to use every day, like the Mr Natty FFS Beard Shampoo.

It's vital if you're going to wash your face fuzz every day that you find something gentle enough or just use plain old warm water on its own daily, and treat your beard 1-2 times a week to a good shampooing.

If you do use a beard shampoo every day though and start to feel it drying out then stop using daily straight away, and revert to 1-2 times a week!
