Should You Brush Your Beard?

Yes you should try to brush your beard once per day. This is one of the most common mistakes people make when starting out, as they don’t treat their chin hair the same as their head hair.

Of course, brushing your beard will help to keep it neat and controlled so it doesn’t look manic, but there are other benefits. For example, it will help to move the oil throughout the beard equally. It can also help to ensure your hair starts growing downwards in the way you want it to. Plus it can also help to remove dandruff.

How Often Should You Brush Your Beard?

As much as we highlight the importance of brushing, be aware that you shouldn’t overdo it, with once per day being the most. Any more than once a day and you might have the reverse effect, by creating split ends.

Does Brushing Your Beard Help It Grow?

No, brushing doesn’t directly help your beard to grow, but it can paint the illusion. The brush will help it to grow in the right direction and can help it to appear more full, therefore while it doesn’t directly help it to grow, it has associated benefits.

Is It Better To Comb Or Brush Your Beard?

It depends on the length of your beard. When you start out you want to stick to a brush, however once you reach the 4 month mark you can transition towards a comb as it works well at getting rid of tangles.

Again, this might sound basic, but you will want to consider which comb to buy carefully, as the size and shape should work with your beard length and thickness. I know, it sounds like an easy idea to buy a beard comb, but you’d be surprised by the various different sizes on offer!

The comb is perfect for styling the beard, something which is very hard with a brush, but the brush has other benefits, such as cleaning out the dirt, training the beard to grow downwards and to distribute beard oil evenly.

When combing your beard, make sure to add some beard oil at the same time.

What Direction Should You Brush Your Beard?

When you start, go from the bottom of the neck and brush upwards. This helps to separate the hairs out. You may hit a snag of hair, where they are trapped. If so, just remove the comb and start at the bottom of the neck, rather than pulling it out. Make sure to brush gently, don’t go too hard or fast. Some like to do it in ‘layers’ as they go up from the neck, to ensure all hairs are reached properly.

Afterwards, you need to reverse the direction and brush all your hair downwards.

With the moustache, you direct it to the side, away from your nose, which prevents the hairs dropping into your mouth.

Should You Also Wash Your Beard Every Day?

The opening answer to this is that there is no direct answer, as it depends on your skin type, genetics, where you live and what you do on a daily basis.

You want to ensure your beard is always clean, however you also want to avoid removing natural oils and dry out the skin below. For this reason, we also need to emphasise the importance of using a beard conditioner such as ours.

So when considering how often to wash your beard, you need to experiment and also consider how your skin is in general. If you have oily skin, then you should wash your beard more frequently, so as to avoid dandruff in the beard or acne.

If you have dry skin then you need to lower the amount of time you wash the beard, maybe opting for once every 2-4 days.

Of course, not everyone is one or the other, some have combination skin. If this is you, then wash your beard once every 2 days and if there is excess oil, give it a quick wash with water.
