How To Soften Your Beard

How To Soften Your Beard

If your beard tends to feel like steel wool, you might want to look into how to soften it. The tasks might sound daunting, but we promise it’s very doable. There are many indicators of a healthy beard, softness often being one of them. A soft beard often tells us that it’s well hydrated, clean and free from itchy split ends. Unlike hair on other parts of your body, facial hair tends to be thicker and coarser. It’s because of this that it requires a little more care. 


To find out how to soften your beard in a few easy steps, keep on reading.

1. Get it trimmed

Often, beards will feel rough because they are ridden with split ends. We are often under the misconception that when growing out a beard, we don’t need to trim it. When in fact, regular trims are integral to the health, softness and growth of your beard. Use a pair of small scissors to gently trim, without taking too much off. Zeus German Stainless Steel Scissors are handmade and perfect for the job.

2. Give it a Daily Shampoo

Think of all the dirt, sweat and grime that builds up on your face throughout the day. Now imagine all of that trapped in and under your beard. Washing your beard every day is essential to keeping it nice and soft. Use a specially formulated beard shampoo to remove the accumulated debris and then a beard conditioner afterwards to hydrate. Using these in lieu of traditional hair shampoos won’t strip moisture from your strands, resulting in a softer beard.

3. Apply Beard Oil

Once shampooed, conditioned and dried add a treatment to really speed up the softening process. Massage a beard oil into your follicles, working it down to the skin underneath. A quality formulated beard oil like Zeus Natural Beard Oil will be formulated with essential oils that assist in the hydration of your beard without the greasy feeling.

4. Beard Balm

If oils are a little too drippy for your liking, consider a beard balm. Many of them function the same as an oil, but come in a handy semi-solid form. Packed with nourishing ingredients that help to soften the beard and protect the skin underneath, beard balms are generally great for thicker beards. Simply take a little balm into between your fingers and work it into the hair and skin. You’ll notice an immediate softening effect and lasting results with continual use. Zeus Beard Balm Conditioner is an excellent option for this task.


Rest assured that with this beard routine, everyone that comes in contact with your face will thank you.
