Beard Care 101:
Why You Should Use Beard Shampoo
The foundation of any respectable beard care regimen is a good beard shampoo. This essential beard care product carries away excess oil and foreign contaminants that may clog your pores. Clogged pores lead to inflamed and irritated skin, itchiness, and acne. Without cleansing away excess sebum and other contaminants, your beard will certainly look unsightly and smell just as bad.
Before you ask, no, your hair shampoo or bar soap won't do the job. Both tend to remove all sebum, the skins natural oil-based protective and moisture regulating barrier. Removing all sebum will leave facial hair dry and itchy.
Beard shampoo is much milder than hair shampoo and body soap and works to balance sebum production. What’s more, some of the more quality beard shampoos are crafted with anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antiseptic ingredients to further promote a health, comfort and beautiful beard.
How Do You Use Beard Shampoo?
1. Wet your beard or moustache with lukewarm water. Be thorough; your facial hair should be dripping wet.
2. Dispense a nickel-sized amount in your palm, and rub your palms together to evenly distribute the beard wash on your hands.
3. Using your fingers, work the beard wash through your facial hair in a circular motion, and massage the skin beneath your beard with your fingers. Do this for 30 to 45 seconds.
PRO-TIP: Lathering is crucial at this step. If there aren’t a lot of foamy bubbles, dispense more beard wash into your facial hair.
4. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Beard Shampoo FAQ
What's the difference between this and hair shampoo?
Beard shampoo (or beard wash) is made specifically for the hair and sensitive skin on your face. They are formulated not to strip natural oils to leave facial skin feeling more balanced. The use of regular hair shampoo on your beard can lead to skin feeling tight and dry. It also increases chances of irritation and dandruff.
Will beard shampoo help me grow a beard?
No, beard shampoo will not help you grow a beard. The ability to grow a beard is largely dependent on your genetics. Beard wash is simply meant to aid in growing a healthy and comfortable beard.
Is it possible to wash my beard/mustache too much?
Yes, you can certainly wash it too much. As we explained above, the goal of washing your facial hair is to remove all foreign contaminants and any excess sebum. The key word here is “excess.” We don’t want to wash ALL the sebum away, just the excess. As a general rule, you should only wash your beard twice a day.
