How do I start a beard care routine?

A good beard care routine should keep your beard clean, moisturized, and groomed. Luckily, that doesn't involve too much effort and can be achieved using just a handful of products.

To start off, it's good to prep your beard by cleansing it with beard shampoo and conditioner. This will ensure that oils and dirt don't interfere with the rest of your routine and help reduce beardruff and beard itch. Once your beard is clean and prepped it is time to moisturize, this is where you will want to assess the condition of your beard and decide which products will benefit it the most. If you are just looking for moisture, perhaps try a beard oil. If you are looking for some hold and hydration, then try a beard balm. If you have an exceptionally dry beard, then you could benefit from layering a beard balm on top of a beard oil. The condition of your beard can vary from day to day, so it's a good idea to have a variety of products to choose from. Whichever product you choose, you can maximize its effectiveness by using a beard brush or beard comb to evenly distribute the product. This will also allow you to shape and volumize your beard as you see fit. It is important to choose a brush/comb that caters to your specific needs, so you will want to pay attention to the length and thickness of your beard when choosing one. Once you've built a solid routine you can venture out into more specialized categories, such as trimming and mustache care, if needed.

Following this guide should help you get started on building your routine, but if you want to take all the guesswork out of it you can purchase a beard kit that is curated for your specific beard care concerns.

Should I brush/comb my beard daily?

Brushing and combing your beard should be done regularly. Obviously we all want to look our best and not have an unkempt appearance. But brushing and combing your hair goes beyond just looking sharp. The coarseness and wiriness of beard hair means it can tangle easily and cause irritation to the skin beneath. Using a beard brush and comb will combat this rather uncomfortable situation by straightening the hair and detangling the knots, leaving you with a softer and more manageable beard.

What is the best way to get rid of beard itch?

Itchiness and irritation are common side effects of growing a beard. The coarseness and sharpness of beard hair can irritate the skin on your neck and face, causing an unpleasant sensation commonly known as "beard itch.” This can be combated by using specially formulated products that will soften facial hair and moisturize the skin beneath. Cleaning your beard regularly with shampoo and using beard conditioner is the best place to start if you are suffering from an itchy beard.

In addition to regular cleaning, the use of a leave-in conditioner like Zeus Beard Balm or Zeus Beard Oil will help to keep your hair and skin hydrated and irritation free. And don’t forget to brush your beard – doing so will exfoliate the skin underneath and remove any knots that may be contributing to the problem.
