How to Maintain Your Beard at Home: Tips from the Experts

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Iron Born Barbershop has expert barbers who know all about maintaining a healthy and well-groomed beard. But what about when you're at home? Here are some tips from our barbers on how to keep your beard looking great between appointments.

Wash your beard regularly

Just like the hair on your head, your beard needs to be washed regularly to keep it clean and healthy. Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to prevent your beard from becoming dry and brittle.

Brush or comb your beard daily

Regularly brushing or combing your beard will help distribute the natural oils and keep it looking neat and tidy. Use a wide-tooth comb or boar bristle brush to avoid damaging your beard.

Trim your beard regularly

Regular trimming will help maintain the shape and prevent split ends. Here's how to do it yourself:

  • Start by combing your beard to remove any tangles or knots.

  • Decide on the length you want to trim your beard to, and select the appropriate guard for your clippers or trimmer. If you don't have clippers or a trimmer, you can use scissors, but it will take more time and patience.

  • Use the clippers or trimmer to cut your beard to the desired length, following the direction of your hair growth. Work slowly and carefully, making sure to keep the trimmer level and avoiding cutting too much off at once.

  • Use scissors to trim any stray hairs or to shape your beard around your mouth and nose. It's best to use scissors with a rounded tip to avoid accidentally cutting yourself.

  • Once you're finished trimming, comb your beard again to check for any stray hairs or unevenness.

Moisturise your beard

Using a beard oil or balm can help keep your beard moisturized and healthy. Look for products that contain natural ingredients such as jojoba oil, argan oil, and shea butter.

Avoid using regular hair products on your beard

Regular hair products can be too harsh for your beard and can cause dryness and irritation. Look for products specifically designed for beards, such as beard oils, balms, and waxes. Big Al's Beard Balms are perfect for every beard and skin type.
