How to Wash and Soften Your Beard

#This is my weekly/ bi-weekly beard washing routine. I DO NOT shampoo my beard every day. This is my weekly routine. I condition my beard every day. I try to do it twice; once in the morning and again before bed. Shampoo has some harsh chemicals so try to stick to all- natural products. To ensure I get a good wash and rinse I use a Clarisonic. If you don’t have one, your hands will work just fine. Steps 1: Soak your beard with water 2. Generously apply a shampoo, preferably an all- natural shampoo 3. Rinse out shampoo 4. While beard is still wet/ damp, generously apply conditioner 5. Massage conditioner into your beard from root to end 6. Rinse conditioner out 7. Pat your beard dry with a towel



Hey thanks for tuning in this your boy Kirk Alton and I’m here with another beard care video for you. So there’s a lot of misconceptions floating around about how to wash your beard and how to take care of it, so what I’m gonna do is show you guys one of my routines that I use to moisturize my beard and just keep it healthy. I’m gonna walk you through this step-by-step so you can see exactly what I do for my routine. All right let’s get to it.

First things first I like to pick out everything just so I could get to every single strand of hair. Now when I’m usually doing this routine, I’m in the shower but for this video I’m gonna just use a little spray bottle. You want to soak your beard. Get it as wet as possible, all the way through the ends and then you add that shampoo. Be generous with the shampoo. Do not be stingy. Just a note about shampoo a; A lot of people make the mistake of washing their hair too much. Only once a week. That’s all you need. Sometimes I like to skip a week because I want my hair to keep those natural oils. Use a high-quality product, all natural ingredients. I’m not plugging nobody, it’s no free promotion here. But I will plug that Clarisonic you saw me using. We’ll talk about that little later.

But while you’re shampooing y’all, use cold water. That cold water smoothes your hair follicle, keeps it healthy, keeps that shine. And when you condition, wanna condition at least once a day, at least. I like to do it in the morning and at night sometimes, but you got to make sure you do it. That’s how you keep your hair healthy and moist. And that Clarisonic, you can use it when you condition and you shampoo, it helps get a deep penetration.

Now if you don’t got a Clarisonic, you can go through there with your fingers, you could use your fingernails a little bit to get a deep penetration, but regardless of what you do, you want to take care of that beard from root all the way to the end. Last thing when you’re drying that beard, do not rub the towel through. You want to pat it, fluff it. That helps prevent breakage. It keeps your beard looking healthy. So you’ll be looking like me.
