Don’t let your beard be a barricade – condition for closeness
Let’s be real — your beard was probably high up on the list of qualities that caught the attention of your significant other. If you don’t have a significant other, maybe grow a beard and see what happens.
One of the perks of having someone in your life that is attracted and into you is kissing that other person.
With a beard though, especially with one that is unkempt, kissing can become a nightmarish situation for your partner.
A dry, frizzy and out of control beard can make kissing you feel more like they are hacking their way through a field of thorns to get to the rose underneath.
And after an intense make out session, no one wants to have to ice their face and apply ointment or bandages to cuts. It’s a real turnoff.
Have no fear though, conditioner is here.
Conditioning your beard is an essential component in presenting the best face forest you can to the world. The ingredients in a good conditioning product will leave your hair smooth and shiny, all while restoring and strengthening your mane.
You should already be shampooing your beard regularly. Adding a heavy-duty conditioner to the mix, it can even be one made for the hair on top of your head, is a great start.
There are also three amazing products available that will not only shape and style your beard, but condition it as well. Using these products will up your make out game tremendously and give you a mane that inspires confidence each and every time you look in the mirror.
In the early days of your beard growth, a beard cream is a great way to condition. Since control and shape is less of an issue with a smaller beard, a good cream will focus more on hydration and smoothness while giving you a more natural feel. Look for a beard cream that has ingredients such as coconut and sunflower oils. Those oils will strengthen and nourish your skin and hair, while minimizing greasiness and that awful itch that inevitably comes in the early stages.
As your mane makes progress and becomes stronger, you need a tougher product for the job of conditioning. This is where beard oils and balms come into play.
Proper beard oils will have the ingredients necessary to condition your mane, while helping you shape and smoothen it. Ingredients like Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Oil are natural conditioners that will leave your mane feeling smooth and nourished.
Beard balm is like beard oil on beard-shaping-steroids. On top of having oils essential to nourishment and detangling the beard, a good beard balm will have ingredients like beeswax that make it easier to achieve the look you want with your beard and keep it that way throughout the day. Additional ingredients like Orange Oil and Shea Butter will also help condition your mane.
With a proper conditioning regime established, you can say goodbye to the days of a sharp, tangled face forest and hello to a beard that is smooth, attractive and fierce.
