It’s no news that the state of a man’s beards could make or break his overall look. Some people even say that beards are to men what makeup is to women. If you are in doubt, look up pictures of Drake before and after he grew out his beards.
Taming afro-textured hair on your head already requires a great deal of care, especially if you’re growing it out. But, at least, you can go to a barber or a salon for this. With a beard, you have to care for it yourself.
Want to find out what you need to do to slay with your beards? Read on as I walk you through a few hacks that could help stimulate your beard growth and keep it looking lustrous and healthy.
1. Cleanse, Moisturize and Seal That Moisture In!
Usually, when people talk about great beards, they never have dry and scraggly-looking facial hair in mind. And why would they? Beards without moisture do not look very attractive. Plus, afro-textured hair thrives on moisture. That even makes it easier to tame your beard.
So, it would be best if you washed your beard often. After using your beard wash to cleanse your mane thoroughly, you are supposed to follow through with a non-comedogenic moisturizer and seal in all that moisture with beard oil.
Typically, most beard oils are concocted with essential oils that smell good. If you are particular about the smell, you could check out WiseBarbers’ best smelling beard oils list for recommendations.
