How to soften your beard in 10 steps.

A well-groomed beard is a true mark of distinction. That's why, at MANSCAPED™, we're here to help you master your style and soften up that scruff. The secret to a maintained beard is a delicate ratio of product and technique. Today, you'll conquer both. Say goodbye to that prickly, unruly facial hair, and get ready to experience the ultimate in beard luxury.

1. Hydrate from within:

Agua all day long. Drinking an ample amount of water each day promotes overall hair health, including the hair in your beard. Why do you think they call it flow? Channel the hydration from within and send it into your beard. Water keeps your hair wavy, lush, and lustrous. It also makes your beard easier to manage.

2. Cleanse and exfoliate:

The first step to a softer beard is proper cleansing and exfoliation. You have to let that beard breathe. Use beard shampoo for a thorough, hydrating clean. Try our very own delicately engineered formula that was designed to remove dirt, grime, and excess oil. Even if you're not using ours, make sure to get it sudsy, then work the shampoo deep into your beard for a scrubbing effect that frees and cleanses the roots of your ruggedness.

3. Condition regularly:

Just like the hair on your head, your beard craves moisture too. Incorporate high-quality beard conditioner into your grooming routine and even consider trying ours to make things easier. The leave-in conditioner from MANSCAPED™ is infused with coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E to restore your beard’s natural moisture after shampooing. The softening formula volumizes your hair, so you feel that smooth texture and lift—even on days that you don’t wash your beard. 

4. Embrace the power of beard oil:

You’re an oil man, or at least you should be. This natural resource is the primary element of your beard routine. Try our beard oil and witness the results of this formulation infused with sweet almond, sunflower seed, and jojoba seed oil to help bring moisture and shine back to your beard. It also replenishes the skin underneath, taking care of the base of your burliness. Apply a few drops of beard oil daily, massaging it into the beard and skin for optimal absorption.

5. Your perfect beard, in the balm in your hands:

Balm is the mending, melding, and molding element of your routine. Apply a small amount of beard balm to your hair, spreading it evenly to add texture, control, and softness. Our styling pomade puts every strand in its place with this lightweight, super smooth cream that’s easy to manipulate.

6. Trim regularly:

Maintaining a well-groomed beard is essential for its overall softness. With The Beard Hedger™, trim and shape your beard to eliminate split ends and keep it looking neat and tidy. Tackle any detail work with our Beard Scissors, crafted from stainless steel with an adjustable tension screw and finger rest for ultimate precision and ease of use.

7. Brush and comb:

A dedicated beard brush or comb can work wonders for softening your facial hair. Brushing and combing your beard regularly helps distribute natural oils, untangle knots, and train the hair to grow in the desired direction. Our boar-bristled Beard Brush does a lot of everything for your beard and the skin beneath: it exfoliates, cleanses, stimulates, massages, distributes moisture and oil, tames, de-frizzes, shapes, and shines. Perfect your beard styling with our dual-sided beechwood Beard Comb, a naturally anti-static tool designed to detangle knots for a neat lay.

8. A restoring plunge:

Give your scruff time to cool off. After washing your beard, finish off with a cold water rinse. Cold water helps seal the hair cuticles, resulting in smoother, softer beard hair. It also invigorates the skin and promotes blood circulation, stimulating healthy beard growth.

9. Things to avoid:

Hot water, hot shower, scraggly hair. Hot water can strip away essential oils from your beard, leaving it dry and brittle. Instead, lukewarm water will keep your follicles frolicking. Additionally, avoid using harsh shampoos and soaps that can strip your beard of its natural moisture. Our gentle, beard-friendly products will do the trick instead.

10. Time:

This last step, as obvious as it sounds, must be stated. Give your grooming time. A fully realized beard comes from the dedication and patience to persevere through rough patches and spotty times. Stick to your beard care routine and the results will come.

If you're looking to expand your beard maintenance game past just getting it softer, MANSCAPED™ has you covered every step of the way. Try our revolutionary new beard grooming tools found within The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit. This luxury package is a complete beard maintenance kit for the modern bearded gentleman—from trim to treatment, it’s all here.
