Beard wash, Beard shampoo, Beard Soap, Beard Cleanser - they all have one ultimate purpose - cleaning your beard. If you aren’t washing your beard with shampoo, you need to start now. Get yourself a decentbeard shampoo and give that bad boy a good scrub when you’re in the shower. Don’t try and use shampoo designed for head hair on your beard; the two types of hair are completely different and require specific products to keep them healthy. Shampoo and facewash can both strip the oils your beard needs to be healthy.
When you wash your beard with a product, make sure you rinse it thoroughly. Beards do need to be washed, but residue product buildup can also cause beard dandruff.
