Let's talk cleansing
Cleansing is an important part of your beard maintenance ritual. Soap as we have said time and time again does your delicate facial skin and hair, absolutely no favours. For cleansing your beard thoroughly therefore you need a specialised product. Look no further than the Beardo range of beard washes. Available in four variations (The Classic, The Black Velvette, The Irish Royale and The Old Fashioned) these gentle cleansers are excellent at getting the dirt and grime out of the beard and making the beard softer and ready to be styled.
Moisturisation is your friend
Moisturising your beard is the next step in getting it ready for the process of styling it. Moisture is a prerequisite for both a healthy as well as a well styled beard. Moisturisation can only truly be achieved with a good quality beard oil. What a beard oil does, is that it forms a defensive sheath around the hair follicles and ensures that dust and grime doesn't settle on it and dries it out. And you already know that the best product out there for this job is ours. Our beard oil range too is available in four variants (The Classic, The Black Velvette, The Irish Royale and The Old Fashioned). For those who may prefer a lighter texture in their moisturising agent you could try our lite oil (Beardo Lite Oil). And for those special occasions, when you need the absolute best, well we have the Godfather of them all to (Beardo The Godfather Beard Oil). With so much variety, you have no excuse to NOT moisturise!
Step out in style
Now that you're done, cleansing and moisturising your beard, the final and probably most fun thing is styling it. The most important thing when it comes to styling your beard is the hold. You can either go the polished way or the firm hold way. For this we have two options for you to choose from. The Beardo Beard Balm, is more for shine and soft hold, while the Beardo Hair Wax - Strong Hold is for a more long lasting and durable hold. Don't forget that after applying the wax or balm, it is important to ensure that you spread it evenly, and here's where our premium wooden combs really come in handy. Available in two variants (Shisham and Neem), these ought to be an important part of your DIY beard care and styling kit! Maintaining a beard that's as distinctive as that of Zeus himself is not rocket science and with this easy DIY beard kit, there's no reason you can't or shouldn't.
