Ask anyone that has ever grown a beard before what their secret to growing a great beard would be and they would tell you it is shampooing and conditioning. As soon as your beard reaches several weeks, it would normally become itchy and while using regular hair shampoo and conditioner works to relieve the itchiness, there are many shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for men’s beards.
There are several companies that release shampoo and conditioners just for beards, but two of them are the best. Professor Fuzzworthy’s and Beardsley will give you everything you need to maintain your beard and here are four of the best from these two popular companies.
Beardsley Ultra Shampoo and Conditioner
This product retails for around $13 and the 8 oz. package will last a good amount of time depending on the amount you use. The importance of this product to the health of your skin and beard will be evident after the first use.
While many men have no issues using regular hair conditioner and it does work to an extent, beard conditioners like this Ultra Conditioner from Beardsley are specially formulated for use with beard hair. The thickness discrepancy of beard hair when compared to scalp hair is obvious and it takes a product like this to get the job done right.
This conditioner features extracts of wild cherry fruit and golden seal and marigold flowers. What this does is give the hair an added boost. The conditioner also helps to relive and sooth the skin below your beard, eliminating all those itchy moments that make many beginner beard growers shave their beard after two weeks.
There are also natural ingredients in this product that will help to promote tissue growth and the effect of the marigold extracts are known as an antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory product. The company recommends using this product in conjunction with their Ultra Shampoo which we will cover below.
Much like the conditioner from Beardsley, this item will cost you $13, but it will be money well spent to ensure the health of your beard and skin. This product also comes in an 8 oz. container that is also specially formulated for beard hair. You will be left with a clean and fresh look and feeling after using this product and with a wild berry scent, will have a fresh smell cascading from your beard. When applying this product in the shower, a little goes a long way. Just massage small amount into your beard and work it through. Once this is done, Beardsley says to rinse thoroughly and apply their conditioner to complete the entire process.
Professor Fuzzworthy’s Beard Care Balm and Gloss Conditioner
At about $14, this product is the most expensive on this list, but it will give you long-lasting benefits and will make you a believer in Professor Fuzzworthy’s and their products.
This product is one of the most popular in this company’s line of products and has developed a reputation on the market as being one of the most used for men with beards.
The company has been working on finalizing their formula for this product since they opened in 1993 and this product is the end result of decades of work. It features only natural plant oils which work to seal in moisture and protect your hair. Say goodbye to itchiness with this conditioner!
Professor Fuzzworthy’s Beard Shampoo
The shampoo from Professor Fuzzworthy’s retails around about $13 which puts it right in line with what you would pay for the same product from Beardsley. This product is a chunky natural shampoo bar that is rich in castor oil and conditioning oil, leatherwood beeswax, and honey.
It can gently cleanse your beard leaving you with a healthy, fluffy, and shiny beard. It also features antiseptic essential oils like Kunzea and Lavender which will also help improve the health of your skin.
When you use this product, you will be left with an earthy and masculine smell that does its job of cleaning your beard without worry.
To cap off the ingredients list, this product also uses cocoa powder, Tasmanian seaweed extract, leatherwood honey, coconut castor, olive, and Mount Wellington spring water.
