How to Build a Beard Care Routine

beard care for all men’s hair types


It is important to take care of your beard, especially if you are trying to grow a thick and voluminous beard. The best way to achieve this is by using a healthy beard care routine that fits your hair needs. Whether you are trying to fill in a patchy beard, make it thicker, or retain a healthy length, here are the best beard care products to add to your routine.

Our beard products work for all hair types.

Beard Wash 

A healthy beard wash should be free of drying alcohols, sulfates, parabens, and harsh chemicals that are toxic to your facial hair and your skin. Our beard shampoo is all-natural, and pH-balanced for a gentle beard cleansing. It removes dirt and oils, repairs damaged facial hair, and promotes skin health through hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Beard Conditioner

Our beard conditioner is used to moisturize dry hair, minimize breakage, and reduce shedding through proper nourishment. For men looking to give their beard a healthy shine while keeping their beard tangle-free and manageable, use our fragrance-free beard conditioner. It is a rich and creamy conditioner that reduces the amount of pulling during your grooming routine which reduces premature hair loss, thinning, and any patches. 

Beard Balm vs Beard Oil

Men, you should be using both a beard balm and a beard oil for a fuller-looking beard. They each offer their own unique benefits in maintaining a healthy beard care routine.

Our Stimulating Hair and Beard Balm is a butter-like formula that uses clean ingredients to help nourish, soften, and stimulate your beard as well as your scalp. It can be used on your head and your face to relieve dry, itchy skin with its deep moisturizing properties. Our men’s beard balm is perfect for all hair and skin types, especially those with dry, sensitive skin, thick coarse hair, or any color-treated hair. 

Our beard oils, the Beard Magic and the Beard Oil, are used to stimulate beard growth at the roots and retain hair length by sealing in the nourishing ingredients. The Beard Magic is applied at the skin and roots, whereas the Beard Oil is worked through the lengths of your beard to lock in the moisture. 

If you are using the beard balm and beard oils at the same time, apply the beard balm first, Beard Magic second, then follow up with the Beard Oil.

How Often Should I Wash My Beard?

You should wash your beard as often as needed, on average 1-3 times per week. If you have dry skin, be cautious of overwashing your beard, and be sure to apply the beard balm and oils frequently. For those with oily skin or combination skin, wash more frequently to prevent dirt buildup. 

Please view each product page for more information on how to apply and how often to use them. 

Steps to Healthy Beard Care

Here are the steps to using Bask and Lather beard products:

  1. Using lukewarm water, cleanse your beard with our beard wash and conditioner
  2. While your beard is slightly damp, apply the beard balm by running the product through your beard with your fingers
  3. Depending on the length and density of your beard, you can brush or comb out your beard with the balm in it
  4. Apply the Beard Magic at the base of your beard and massage it with your fingers or our massager
  5. Then apply the beard oil throughout your beard and style it for the day 

The beard oils can be applied daily, especially if you are looking to stimulate beard growth.
