Short Beard Care Tips

Growing a great beard requires proper beard care. Knowing how to care for a short to medium beard is important for healthy growth and not all in the beard gang want long beards. 

When using a brush on a short beard, be careful not to irritate the skin. If you have a stubble beard or only a couple weeks of growth, brush less frequently until you've grown it out some more.

Brushing with a natural hairbrush acts as a natural treatment for your beard because it helps distribute your skin’s natural oils evenly throughout your facial hair. Daily brushing helps to exfoliate and massage the skin while softening facial hair.

At this length, you should keep washing your beard once-twice a week, but no more unless you get particularly dirty at work. Our activated charcoal wash is a once a week detox, so you shouldn't use it more than once a week or you'll dry out your beard. This should be followed up with beard oil. When applying beard oil, make sure you don’t just rub it on the outside, or top layer of your beard. It’s important to get it to the hair underneath, especially the dense hair under the jaw. You want to massage right down to the skin. After you finish, then wait a few minutes and follow it up by applying beard butter. If you aren't trying to style your beard, then you won't need the beard balm right now. The main difference between balm and butter is beeswax. We recommend our beard oils and beard butter to give your short beard all the nutrients it needs, but if you were only going to use one product, then we recommend the butter, which can also be used as a lotion.

Typically, for this length of beard, the most important thing is ensuring that the beard tapers lightly to blend the sideburns and the underside of your chin. If you made the wise decision to head to the barbers, maintaining the line around your jawline is much easier as you can use their expert line as a guide. We also carry razors if you are skilled enough to handle it yourself. The short beard is easy to grow for most and doesn’t take a lot to maintain.
