STEP 1 : Cleaning and Conditioning Your Beard
During the first few weeks of growing a beard is when the most discomfort of itching is experienced. This is because the new sharp hairs scrubbing against the skin surface cause irritation.
Another factor is the shedding of dead skin cells from the face. These flakes of skin are no help either as the newly grown beard catches them and, if not purged properly, will cause further irritation and itching.
Instead of using regular hair shampoo on your beard, we recommend the use of the Abe & Jar Sailors Blend Beard Shampoo and Conditioner to reduce flaking of the skin. Sailors blend beard shampoo is designed to remove the dead cells and soothe the skin. Just like you maintain your head hair your beard needs conditioning to provide a soft, downy feel.
Regular scalp hair conditioner and shampoos contain harsh chemicals for the face which irritate the sensitive skin underneath.
Make sure to rinse thoroughly. Sailors Blend Beard Shampoo, like most quality beard shampoos, is designed to remove the dead cells and soothe the skin. The soft hairs will not scrape the follicles and irritate your skin.
