If you’ve been struggling to style your beard, don’t be too harsh on yourself - sometimes you just need to be pointed in the direction to get you back on track. It’s easy to forget that your facial hair is coarser than the hair on your head (if you’re lucky to still have some), so you’ll have to put in a bit more time and attention in order to keep it hydrated and easy to style.
Maybe you have all the gear and no idea, or you’re looking for some guidance on where to begin. This article will help break things down for you, so all eyes will be on your beloved beard, for all the right reasons.
One of the most important products when it comes to shaping your beard is a high-quality beard balm. Beard balm is a pomade made by blending oils, butters and fragrances. As well as acting as a leave-in conditioner for your beard - it also doubles as a styling and shaping aid, providing extra hold and making your beard look thicker and fuller.
Earnest Empire beard balm has a blend of Mango, Olive and Kokum Butters plus Apricot Oil (non-greasy) and Vitamin E that will leave your beard and skin hydrated, nourished and easy to style. It’s important to make sure that the beard balm you choose contains natural ingredients (it is going on your face after all) including good quality natural butters - so it’s easy to work the balm into your beard. Here is a link to Earnest Empire Beard Balm.
Next up is beard oil. Frequent use of Earnest Empire Beard Oil will help make coarse, hard to control hair, much easier to style.
