How often should I wash my beard?

If you have a beard, chances are it's pretty important to you. And if your beard is important to you, then it follows that washing it is also probably quite important. So I'm here to answer the question of how often should I wash my beard?

You can wash your beard as much as you like.

You can wash your beard as often as you like. While a little oil is good for conditioning, too much will weigh down your beard and make it look flat. If you're going for the oiled-up look, use a dry shampoo or beard oil instead of washing with regular shampoo.

At the end of the day, it's really up to you how often you want to wash your beard; just be sure that whatever method of washing works best for your skin type and facial hair type (i.e., dry face with coarse hair).

Washing your beard too often can dry it out, so stick to three times a week to start.

Washing your beard too often can dry it out and make it brittle, so work with your skin type. If you have a normal or oily skin type, that's great. But if you're on the dry side, washing your beard every day may not be the best idea. Instead, start by washing three times a week to see how your skin reacts—and then adjust from there.

If you're like most people with a full beard and want to keep it looking as healthy and shiny as possible, then we recommend using an all-natural shampoo that doesn't contain any harsh chemicals that might cause irritation.

If you use conditioner, use it after every shampoo.

Conditioner is great for your beard because it moisturises, softens and adds shine to your hair. It also has the added benefit of making it smell good. You should use conditioner on your skin too—it’s an excellent way to keep the skin under your facial hair soft and moisturised.

Beard oil is a good way to moisturise without weighing your beard down.

It’s important to use a good moisturszer for your face and beard. Beard oil is always a good choice, but if you want something lighter that won’t weigh down your beard, consider using jojoba or coconut oil instead. You can apply this right under your beard as well as on top of it where the hair is longer. It will make your facial skin soft and hydrated while also giving some shine and colour to your beard. Also note that applying it directly underneath can help keep stray hairs in place so they don’t get caught in things like zippers or buttons on shirts when you tuck them into collars (this has happened to me).

Washing and conditioning your beard is an important part of maintaining healthy hair and skin.

Washing and conditioning your beard is an important part of maintaining healthy hair and skin. If you don’t wash your beard daily, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria. In addition, not washing enough will cause problems like dry skin and dandruff on the neck area.

So how often should you wash? The answer to this question depends on several factors including:

  • Your lifestyle - generally speaking, if you exercise or work outdoors then washing daily is recommended.

  • Your scalp condition - if you have sensitive skin then once every other day might be better for you than daily washes with shampoo

  • How long has it been since your last shave - longer beards are more likely to get dirty than short stubble so they may need more frequent washing


We know that sometimes it can feel like there are a million things in life to do, and washing your beard might not be at the top of your list. But keeping it clean is important to keep it looking good, smelling great and feeling healthy. Washing once or twice a week will help keep dandruff away, while conditioning every time you shampoo will add moisture back into your beard without weighing it down. If you don’t want to use conditioner or oil on your skin underneath then just make sure you’re using an exfoliant regularly so that dead skin cells don’t build up inside those follicles!
