Should beard be soft or hard?
Have you been wondering why your beard is soft or wirey? The answer is different for everyone. Some people have coarser hair and others have softer hair. Coarse hair might feel rough, but that doesn't mean it can't be soft when it's long enough to touch your face!
You might find your beard is wirey and sharp.
If your beard is wirey and sharp, don't fret: it's normal. You may need to trim the ends of it down to make it softer. Alternatively, you can use some beard oil or balm to help soften your beard.
Your beard can feel soft throughout the day.
Your beard can feel soft throughout the day. While you may have a coarse beard, it doesn’t mean that it will remain that way throughout the day. In fact, your natural oils play an important role in softening and moisturising your hair and skin.
In addition to genetics, some men experience bumps on their skin after shaving or trimming their beards because of ingrown hairs. These painful irritations are not only uncomfortable but also unsightly. To prevent them from occurring in your own facial hair, try exfoliating regularly with a gentle face scrub, which contains shea butter to help moisturise while removing dead skin cells without irritation—and thus stopping ingrown hairs before they begin!
The coarseness of your hair varies based on your genetics.
The coarseness of your hair varies based on your genetics. If you have parents with coarse hair, then you probably have coarse hair as well. And if you have parents with fine or thinning hair, then it’s likely that your own beard will be soft and wispy.
The only way to know for sure is by trying it out! If you are able to grow a beard at all—even if it starts out looking more like peach fuzz than a full-grown mane—then there’s no reason why your facial hair should not become as thick and dense as the rest of your body. But if you can’t grow even the smallest amount of peach fuzz on your face? Well then maybe it's time for some new shampoo...
Natural oils can help soften your beard.
You can also soften your beard by applying a beard oil. Beard oil is basically like hair oil, but for beards. It's made to help condition and moisturise the skin under your beard, which will keep it from becoming dry and flaky.
First, take a shower or wash your face with warm water (not hot) to remove any excess dirt or dead skin cells that might be clogging up the follicles in your beard. After you've done this, apply the beard oil directly to your hands and rub it into all sections of your beard—don't forget the neck area!
Beard oils are usually pretty thick so they don't take much of them at once (a few drops will do). You'll know when you've applied enough when there's no more left on the palm of one hand after rubbing it into both sides of your face over and over again!
Bumps are caused by ingrown hairs when you shave or trim.
Ingrown hairs are caused when a hair grows back into the skin, which can be painful. They're also not dangerous, but they can be annoying to deal with. The best way to get rid of them is by exfoliating and moisturising your face daily. If you have sensitive skin, try using products that contain tea tree oil or salicylic acid instead of harsher chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide or sulphur.
Sometimes brittle or dry ends are a sign you need to cut the ends off.
If you're experiencing a lot of breakage on the ends of your beard, it's probably because it's too long. The weight of the hair is causing the ends to split and break off. To remedy this, trim away any damaged or broken hairs with a pair of scissors or beard trimmer. This will help promote new growth that is healthier than that which was there before.
You may also notice that your beard has split ends if their appearance makes it look unevenly shaggy or unkempt. Trimming these out can make for a more uniformed look and feel, as well as improve overall healthiness by preventing further damage from occurring at the bottom where no one else sees them anyway!
If your beard feels dry, there's a solution for that.
If your beard feels dry, there's a solution for that. You can use some sort of oil, balm or wax to add moisture back into your facial hair. Beard oils are usually thinner than balms and waxes, so they don't make the skin beneath your beard feel greasy while applying them. A good beard oil should smell nice and have a light texture that absorbs quickly into the hair without leaving any heavy residue behind.
A great way to keep your face feeling soft is by using a beard conditioner or not washing it with soap every time before bedtime (which can make things worse). If you'd like more control over how much oil goes on top of what's already there—but still want something that won't leave too much residue—try using some type of comb instead!
In the end, it’s all about knowing what to look for when your beard feels dry. If you have a dry, coarse beard, then you should consider trying a new grooming regimen or switching up your products. If your beard is soft but brittle at the tips, then it may be time for a trim! And if you find that your natural oils aren’t enough to keep things smooth, try using some conditioner on those troublesome areas before bedtime tonight—and see how much easier tomorrow morning goes by taking care of yourself now
