Of course you've read a lot of obvious beard growing tips and tricks. I mean, we bearded man always try to find new ways to make our beards grow better right?! However, have you ever heard about the surprise benefits of combing your beard? Grab your phone, open your notes app and get ready for a quick study session!
Before we begin with the benefits of brushing your beard, it may be worth mentioning that the quality of your brush also determines the quality of your beard. Try to stay away from plastic combs. Try getting your hands on a real brash with soft hair or a wooden comb.
1. Less dryness and itchiness, more moisture and shine!
Dryness, beardruff (beard dandruff) and itchyness are some of the biggest annoyances when first growing your beard out.
You tend to strip away a lot of healthy, natural oils whenever you wash up and use of scalp shampoos, harsh chemicals, and soaps can make this problem even worse. By using a good quality brush or comb instead of a plastic one, it'll help bring those follicles back to life.
By redistributing these oils evenly on the hair and beard strands, your hairs boast a natural shine without it feeling loaded and weighted down. This also adds a huge aid in protecting your hairs from becoming brittle and damaged. But wait, there's more. Your beard becomes ultra soft. Ask any huge bearded guy and he'll tell you that the brush is a game-changer.
2. Less breakage, frizz and splitt-ends!
Brushing your beard can drastically help the health of your beard in numerous ways, one being the prevention of breakage, frizz and split-ends. Getting rid of these problems means you won't have to manually trim those wirey hairs as often. The beard will look more natural and even.
The extra coating of your beard with natural sebaceous oils and nourishing beard oils can protect the follicles from outside damage.
3. Natural exfoliation!
Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. These resting dead particles clog up the pores and can lead to folliculitis and acne.
The stiff texture of Boars' Bristles will help get in the roots of each follicle to exfoliate and provide a natural solution for cleaning up your skin and beard. Exfoliation not only helps with many skin problems, it also stimulates blood circulation, which in turn can promote healthier and fuller beard growth.
4. May promote healthier & faster beard growth!
The act of brushing is essentially massaging the face, which in turn improves blood circulation to your hair follicles. Blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients are some of the most important factors when it comes to healthy hair and hair growth. A very common hair growth medication works the same way. I'm talking about Minoxidil. This medicine also promotes blood flow which in its turn promotes hair growth.
More blood flow to your hair follicles is one of the best things you can do for the health and development of your beard. However, you obviously won't achieve a huge beard just from brushing regularly. It's just general good practice to promote the massive amount of blood in the face, which is often neglected.
We really hope that you learned a thing or two. Keep caring for your beard and you WILL see results!
Until the next blog,
