Facial hair needs special attention. To keep it looking good, it is important that you take good care of it. Just as you care for your hair and scalp, your beard has the same need. Whether you opt for tough stubble or a full beard, the grooming products from 1922 by J.M. Keune keep the beard soft, shiny and give it extra strength. The 4 tips below will help you create the best beard care for your beard.
1. Wash your beard with shampoo
A beautiful beard starts with clean skin, just like your hair and scalp. The recommendation is to wash your beard 2-3 times a week. Our favorite is the 1992 by J.M. Keune Essential Shampoo. This is an all-in-one shampoo that you can use for hair, body and beard. So easy to include in your routine.
Don't wash your beard too hot
When you wash your beard, it is important to pay attention to the temperature of the water (this also applies to your regular hair, by the way). When the water is too hot, it dries out your skin and deteriorates the quality of your beard hair. It also causes your beard to break off faster and makes you feel itchy. So to maintain your beard properly, the tip is to keep the shower around 38 degrees.
2. Use a beard oil
A must have in your beard care regimen is a good beard oil. We are fans of the 1922 by J.M. Keune beard oil. Besides smelling great, this beard oil also provides extra care. A beard oil contains nutrients that make your beard stronger. It also makes your beard feel softer and shiny. It combats itching and irritation, and your beard becomes easier to style.
It is best to apply a beard oil immediately after shampooing. Then your hair cuticles are still open and it is easier for an oil to penetrate. This seals off the beard hairs nicely and protects your beard from external influences. You don't need to rinse out beard oil because the hair absorbs it naturally.
How to use beard oil?
Using the oil is very simple. You drop a few drops into the palm of your hand and then massage it well into your beard and the underlying skin.

3. Comb your beard regularly
To maintain your beard, you should regularly comb your beard. It is important to start combing from the early stages of your beard. It is common for your beard hairs to get a little tangled and stand in the wrong direction. This can cause a stinging and itchy feeling. By combing your beard in the direction where the hair follicles go, you will take away the irritation. To do this, use a fine comb so that you take all the beard hairs with you while combing.
4. Use a beard balm
Do you have a full beard and want to add some extra strength? Then use a beard balm. A beard balm is a light conditioner and gives a light firmness with a natural finish. This allows you to style your beard more easily. Shop our favorite beard balm here.
How do you use a beard balm?
Start with a moderate amount of beard balm and warm the beard balm in the palm of your hand. Then rub the balm fairly over your dry beard, working from top to bottom. Make sure the beard balm is also in contact with the skin, not just reaching the visible hairs. Use more where needed, but make sure your beard doesn't get too greasy. The end result is a healthy and shiny beard and skin.
