How to Overcome the Itchy Beard Phase

How to Overcome the Itchy Beard Phase

The itchy beard phase is a common struggle that many bearded men face. From dryness to irritation, this phase can sometimes be unbearable, leading some to consider shaving it off. However, there is good news! You can conquer this issue with the proper care, quality products, and patience and enjoy your beard in all its glory. Below, we've outlined a comprehensive guide to help you triumph over your itchy beard phase.

Understanding the Itchy Beard Phase

1. What Causes Beard Itch?

  • New Hair Growth: As new hair breaks through the skin, it can cause inflammation and itchiness.
  • Ingrown Hairs: Sometimes, new hair grows sideways or back on itself, leading to irritation.
  • Dry Skin: Lack of moisture can result in dryness and dandruff, or "beardruff."
  • Chemical Damage: Cheap beard oils with chemicals and alcohol can worsen the condition.

2. Symptoms

  • Redness and irritation
  • Constant urge to scratch
  • Flaky skin

How to Stop the Itch: A Step-by-Step Guide

1. Choose the Right Products

  • Invest in Quality Beard Oil: Braw Beard oils are 100% natural and made from beneficial ingredients such as hempseed, jojoba, and vitamin E. These oils soothe, moisturise, and stimulate hair growth.
  • Avoid Cheap, Chemical-filled Products: These can further dry and irritate the skin.

2. Adopt a Care Routine

  • Wash Regularly: Use an all-natural beard wash like Braw Beard Wash to keep the beard clean and moisturised.
  • Brush Your Beard: A medium-strength bristle brush will exfoliate the skin and detangle the hair.
  • Condition with Braw Beard Oil: Apply daily to keep the skin supple and the hair nourished.
  • Hydrate: Drinking enough water is critical to hydrating hair follicles.

3. Follow a Personalised Routine

  • Morning Routine: Consider a regimen that includes washing, towel drying, applying beard oil, combing, using beard butter, and brushing.
  • Experiment and Find What Works Best for You: Some may find instant relief, while others might need a few days.
