It makes your beard rough and tangled. As such, it becomes more difficult to wash off the product when you try to rinse. Leaving too much product in your beard can make it even rougher. Not to mention that the cleaning agents in the shampoo or soap do not work as effectively as usual, when in contact with hard water, due to the excess of minerals.
Moisturizing ingredients are generally oils, because they’re natural and typically very safe. While oils may sound like they might make your hair too greasy, not all oils are the same. There are a lot of “lightweight” oils that don’t clog pores or make your skin or hair greasy, and these are usually the ones that come in beard balm. Oils like avocado and coconut are common because they exhibit these properties and have extra benefits as well, such as being antioxidant, which protects your cells from free radicals, which can not only make you look old over time but make your skin and hair look less healthy in the short term.
My first question here would have to be what are you using to wash this creature of yours? Soap, shampoo? My suggestion would be to try our cleansing oil. This is a non soap cleanser that you can use on your face and beard. Pump it into your palm and massage it into your skin, and through your beard like a shampoo, however this won’t produce any lather. Rinse it out with warm water. Cleansing oil could be good for you, because it won’t strip your hair of it’s natural oils, which is sounds like you really need.
Choosing the right beard growing oil can seem overwhelming. We are big believers in reading labels at The Mod Cabin. Anyone can say they have the best beard oil but the proof is on the label. The first ingredient listed on the label is what is used most. The last ingredient listed is used least. Make sure your beard oil has either jojoba or argan listed as the first ingredient. As a general rule you do not want more than a few ingredients in your beard oil. This is because the most beneficial oils are generally the least processed so they do not need additives. We recommend avoiding beard oils that add Vitamin E. The right beard oil will already have ingridients like argan that contain naturally occuring Vitamin E.
A beard that feels “oily” is no fun. Using too much beard oil can get in your mouth, make your food taste funny, stain your clothes, or get on your significant other when you lean in for a kiss. You want to lightly glaze your beard with the oil, and rub it in so that every strand can absorb it. If your beard feels oily or slick afterwards, then you probably used too much.
There’s a lot else to like about this oil: it comes in a dark amber glass that extends the shelf life of the oil by protecting it from UV light rays and oxidation; it has a manly scent, and its easy-to-use dropper enables you to put just the right amount of product in your hand.
We’ve talked about using a blow dryer in our videos, but usually, it comes with a bit of a disclaimer to keep an eye on it and use it in moderation. If used too much it could dry up those follicles and cause split ends. To combat this, you can hold the hair dryer further away from your beard, use a medium heat setting, or even use the cool setting. All of this will help make sure your beard doesn’t get damaged. Just make sure you’re using an oil or balm to keep it moisturized after it’s dry.

In pre-Islamic Arabia, men would apparently keep mustaches but shave the hair on their chins. Muhammad encouraged his followers to do the opposite, long chin hair but trimmed mustaches, to signify their break with the old religion.

Many of the best trimmers are good for wet and dry use, i.e., you can both use it in the shower and/or with shave gels, lotions, and foams. Waterproof trimmers are usually easier to clean, as well.
