You just got your shiny, new Mountaineer Brand Beard Care Kit in the mail. It's packed with absolute beard care goodness and you're anxious to get the ball rolling and be on your way to whisker perfection. The contents of the burlap bag are laying in front of you, waiting to be massaged into your beard, and just when you think you're ready- you're stumped.
Wash, oil, balm, brush? How do I use this stuff? Do I wash it first? Do I wash it last? Oil, balm, then brush? Or is it balm, brush, oil?
It's a little confusing, and maybe even a bit intimidating to the beard care newbie. Worry not, oh bearded one. We're here to assist you. Below is a step-by-step process guide, along with a few pointers, to get you started.
Step 1: WASH
Wash your beard in the morning while showering. The amount you use depends on the size of your beard. You want to make sure you work up a nice lather, then thoroughly wash your beard and the skin beneath it.
Ah, that smells good.
Here's a little pointer- try not to wash your beard more than three times per week. Your face naturally produces sebum oils, and your beard needs them to be healthy. On non-wash days, simply rinse with water and continue with the steps below.
Step 2: OIL
Again, the amount of oil you use depends on the size of your beard, but you want to be sure you're using enough. Massage it into your beard and distribute throughout. Make sure you don't forget your mustache!
Tips? Don't use too much. This isn't a water-based product. Your beard and skin need to absorb the goodness in order for it to work properly.
Step 3: BALM
This is what we consider to be a leave-in conditioner for your facial forest. Remove the amount you need and massage it into your beard, making sure your skin gets some love from the balm as well. This is also a very good styling agent, which you will see in the final step below.
Eh hem, pay close attention to this- when you have the desired amount of balm in your hand, rub your hands together until the product liquefies. That way you won't find yourself frustrated due to picking large chunks of product out of your beard.
Step 4: STYLE
This part is easy. Brush and style your beard as desired. The balm will help to shape it, but if you're looking for some crazy good hold, make sure you try our Heavy Duty balm. It's also great for taming unruly hairs with a mind of their own.
That's it! That's all there is to it. Pretty soon you'll be able to do this whole routine in your sleep... although if that starts to happen we recommend seeing a doctor, because sleep walking can be potentially dangerous to you and others.
