Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

How To Prep Facial Hair For Beard Shaving

Shaving your beard can be a daunting task, whether you recently started growing it or you've had facial hair for years. Fortunately, a little preparation can make the process go smoothly. That's why it's important to make sure that you treat your facial hair and skin properly before shaving in order to avoid irritation and razor burn. Continue reading to learn how to get your beard ready for a shave.

Start With a Clean Beard

The first step of a beard shave is to clean your beard thoroughly. Use a mild soap or beard shampoo and water to remove any dirt, oil, or sweat from your facial hair. Rinse thoroughly.

Condition Your Beard

Once your beard is clean, you'll want to soften it up so that it's easier to shave. You can do this by using a beard conditioner or natural oils like jojoba oil or coconut oil. Apply the conditioner or oil to your beard and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off. You can rinse off the conditioning product with cold water to close the pores on your face and help reduce irritation.

Use a Lotion or Shaving Cream

Next, you'll need to prepare your skin for beard shaving by using a pre-shave oil or lotion. This will help to protect your skin from the sharp razor blade and prevent irritation. If your skin gets irritated, it may break out, bleed, or become inflamed.

Once you've applied the pre-shave oil, take a hot shower or use a wet washcloth to steam your face for a few minutes. This will open up your pores and make it easier to get a close shave.

Use a Sharp Razor

Now you're ready to shave your beard! Be sure to use a sharp razor and shaving cream or gel to avoid nicks and cuts. Shave in the direction of your beard growth to prevent irritation. You may have to switch directions as you shave from different angles.

When you're finished, rinse your face with cold water. After that, apply a post-shave balm or lotion to soothe your skin. Shaving can irritate sensitive skin, even if you go slowly and use a sharp blade. Moisturizing your skin before and after each shave helps keep it healthy and smooth.

Beard shaving doesn't have to be a hassle. With these simple steps, you can easily prep your beard for a shave and get smooth, clean results.
