Make sure to wash your beard with a men’s natural shampoo 2 – 3x a week. This will keep your beard clean, smelling great, and prevent any build up from accumulating in your beard (sweat or excess oil). Your beard’s hair is no different than the hair on top of your face. There’s no need to buy a special beard wash, it’s nothing more than overpriced shampoo. The best shampoo for men is sulfate free and uses natural ingredients. Do you really want to put chemicals in the hair that surrounds your mouth?
