Not so long ago it was synonymous with lack of aesthetics, today it is desired by many men. Well-kept, properly trimmed and even colored – the beard is back in style. How to take care of it to make it look aesthetically pleasing?
There is no disputing the fact that the hair that grows on a man’s chin is very different from the hair on his head. What is there to say about them? The fact that they are definitely thicker, much drier and, unfortunately, but quite rough. Many men also complain about the fact that the hair on the chin is prone to twist. That’s why it’s important to take good care of them, a bit different than the ones on your head, but their care is also very important
Just like you choose the right hair dye for your hair type, you should also use cosmetic products that are specially formulated for your beard. The dyes used for hair could simply harm the overall condition of the beard.
The ABCs of coloring a man’s beard
Artificial ingredients in cosmetics we say emphatically: NO! Compounds that contain ammonia and all sorts of parabens are not healthy for the skin, especially the skin around the beard and face. These are extremely sensitive areas, susceptible to any abrasions
Men who want to dye their beard, for example to cover its natural gray color, should bet on the most natural preparations. Such cosmetics will not stain the skin and, most importantly, will not leave unwanted stains on it. The coloring process itself is important. Of course, if it is done by a barber in a beauty salon, we do not have to worry about the end result, because the specialist will use his knowledge and experience to carry out the coloring as accurately and safely as possible
Beard coloring works best for men who have quite a large beard and not just barely grown hair. Before coloring yourself, you will need to think about what effect you want and choose the coloring agent in this regard. We can divide dyes into four types: coloring shampoos, coloring tonics, for opaque (resistant) beard dyes, and the natural dyes themselves, such as henna or any coloring lotions
The first of these products gives a short-term coloring effect, the others are correspondingly more durable. Natural dyes color the skin the strongest. Using colouring shampoos is very simple. It is enough to combine paint and oxidant, mixing them thoroughly. It is best to apply the prepared preparation on the beard with a brush. “It is best to keep the mixture on the beard for up to 10 minutes for the color to take on the desired hue.
Beards are back in fashion and a well groomed, elegantly trimmed and colored beard can become a true attribute of masculinity. Men should also keep in mind not to color their beards too unnaturally. Blond hair should not be dyed a darker shade right away. It is best to start with a gentle darkening.
