Perhaps the most under-rated step of beard care is the washing and conditioning. Before you reach for your head & shoulders, consider this: does your beard feel the same as your hair?
Commercial shampoos can be drying and irritating to the face, so beard washes are specifically formulated to cleanse without causing dryness. Used regularly, they will keep your skin dandruff-free and your hair clean of excess oil and dirt. To go the extra step, condition your beard to keep the hairs strong and healthy. Anyone close to you won't mind either, as conditioner keeps the hairs soft and smooth, rather than wiry and coarse.
