How to Repair Damaged Beard Hair

Posted by on

There are so many things that can cause beard hair damage including…

  • Not properly trimming beard hair.
  • Not keeping your beard moisturized.
  • Heat styling (yes, some men do blow dry and style their facial hair!)

Sadly, this damage often causes men’s beards to become frizzy and unmanageable.

Even worse, this damage can inhibit a man's ability to grow a beard to his desired length as well as cause irritation on his facial skin.

The bad news is that men unknowingly damage their beards every day.

The good damage can be fixed.

Keep reading to discover our 3-step method for repairing damaged facial hair.

Step #1 - Get a Proper Beard Trim

The first step in repairing damaged beard hair is to get a trim.

After all, once the hair is frizzy, split, or damaged due to heat, there’s not much you can do to repair the dead hair. This is why it’s important to trim the dead ends off.

Once you’ve had a trim, it will be easier for the hair that is still living to absorb nutrients and grow back healthy.

At the very least, cutting off the dead, frizzy hair will make your beard look healthier and more vibrant.

If you know how to trim your own facial hair safely with beard trimming scissors, you can easily give yourself a trim at home. We suggest doing a slight trim every 4-6 weeks as you continue to grow out new healthy beard hair.

If you don’t have a lot of experience with beard hair trimming, we recommend you let a professional give you a hand.

Visit your local barber, let him/her know your beard goals and concerns, and he/she should be able to get you set up with a plan that will help keep your beard trimmed and healthy.

Step #2 - Deep Condition Your Facial Hair with Coconut Oil

Once you’ve trimmed the unhealthy hair from your face, it’s important to get into a routine of nurturing your existing beard hair.

One way to do this is by deep conditioned your facial hair every few weeks.

We personally recommend conditioning your facial hair with coconut oil. Not only is coconut oil easy to find and inexpensive, but it also acts as a wonderful natural moisturizer and is a natural antibacterial and anti-fungal oil.

Best of all, coconut oil contains a good amount of vitamin E which helps keep skin and hair soft and healthy.

Here’s how to deep condition your facial hair in just a few easy steps…

  1. Purchase organic coconut oil from your local grocery store or health food store.
  2. Scoop a small amount of the oil onto your fingers. Coconut oil won’t hurt you, so if it takes a few tries to figure out the right amount for your beard length, no worries.
  3. Melt the oil while rubbing your fingers together.
  4. Stroke your fingers through your facial hair. Make sure you massage it into your facial skin as well as all of your facial hair.
  5. Let the coconut oil sit in your beard for 15 minutes.
  6. Jump in the shower and rinse out your beard.

Remember, coconut oil is an oil and can make your beard greasy if it’s used too often.

We recommend that you only deep condition once a month unless you have excessively dry facial skin or hair.  

Step #3 - Start Using a Quality Beard Balm or Beard Oil

Last but not least, we believe that routinely using a conditioning beard oil or beard balm is the most important step in maintaining a healthy, damage-free beard.

The reason: Beard oils and beard balms are made with natural oils and are formulated to keep your beard hair and facial skin hydrated and nourished

For instance, our Lucky Grooming Beard Oil contains coconut, patchouli, almond, and apricot oils which are all known for their ability to moisturize your facial hair, hydrate your skin, and help soften and tame your beard hair.

And, our Lucky Grooming Beard Balm contains dye-free, fragrance-free jojoba oil, beeswax, and mango butter that nourishes and softens facial hair while keeping it neat and tidy all day long.
