You might think that all there is to growing a beard is, well just growing it, but you would be mistaken. Like the hair that grows on top of your head, you need to take care, nurture, and nourish your beard by washing, trimming, conditioning, and brushing it. In other words, to keep your beard looking tip top, you need to get ready to put some work into it.
Yes, you have to wash your beard. No you cannot just wash it with water and hope for the best. The hair on your face is exposed to the elements, food, drink, and all types of dirt and grime. As such, you need to give it a good old wash at least a couple of times a week. Thesee shampoo bars from Primal Suds are perfect for the job as they will get rid of any grime and leave your beard hair clean, soft, and smelling lovely.
Then it is time to slather your beard in some oil to keep it lustrous and extremely touchable.

Rugged nature do a great range of hair clays and waxes that are great for keeping unruly beards in check. They come packaged in metal tins and scented with lemongrass, cedarwood, or sandalwood.
