Posted by Michael Ogbebor on


Fall, winter and even early spring offer beards the chance to grow wild, unkempt and unmanaged. If your facial hair is not adequately cleaned, trimmed and kept in check, you are bound to see the effects of bad beard-grooming habits. 

Beard grooming is essential for our facial hair but often neglected. To avoid looking like a bear, we must learn how to care for them properly. But how do you begin? 

With some basic guidelines, this article will help you prepare your beard for the fall and winter season by covering everything from which tools you'll need at hand to how to prevent your beard from falling out during this transitional season.

The Benefits of Beard Grooming. 

Beard growth is an integral part of a man's overall appearance, and it is essential to keep your facial hair as healthy as possible from grooming it regularly. Its benefits are tremendous, and some include: 

  1. It adds to your masculinity. It helps you look more virile and enhances your overall appearance, which can help you stand out from the crowd. 
  2. A trimmed beard looks healthier and fuller than an untrimmed version of your beard. It helps you look more professional as well as mature. This is why many people in the corporate world prefer to keep their facial hair trimmed to a certain length and style.

The Essentials of Beard Grooming.

If you want to grow a healthy beard, it's vital that you are deliberate about taking care of it. You can't just let it grow out naturally and expect to get the results you want.

So, the first step in having a great beard is to prepare your skin for growth. Beard hair is not like regular hair; it takes time to grow fully. So, if you're going for one of those "I'm ready for winter" beards, some things can make this process easier.

  1. Beard Oil: Beard oils are a must-have item for any guy who wants his beard to look good. This oil softens the hair and makes them less prone to breakage and irritation from shaving. It also helps prevent split ends from forming at the end of each strand, making your facial hair look fuller and healthier.
  2. Beard Comb/Brush: A beard comb/brush is essential when starting with facial hair growth because they help remove any tangles or knots that may have formed while growing your beard or moustache. And since this tool can help prevent ingrown hairs, it's essential that you use one frequently during grooming sessions so that you don't experience any pain during your daily routine
  3. Beard Trimmer: A beard trimmer is an excellent tool for men who want to maintain their facial hair. There are many types of trimmers available, but they all have one thing in common: they trim the hair on your face. A professional barber will use a trimmer to shape your beard into a specific style that looks good on you.
  4. Beard Balm: Beard balm is a wax-like substance you can use to shape and style your beard. It helps keep your beard looking good, even through the roughest of days. This product can also be used to moisturize your facial hair so that it doesn't become brittle or dry, which can lead to breakage in your facial hair.

How To Prevent Your Beard from Shedding This Fall/ Winter. 

The fall and winter can be great times to grow a beard. With the cooler temperatures, you'll find that your beard is healthier and more manageable than it is during the warmer months. If you plan on growing a beard in the fall or winter, here are some tips to help you prepare your beard for the season.

  1. Using a beard oil/bam. 

Beard oil and beard balm are two products that many men use to help maintain their beards. However, neither product should be used in excess because they can clog pores. So, while it might feel good to apply the product every day, try not to overdo it! You don't want your skin to become irritated or inflamed.

  1. Reduce Beard Wash Frequency

With the change of  the cooler weather, we recommended only washing the beard once a week due to the dry conditions. Generally in the summer when theres hotter more humid conditions we recommended to wash 1-2 times a week but in this instance, once a week works just fine. When washing the beard, it strips it of its natural oils so reducing the amount of times per week will help combat the dry weather condition.

  1. Use a soft bristle brush:

Brushing your beard with a soft bristle brush will help to distribute the natural oils from your scalp down to the ends of your beard. This will help to keep your beard healthy and hydrated, which will, in turn, help to reduce shedding.

  1. Trim your beard regularly: 

Trimming your beard regularly will help to remove any split ends or dead ends, which will help to keep your beard looking healthy and prevent shedding.

      5.Use a conditioner

Conditioning your beard regularly with a product made specifically for beards will help keep it moisturized, reducing the friction between individual hairs when they rub against each other while you're wearing them.


We have covered much important information in this article. This will help anyone, whether they are just beginning a beard journey or are already well on their way. No matter what state your facial hair is in, there are things you can do to make sure it is healthy and robust.

Prepping your beard for the cold is a two-step process. You must ensure that you're both physically and mentally prepared for the climate change. This will help keep you sane during these colder months and keep your beard healthy, so it doesn't shed prematurely. 

Shaving will be easier if your beard is prepared for the colder temperatures.

We hope this article has provided you with helpful information and tips to help keep your beard looking great this winter. Here’s a Winter Hack Video on Prepping Your Beard Below:
