Split ends are no fun! The misery when your girlfriend runs her nails through your beard, that sudden move closer to her is not a response to her romance, you came closer to avoid her pulling your beard much further, it hurts like hell. Those cheap plastic combs have not done you any justice, creating all that static on your beard making it frizzy.
Growing a full beard, you need to prevent split ends by all means. Split ends are caused by over dryness in beard. This is often caused by too much exposure to the heat of the sun and over use of a dryer or beard straightener.
Other causes of split ends are using the wrong type of shampoo, dyeing your beard to cover up grey hair, long beard, too much combing and poor diet.
How Do I Fix My Split Ends?
Using quality beard grooming products made with natural ingredients.
Clean your beard and the skin beneath 2 – 3 times a week (Depending on the length of your beard) with a 3 in 1 Wash and Beard Conditioner to strip away excess oil. Wash beard as frequently as it requires to avoid over usage.
You can’t do anything about the sun, good hydration and moisture is going to protect your beard from that. Do not blow dry your beard, to dry beard after a wash or bath, gently pat dry with a towel.
Don’t dye your beard but if you must, put as much effort in taking good care of it by washing, conditioning and moisturising your beard regularly. Beard Activator and Shine Beard Oil made with sunflower oil, argan oil and jojoba oil are the perfect combination to score proper hydration, moisture and shine in beard, lock in that moisture with the Shine Beard Balm which helps to tame your beard reducing flyaway and unruly hair while deeply conditioning and protecting your beard.
Use Beard Scissors to trim split ends or you get the help of a professional barber ( No clippers if you want to grow out your beard ). Trim beard every 2 – 3 weeks.
Combing beard helps to evenly distribute beard oil but combing too often can damage your beard. Comb your beard not more than 3 – 4 times a day. Invest in a quality comb, plastic combs are cheap and easily accessible but they can damage your beard. Plastic combs create statics and with their jagged edges can break hair and create split ends. Our Sandalwood Comb is a great recommendation, it’s non-static, with fine finishing and does not cause tangles or snags. Finish your styling with a Beard Brush made with boar bristles for the perfect shape.
Lastly, eat healthy; eat protein, white meat, eggs, seafood, yogurt and milk, also take vitamins that help hair growth.
