It is said that the beard is men’s pride. It is also a common problem to see that the beard is hard, tough, and rough. Here we will provide you with a rough beard but soft too.

How To Soften Your Beard

Whether your beard is rough or soft, there’s a way to get it to the soft fluffy you want it to be. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Reasons Why Your Beard Feels Rough 

There are a few reasons why you have a rough beard which can be due to several different issues with either products you’re using or not maintaining routines. Here are some of the reasons why it might feel a little rough: 

Are You Using The Wrong Products?

It can be really easy to use the wrong products for your beard that can remove the natural oils from it.

Most men probably think that using shampoo and conditioner is a good idea but it is not meant for your beard hair.

The hair on your head and on your face are completely different and need to be treated within different products for the best result. 

You will be looking for a healthy looking beard and using the incorrect products will remove any of the natural oils and completely dry it out if you’re not using other products after as well. 

Natural Causes 

You also need to think about the different types of weather your beard will be coming into contact with.

This is both cold and hot weather which can also dry your beard out during the day.

We know you cannot avoid going outside to live your life, but there are ways you are able to protect your beard from this and it will be listed further down in the article. 

Cutting Your Beard 

Like any type of hair, your beard will grow and from all of the natural elements drying the hair out, it can cause some split hairs.

These are very easy to spot because they will look a little frazzled at the end and need some good TLC.

If you are someone who wants to trim their own beard, you need to make sure your scissors are very sharp.

If they are not shar it can just cause more split ends, which is definitely not what you want. 

Water Your Beard 

Drinking lots of water is not only good for your beard but also your overall health.

If you’re dehydrated, it can affect your beard and make it much dryer.

This is a small fix but every little helps when it comes to keeping your beard and body full of moisture and helps it become softer.

Making your beard softer is all about your maintenance and routine with just loving your beard.

There are hundreds of different sets you can purchase to get you started on your beard maintenance journey.

They usually include a beard comb, scissors to trim your beard and oils/moisturizers to keep it looking nice and healthy. 

Oils For Your Beard 

If you’re looking to avoid having an itchy beard, oils are great for making them much less dry.

It also helps to soften those spiky little bristles in your beard which can be super annoying for most!

During the day, your beard will lose quite a bit of the natural oils it is supposed to have which is reinstated with the oil products.

Not only does it replace the oil lost but it also helps the dryer skin underneath as well. 

Some men can get flaky skin underneath their beard which can be replenished using certain oils and help your skin look more alive too!

It is recommended that you use oils about two times a day to top up after being out and about during the day. 

Beard Balm 

This one is less about softening your beard and more about protecting it from the harsh outdoors and UV drying your skin and hairs out.

Balms are used for both styling your beard, making it have a thicker look and also putting a coat of protection on which will ultimately make your beard stay soft.

However, you might need to add in some of the other products to help keep that beard softer for longer during the day. 

Waiting For It To Be Softer

It might take a few weeks for the soft beard to start appearing different and more vitalized.

However, you need to be maintaining these routines of looking after your beard.

If you don’t, you will not get the same result and they won’t be as effective.   

If you buy the beard shampoo and conditioner, you should be using this every three days because you don’t want to wash it too much because that will also remove natural oils even more. 

Beard conditioner is a great product to use because it gives you that shine afterwards that will make you very happy.

You don’t want to be using too much because you will also have the added oil throughout the day. 


Overall, if you’re looking to have a lovely soft beard, here are some of the things you need to be looking out for and the solutions to those problems.

It is all about maintaining your beard routine for those amazing, soft results. 

Hopefully this guide has shed some light on the natural processes that can affect your beard as well as the product issues.

You need to be aware of how your beard can become dryer throughout the day and it also helps if you’re eating and drinking well too. It is all about the skin that is underneath.

You might start to see dryness and feel itchiness which can be really frustrating on a day to day basis. Start your beard journey today and love your beard!
