Beard Grooming Guide – 7 Easy Steps To Apply Beard Balm

Beard balm is for the nourishment and conditioning of the beard. But it is also used for styling. However, it is heavier than beard oil and also a bit tricky to apply evenly. The basic requirement is to get a discoloured or a colourless beard balm. This means that it will look white but will not show when rubbed between your palms. Beard balm is also referred to as beard butter or wax. The wax used here is beeswax. So get one that feels hard but melts up easily when rubbed, just like butter.

A Step wise guide on How to Apply Beard Balm in 7 easy steps.

1. Make sure your beard is completely clean and dry before you start. A prior wash is a must.

2. For application, you need to start by taking a good amount of beard balm. Unlike beard oil, you need more quantity here.  Just scoop in one finger and that would be enough. Rub your hands and the balm should melt instantly.

3. Next you need to divide your beard into phases. The first phase will be for the longer beards, the part hanging down your chin and neck. Apply in downward motion from front and back. Then use your fingers to comb for full coverage. While you are at it, try to style and shape up your beard as per requirement. Men often roll and twist the ends for a pointy beard but if you have a scruff you can just try to narrow it in as much as possible.

4. Now you need another finger of the balm for your facial hair. Here you aim is to ensure the beard stays in and you do not have any lose hairs sticking out. Also if you have an inflated beard due to sleep or just wish to control it, push your beard in by making it sleek against your chin area.

5. Don’t forget the sideburns.

6. Comb upwards first for even coverage and then downwards again to set it in. You can then use your hands to style it up a bit or just bring it in control as per your requirement.

7. It is important to understand that beard balm is for a matte effect and does not give you a shiny look like beard oil. You need to scoop just as much as required in proportion to the beard or you may dilute it into few drops of beard oil. Some people also recommend water however not all balms go well with water. Make sure you read all instructions well before adding few drops of water.
