A man's beard is more than just facial hair. It is an expression of his personality. Just as our head hair can be fine, strong, straight, curly and in a wide variety of colours, so is our beard hair, and just as head hair needs a good cut and care, so does beard hair. For natural beard care, you need a beard comb to sort and style the hair, and a beard brush to care for the beard hair.You can supplement beard care with a special soap and a beard oil that is ideal for your skin. If your skin is healthy and your sebaceous glands are working optimally for you and your beard, all you need for beard care is a little shampoo and your beard brush with natural bristles.
You can find out why this is so here: Our body is smart, really smart. The male facial skin around the mouth and chin and from ear to ear produces beard hair every day. Beard hair is usually thicker, more firmly attached to the skin and often stays shorter than head hair. Whether head hair or beard hair, every hair that grows from our skin is made up of a cuticle, a fibrous layer and a medulla. Almost every hair is connected to a sebaceous gland that produces sebum around the clock and releases it into the skin and hair for maintenance. The skin is so clever that the sebaceous glands of the scalp produce a different composition of sebum than the sebaceous glands on the face, because scalp hair and beard hair need different care. Because the body is so clever, you can take advantage of this. With a beard brush made of natural bristles, you absorb the caring sebum from the skin into the natural bristles while brushing and release it back into the dry areas of the hair. The ideal beard care is exactly the composition of fats, oils and lipids that your skin produces for you. To get these into your hair, it is important to choose the best beard brush. Our beard brush is made of high quality, 100% pure boar bristle, the bristle tufts are perfectly effilated and the ash wood brush body is sturdy, durable and comfortable to hold. We recommend brushing with the beard brush in the morning and evening when your beard is dry and before cleansing with shampoo or soap. Since shampoo and soap degrease the skin, we recommend using both sparingly. Did you know that the beard brush is also very popular for flaky skin? Regular brushing with the beard brush stimulates blood circulation in the skin and thus increases the skin's ability to regenerate. Please remember to use your beard brush with natural hair only for dry beard hair. Ideally, you should sort wet beard hair with a beard comb made of wood or horn.
Hand-sawn beard combs have the advantage that the individual teeth are neatly worked, the base of the teeth and the tips of the teeth are rounded. If you choose a beard comb made of wood or horn, you will also have no electrostatic charge.
Horn is the same material as the beard hair, so a beard comb glides very gently through the hair. If you find the material horn unpleasant, you can choose between a handle comb with fine teetd brushh, a handle comb with coarse teeth or a beard comb without handle with coarse teeth for beard combs made of wood. The stronger the beard hair, the coarser the teeth should be.Once you have decided on a beard comb, you can choose your preferred wood. Cherry wood has an invigorating effect, maple wood is cheerful, service tree is fine-pored and soft, hornbeam is fine-pored and earthy, spearling is very smooth and plum wood is pure lively BEING for me. Just as every apple variety tastes different, every wood has a different character and you choose the wood that appeals to you the most and so you have your favourite beard comb. If you take a closer look at the woods, maple, cherry, apple and plum are not quite as hard as service tree, hornbeam and European aspen and absorb the fat of the skin more into the comb. This is found to be very pleasant by people with oily skin. Grooming the beard is part of the daily routine. A beard comb made of wood or horn can be used to comb, sort and style the hair.
Our Groetsch combs are made on site in the Pegnitz Valley near Nuremberg, the woods are mainly from the region and the production is CO2 neutral through the in-house hydroelectric power plant. Use, cleaning and care the beard brush with 100% pure boar bristles is best suited for brushing dry beard hair. The nourishing sebum from the skin is absorbed by the bristles and released back into the dry beard hair. The important thing is to get the brush on the skin and brush there. Whether you brush with or against the hair growth depends on your well-being. Clean beard combs with lukewarm water and a little soap and let them dry on a towel.
We hope you enjoy the most natural and effective beard care.
