Is your beard not looking as good as it used to? Are you confused about the proper way to wash your beard? You might even ask how many times do I wash my beard per week? Are you curious about the different products that can be used to maintain your beard? We get these questions all the time, so sit back and relax and read on for some tips and tricks.

Over washing your beard and not washing your beard enough can result in a host of different problems. The key is to figure out your own beard and what works for you.

While there isn't an exact number of times you should wash your beard a week. It depends on your beard hair texture, your natural-oil production, etc. But paying attention to the little signs your beard is giving you can help you come up with the best washing schedule. Signs of over-washing include an increase in split-ends and excessive dandruff. Also, if your beard is being cleaned too often, it may look less shiny and frizzier and prone to breakage.

Washing your beard too often can also impact the texture of your hair. A total lack of moisture from stripping oils can also cause dry, flaky skin and as your skin underneath dries out so does your beard. If your beard hair begins to lose its shine, we suggest using moisturizing or styling products like beard oil, balm, or butter, that can help restore the hair cuticles by making them more soft, manageable and, most important, hydrated.

However, for some, over washing your beard is not the problem. You can also not wash it enough. Like we said above. It all depends on you and all the different variables in your life. From your genetic make up to where you live or work. It all affects the outcome. So, you still need to wash your hair and beard regularly for optimal scalp and hair health because not washing enough can cause hardcore dandruff, irritation, clogged pores, breakouts, and even hair loss. Let's be honest, nobody wants that! So how do you get it right?

 We recommend starting out by washing or shampooing your hair and beard every other day and go from there. On the days you don’t shampoo we still recommend using conditioner or just giving it a good rinse. Go from there and adjust accordingly.

This article is here to help you maintain and keep your beard just how you like it. Keep reading to learn the steps on how to properly wash your beard and other products you can use to maintain the healthy-looking beard you want.

Why You Need to Wash Your Beard

You might be wondering, "Why do I even need to wash my beard?" It goes hand in hand with washing your face. To maintain a healthy, good-looking beard, you must wash it and care for it. That goes for using the correct beard wash and conditioner and all the other products afterwards.

Washing your beard will remove all the built-in dirt, chemicals, sweat, and dust. This applies to everyone—especially when you have dirtier working conditions.

Why Use Mad Viking 

Using specialty beard products from Mad Viking Beard Company is the keyway to keeping your beard looking healthy, full, and clean.

Mad Viking Beard products are gentle and do not strip your hair of their natural oils.

The oils in the products absorb super quickly into your beard, so you get to see results in a matter of days. Mad Viking products are trustworthy because we use the most natural ingredients possible while making our products. Quality is of our utmost concern.

Step One

Rinse your bearded area and, massage beard wash or beard shampoo into your beard. After this, rinse it off with water. No need to leave it in too long. Just apply and scrub lightly.

Step Two

Massage the Mad Viking biotin beard conditioner into your beard. Let this sit for about 2-3 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with water. Always make sure to leave it in as long as you can in the shower to maximize results.

Step Three

After getting out of the shower, pat dry and get your beard mostly dried.

Step Four

Put about four drops of beard oil and massage into the beard. You could also mix some beard balm or butter into it as well. It’s up to you to experiment and find your routine based on your own preferences. Our rule of thumb is if it seems to greasy or heavy then pull back the quantity of products being applied. A little goes a long way.

Mad Viking Products 

Mad Viking Beard Company has various beard products available to improve your beard. All the products explained have 17 different kinds of scents as well.

Beard Oil

Beard Oil is an oil that is used to soften beard hair and moisturizes the skin beneath it. If you have an issue with dry, brittle hair or beard itch, oil is the solution for you.

Beard Balm

Mad Viking beard balm is a balm made of cocoa and shea butter, which are products known for softening and moisturizing. There is also an element of beeswax that helps lock in that moisture and create a medium styled hold.

Mad Viking beard balm is notorious for being lightweight and absorbing very quickly.

Beard Butter

The beard butter at Mad Viking is made of all-natural butters. The special butter is designed to condition and relieve itch while your hair grows out.

It provides nourishment to the hair follicles and the hair underneath. It helps prevent dandruff. It’s a cross between a good balm and a good beard oil. It contains no wax like the balm, but it has added butters unlike the oil.

Biotin Beard Wash

Choosing beard wash instead of regular shampoo is the best thing you can do for your beard.

Mad Viking biotin beard wash is specifically designed as a moisturizing wash to keep the beard hydrated and refreshed. Mad Viking's biotin beard wash, unlike regular shampoos, use the most natural ingredients possible instead of cheap harmful chemicals.

This product does not strip your hair of its natural oils. Our biotin beard conditioner pairs very well with our biotin beard wash and gets the job done. Our customers say it is the best conditioner they have ever tried. We will let you be the judge.

Beard Supplements

The beard supplements have many benefits. They are growth supplements that use Biotin, and other various Vitamins to achieve fuller, thicker facial hair. We recommend using supplements if you feel that you can benefit from using them. While they are not miracle hair growth solutions, they will give you more vibrant thicker and healthier hair. We’ve tested for a year on ourselves and a few other volunteers. We believe the results will speak for themselves.
