Welcome to the Routines page. Here, we'll walk through some simple and effective routines you can do each day to get the best results for your beard and hair.
What You Need: Essential Beard Kit, Brush or Comb, Towel
Use the Beard Wash (no more than twice a week) to prevent build, dandruff, and clean the skin under the beard. On other days, wet a wash cloth with hot water (as much as you can handle), wring it out so it’s not dripping everywhere, and cover your beard with it until the hairs are soft and pores are open.
Put a dime to quarter-sized amount of Beard Oil (best at night if you’re staying in or going to bed) or Beard Balm or Butter (medium to long beards, heading out) and rub your hands together until the product is spread throughout.
Start at the neckline (where the beard starts) and run your fingers and palm through to the chin and cheeks, getting the beard and skin below. It’s ok to mess the beard up a little bit to make sure you get all of it.
Use your brush or comb to spread the oil, balm or butter throughout the beard and style it—make it look good.
Your beard smells better than the Old Spice guy on a horse. You’re ready to take on the world now.
What You Need: Healthy Hair Kit, Comb or a Brush, Towel
Use the Shampoo (no more than twice a week), really massage it into the scalp and through the hair. Feel free to comb or brush your hair while the shampoo is in. Let it sit for 30-60 seconds before rinsing out thoroughly.
Pat your hair to remove excess water, but leave hair mildly damp. Apply Scalp Oil directly the scalp and skin and under the hair and massage in deeply until the skin absorbs it.
If waves are the preference, put a dime to quarter-sized amount of Wave Balm in your hair in the direction of your wave pattern or growth pattern from the crown out. Brush in the same direction as the Wave Balm until your arms fall off to get the waves spinning.
For all other hair styles/types, apply a quarter-sized amount of Hair Butter to your hands, rub your palms together until the Hair Butter melts. Apply to your hair from root to end and rub/comb in until the butter is fully absorbed into the hair. You can tie your hair up, twist/braid it, cover it after to hold in the moisture and nutrients over night.
Head and Body Shaving Routine
What You Need: Clippers, Balding Clippers, Razor, Shave Oil, Wash Cloth
- For hair: How you get your hair to the lowest possible level is up to you. I use two different clippers to get as close to the skin as possible. Razors work much better when the hair is super low.
- Once the hair is low, dampen a wash cloth with hot water (only as hot as your skin can handle), wring out the excess water and place it over the area you intend to shave.
- After 30-45 seconds, remove the wash cloths, and apply the Shave Oil directly to your head heavily. Spread the oil across the surface of your head until there is a thin layer of Shave Oil everywhere you intend to shave.
- Then, use your razor of choice to shave the desired area. I tend to shave with the hair first time around and then different direction for tough spots.
- Once you are finished with your shaving routine (you may shower, wipe access shavings with a cloth, etc.), apply shave oil again, but this time rubbing it into the skin until it is fully absorbed into the skin. Helps with the healing and soothing of the shave without the burning alcohol feeling—unless you like that sort of thing.
