To make a mask of your beard, there is nothing very complicated:

  • take your beard oil and apply it in large quantities to your beard. You should apply it to damp hair.

  • Apply a hot towel to your pointed beard, the heat will open the scales of your beard hair.

  • head for the sofa to take a short nap of 10 to 20 minutes, the time to leave the mask on.
