A frizzy or curled beard requires certain treatments to smooth it out. In this article, here are all my tips for taking good care of your curling or frizzy beard. 

Having a thick and full beard is the wish of many men. But when the beard starts to frizz or curl, it can quickly become a nightmare for some. Especially if you want to have a long beard , like a 10-day beard or even a hipster beard . It is true that this type of beard, in our aesthetic vision, requires that it be perfectly smooth.

Here are all my tips for properly maintaining your curly or curly beard.

Why do we have frizzy or curling beards?

The beard that curls or curls for genetic reasons


If you have a frizzy or curling beard, you only have one thing to blame: nature. And your genes more precisely. Indeed, we are not all equal in front of the hair:

  • some men will have fine hair while others will have very thick hair

  • some men will have light hair while in others it will be very brown

  • some men will have a lot of hair on many parts of the body, such as the back, while others will be beardless

  • Finally, some men will have smooth hair and others will have curly or curly hair.

The main reason that leads to beard hair that curls or curls: the shape of the hair follicle. This little envelope under the skin in which the hair will grow. If the follicle is straight, then the hair will grow straight. But the more the hair follicle will be curved, the more the hair will be frizzy or curly. And of course, you can't change the shape of your hair follicle. And on this subject, again we are not all equal, men from certain regions of the globe, such as Africa, are going to have a hair follicle on average more curved than men from other regions.


Also, you have to accept your hair because in any case, you can't change it!

Beard that curls or balls due to lack of hydration

Well, maybe one thing you can do is moisturize your beard. This advice obviously only concerns men who do not think about moisturizing their long beard on a daily basis. Indeed, a dehydrated hair, and therefore dry, is a hair that will be more fragile, finer and it is therefore a beard hair that can tend to curl or curl.

The beard that curls or balls by using the wrong products

Finally, the last point that can generate beard hair that curls or curls is the use of care products that are not suitable for the beard, its hair and the skin under the beard. I can't say it enough, don't use hair shampoo to wash your beard. Use a very specific beard shampoo, as beard hair is different from human hair. Of course, if it's a beard and hair shampoo, a 2 in 1, there's no problem.

How to take care of a frizzy or curled beard?


As you will have understood, having a curly or curly beard requires some maintenance, in two forms:

  • an interview to take good care of your beard like any other type of beard: the hair needs to be cared for so that it is as beautiful as possible, as shiny as possible

  • a specific maintenance because if your beard is frizzy or curled, it may mean that it lacks hydration.

Wash your frizzy or curling beard well

The first care to do to have a beautiful beard is simply to clean the beard well. You don't have to have a dirty beard . Because a beard that curls or curls will be a beard that will contain bacteria, dirt, pollution, cigarette smoke, dust even more than any other beard. To properly wash your frizzy or curled beard, you have two options:

Moisturize your frizzy or curling beard

A care that is important to bring daily to your beard is to moisturize it well. Because remember, a lack of hydration can be the cause of a frizzy or curled beard. Keeping your beard moisturized is important because:

  • moisturizing the hair of your beard that curls or curls will improve the quality of the beard hair, strengthen it. Less fragile, it will be less likely to break at the tips.

  • moisturizing the hair well, you will have stronger and shinier hair.

  • moisturizing your frizzy or curling beard will prevent you from having an itchy beard .

  • finally, by moisturizing your curly or curly beard, you will moisturize the skin under the beard and thus prevent the appearance of beard dandruff .

To properly moisturize your frizzy or curling beard, you will mainly have to use a beard oil , once a day or even twice a day if you have really dry beard hair.

Style the beard that curls or curls

A beard that curls or beard is a beard that needs to be styled! Because generally, this type of beard is a long beard. And yes, it's misleading, but if we unfolded the curly beard hair, we would see a good length! And a frizzy or curled beard can be a beard with knots in the beard .


To properly style his curly or curly beard, you have two options:

The beard brush


Hair that curls or curls may be difficult to comb. You will then need to have a beard brush to style it properly. You can also use a beard comb , but for that use a comb with close teeth, to help you untangle any knots.

The beard balm

A care product that you can use, both to moisturize the hair of your beard that is frizzy or curled, but also to discipline the hairs (and perhaps make them a little less frizzy), is to use a beard balm. I advise you to use a beard balm that has beeswax as an ingredient, because with such an ingredient you will be able to give your beard the shape you want more easily. It works a bit like a hair wax.

The straightener for your frizzy or curling beard

For those who really want to have a smooth beard, the solution could lie in using a beard straightener. This accessory is well suited to people with frizzy or curling beards because it will perfectly smooth the hair. But be careful, do not use it too often because the heat of the straightener can, in the long run, damage the beard hair, weaken it. Remember to moisturize the hair well, morning and evening, to strengthen it.
