A dry beard is not at all pleasant on a daily basis. It can even be uncomfortable. Here are my tips to stop having a dry beard.

A dry beard is a real disadvantage for bearded men: not only is it unpleasant to the touch, but it is also not very pretty. Indeed, generally a dry beard is a somewhat dull beard that does not leave a good general feeling on the face. Especially since a dry beard is a beard that also stings!

Here are my tips for not having a dry beard.

Why do we have dry beards?


First of all, you should know that if you have a dry beard, it's for two reasons:

The occasional dry beard

Either because your skin under the beard is occasionally dry.  In this case, you will need to set up a routine to moisturize your beard and your skin under the beard. This happens regularly with each change of season, and especially when winter arrives. Our skin is drier, especially on the hands, but also on the face. Hence the fact that you have a dry beard.

Permanent dry beard

Either because, naturally, you have dry skin. Thus, the sebaceous glands under your skin do not produce enough sebum, which will hydrate the hair of your beard. In this case, it will be necessary to provide a routine specifically adapted to dry skin.

Thus, any bearded man can have a dry beard, whether you have a 3-day beard or a long beard for several weeks.

How to stop having a dry beard?

To no longer have a dry beard, it will be necessary to take care of your beard and the skin under the beard. 

Wash your dry beard well

Soap against dry beard


Gentlemen, to no longer have a dry beard, you will have to change the way you wash your face! You will therefore need to provide yourself with a surgras soap which has the particularity of being perfectly adapted to all people with dry facial skin. Indeed, surgras soap is enriched with vegetable oil, sometimes vegetable butter, which will help moisturize the skin and gently cleanse it.


Then, you will have to stop taking very hot showers to stop having a dry beard ! Because the heat of the shower damages the hair by removing the sebum it contains. And without serum, beard hair is much drier.

Finally, stop using shower gel, if you don't have surgras soap I advise you to invest  in a washing product perfectly suited for the beard, such as a beard shampoo . The shampoos are also enriched with vegetable oil, such as castor oil, which will allow the skin under the beard to be deeply hydrated.

Moisturize your dry beard

Similarly, to no longer have a dry beard, you will have to moisturize it deeply! And for that there is nothing simpler.

Hydrate your dry beard with beard oil


The most radical way to stop having a dry beard is to use beard oil every day. ​ And I particularly recommend castor oil for the beard which is magical for deeply moisturizing the hair of the beard and the skin under the beard. By using a beard oil every day, morning and evening, you will find that your beard will no longer dry out quickly.

Hydrate your dry beard with a mask

If you don't have beard oil at home, you can also go ​ to your kitchen and get whatever olive oil, sunflower oil, or walnut oil you have. in a closet! Well, of course, I advise you to use an organic vegetable oil. Indeed, all these vegetable oils are known for their moisturizing properties. You can make a beard mask with these oils:

  • apply vegetable oil directly to your beard

  • let stand for at least 30 minutes.

  • go rinse, preferably using a surgras soap or beard shampoo.

Hydrate your dry beard with a balm

Beard balm can be an excellent treatment for moisturizing the beard, but also the skin under the beard. The composition of beard balms makes them excellent moisturizing products because they contain vegetable oils. These vegetable oils are excellent for your dry beard because, as they are rich in Omega-6 and Omega-9, they will moisturize.
