3 | Understand Why Your Beard Itches
Oh but it itches! We’ve all experienced beard itch at some point in our lives. It’s uncomfortable. Do you know why it itches? There’s a few reasons, actually. First, your beard hair/ stubble is sharp and wiry. As the hairs grow they arch and those sharp little tips stab you in the face. Another reason why you itch is usually due to the fact that you’ve been washing your fledgling beard with regular bar soaps or shampoo. This dries out your skin and makes your beard hairs even more course. Shampoos and body soaps are like taking a wrecking ball to your beard.
