How To Use Scotch Porter: Beard Care



BEARD WASH

Apply our Moisturizing Beard Wash to your wet beard. Gently massage it in, like you do when you rub your chin in deep thought. Rinse it well with warm water. Don’t stop until the suds have left your face.

PRO TIP: Only wash your beard with sulfate-free shampoo or wash, since shampoos with sulfates are a follicle menace and leave your beard coarse, dry and frizzy. If your beard is already as coarse and dry as sandpaper, limit your washes to no more than once per week or else you’ll rob your beard of moisture, and that’s unkind. If you’re a fine or oily-haired gent, wash your beard no more than once every 5 days, or else it will look very sad and straggly. Men of all hair types: feel free to condition your beards up to three times per week, in place of shampooing it often.

BEARD CONDITIONER

Work our Hydrate & Nourish Beard Conditioner into your beard thoroughly, paying special attention to the ends of your beard. Leave it in your beard for 2 - 5 minutes. Maybe check some emails, Tweet, and scroll through our Instagram. Then rinse.

PRO TIP: After rinsing the conditioner from your beard, partially dry it. Here’s how:

  1. Squeeze excess water from your beard.
  2. Use an old cotton t-shirt (perhaps something your ex left behind) or microfiber cloth and squeeze firmly and gently (don’t rub!) to remove excess water. Or use lint-free paper towels to get the job done. Just remember to make them lint-free. A face full of white fuzz is not a good look, unless your beard is actually white. NEVER dry your beard with a towel. EVER. The rough surfaces of bath towels snag beard hair and cause unnecessary frizz. Why would you voluntarily do that to yourself?

LEAVE-IN BEARD CONDITIONER

After rinsing out our Hydrate & Nourish Beard Conditioner rub our Restorative Beard Conditioner into your beard thoroughly from root to tip. Leave in and style as usual.

PRO TIP: For best results, follow up with the Scotch Porter Beard Balm and Smoothing Beard Serum.

BEARD BALM

Massage a dime (small beards) to quarter sized (big beards) amount of our Scotch Porter Beard Balm into your beard thoroughly.

PRO TIP: Getting the right amount of product on your beard takes some time. Be patient, grasshopper. You can determine the exact amount for your beard’s texture and length as you go along. These are merely starting points.

SWAG THE BEARD

Comb and brush your beard into your desired style with one of our awesome combs and brushes, making sure your beard style reflects who you are and what you came to do. Remember: your beard is a reflection of yourself, so make it count.

PRO TIP: A really great comb and brush is necessary to maintain your beard properly. Those cheap plastic combs they hand out in holiday gift bags can snag your beard hair, causing breakage and hair loss. You don’t need that negativity in your life. Also, avoid combing your beard aggressively or fast. It’s cool that you’re such a tough guy, but being gentle to your beard is the way to go. It’s important to comb it from top to bottom and from side to the center, since this helps tame your hair to grow in a desired direction. Follow up by brushing your beard with a hairbrush (again, top to bottom and side to center).

A Boar’s Hair Brush is recommended, as the power of the boar ignites your own natural hair oils to keep your beard shiny, healthy, and clean.

BEARD SERUM

After styling, apply one pump or less (short beards) or two pumps (long, dense beards) of our Scotch Porter Smoothing Beard Serum to your dry beard. Smooth it out with your hands.

PRO TIP: The key to a well moisturized, shiny and frizz-free beard all day everyday is to lock in that moisture and smooth the hair cuticles down. While every point in the SP Grooming Process is vital, the serum is the real MVP since it keeps your beard in check throughout the day. Protection is the priority.
