Clean With Shampoo and Conditioner

Always start by washing your beard. This will reduce the texture of your facial hair, allowing you to make it straighter.

When cleaning your beard, avoid utilizing a normal shampoo as it might strip away the natural sebum oils which your beard desperately needs to maintain its health. The best thing to do is to use a gentle shampoo designed specifically for beard use plus a beard conditioner that keeps your beard soft as well as manageable.

Oil and Blow Dry

Once you’re done cleaning, gently dampen your beard with a towel. Then grab your beard comb and some beard oil.

Apply a small amount of beard oil and using the cold-air option, gently blow your hair from the roots going upwards. Repeat the same procedure by blowing downwards and also combing down. This will help straighten your facial hair, but you’ll obviously want to finish it off by blowing downwards.
