If you are asking yourself this question, the first thing we have to tell you is to stay calm. You don’t need to get hysterical or think of drastic measures, like getting rid of your beard. Both the face and the head lose hair every day, it is a totally natural process and it happens to everyone, without distinction. However, there are times when the loss is a little more abundant. In this post Burnt Whiskey Beard experts are going to talk a little about the subject. We hope that for your peace of mind and so that you only worry about the care of your beard.
In principle yes, it is normal
As we say, hair loss – no matter where it is from – is totally normal and is part of your body’s natural renewal process. We constantly lose part of our hair, just as we get rid of dead skin cells and so much other “waste” that we don’t need. This process of renewal, however, is relatively slow and subtle, and we hardly ever realize that it is happening non-stop.
In addition, when it comes to head and beard hair, there are times of the year when this fall or renewal is more pronounced. Specifically throughout the fall. What makes sense if you think about it a bit? Don’t forget that your beard is alive, just like you. And that it is not just about showing off and taking care of your beard. You also have to understand how it works. Some conjectural conditioning factors such as stress also have a lot to do with it. So, first of all, you don’t have to worry too much.
When should you pay attention to facial hair loss?
Losing some hair while caring for your beard is totally normal. But sometimes that loss is very high. How do you know what we mean by “very high”? Believe us, it is known. Take a look at your beard comb or beard brush after grooming. If there are a lot of hooked hairs, or if you find more than usual in the bathtub or sink, you may need to keep a close eye on your beard.
Don’t jump to conclusions right away and pay attention to that loss for a long time. We speak of weeks or months. In the meantime, you can use natural beard-strengthening products that don’t harm your skin. If the loss of hair is constant and continues to be above average, there may be a problem. The first thing is to consult a dermatologist.
Most of the problems with beards are usually in the skin that is under them and that we hardly ever see. Tell your doctor about your concerns and always follow their instructions. Although we advise against the use of anti-hair loss products such as monoxides and we prefer natural products, listen to your doctor and put yourself in their hands.
Some Pro Tips To Help You
Always as a complement to what a medical skin professional tells you, there are some things that you can do with the care of your beard and its maintenance. They will not automatically stop the fall, but they will not be a hindrance either and will contribute to a healthier beard.
1. Use The Right Beard Products
We repeat it a lot on the blog because it is important. Beard products are specifically formulated to be applied to the beard. Taking into account how are the skin of your face and the characteristics of the hair.
The ingredients used to make them are natural and not aggressive with your beard. Using any non-specific or low-quality product can end up damaging your beard and accelerating the fall.
2. Lots of Pampering
Caring for your beard is, at the same time, an obligation and a pleasure. Just like the skin on your face. That is why you have to be delicate with your beard. When you wash it, when you apply beard shampoo, beard oil, or when you brush it… do not be harsh. Better to do everything delicately. Do not yank your beard, or treat your skin in any way. Gentle, leisurely gestures and massages. In addition, beard combs and brushes that are respectful of your beard and do not split the hairs or, directly, pull them out. A good brush can help stimulate the roots of the hair and prevent hair loss.
3. Diet and Healthy Life
Indeed, what you eat and your lifestyle also have to do with beard growth. Hair is often weakened because it is not sufficiently nourished, or because it lacks an essential component that your body should generate naturally. And that’s where food, exercise, and the absence of stress have a lot of influence. The beard is part of you and if you are healthy, your beard will be too. Beware. Your beard will also appreciate it.
By following these tips, taking care of the skin on your face, and consulting a dermatology specialist, your beard should remain shiny and happy, even though it may lose some hair. Above all, do not obsess and enjoy your beard. It has to be a source of happiness, not anguish.
