Everyone loves a softer beard
The number one complaint people have about beards is that they’re rough and wiry. Let’s be honest—no one wants to nuzzle up to that. Beardbrand Beard Softener hydrates, nourishes, and strengthens the hair, helping to prevent the damage and breakage that make your beard feel untouchable. The result is a healthier beard that is softer, easier to manage, and 100% more touchable (and that keeps everyone happy).

BEARD SOFTENER / BEARD CONDITIONER VS. HAIR CONDITIONER
Beard hair is different from head hair. Let’s do a quick test—first, feel your beard hair and then feel your head hair (if you’re lucky enough to still have it). They feel pretty different, don’t they? For most men, beard hair is far more coarse than their head hair. That extra coarseness requires a little extra oomph in the moisturizing department and your typical drugstore hair conditioner isn’t built for the task. Beardbrand Beard Softener is a beard conditioner made by beardsmen for beardsmen, and most men report that their beard is significantly softer after the first use.

ADVANCED BEARD SOFTENING
If you want to make your beard even more soft, touchable, and easy to style, try these advanced beard softening techniques:
- Co-washing (conditioner washing): It sounds counter-intuitive, but instead of using a Beard Wash every time you shower, try using Beard Softener instead. Beard Softener contains enough cleansing ingredients to take care of any routine bacteria in your beard while keeping it moisturized. Reserve the stronger Beard Wash for a weekly deep-clean or for days when your beard is extra soiled with sweat and dirt.
- Let it soak: Apply Beard Softener at the start of your shower and let it soak in while you wash the rest of your body. The more time it spends on your hair, the more time it has to work its magic.
- Leave it in: For the ultimate beard softening boost, apply a small amount of Beard Softener to a damp beard, and skip the rinse altogether. Set it and forget it while you go about your day. Just be sure to give your beard a thorough rinse before adding more Beard Softener the next day.
Keep in mind that everyone’s beard is different, so experiment with these three techniques to find what works best for you.
HOW TO USE BEARD SOFTENER
Start with a damp beard. Squeeze a dime-sized amount into your hands, rub together, and apply to beard. Focus on the ends of your beard and allow it to soak for one to two minutes. Rinse. See above for advanced softening techniques.

I had originally ordered the Citrus Spice fragrance but I don't like the scent of clove, and Citrus Spice didn't suit me, so I returned in, fuss free and am exchanging it for the Old Money fragrance (we'll try that). I do like the conditioning and softening effect on my coarse, white beard and moustache.
Excellent experience of a purchase of "old Money" beard softener . Works well in softening my horsetail texture beard! looking forward to more purchases of other products and fragrances.
The beard softener works absolutely amazing! Smells great and feels great, I just want to grow my beard out like ZZ Top and sleep in it!
